Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Curry

A warm and hearty vegan slow cooker pumpkin curry that’s sure to satisfy on a cold fall or winter night. I don’t hate the day when I decide it’s time to bring to the slow cooker out of the storage closet and into the kitchen. It’s usually some day in October when the temperatures start to drop and the heaters start to kick on in our apartment. The leaves have already started to fall and outside is a sea of red, yellow and orange.

But the million dollar question is what is the worthy recipe that will kick off slow cooker season in our household. This year it was curry.I’m a big fan of curry. I’ve been eating it since the first Thai restaurant opened up in my hometown when I was in high school. And I ate loads of it when I traveled to Thailand a few years back. And…

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing that’s packed with greens, apple cider vinegar, EVOO and is completely dairy-free. Perfect over a kale salad, a sweet potato, or even used as a dip. A few weeks back I had a loaded sweet potato that rocked my world. It had kale, black beans, and Annie’s Green Goddess dressing. While I love Annie’s products, I knew I had to try and recreate this masterpiece from scratch.And to learn in just 60 seconds how to make this dressing, check out my video below!

Traditional green goddess dressing calls for mayo and/or sour cream. I’ve even seen buttermilk thrown around! But I wanted to make a dressing using only greens, unrefined plant oil (aka EVOO), and vinegar. I’m not gonna lie.I also just love the name of this dressing. I think everyone deserves to feel like a goddess every now and again. I…

Vegan Loaded Sweet Potato

The ultimate vegan loaded sweet potato – packed with kale, black beans, and topped off with a homemade green goddess dressing. Perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I’m excited to bring some new life today to the most popular recipe on my blog, including a brand new video (see below)!

This recipe was created on a whim a few years ago. Steve was working late and I was left to fend for dinner by myself. I wanted something that fit the following criteria:

  • Fit for a table of one
  • Healthy
  • Warm, comforting & grounding (in Ayurveda, root vegetables like the sweet potato are thought to be grounding – I talk more about Ayurveda principles in Nourish Your Namaste)
  • Easy to make
  • Filling & satisfying
  • Delicious (obvs)

I had sweet potatoes and kale at home already so I was inspired to build on that and…

Mini Tuna Sushi Burritos

These mini tuna sushi burritos are the cutest appetizers to serve at your next get-together! Not to mention, they’re pretty delicious too.  I remember my first sushi burrito like it was yesterday. It was a few years ago in California (of course, it was California – all the best food trends start there). And I was like this is genius. The version I ate that day had all the sushi components wrapped up in a tortilla but most versions I see these days are wrapped in seaweed or nori. Which, if you think about it a sushi burrito is basically like one big (and better) sushi roll. Not sure what I mean? Watch my video for how to make these mini sushi burritos below!

I honestly think one of the reasons I like sushi burritos so much is because they usually contain guacamole (a play…

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This whole-wheat pumpkin chocolate chip zucchini bread is easy to make and delicious for breakfast or snack or dessert! It’s pumpkin season ya’ll! I’m always a little sad to leave summer behind but the promise of pumpkin everything on store shelves gives me a glimmer of hope for fall.

We’ve got one more week of our CSA (sad face) and are still getting zucchini in our boxes. To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of summer squash but I do enjoy it grated into fritters and bread. So I made a few loaves of zucchini bread over the past few weeks and I’m still not sick of it. Especially when I tweaked the recipe and added in pumpkin, walnuts, and wait for it…CHOCOLATE CHIPS! Quick breads like banana bread and zucchini bread are the best because…they’re QUICK! And they’re quick to eat the morning too before you head out the door….

3 Days in Prague and Review of Prague Food Tour

A recap of my 3 days in Prague – where to eat and what to see, including an awesome Prague Food Tour!Prague was my next stop after Copenhagen — a quick 1.5 hour flight from Denmark to Czech Republic. I stayed right in Old Town Square which was a huuuuuge mistake. I thought it would be a good idea to stay somewhere central given that I was traveling by myself but after being woken up at 2:30am every night to some drunko playing the accordion outside my window, I realized I should’ve stayed somewhere a little more off the beaten path.

DAY ONE:

When I first arrived to Prague, I was craving very non-traditional Prague food, i.e. a salad. I went to a place my vegetarian friend had recommended called Lehká Hlava, or Clear Head. It’s like this yogi oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town…
