Rainbow Spring Rolls

Summer is coming, and we want something cool and fresh to eat.  A quick trip to the Farmer’s Market, and you are all set to whip up these spring rolls in less than 30 minutes.  We used red pepper, cucumber, avocado, mango, carrots, green onions and purple cabbage, but these spring rolls are so versatile–whatever fruits and vegetables you have available can be added to change up the flavor.   Paired with almond cilantro dipping sauce, this is  a perfect summer lunch, dinner or snack.  Of course, they are completely gluten free, dairy free and vegan.   More…

Chipotle Cashew Dip

Not everyone in my family is on board with the plant based, gluten free, healthy diet.  Accordingly, when we make food, we often have to make it healthy without sacrificing taste.  This Chipotle Cashew Dip is the best!  Recently, I had an informal get together with friends, and I made this dip.  No one knew that it was vegan, gluten free and dairy free–all  they knew was that they kept coming back for that tangy spicy flavor.  The ultimate compliment?  Asking for the recipe.  This is a quick dish to make.  Serve with tortilla chips or raw vegetables.
