Thai Millet Salad with Peanut Dressing

I found this amazing little Thai restaurant down the street from my house and now I’m madly in love. In the midst of trying to recreate as many recipes as I possibly can, I created this Thai Millet Salad. The inspiration for this dish came from a side salad we recently had. Although we loved the crunch of all the different veggies along with the sweet and savory peanut dressing; I felt as though it was just missing something. In my cookbook LETTUCE FEAST I have a recipe for berry arugula quinoa salad and that gave me the idea…

Vegan Gyoza (Pan Fried Vegetable Dumplings)

Willie and I recently took a a trip to Tokyo, Japan; it was so much fun and I have been meaning to write a very detailed blog post about it, but haven’t had the time so I’ll give you a semi short version today. During the trip one of the things I fell in love with was the food; everything I ate in Tokyo I LOVED. On one of our day trips to Harajuku (a subsection of Tokyo) we found a little restaurant that sold veggie dumplings. Finding vegetarian meals can be a bit of a challenge in…

Hi friends! I’m back with another easy, and delicious vegan recipe that will knock your socks off. These Vegan Sambusas are the perfect appetizer for your next gathering, or side dish for a homemade African meal. My secret to making these vegan sambusas simple and fast is by using pre-made phyllo dough, and baking them instead of deep frying. (which is the traditional way) Crispy, and buttery on the outside, rich and full of flavor on the inside. Prepared to be blown away by a flavorful spice combination that will send your tastebuds to Northern African heaven. Sambusas…

Vegan Tostadas – Jackfruit con Salsa Verde

Hey guys! Ya’ll know we LOVE Mexican food on this blog so if you are looking for a easy and delicious vegan meat substitute look no further than jackfruit. Jackfruit is one of the most versatile fruits in the world. When ripe jackfruit is sweet and tastes almost like candy; but when it’s unripe jackfruit can be used to mimic different types of vegan “meats” like this Jackfruit con Salsa Verde. My vegan interpretation of carnitas con salsa verde can be used as a filling in tamales, tacos, burritos, or on Vegan Tostadas like we did.This recipe…

Vegan Mint Chip Ice Cream!

In fact it’s so good that when I finally received my ice cream maker in the mail, I knew it was the FIRST flavor ice cream I was going to make. First, when creating this recipe I decided to color the ice cream with one of my favorite teas (yes you…

Vegan Sofritos – (Chipotle Copycat)

Hola mi amigas, today I’m here to share with you an easy, and delicious recipe for vegan sofritos. I recall that when I first became a vegetarian my boyfriend and I took a trip to AZ to visit his family. When we first landed we were STARVING and there were very few veg friendly options near where we were so we opted for Chipotle. (I was never a HUGE fan of them, but it’ll do in a crunch.) – so I decided to get a burrito with the sofritos and some other goodies, when we arrived to our destination…
