Rhubarb, Strawberry & Walnut Muffins bunch

I am lucky to live near a great farm that sells fresh produce on Saturdays. They always have an abundance of leafy greens, as well as lots of gorgeous seasonal delights, like ramps, spring garlic, and garlic scapes. And when I visited my local farm last weekend, there was a beautiful bunch of rhubarb just begging to come home with me. 

I never really ate rhubarb much growing up. I have vague memories of my grandfather, who was a pastry chef at one point in his long and varied life, making rhubarb pie. But to be honest I can’t really remember what it tasted like. It wasn’t until last year that I decided to try it again and instantly fell in love with its bright, tart flavor.

Street Vegan by Adam Sobel: A review and recipe!

Once upon a time, New York City’s food trucks were devoid of many vegan food options. But then, three or so years ago, the Cinnamon Snail blasted on to the scene. Within a few months, Adam Sobel’s vegan food truck gathered a cult-like following among New York City vegans and non-vegans alike. And it was a happy, but rare, occasion when the Cinnamon Snail didn’t have a long, winding line of hungry New Yorkers waiting for lunch.  When news broke that the Cinnamon Snail wouldn’t be serving NYC on a daily basis any more, the lines grew longer and longer every day as everyone tried to get in their last fixes. And I will admit, that I was one of those who spent hours in sub-zero temperatures lining up for sandwiches and donuts on the Snail’s last regular day in the city.

Spring Vegetable and Tempeh Crepes!

When ramps and fiddleheads are in the market, I know it’s finally spring! It felt like it took forever for spring to arrive this year… Especially after the long, snowy, bitterly cold winter that we had here in New York.  But now it’s here I’m loving every minute of it. From the delicious veggies: the ramps, fiddleheads, and asparagus! To the delicious feeling of warm sun on my skin (protected by sunscreen, of course!). I’m lapping it up!

Raw Strawberries and Cream Granola

One of my go-to weekday breakfasts is granola with vegan yoghurt and fruit. And right now, as I’m finishing the last of my WholeSoy Co. plain yoghurt (sob), I thought I would share my recipe for a delicious raw strawberries and cream granola. It’s great with yoghurt and fresh strawberries, or with a little vegan milk. Either way, it’s a healthful way to start your day.
