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…

Texas Style Avocado Toast

This week has been insanely busy at work and on top of that I have been helping my sister-in-law plan her baby gender reveal party, which I will be making a cake for this weekend. I’m super excited to reveal the great news to them! In all my busyness I almost didn’t have time 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…

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…
