Greek Style Cucumber Nachos
Recipes
I’m really on a nacho roll lately… I’m just going to blame it on March Madness. After cooking up the Mediterranean inspired pizza last weekend, I started wondering if I could do nachos in a similar fashion. I wasn’t sure what to use as the base “chips” … I had originally thought pita chips – either homemade or packaged, but …
Med-Veg Pizza
Recipes
Pizza… it was my favorite food in High School… I thought I could eat it every day without growing tired of it (note:  my parents didn’t allow that to happen). The inspiration from this recipe comes from Connoisseurus Veg.  If you haven’t checked out her blog, you should! She has some great recipes! What intrigued me about this pizza was having a …
Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos
Recipes
It isn’t a secret that I love nachos… but generally they aren’t that good for you. A facebook friend had recently shared one of those cooking videos for sweet potato nachos, they were full of dairy and chicken… but it got me thinking about veganizing them! Since that recipe has shredded chicken, I thought that shredded jackfruit would be a good stand-in.  …
Veggie Stirfry with Spicy Peanut Sauce
Recipes
Stir-fry has got to be one of the fastest meals to cook… especially if you already have all the veggies prepped! I think it is also one of the most versatile… there are practically endless choices of vegetables and sauce combinations that you can use. I like a good amount of sauce… that will settle down into the rice so at the …
Broccoli Slaw Spaghetti
Recipes
I want to share a fast, easy meal today. It sounds a little strange, but trust me, It is good! In this creation, I use broccoli slaw as the spaghetti and top it with a jarred pasta sauce.  I really like the Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade – Wild Mushroom. I crumbled a little tempeh in the sauce for a little …
Savory Snack Crackers
Recipes
When I was growing up, Hidden Valley Ranch Oyster Crackers were a mainstay at potlucks and parties.  They were so good. I recently had a few extra packages of oyster crackers, and I thought why not make some of those crackers for snacking during the upcoming March Madness!  Then I came to the realization that the packet of Hidden Valley Ranch …
Meatless Lazy Lasagna
Recipes
I want to begin with this disclaimer… this is not a healthy or clean recipe.  With that being said… it’s all about moderation, so let’s get down to some ooey-gooey lasagna goodness! Some people get a little nervous and jerky when they think about a meal without meat… the hubs is one of them.  However, he does like lasagna and at times forgets …
Soba Noodles with Kimchi & Edamame
Recipes
This is an easy and quick dish, perfect for a weeknight. Kimchi is a fermented food which some studies have shown it to have beneficial bacteria to promote a healthy gut. I like to use spicy kimchi, and I like this to be warmed as well.  I have read that warming it takes away some of the goodness of the fermentation of …
Lentil Sloppy Joes
Recipes
I went a little “school lunch” retro today – Sloppy Joes! The hubs is a huge fan of sloppy joes, he could eat them every week. Of course his are made with either ground buffalo or beef, but it got me thinking… could I make sloppy joes for myself that were plant based. I had some lentils left over from when I …
Vegan Cauliflower Nachos
Recipes
I love nachos… but I could seriously do without eating the tortilla chips. I recently came across Greenback Gal’s Healthy Cauliflower Nachos and I knew this was something that I had to try. I switched up her recipe a bit, adding a lentil-walnut taco meat and vegan cheese sauce and vegan sour cream. The cauliflower, roasted in taco seasoning is …
