I have made more than my share of dessert recipes using strawberries, but I also like including them in salads where they can provide a fresh contrast to other ingredients. This dish is one I made recently when I happened upon a really good pint of berries in the store.
The secret to making a really good marinade is finding the right balance between sweet, savory, and acidic elements. In this dish, the brightness of the orange and the ginger work really well together, and adding the slightest bit of sweetener brings out their flavors even more.
Ceviche is a raw fish dish traditionally prepared in countries like Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, and Chile. This plant-based ceviche is an easy and refreshing recipe that is great during warmer months. Even with very few ingredients, its flavor is exquisite!
Mangú is a traditional Dominican dish that is served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is made up of boiled and mashed green plantains and topped with red onions sautéed with a bit of vinegar. It’s fast and easy to prepare, but also very hearty!
This is a relatively easy dish to prepare, but with attention to detail, you can make it look like a work of sculpted art. And it’s not just something pretty to look at. Quinoa is the perfect light-but-fluffy grain to go with this creamy mushroom sauce.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is a classic dessert commonly made to celebrate special occasions. This plant-based version uses cooked-down pineapple juice to create the perfect buttery smell and flavor without actually using butter. This cake will fill your kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma!
Tiramisu is a decadent dessert traditionally reserved for upscale Italian restaurants. The light sponge is soaked in coffee, layered with a thick cream filling, and topped with a generous dusting of cocoa powder. Whole food, plant-based living doesn’t get much better than this!
That little bit of allspice gives this dish just the right amount of earthy sweetness, reminiscent of cinnamon or cloves. It’s subtle, but it does a great job of accentuating the other flavors in the beans and provides a fantastic contrast to the sriracha-spiced salsa.
