    Such a lovely recipe! Thanks for this book presentation, will have to add it to my library too!ReplyCancel

  • Nandita26/04/2017 - 5:45 am

    Love the usage of pulp that would be otherwise discarded! I feel guilty about throwing away even the veg-fruit pulp after juicing. Would love to try this when I make my next batch of granola :)ReplyCancel

    • Laura26/04/2017 - 9:17 am

      Depending on what fruit/veg you’re juicing, the pulp is really great in muffins and energy ball mixtures (maybe not so much if you’re juicing kale though hehe).

  • Kelsey @ Appeasing a Food Geek26/04/2017 - 6:34 am

    Love this idea! I can’t believe that I’ve never heard of a use for the pulp before. I will have to pick this book up! xoxoReplyCancel

  • Rosie26/04/2017 - 6:39 am

    I use my nut pulp to make ‘hummus’ (as I cannot eat legumes)… add a little tahini and it tastes almost identical!ReplyCancel

    • Laura26/04/2017 - 9:16 am

      That is such a cool idea! Trying that next time. Thanks!

  • Sonia26/04/2017 - 6:48 am

    So many nut pulp recipes require first to dry out the pulp in an oven before it is actually used in a recipe (ie cookies). Too long a process for those lazy among us. I love the idea here that you get the delicious results in just one step! This may get me using my pulp again. Will try. Thanks for sharing! xxReplyCancel

  • Shirleen26/04/2017 - 8:08 am

    I just received this book yesterday and am exited to try many if the recipes. I have a dehydrator, how long do you think to put it in for? ThanksReplyCancel

    • Laura26/04/2017 - 8:13 am

      Hi Shirleen,
      I’ve only made this in the oven, so have no idea how long it would take in a dehydrator. Most dehydrators have a maximum temperature of 155, so my guess is that it would take almost double the time. I’ve made raw crispy cereal in a dehydrator before that took a full 7 hours on the highest setting though. I’d set a timer for 4 hours on the highest temperature and check it at that point, but I think it will take longer. Might take some experimenting/Googling to get it just right.

    • Emily26/04/2017 - 12:25 pm

      I would start for about an hour around 135 and then lower to 110 for another 7-8 or until you like the texture.ReplyCancel

  • Karen26/04/2017 - 10:57 am

    Thanks for this recipe! Can you tell me where you get your almonds? Do you look for unpasteurized almonds or do you have an opinion about that? Costco has a big 3 lb. bag of almonds for about $19., but they are pasteurized and I’ve been trying to find a good place to buy almonds…either online or a store.ReplyCancel

    wow, this is genius! cannot way to try it :DReplyCancel

  • Anya26/04/2017 - 3:07 pm

    What a great idea. I’m going to have to get my hands on this book. I love their blog, so much good stuff there. Thank you for sharing this recipe Laura :)ReplyCancel

    • Laura26/04/2017 - 3:56 pm

      It’s a very special collection. I think you would really love it, Anya :)

  • This is GENIUS. I love nut milk, but it always makes me feel guilty for all the reasons you mentioned, but especially because of the non-sustainable water practices a lot of nut milk manufacturers use. I love that this recipe uses every part of the nut in an absolutely delicious way–and how perfect that it makes a complete meal, too? Milk & cereal & no waste: the makings of a good morning. :) For sure want to check this cookbook and Greenhouse Juice out!ReplyCancel

    Leftover nut pulp sounds like it would be the perfect texture for granola. What a great idea!ReplyCancel

  • Andrea29/04/2017 - 9:51 am

    I’m definitely making this! Another use for the pulp – don’t squeeze it out so completely so it is still moist and put on top of fruit salad. Delicious and adds protein so makes a great breakfast.ReplyCancel

  • Kimberley01/05/2017 - 12:31 am

    Best idea ever!! Love this.ReplyCancel

    • Laura07/06/2017 - 9:00 pm

      Yes the damp/wet pulp! You want to squeeze out as much milk as you can, but yes take it right out of the nut milk bag/cheesecloth and proceed with the recipe.

  • Aiden01/10/2017 - 3:04 pm

    Hey Laura,

    I’m going to try this in a few days and this post actually inspired me to buy The Greenhouse Cookbook which has been really excellent.

    I’m just wondering, as a fellow Ontarian, where do you get the large shreds of coconut? I can only ever seem to find fine shreds!



    • Laura03/10/2017 - 7:28 pm

      I order the large shreds online typically, but I have been lucky enough to find large lots of them at HomeSense here and there!

The double double earl grey latte (aka the best earl grey latte ever) - The First Messpin it!
I know that elixirs with all kinds of weird and wonderful powders are very much the movement du jour (and I love them!), but you can’t deny that one of the OG non-coffee cozy drinks is the earl grey latte. I find the quality of this drink varies significantly from place to place, especially when non-dairy milk is in the mix. I have a simple and streamlined version in my book that I love, but I can never help tinkering a bit. I like heavy vanilla warmth in my earl grey lattes, and detectable bergamot is also key. I doubled up both components in this version and it’s pretty much perfect for my taste. We’ve had so much rain lately, and one of these with a sweet bite in the afternoon is just the thing to make the best of it. View full post »

    I remember my first “london fog” so clearly! I was in high school and it was a rainy spring day.

