Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake

In addition to my chocolate and coconut obsession, I also have an obsession with raspberry chocolate. It all started with Dove's Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream, a mouthful of heaven comprised of vanilla ice cream swirled with raspberry sorbet and Dove dark chocolate. Undoubtedly the best thing I've ever eaten. Sadly, it was discontinued a few [...]

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 [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

For years, I was so excited to go out for Thai food because Thai restaurants were the only place I could order mango sticky rice for dessert. For some reason, it never occurred to me to make my own... and I never realized how easy it is! For most mango sticky rice recipes, you have to soak the [...]

Frozen Berry Sangria

I never realized how easy it was to make frozen sangria until I was stranded by the pool one day with nothing but a bottle of red wine, a few bags of frozen fruit. Turns out, that's all you need! It's entirely up to you which fruit you want to add. Personally I like to [...]

Vegan Snickers Ice Cream Bar

Sometimes, when I'm making a new recipe, it doesn't always turn out the way I'd hoped. Other times, it turns out even better. This is one of those times. I have to give credit to Minimalist Baker for inspiring this vegan Snickers ice cream bar recipe. I had to tweak it a bit and eliminate [...]

Berry Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

For this breakfast smoothie bowl, I recommend using plain non-fat Greek yogurt, as it has only 120 calories per cup, 6 grams of sugar, and 22 grams of protein! I like Trader Joe’s brand, but Sage and Chobani are also good brands. The yogurt itself tends to be too bitter for me, so I like to blend it [...]

Vegan Plantain Tacos with Mango Lime Sauce

A few years ago, I went to my very first vegan restaurant in L.A. with a friend of mine who was a strict vegan. While looking over the menu, I had no idea what half of the menu items were Seitan? Tempeh? It was like a foreign language. So I settled on an item that [...]
