For years, Caesar salad was my #1 choice in a meal whenever I went out. After going Vegan, and my Caesar cravings really kicked in, I noticed that I couldn’t find any homemade dressings that didn’t contain cashews. As I am allergic to all nuts, it tends to get very frustrating to find simple recipes to make at home that don’t contain any cashews, almonds, etc. I knew I wanted to create my own but was feeling stumped on how to do so. That was until I discovered that hemp seeds could be the factor in fulfilling my love of… View Post

One Pan Baked Gnocchi

One Pan Baked Gnocchi

What if I told you that you could completely bake gnocchi and have it taste good? I know, it sounds weird. However, using store bough shelf life (not fresh), it is completely possible and delicious.  Gnocchi was my childhood. I was the pickiest eater and the idea of combining pasta and potatoes into one has always sounded like splendid idea.

Perfect weeknight meal and makes great lunch leftovers.    The great thing about this recipe is how versatile it is.… 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! I’ve always loved hummus and I’ve loved roasted chickpeas but for some reason I could just never eat chickpeas by themselves.  The other week when I ran out of tofu and I was craving a savory breakfast I thought, “Why not try chickpea scramble?” It was a recipe I haven’t really seen around, but it seemed like… View Post
