Soda water is [...]

3-Ingredient Lentil Dip

The first time I tried this recipe, I didn't even know what lentils were. A friend of mine served it at a get-together, and I couldn't stop eating it. This was also the recipe that made me fall in love with goat cheese. Most lentil dip recipes use feta cheese, but my friend had used [...]

Baked Cauliflower Tacos

This was not only the first time I've ever tasted baked cauliflower tacos, but also the first time I tried Vegenaise. (For those who don't know, Vegenaise is a dairy-free mayonnaise, and it's delicious!) The tacos are topped with a tartar sauce made with Vegenaise, diced dill pickle, and a dash of sea salt.

Baked Sweet Potato Tots with Honey Mustard Dip

There's a German restaurant up the street from my house that has the best sweet potato tots. I go there all the time just to order the tots, but for some reason it never occurred to me before to learn how to make my own. I thought it was going to be difficult, but I just [...]

Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I added the option to use chopped spinach instead of parsley. (I prefer the taste.) B) I use quinoa instead of bulgur for it's nutritional values. (Low glycemic, gluten-free packed with fiber!) C) I added diced cucumbers and crumbled goat cheese [...]
