This is so easy to make and one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. The best part? You only need 5 ingredients to start and it costs TWO DOLLARS to make. Who says eating healthy & vegan is expensive?! I often eat this pizza on weeknights after a long day of work but I once made a whole batch of these, sliced em’ up and served them as snacks to friends during movie night (they didn’t know they were vegan bwah-haha).
I woke up today thinking “I want to make a bunch of pumpkin flavored recipes…” so I went out to Whole Foods, bought some organic pumpkin puree and got to work. These were the first of my pumpkin experiments and they turned out really fluffy, moist & delicious– despite the fact that they’re gluten-free and vegan (sometimes gluten-free baking turns out like a brick). I added apples to the muffins to add an extra sweetness- they’re at the peak of their season right now and absolutely delicious so head to your local farmer’s market, co-op or grocery store and stock up.
Here are a few yummy vegetables that you can find at your local farmer’s market this fall: sweet potatoes, bell peppers and onions! This morning I made a delicious baked breakfast hash using these three ingredients along with a few spices and condiments.
I am so excited to be back in my kitchen! I have been on the road for the past three weeks for work in New York City and then vacation to Europe (more on that in another post) and the one thing I couldn’t wait to do when I returned home was to cook. So much so that I woke up at 7AM this morning and went straight to Whole Foods (jet lag was partially to blame for this…) For lunch today I made myself a Spicy Soul Bowl and it was definitely spicy but really really good if you like a kick to your food.
One of my favorite things to do is cook for other people. Whether it’s cooking a delicious meal for friends, family & co-workers, bringing a jar of fresh salsa as a hostess gift to a BBQ or baking sweets that’ll make someone smile. Last Friday a friend of mine helped me out with a project and I promised him a pie as a thank you, then asked him what flavor he wanted. He said he loved berry cobbler which is what inspired this recipe. You may notice in the photos I made two… one was for my friend and one was for my co-workers (I simply doubled the ingredients to make an extra to bring to work.)
This beautiful fruit salad makes a lovely dessert, snack or breakfast side dish. It is light, healthy and refreshing on a hot summer day plus it’s packed with lots of energy-boosting vitamins and minerals to keep you going. All ingredients are fresh at the local farmer’s market now, so enjoy them while they’re in season!
