Red Plum + Basil Vinaigrette Recipe *Video

Simple homemade dressing to add a touch of sweetness to your salad

This is a super simple dressing that will add a touch of sweetness to your salad.

This recipe is from a fantastic book by Becky Striepe called Bowls! It's full of yummy and healthy ideas for meals in bowls. This dressing grabbed my attention because it reminded me of a dressing I made one summer with nectarines, which was delicious - and this one using plums was spectacular as well!

Easy + Healthy Trail Mix Recipe *Video

Super simple DIY trail mix for a healthy vegan snack

I often see trail mix in stores, and I think most people assume that this is inherently healthy. The other day, I saw a photo of some trail mix that was roasted peanuts, raisins and m&m's.

Now, there's nothing wrong with junk food sometimes - but the label 'trail mix' I think is misleading in that case. That would not be the fuel I would choose when hiking a trail - even if m&m's were vegan...

Make your own healthy trail mix! It's super simple, and can save some money. Plus you can add a few little treats of your own...

Curried Teff Pilaf Stuffed Squash *Video

Flavorful curried teff pilaf stuffed into roasted kabocha squash

I was challenged to a vegan cookoff by Candice, aka The Edgy Veg. We recruited Whitney, aka Eco-Vegan Gal, to be our judge. She chose 3 ingredients for us, and we each had to come up with a recipe.

Our ingredients were teff, kabocha squash and nutmeg. All lovely, and wonderful for fall cooking.

I love nutmeg with curry spices, so I mixed those together and toasted them into a teff pilaf, which I piled atop a super soft roasted kabocha squash.

If you have trouble finding a kabocha squash, this will work wonderfully with any winter squash - buttercup, hubbard or butternut would be the best ones. You can also make things faster by using an eggplant, zucchini or tomato instead of the squash! Just scoop out the insides to roast, and add the insides to the pilaf.

And if you can't find teff (I had a bit of an ordeal), you can easily swap in any other whole grain - brown rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth - anything, just note that the cooking time will change for different grains so use the standard cooking times for the one you use.

Help me win the cookoff - I need your vote! Just leave a comment below as your vote, and/or click 'like' on the youtube video and/or my facebook post.
