Get outside for the last enjoyable parts of summer! Chef V founder Veronica Wheat created this BBQ Salmon recipe as the main course of a special outdoor meal for her husband Brandon.
Have an acai bowl -The acai berry is a grape-like fruit native to the rain forests of the amazon. It has a tropical, sweet taste and a very short shelf life, so we don’t often find them fresh in the store. Acai berries contain antioxidants, fiber, and heart-healthy fats.
Cool and creamy, soups are a great way to start a meal, but are also awesome as a meal. You can easily double or triple my recipe and have delicious leftovers.
I like to make this guacamole for the holidays – so pretty and festive! Chef V tip: save the pit and keep it in the mixture to keep the guacamole from turning brown.
Grilled artichokes, precooked and finished at the picnic. They’ll love these on the barbecue. Serve with my two vegan sauces: Raw Horseradish Mayonnaise, and Vegan Herb Aioli.
Sometimes you just need a luscious rich tasting spread – so I created this cashew-based mayo. Way to prepare, you can use it in dressings, dips, on a sandwich, anywhere you want that mayonnaise experience – only healthier. Add raw horseradish to make a zippy dip for my Grilled Artichokes. – Veronica
Aioli, a traditional Mediterranean sauce, is just right for dipping veggies or drizzling over toasted baguette. It makes a delicious accompaniment to my Grilled Artichokes. – Veronica
This makes a lot of cupcakes so I keep them in a bag I frosted in the fridge. Pop one out and place in microwave and then top with frosting when done. These are great to have in the house for a delightful yet healthy treat when you have a sweet tooth.
Mandarin Asian Salad – You can use lots of different greens to make this Asian inspired salad but I always include cabbage. If you are cleansing, just skip the mandarin oranges to keep it cleanse friendly.
Too much dairy can be bad for digestion, especially for kids, which is why more people are choosing to limit their intake or eliminate it completely from their diets. Here’s a creamy and delicious mock milkshake recipe that will please your taste buds and your tummy! – Veronica

Almond Flour Crusted Chicken – This is a new recipe I created recently that uses crushed almond flour crackers and is served with a honey mustard sauce. It makes a delicious main course, accompanied by my Mandarin Asian Salad.
This Sloppy Joes recipe uses my tomato-less bbq sauce. Serve with my creamy coleslaw and a gluten-free bun. Did you know the sandwich probably originated in Sioux City, Iowa in the 1930s. According to legend, the “loose meat sandwich” was created by a cook named Joe. My version is made with ground turkey and my tomato-less BBQ sauce.
Nightshades tend to cause inflammation in the body. Tomatoes are in lots of yummy sauces like ketchup, BBQ sauce and marinara. These sauces can cause inflammation in the body and discomfort.

This coleslaw recipe goes well with my BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich, my Pulled Chicken Sandwich, and my Sloppy Joes Sandwich.
