The Easiest Roasted Vegetables

My first thought, always, when someone says they don't like vegetables is, "but have you had roasted vegetables?" Because there's a difference. And if you've had them or made them, you know. This is not the same. Steamed Brussels sprouts and the crispy, caramelized sprouts that come out of the oven might as well be… Continue reading The Easiest Roasted Vegetables

Dairy-Free Mashed Cauliflower + Parsnips

I never in a million years would have thought mashed cauliflower and parsnips tasted so good. I mean, yeah, I'm a huge veggie lover (obviously), but I gotta admit "mashed cauliflower" isn't exactly tempting... Of all the things you can do with cauliflower - roast it, rice it, pizza-crust it... mashing it has gotta be… Continue reading Dairy-Free Mashed Cauliflower + Parsnips

The Benefits of Souping + Detox Broccoli Soup

Writing up this detox broccoli soup recipe got me thinking... Have y'all heard of "souping"? It's the same idea as juicing but instead of replacing meals with juice you swap in soup. It's gained quite a bit of popularity over the last few years as a detoxifying alternative to juicing that is a bit more… Continue reading The Benefits of Souping + Detox Broccoli Soup

Basil Broccoli Chicken Spaghetti (Squash)

I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but here in Texas, we’ve officially begun that schizophrenic  time in between summer and fall where the weather just can’t make up its mind. This is usually how it goes… the temperature drops to the 80's and for a few fleeting days we remember… Continue reading Basil Broccoli Chicken Spaghetti (Squash)

Coconut Chicken Curry

Since getting back last week from India… I mean Austin… I think I’ve had curry four times. Why am I confusing Austin and India, you ask?

We were there primarily to see my friend Lauren perform in… Continue reading Coconut Chicken Curry
