Cuban Black Beans

If you have an instant pot or pressure cooker you have the fastest solution to keeping cooked beans around. Being vegan we eat a lot of beans. The down fall is they take so long to cook on the stove top. When I’m in a hurry to make something I don’t want to be waiting an hour for my beans to cook.

Mango Spring Rolls

Spring rolls can seem like a daunting task to make, but with a little patience and a sense of adventure you can become a pro. The trick with spring rolls is the rice paper roll.

It’s always wonderful to have a recipe that’s not only easy to make, but healthy and fresh all at the same time.

Vegan Cilantro-Lime Ranch

This recipe has a little bit of ranch flavor, a little bit of heat, and the vibrancy of cilantro-lime flavors that marry the two. If you like ranch on everything, this will be your new go to dressing.

At the combination of fresh ingredients and pungent herbs paired with the salty kalamata olives are what make this salad come together to delightfully when paired with my Greek Dressing recipe. If you’re craving Greek flavors this plant based salad will deliver.

Arugula Tangerine Salad

There’s something about the peppery last of arugula, the sweet taste of tangerines and the creamy tahini dressing that goes so well together. Even the pickiest eaters tend to like this recipe.
