Q: Any food secrets?

A: Putting salad dressing on my roasted vegetables—it gives them such a tangy flavor!

Q: Any baking tips you swear by?

A: I’ve been really lucky with baking. Most things turn out. I think it’s about eyeing the batter before you put in the oven—if it seems clumpy or thin, chances are you need to add a little bit more to make it even. With cookies, I undercook them by a minute and let them cool down on the pan they came out in.

Q: What are your favorite smoothie ingredients?

A: Aside from bananas? I would say spinach and avocados. I also like adding powders, like maca and protein powder.

Q: Favorite ingredients for burgers?

A: Chickpeas. I love them in hummus, in falafels, in curries—they’re so easy and versatile!

Q: Your last food discovery? Ingredients or tips?

A: My last discovery? Blue-green spirulina! It’s been making magic in my smoothie bowl! Also, I’ve been adding soaked cashews and tahini into my smoothies for extra creaminess.
