Lentil Burgers

These lentil burgers are so delicious and versatile, they have quickly become a staple in my home (my boyfriend begs me to make them every single week). So versatile, in fact, that these ‘burgers’ don’t have to be eaten like a burger at all. I often simply throw them in a salad or break them up into pieces mimicking a meatball of sorts. They’re a great form of plant based protein, and perfect for meal prep. Make ahead and store them in the fridge for lunches all week!

Magical Cheesecake Cookie Dough Bars

I’m going to go out on a limb here and proclaim that this might be my favorite recipe to date. These cheesecake cookie dough bars (or squares!) are as vibrant and pure as my namesake; not to mention they are raw, vegan, paleo, refined sugar free and their cookie dough base contains beautifying medicinal mushroom powder! These magical bars boast a hazelnut chocolate chip cookie dough base, a lemon raspberry layer, and a marbled orange blossom & vanilla bean layer topped with fresh figs and pistachio crumbles.
