Kopanisti

Kopanisti, a spicy whipped red pepper dip is the perfect compliment for a gorgeous crudité platter. Kopanisti has been a go-to dip for years!

Calabacitas

Calabacitas

When it comes to veggie loaded side dishes, Calabacitas are all time my favorite. Loaded with onions, peppers, zucchini, corn and tomatoes and then covered in melted cheese, it’s the definition of a comforting side dish that’s still most healthy! Unless your name is Gaby and you pick all the cheese off the top and eat …

Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili

Hands down this Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili is the best vegetarian chili I’ve ever eaten! I’m convinced that there is something wrong with my husband. He doesn’t like chili? What? Who is he?
