This heirloom tomato tart is perfect for a quick dinner or party appetizer. It’s sweet, savory and colorful, but the real star of this dish is the tofu ricotta. This tofu ricotta comes together so quickly and is made with ingredients I always have on hand. It’s also nut-free and full of protein!
Summer weather has officially hit North Carolina! This means all the fruity desserts. This recipe is vegan-adapted from my mom’s and it’s still just as delicious. It’s tangy and sweet and perfect for a hot summer day!
There is something about a lazy movie night that always has me craving Chinese. We have been enjoying a lot of appetizers for dinner recently, but this has quickly become my favorite. I had not realized how long it had been since I was able to enjoy a crab rangoon! Growing up, they were a staple in our take-out order. However, since becoming a vegetarian so many years ago, I have not been able to munch on these savory treats.
While we’re isolating at home, I have been working to recreate some of our favorite restaurant dishes. Pad thai is one of my boyfriend’s go-to dishes. I asked him why he loves this dish and this is how he answered: “It’s delicious!” While that’s not really the answer I was looking for, it’s true! I like this dish because it’s a little sweet, salty, and spicy. Quite honestly, though, anything with peanut butter I’ll love.
Happy Easter! I hope everyone is staying safe indoors this holiday. While this is definitely not a typical Easter for my friends and family, I am happy that I was able to do some baking this morning. Carrot cakes on Easter have become a tradition in my house. They are sweet and earthy. I love to spice mine up with extra ginger and cinnamon to contrast with the rich buttercream frosting.
