What is Pickles & Honey?

Pickles & Honey is a vegan recipe blog that can best be described in one word: essentialist. This is how we strive to live our lives and it carries over to what we create in the kitchen.

In this space, we take favorite seasonal recipes and simplify them to the essentials, always with a plant-based twist. Most include just ten ingredients or less, minimal kitchen equipment, and a few minutes of active prep work. We want recipes to be easy, approachable, and practical. We truly believe that awesome food need not be complicated, expensive, or require a big time commitment.

We hope you find this approach to food as liberating and exciting as we do.

If you give any of our recipes a try, let us know! Leave a comment or tag an Instagram photo #picklesnhoney so we can see. We promise you will make our day.
