Chimichurri Potato Tacos with Pinto Beans

Chimichurri Potato Tacos with Pinto Beans | @naturallyella

This recipe is in partnership with California Olive Ranch. See below for more details.

My love of tacos knows no limits. If I can figure a way to put a vegetable in a taco, I’ll try it. These potato tacos are a riff from a vegetarian taco I had some time back at a small taco cafe. They fried their potatoes and it was a fairly simple potato/salsa combination. I’m obsessed with this chimichurri sauce so the more I can use it, the better. I’ll make a double batch and use it throughout the week on egg skillets, enchiladas, and lots of tacos. Just make sure you use good olive oil (like one California Olive Ranch’s oils) though- I can make or break the chicmichurri!! Read more and see the recipe.

1-Bowl Ginger Cookies (V/GF)

1-Bowl Ginger Cookies (V/GF)

True story: I was photographing these while our UPS guy was dropping off a package and he said, “Wow, those look good.” So I offered him one, and the next day he said, “Those cookies were BOMB.”

That just about sums it up.

These cookies are a play on my Fluffy 1-Bowl Vegan Gluten Free Sugar Cookies and require just 1 bowl to make!

To get that quintessential warm holiday spice, they’re infused with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and molasses.

Vibrant Coconut Green Curry

Vibrant Coconut Green Curry

When we traveled to Japan, we found this amazing restaurant called Mr. Farmer (recommended by my pal, Erin). It was a hidden gem that had tons of juices, smoothies, salads, and vegan fare, and I was in absolute heaven.

One of the dishes I enjoyed there no less than three times was a green curry so vibrant in color I was instantly obsessed. It was perfectly seasoned, creamy, and super comforting when we were thousands of miles from home.

2016 Holiday Gift Guide!

Are you the gift giving type? We are admittedly quite terrible at it, which is why we don’t typically do gift guides on the blog. However, we get asked often enough that I thought it was worth sharing a few of our favorite cooking, food and blog-related things at the moment.

I also included a few of our products in case you didn’t know we have a print and digital cookbook, as well as a food photography course – which would make great gifts for the cooks + bloggers in your life.

Slow Cooker Black Bean Dip

Slow Cooker Black Bean Dip | @naturallyella

Post sponsored by Crock-Pot® Brand/Mirum Shopper. See below for more details.

I feel like when people think of bean dips, it’s easy to jump right to hummus. I always love a good hummus, and the occasional hot-cheesy hummus dip. However, I’ve found enjoyment in playing around with other beans for dips. My goal for holiday parties is to make food that feels indulgent but also has a side of healthy to it. This black bean dip is heavy on the beans with a bit of cheese mixed in. Then I load it up with avocado, onions, and serve it with hot sauce. For me it’s the perfect holiday appetizer to please a crowd. Best of all- everything is tossed in the Crock-Pot® slow cooker and left to cook until the beans are tender.

Brussels Sprout Pizza with Goat Cheese

Brussels Sprout Pizza with Goat Cheese | @naturallyella

I find it hard to believe that I went a solid chunk of my life avoiding Brussels sprouts. These little brassicas heads, when prepared well, are an absolute cold weather treat. For the most part, I roast the Brussels sprouts as it’s near impossible to cook them into mush or a horrible flavor. This Brussels sprout pizza is a favorite of mine on pizza night and one the whole family can agree on making. I like to include all those loose leaves that fall off as you cut the Brussels. They turn into crisp chips on the pizza, adding a fun texture to the overall recipe. Read more and see the recipe.

Quick & Easy Crispy Tofu (25 minutes!)

Quick & Easy Crispy Tofu (25 minutes!)

If you follow my Instagram stories you likely already know I’ve been tinkering with my How To Make Tofu Taste Good recipe to make the process even faster (20-25 minutes!).

I thought it wasn’t possible to make crispy tofu without baking it for at least 30-40 minutes. But, I was wrong.

One night when I was super hungry and desperate for dinner fast, I tried this new-and-improved method and it worked so well I’ve since used this one exclusively!
