Vegetable Ceviche

    Vegetable Ceviche

    This beautiful, tasty, and vegetable-packed ceviche makes the perfect appetizer for friends on a warm summer evening. The vegetables are so perfectly uplifted by the tangy citrus and aromatic herbs, you won’t even notice the fish is missing.


    Sweet steep

    This ceviche can be served immediately, but tastes even better after resting in its sweet citrus juices for a few hours. It will last for up to three days in the fridge, so make a double batch and enjoy as a deliciously cool snack over the coming warm days.

      Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

      Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

      This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
