There are matches that are made in heaven, and just off the top of my head I can think of a few: fries and ketchup, cookies and milk, chips and salsa, and yes... the famous... peanut butter and jelly. It's a childhood classic for a reason, and for me, the fun of eating means going back to those early favorites. The recipe we're sharing today, which was filmed and created specially for our friends at the amazing non-profit Vegan Outreach, is the perfect combo of one of Carlos's favorites (French toast), and mine (pb and j). This means that just in time for Valentine's Day, we decided to make a love hybrid-love baby-breakfast goodie.... 'cause nothing is more romantic than breakfast. Enter the pb and j stuffed French toast, trust me when I tell you you're not prepared for the amazing layers of flavor you'll get with this dish. It's pure bliss on a plate.Read More
This has to be one of my all-time favorite recipes. I always try to keep tortillas handy because I know I can whip this up in no time, and I always have tofu and potatoes in the house.
This is one of our quick fix recipes, meaning I try to show you how to make a delicious dish without the need to measure a single ingredient! This gives you so much freedom in the kitchen, and it's perfect for those very busy days in which you literally need to throw stuff together in a pan and go.
I got the idea for this dish because many moons ago, back in my meat eating days, I had a shawarma sandwich that had french fries inside the wrap along with the other ingredients. I can't even begin to describe how the textures complimented each other. This dish is 100 times better though. The contrast between the flavorful veggies, tofu and seasonings, not to mention those perfect skillet potatoes stuffed inside the soft tortillas, is simply a dream. If only you could serve it with guacamole... oh wait! Yup! It's absolutely heavenly, and one of my favorite recipes.Read More
Happy 2016 everybody! It's so nice to be back in the blog this week now that the new year has rolled in. I hope you all got a chance to see the special New Year's Eve post I wrote for you last week. We've made the commitment to have the healthiest start to the year and basing our meals as much as possible on whole plant-based foods that our bodies will thank us for. All the videos and recipes coming your way will be super simple to make, delicious, and extremely healthy for you.
I have to tell you that I love the new year. It's the perfect moment for a fresh start, especially when it comes to changing our daily habits. There's so much momentum associated with this time of year that I like to take advantage of that and use it to make changes in my life. One of those changes this year was using part of my Christmas break to completely revamp my kitchen. We cleaned, tossed, fixed, re-organized and put a ton of methods in place so that it's always a nice welcoming space that is ready for you to cook in at the drop of the hat. I can't tell you what a difference this has made in the way we eat! We'll be talking about getting organized really soon so stay tuned. I hope you're all having a very inspiring start to the year, and as we always do on Mondays, we're kicking off the year with our recent vegan meals, straight from our kitchen table, in the hopes that some of these dishes will inspire you in your kitchen. Let's get to the grub!Read More
