Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

I've always been a sucker for an indulgent creamy pasta sauce, vegan or otherwise. Anything creamy really. Tomato sauce or Alfredo? Alfredo. Cheesecake or brownies? Cheesecake. Spinach dip or Hummus? Spinach dip. Caesar salad or vinaigrette? Caesar. You get the picture. Now, as much as I love a silky, tangy, garlicky creamy alfredo sauce, I… Continue reading Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

Who else loves the potatoes from Greek restaurants?! I think they're so delicious that I used to order extra potatoes instead of rice when we ordered Greek take-out. Now that we eat exclusively plant-based, the trouble with simply ordering Greek potatoes from a restaurant is that they're often cooked using chicken stock or chicken base.… Continue reading Lemon Greek-Style Potatoes
