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)…

Vegetable Fried Rice (V, GF)

Simple, easy, and delicious recipe this week. This Vegetable Fried Rice pairs great with last week’s recipe Sesame Cauliflower. I’m usually partial to white rice since it cooks up faster, but white rice causes more of an insulin spike due to its very low fiber and fat content. Brown rice also increases insulin release, but…

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…

Curried Vegetable Soup (V, GF)

The best part about soup is it can be packed full of all sorts of good nutrients. This Curried Vegetable Soup is one that will leave you not only satisfyingly full but also give you a boost of energy after eating, and possibly even glowy skin. This Curried Vegetable Soup is not only super delicious,…

Veggie Gyros

I’m quite excited to share this recipe with you all. I came up with these Veggie Gyros back in May of 2015 but never wrote down how I made them, mostly because It is such a simple recipe. I was actually planning on perfecting and posting this recipe in my first year of blogging (last…

Skillet Potato Tacos

So I mentioned that my  Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread was the first recipe I created after going vegan; I guess that would make these Skillet Potato Tacos the second (and I’ve totally lost count after those).  I’ve been making these often for over two years now and never made a point to write it down,…

Classic Chickpea Salad

I already had several other recipes lined up to share with all of you before testing/ photographing this one, but I am so excited about this recipe (because it is SO delicious) that I bumped it to the front of my line-up. Crunch of celery, sharp taste of green onion, sweet burst from the grapes……

Veggie Avocado Club Sandwich

I didn’t plan to create this recipe, It kinda just happened one day when I didn’t have a clue what I was going to eat for lunch that day. I pulled a bunch of veggies out of my fridge that I had on hand, and this is what I came up with. It’s such a…

Chipotle Tofu Hoagies (Vegan)

This sandwich. I’m like a fat kid when thinking about this sandwich, heavy breathing and all, haha! I’m not the kind to toot my own horn or whatever (being the maker of this recipe and all) but in all seriousness… this sandwich is amazing. It is a bit of work with quite a few steps…
