Simple Chickpea Noodle Soup

I wasn’t feeling great over the weekend and wanted to make something easy on my stomach. This Chickpea Noodle Soup was easy to make and even easier to eat! It tasted so good! I topped it with Violife vegan parmesan and we roasted some pita bread to dunk in. As always, I had some apples…

Warm Fall Vegetable Pasta Salad

I saw a version of a Fall Vegetable pasta salad on Rabbitsandwolves Instagram page and it looked perfect for a fall day! I changed mine up a little bit and used some different veggies and made my dressing differently. I didn’t want to use oil so didn’t want to use vegan mayo so I made…

Portobello and Balsamic Ragu with Pasta and Italian Zucchini

I’ve been on the pasta train lately, there’s been a lot going on and I’ve just been craving comforting dishes which for me is carbs. I found these cute little noodles at Trader Joe’s on the imported from Italy section called Gigli. This reminded me of pasta I had in Italy because it’s simple and…

Veggilicious Pasta

I bought a bag of whole wheat fusilli from Trader Joe’s to bring to the mountains as a back up in case we needed something to eat, but since we didn’t I got to use it the night we got home. I got some more veggies because I like to have about an equal ratio…

Garlic Hummus and Spinach Pasta

Who knew you could make hummus into a creamy, garlicky, lemony sauce for pasta?! I mean, sign me up. I like hummus, I like pasta, and combined was a tasty mix. I used zucchini, spinach, and tomatoes as the veggies inside and the hummus as my sauce base. I added some pasta water to thin…

Summer Veggie Linguine with Pink Sauce

Yum! I was planning on making a fettuccine Alfredo with summer veggies from my McDougall recipe app, but I changed it up to fit my taste for what I was wanting tonight. I wanted to cut back on the fat from the cup of nuts it called for (since I ate another brownie today) so…

Broccoli Kale Mac n Cheeze

Mac n cheese was my all time favorite meal as a child and I ordered it every time we went out to dinner. Problem was, I was lactose intolerant and I got sick on the way home after EVERY time. I still give my mom grief for not putting that together! After that, whenever I…

Positano, Italy Vegan Eats

We just got back from an incredible 12 day trip to Italy and I’m up at 4:30 with my messed up time change alarm clock, so I thought I would start to share with you the best vegan finds and delicious restaurants we went to while we were there. I already shared the not so…

Greek Oil Free Pasta Salad

Need a simple and fresh pasta salad for summer? This was a tasty and dill-icious light dinner and would be perfect as a side for a cook out or party. It’s only a few ingredients and it comes together quickly, so I’m glad I put these things together because it definitely works! I used High…

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…

Baked Penne Mushroom Florentine

Another night, another McDougall recipe this week. His is Baked Penne Florentine, but I added the baby bellas to make it a little more substantial and add some more flavors to this dish and it turned out to be good! It uses cashews as the base of the creamy sauce so it adds protein with…

Balsamic Roasted Veggie Pasta

Well you would think this would be a super easy throw together meal that would be really hard to mess up, right? Apparently I found a way to do that! I think this could have definitely been great with whole wheat pasta instead of using the brown rice and quinoa pasta that I used. When…

Vegan Baked Ziti

Anyone else always get Sbarro ziti in the food court growing up on a long day of shopping with your mom? Even though you were lactose intolerant? Only me…? Not the best decision I might add. This is also something my mom used to make, and then it became my go-to in high school  meal…

Red Lentil and Roasted Veggie Pasta

If spaghetti is part of a “diet”, then I’m in! This has a mix of roasted eggplant, zucchini, and baby bella mushrooms mixed with split red lentils in an oil free marinara sauce topping brown rice spaghetti. It was filling and a spin on one of those staple meals that you miss if you don’t…

Mushroom and Spinach Pasta with Rosemary White Bean Sauce

Perfect rainy night meal alert! I came up with this idea after I saw Clinton Kelly making a white bean and spinach pasta on The Chew last week. I was really excited to see a vegan option on their show because I usually have to ignore most of the things that they make now. Minus…

Butternut Squash Mac and Garlic Asparagus

Mac ‘n cheese was my favorite food growing up so it holds a special place in my heart, however I’m lactose intolerant so it also makes me sick, literally. When I was little I would order it every time we went out to dinner and without a doubt we would have to stop on the…
