Revenge of the Veggie Benny

We've been on a hollandaise binge around here lately. After trying it on asparagus and rice, the next logical step was a Veggie Benny. We used to order this at a favorite breakfast spot in Seattle, but it was only vegetarian, not vegan, and had regular hollandaise on it. Once I went vegan, I thought I'd never enjoy my beloved Veggie Benny again. Happily I was wrong, wrong, wrong. I was so excited to make this, I forgot to make potatoes to go with. We never missed them. But next time I'll bake up a batch of spuds just so we have something else to dunk in the sauce. ...more

Forbidden Edamame Cakes with Roasted Carrot Miso Puree + Quick Pickled Radishes

Sometimes I wonder when and how “healthy” food got such a bad rap? People’s preconceived notion that healthy is not tasty, and vice versa, motivates me to create recipes that are drool worthy and nutrient dense. As a Registered Dietitian, I also think it is important to be able to understand food, how to cook and prepare it, and how to help people eat better whether it’s with a food allergy, health condition, or cultural practice. Ultimately, this is my goal with sharing my recipes on my blog.  Today’s post is extra special as it’s Registered Dietitian Day!...more

Chocolate Crepes with nutella and apple filling

Sunday morning, I was awakened by beautiful sunshine peaking in through the window. I got up and made myself a cup of tea, while humming an old song tune I haven’t heard in days. We are not used to waking up to bright sunshine except for the months of July and August and when it happens it makes you feel happy and so much more alive. My husband was gone grouse grinding, daughter was still in bed and I thought to go out and get some fresh air after having tea. ...more

Mu Shu Veggies with Perfect Little Pancakes and Hoisin Sauce

I can't believe how good this is. No really. Like I just want to eat this same meal over and over, every day. I actually did make it two nights in a row, just to be sure I wasn't mouth-halucinating when we ate it the first time, and no, I wasn't. This is officially one of my favorite things to eat, ever. ...more

Cornmeal Crusted Avocado Tacos

I’m a huge taco fan, and honestly I can’t believe I haven’t shared a taco recipe sooner. Typically, when I eat out at a Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant I order grilled vegetable fajitas, even if they aren’t on the menu. I love being able to build my own taco to my preference: first a layer of rice, followed by the grilled squash, onions, and peppers, a spoonful of black beans, pico, lettuce, and last but not least a big dollop of guacamole. In my taco zealous, I end up over filling each corn tortilla, creating a messy, but delicious dinner....more

Any winter squash or vegetables can be substituted into this recipe....more
