Potato Gnocchi with Ligurian Pesto and Tomatoes

I enjoyed a glorious week in Tuscany at the most amazing cooking school run by Giuliano Bugialli. This was one of my very favorite recipes. I plant-based it and omitted the oil and it still tastes great! I also substituted Whole Wheat flour for white flour for a more nutritious dish. It’s unusual and so delicious! Making the gnocchi takes a bit of practice but I’ll guide you along the way.


Roasted Portobello with Currant Millet and Curry Sauce

I love “plant-basing” my favorite recipes from cookbooks I own. This recipe was inspired by Chef Alfred Portale’s cookbook named after his revered restaurant, Gotham Bar and Grill, NYC.


Beet Noodles (Boodles) with Tomato Cashew Sauce

Inspired by love for Valentine’s day: Ashley loves making healthy dishes for her boyfriend. She wanted to give him something he loved, like pasta, but wanted to find a way to make it more nutritious. Instead of red roses, Ashley made a plate full of red ingredients, using red beets and red tomato sauce. What an unexpected and delightful combination, which did the “trick” if you know what I mean!


Arugula and Blood Orange Pumpkin Seed Pesto

In the winter when Blood Oranges are abundant, I love their sweet/tart flavor so much, I try to find a way to put their delicious juice in everything I make. This unique take on pesto worked so well! The sweet/tartness of the orange balancing out the spiciness and earthiness of the arugula, combined with the richness of toasted pumpkin seeds, makes for a delicious spread for pizza crusts, pasta, zoodles and more.


Millet Cookies

When I was in seventh grade, I used to go to my Grandma Janie’s house every Tuesday afternoon for tea. Of course, high tea always includes cookies and pastries, so I would pretty much waddle my way out the door when we were done. I miss those Tuesdays with my grandmother, so I decided to create a plant based cookie that will always remind me of the special times and tea we shared.  –Ashley
