Best homemade hummus

One of the best reason to keep a few cans of garbanzo beans in the pantry? To make hummus! It’s so easy to make in a food processor, takes all of 5 minutes.

What’s hummus made of? Cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Purée everything, top with some paprika and a swirl of olive oil and voilà, you’re done!

  • Kale Pasta with Sunflower Cream Sauce

    My kitchen would not be complete without a stash of nut/seed cream (so much so, in fact, I made a video for the pantry reset series.) It’s a lovely addition to soups, porridge, dressings, or sauces. This kale pasta is the perfect way to use the sunflower cream. The pasta comes together fast and also [...]

    Of all the pantry inspired meals, these tacos are one of my favorites. Lentils soak up flavors amazingly well. Then toss those spiced lentils in a warm tortilla and add your favorite toppings: it’s a perfect recipe for dinner. Beyond the flavor, these chipotle lentil tacos are fairly fast and most of the time is [...]

  • Sumac Acorn Squash Soup with Parsley Sauce

    This is one of those recipes that I like to push the flavors just a bit. The sumac lends a slightly brighter taste to the acorn squash while the parsley/tahini sauce brings the balance. It’s a perfect partnership that also happens to be vegan (thanks for creamy white beans). I also find this soup is [...]
