Vegan Carrot Waffles

Vegan Carrot Waffles

It’s springtime, and one of my favorite veggies is in peak season – the humble carrot. I love them in soups, in tacos… and right now they’re my favorite vegetable to eat for breakfast. Currently, I’m alternating between carrot cookies and these waffles that are – you guessed it – in the new cookbook!

This is one of my favorite recipes, (and also one of my favorite photos from the book – how sweet is this little breakfast scene that Jenn set up!?)

I like to make these on a Sunday morning and store the extras in the freezer for easy weekday waffling. I let them thaw slightly and then pop them in the toaster until they’re crisp around the edges.

There are step-by-step photos for some of the recipes – including this Crispy Baked Eggplant which is my healthier version of eggplant parmesan. I used hemp seeds and sunflower seeds instead of parmesan and it’s SO delicious – I can’t wait for you to try it!

Spring Brunch Recipes

Spring Brunch Recipes

Happy second day of spring! I don’t know where you live, but it’s been absolutely gorgeous around here lately so I’m going to brag about it a little bit. The sun is shining, colorful vegetables are showing up at the markets, and mint (a.k.a the only thing my black thumb can “grow”), is spreading like a weed in our yard.

I’m not sure what our Easter brunch plans are yet, but I’m already looking forward to the weekend. If you’re starting to plan your holiday meal, here are a some of my favorite fresh & bright brunch recipe ideas to get you started!