    Hi Laura,

    I had fabulous success with yet another one of your recipes this weekend. The Banana Scones from your cookbook are heavenly. Thank you :)

    I am wondering what cookies you have pictured with your tea?


    • Laura24/04/2017 - 8:21 pm

      Hi Callie!

      So happy that you enjoyed the banana bread scones from the book :)

      These cookies are the chocolate chunk cookies from Jessica Murnane’s “One Part Plant” cookbook. It’s my favourite cookie recipe of all time–plus the rest of the book is pretty great.


  • Caras Kitchen26/04/2017 - 12:42 am

    So many great links- I cant wait to read Renee’s. Also earl grey is my fav tea by far. I am not sure if you drink alcohol but it is damn good with a nice vodka and a little simple syrup for a delicious cocktail. xoReplyCancel

  • Maria26/04/2017 - 5:24 pm

    This looks wonderful. Great idea to use fresh ramps. We’ve got a backyard full of them. We’ve made a similar warm potato salad using arugula so why not ramps. Thanks for the idea.ReplyCancel

  • Kelsey @ Appeasing a Food Geek19/04/2017 - 7:08 am

    This salad screams spring to me, so I’m extremely excited to try it! I’m dying to get my hands on some ramps, but nothing yet. I’m hoping I can find some before the month is over and they disappear…Also thanks for the GRAIN rec–I’ll have to give them a try. xoxoReplyCancel

  • Pia19/04/2017 - 7:47 am

    Wow. This salad looks gorgeous, Laura, and I feel as though you’ve really outdone yourself with these photographs. I mean, don’t get me wrong, your images are always on point, but the lighting in these/ the way in which you captured that beautiful sunlight kind of takes things to a whole new level -I’m seriously swooning over here *insert heart-eyed emoji*ReplyCancel

    • Laura19/04/2017 - 11:04 am

      Hi Ally,
      You could do green beans, bell pepper strips, or even little stick-like cuts of zucchini in place of the asparagus.

  • Karen19/04/2017 - 9:19 am

    Hey Laura,

    Just wanted to pop in to tell you how much I’ve been enjoying your curried tempeh patties lately…they are so flavorful and simple and foolproof (reliably adhering into patties) and incredibly versatile. I’ve been freezing a batch weekly for quick lunches and afternoon snacks. My new favorite ‘burger’ of the season!


  • christine19/04/2017 - 9:39 am

    This is one super pretty potato salad! I’m so impressed by your foraging skills. I always shy away from bringing anything home with me in fear that it’s not what I think it is! I was actually thinking I’d sign up for a foraging walk/workshop with an herbalist I know to help me learn enough to feel comfortable. I’ve seen ramps at the market before, but never (knowingly, at least) during hikes around here. Maybe someday :)ReplyCancel

  • Valentina | The Blue Bride19/04/2017 - 11:12 am

    This salad looks so gorgeous! I think I’ve never tried ramps, but I’ll totally look for them asap ^_^ReplyCancel

  • michelle19/04/2017 - 11:56 am

    OMG RAMPS. But seriously, what a beautiful salad. I feel like some green garlic once its in the market could also be a delicious stand in. So excited for spring and welcoming each new vegetable.ReplyCancel

  • Marta | Naturalmente buono19/04/2017 - 12:48 pm

    Looks like it’s kinda of potato salad season! Just posted a new potato salad on my blog which, like yours, has za’atar and dill in it. Amazing! Also, made the same consideration about salt: I found myself adding lotsa salt in mine and wondering if it was just me. So glad I’m apparently not a salt monster.
    Anyway, I love roasted potatoes, especially if paired with asparagus and a mustard dressing like yours. Totally going to try this salad this weekend, with green onions instead of ramps since I’m not able to find them here.
    Always thanks for inspiration, xo MartaReplyCancel

  • Jennifer19/04/2017 - 9:10 pm

    This looks delicious, but I do not like mustard. Do you have a suggestion for a replacement in the dressing? I bump up against this in a lot of yummy looking recipes.ReplyCancel

    • Laura20/04/2017 - 8:15 am

      Hi Jennifer,
      The mustard is there for flavour, but also as an emulsifier for the dressing. With that in mind, you could replace it with 1-2 teaspoons of regular/vegan mayonnaise if you wish. I’ve also heard of people using potato starch as a thickener for vinaigrettes/dressings. The flavour will be totally different though. If you’re indifferent to the texture of the dressing, you could replace the mustard with the same amount of prepared horseradish, minced capers, minced garlic, or anything else that is slightly sharp in flavour.

