Creamy Seaweed-Infused Mushroom Chowder (vegan, lectin-free, and gluten-free)

One of the follower requests we received this month was for soups & chowders made with seafood. While we’re definitely not going to post a recipe containing actual seafood, we do like the idea of a play on clam chowder with flavors of the sea, silky texture, creamy broth, and hearty fillings. Upon going out…

Vegan Shiitake Hot & Sour Soup (Plant Paradox-friendly, grain-free & sugar-free)

I didn’t take my first sip of hot & sour soup until 2016, after Kim & I returned from Australia and were craving Chinese food. I ordered what I was used to – General Tso’s Tofu – but Kim ordered Hot & Sour Soup. What in the world? Not getting a fried protein tossed in…

1-Pot Vegan Mac n Cheese (lectin-free & gluten-free)

Mmmmm, mac n cheese. The creme de la creme of a boy who grow up with southern comfort food. If you ordered barbecue and had to choose between potato salad, mac n cheese, and collard greens, I’m willing to bet that you’d swiftly decide on mac n cheese. Who can argue with tender pasta drenched…

Lectin-Free One-Pot Chipotle Chili (vegan, sugar-free, & Plant Paradox friendly)

As the weather shrinks colder, my desire for heart warming foods grows stronger. Soul comforting, robust stews and soups that make you wanna cuddle up on the couch beside someone you love. Okay, who am I kidding, I live in LA and the weather isn’t getting any colder. But that doesn’t mean I don’t crave…

Coconut Ginger Sweet Potato Mash

BEHOLD, THE PURPLE SWEET POTATO Purple sweet potatoes may sound fancy, but simply sweet potatoes that contain more of the antioxidant anthocyanin – the agent responsible for this tuber’s purple shine – than others. While food bloggers may appear to champion the fanciest of fare, we love our lazy meals. I’m talking ‘bout meals we always have ingredients on hand…

Pressure-Cooked Black Beans

If you follow a vegetarian/vegan diet, you probably know how to make black beans from scratch. And if you don’t, you should. There’s an entire populations that live off the stuff (it’s the breakfast staple in Guatemala) and if you ever run out of money or fancy vegan foods, then what are you gonna do?…
