I’ve been making and eating this spinach pesto for a long time, and it’s already featured on this website along with a full meal recipe, but I think this pesto is so easy and tasty, it deserves it’s own space in the recipe index. It’s a great way to incorporate a big quantity of spinach and extra virgin olive oil in your meals, and add some extra vibrancy, nutrition and taste on the plate.
You remember the easy Brazilian cheese bread I shared a few months ago? It was so easy to make and so delicious, I feel like you never need any other bread recipe. Well, if you are familiar with the recipe, this one comes from the same source, my dear Brazilian friend who was so kind to share it with me and all of you. Luana’s Brazilian Sun Kissed Bread, or ‘Pao de beijo’ in Brazilian (kiss bread) is a plant-based, dairy-free version of the above mentioned cheese bread.
This one sheet pan easy meal was born from another attempt to find ways to eat artichokes. I don’t know about you, but those artichoke hearts – frozen or from a jar – are not exactly the tastiest thing you can eat, and I’m a little bothered by texture. But these prosciutto wrapped artichoke hearts might be the best way to eat them.
Mustard greens are not something you easily find in stores, especially if you shop at small stores like I do, but you most probably find a vendor selling mustard greens at the farmers market. We went to Dallas farmers market on Saturday and found a super nice lady from whom I bought the mustard greens, some small and super delicious carrots and a big bunch of daikon radishes with the greens on.
My love and obsession with both Greek and Middle Eastern flavors and cuisines show in this meal. Having lived for eight years in the Middle East (Dubai), both my husband and I want to experience those amazing flavors in our Dallas home regularly, and every now and then we put together a meal like this one. This one pan beef kebabs platter will probably become one of our favorite home cooked meals.
Let’s start this one by saying that tacos must be the most loved food in the world. And I think that besides the taste of a good taco, the reason people love them is the experience of eating them. When eaten at home, it can be a fun sharing experience, and everyone can add their fillings and toppings of choice. And I don’t know about y’all, but I love eating food with my hands. Of course, there are many other popular foods that requite a wrap or a base, such as hot dogs, burgers, rolls or sandwiches. This list includes my favorite lectin-free, grain-free wraps and my favorite ways to use them. They are a blessing if your are following the Plant Paradox lifestyle.
Recently I asked for feedback on Instagram about what you ladies and gentelmen will love to see more on my website in the new year, and some of you asked for more Chinese inspired dishes. I love Asian inspired food, but we all know it is close to impossible to eat Plant Paradox compliant in an asian restaurant. So I made it a mission to create more lectin-free asian inspiried recipes.
Store bought granola if one of those foods I never understood why they are labeled ‘healthy’, because even the best ones are full of sugar and questionable ingredients. So this is something I used to make at home occasionally, even before starting the Plant Paradox, using oats, maple syrup and butter. It was about time to work on a lectin free, vegan option and this one doesn’t disappoint. I can even say is one of the best granola I’ve ever made. In case you didn’t know what more to do with a green plantain.
