Easy 5-Ingredient Baba Ganoush

I first made this recipe for a Mediterranean potluck my roommates and I threw.  For this adaptation of the recipe I added way more garlic because we looove garlic over here.  So good with pita or veggies, on a falafel, or just by itself. Easy 5-Ingredient Baba Ganoush Prep Time: 45 minutes Cook Time: 5 […]

Healing Miso Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

This is definitely our weeknight ‘go-to’ meal when we want something simple, quick, and super yummy! We always have the ingredients on hand, and this one-pot soup cooks up in about 15 minutes. One of the great things about miso soup is that you can pretty much throw in any veggies you have in the […]

Family Recipe: Shrimp De Jange

And here is another one from the Family Recipe vault: Shrimp de Jange.  I looked up the origins of this dish, and apparently this was created and popularized in Chicago in the 60s- so this fits the timeline perfectly. This was one of the most popular recipes from my grandparent’s restaurant/Supper Club. My dad made […]

Family Recipe: Creamy Garlic Dressing

  Another amazing salad dressing recipe from my grandparent’s Supper Club/restaurant in Chicago!  While it is a bit heavier than Aunt’s Ruth’s Amaaaaazing Salad Dressing, it has the ability to transform any salad into something you literally cannot stop eating.  While the original dressing is below, I will probably add a lot more fresh garlic […]

Family Recipe: Aunt Ruth’s Salad Dressing

Probably my favorite of our Family Recipes! My grandparents used to own a restaurant/‘Supper Club’ outside of Chicago during the 60s and 70s- and this recipe always gets passed around in our family cookbooks.  This dressing gets made for every holiday, special occasion, or for when we want to class up a salad.  It is […]

3 Bean Salad with Honey Vinaigrette Dressing (Vegan, GF)

This 3 Bean Salad with Honey Vinaigrette is my absolute favorite hands-down bean salad!  I have actually been known to eat this for breakfast it is that good.  And then eat it again for lunch… and then again for dinner, ha. Not even going to lie, this bean salad is where it’s at. This 3 Bean […]

Soba Noodle Salad with Lime Tamari Dressing

I love when I go out to eat somewhere and have something so yummy I think I need to make this myself! This was one of those cases.  I ordered this on a whim from the vegan bakery Wildflour, and started brainstorming immediately on how to translate it to a homemade version I can have […]

Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

This is my absolute favorite recipe!  Since the first time I made this cabbage, I knew this recipe was a keeper.  I believe there was even a time we made it 3 times in one week!  Its sweet and tangy, warm and comforting, and not to mention so full of antioxidants from almost every ingredient. […]

Vegan Lentil Bolognese Pasta Sauce

This recipe was one of those ‘make it up as I go along’ dinners 🙂 I originally was planning to have some zucchini and lentils, and it turned into the great creation below.  I chose the name ‘bolognese’ because the lentils make this super filling and the texture is almost ‘meaty’ as the lentils break […]

Tabbouleh Tabbouli Tabouli, Oh My! Salad

I could probably (…OK definitely) eat tabbouli every single day.  This is the perfect salad for anytime of the year, for lunch or for dinner, served warm or chilled.  This recipe is super easy to prepare and makes a ton of tabbouli so there are always leftovers which get better the longer they sits in […]
