We’ve watched the Pixar movie Ratatouille at least a dozen times, but have never worked up the courage to actually make the film’s signature dish. We decided to give it a go. The hardest part is all the slicing of the vegetables. Other than that, it’s easy and fun to put together this healthy French delicacy.
We’re having a French-inspired month of meals, so we made a plant-based tempeh bourguignon. It’s a thick and nourishing stew made with onions, mushrooms, thyme, zucchini, and a marinated savory tempeh that pops with flavor.

Sometimes a classic French baguette is necessary to brighten everyone’s spirits. The crackly crust, soft center, and amazing fresh-baked smell will put a smile on most faces.
I love French onion soup: the earthy oniony broth, the soft soaked bread, the gooey melty cheese. This is the first time I’ve tried making it at home, and it was fantastic. We even made our own plant-based mozzarella from cashews!

Amazingly flaky, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, AND dairy-free croissants with vegan butter and homemade marzipan. I would happily eat these chocolate almond croissants anytime she wants to make them.

When holidays like New Year’s Eve or Easter roll around, we brew up a homemade chocolate fondue to dip all kinds of yummy things in.
