Salads & Soups

Chef V’s tip: Most of my salads are delicious with my Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette or Creamy Avocado Dressing. Use these on any salads unless otherwise specified.

My Grilled Mango Salad is perfect for a hot summer day. It combines the hearty flavor of black beans with the luscious richness of mangoes and avocado, all in a healthy salad, perfect before or after a Chef V Cleanse.

Ambrosia salad is to die for Yum but also you might die from the ingredients! Yikes! Sugar on sugar on sugar! Oh wait, a little cream too! So, I’ve decided to remix this Easter classic and make a yummy, healthy and vegan ambrosia salad.

The only thing more comforting than a bowl of soup is a bowl of homemade soup that is both vegan and gluten-free. There’s something special about cooking comforting meals like this during the Fall that will warm you up and have your kitchen smelling festive.

Smoothie bowls are growing in popularity. They are easy to make, super nutritious and they look so pretty! I love green smoothie bowls because you can make them all sorts of different flavors on the top or blended in.

Balinese Urab is a salad made with any of a wide range of vegetables. You can use whatever vegetables you like – I used green beans in this recipe and added red lentils – the variation I learned in my cooking class. Balinese red bean salad: Urab.

Yes you can grill watermelon! It will reward you with a smoky flavor and lots of sweetness. Combining the scent of outdoor barbecues with the fresh fruit flavors we love, the result is memorable. Try this on your friends and revel in the compliments.

Green is good! Let me show you a variety of tasty ways you can create a sensational salad. Start with locally sourced organic greens, top your salad with a variety of colorful vegetables, fruits, legumes and a touch of lean protein. Salads are easy to prepare and are a super convenient way to get more nutrients into your diet.

Pomegranate seeds are so yummy. They are sweet and tart and add a delicious crunch to any dish. They have lots of fiber and two essential Vitamins, C and K. Sprinkle them on your favorite salads and soups or toss them into your next smoothie.

My Creamy Broccoli Soup is made with coconut milk and coconut oil. In case you didn’t know, coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat.
