Sprout-Lovers' Sandwich. Vegan Lunch.

Sprouts. Crunchy, zesty, cool, crisp, perky green sprouts. There was a time when no vegetarian, natural food store, hippie-chic cafe or vegan sandwich was complete without a poofy mound of lovable sprouts. So this sandwich is for all my fellow sprout lovers out there.

This Sunny Citrus Sprout Sandwich is layered with spicy German mustard, rounds of red onion, plentiful strips of crisp, smoky tempeh bacon, some pink and red citrus (to put my own unique sweet spin on things) and of course - sprouts. And some sprouted raw pepitas. I found these sprouts and the seeds at my local farmer's market. Super fresh and happiness-inducing. Build this sprout sandwich and have a happy, crunchy, tree-hugging, blue sky kind of day..


Vegan White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies!

These cream and caramel colored, chewy-on-the-inside, crisp-edges-on-the-outside, Vegan White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies have cast a tropical cookie spell on me. My long lost craving for white choco-mac cookies has been re-inspired with each bite. Sandy shores. Coconut-kissed breezes. I'm swept away.

Cookie Swoon. Each bubbly little crevice is stuffed with crunchy, buttery raw macadamia nut bits and velvety white chips. An aroma of cinnamon, vanilla and ginger lingers. This classic cookie (one of my all-time faves) is now a vegan dessert treat! One problem.. this recipe calls for a rare, mysterious, treasure chest item: vegan white chocolate chips!

But don't worry - even if you are chipless, you can still make these cookies and drift away to your own dessert island..


Shamrock Breakfast Sandwich. Kale. Pepitas. Jalapeno Sauce.

Still feeling the 'spring forward' groggies from daylight savings time, I woke up craving something that would rev me up for the day ahead. And since my husband LOVES my vegan breakfast sandwiches, I knew making this for him on an ordinary Wednesday would ease the route to rise and shine.

I turned on the stove and as soon as that sizzle from the pan kicked in and yummy smells started wafting, I knew I was in business. Ready to spring into action (maybe even before the sun peeks through the trees?) This vegan Shamrock Breakfast Sandwich should do the trick. Spicy, sweet, toasty, green and pepper aromas coming to a kitchen near you...

"Meat and Potatoes" Feast Gone Vegan. Salad Style.

Meat and Potatoes goes vegan in this feast of a post. This is a meal in a salad bowl. For even the manliest of men. And warning, I get a little silly as I explain this below.

And guess what, I'm now going to add nutritional info to all my new posts since so many of you ask for it! Hooray!..


Vegan Chocolate Mint Cookie Cheesecake. No-Bake!

This creamy cool vegan Mint Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake is my favorite treat for March. Leprechauns, mint, green recipes, shamrock fields and golden pots at the end of sparkly rainbows are all symbols of March. A season ripe with spring fever. Try my minty pie dessert and bring the leprechauns to you!..


Rice, Shiitake, Twirl of Carrots and Tofu: Spring is in the Air Salad.

A bed of fluffy micro arugula lays the groundwork for this "Spring is on my Plate" Salad. My play on the fact that yes, spring is in the air..

Spring Served. Spring reminds me of light, colorful salads, so that's what I wanted. Green, orange, yellow. Light, zesty, fluffy. Tender savory shiitake mushrooms mingle with a twirl of carrots and tofu on a bed of brown rice. A gentle accent of pepper, lemon and soy. Craft this beautiful salad in your own kitchen, it is quite an easy recipe...


Vegan "Clam" Chowder. Sourdough Bread Bowl.

I am so excited about this soup recipe - bread bowl clam chowder - without the clams! Or cream. This Vegan Clam Chowder is smoky, creamy and brimming with flavor. It is made from a cashew and soy base. A hint of smokiness and nutritional yeast too. Those tender bits of "clam" are actually king oyster mushrooms - diced - and sauteed with white onion, celery and a splash of truffle oil and liquid smoke.

All served in a crusty sourdough bread bowl. If you've ever had a thing for clam chowder - or chowda - you really have to try this recipe..


Cracked Farro Porridge with Berries and Walnuts.

Nutty and rustic, silky and creamy. Tender grains of cracked farro mingle with juicy sweet farmer's market strawberries, raw crunchy walnuts and a splash of velvety soy creamer. A sweet hint of maple syrup, cinnamon and sea salt. So simple. So obvious. Yet so extraordinary.

If you love a bowl of hot cereal in the morning - you must read this post and fall in love with farro! It is my favorite grain for hot cereal. Not just because of the complex, wholesome flavor - but for the nutrient properties as well. Get to know farro..
