Vegan cream of parsnip soup

Vegan Cream of Parsnip Soup

Growing up in France, I remember my grandmother cooking parsnip in soups, and sometimes as a replacement for mashed potatoes. It was naturally sweet and delicate and loaded with cream! It was only years after I came to the states that I rediscovered them. So this recipe is our go-to dish that can be made […]

Dairy-free Indian rice pudding

Dairy-Free Cardamom Rose Rice Pudding

Before I became a vegan, I used to order an incredibly rich Indian cardamon ice cream called “kulfi” at the end of a meal, to end on a sweet note and to refresh my taste buds from all the spices. I also loved the cardamon rice pudding that is usually served with the lunch buffet […]

Vegan beet soup

Vegan Borscht Beet Soup

I woke up early this morning to discover the garden covered by a blanket of snow. Every little branch had a layer, every item had been perfectly dusted. It was a scene straight out of a Japanese garden in the winter. Breathtaking! For some reason, all I could think about this evening was making a […]

Baked strawberry rhubarb crumble

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

  My only memory of rhubard as a child was with jam, a friend used to make and give to my mom. She had a huge vegetable garden bursting with all kinds of edible treasures. I remember helping her around huge cooking pots with long fibrous stems slow cooking in her kitchen. Carefully removing the foam […]

New potatoes and leeks

New Potatoes and Leeks Stir-fry

Nature is such a wonderful thing we often take for granted. Last fall, I discovered some wrinkled potatoes that I had completely forgotten about and as a result had sprouted in the back of my pantry. I proceeded by cutting them into small pieces, each with a sprout and planted them in my garden covering […]

vegan oat crisp cookies

Oat Crisp Cookies

I have sampled my share of vegan cookies over the years and I have to say that most of the ones bought in stores tend to be a little heavy and doughey, until I discovered these little jewels. Light and cripsy on the outside and tender in the middle. Not too sweet, just the right […]
