I'm so, so sorry for the wacky posting schedule this week and for missing Wednesday's post.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Pancakes (vegan, gluten-free)

Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Pancakes (vegan, gluten-free)

Once in a while, something comes into our lives that makes it all a bit sweeter. Sometimes it's a person, other times an opportunity, and on rare occasion it's a ridiculously tasty stack of pancakes. If you've been following along for a while, you might have noticed that there's a serious shortage of pancake recipes on this blog. I outlined the reason for that in this post when I created a giant blueberry skillet pancake to avoid the pour, flip, wait, flip, repeat, repeat, repeat... REPEAT … [Read more...]

No-Fuss Garlicky Farro with Sautéed Mushrooms

No-Fuss Garlicky Farro with Sautéed Mushrooms (vegan)

Garlicky: a word that wrangles my attention every time. Especially when it's in the vicinity of another attention-grabber: mushrooms. There's a special kind of comfort that stems from the pairing of garlic and mushrooms. A humble, reliant, and warming comfort that's most certainly the antidote to a stiff winter chill. This farro is fuss-free with minimal chopping, cookware, and ingredients required, and it's the kind of meal I love at the end of a busy day. To make it, you'll cook … [Read more...]

Fresh & Frothy Pineapple-Cilantro Smoothie

Fresh + Frothy Pineapple-Cilantro Smoothie

Fresh, frothy, and a tad bit tropical. This smoothie is a simple and refreshing blend of frozen bananas, fresh pineapple, kale, cilantro, coconut milk, and a bit of ice (to up the froth-factor). Its flavors lean toward summer, and I love anything with sunshiny notes during this chilly, dark time of year. Like a ray of green sunshine, it'll quell the darkest shades of winter blue. Plus, it offers an abundance of vitamin c, manganese, vitamin k, vitamin a, B6, and potassium thanks to the … [Read more...]

Vegan Chorizo Breakfast Tacos | Made with Cauliflower

Vegan Chorizo Breakfast Tacos | by Blissful Basil

Spicy. Savory. Warm. Filling. Tender. Vegan. Chorizo that's made from cauliflower and sundried tomatoes... for real. Originally, I had planned to make lentil chorizo breakfast tacos, but the idea of swapping lentils for cauliflower popped into my head while I was driving home from work one day. I figured it was a long shot and would likely result in huge flop that I would have to re-work over and over again until I eventually threw in the towel, but it was worth a try. By some sort … [Read more...]

5-Ingredient Perfect Guacamole

5-Ingredient Perfect Guacamole

A few fun facts about my love affair with avocados: 1| On average, I eat 3-4 avocados a week. 2| I love mashing 1 avocado with the juice of 1 lime and a sprinkling of sea salt and adding heaping dollops of that goodness into power bowls. Try it but don't blame me when you have a fierce, unshakable addiction. 3| I often incorporate avocados into breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes they even get whipped into dessert. 4| I also use avocados in my skincare routine. Avocado + ACV … [Read more...]

Lean Green Avocado-Spinach Pesto Pasta with Sautéed Mushrooms (vegan, gf)

Lean Green Avocado-Spinach Pesto Pasta (vegan, gluten-free)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We spent ours working and getting things done around the house. Said housework included installing a new kitchen faucet because our old one fell apart while I was recipe-testing on Saturday. Apparently my Popeye-like strength -- must be all the avocado-spinach pesto I've been eating -- was too much for our faucet to withstand, because I went to turn off the water and the handle broke right off into the sink. Dan and I pretended to be mildly dismayed as … [Read more...]

BBQ Lentil Lettuce Wraps with Tangy Slaw (vegan, gf)

BBQ Lentil Lettuce Wraps with Tangy Slaw (vegan, gluten-free)

Remember that post way back on Wednesday? The one in which I mentioned a knee-buckler of a recipe that would put this BBQ sauce to good use? Well, wait no more (I know you were on the edge of your computer chair), because here it is... This dish is easy to make, satisfying, bursting with flavor, and packs a protein kick thanks to a wild amount of lentils. It's a meal that lures you back in bite after bite, yet it will leave you feeling energized rather than groggy. I've been enjoying … [Read more...]
