Tofu Divan

My mom used to make Chicken Divan as one of her classics, and it was always one of my favorites. Going vegan, it took me a while to realize that I could veganize the recipe and wouldn’t have to miss it at all! It’s so many layers of textures and flavors, plus the curry sauce…

Vegan Broccoli Cheeze Rice Casserole

This is one of Josh’s favorite comfort food meals, which is easy to veganize, but to make it healthy? Turns out it was easy! I used my broccoli Cheeze soup recipe and then mix it with brown rice, chickpeas, then top with panko breadcrumbs, a sprinkle of vegan cheddar shreds and bake until bubbly. It’s…

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. When I think of broccoli cheese soup, I think of Panera’s creamy soup in a huge bread bowl, it always looked good but I didn’t want to tread those waters. Going vegan has…

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…

Portobello Gyro Bowl

Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry, I’ve been a little busy having a baby during a pandemic. We had Hayden on February 8th, then everything seemed to fall apart. Luckily, we quarantined at the beach with my parents and it was a God send. Things are much better now and I’m loving being…

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…

Improved Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

I’ve made a lentil shepherd’s pie once before and when Josh named it as one of his top meals I’ve made I wanted to make it again last week. This time I wanted to make it even better than last time and I really think it was! The lentil mixture is so savory, believe me…

Creamy Mac n Veggies

I’m always down for a veggie Mac n cheeze, so when I saw this recipe on Instagram by @alexfuellednaturally I wanted to give it a try. I’ve never used white beans in the sauce before and it was really tasty! It still uses carrots and potatoes as well, and plant based milk and spices that…

Grilling Feast!

Vegan French Toast 2

Starting our Memorial Day off right with this delicious cinnamon raisin French toast! It’s not soggy in the middle like some French toast, and it was a crunchy crust that makes it extra scrumptious.

Creamy Tomato Soup

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…
