Yuca Arepas with Hogao (Tomato and Onion) Sauce

Arepa is a patty made traditionally in Colombian and Venezuelan cuisine with precooked corn flour that can be baked, grilled, or fried. These arepas are made with yuca root, also known as cassava. The outside is crispy and golden, while the middle stays slightly moist and soft. Hogao, a very important component of Colombian cuisine, is a savory sauce made with onions, tomatoes, garlic, and other spices that are sauteed until soft and fragrant.

Easy Eggless Potato Salad

My grandmother always made the best potato salad-- creamy, flavorful, and satisfying. It was the perfect side dish for barbeques and holiday meals. When she went plant-based, it was a snap to fit this same potato salad into her diet just by substituting a plant-based mayonnaise for the egg mayonnaise she used to use. Now it’s even better than I remember!
