Collard Ribbons

This recipe is more about cutting technique than ingredients. Our family never ate many collards until I learned this ribbon style of cutting, which eliminates their tough texture. If you usually just chop them, you’ll see that this style of cutting makes a huge difference.

Sweet Peanut Burgers

This quick, easy recipe is loaded with sweet and spicy Thai flavors. The combination of sweet potatoes and peanut butter gives these burgers a beautiful texture and taste.

Baked Salt & Vinegar Fries

Traditional French fries are my biggest “high fat” weakness, so I am motivated to cut and bake my own fries that are both healthy and satisfying. This recipe has all the crunchiness of traditional French fries without all the fat.

Spicy Tahini Stir Fry

This powerhouse stir-fry is packed with vegetables and soba noodles, but it’s the sauce that makes it extra special. Sriracha provides the heat in this dish; feel free to scale it up or down to your preference.

Hoisin Sauce

Hoisin is an Asian barbecue sauce that is used to flavor and season many Asian dishes. I like to make my own since it’s cheaper and the ingredients are simple to find. This condiment is very salty and sweet, so a little can really go far; most recipes call for only a small amount of hoisin sauce to enhance the dish.

Asparagus Roll-ups

I love bean dips and asparagus and wanted a healthy alternative to similar recipes that use cream cheese for filling. The result was this easy and beautiful appetizer.

Carrot Dogs

When I first saw carrot dog recipes all over the web, done in a variety of ways, I thought it sounded very strange. But I’m an adventurist when it comes to plant-based foods, so I had to give it a try. Surprisingly, they’re so good that even my omnivore friends love them! I am not sure where this idea originated, but many thanks to the creator.

Breaded Onion Rings

This recipe was inspired by the canned onion strings on top of a traditional green bean casserole. The canned onions are greasy, salty, and highly processed, and I knew there had to be a delicious alternative. These onion rings are it! In fact, the first time I threw them together, my family ate them all before they even made it to the top of the casserole. I was so excited about the idea of onion rings for casseroles, snacks, and side dishes that I decided to include this recipe in the cookbook.
