Simple and Delicious: Cooked Edamame

Sometimes it’s the little things. We typically order these as an appetizer when we eat out at Asian restaurants and figured it was high-time we started eating them at home, too. It’s so easy and they make a great side dish or starter. You can also change up the seasoning and you have a whole…

Chopped Greek Salad with Tofu Feta -- Epicurean Vegan

Chopped Greek Salad with Tofu Feta

I wish I could say I eat healthy all year round, but there are definitely times (especially during the holidays) when I don’t eat as many fruits and veggies like I should. So what better time than the new year to recommit to fresh, non-packaged meals? This Greek salad is the epitome of fresh. The…

Tofu-Veggie Noodle Bowls with Peanut Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Tofu-Veggie Noodle Bowls with Peanut Sauce

Even in the wintertime, a fresh and tasty noodle bowl can really hit the spot. I sure love my soups when the weather gets chilly, but these bowls with lightly sauteed tofu, fresh greens and steamed veggies, also fit the bill quite nicely. They’re also pretty simple to throw together, so you won’t be slaving…

Stuffed Dates -- Epicurean Vegan

Stuffed Dates

Happy holidays! The last couple of days have consisted of family and friend get-togethers, which means lots of great food. Christmas Eve was an appetizer night, so I brought the amazing Fiesta Taco Potato Crisps from The Oh She Glows Cookbook, and my spinach dip. For Christmas breakfast, we feasted on our favorite Hash Brown…

Joseph is the front man for the punk band, Cro-Mags, has been plant-based eating for 34 years, and is an Ironman triathlete. The cover may not be sporting the typical colorful photograph of the author preparing a veggie-packed…

Creamy Mushroom Soup -- Epicurean Vegan

Creamy Mushroom Soup

I love soup season. Although, I tend to make soups year round. This one is particularly fitting for winter because mushrooms pack an immune-boosting punch. Those winter sniffles and coughs don’t stand a chance against this cold-fighting stew. I added a potato, which is certainly optional; I just thought it added a bit more heartiness….

Cinnamon-Almond Croissants -- Epicurean Vegan

Cinnamon-Almond Croissants

Puff pastry can sometimes be a vegan’s best friend. I had one sheet of it in the freezer, so I stuck it in the fridge the night before so that it would be thawed by morning. Otherwise, it takes about 45-60 minutes if you take it out and set it on the counter to thaw….

Groatmeal with Fresh Fruit -- Epicurean Vegan

Groatmeal with Fresh Fruit

When it comes to breakfast, it can be a little lack luster for me. The Tenth Grader and I try to hit the gym in the mornings before school, so I typically inhale a Larabar at 5:45 a.m. and when I come home, I’m just wanting something quick. Sadly, I usually end up with a Boca…

Creamy Avocado Pasta -- Epicurean Vegan

Creamy Avocado Pasta

Avocados are incredibly versatile. They work in desserts such as mousses and cupcakes, in salads, dips, and spreads. Heck, you can make a facial out of it! Well, they also make the ideal pasta sauce. They’re very healthy too. Did you know they have more potassium than bananas? Yep, that’s 14% compared 10% in bananas….
