Vegan Tartar Sauce

For me, this is the perfect Summer sauce! I confess I use it as a dip too, and as a topping for any veggies I’m cooking that day, and for beach sandwiches, and by the spoon too, it’s that good! The classic version is made with mayonnaise, but I prefer this...

Revolutionary Quinoa Granola

I absolutely love the crunch of a good granola on top of my smoothie bowls and chia puddings. With that said, for a few years now, I prefer to avoid oat-y granolas. I notice that, personally, I get more bloated and uneasy when I take too much grains and legumes. I...
