Tasty Jackfruit Taco Recipe

Difficulty Easy

This recipe is perfect for a weeknight when you want something tasty and healthy but don’t have a lot of time. Upton’s and the Jackfruit Company also marinate their jackfruit ahead of time so you really don’t have to add that much flavor to them, but as someone who loves spicy, flavorful food, I still add many spices to fully bring out the flavor. You can easily eat these fajitas in a corn tortilla as a taco or just in a bowl by itself with some toppings. Either way it will be delicious.

Ful Mudammas Recipe: Simple, Flavorful Snack

Cooks in 15 Difficulty Easy

Ful is a perfect weekday snack, appetizer at a party, and veggie barbecue accompaniment during those warm, but limited summer months. And best of all it’s ethically guilt free insofar as it’s a vegan snack that is quite healthy and nutritious. You can find Fava Beans in the international section of most grocery stores.

Just make sure you have some good balsamic for the marinade and heat it on the grill enough for it to get that charred grilled flavor.  Impress your guests at your next grill out and they won’t remember that you had a vegetarian barbecue!

Beet Tartare Crostini Recipe: Perfect for a Moody Dinner Party

Cooks in 1 Hours, 30 Minutes Difficulty Medium

Hosting or going to a dinner party?  Not sure what to make?  Want to bring something different from the usual cheese and crackers?  A beet tartare crostini will not only impress your guests, it will also please your gut.  While beets do take time to prepare, they are absolutely gorgeous and vibrant (oh and healthy) – I wanted to make a unique and fun appetizer for a dinner party I went to so I figured why not make a twist on a traditional beef tartare?  The beet tartare crostini was not only beautiful to the eye but also extremely pleasing for the palate.

Vegetarian Egg Scramble Recipe: Perfect for a Hungover Weekend Day and Busy Weeknight

Cooks in 40 minutes Difficulty Easy

I love making this on busy weekends when I have a bit more time to cook than on a weekday but not quite enough time to make a frittata or something more elaborate.  This is also great for a busy weeknight because all you really have to do is chop some vegetables, season them, and add in the eggs.  It’s probably one of the fastest dishes I make.  Depending on what I have, I love to mix up the vegetables, dill is quite inspirational for me as dill and eggs go together perfectly.
