Holistic Recipes

Cooking and baking have long been two of my greatest joys. I maintain a plant-based, whole-food diet about 90% of the time so the majority of these holistic recipes will be vegan and packed with yummy nutrients. I say 90% of the time so that when I do post the occasional recipe with meat or dairy or more heavily processed ingredients you hopefully won’t be shocked or feel I am being unauthentic!

Cashew Pad Thai (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
Cashew Pad Thai (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
I was never really a pad that kinda girl, but this vegan and gluten-free Cashew Pad Thai has me hooked. Just enough savory, just enough sweet, just enough spiciness, and a beautiful blend of Asian flavors. I love how quick this recipe is and it saves great! Lasts for 2-3 days in the fridge and the noodles begin to absorb the flavors of the sauces to make it even more delicious.

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Roll Cake
I have been making this recipe non-stop for about 3 weeks now. I seriously can't get over it. First, you would never even know it's gluten-free eating it, and second, every single bite is like eating the middle of a cinnamon roll. However, there is significantly less sugar than in a standard cinnamon roll so you won't feel sick after 2 bites or even an entire piece.

Gluten-Free Asian Sesame Salmon
I made this recipe for the first time...yesterday...and am so obsessed with it I knew I had to make it the recipe of the week. This gluten-free Asian sesame salmon is bursting with savory flavors that will have you seriously considering licking the plate before you're done.

Gluten-Free Lemon Broccolini Penne Pasta
This gluten-free, lemon broccolini penne pasta the perfect in-between summer dish for me. I have been SO into anything with lemon on it recently and this was the perfect way to create a savory, warm dish that still had a fresh lemon-y taste to it!

Vegan Waffles
Vegan Spelt Cocoa Waffles
Sometimes you just need a nice fluffy waffle on a cozy morning to go with your coffee. I love these because they are just chocolate-y enough to make your taste buds dance, but not so sweet that they leave you feeling sick to your stomach afterwards. As a plus, they are full of healthy ingredients like banana, chia seeds, coconut oil and oat milk!
Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake
I am not a big pumpkin fan, but this pumpkin coffee cake has just the lightest hint of pumpkin with an amazing crunchy, pecan streusel topping. Flour can be replaced with alternative options to make the recipe gluten-free!
Avocado Hummus
Avocado Hummus
I can get pretty picky when it comes to hummus. It can’t be too grainy or too chalky and don’t even try and offer me just plain ol’ chickpea hummus… Hands down this is my favorite hummus recipe. Such an easy and quick recipe to make for a quick snack or to bring to parties!
Vegan Chickpea Frittata
Chickpea Frittata
Before I switched over to a whole-foods, plant-based diet I was a die-hard egg lover. I had eggs every single day without fail and when I was considering changing my diet I thought giving up eggs would be the hardest part. In the end, I felt so much better physically after giving up meats and dairy that it was worth it either way, but recipes like this certainly helped make the transition easier!
Vegan and Gluten-Free Buckwheat pancakes
Buckwheat Pancakes
Let me just start by saying I do NOT like pancakes...but these guys redefined what a pancake could taste like. They're vegan, gluten-free and still perfectly fluffy and moist! I make these at least once a week because they are just so easy and quick to make and top with whatever fresh fruit we have in the fridge that day.
