Things I Made This Week

One of my clients is in love with Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook, Cravings: Hungry for More. This week I made then two dinners from her book plus a hearty zucchini lasagna, beef and barley soup, massive veggie salad, and protein energy balls!

Vegan Jackfruit Frybread Tacos

This jackfruit taco filling is vegan, paleo, and gluten free! It’s amazing on the included fry bread recipe, but can also be served with corn tortillas for gluten free guests and bibb lettuce for paleo eaters.

Sparks Vegan, Gluten-Free Nopales Tacos

Don’t let the purists tell you that all tacos have to be made from fresh produce bought that day – or that all vegan food has to break the bank. Our whole vegan taco night for four cost less than $10. Nopales (cactus paddles) are a cheap, healthy vegan filling that isn’t made out of whatever weird lab process goes into Impossible Burgers. Give it a try on your next Taco Tuesday!

Montreal Vegan, Gluten Free Brunch Recipes – Starring Preserved Lemon!

In addition to the sauteed fiddlehead ferns and the fiddlehead fern omelet, I raided my hosts pantry to complete our vegetarian brunch with roasted red carrots, a preserved lemon and maple syrup salad dressing, and basil lemonade made from the herbs in my host’s window. Try these maple syrup sweetened carrots with preserved lemon, preserved lemon salad dressing, and maple-basil lemonade.
