The Full Helping: Broccoli Tabbouleh

This broccoli tabbouleh features finely chopped, lightly cooked broccoli in place of the traditional tomatoes. Much like a classic tabbouleh, it’s a fresh, flavorful grain salad that makes for a versatile side dish or the base of a nutritious meal. The weather has been cooling down steadily and consistently in New York. With the exception of a strangely balmy, 60 degree day on Monday, it’s clear that early winter has arrived. Of course I’m enjoying all of my favorite cozy, hearty comfort food… The post Broccoli Tabbouleh appeared first on The Full Helping.

The Full Helping: Classic Vegan Pumpkin Pie

There’s nothing I love better than a slice of classic vegan pumpkin pie during the holiday season. This version uses cashews for an ultra-creamy consistency and features a traditional, flaky vegan pie crust. I have very positive feelings about pie. I like apple, cherry, pecan, blueberry, peach, chocolate mousse, key lime, and most of the classic pie flavors. But if I had to choose only one pie to eat, it would without a doubt be pumpkin pie. I love all things pumpkin, and… The post Classic Vegan Pumpkin Pie appeared first on The Full Helping.
