Superbowl: Four Easy Vegan Recipes

Superbowl: Four Easy Vegan Recipes

The Super Bowl is a pretty epic day in the United States, as well as to others around the world who also watch. I always watch even though I am not super into football. I enjoy the commercials and halftime show (SO pumped for Lady Gaga).  So whatever the reason may be on why you tune in, it is SO important to have good snacks to feed your guests or just your family.  I wanted to come up with a few recipes for you guys to have and be able to pick and choose which works best for your family.… View Post

Lentil Meatballs

Lentil Meatballs

Before going Vegan, I don’t think I have EVER ordered “Spaghetti & Meatballs” in a restaurant before. Ever since going Vegan I just have so much fun recreating recipes and “Veganizing” them even though previously I was never a fan of them. I think I just have become obsessed with the endless ways to use plants and I take full advantage.  A lot of my recent recipes have included beans as the star in the dish and that is because lately I have been eating them like crazy! Beans are so great for you and are packed with protein and… View Post

Chickpea Scramble

Chickpea Scramble

The other day I got a comment on one of my pictures that said “I see that you prefer chickpeas!” Guilty. Chickpeas have become my favorite bean over the past couple of months which is ironic because in the past I’ve absolutely hated them!

Arugula Pesto

Arugula Pesto

Who knew that you could create pesto with the main ingredient being something other than basil? Out of boredom and A LOT of arugula I decided to experiment in my kitchen. I am used to making a standard pesto with basil and avocado but I decided to switch it up a little bit.  For starters, this recipe is completely nut free. Since I am allergic to all nuts, all of my recipes happen to be nut free! I just decided to skip adding a replacement all together and wanted this to be super basic.  To make this pesto oil free,… View Post

Sweet & Sour Eggplant

Sweet & Sour Eggplant

I love how versatile eggplant is. Italian dishes, Asian dishes…It’s such a great veggie to incorporate! It has such great flavor and is fun to play around with. I wanted to develop an Asian inspired dish that didn’t incorporate tofu because I know some people are not a huge fan. I like to make meals that everyone can enjoy and I know you guys will love this one!  This recipe is addicting. After I took my photos I sat on the floor by my marble slab and ate this bowl pictured. It is just so good. Don’t get me wrong… View Post