  • Jodi21/04/2017 - 7:40 am

    You had me at potatoes. But then you had my heart when you spoke about foraging. Take only what you need – leave the forest as you found it – or better! There is an enormous amount of respect that should be paid in the woods, so happy you talked about that here. I’ve bookmarked that potato salad from your cookbook for summer picnics, I’m always sure to find a little inspiration here. Thank you, Laura! xReplyCancel

    I just made this tonight and it was delicious. I subbed broccoli and green beans for the asparagus as my 15 year old is not a huge asparagus lover.

    Hello, Laura — made the salad last night for dinner. I didn’t have watermelon radishes and used just regular red once and their greens. So delicious, there was one with no leftover for lunch!

Hot Pink Beet Protein Smoothie from The First Mess Cookbookpin it!
Popping in so quick today! The First Mess Cookbook is finally out, and while I know that you guys may be experiencing some book news-related fatigue, I’m just happy that it’s making its way out to so many of you. I gush about how grateful I am for your support as often as I can, but I can always gush a little more: Thank you so much. I love seeing what you’re making, so please feel free to tag me on Instagram and use our official hashtag too: #FirstMessCookbook.

I’m sharing the Hot Pink Beet Protein Smoothie because 1) it’s hot pink, and 2) I actually drink this all the time! I love that it isn’t too sweet and that it capitalizes on a cellar-hardy vegetable like beets. Throw in some citrus, almond butter, frozen summer berries, a sprinkle of chia, and you’ve got an energizing blend that’s really fun to look at ;) I know the combination sounds a little offbeat at first glance, but that earthy sweetness is so right with the other tart and rich components here.

  • Meghan08/03/2017 - 1:31 pm

    Congratulations on the book! I’m so excited to make a trip over to Powell’s here in PDX to grab a copy in the next week or so (and I’m not even a veggie cook!) Everything from it looks so amazing.

    (This post actually gave me a giggle because I had JUST settled onto the couch with a beet-berry-ginger smoothie and was checking around the food blog circuit.)

    Also! I just made a version of your granola bars from the post over at Flourishing Foodie. I realized halfway through the process that I was out of brown rice syrup, so I used blackstrap molasses, added a few spices, and wham-bam I had some ginger molasses “cookie” granola bars. They are stellar! (Despite the fact I was terrified of how tahini and molasses might taste together…)

    Laura! Seeing your amazing book, recipes, and mentions thereof all over the world wide web seriously brings much such joy, and I am honestly just so so happy for you. Congrats once again (for, like, the 10th time…) :) and of course, thanks for sharing this vibrant, and indeed very interesting sounding, smoothie with us xReplyCancel

    Hi Laura…I was so happy to finally receive your book in the mail. I preordered in July! It is absolutely stunning. Now I can read all the other bloggers posts with your recipes– I didn’t want to ruin it and feel like I’d seen half the recipes already. :) Congratulations!ReplyCancel

    Yahoo! I know the plant-coveting world has been waiting YEARS for this beauty to come to life. It has quickly become a staple in my lil kitchen for reading + inspiration. Congrats Laura!ReplyCancel

    I love this smoothie! Gorgeous and deep and nourishing and delicious. And I love that I got to walk through the past year by your side with the wildness of all things book. THE FIRST MESS is stunning, and it’s an absolute honor to know and celebrate you in every way.ReplyCancel

    I received your cookbook as a gift from my Momma. She pre-ordered it for her and I and I got my copy on Tuesday. I cannot wait to get into the kitchen this weekend. I have spent the last two nights before bed going through the book and I am blown away! It is so stunning and inspiring. Congrats!ReplyCancel

    I haven’t been this excited over a cookbook in a long time (nor have I ever actually pre-ordered one)! Though I haven’t made my way through all of it yet, what I have seen has my mouth watering and eager to get into the kitchen. I made the plant-powered protein pancakes this morning and they were amazing!! I’m making a note to get some citrus at the market this weekend so I can try out this pink stunner of a smoothie. Congrats again on such an amazing tome of plant-based beauty!ReplyCancel

    A huge Congratz Laura! The first thing I’ll make from your book will be the broccoli Ceasar, for sure!ReplyCancel

    We’ve been working our way through recipes pretty regularly since I picked up your cookbook. I keep coming back to this smoothie though – a perfect pre-gym snack!ReplyCancel

    Hi Laura, I read your cookbook cover to cover. Love ❤️! My parents owned a restaurant. I appreciate your culinary-vibe. I’ll be riffing on your root veggie dal The addition of celery root is genius. I’m also going to give the deep immune soup a whirl. I want to try your crepes, pumpkin mousse and chocolate chunk ginger cookies. The simple addition of celery salt on avo-toast is a good idea. I sprinkle homemade sesame-salt (gomashio) on mine. Your pancake recipes look amazing too. Thank you!ReplyCancel
