Orange Cranberry SconesThis recipe was inspired by the orange cranberry scones they offer at Starbucks. They were one of my mom's favorite desserts there, until she found the recipe and was able to make them at home. She passed the recipe along to me and I was able to make it plant-based to enjoy. These scones are a great sweet treat because the whole batch only contains 7 teaspoons of sugar. That's almost less than ½ a teaspoon per scone, and that's a whole lot less than your average dessert. The glaze adds a little bit more sugar, but it is always optional.Raw German Chocolate CheesecakeFree of refined sugar, grains, gluten, dairy, and eggs, it contains no tricky ingredients and really consists of only two components: a crust made from nuts and cocoa, and a creamy center made from…nuts and cocoa. The entire recipe can be made in a high-speed blender and it’s kind of magical to see the way the ingredients transform into something that tastes so distinctly like German chocolate cheesecake. I won’t deny that this is an incredibly rich cake, so make sure to be mindful of portion sizes!French ToastThis isn't your typical eggy, drippy french toast, but trust me, it is delicious.Cuban Black Beans and RiceThis isn’t just beans and rice, this is beans and rice with a kick!Sweet Pea SoupThe humble pea soup.

Tabbouleh is a fresh, lemony recipe that highlights the taste of parsley rather than just the look of it.Tabbouleh Hummus WrapThis is a great example of mixing and matching recipes. Take the Tabbouleh recipe and stuff it into a wrap with hummus. Fantastic!Roasted Brussels SproutsThe secret to making Brussels sprouts palatable to just about anyone: roasting. Roasting Brussels sprouts brings out their wonderful nutty flavor, plus it’s really easy to do. One brilliant bonus: the roasting process browns and crisps the outer leaves, turning them into crunchy chips to munch on straight out of the oven.
