Uplift the nutritional profile of your next serving of nut-butter!

Date Bran and Pecan Muffins

This recipe is healthy enough to eat for breakfast and the muffins are sublime served up with a bit of nut butter or virgin coconut oil.

No-Bake Fruit Squares

These squares are the no-bake version of the double-stuff fruit squares already featured on the blog and a great choice for entertaining, brunch or afternoon snack.

Basic Veggie Pâté

This is a basic all-purpose veggie-centric spread that works beautifully on crackers, toast, in sammiches or pan-fried and crumbled on top of a salad.

African-Style Beet Greens

While mushed or creamed greens will never win prizes for appearance they’re comfort food with a nutritional punch.

Butternut Tuile

Half-way between a cracker and kugel, the four-year-old in residence here declares that ”it’s good Mom. It doesn’t taste healthy;” which is praise coming from a child. Bonus – it actually is good for you even though the squash provides sweetness in every bite.

Meatless Loaf with Sweet & Sour Sauce

This is a perfectly spiced millet and cowpea (or lentil) loaf that can shine alone – or that you can jazz up with a generous helping of sweet and sour sauce.

Beet Loaf

A stick-to-your-ribs rainy-day kind of meal: crunchy comfort food of the vegan variety.
