Oil Free Teriyaki Noodles with Crispy Tofu

This is one of my staple dinners because it’s easy, healthy, and always delicious. I am always down for a noodle bowl! I made up this oil free teriyaki recipe a while ago and use it all of the time for Asian dishes. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory and is great over…

Crispy Hawaiian Tofu Bowl

I’ve really been loving some crispy tofu lately! Rabbitsandwolves is one of my favorite bloggers on Instagram so I knew when she posted a picture of a Hawaiian tofu bowl I wanted to try it asap! She uses jalapeno in hers, but I thought it might be too spicy for my taste so I swapped…

Hoisin Lime Noodle Bowl

Nothing says Friday to me more than sweatpants and a bowl of noodles. Especially in this gloomy weather! #tiredteacherlife yes I know I’m only 28, but by Friday I feel 78. I saw Bosh.tv making a noodle bowl with a Hoisin sauce and decided to make one as well and just make the sauce up…

Egg Roll in a Bowl with Grilled Bok Choy

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it might be a healthier option than ordering greasy egg rolls from Chinese delivery (again). It’s vegan, oil free, GF, and has the same Asian cabbagey taste without all the fried fatty parts. I didn’t add the peas, just the Edamame for protein and swapped the black…

Shiitake and Bok Choy Soba Noodle Bowl

I’m always up for a bowl full of saucy, salty, flavorful noodles packed with veggies. Since I crave them so often, I try to come up with new combinations to make it interesting each time. Shiitakes are the most popular mushroom for Asian cooking and I love using Bok Choy in stir fries for a…

Vegan Summer Rolls

I’ve always been intrigued with summer rolls… are they called spring or summer rolls? They look so fresh and delicate, but they look like a wrapped up present of goodness with a stain glass window to see what’s inside. I saw the rice paper wrappers at the store last week and decided it was time…

Sweet and Spicy Tofu Lo Mein

It’s such a nice feeling knowing one of your favorite meals EVER is on your “diet plan”. I’m down for any vegan asian noodle bowls of any kind, so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes and ideas. I couldn’t find yakisoba noodles in the grocery (checked TJ’s and Kroger) so I picked up…

Meal Planning 7.23.18

After a glorious two weeks of endless white carbs (bread, pasta, bruschetta, pizza, bread, pasta, repeat) I’m ready to get back on my high carb low fat lifestyle. I know I usually eat a lot of carbs, 80% of my daily intake in fact, but complex carbs affect me so differently. After a few days…

Edamame and Hoisin Glazed Eggplant Sushi Bowl

Want the taste of sushi without taking the time to roll the nori? If anyone is intimidated to make sushi rolls at home, this is a great alternative and you can be creative with whatever ingredients you want to use or use what’s in your favorite sushi rolls. These are simple to make and they…

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…

Vegan Singapore Noodles

I’ve ordered Singapore noodles a couple of times from Asian restaurants and have mixed feelings. I usually like thicker rice noodles and sometimes their amount of curry is off. It’s good if you can’t decide between curry or noodles, but it’s the canned yellow curry powder taste. I found a recipe on Pinterest for vegan…

Saucy Asian Eggplant, Mushroom, and Bok Choy

While we were at Atlantis we had a really yummy Chinese garlic eggplant dish one night so I wanted to make something similar at home. I was going to make this with broccoli, but decided to switch it up and use baby bok choy. I’m always up for a stir fry and I can’t believe…

Chinese Chickpea Stir Fry

It’s another day that ends in Y so Chinese sounded delicious! I was planning on making something else for dinner but I had everything already for this so of course I chose it. Also, it’s the weekend so Chinese cravings are strong and it gives an excuse to eat it in a healthy way and…

Weekly Sushi Love

We’re used to weekly sushi because we used to go to our favorite sushi spot every weekend, but we got busy and it got too expensive for that extravagance. I’ve always wanted to make sushi, but it always worried me that the fish wouldn’t be fresh enough and I didn’t know where to buy it….

Baked Teriyaki Vegetable Spring Rolls

I wanted to make something special that I’ve never made before for our Valentine’s dinner at home last night. Instead of the usual cabbage and carrots inside a fried wrapper, I wanted to bake them. Since they were baked, I wanted to add the flavor on the inside with a sauteed vegetable and teriyaki sauce…

Veggie and Tofu Unfried Rice

Veggie and Tofu Unfried Rice After watching them add a pound of butter while making fried rice last weekend at hibachi, I wanted to find a healthy oil-free option that was still full of flavor. I cooked brown basmati rice in the rice cooker with miso broth which added a lot of asian flavor without…

Teriyaki Chickpea and Veggie Stir Fry

Well, this made up for my not so great things I made for Super Bowl (in my mind). This is something Josh and I both enjoy and it’s easy and quick for a tasty weeknight meal. I used the oil free teriyaki recipe I made for my noodle bowl last week and stir fried chickpeas with…

Teriyaki Tofu and Veggie Noodle Bowl

This is one of my favorite meals ever, because I could probably eat it multiple times a week for the rest of my life and be happy about it. There’s something so satisfying about noodle bowls because they’re full of umami flavor and I love the combination of textures. I love eating noodles with my…

Sweet Chili Tofu Buddha Bowl

There are endless options to buddha bowls, and I’m glad I found this one on Pinterest from Plant based Jane last week! It was colorful, flavorful, healthy, protein packed, and Asian (my favorite!) We were going to go out for date night, but since the Falcons game is on we decided to stay in so…
