Mushroom and Cabbage Vegan Quesadillas with Parsley dipping sauce

I’m apparently in the mood for warm gooey filling and crispy bread. I write up a menu each week to help me make my grocery list, and this week’s menu has grilled cheese (vegan, of course) with tomato soup, enchiladas (gotta use up that butternut squash), and these quesadillas. (Note to self: make a healthier menu next week.)

White Bean Bruschetta

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

I’ve been on a mushroom kick lately for some reason. They’re just so dang good.

Spring Pea Tart with Asparagus and Cashew Ricotta

What is it about spring that makes me want to cook all the green things? Or at least, all the pretty things - I’ve got savory tarts, macarons, and brightly colored pureed soups on my mind lately (and recipes are forthcoming). This savory spring pea tart with asparagus tart is definitely spring inspired. The rich base is made from peas and coconut milk, then seasoned with fresh mint, lemon, and shallots. Top this with a dollop of creamy cashew ricotta and you’ve got a slice of something lovely.

Beet Hummus Drizzled with Pistachio Oil

Beets. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you can’t deny they’re a beautiful color, and so is this beet hummus. This hummus recipe is definitely for beet lovers. The beets weren’t just added for color in this one - they also contribute to the flavor. The acidic lemon juice is a perfect counterpart to the sweetness of the beets, and the pistachio oil adds savoriness and a beautiful color contrast.

Hearty Chipotle Black Bean Quesadillas 

These quesadillas feature a savory, smoky, and slightly spicy black bean spread tucked into in a crispy quesadilla shell with onions and peppers. Using a pureed bean spread instead of whole beans makes these stick together perfectly, even with the vegetables.
