Savory Chickpea and Onion Pancakes

Since adopting a plant-based diet, I have found it difficult to make “healthy” pancakes (my definition of “healthy” is no ultra-processed flours) that actually hold together and become fluffy. I recently made a new friend who introduced me to chickpea pancakes, and I fell in love with them. This pancake recipe is so simple and…

Fava Bean and Pesto Toast

Spring is here, which means fava beans are too! I am obsessed with fava beans – I’m not sure whether it’s their almost buttery texture, their abnormally large size, their shocking green color or a little bit of everything that draws me to them, but when I see fava beans at the farmers market, I…

Spiced Pear-Banana Bread

I was listening to Oprah’s Supersoul Conversations podcast and she was interviewing the author and public speaker, Brene Brown. Brene said something that resonated with me. She said “Unused creativity is not benign–it metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgement, sorrow, shame. We are creative beings. We are by nature creative. It gets lost along…
