Black Bean Taco Salad

Vegans just eat salad, right? Uhhh nope. I have to remind myself to make some meal salads every once in a while! I follow a couple that eats a large salad before every meal to get their fill of veggies and become semi full before their starch based meal. I just couldn’t eat that much…

Baked Mushroom Tetrazzini

My mom used to make tetrazzini and I always loved it, so I was excited to find a mushroom tetrazzini recipe on Pinterest. At first I found one for the instant pot, but I don’t have one so I found another by Rabbitandwolves. I made it oil free by taking out the butter and olive…

Roasted Veggie Buddha Plate with Creamy Curry Sauce

Have tons of veggies left in your fridge that you need to use? This is the dish for you! I wanted to use last week’s produce up and decided to roast it all and make a meal out of it. Just chop veggies, cook them up with chickpeas, and then make a sauce to tie…

Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta

I made this amazing creamy tomato basil pasta last night and it was so easy to throw together and was such a satisfying meal. Bow ties might be my favorite pasta shape… they’re so cute and fun! I added spinach and mushrooms to the sauce for extra veggies, and I was planning on adding zucchini…

Tofu Lettuce Wraps

I made a version of these tofu lettuce wraps for New Year’s Eve and I really enjoyed them, so I ended up making them this week when my bestie came over for dinner. They’re so tasty! Crispy cubes of tofu and veggies tossed in a sweet and savory sauce on a bed rice noodles inside…

Creamy Mushroom Asparagus Rice

Well, it was supposed to be risotto but who thought the basmati we had in the same container was aborrio? Me. So it was still delicious, creamy, flavorful, and filling but not technically risotto. It comes together in about 20-25 minutes so it’s faster than risotto and still has such great flavor from the mushrooms…

Black Bean & Cheeze Quesadillas

I haven’t had a good quesadilla since going vegan and when I saw a vegan quesadilla on Instagram I knew it was something I wanted to try out. I’ve been making vegan cheeze made from veggies and cashews that we’ve been liking and it’s healthy and oil free. I thought it would be perfect for…

Mushroom Bolognese

Pasta is up in my top 5 favorite foods because it’s so versatile, filling, comforting, and it takes a lot for me to get tired of it. It’s cheap and can feed a family for about a dollar! It’s my perfect base. I try to limit it to about once or twice a week for…

Happy Saturday everyone! We’re enjoying part of my week off at the beach and it’s another super foggy day so I just took the time to meal plan for the next TWO weeks! I have the time so why not? Well usually I don’t because by the next week I’ll be wanting certain things and…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

Shepherd’s Potatoes

This is a recipe from the Bosh cookbook that I tried last week and they were really tasty! It’s a mix between shepherd’s pie and a twice baked potato and they’re filled with a lentil gravy mixture. They were savory, filling, and felt like a really hearty meal. They’re also visually appetizing and would be…

Untraditional Vegetable Pad Thai

Well I was planning on making Bosh’s recipe for pad thai and when I looked in my fridge by the end of the week I didn’t have any of the ingredients for it! I decided to make up my own recipe for it and it ended up being pretty tasty! Pad thai usually has tofu…

Vegan Waffles

When I made my blueberry pancakes last weekend, I found my waffle maker sitting on top of my griddle so it made me want to use it. I’ve probably only used it a handful of times since we got it for our wedding, and I usually use it to make oil free hash browns. Since…
