Tomorrow, most of America will be gathering at cookouts, potlucks, family dinner tables, and other social occasions. If you plan on celebrating the 4th, why not celebrate it with some delicious, healthy, and cruelty free fare? Here are my favorite recipes for summer partying:

1) Ginger Lime Edamame Sweet Potato Burgers

For the sesame noodles, do you use minced ginger or ginger powder? It sounds like a great recipe to make for my fiancee’s parents when we visit them next week!

Wow, thanks for the trip down memory lane, Gena!

Zesty Orange Cashew Cheese & the Jicama slaw (last recipe)…totally forgot about those and wanted to make them way back when, thanks for the reminder.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday! First one in the nation’s capital for you…fun! :)

Hey Gena, making your fig bars right now and I noticed the ingredients say baking soda but the instructions say powder. I’m going with soda and hoping it works!

I made your millet/kale burgers a while back and while they were pretty yummy-they took forever to make! There were so many steps, but I guess practice will make it easier.

Thanks Gena! I am hosting a big un-bbq at my house and serving 4 different kinfs of veggie burgers that I have never made before. Should be a riot! Have a great 4th!

Mmm, a spread like that would be heaven! In case you don’t know, one of the best places in DC to view fireworks but avoid the insane crowds is up 18th St & California. And if you walk 6-7 blocks north of there, you can check out Amsterdam Falafelshop! Ah, I so miss DC, especially in summertime!
