The Best Vegan Potato Salad

Picnic Potato Salad

It’s finally nice enough to start grilling (and eating) outside, and we can soak up some much needed sunshine. And I am all about picnics and the backyard barbeque spread: burgers, potato salad, watermelon, corn on the cob, baked beans, and chips! But those things aren’t always the healthiest, especially the potato salad. Well, that’s about to change! Introducing The Best Vegan Potato Salad.

Piping Hot Peppers Juice

Meatless Monday: Roasted Pepper & Red Quinoa Soup

Roasted Red Pepper & Quinoa Soup

Warm, spicy dishes are perfect for chilly, rainy fall New England days. We visited a local farm last week and I couldn’t wait to cook up some of the fresh veggies we got like hot peppers, tomatillos and cherry tomatoes; all rich in vitamin C and other immune supporting phytonutrients. Roasting the veggies first brings out rich flavors and texture. I love making soup because we have plenty of leftovers for a quick lunch the next day.

In comes Spaghetti Squash with Avocado “Cream” and Cashew “Cheeze” Sauce.

Fork-Smashed Purple Potatoes with Rosemary & Lime

Purple Potatoes

Power to the Purple Potato! This week’s Meatless Monday recipe is a vibrant side dish to liven up your Thanksgiving table. Think of purple potatoes as a seasonal substitute for blueberries… they both contain the powerhouse antioxidant, anthocyanin, which gives them their bright, blue/purple color.
