Sauce: Tahini (…It’s falafel-glee!)

Tahini sauce was one of my first recipes I ever put on Facebook almost six years ago. Around that time I wanted so share how to make falafels.  It is basically a Samara Commandment: “Thou shalt not eat falafels without tahini sauce!” Skip the ...

Sauce: Plant-based Tzatziki (…For your falafel chickpea!)

When it comes to Mediterranean food, it doesn’t get better than a loaded falafel pita.  To be loaded, it must have organic, fresh raw veggies, tahini sauce, and tzatziki sauce (plant-based, of course)! I love my falafel sandwich on the warm side with ...

Avocado Dressing (Plant-based)

Avocado Dressing (with a guacamole impression!)

I put avocado dressing on almost all of Mexican dishes.  I love the stuff!!!  This avocado dressing resembles guacamole, not a runny dressing.  It is a thick, chunky paste made with plant-based yogurt to stretch the avocado.  If you simply do not have any ...

Plant-based Caesar Salad Dressing

Plant-based Caesar Dressing (…more than impressing!)

Glory Bowl (Plant-based)

Bowls of Glory (…so great for ye!)

In truth I’ve been eating glory bowls as long as I can remember, but we just didn’t have a name for them.  Now-a-days, they are called other names as well (buddha bowls, hippie bowls), but I prefer the name glory bowls because  these are ...

Hummus w/ Roasted Pepper (Plant-based)

Hummus (… that’s really a must!)

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Mediterranean foods.  Actually, these foods call me by name. I especially love hummus.  Hummus is made from beans, usually garbanzo beans (chickpeas).  As a child, my mom would make this and we called it “Garbanzo ...

Lemon Tahini Dressing (plant-based)

Lemon Tahini Dressing (…is a blessing!)

To get away from it all this summer and to spend sometime in peace and majesty, I went to the mountains.  While there, I visited the Laughing Seed Cafe, a vegetarian restaurant in Asheville, NC.  On their summer menu, this cafe has their signature Laughing ...
