Black Eyed Pea Dip with Lime Avocado Topping

I love the flavors in this black-eyed pea dip (which really resembles more of a salsa). I especially like the tanginess of the green olives and lime juice. The dish is so refreshing and satisfying!

Fresh Crunchy Pasta Salad

For a quick and satisfying meal, try this crunchy fresh pasta salad. The pasta is filling and celery, bell pepper, and onions add a ton of crunch. Mustard, vinegar, lemon juice and dill add delicious, tangy flavor. Try a different type of pasta! Beet, spinach, and chickpea pasta are great alternatives. Many of the healthier […]

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

I love cauliflower made like good old fashioned mashed potatoes, but with vegan ingredients substituted. I grew up in the southern US, and mashed potatoes were very common. We had […]
