Savory Veggie Muffins

Savory Veggie Muffins

Don’t we all love the popular “build-your-own” pizza? Of course we do! And why? Because there’s only on it what we like. These muffins follow exactly this kind of approach, and they are very international. You can give them a Mediterranean twist, Mexican, Indian, or […]

Mom’s Red Cabbage

Mom’s Red Cabbage

Tzatziki

This is my bring-me-back-to-Greece vegan version of the wonderful and versatile side dish that is a staple food in the Greek kitchen. You can eat it as a dip with pita wedges or raw vegetables of your choice, top mixed salads for the Mediterranean touch […]

Probiotic Cashew Sour Cream

Probiotic Cashew Sour Cream

One of the things I used to miss when going vegan was sour cream … paired with baked potatoes, Indian dishes, in cucumber salad, as a dip…. the list goes on. I tried a couple store bought brands, but none of them made my hit […]
