BBQ Tempeh Ranch Salad

This tasty salad features tempeh, a traditional soy food that’s been around since about the 12th or 13th century - tried and true. It’s made from whole, naturally fermented soy beans, so it’s easy to digest and high in protein (16 grams in a 3 oz. serving), fiber (7 grams) and vitamins. Like tofu, it [...]

Love a good stir-fry? Me too. There’s something special about crisp-tender veggies, glistening in a sweet and savory sauce, heaped onto a bed of nutty brown rice.

Not-Chicken Green Chile Enchiladas

One of my favorite meals is green chile chicken enchiladas. Before I went plant-based, they were usually the standard chicken and sour cream filled flour or corn tortillas, smothered in salsa verde and a layer of gooey, melted Monterrey jack cheese. Not so healthy. Fortunately, I have a new whole food, plant-based chicken enchilada recipe [...]
