Garlic & Herb Sweet Potato Nourish Bowl (30 Minutes!)

Lately, I can’t get enough of romaine lettuce, which is weird considering a few months ago it was my least favorite green (next to iceberg). However, with the creation of our Vegan Caesar Salad with BBQ Sweet Potato Croutons, my love affair began, and it’s been going strong for months.

This is an iteration of that recipe, but with more decidedly Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean influences thanks to the addition of za’atar spice blend, hummus, and tahini (follow links for recipes and to learn about the origins of these ingredients).

Easy Avocado Aioli (Oil-Free!)

I tried to make classic aioli with egg and oil recently, and it was a huge flop. I didn’t love how heavy and oily it was or how much work it required, and I craved something much lighter but similar in flavor.

Easy Avocado Aioli (Oil-Free!)

I tried to make classic aioli with egg and oil recently, and it was a huge flop. I didn’t love how heavy and oily it was or how much work it required, and I craved something much lighter but similar in flavor.

I wondered if nature’s butter — avocado — would make an aioli base, and my suspicion was correct! This creamy, citrusy, garlicky aioli comes together in just 5 minutes with 6 ingredients in 1 blender.

Easy Beet Falafel

The result was a vibrant-colored, magenta falafel that was garlicky, zesty, crispy, and incredibly delicious. Plus, just 8 ingredients and simple methods required!

Origins of Falafel

The origin of falafel is an ongoing and heated debate. Some would say it’s a quintessential Israeli food, while Palestinians claim its Arab roots, and still others claim it originated in Egypt, Lebanon, or Yemen. 

While we claim no expertise on the origins of falafel, we do know we absolutely love its crispy texture and rich flavor.

We swapped eggs for chickpea “eggs” to keep them plant-based and gluten-free. And the result was tender, sturdy fritters that are versatile, quick and easy to make, and incredibly flavorful.
