Red Lentil Stew with Tomatoes, Rice, and Coconut

This wholesome and earthy stew was adapted from The First Mess‘ beautiful and delicious extra recipe bundle that is available when you pre-order Laura Wright’s cookbook (which is by far and away the most inspirational cookbook I’ve bought in a while). I primarily adapted this because I didn’t have all of the ingredients in the […]

Black Bean Fettuccine with Kale Pesto

The pesto was adapted from the recipe from This Rawsome Vegan Life. It is healthier than the usual ones heavy in oil and I further lightened it by substituting white beans for pine nuts. But it still tastes just as delicious and packs the same pesto punch.

I love winter.  Just like […]
