And since this meal has so few ingredients, it’s easy to adjust the rich, savory and pungent flavors to fit your family’s taste. Makes: […]

Sneaky Spanish Rice Bowls

By Alisa Fleming My cauliflower-hating husband was non the wiser when I served him this dish.

Makes: 3-4 servings Free of: gluten and all […]

The juice from legumes is revolutionizing egg-free baking. From its beginnings to meringues, mayo and more, let’s explore the wonders of aquafaba. Substituting eggs in baked goods isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and powders, flaxseeds and applesauce are often being replaced themselves as the staples of egg-free creations.

mayo

Simple Egg-Free Mayonnaise

By Laurie Sadowski An immersion blender works best to emulsify this mixture. If you don’t have one, a food processor or blend on very low speed should work, just make sure it doesn’t foam. I love a robust olive oil in this, but neutral oils work well, too. Makes: about 1 1/4 cups egg-free mayo […]
