Coconut macaroons are one of my favorite cookies. Who knew you could just skip the eggs and make a deliciously healthy version with only 5 ingredients and next to no effort! A no compromise vegan, gluten-free cookie, I am hooked. Here is the recipe:
Miso has a way of completely surrounding you with a deep, pungent umami flavor and I can’t have enough of it. And it turns out, miso pairs so well with the mild, creamy, nutty flavor of the cauliflower. I keep making this recipe as a crowd-pleaser warm-serve dip, or as a nutritious pasta sauce, or as a topping for open-faced sandwiches. Give it a go and I am sure you will find many more ways to enjoy this easy and versatile dish. The recipe is below.
Dates and peanut butter, made into sticky taste bombs that are later rolled in cocoa powder. Super simple to make, no baking. And the best part; it’s all vegan and healthy for a quick energy burst before/during/after your workouts. It is also a really good companion to a good cup of coffee (or tea, if you will). Here is the recipe:
We love having friends over for dinner and last Saturday we had another one of those awesome get togethers. I don’t, however, always want to spend a whole day in the kitchen for prep so I took care of a few of the things on Friday. I made few of these spreads and a cheese. I also grilled eggplants and peppers to make a grilled vegetable salad. In the morning of the Saturday, I made the popular m, and the vegetable paella. All was taken care of before mid-day so we had a chance to spend a lazy, outdoors time. A hot day with a cool breeze and sitting on grass under the canopy of redwood trees, we had ample time to rest and be lost in nature a little. The last thing I made before our guests arrived was simple: Homemade garam masala roasted chickpeas, made in an iron cast skillet.
A delicious, delicious popsicle that is mostly tofu! Perfect way to cool down and get a good kick of protein with a little carb after a workout.
My son eats a couple of these everyday and that makes me happy. For one thing, he loves the taste and that is always a good indicator. And he gets his protein this way after his intense gymnastics sessions, all the while helping him cool down.
Exercise or not, give it a try. It is very easy to prepare and I know you will like it. Here is the recipe:
Another beautiful weekend is upon us and I am already thinking about the dips that has become the tradition in our family. I am tackling a classic this time, with a few twists.
