No Oil Baked Fries

These perfectly crisp baked french fries are the perfect side for veggie burgers and carrot dogs. By boiling the potatoes for a few minutes before baking, you reduce some of the starch and provide enough moisture to yield crispy fries that are completely oil free.

Sweet potato adds extra flavor to this hummus. Chipotle and spices impart a smoky heat. The texture is creamy and light, perfect as a dip or a spread for vegetable wraps.

Asparagus Roll-Ups

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.

Nori Rolls

Nori rolls make a great light lunch on their own, but are sublime when served with salad greens and grilled shiitake mushrooms. A sushi mat makes rolling neat nori rolls much easier.

Avocado Rice Cakes

There will be no plain rice cakes or boring snacks on my watch. Crunchy rice cakes are topped with sliced avocado and a few generous spoonfuls of Spicy Tomato Jam. A light sprinkle of salt (optional) and pepper finishes off this simple yet immensely satisfying snack.

Crystal Rolls

These crystal rolls make an elegant and incredibly tasty hors d’oeuvre to enjoy with wine or mixed drinks. It’s best to have all the ingredients ready before rolling them into rice paper wrappers so that they don’t dry out.
