Heirloom Tomato Bisque: Vegan, Three Ingredient Soup

Simplicity paired with clean ingredients is everything. Only three whole-food ingredients are needed to make this rich, nourishing soup. My Sicilian grandmother’s “secret” tomato sauce always started with roasting the garlic to bring out a sweet, caramelized flavor and buttery texture. By using this technique, we can impart those complex flavors and characteristics to this soup. We roast the tomatoes as well to enhance their natural sweetness and earthy, rustic elements. Not only is this soup incredibly simple, but it […]

Anti-Inflammatory Banana Muffins

So, baking, which is more of a science than an art, is not really my forte. So, when Olivia’s first birthday approached and I knew I wanted to make her a healthy Smash Cake, I got a little anxious. How would I make […]
