ZUCCHINI POBLANO SOUP | recipe

There's something about green food that screams vitality. I think we have this feeling toward greens at a biological level because eating things that are green is the equivalent to edible sunshine and what could be more vital than eating something created by a source of life -- the sun.

WHITE BEAN SOUP with coconut bacon and chives | recipe

Preparing for winter in New England is a bit like preparing for a mental health crisis -- you know it will be worse than you can let yourself remember, you know you will need some no-brainer self care tools in place and you know that it will pass but in the midst of it that won't matter. My analogy here is fitting for me personally because the first usually brings about the latter, which I know to be true for many of us cold weather dwellers. It's not a matter of if, but when the cold will hit and when it does I generally don't want to venture out from under the blanket I will be living in for three to four months. That's why this year I'm stocking up on healing, cozy and warm recipes that take minimal effort. It may be sunny September now, but I'm preparing for the storm. Winter is coming, people. Are you ready?

CRUSTLESS TOFU MINI QUICHES | recipe

I get such inexplicable joy out of making something new out of something I've already made. It's the half-ass creative in me. In this case, it was the happy accident (leftover Monday) of combining my tofu scramble recipe with my vegan egg (v'egg) patty recipe to make these almost too easy mini quiches. These little guys are awesome for meal prepping a grab'n'go breakfast for your school or work week. I also love that they can serve as a fridge clear out recipe because you can through in whatever you need to use up as the filling. I've tried tempeh bacon and chives, asparagus and leeks, mushroom and spinach and these tex-med inspired ones that I've shown here.

ROSEWATER AND RASPBERRY CHEESECAKES with a graham cracker crust | recipe

When I'm craving something sweet, the satiation process begins with the making; a combination of time, patience and minimal effort, and ends with the presentation. Somehow I feel more deserving of indulgence when I've waited in agony for it. Am I alone in this? This recipe takes little to no kitchen skills, but a whole lotta patience, as like most raw desserts, it requires time in the freezer. But half the pleasure in these cute little treats is had just by looking at them. I love pretty sweet things, and I am so not a baker, so here I got my fix with some ombré and topping the hell out these babies, unnecessary to taste, but I eat with my eyes.

TOFU SCRAMBLE | recipe

Breakfast staple right here. I've always been a huge breakfast person, and so when I went vegan I was bereft at the prospect of no more eggs and bacon. As I've grown into my veganism the reality of a fried up chicken period and the loins of a sweet little pig absolutely horrify me, but it took a while for the idea of a traditional diner breakfast to turn from enticing to rather revolting. Ok, enough carnivorous food bashing, sorry friends. Because, this story is about a breakfast lover learning to love breakfast in a new and exciting way.
