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 [...]

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 [...]

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Toast

Ever since my trip to London this summer, I've been on an heirloom tomato kick. London has an abundance of great restaurants, all which seemed to offer heirloom mozzarella salads and heirloom toasts. All I could think of upon arriving home was buying a big bag of tomatoes and whipping up my own. First on the list was this [...]

Berry Chia Jam

I will never buy jam or jelly from a grocery store ever again. Neither will you after you make this delicious berry chia jam. There's just something about all-natural, homemade jam that tastes so much better than store-bought jam. Fresh with the just right amount of sweetness. Not to mention, chia seeds are loaded with [...]

Coco-Roons: My New Favorite Vegan Cookies!

If you've read any of my other blog posts, then you know how much I LOVE healthy snacks. Especially if they're vegan. And gluten-free. And contain coconut.  I was shopping at Walmart this weekend and my friend and I discovered Sejoyia Coco-Roons in the gluten-free section. We were looking for healthy poolside snacks, and needless to [...]

Quinoa & Oats Breakfast Bowl

For this breakfast bowl, you can use either rolled oats or steel-cut oats. Steel cut oats sit lower on the glycemic index, but they take longer to cook, at least 30 minutes. (Those on a gluten-free diet will want to make sure to use pure oats that don't contain wheat.) For the granola, I recommend [...]

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cups

I can’t believe I went my whole life without knowing how easy it is to make your own chocolate. And of course, after learning this, my first impulse was to make my childhood favorite candy – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Sorry Reese’s, but these homemade peanut butter cups are so much better! They’re vegan, gluten-free, [...]

Homemade Coconut Popsicles

In high school, my friends and I used to buy coconut popsicles every day in the school cafeteria. They tasted just like these popsicles (minus the whole dairy-free, sugar-free element.) I recently remembered these pops and realized how easy they'd be to make, considering I make most of my homemade ice cream with coconut milk. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
