Orange, Fennel, & Saffron Steamed Tofu

These chunky, smoky baked beans with herby potatoes make a perfectly satisfying treat for brunch one weekend, or an easy mid-week lunch or dinner. You can use the potatoes to scoop up the beans like a huge chip. Get in...

Extra-Smoky Pulled Jackfruit Gyros

If you think that eating a plant-based diet means that you can't eat gyros any more – think again! Just because I'm vegan, that's not to say I don't like them. I just like mine ethically made, and these delicious,...
