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 …
Vegan Baked Potato Soup

To me, this screams comfort food… creamy, rich and satisfying. I’ve taken the classic loaded baked potato soup and veganized it.  It features plant based milk, tofu sour cream, dairy free cheese, and coconut bacon.

Sweet Potato and White Bean Stew
Recipes
Some time ago, I had dreamt up this great stew with sweet potatoes, white beans, and swiss chard that I served over farro.  Unfortunately, I never wrote down the recipe so all that remains of it is a photo and a comment about making up this dish while walking the halls at work. It sounded so good, so I set …
Black Eyed Pea and Barley Soup
Recipes
Happy New Year! It is a tradition with my family to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day. I’ve never been a fan of a bowl of plain ol’ black eyed peas… I think that they taste like dirt. It was a joke growing up that we had “dirt” for dinner on new years day. I don’t know that …
Rueben Stuffed Baked Potato

Here I am with yet another baked potato recipe! I came up with this creation during a run.  I was hungry and knew I had a baked potato in the fridge, just waiting to dressed up with some goodness.

Italiano Stuffed Potato

It isn’t a secret I love baked potatoes! I seriously think that I am on a mission to stuff a potato with every type of cuisine that there is.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunchies
Recipes
What would Christmas be like without Christmas candy… or cookies?  Sad, it would be sad. One candy recipe my family has made for years is “white candy”… it has peanut butter, peanuts, marshmallows, and rice krispies coated in almond bark.  It is quite good.  I was hoping to veganize that recipe, but life happened and I wasn’t able to locate …
