Smoky Collard Greens

Smoky Collard Greens

Yes, I am a Southern girl, and one of my favorite side dishes is collard greens. I love them with a little apple cider vinegar. And they aren’t just tasty – they are SO good for you! They support detoxification, they are a great source […]

Kale with Tahini Garlic Dressing

Kale with Tahini Garlic Dressing

This dish is similar to the kale that you find on the cold bar at Whole Foods, and it was inspired by a recipe on eatingbirdfood.com. I just increased some of the amounts and changed some of the proportions of the dressing ingredients a bit for […]

Vegan Macaroni Salad

Vegan Macaroni Salad

It’s a funny thing, but I never liked macaroni salad when I was a child – or anything else that was mayonnaise-based. I thought it was pretty disgusting. I only liked mayonnaise on tomato sandwiches. I didn’t even like potato salad, back then. Strangely enough, […]
