This Sloppy Joe variation can be as spicy or mild as you’d like. If your family members aren’t fans of spicy dishes, use less hot sauce or use a milder sauce in its place.

This quick frittata is one of the most requested dishes in my household. It can easily have countless variations by using seasonal vegetables from your local farmer’s market in place of the ones listed. Try shredded kale instead of asparagus and zucchini in place of the carrot for a fun twist or try adding minced red pepper for a dash of color.

A delicious starter to any meal when served with crisp vegetables
or small bites of bread, this tapenade features some of the finest flavors in European cuisine. Use as a mix-in to stews and pasta dishes for a ton of added flavor with very little effort.

Here’s something a little creamy, a little sweet, and easy to pair with nearly anything. Behold, shockingly simple, pretty, sumptuous sweet vegan ricotta. This spread pairs beautifully when slathered on crackers or toast, crowns fruit in a gorgeous way, adds oomph to baking recipes, and is a creamy, dreamy topping for oatmeal and granola. I like
mine nestled between french toast and marmalade.
A small dish of this is an elegant addition to any brunch
table or party (when paired with fruit and sweet biscuits for dipping). Making a strawberry shortcake? You’re gonna need this. Extra perk: I’ve made this before for kiddos and they lap it up. And since there are no processed sugars, grains, or gluten, it’s a sweet treat everyone can feel nice about. Recipe and photo contributed by Ashlee Piper, from The Little Foxes. Read More→
When author Brian Patton (aka The Sexy Vegan) began dating his soon-to-be wife, he offered to entertain her with Friday night happy hours at her apartment or his. After a long workweek, she was ready to kick back and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine, and it was the perfect way to enjoy summer evenings. After a couple weeks, these evenings weren’t just for two because her friends begged for invitations after hearing rave reviews of Brian’s delicious tapas and appetizers.
