Classic Potato Leek Soup

Potato Leek Soup is a classic dish served with a simple salad or a slice of wholesome bread (gluten-free for me, please!). Who doesn't love a warm and hearty soup, especially in the cooler Autumn and Winter seasons?! I love the simplicity and versatility of this dish. It can be made vegan with a simple broth or you could also choose a healing bone broth instead. I've made it both ways and they are both so satisfying and delicious! I usually have a variety of homemade broths i

Blackened Baby Peppers

I love this side dish as a colorful addition to almost any savory meal. They are fast and easy to make, as well as sweet, flavorful and full of nutrition. Peppers are loaded with vitamins A and C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber.

Ayurvedic Cleansing Kitchari

Over the last two weeks, I went on vacation with family and ditched my normally high-vibe diet for restaurant meals laden with gluten and sugar, which was wonderful at the time but I sure was surprised to see that I gained 8 pounds in the process! It sounds shocking but I know it's just inflammation that I can turn around with a 3-day Ayurvedic Kitchari Cleanse. Kitchari has been my go-to cleanse for years, ever since first making it at a cooking class in Rishikesh, India. It

Silky Smooth Butternut Squash Soup + Variations

The first harvest of butternut squash is in, signaling that Autumn is just around the corner. It’s my *favorite* of the seasons (especially for cooking) so I’m very excited! :) Even more exciting is that I’ve been working with Mother Earth Food to share simple, wholesome recipes with their customers so I was thrilled when they wrote to tell me that squash season is here. The first recipe to come to my mind was this classic… Silky Smooth Butternut Squash soup. I love this soup

Lemony Kale Salad

Kale has been a superfood craze for years now, and for good reason! Not only is it a cruciferous vegetable which is great for helping your body detox, but it’s also a great source of vitamins and minerals. Just one cup of raw kale has more than the recommended daily allowance of vitamins A, C, and K. It’s also contains B6, calcium, potassium, copper, and manganese. This salad is easy to make and keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days! This recipe was written for Mother

Easy Creamy "Cheesy" Vegan Broccoli Soup

This simple vegan, gluten-free, and nutrient-dense soup was a delicious surprise in our house last night! Just a few ingredients and quick cooking time will make it a staple for us, but the best part is all of the nutrition. Broccoli is great for helping the body detox and is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. I also love the added nutritional yeast flakes by Lewis Labs because it is not fortified or sweetened, making it the "cleanest" option I've found,

Raw Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake

I was so impressed with last week's Raw Vegan Mango Pie that once my family (quickly) finished it, I was left craving more fruity pie flavor and was inspired to keep creating! I've enjoyed vegan cheesecakes in the past and realized that coconut kefir + cashew cream could make a yummy sweet & tart version. My family loved it and I'm sure you will too! *See notes for easy substitutes Active time ~ 20 minutes, 2-4 hours total 8 servings Ingredients Crust 1 cup (around 15-17) pit

Raw Vegan Mango Pie

OMG! This pie turned out INCREDIBLE. A couple of weeks ago, we hosted a gathering and a woman brought this incredibly yummy pie. She gave me a brief description of her process and told me she'd get me her card to connect but vanished into the night, never to be heard from again. :( I'm not sure who she came with and haven't been able to find her, but this pie was to die for. So... I gave it a shot and made my own version, It's raw, vegan, easy, healthy, and SO delicious! 30 m
