Cornbread Stuffing

If it’s cold and you’ve been eating a lot of chili (or a lot of chili-like bean dishes), you’ve probably made a lot of cornbread to eat with that chili. And if you’ve been making lots of cornbread, then there’s a possibility that you’ll find yourself with extras. Of course, you can console yourself by eating cornbread with maple syrup for breakfast but, while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, you might be hankering for something new after a few […]

White Bean Parsley Dip

White bean dip is a classic, protein-packed snack or appetizer. And by using the Magic Bullet, it’s also a simple and quick recipe to prepare!

Cherry Pie Smoothie

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one […]

Pecan Nice Cream

Would you believe me if I told you healthy ice cream low in calories, fat and sugar that tasted completely delicious actually exists? It sounds too good to be true, but I promise it’s real! Blended frozen bananas mixed with any flavoring of your choice is the best and healthiest ice cream ever! If you’re thinking it’ll just taste like blended frozen bananas, don’t worry. When you freeze the bananas, the flavor is less strong, so with the added flavorings, you can’t […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Every time I make this pumpkin pie, nobody knows tofu is the secret ingredient until I say it. People are always surprised by the tofu, but it actually makes a mean pumpkin pie! Instead of adding evaporated milk or cream, I use tofu to make this pumpkin pie vegan. The tofu and pumpkin blend together nicely with the spices to give you a creamy pumpkin pie filling. And it becomes totally soft, creamy and delicious after baking it in the oven! It […]

Pumpkin Mousse

If you find yourself craving pumpkin pie this holiday season, why not skip the extra calories and make a healthy pumpkin mousse instead? This pumpkin mousse is vegan and gluten-free, and tastes just like a delicious pumpkin pie filling. The secret ingredient is tofu, which makes it really thick and creamy. You can sweeten it with almost any sweetener, from honey to maple syrup to brown sugar. I’ve tried a few different sweeteners in this recipe and they all work […]

Thanksgiving By the Numbers

Do you bake your Thanksgiving pie or do you buy it from the store? How big was your Thanksgiving bird? Is cranberry sauce a must at your dinner table? These little details are what make the Thanksgiving holiday so special – the traditions, the meal. Imagine a Thanksgiving without Aunt Patty’s stuffing, or that classic end-of-meal pumpkin nog. Around the world and around the nation, these traditions differ, but one thing is certain: we should all be grateful for what […]
