Old-Fashioned Fig Roll Cookies

Fig Newtons are a classic cookie from the past, but these reinterpreted gems are much healthier and tastier than anything store-bought. In these bars, delicious gluten-free cookie dough is layered with a thick, rich, jammy fig puree, a perfect pairing. Figs are honey-sweet and have a unique, slightly berry-like flavor that makes these cookies almost magical. They’re great as a breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Hand-Twisted Soft Pretzels

Soft pretzels are fun to create—and irresistible to eat. The baking soda bath and toppings give these pretzels their traditional flavor, making them a hit in our house. They’re soft and chewy on the inside and golden brown on the outside. Kids and adults love to roll the dough and form their own pretzels or unique shapes. Top them with anything you love for a great snack or appetizer.

Spicy Chickpea Burgers

You can make burgers from almost any bean, but I always have chickpeas and black beans on hand. This burger is a great alternative to the usual black bean burger found on the menu of almost every restaurant I visit. It is full of flavor and easy to prepare.

Oil-Free Air Fryer Onion Rings

When I first became vegetarian I used to order a large burger from a famous fast food restaurant, but I’d ask for no meat and an order of onion rings, which I would place on the burger in place of the meat. I still make a similar sandwich, but now with healthier ingredients.

Chickpeas and Vegetables with Mediterranean Spices

Cinnamon, coriander, and saffron are classic flavors in parts of the Mediterranean. And while a lot of stews can take hours to prepare, this one takes less than 30 minutes and doesn’t sacrifice any of that great flavor. Serve over couscous, brown rice, or whatever grain you have on hand.

Quinoa-Stuffed Roasted Tomatoes

This is one of those end-of-summer dishes that you can serve to awe your guests, but it’s just as great when you’re eating alone. Sometimes I make the filling by itself and eat it in tortillas.

Best Ever Mushroom Gravy

I confess, the main reason I make mashed potatoes is so they can serve as a vessel for good gravy. I’ve made some version of this potato topper for many years around the holidays, and this is my latest update. I eliminated the flour as a thickener and used puréed cauliflower to add that desired creaminess.

Autumn Harvest Plant-Based Shepherd’s Pie

Classic shepherd's pie is made with some sort of meat base topped with mashed potatoes and baked golden brown. It’s as attractive as it is tasty, making it the perfect holiday meal. This version uses the best produce of the season, for an alternative that is tasty, filling, and very healthy.

Rosemary Flatbread

There are so many different kinds of flatbread from cultures around the world. But this is my favorite version of all. It uses the gluten-free grain amaranth, which is rich in protein and micronutrients and also associated with many health benefits. If this is your first time using amaranth, I think you're about to become obsessed.
