Hummus Pesto Bruschetta Dip

This was requested by my bestie Dakota for Galentine’s night and I’m so glad she introduced me to this combo. It’s such a perfect combination of flavors. She usually buys it but to make the vegan pesto I decided to make it. I served it with toasted sliced baguettes and pita crackers. It was a…

Tofu Curry Ramen Bowl

I’ve seen a few pictures in instagram of a curry noodle bowl and it’s been looking so tempting so I decided to make one for myself. I threw in whatever I thought would be good in this and it was so tasty. It brought some of my favorites together in one bowl; crispy tofu, ramen,…

Meal Planning 2.11.19

It’s Valentine’s week! I’m so excited to celebrate all of the people I love and take the time to acknowledge it. I know we should always let everyone we know how much we love them, and I try to, but it’s nice to have a reminder to go above and beyond what we usually do…

3 Layer Mexican Dip

For Super Bowl I made this 3 Layer Mexican Dip for Josh and I and it was so tasty! Its so easy you can make it in 5 minutes! I got all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s so it’s a one stop shop. You just need a can of the Fat Free Refried Beans,…

Creamy Sharp Vegan Mac n Cheeze

Mac n Cheese has always been one of my favorites ever since I was little and ordered it all of the time. It continued to make me sick though so I became wary of eating it. Now that I can make a vegan version it’s game on with no fear! What a freeing feeling. I…

I made this delicious Vegan Cinnamon swirl cake from Vegan Richa on Saturday and it was such a tasty treat! It has common ingredients that I already had in my pantry and I whipped it up in my kitchen aid in about 4 minutes. You make a simple vegan vanilla cake and layer it with…

Doesn’t a clean pantry just set you up for success in the kitchen? I was so excited to order containers from amazon and organize everything in my pantry so it would be easy to find and so glad I did it. It forced me to go through everything and throw out anything that was expired…

Super Bowl Meal Planning

Before I indulge in all of the finger foods I’m planning on making today, I started the day off right with a delicious nice cream bowl. This has been my favorite kind because it gets so fluffy and light. I’m not sure if it’s from the packet of JuicePlus powder or the combination of fruit…

BBQ Tempeh Pizza

I never get tired of pizza! We usually make regular Italian style pizza with marinara, but I thought it was time to spice it up. I thought about making this pizza last week and thought it would be a great way to use tempeh. Tempeh is fermented soybeans so some people think it’s easier to…

Hearty 3 Bean Chili

This is from the Minimalist Baker cookbook and it looked interesting because I’ve never thought about using sweet potatoes in a chili. I tried it out and it’s so tasty! They don’t give the chili a sweet flavor, but more complexity and texture. It wasn’t super spicy which is good for Josh, but if you…

Meal Planning 1.27.19

This past week, I threw together meals mostly with leftovers because Josh has been away and I haven’t been making gourmet meals nightly. We went to Keystone over the MLK weekend and had a blast tubing and playing in the snow. There wasn’t very many vegan options there so it was tough. I didn’t feel…

Spinach and Artichoke Pasta

Everyone loves spinach and artichoke dip because it’s creamy, flavorful, and you feel semi healthy eating greens in form of a dip. Spinach and artichokes are such a popular pair, so why not enjoy them in pasta which is also a popular favorite. Delicious! I found this recipe and Pinterest and it’s so creamy and…

Crispy Tofu Fried Rice

I made this the night before we left to go to Denver because I knew I’d be busy packing and cleaning and wouldn’t want to make a fancy dinner. This comes together quickly once you have all of the ingredients ready. It’s one of our favorites because it’s fast, no oil, and so tasty! You…

Crispy Orange Chili Tofu

This was right up my alley because I LOVE Chinese food and lately I’ve been loving crispy tofu. I love the texture, crispy on the outside and slightly chewy in the inside, and love that it takes on any flavor. I found this recipe in the Bosh cookbook I got for Christmas and wanted to…

Burrito Bowl Night

My team from school came over last week for Burrito Bowl and Game Night and we had so much fun! Burrito bowls are the perfect meal to serve for a crowd because you can pre-make all of the ingredients and have it ready to go when they arrive and then they arrange it themselves. They…

Butternut Squash+Kale+ Quinoa Bake

I found this recipe in my new Minimalist Baker cookbook and it fit the bill for being part of a whole food plant based dinner. We don’t have quinoa very much, but we should because did you know it was a complete protein? Quinoa and kale are some of the most healthy things we can…

Creamy Lasagna Soup

This is a recipe from @Rabbitsandwolves blog and it looked so delicious! I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while and made it this week. The recipe is pretty simple actually and didn’t need many ingredients. I cut the amount of cashews in half just to lessen the amount of fat, but it…

Vegan Chocolate Brownie cookies

I made these chocolate cookies for my mother in laws birthday party on New Year’s Day and we enjoyed a few on New Year’s Eve when I baked them while waiting for the ball to drop. I found the recipe on one of my favorite vegan blogs and she makes the best desserts. It’s Chocolate…

Portobello Burgers and Fries

If you’re craving the flavor of a burger and fries, but want something whole foods plant based then this might do the trick! Portobellos are a great source of protein, vitamin d, and have a meaty texture that make a great burger replacement. They also soak up any flavor you add to them so it’s…

Tasty Minestrone

This Minestrone was perfect for right after Christmas because we wanted something warming and light after nights of heavy food. I love soups because you just put whatever you like in and then it’s ready before you know it! Also there’s so many varieties you can make and they never get old. Plus it makes…
