Breakfast Quesadilla

There are two foods I can never get enough of: coffee and Mexican food. So, it was only natural that I would eventually come up with a Mexican dish I could justify eating with my morning latte.

Peaches ‘n’ Cream Towers

I bought four peaches at the grocery store yesterday, and they were total perfection. All four. That never happens! (And yes, I have already eaten all four.) This post gives you just one way to make the most of this juicy, sweet fruit—probably the most classic of ways, actually. With a vegan twist, of course. Be peachy!

Cut peach into 8 slices. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of cashew cream on each peach slice. (You’ll use 4 slices for each serving.) Stack slices into two, four-slice towers, then drizzle honey over each.

Hemp Milk Latte

I’m a BIG coffee person. Or, latte person, to be more specific. So, when I started eliminating dairy in my diet, my morning latte was one area where I was unwilling to sacrifice on taste and quality. Soy is great, but I started to get tired of it after a while, so I tried almond milk, then coconut milk. Both are delicious in other things, like smoothies, etc., but they tasted really watery to me in a latte. I just couldn’t. Nope. Not gonna work. Someone suggested hemp milk, and I resisted for a while—it just sounded to hippie-ish or something, which was a dumb and total non-reason not to try it And when I finally did, that was it. There was no going back. It was thick, creamy, had a very neutral taste, and–most importantly—made great foam.  Hemp milk was everything this latte addict could have ever dreamed of. If you haven’t tried it yet, you must. My favorite brand is Pacific, and I usually go for the unsweetened vanilla. I use an espresso machine to whip it all …

Pea Pesto Potato Ravioli

I’ve been trying different variations of this potato ravioli for months, and I finally hit on a flavor combo I really like. Pesto is just so easy and so flavorful, so that was an easy choice, But I wanted to boost it with more veggies, so I mixed in spinach and peas…it’s all green, right? My favorite part of this recipe is how the potatoes crisp up when pan-fried. And the ravioli sauce is really creamy and mild, which pairs great with the pesto because it doesn’t distract from it. Hope you like this tasty, grain-free alternative to traditional ravioli. I gobbled it up faster than I’d like to admit. Happy cooking! M Pea Pesto Potato Ravioli Two Servings | Vegan, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Prep time: 10 min | Cook and serve time: 20 min Ingredients: 2 large red potatoes 2-1/3 cups frozen peas, thawed 1/2 cup basil 1 cup spinach 1/2 cup pine nuts 2 cloves garlic 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup cashews 1/2 cup non-dairy milk Prep: Soak cashews in water for …
