BBQ Jackfruit & Quinoa Wrap

Another piece of proof that vegan food isn’t boring… it’s colorful, flavorful, healthy, and you can be creative with so many ingredients to choose from. Imagine, BBQ without hurting a pig or cow and you get the same flavor. I discovered jackfruit a few months ago and it’s amazing to me how a fruit can…

Father’s Day Vegan BBQ Feast

I’m a little late, but luckily I had a day full of hanging out with friends yesterday so I didn’t have time to blog about Father’s Day yet. For Father’s Day this year my family came over to our house for a Father’s Day Vegan BBQ Feast! I was really excited to prepare some dishes…

Creamy Mushroom and Pea Risotto

Recipe here-https://www.cearaskitchen.com/vegan-mushroom-risotto-healthy-glutenfree/ This creamy vegan mushroom risotto was amazing! I thought it would be hard to make a flavorful and creamy risotto without cheese, but apparently it’s very doable with wine, garlic, herbs de Provence, and a cashew cream. The first vegan meal I ever made about a year ago was a mushroom risotto and…

Fiesta Mango Black Bean Salad with Chili Lime Dressing

This fresh, flavorful, and colorful salad is perfect for summer! It’s filling from the quinoa and beans and makes you feel like you’re eating the rainbow. There are so many delicious ingredients in one bowl for the perfect dinner salad and I made a light and low-calorie dressing to match. The dressing is made of…

My Vegan Fridge

Since I had leftover falafel last night, I thought I would write a post giving you some insider views of what I usually have in our house food-wise. This was taken right when I got back from Trader Joe’s so it was stocked for the week and I had enough for 6 meals. This is…

Veggie Pad-oh my! Pad-Thai

Summer thunderstorm blowing outside and a big bowl of tasty noodles in my lap… and now waiting for Bachelorette to come on! Pretty good for a Monday night, huh? I found a recipe for a vegan chickenless pad Thai on Pinterest that used vegan chick’n, but since I try not to eat much mock meat…

Refried Bean and Rice Burrito

  Well, this is the clearest picture I could get of this ah-mazing burrito! I had to make this one a little smaller for a picture because the first two were so messy when I attempted to roll them up, I might need bigger tortillas? These are the perfect quick dinner idea that can fill…

Meal Planning 6.10.18

I made this Sesame Tofu and Broccoli the other night and didn’t include the sesame oil, and I didn’t coat the tofu because I baked it instead of frying it until crunchy. It was okay, but wasn’t fantastic. I’m not sure if it was just from the missing oil, but it tasted too tangy like…

BBQ Vegetable Pita Pizza

Mozzarella or potato shreds? Well it looks like cheese shreds, but it’s potato which mimics the same look and texture to top the pizza. These personal BBQ pizzas were scrumptious! I roasted onions, cauliflower, zucchini, and mushrooms and used them to top a whole wheat pizza with sweet and spicy BBQ sauce. I added a…

Roasted Chickpea, Mushroom, and Kale Rice Bowl

Sometimes simplicity is key and when you have a few ingredients on hand you can easily make something filling, delicious, and healthy. I found a recipe for this on Pinterest and changed it up a bit for what I thought made it easier and it was! Instead of roasting just the chickpeas and sautéing the…

Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta

Craving a creamy Alfredo-type pasta without all the dairy and fat? I compiled a few vegan Alfredo recipes together to make one that would be the best and it was delicious. It’s a cashew based sauce, but instead of using a cup of cashews, I used half a cup and added zucchini as a filler…

Vegans in Vegas, baby!

This past weekend we were in Las Vegas for my best friend’s wedding and I was really excited for more vegan options available for us to have. I did some research and asked others what restaurants were favorites, but unfortunately most of them ended up being off the main strip so we didn’t want to…

Grilled Vegan Pizza

Everyone loves pizza night! Think going vegan means you can no longer enjoy one of the world’s favorite foods? NO WAY! Pizza can be so easily veganized and it’s still very much enjoyed at our house. We went over to my parent’s house last night for family dinner on Memorial Day and decided to make…

Loaded Potato Bean Nachos

If you’ve never used thinly sliced, crispy potatoes as a base for nachos, do yourself a favor and try it out ASAP! This was so tasty! Potatoes were a great replacement for chips because they’re the same shape and can hold the toppings without the oil, but still have the crispiness. I sprinkled them with…

Café Sunflower

Yesterday I met my bestie Dakota for lunch at a vegan restaurant in Sandy Springs, GA called Cafe Sunflower. She’s getting married this week in Las Vegas so we were talking about plans and details and it’s going to be beautiful! We’re so excited to go! I’ve never been to an all vegan restaurant before…
