Easy Green Curry Paste (10 minutes!)

I have a thing for curry (exhibits A, B, C, D, and E). That is the understatement of the year.

I am totally obsessed with curry! The flavor, the aroma, the versatility – I’m hooked.

Since I figured out a DIY curry powder, I figured it was due time I made my own curry paste. Yes, a real jedi-level move. Be impressed.

Friends, I have to say I don’t know what took me so long to try this recipe, because homemade is sooooo much better than store-bought.

If you like spicy, saucy food, this recipe is for you. And seeing as we are about to enter grilling season (at least in the Pacific Northwest!), it’s the perfect time for another a grillable plant-based recipe.

Shall we?

The inspiration for this recipe came from Jamaican jerk chicken. It’s been so long since I’ve had that dish, but I’ve always been drawn to smoky, spicy, earthy foods.

We’ve been digging golden milk for a while now, so it was due time to share my go-to recipe.

If you haven’t tried golden milk yet, you’re missing out! It’s a creamy (dairy-free), hot milk drink that’s filled to the brim with nutrients.

Yes, a delicious beverage with health benefits. Dreams do come true.

My version is inspired by the lovely Nutrition Stripped and requires just 8 ingredients, 1 pot, and 5 minutes

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge (4 Ingredients!)

Peanut. Butter. Fudge.

Yes, I’m on a fudge kick, and no one is gonna stop me.

This fudge was inspired by its chocolate fudge cousin and is somehow even easier to make. Probably because it only requires 4 ingredients and 30 minutes to make.

And yes! It’s still naturally sweetened and surprisingly healthy for you (hello, protein and healthy fats).

Sometimes, you just need comfort food in your life. But comfort doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. Such is the case with this healthy yet insanely creamy red pepper tomato soup!

If you have 30 minutes, you can make this simple, nutrient-rich soup that’s perfect for chillier days or when you just need a comforting bowl of soup. Or if you made a grilled cheeze and need a dipping companion.

Collard greens are one seriously underappreciated vegetable (hello, health perks).

I used to overlook them all the time. But, once I figured out what to do with them, they became a mainstay in our kitchen. Let me show you how.

This dish is simple, requiring just 1 pan, 20 minutes, and 8 ingredients to make!

My version is modeled after traditional, Southern-style collard greens, which typically require bacon or ham.

I’m sure by now you’ve tried the 1-ingredient magic that is banana “soft serve” ice cream?

If not, you must. It’s just frozen, ripe bananas whirled into creamy soft serve. In other words, it’s what a healthy foodie’s dessert dreams are made of.

Flavor options are endless! But, for this particular recipe, I went with a recent favorite: Chocolate tahini!

It’s no secret that I have a thing for tahini and chocolate.

Vegan 7-Layer Salad

Raise your hand if you A) are from the Midwest, B) have ever been to a church or community potluck, or C) have eaten at your grandmother’s table.

Hand raised on all three.

If you answered yes on any one of these, you’ve likely experienced a 7-layer salad. Say hello to its vegan cousin.

This recipe was actually a reader request, and seeing as I just mastered Vegan Mayonnaise and Coconut Bacon (and Eggplant Bacon), I figured it was perfect timing.
