Sweet Potato Turmeric Soup with Zhoug & Crispy Green Garbanzos

It has been really cold in Los Angeles lately (I know, you're thinking it can't be that cold.. but for being used to the 80 degree weather here, 50s are pretty cold haha), and all I've wanted to eat are hearty, creamy, warming soups.  This one sure does deliver, trust me!  Creamy Sweet Potato Turmeric [...]

French Onion Burger

Have you ever had a craving for French onion soup & a burger at the same time?  I have, and well, that's how this recipe came about.  I've always loved French onion soup, I mean, who doesn't, but I never have found it to be filling enough for a whole meal.  Combining these flavors into [...]

Scallops in Kimchi Broth, with Pickled Habanero & Shallot

This recipe seems really decadent and fancy, doesn't it?  Or like it might be hard to find these ingredients at your local grocery store?  Well guess what, it's totally not!  I partnered up with Milk & Eggs to bring you this amazing date night recipe.  Milk & Eggs is a food delivery service that sends you farm [...]

Tom Kha Gai Soup with Rice Noodles & Beech Mushrooms

I've always loved Asian Cuisine, the basis of it being some of my favorite ingredients.  Almost every dish has some combination of ginger, garlic, scallions, chiles, and coconut cream- and those alone are ingredients I try to use as often as possible.  Asian food also is so healing and beneficial nutrient wise, as its usually [...]

Roasted Cauliflower & Parsnip Soup with Pickled Green Apple

Cauliflower is one of those ingredients that is a staple in vegan cooking, at least in my opinion.  It's so versatile and has such mild flavor, that you can really adapt it and use it for so many recipes.  I love pairing cauliflower with parsnips, because parsnips also have a mild flavor profile, but add [...]

Butternut Squash & Kale Minestrone

Soups are one of my most made foods during the winter months.  They're just so nourishing, warm, and healthy - not to mention easy!  Minestrone is a classic Italian soup, that is made with a bunch of different vegetables & pasta.  It has such a nice flavor from the tomatoes & herbs, and pairing it [...]

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd's pie is one of my favorite dishes to make around the holiday's.  Theres just something about it that is so warming, hearty, and satisfying.  There are plenty of vegan shepherd's pie recipes out there, but most of them have a bunch of vegetables and all this stuff, and while delicious, doesn't replicate a true [...]

French Onion Pot Pie

I don't know about you, but personally, I love pot pies.  They're just so hearty and comforting, and are decently easy to make.  Now that it's getting deeper into fall & winter, I wanted to make a pot pie recipe for you guys, but I wanted it to be different.  There are so many recipes [...]

Purple Kale & Corn Chowder

Now that it's just transitioning into fall here in Los Angeles, fresh summer corn is in its final stretch.  I had some ears of corn from the farmers market that I wanted to use up in a fall inspired recipe.  This chowder is so creamy and decadent, but is also soy & nut free (on [...]

Chipotle Pumpkin Chili, with Jalapeno Cornbread

Since fall weather is just refusing to show itself in Los Angeles, I decided to bring a little fall to us by making something with pumpkin.  Since we do most of our shopping in local farmers markets, there is always a lot of seasonal ingredients, one of the most popular now being pumpkin.  I had [...]
