Spicy Cauliflower Basil Rigatoni

Pasta and vegetables are always so great together and that’s never been more true than with this spicy cauliflower basil rigatoni. This dish is especially tasty, and hearty, too! Made with rigatoni, a pasta shaped like ziti (pasta tubes) but enlarged, this is a satisfying, filling entrée. Because of it’s larger size, rigatoni takes a […]

Cranberry Orange Pistachio Biscotti

The third biscotti recipe in the trilogy with Triple Chocolate Vegan Biscotti and Simple Vegan Almond Biscotti is my favorite: a cranberry orange pistachio biscotti.

Triple A Summer Salad with Ditalini

Triple A Summer Salad combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, but especially the “A”s: arugula, asparagus and artichoke hearts. The asparagus is sautéed to al dente, with a soft outer bite but still slightly crunchy insides. I add the artichoke hearts cold from the refrigerator. The arugula (along with the rest of the salad) […]
