Fig Pistachio Bars

Vegan Fig Pistachio Bar
More figs today. Basically I had a brief moment of fig abundance and I’ve used them everywhere. I don’t regret it though, I would totally do it again.

I don’t pretend to follow a seasonal diet really or even to know what’s in season quite when. We have been isolated from that for a long time due to the general availability of everything, all the time. But I know that I especially crave fruits in the summer when, in my opinion, most of them are at their best. So I gravitate towards them and they end up in pretty much every meal and/or snack.

Eggplant Quinoa Burger

Eggplant Quinoa and Black Bean Burger

A good way to infuse your vegan burgers with a smoky flavor is to use barbecued veggies, especially eggplants. I don't barbecue too often, especially when it is hot outside like most days in the California summer. But when I do barbecue, I like my beautifully grilled and slightly charred veggies to ...
