Vegan Banana Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cardamom Bread

I have a thing for cardamom & try to add it into recipes often. It reminds me of shopping at the Indian markets when I lived in nyc & would get the cardamom pods to crush open to make fresh chai tea. The flavor in the bread is very light so don’t be fooled by the powerful smell of it in the batter.

Evolution Salt Co New Spice Line + Recipes

I’m back and with some exciting news from Evolution Salt Co! They’ve come out with a delicious new line of spice blends and finishing salts! All infused with their high quality pink Himalayan Salt. I’m such a fan of their gourmet salts and cooking tools (salt slab fan here) so I couldn’t wait to try these out! The spice blends come in Vegetable, Red meat, Seafood & Poultry. While the finishing salts come in Basil, Rosemary and Garlic. We all know I’m plant based but you can definitely use their meat spice blends in any plant based dish. Their Red meat blend is actually one of favorites & contains Himalayan salt, garlic, shallot, parsley and thyme-yum! I’ve had these for a couple weeks now and loved experimenting with them in pretty much all my dishes! I wanted to share 2 of my favorites recipes today-pizza with homemade marinara sauce and summer pasta salad.  Eat them together or save the pasta salad for your next BBQ! First up-lets get saucy.
