I love simple salads like this Quinoa Salad with Smoky Roasted Carrot Fries. You can have them any time of the year, no matter how warm or cold it gets. Take it with you to a summer picnic or backyard barbecue party, serve it as a funky side dish during the winter holiday festivities or enjoy it as a light lunch at work.
This Summer Peach Quinoa Tabbouleh is perfect for barbecue season! You can serve it as a light lunch with some hummus and crackers, use it in a wrap with a simple tahini lemon sauce or take it with you to a barbecue and serve it as a side dish. I love combining it with sweet potato falafel (you can find the recipe in my book Vegan & Raw) and roasted eggplant for a Middle-Eastern feast :)
I’m really excited to share this week’s dessert recipe & Healthy Foodie Inspiration: Cailin Rose’s Raw Vegan Strawberry Lime Cheesecake :) These are a lot easier to make than you would suspect and so refreshing! I love having them as a soft serve ice-cream treat 5 minutes out of the freezer.
This Healthy Breakfast Parfait with Banana Ice Cream, Raspberry Chia Pudding and Coconut Yogurt is a delicious and nutritious way to start the day!

Today I wanted to share a third recipe from my new book Vegan & Raw 2 to celebrate the start of the summertime & barbecue season: Grilled vegetable skewers with Mexican quinoa.

Serve them as a summery appetizer with several dipping sauces, take them to your next barbecue as a vegan side dish or enjoy them as a light lunch. Healthy party food with a Mexican twist!
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream tastes just like Snickers candy bars - or Reese’s peanut butter cups depending on where you grew up. Banana soft serve topped with salted peanut drizzle, raw chocolate sauce and crunchy peanuts… Sounds good, right? You can serve it as a sundae or pour it into a popsicle – whatever you’re in the mood for!
This Summer Vegetable Coconut Curry is a dish I have cooked in various different versions and it has been loved by everyone that has come across it. Sounds a bit big headed I know, BUT it’s a favorite in our house too. It’s perfect when you have sad vegetables in the fridge that you haven't had time to cook but also don't want throw away.

Who would’ve thought you could make such incredible ice cream with just frozen bananas and a food processor!
Today Simon & I are making one of my favorite childhood comfort food snacks: mini pizzas! These Vegan Pizza Bites with Cashew Cheese are gluten free, really easy to make and loaded with flavor.

Looking for a Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara recipe that tastes as good as the creamy Italian classic - or even better? I think you’ll be amazed by this creamy carbonara sauce!
