Toasted Coconut Almond Butter

It’s the love child of coconut butter and almond butter. But this isn’t a clandestine, illegitimate situation where you shun the kid from the family and deny him his right to the throne. Nope. This is the kinda offspring you proudly ascend on a golden pedestal, and then eat by the spoonful. Wait. Did I […]

Breadless Tempeh Veggie Sandwich

I’d like to introduce you to a new culinary trend: tempeh bread. I feel like a genius. A trailblazer. A maverick, if you will. ‘Cause while there are plenty of recipes that feature tempeh in sandwiches, I’ve yet to find one that uses tempeh to encase sandwich toppings. (Trust me, I googled.) This one is […]

Chocolate-Covered Medjool Date Bars

This is a sponsored post by Natural Delights Medjool Dates, which means I was compensated for my time to develop this recipe. I vet products carefully to ensure they align with my nutritional values, and only feature brands I genuinely use and enjoy. As always, any opinions expressed here are my own. I’ll be straight […]

No-Bake Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

These granola bars are a lovely combo of healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, plant-based protein and anti-inflammatory nutrients. They’re perfect for a mid-morning snack, post-workout replenishment or afternoon pick-me-up. Or if you’re simply craving a hit of tasty coconutty-chocolatey-sunbuttery sweetness. A little goes a long way here, since these are very nutrient-dense. I cut my slab […]

Spicy Baked Sunbutter Tofu with Broccoli

Some of you might not consider 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to be spicy. For a wimp like me, this entrée was a little inferno. Laugh all you want. Cayenne can be a controversial topic in the nutrition world. On the one hand, it’s a nightshade vegetable, which can instigate inflammation. But, on the other, […]

Sunbutter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

To illustrate the wonder and delight of these cookies, I’ll recount the exchange I had with my husband after I baked them. Husband: (with his mouthful of cookie) These are really good. Me: Do they taste like peanut butter and jelly? Husband: (looking concerned) Yes. Why? Aren’t these peanut butter and jelly? Me: Yes, there’s […]

West African Peanut-Free Soup

It’s been a looong time since I posted a soup recipe. And it’s bizarre. ‘Cause I eat soup almost every day. Generally, I cobble together a mishmash of whatever is in my fridge along with the spices that strike my fancy. The results are always delicious, but aren’t noteworthy enough to warrant a blog post. […]

Roasted Sunflower Seed Butter

You guys, there is something I am so obsessed with I decided to devote an entire week of recipes to it on this website. The magical ingredient? Roasted sunflower seed butter, or sunbutter. Sunbutter isn’t a new or fancy trend. In fact, I’m a little late to the sunbutter game, but now I’m its biggest […]

Creamy Carrot Dip

It tastes like hummus. It has the consistency of hummus. It even kind a looks like hummus, save for the orange hue. But it’s completely bean-less. This recipe is for those of you who love the flavour of hummus, but don’t dig the toots that often accompany eating beans (though to make ‘em more digestible, […]
