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…

Minestrone Soup

This fall weather is giving me all the soup cravings! I’m planning to make at least one soup recipe a week for this fall and winter season to try new ones out and most are a great way to get a lot of veggies in without a lot of calories. I love this one because…

Meal Planning 10.22.18

After a long weekend of fun at my cousin’s wedding, I need to detox. We had so much fun that included celebrating them while eating and drinking. I’m thankful there were vegan options for me to have all weekend long so it made it easier. At the bridesmaid luncheon I had a vegetable panini and…

Lemon Chickpea Orzo Soup

I used to make this soup with chicken all of the time in the colder months and it was my go to for sick family and friends. I decided to veganize it, which wasn’t hard because I just had to swap chickpeas for chicken and veggie broth instead of chicken broth. I used Vegetarian Better…

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…

Meal Planning 10.8.18

I almost forgot to post what I’m making this week! Whoops! I made these tacos with leftovers from last week’s potato nachos. They were scrumptious! I wanted to try a few new things this week so lately I’ve been using other people’s pictures on Instagram as inspiration. Here’s what else I’m making this week! Tofu…

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…

Meal Planning 9.16.18

Yesterday a parent in my class surprised me with a whole vegan Indian meal. Parents, this is the way to your child’s teacher’s heart. We like food. It was such a thoughtful surprise and it was delicious! She made me Chana masala, clove rice, fry bread, and even had a container for toppings. What a…

Cauliflower Gnocchi with Veggies in Lemon Garlic Sauce

Everyone loves this cauliflower Gnocchi from Trader Joe’s and I think it was even featured on the Today Show the other day. I bought a bag in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s during my weekly shopping trip and decided to mix it with some veggies and make a lemon garlic sauce. I wanted to…

Fluffy GF/Vegan Banana Snickerdoodles

My class this year has been so well behaved this year (overall) so it makes me want to bake for them more often as a treat. We are the Blair’s Bakers after all! I have a student with a gluten allergy and another with a nut allergy so I try to find treats that they…

Winner, Winner, Chickpea Loaf Dinner

Winner, winner, Chickpea dinner! We’re fans of lentil loaf, so when I found this recipe for chickpea loaf I wanted to see how it was. We also love chickpea balls so I knew we would most likely love this too! This comforting meal is familiar and hearty but full of healthy ingredients and zero saturated…

Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

Guess what? Before going vegan I was never a fan of peppers, corn, beans, or really even rice. My how your taste buds can change! I’m glad they did because all of those things came together to make these tasty stuffed peppers and it added something new that I’ve never made before to my repertoire….

Sofritas-esque Burrito Bowls

Josh is obsessed with Chipotle, I mean get it every day he’s off obsessed. It’s always a sofritas burrito bowl with black beans, fajita veggies, lettuce, corn pico, and guacamole. Chipotle is semi healthy without all the cheese, sour cream, and meat, but still has lots of oil and salt. I wanted to recreate something…

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…

BBQ Tofu and Rice Bowl

The taste of summer is BBQ sauce, and this BBQ glazed crispy tofu hit the spot. I added roasted broccoli, worcestershire baby Bella mushrooms, and tomatoes over long grain brown rice and drizzled my maple mustard bbq dressing over the top. It’s a summery, yet hearty meal made in heaven! You can add whatever veggies…

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Last night I made this light yet satisfying salad with crunchy spiced chickpeas, and an array of fresh veggies then topped it off with a creamy tzatziki dressing. It’s perfect for summer when you want something flavorful but it’s 100* outside. I used High Carb Hannah’s tzatziki recipe that I’ve posted before and it’s pretty…

Creole Spiced Lentils with Roasted Potato Chips

Just when I thought I was so prepared for this week’s meals… I ran out of most of what I needed for the sloppy Joe’s I was going to make tonight. I was out of chili powder, down a can of diced tomatoes, and then I was missing the main ingredient, BROWN LENTILS! Uhhh I…
