colouful coleslaw in wooden bowl with wooden spoons on concrete background

Creamy Sunflower-Ranch Coleslaw – Ditch the mayo and blend up roasted sunflower seeds, with ranch dressing flavours, for a more healthful coleslaw.

Smashed cucumber salad is a glorious, simple recipe that is more than the sum of its parts.

Feature image of Kung Pao style broccoli on handmade grey ceramic plate on concrete background

Kung Pao Broccoli has the tongue-tingling, sweet, salty and tangy taste of the original Sichuan chicken dish, but is vegan and full of fiber.

chocolate chip cookies on metal tray with dark background

Soft chewy chocolate chip cookies with a light touch of fresh rosemary for an adult twist. One-bowl, eggless and easily vegan. A tray of cookies just warm from the oven is irresistible. The urge to pop half of them in my mouth at once builds as the aroma wafts teasingly through the house. Who on …

Spanish Fried Eggplant with Molasses and Rosemary is a delicious, easy appetizer (tapas) to enjoy in the summer sunshine. Fried eggplant with molasses – or honey – is a simple but stunning tapas dish served all across Andalusia, in southern Spain. We have enjoyed it many times, both in Spain and at home.

Roasted peaches with sweet and tangy tahini-kefir cream is your new summer dessert. And breakfast! This post title is a bit of a bold claim. Although I am always proud of every recipe I publish here on Food To Glow, such horn-tooting is really not my style. Rather, I hope you are drawn to open …
