Japanese Cuisine Knowledge Bombs + Fast & Hot Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry (vegan)

While visiting Japan, Kim and I not only learned what classifies authentic Japanese food, we also learned what Japanese food isn’t. At this point, most people know that you’re not going to go to China and eat “the best orange chicken you’ve ever had,” because it’s clear that chow mien, pork fried rice, and all…

Bright Morning Toast with Oregano-Truffle Cream Cheese and Olive Oil Tossed Tomatoes (vegan)

This is 100% one of our easiest recipes ever. And no, that doesn’t make it any less delicious. This dish is reminiscent of breakfast in Barcelona, where perfectly toasted bread is topped with olive oil and whatever else that particular restaurant is feeling that day. It’s pure simplicity, but it packs a variety of flavors…

Complex & Chewy Red Miso Blondies (vegan)

I’ve had an extremely challenging time trying to perfect a blondie recipe. In fact, I’ve been at it for over a year now, and although we’ve released one recipe that was gluten-free and lectin-free, none of them quite nailed what I desired. That was until I hit the web to do more digging once again.…

Easy One Pan Tofu Scramble

Normally, we like to be extravagant. If we don’t go out of our way to make each recipe “wow” you in a different way than the last one did, we feel like we did something wrong. Albeit, that does lend our website a more complex and adventurous vibe, which is great, because we wanna challenge…

I know we started off the last post with a story, but look, we’ve got another one for you. This one has its origins in Miami, taking place around late February, 2019 (for you future readers out there) when Kim and I were in Florida for a short tour with our good friend Dré Tamashi.…

Smoky Mayo Pasta Salad with Crisp Vegetables (vegan)

Usually, when we look back at old recipes, we shudder in shame at our novice skills. However, there’s one recipe we frequently return to: Smoky Pasta Salad. It’s just got that special quality that separates it from anything else we’ve tasted, not to mention that it’s simple, quick, and frickin’ PASTA. In the original recipe, we…

Good Ol’ Southern Raspberry Sweet Tea (sweetened with Swerve!)

Did you guys have a go-to diner spot growing up? You know, the one that was a little sketchy, had the cheapest food with the largest servings, was open 24/7, and had really nice, older waitresses who probably smoked a lot in their youth and went to church every Sunday? I know we did, and…

Sweet & Tangy Southern Coleslaw (Vegan & Plant Paradox-friendly)

Ahh, BBQ month is coming into full swing. And what would any tri-sectioned, styrofoam plate be without a side of coleslaw? I know barbecue is supposedly “all about the meat,” but I think that pulled pork or brisket would be nothin’ without its trusty sidekicks. Barbecue culture is near and dear to my heart because…
