09 Nov Beet Threeway Tartine

After an incredible Sunday Funday cocktail event with The Juicebox Truck last night where they whipped up the most insane smoky earthy Beetbox juice and El Silencio mezcal cocktail for my guests, I've had beets on the brain (and a whole hell of a lot of leftover beets and greens in the fridge). So I set out to craft a recipe inspired by the cocktail and using all parts of the beet, and this Beet Threeway Tartine was the happy resulting product. It may seem like a lot of work for a piece of toast, but it's totally worth the effort. Roast the beets and make the pickles ahead of time and store in the fridge and the recipe finishing time is cut to just 10 minutes. Now, go forth and get your beet on! [yumprint-recipe id='92']...

03 Aug Roasted Watermelon “Salmon” with Avocado Crema and Cucumber Radish Chop

Want to blow your dinner companions minds? Serve them up this magical feat of culinary trickery. These slabs of watermelon have been transformed in texture and flavor with just a little spin in the oven, and actually come out looking so much like a piece of salmon that people have to do a double take when you tell them it's fruit. Topped with crunchy spicy chopped veg and a bright avocado crema, you'll have a light and gorgeous starter course that is a perfect summer alternative to the traditional watermelon salad.

02 Mar Purple Kale Salad with Creamy Cashew Avocado Dressing

I can never get enough kale salad, so I'm always inventing new ways to mix up the same old bowl. This recipe was inspired by my new favorite Venice Beach neighborhood watering hole, Clutch, where their Cali-Mex kale and cauliflower salad transported my tastebuds to a very happy place last week. Now when I don't want to walk the three blocks to get it, I can make my own twist at home (but I would still walk a hundred miles for those Mexi nacho fries with avocado crema!). You can make this one vegan by omitting the cojita, but you'll need to up the salt to make up for the loss. [yumprint-recipe id='67']...

06 Oct Veggie Ceviche Stuffed Avocado (Vegan)

Hearts of Palm replace the standard fishy ceviche base in this tangy, spicy, and flavor packed recipe developed for Vegenaise. The key to getting this right is workin your knife skills and making every vegetable component the same size- I like mine super finely diced, but for a more rustic preparation you can pump up the size and go chunky. Serve in pretty glasses or in an emptied out avocado as shown and with plenty of your favorite tortilla chips on the side!

13 Mar Jackfruit Posole Stew

Inspired by a traditional meaty Mexican Posole stew, this healthier vegan version develops a ton of flavor in a quick cook time. The hominy has an addicting flavor and texture, the canned beans cut the cooking and prep time, the mock chicken broth and chipotles brings the spice and flavor that the meat usually provides in the traditional version, the jackfruit looks and has the texture of  meat, and the toppings create an awesome crunch creating a somewhat salad soup hybrid. One of my favorite comfort foods, this stew is an easy and hearty one pot meal to warm your heart and soul. [yumprint-recipe id='74']...
