Easy Holiday Meal Ideas

Easy Holiday Meal Ideas

With the holidays approaching, it can be hard to be the only Vegan in a family setting. Whether it isn’t having many options, or the constant remarks from family, the holidays can be a “tough” time for Vegans alike.  I wanted to come up with a few meals for you guys to either bring for a large group of people, or just for yourself. This Christmas, my family friends asked me to bring a dish or two. Besides bringing dishes for a large group of people, I am also going to bring my own personal meals. It is always easier… View Post

Potatoes: Two Ways

Potatoes: Two Ways

The best part about Thanksgiving, to me, is mashed potatoes! Seriously, who doesn’t love potatoes? Mashed, roasted, steamed, fried…Give me them all. Before going Vegan we would always buy these pre-made (I know…We’re terrible people) maple whipped sweet potatoes just because they were SO good! Since I can’t eat them anymore, I wanted to try to recreate them on my own and I must say…they’re pretty epic.  We also have some roasted garlic mashed potatoes because that combination is just glorious. No other way to really describe it.  Roasting Garlic is actually SUPER SIMPLE! It also tastes so delicious! It… View Post

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Sides are probably one of the most important factors in the holidays! Tasty sides help make up a successful holiday meal and I want to help you guys have that successful VEGAN meal!  I decided to go for two incredibly simple recipes that can cook at the same exact time if you’re looking to make more than one vegetable side. Both using ingredients that you most likely have on hand, and will take 35-40 minutes to make in total.  Brussel sprouts have easily become one of my favorite vegetables. As a kid I absolutely despised them (didn’t we all?), but… View Post

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

I have never been a fan of stuffing. I know it’s crazy. Bread? Veggies? How could I say no? I think it’s because I was such a picky eater for a long time. However after going Vegan, I have developed a whole new love for food and I knew that this would have to be a recipe I attempted for the holiday season.    I have always loved cornbread. I grew up with my grandmother making her own and I’ve always cherished that family memory. My grandmother is still alive but has sadly declined in the past few years so… View Post

Vegan Loaded Nachos

Vegan Loaded Nachos

Do you want to know something crazy? I have never ordered nachos at a Mexican restaurant before. It sounds strange I know, but before going Vegan nachos never interested me. I love chips, I love (vegan) cheese…It just is a combo that I never craved. Until now.  If you haven’t noticed, I love to create creamy cheesy sauces using vegetables. Specifically, using Cauliflower. It is virtually tasteless when boiled down however adds a great creaminess which blends perfectly with other flavors.  The truth: I hate red onions…I also hate cilantro. There is no cilantro in this recipe however it is… View Post
