Recipe: Vegan Potato Dill Salad

Vegan Potato Dill Salad

This vegan potato dill salad is a great alternative to the traditional cream based potato salads typically found at summer BBQ’s. The cucumber makes a nice, refreshing addition!

Thai Curry Black Bean Noodles

Bean Noodles

Bean noodles are very high in protein and fiber. They are a great alternative to traditional gluten free pastas, which are usually made from corn, rice, and soy. The black bean noodles taste like traditional pasta to me, and this recipe has the perfect sauce for them. The dark color of the pasta goes well with the bright color of the sauce.
