The alive team has done a lot of recipe testing over the years. These are the ones we absolutely love.
At alive HQ, we get top-notch recipe developers to dream up dozens of healthy recipes every year. Our team makes, photographs, and iterates the recipes before publishing them in this mag or one of its sister publications. We’re constantly tasting, talking about, and oohing and aahing over new dishes ... and then going home and making the best ones again and again. For the first time, we’re sharing some of our team’s personal favorites from the alive recipe archives. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself making these drool-worthy and doable dishes a few times a month. They’re our gift to you!
Sandi's Pick! “This delicious granola recipe has been a pantry staple for family members and friends for nearly 10 years!” says alive's senior editor. “It even travels with us wherever we go.”
“I tried this at the alive photo shoot and then made it for my girls,” says our Group Content Director. “We’ve been eating it regularly ever since. I’m always a fan of a simple, plant-based meal that my kids love! The sauce is also incredibly versatile, and I use it as a base for tons of other meals.”
“I’ve made this side dish for many winter gatherings,” says alive’s managing editor. “For a quick one-pan dinner, I’ll roast chickpeas along with the cauliflower and serve everything on a bed of kale.”
“These super delicious vegan stuffed shells are the ultimate comfort food without the guilt!” says the alive designer.
alive’s Group Creative Director has this to say about this healthy dessert: “It’s a delicious, super easy-to-make ice cream substitute—and anything with maple syrup is at the top of my list!”
