Artichoke hummus is absolutely one of my favorite variations on this super versatile and nutritious spread. I am a big fan of artichokes themselves and I was curious to see if any of that flavor would carry into a hummus. It took me by surprise just how amazing it turned out to be! The artichoke flavor is definitely there but not overwhelming, perfectly complementing the rich, earthy, slightly sour and wholly satisfying taste profile. The recipe is below.
This incredibly easy home made vegan protein bar is powered by five different superfood seeds, packing a serious amount protein as well as fiber, good fats and carbs. In a plant protein world largely dominated by soy, other beans, peas, gluten and nuts, the nutritional powerhouse seeds are often overlooked. But they are potent, and they are a nice alternative for those who wish to avoid or lessen soy, gluten or nut consumption.
This recipe is quite minimal, the only cooking involved is the toasting of the oats and the seeds but the bars themselves are not baked afterwards. The sweetening comes largely from dates and there is no added refined oil! And the result is a delightfully fresh and chewy consistency with an almost addictive texture due to all the variety of seeds.
I almost always have some of these available in the fridge or freezer and they are a life saver and an absolute treat. The recipe is below:
Sometimes I get to cheat and use a pre-made dough to go from zero to insanely delicious pastry in about 30 minutes 🙂 I have always been fond of the idea of baking tahini into desserts. I made these for my dear friend Angela (www.rawmamanature.com). Not only she waited for the photo shoot, but she modeled for it too <3 Checkout her amazing artwork here: www.angelazanolari.com
Oh and the recipe for the pastry roll is below:
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.
