Eggplant Veggie Parm

Eggplant parm is such a great dish because eggplant is a great meat replacer and can hold so much flavor. It has that chewy, satisfying texture and if you add a crunchy breadcrumb layer it makes it even better. As it bakes the breadcrumbs help thicken the sauce and the cheese melts and it makes…

Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff is a creamy, rich, mushroom based dish either served with pasta, mashed potatoes, or rice and I decided to make my own recipe without added oil or excess fat. It was really tasty and served with whole wheat ziti and a side salad. I looked at a few recipes to get my ideas…

Vegan Broccoli Cheeze Soup

I never got to indulge in broccoli cheese soup, because as someone who’s lactose intolerant, that was more than I could handle.

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…

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.

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.

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…

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…

My sister sent me the recipe for this creamy tomato soup last week and it looked so simple and tasty, I wanted to try it! I don’t have an instant pot, so it’s really helpful that there’s also a stove top recipe included. It’s creamy, smooth, and tomatoey with hints of Italian herbs. I only…
