Vegan Chickpea Pot Pie Soup and Biscuits

Anyone else need some comfort food right about now? While we wait for the election numbers, I’m having some leftover soup from last night and it’s a healthy version of comfort food. The old me would have just heated up a Marie Calendar’s frozen pot pie and called it a day, but those are terrible…

Vegan Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle

Making donuts is as simple as baking muffins, just a different shaped pan, but they’re so much more fun for some reason. These are super easy because I used Trader Joe’s box of pumpkin bread and muffin mix, which I buy every time I go during the fall because it’s so handy to have on…

Portobello Gyro Bowl

Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry, I’ve been a little busy having a baby during a pandemic. We had Hayden on February 8th, then everything seemed to fall apart. Luckily, we quarantined at the beach with my parents and it was a God send. Things are much better now and I’m loving being…

Creamy Vegan Sausage and Tortellini

I’ve been waiting to try the Kitehill vegan tortellini for ages, and I finally ordered them from Whole Foods last week as a quick dinner idea. They’re stuffed with almond milk ricotta and we’re really close to traditional tortellini. Same texture and very similar flavor. We had some vegan sausage from the cookout the night…

Mexican Pinwheels

Who doesn’t need to get their creative juices flowing right now? After 8 weeks at the beach, we returned home and we’re still getting organized. We got a few orders from Instacart, but the temptation pulling me in to Trader Joe’s after three months of not going was too strong. I haven’t been since Hayden…

Vegan Apple and Cherry Slab Pie

Thanksgiving is here again and it’s our third vegan Thanksgiving! I haven’t posted much lately because pregnancy doesn’t exactly bring out your best cooking or blogging skills. All I’ve been wanting to do is eat what sounds good at that minute and it’s usually not interesting enough to write a post about! Now that it’s…

Veggie Noodle Stir Fry with Scrambled Tofu

Who doesn’t love a good noodle stir fry? I have a million of these recipes on here, but this time I used tofu scramble instead of cubed and baked to mimic the usual scrambled egg in stir fries. It was really tasty and blended in more with the dish so you weren’t getting cubes, but…

Crispy Tofu Tacos

These tacos were amazing! You use crumbled tofu that’s seasoned in taco spices and bake it until it’s brown and crispy then use it as taco filling, yum! I also used leftover brown rice and made Mexican rice and then topped with our favorite toppings. I always put the corn tortillas in my toaster oven…

BBQ Chickpea Spinach Burgers

I wanted to make a simple chickpea burger recipe so I based it off of my chickpea ball recipe and then threw in some other things to make these tasty burgers that actually hold together really well! They’re firm, healthy, oil free, and really good! Josh said it was one of the better burgers we…

Eggplant, Mushroom, and Beefless Crumbles Baked Pizza

We made this tasty vegan pizza while at the beach and it was so good! It’s easy to make homemade pizza and it still gets a crispy crunchy crust from the oven at a high temperature. I love eggplant and mushrooms on pizza, but I’ve never had the Gardein crumbles on pizza before. If you…

Improved Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

I’ve made a lentil shepherd’s pie once before and when Josh named it as one of his top meals I’ve made I wanted to make it again last week. This time I wanted to make it even better than last time and I really think it was! The lentil mixture is so savory, believe me…

Creamy Mac n Veggies

I’m always down for a veggie Mac n cheeze, so when I saw this recipe on Instagram by @alexfuellednaturally I wanted to give it a try. I’ve never used white beans in the sauce before and it was really tasty! It still uses carrots and potatoes as well, and plant based milk and spices that…

Meal Planning 6.10.19

Above- One of this week’s lunches: romaine filled with homemade buffalo hummus, cucumber, carrots, tomato, onion, and avocado with a side of watermelon and tamari rice crackers. Hi everyone! I’m trying to soak up every free moment of my summer and last week I really made an effort to eat as many whole foods as…

Balsamic Veggie CousCous Salad with Vegan Feta

This CousCous Salad brings all the tang of a Mediterranean meal and it’s perfect for a light dinner or simple lunch. It’s a few ingredients that come together and it’s a perfect combination. Pasta pearls with roasted veggies, and a zesty tofu feta that brings it all together in a balsamic dressing. It’s really easy…

Grilling Feast!

For Memorial Day this year we decided to grill out at the beach with family and came up with a menu. We made burgers, regular and beyond meat, BBQ tofu, Dilly Tofu Potato Salad, BBQ veggie kabobs, and leftover bean salad. It was so much food and we still have loads leftover, but it was…

Vegan French Toast 2

Starting our Memorial Day off right with this delicious cinnamon raisin French toast! It’s not soggy in the middle like some French toast, and it was a crunchy crust that makes it extra scrumptious. It’s dairy and egg free so healthier than traditional French toast and it’s the perfect crowd pleaser because it doesn’t take…

Roasted Chickpea and Potato Salad

Need a summer salad idea that will slim you down and still fill you up? This salad is filling from the protein and starch from the chickpeas and potatoes and the dressing on this salad tastes just like Chick-fil-A sauce, I swear! It’s delicious and easy to meal prep for the week. Just roast the…

Meal Planning 5.18.19

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t left a weekly meal plan in a while, it’s been busy the past few weekends. I sat down yesterday and planned out the dinners for this week before we go to the beach. It’s the last week of school so I planned some fast and easy meals because I know…

Creamy Marsala Baked Gnocchi

This tasty gnocchi is covered in a creamy Marsala type sauce with kale and baked in a casserole dish until bubbly, so what could be wrong? This was actually a mistake which turned out. I had my bestie test it and she’s the one who said it reminded her of a Marsala sauce, and she’s…

Curry Hummus

Sick of regular hummus and need a hummus alternative? I love hummus and bring it to almost every event, plus it’s super easy and cheap to make yourself. Also, the possibilities are endless on flavor options. This time I decided to make a curry flavor and I’m so glad I figured out how to make…
