Free Whole Food Plant Based Holiday Desserts E-BookBy chef-Julia.comSticking with a whole food plant based way of eating during the holidays is fairly new to me. Last year, my first year of starting on my own plant based journey, I was still eating food with oil and vegan butter so making desserts wasn’t hard at all. When I started eliminating refined sugar, oil, vegan butter, and most salt, the challenge was real. I’ve been testing recipes for months to find ways to make this new way of eating sustainable for me. With the upcoming holiday season approaching, I started testing dessert recipes recently to see if I could make things like pumpkin pie or pecan pie taste as good to me as the old “classic” versions.

Award Winning Plant Based ChiliBy chef-Julia.comI won awards with this chili! It can be as spicy as you like by adding the hottest New Mexico red chili powder and hot Hatch chile peppers, or toned down with mild green chiles and mild red chili powder. I have been making a version of this chili for my family for decades, however, now it's all plant-based. In the summer, here in Texas, we can purchase fresh Hatch green chiles in August, roast and freeze them for later in the year. My roasted Hatch chiles add a depth of flavor to this dish. It's also a great dish to use your homemade beans, any type is fine.
Black Bean and Brown Rice Falafel with Tahini SauceBy chef-Julia.comThese crispy nuggets of deliciousness are good alone or inside a whole grain wrap with chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, parsley and lettuce. They can also be made in the oven or air fryer.
Sardinian Minestrone SoupBy chef-Julia.comQuick and simple with the use of canned beans, this soup can be made on a busy week night. Fresh vegetables, herbs, beans, tomatoes, and pasta make this hearty soup the perfect meal for a cold night. It tastes even better the next day and freezes well.
Full of Flavor Oil Free HummusBy chef-Julia.comThis oil free hummus (pictured on veggie tray) has that something extra from the addition of miso (or aminos) and spice from cayenne. Leave out the cayenne if you don't like spice. Add the red bell pepper or leave it out. It's delicious both ways.
Savory Pumpkin and Sage Fusilli PastaBy chef-Julia.comIf you love the flavor of pumpkin in savory food, this pasta dish is for you. Creamy pumpkin sauce with a hint of tomato, fresh herbs, and Plant Parm topping will make this dish a fall favorite.
Plant-Based Jambalaya SoupBy chef-Julia.comI love soup in the fall and winter, especially soup with loads of spicy and bold flavors. I created this soup because I sometimes crave the rich dishes I used to enjoy such as jambalaya and gumbo, however now that I enjoy a whole food plant based diet, I'm finding new ways to satisfy my cravings. No oil, no flour, just fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and this soup is absolutely delicious. It tastes even better the second day and freezes well. If you're not a fan of tofu, use beans instead or use both.
Homemade No Sodium Vegetable StockBy chef-Julia.comI've never found a commercial vegetable stock/broth or dry seasoning that tastes good to me. Most are too salty or have flavors I don't enjoy. Unlike commercial vegetable stock or seasoning mixes, this recipe does not contain salt, and due to the few ingredients, it just tastes like good, fresh vegetables. Keep it frozen in small portions and you'll always have stock available.
