Not Just Another Vegan Potato Salad (Vegan)

NOT JUST ANOTHER VEGAN POTATO SALAD SPIRALIZED TWIRLY BITES (5)

This potato salad is not short any personality. Spiralized, smokey, crunchy, and creamy. And of course it’s naturally gluten-free, ’cause that’s what happens you use vegetables as the base of all your meals and spiralize ’em.

Throwing everything the conventional person knows about potato salad riiiight out the door.
Goodbye mayo.
Goodbye preservatives.
Goodbye dairy.
See ya later sliced fingers… because I use a spiralizer to cut my potatoes yo.

Hello chipotle. The sauce for this is right up there if you love smokey chipotle, well, anything

Curly Cucumber Salad with Seaweed and Ginger Tahini Dressing (Vegan) + Mothers’ Day Discount!

SPIRALIZED CURLY CUCUMBER SALAD WITH SEAWEED (2)

Warning: if you’re emotionally sensitive (like me), you might want to grab the tissue box.

Mothers Day. The quintessential holiday where mothers and daughters connect. Flowers, wine, family gatherings. It all sounds so wonderful, doesn’t it?

When I was eighteen, my mother was diagnosed with a terminal case of cancer. She was first diagnosed when I was four years old, and fell victim to statuses of both “cancer patient” and “cancer survivor.” (More about that here.) Today, I’m talking to the women who, like me, don’t have a mother anymore. To the women who have been affected by disease. To the women whose mothers are no longer in the picture, whether caused by disease, family turmoil, or other disruptive parting. To the women who celebrate mothers day in an alternative way, just like I do.

No Cook Spiralized Summer Chili (Vegan)

NO COOK SPIRALIZED SUMMER CHILI (2)

I’ve got Cinqo de Mayo on the mind and am eating this spiralized summer chili by the pound. This dish screams summer and is chalk full of nutrients. If you love the flavor profile of chili but prefer cold foods and salads in the summer, you’re bound to love this dish. Loaded with spiralized zucchini, black beans, corn, and mexican spices – it is no bake, no cook, can be made with a veggetti (or other spiralizer of choice) and is completely plant-based

Zucchini Mint Springtime Pineapple Salad (Raw)

Zucchini MintSpringtime Pineapple Salad

While my fiance Scott and I were in Portugal, we went to a Brazilian buffet and I had this amaaazing zucchini mint pineapple salad.

Hold on, let me back up a step and try that again.
On our way home from Portugal, we missed our flight, and ended up adding an extra night to our trip in Portugal, as well as a stopover in the Big Apple and Madrid, Spain. Neither were fruitful stopovers (pardon the pun…), except for this Brazilian steakhouse and buffet where I gathered inspiration for this spiralized salad

Blood Orange Twirly Citrus Stack (Raw, Vegan)

SPIRALIZED TWIRLY CITRUS STACK

This post was originally going to be a crispy kale, zucchini noodle, blood orange salad. And dang, did that combination of ingredients taste good. But, the challenge with classic combinations of ingredients is just that – they’re classic and have already been done a million times. Kale and blood oranges go together like peas and carrots, and the inner rebellious vegetable-lover in me just wasn’t in the mood for predictable.

The inspiration for this spiralized salad was the result of a snowball effect of being in love with my new 4-Blade Paderno Spiralizer, playing with my food, and being on a blood orange kick. I recently got the Paderno 4-Blade Spiralizer and have been having a total heyday spiralizing vegetables into angel hair or vermicelli! This is truly the best feature of the 4-blade spiralizer and is worth the purchase just for the angel hair blade itself.
