I was inspired to make this Mexican fiesta salad/hors d’oeuvre after attending the Food Revolution Summit, this year. One of the best goals for eating we can have is to try to count the number of plants in each dish. Here we have over nine. This means we are getting tons of nutrition in every bite!
Spicy Immune Boosting Vegetable Stock with Ginger and Mushrooms
I made this spicy, gingery, garlicky veggie stock for my best friend Gigi. Born in Texas, we both love spicy foods and she asked me for something to give her dishes a “kick”! Here it is! Not only does this stock tickle your tastebuds, it’s full of nutrients to make you feel great. Use this stock whenever a recipe calls for vegetable stock, or add vegetables to the stock and simmer until cooked through for a delicious, spicy vegetable soup. You can also use it in a salad dressing instead of oil or when making hummus!

Almond Butter and Jelly Sandwich
I came up with the idea of this sandwich when I was at a Culinary conference workshop on how to present a recipe on television. The producer asked us to teach how to make a PB&J sandwich in 2 minutes, using our own ideas and point of view.
Since Garen of Eydie is all about elevating the nutritional content of our recipes, and making it elegant to eat, I came up with this idea to make an elegant hors d’oeuvre. Using almond butter, no oil or salt, and a quick homemade strawberry balsamic jelly, the old fashioned PB&J turned into an adult amuse bouche! It’s a great way to make PB&J healthier and delicious for the kids too!
Dapple Cookie Sandwich, Please!
Garden of Eydie is always imagining a world filled with the most delicious, fun, and health promoting meals and snacks. Boy oh boy do these no-bake snacks have it all. I call them Dapples because they are made with dates and apples and it’s a name kids will love and adore – and ask for more and more!
Dates are amazing for the digestive system, great for a better night’s sleep, ideal for diabetes as they deliver vital glucose to the liver. They’re high potassium to refuel the brain and muscles for super active people! Apples are anti-inflammatory. A true brain food, colon cleanser, and so much more. Oats are grain free and super satisfying!
Granola Bars You’ll Love
I have a wonderful group of neighborhood friends I visit with, many mornings per week and talk, tell stories and laugh so heartily! It’s a great way to start the day. I wanted to create a healthy breakfast granola bar to bring to these special people. My team and I tested several recipes and this one was the winner! Filled with oats, banana, nuts and seeds, no sugar added dried fruit and superfoods, this morning treat will fill you up without any guilt!
Winning Super Bowl Dip
This enticing layered dip will take your Super Bowl experience to a whole new level. Whether your team wins or loses, this recipe will brand YOU as the winner of best in show! Smoke is a great way to add flavor to your food and you won’t miss the salt or oil! The Smoky beans, crunchy lettuce and refreshing pico de gallo is sure to increase your fan base. Don’t tell anyone how easy it is to make, ….or do and everyone wins!
The Best Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
I must admit, I am definitely not a Vegan Baker. It takes a lot of knowledge of how the variety of plant-based ingredients react in baking. I thought I’d give it a try and made a cookie I was craving: Cranberry Oatmeal. How hard could it be?, I thought Well, I tried it 3x, and I “bombed” 3x. I had to turn to Garden of Eydie Vegan Baker extraordinaire, Ashley, and asked her to give it a go. She quickly put them together the day I asked her and brought them over. And boy are these “the bomb!” I don’t think you’ll find a more delicious and healthy plant-based cookie than this one. Look no further. Make these!
