Strawberries and Cream
Recipes, Snacks

Recipe: Strawberries and Cardamom Cream

It’s summertime and the berries are ripe. Numerous. Begging to be made into simple desserts, like this one: strawberries and cardamom cream. This recipe nods to a childhood summer night favorite, updates the cream, and makes it an anytime thing in two simple parts. First, a gentle cashew cream, lightly sweetened and laced with vanilla bean and cardamom. Then, strawberry halves macerated in lemon juice and coconut sugar. Pour the thick cream, garnish with strawberries, and there it is. Guiltless, gentle, and vegan without the frills. Nutrient-rich and subtly Scandinavian. Keep the ingredients on hand and you’ll be ready for casual parties, dinners at home, or a mid-morning treat, just you […]

Considering… Dates

Dates are timeless. Dates are nourishing. Dates are not an old people thing. Most definitely not. Dates have been cultivated by humans for more than 9000 years. From the Middle East to California, we’ve relied on their sweet caramel taste and high fiber content for both pleasure and nourishment. Call them old lady food, call them nature’s candy… Dates are highly versatile and pretty freaking perfect. They also just so happen to be experiencing a revival thanks to clean baking and the widespread rejection of refined sugar that’s sweeping the food space in the form of raw dates, date syrup, date sugar, date paste, date flour… […]

Valentine's Day Cheesecakes

Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecakes

“But desserts take a long time to make!” Wrong-o. This one whips up in fifteen minutes and keeps in the freezer for up to two weeks. The recipe relies on a raw walnut crust, cashew coconut cream filling, the wonder that is freeze-dried strawberries, and melted dark chocolate, swirled or zigzagged to your liking. Here’s why it works: Walnuts for a graham cracker crust sort of thing Raisins to bind and sweeten all at once Sea salt to contrast the sweet Cashews for a smooth, fatty, cream cheese-esque experience Coconut oil to set the perfect sliceable texture Agave nectar to sugar […]

Chickpea Cookie Dough
Recipes, Snacks

Recipe: Chickpea Cookie Dough

Cookie dough. It’s a weakness. Admit it, you’ve had more than one cookie batch that never made it to the oven, and you’ve lived to regret it. Enter chickpeas. You’re going to have to use a little suspension of disbelief while crafting this, but once they’re blended, you’ll be none the wiser. Packed with protein and sweetened just so, we sometimes eat this one for dinner because, well, we’re adults. Also bakes well and is able to hold its own in a cookie-in-a-mug experience, if that’s your style. Chickpea Cookie Dough Prep time: 10 mins   |   Yield: 4 servings
