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 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…

Healthy No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecakes (V/GF/RSF)

The taste of pumpkin pie without all the sugar and guilt of eating something unhealthy, yes please! I have been trying to cut back on sugary treats as of lately which is SO difficult for me, curse this hereditary sweet tooth. Creating healthy little sweet treats like this one has definitely been helping a ton….

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…

Southwestern Breakfast Bites (V/ GF)

I admit that I’m not a huge breakfast person -I like eating it but don’t like taking my time making it on busy days-, which is why I don’t have very many breakfast recipes that are not pancakes. I often will just grab a banana or make some oatmeal real quick, something quick and easy….

Garlic Herb Almond Cheese (V/GF)

My husband and I have been talking about trowing a little wine and cheese party for a while now, our discussion got me thinking about vegan party food options but especially cheese options to go with the wine. I did make a Jalapeno Cashew Cheese Ball recipe a while back but I also wanted an…

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…

Soft & Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies (V, GF)

Sometimes I just need some oatmeal cookies in my life, in this case It was about 11 at night when I decided I really wanted to make- and eat- some. As with most of my baking endeavors lately I didn’t look for a recipe to use. I simply knew I wanted them to be thick,…

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (V, GF)

I’ve been playing with the idea of making some vegan cheesy biscuits for a while now. I didn’t initially plan to make them gluten free, but when I went to finally test out the recipe I came to realize I was out of regular all purpose flour. Now, I could have easily have gone to…

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…

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread (V, GF)

This Vegan, Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is delicious, easy, and is a ONE BOWL recipe! Yummy treat with very few dishes to wash after, yes please! At the very beginning of my interest in cooking (12ish y/o) I thought the idea of using zucchini in baked goods was so strange. That was until one…
