After some experimentation, the result was an incredibly rich, decadent, creamy chocolate frosting that’s secretly made with wholesome ingredients.

Just 1 blender, 6 ingredients, and 25 minutes required.

Cozy Turmeric Porridge (1 Pot!)

When the weather cools down, warm and cozy breakfasts get added to our menu.

This 1-pot oat and turmeric porridge is perfect for satisfying that craving.

This porridge starts with an optional step of the soaking steel cut oats overnight to help improve their digestibility (a step we highly recommend for creamier texture, quicker cook time, and easier-to-digest oats).

The oats are then drained and added to a saucepan where they’re boiled in a blend of water and coconut milk, providing the perfect amount of creaminess.

Creamy Vegan Broccoli Salad (Mayo-Free!)

When considering what recipes to share this holiday season, I couldn’t shake the idea of a plant-based take on classic broccoli salad.

Have you ever tried it? It’s basically a salad with raw or blanched broccoli, bacon, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, and onion tossed in a sweet mayo-based dressing. While indulgent, it satisfies that salty-sweet flavor I’m often looking for in salads.

So I got to work on an easy plant-based version and am super pleased with the results.
