Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Zucchini Bread Oatmeal with raisins.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with White Beans

Oatmeal raisin cookies with white beans

It’s been awhile since I made a dessert using beans, but a sponsored post opportunity with the S&W Beans was all I needed to get back in that game. I got to sample all of these, but decided that white beans would be most appropriate for an oatmeal cookie: To make the cookies, I made chunky gluten-free… [Continue Reading]

Ohhhh, legumes are back in my life in a big way which checks off one of my New Year’s Resolutions, woo-hoo!

I’ve flirted with eating… [Continue Reading]

Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal with Kale

Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal with Kale from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Please tell me I’m not the only one to cook greens with oatmeal…please, please? 🙂 I had a curly kale salad with a tamarind dressing at a restaurant recently and, because the dressing was sweet, it inspired me to make a breakfast dish incorporating curly kale. This version using oatmeal, strawberries, tahini, and cocoa powder tastes… [Continue Reading]

  I love that this recipe includes plenty of greens and other veggies that get water-sauteed before getting mixed with the lentils and oats. Rip’s recipe calls for spinach but I used kale instead: This recipe makes two loaves, one of which can be frozen and then de-frosted and baked at a later date: A close-up… [Continue Reading]
