If you’ve ever eaten lox (also known as smoked salmon), you’ll know that it has a very distinctive flavor and texture. It seemed impossible that one might mimic the feel and taste of smoked salmon with a crunchy, sweet root veggie. Until we gave this recipe a try.
Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to whip up a delicious breakfast that the whole family can come together and enjoy, regardless of their individual dietary preferences. Check out our beginner-safe, completely vegan (but everyone will love it), perfect for Mother’s Day brunch recipe: Coconut Chia Breakfast Bowls.
We love hummus, really, we do. But face it—sometimes it's the only thing us vegheads can eat at parties. And that gets a little boring. This Superbowl Sunday, we want you to do a little better. Our new smoky butternut hummus is a little sweet, a little savory, and a lot yum—and something that everyone at your party will love.
Holiday season is in full swing, and all us vegetarians want for Christmas (and Chanukah and Kwanzaa and New Year's and Festivus) is a guarantee that there will be something satisfying for us to eat at the many parties we're getting ready to attend. Sure, we love chips and guacamole, but there's got to be something more...like our crispy roasted chickpeas.
Sesame seeds are packed with protein, iron, and calcium—nutrients all vegetarians, especially teenage ones, need to look out for. But how many meals can you sprinkle the little guys on? We combined a few simple ingredients to turn sesame superseeds into an easy peasy chocolate-y topping that would taste great on toast, as a dip for carrot sticks, or mixed into plain oatmeal.
It always feels like a bit of a cruel joke that my birthday falls out around (and sometimes on) Thanksgiving. I mean, is there any holiday that is more meat-centric? But rather than feel sorry for myself, I get cooking. Thanksgiving dinner may not be MY meal, but these pumpkin bread pancakes—a delicious, vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free way celebrate fall—totally are. I'd rather celebrate all month long than at one meal, anyway!
It's March, which means it's Shamrock Shake season at McDonald's restaurants across the United States (Canada and Ireland too, we're told). Each year, the seasonal St. Patrick’s Day offering—a bright green minty whipped cream- topped shake—seems to develop more and more of a cult following. If you're not headed to the golden arches to get one this month, surely you know someone who is.
Have you heard about chia? These little seeds—the same ones used to grow the grass-like "hair" in those infamous Chia Pets—are all the rage in the food world. Not only are they fun to cook with, but they're also a good source of the plant-based form of omega-3 fatty acids, the nutrient found in fish that is good for your heart, brain, skin and more.
