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…

Balsamic Veggie CousCous Salad with Vegan Feta

This CousCous Salad brings all the tang of a Mediterranean meal and it’s perfect for a light dinner or simple lunch. It’s a few ingredients that come together and it’s a perfect combination. Pasta pearls with roasted veggies, and a zesty tofu feta that brings it all together in a balsamic dressing. It’s really easy…

Baked Eggplant Rolatini

It’s healthy, it’s saucy, it’s creamy, it’s Eggplant Rolatini! Baked thin slices of eggplant, stuffed with my tofu ricotta with spinach, and baked in marinara sauce served with a side of pasta and vegan parm. Yum! This is a great combination of lasagna and eggplant parmesan, two of my favorites. It’s simple to make and…

Thai Pasta Salad

It’s Saturday so I didn’t have to eat leftovers for lunch, like I usually do all week, so I was excited to get to make a quick and delicious lunch. I didn’t get to this Thai Pasta Salad last week so I made it for lunch! It’s amazing! It has crisp, raw veggies, whole grain…

Creamy Sharp Vegan Mac n Cheeze

Mac n Cheese has always been one of my favorites ever since I was little and ordered it all of the time. It continued to make me sick though so I became wary of eating it. Now that I can make a vegan version it’s game on with no fear! What a freeing feeling. I…

Oil Free Eggplant Parmesan (vegan)

I love how versatile eggplant is and it’s such a great main for any meal. One of my favorite ways to make it is Eggplant Parmesan for an Italian flair and it’s so good. This is a quick and easy recipe to make and it doesn’t require layering or baking a 9×13. I like how…

Creamy Baked Ziti

THIS WAS SOOOO GOOD! Seriously, one of the most delicious things I’ve had and much better than what I remember non-vegan baked ziti was. I got this recipe from Nora Cooks Vegan and I’m so glad I tried it out. It was a higher fat meal than I usually make from the fat from the…

Meal Planning 11.25.18

To say I stuffed myself to the brim on Thanksgiving and the day after would be an understatement, yet I still want another piece of pie since I was too full to have it last night! That means it’s time to get back in a healthy eating routine before Christmas parties and goodies arrive! Yesterday…

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…

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…
