Chef Chloe Coscarelli is stopping by the TODAY kitchen to share a few of her favorite vegan recipes from her new cookbook "Chloe Flavor: Saucy, Crispy, Spicy, Vegan."

She shows us how to make a healthy and healing soup filled with leafy greens, sweet and savory crispy cauliflower "wings" and garlic bread topped with creamy spinach and artichoke spread.

Healing Cream of Greens Soup

This is the perfect soup to make when you feel like you're getting sick. The greens are packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants that will have you on the mend in no time.

Apricot-Sesame Cauliflower 'Wings'

This is my go-to appetizer recipe for Super Bowl parties, potlucks or game nights. My friends and family request it all the time now. It's kind of like a fusion of Buffalo chicken wings and orange chicken, so it's a mega crowd-pleaser. If you don't like sweet food, this might not be the app for you. I, on the other hand, would prefer that all my savory food borders on the dessert cutoff, so I'm pretty much addicted to the sweet, sticky glaze that coats these wings.

Artichoke Basille's Pizza is a popular chain in New York City whose specialty is putting spinach-artichoke dip on pizza. I’ve never tried it because it’s not vegan, but I was certainly interested in the idea of warm, creamy artichoke on piping-hot dough. It inspired me to create this hybrid between spinach-artichoke dip and garlic bread, and I probably won’t go back to regular garlic bread again. I make this whenever I’m having a large dinner party; everyone always clamors for more.
