Gratin Dauphinois recipe


– 10 red potatoes (firm and moist with a smooth texture)
– 1 cup coconut cream (unsweetened)
– 3/4 to 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk ( I used unsweetened almond milk – no vanilla or any other flavor)
– 1 onion, finely sliced
– 6 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 heaped tablespoons arrowroot (you can also use cornstarch)
– 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional – you can use about 3 tbsp of water instead – to stir-fry the onions)
– 1 Vegetable bouillon cube (optional)
– Salt and pepper to taste


1 – Preheat the oven to 410 F.
2- Slice the potatoes very thinly. I use a mandoline to save time and I slice them to 3 mm. You can also use a food processor or simply by hand.
3 – Spread the sliced potatoes in a large baking dish.
4 – In a saucepan, add the oil (or the water), the sliced onions, garlic and cook at medium heat for about 6 minutes (stir frequently). Until soft and slightly translucent
5 – In a large bowl, add the plant-based milk and the arrowroot and whisk vigorously to combine.
6 – Once the onions are soft and translucent, add in the milk mixture along with the nutritional yeast, the vegetable bouillon cube, salt and pepper. Bring it to boil then turn the heat to low.
7 – Cook for 5 more minutes until the sauce has thickened. STIR FREQUENTLY.
8 – Pour the sauce over the sliced potatoes in the baking dish.
9 – cover the baking dish with baking paper or tin foil and bake for 30 minutes at 420 F.
10 – Take off the baking paper/ foil and bake for another 30 minutes at 420F this time. You know it’s ready when the top get crispy and golden brown.

We like to have it with steamed veggies like broccoli and green beans.

Creamy Oatmeal


1 cup rolled oat ( I use the organic old fashioned rolled oats by Bob’s Red Mill)
2 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons maple syrup to sweeten (optional)

Toppings (optional)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon Almond butter or any nut butter of your choice
A handful Frozen wild blueberries (or any other fresh or frozen fruits you like)


Bring water and salt to a boil. Add rolled oat and reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Then add the almond milk and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and let stand for 2 minutes before serving. Add the toppings and enjoy!

Vegan, Gluten-free, oil-free pancakes


– 1 ripe banana
– 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
– 1 cup rolled oats
– 2 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
– 1 teaspoon baking powder

Toppings of your choice. Our favorites are fresh or frozen blueberries and maple syrup.


– Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. (We use healthy ceramic nonstick cookware by the brand Greenlife)
– Once hot, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. If you find it hard to get a round shape with the method I use in this video, you can also use a squeezable bottle to pour the batter onto the skillet.
– Carefully flip the pancake and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes.
Add your toppings and enjoy!!

  24. Hello Sistah Fabiola — Greeting to your lovely family from what I see w/in these videos peeking into your HEALTHY LIFE STYLE!! I will be preparing these vegetarian healthy recipes to show some love to my temple which I've neglected way too long. To be honest hearing the sad news about the legendary film producer John Singleton today. Along w/recently as of yesterday due to a doctors visit discussing my obesity. It is time for a healthy & loving change regarding my weight & what content I put into my temple!!! John Singleton was putting on lots of weight as I have & it has noticeable. I do believe weight played a part unfortunately in his demise. It is a welcomed pleasure to see a healthy family showing others that we can participate w/preparing delicious while healthy, nutritious food. I vouch as of today that a year from now I will be in a healthier place……pounds will be off of my frame! I will look forward to learning how to prepare healthy good cuisine to stuff my face with because I enjoy good food. Especially healthy choices while learning new recipes. BTW your adorable daughter is smart & it's cool to see her participate in preparing her meals. I've noticed that when children cook w/their parents they eat what they prepare & are very conscious of what goes into their mouths. Your daughter really is into cooking it's a cool process to watch! Clearly, this gift of teaching her how to be a serious little chef SMILE. Learning it from you parents will carry her through life & benefit her many ways. PEACE
