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.

There is no cilantro in this recipe however it is… View Post

Herbed Smashed Potatoes

Herbed Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes…A delicious carb. Arguably, the best carb. So today I have a recipe for these yummy smashed potatoes (can be oil free). These will be the perfect side dish to your yummy dinners, or great to have with a salad. They are full of amazing flavor from fresh herbs and have a cheesy feel because of the nutritional yeast.  These could completely be made oil free and still taste amazing. I added a little but really it doesn’t make a difference.  They are packed with garlic, thyme, rosemary, nutritional yeast and other yummy herbs.
