Happy Wednesday!
Today I have a very special guest, Richa, from the blog  Vegan Richa. I could say all kinds of things about Richa’s ridiculous talent – her sixth sense for combining unique flavors, her mouth-watering food photography, her constant and inspiring creativity – but you already know all that…at least you should. What I really want to highlight is Richa’s huge, huge heart.  When I first discovered her blog in 2012 I picked up on this girl’s unique love for people, animals, and all living things. When meeting her in person last year it was confirmed that she is, indeed, genuinely kind and compassionate. At the end of last year she release of her first ebook, Diwali Sweets, a delicious book of traditional India desserts with gorgeous photos. She and her husband matched and donated 100% the proceeds from the book to animal rescue organizations.  Richa really is quite something and I am truly honored to have such a special friend here today. 
Keep up with Richa through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Thank you having me over Sarah. Hope you are having a wonderful time with Eden and Nash!

Today, I am bringing a delicious and simple frittata. No soy, no tofu, just beans, broccolini, spices and herbs. Serve it warm with a generous drizzle of Sriracha or a creamy cool ranch or both. Or slice up and make Sammishes.

It makes a great breakfast or even a meal. There is Broccolini, carrots and sun-dried tomato in it. Add more or less veggies to preference. The white beans are spiced up with thyme and lemon. The base is chickpea flour batter. Mix it all up, and bake and done.
