This fabulous vegan recipe was shared by French vegan Top Chef, Pascale Stretti! It’s an easy vegan recipe for risotto without the chicken broth. Chef’s note: You may not end up using all of the broth, just make sure to keep adding liquid throughout the cooking process as each ladle-full evaporates. Don’t cook the rice [...]

Robin Robertson has worked with food for more [...]
I absolutely love this dosa recipe! It’s a delicious savory gluten-free crepe. If you live in a cold climate, you may find this dosa batter easier to work with than the dosa batter made from urad dal, as the pesarattu dosa batter doesn’t need to be fermented. Once you soak the moong dal (mung beans) [...]

This chanterelle mushroom recipe was created after a trip to the Farmers’ Market. All the veggies looked sooooo yummy that I wanted to make use of them! The sweetness of the sungold tomatoes combined with the smoky/ woody flavor of the chanterelle mushrooms was absolutely divine! I can’t wait to make this chanterelle mushroom recipe again. (Note: you can use quinoa or rice pasta to make this dish gluten-free).
This is an easy vegan meal for two. Recipe may be doubled or tripled.
