VEGAN TORTILLA SOUP

I have no idea why I felt so daunted to prepare Mexican tortilla soup. Probably it was because I felt that a tortilla soup without chicken wasn’t authentic enough. But then I remembered a place we used to eat when I lived in Mexico City, they served vegan tortilla soup. They served this super tasty broth in a bowl and then they placed all the toppings on the side. I loved this… and of course, as a kid, I overdid the tortilla chips and the avocado. My soup was always looked like over sauced chilaquiles… lol. So I went and prepared my version of tortilla…

GLUTEN-FREE CAULIFLOWER BANH-MI

This sandwich; this gluten-free cauliflower banh-mi, is a complete explosion of flavors and textures in your mouth. It has all the flavors I love. It is salty and sweet with a bit of a spicy kick at the end of every bite. And it is perfect for this time of the year. Summer is just around the corner, so I designed this vegan sandwich to be eaten on laps, on the go, on a picnic or just outside. Yes for being outside! I feel this colorful vegan sandwich makes a very happy meal. It is so colorful, easy, healthy, and delicious.   It all starts…

STRAWBERRY AND BANANA ICE CREAM

There’s something I need to confess, it’s not serious, but I still need to acknowledge anyway. I am the pickiest person when it comes to ice cream; I don’t like most of them. So when you see how natural this strawberry and banana ice cream is, I think you understand why I’ve become so picky. 😜 This ice-cream is creamy and fresh; you’ll love it right away. In my house we don’t buy much ice cream, when we do have ice cream, it’s usually homemade or as a special treat for the kids. This ice cream though, is the easiest thing in the world, and…

Collard Greens Burritos

These collard greens burritos or wraps are the perfect solution when you need to eat a quick lunch, or you want to take a break from using the stove. Last week both the kids and Sergio were out of town. No kids meant no soccer games or errands to run, so I decided to take a vacation day for myself. I tuned everything out… errands, work, and I even took a break from the kitchen. I was able to read and do something else, but the day came and went incredibly fast. It’s always ok to take a day off from the kitchen, but that…

Banana ice cream with homemade chocolate peanut butter

This recipe for banana ice cream with homemade chocolate peanut butter is one of the easiest recipes I have. The other day I was talking with Santiago and we were trying to figure out since when we read the labels of everything we eat. We started years ago, time flies! Santiago is allergic to dairy since day two of his life. But my household did not become dairy free until Santiago was two or three years old. At that age his allergies manifested with ear infections. Poor boy, the ear infections were strong and very painful. I remember once Santiago saying to me, “Mommy, have…
