Few meals are as fun as taco night! Especially when you set up a taco bar with some fun and creative taco toppings. In this blog post, I share some my favorite toppings for my vegan tacos, everything from roasted cauliflower to mango guacamole to sweet corn salsa.
If you’re considering trying on a plant-based diet, one of your first questions might be: can vegans eat pizza? The answer is a resounding yes! Vegans can eat pizza!

I am a fool for pickled red onions! I use this pickled red onion recipe at least weekly as I like to always have a jar of them in the refrigerator.

You think I’m kidding, but I’ll take any opportunity I can find to eat them!
This roasted tomato compote with fresh basil recipe is pure gold. The combination of slow roasted fresh tomatoes in plenty of olive oil with a handful of fresh basil will make your taste buds sing. I like to spread it on home olive sourdough or add it as a topping to crispy vegan polenta cakes.
