Creamy Mushroom Risotto (V/GF)

Mushrooms are definitely an acquired taste. Honestly, I didn’t like them very much until after I became a vegan. Once vegan, mushrooms became my main meat substitute. I tried them in so many different meals, burgers, lasagnas, soups, enchiladas, tacos, and so much more. One of my early vegan favorites was stuffing portobellos with navy…

Roasted “Turkey” Seitan Sandwiches

  This recipe starts with making a juicy, and garlicky,  Roasted Turkey Style Seitan from scratch. Raw seitan isn’t the most appealing thing to look at -as you can see from mine pictured below- but it is a tasty alternative to eating meat. I could have probably spent more time on rolling my dough into…

Roasted Vegetable Pasta (V/GF)

This is one of my new favorite weeknight dinners. It can be made in 30-Minutes, super easy, filling, and loaded with veggies. Oven roasting vegetables is my most favorite way to cook vegetables and I LOVE pasta, so why not combine the two? I decided to go with a sun dried tomato sauce that is…

General Tso’s Tofu (V/GF)

One of -what used to be- my most favorite Chinese Restaurant dishes, made vegan! I’m lucky enough to have a plant powered Asian cuisine restaurant close, but it is a once a month treat to get to eat there, so I like to make my own versions for the in between. This isn’t the quickest…

Creamy Roasted Poblano Pasta (V, GF)

I started working on the sauce first, intending it to be a variation in dressing for a pasta salad recipe I made a few months ago, but still haven’t posted because it still needs some tinkering. Next thing I knew, I had made what tasted like a spicy Alfredo sauce. I may not have finished…

Thai Basil Tofu Stir-Fry (V, GF)

My husband took me out to lunch at a local Thai restaurant last week that was super delicious, and it inspired me to make something similar to what I ate there. This recipe is what I came up with. I seriously think I could munch on the pan fried Tofu from this recipe all day,…

Plant Power Bowl with Poblano Cashew Sauce

This is a delicious and healthy meal that is perfect for making ahead of time to pack up as weekday lunches. In my opinion it is just as delicious cold or room temp if you don’t have a way to warm it up when on the go, and there isn’t anything in the dish that…

Pulled Mushroom Barbacoa Tacos (V, GF)

This recipe is my vegan version of Barbacoa Tacos, made with pulled mushrooms! I worked on this recipe (in my head) for about a month before actually attempting to make it, mostly trying to figure out what kind of mushrooms I wanted to use. I decided on portobello mushrooms because they are available in most…

Bar-B-Q Jackfruit Sandwiches with Crispy Fried Onions (V, GFF)

Good-ole Texas barbecue, vegan style! When I think of good Texas barbecue I think of Stubb’s Bar-B-Q sauce so I used some in this recipe. You can of course try this recipe using any vegan friendly barbecue sauce of your choosing (be sure to let me know if it’s super delicious with any other brand)…

Sesame Cauliflower (V, GF)

This is by no means is a “healthy” recipe considering there is frying involved. I tested several different batters for the cauliflower and cooked them in the oven which would have been a healthier choice but none of those oven fried batters turned out the way I was really wanting. I was wanting this Sesame…

Garden Pasta Salad (V, GF)

What inspired me for this recipe was I was trying to come up with a tasty lunch that my husband could take with him to work. For his job he drives around all day, rarely has a lot of time to stop for lunch, and always eats out. It is difficult for him to make…

Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai (V, GF)

Me and my husband LOVE spicy food, although he definitely enjoys his food spicier than I can tolerate. I actually made this recipe just for him but fell in love with it myself, it is spicy but also SO tasty. This Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai is a quick and easy recipe that can be made…
