Lentil Sloppy Joes

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

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. This is basically a baked potato in a bowl… how can you go wrong?         Print Vegan Baked Potato Soup Ingredients 4 large russet…

Sweet Potato and White Bean Stew

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

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. I knew I had some sauerkraut at home, and had been wanting to add it to a baked potato somehow. During…

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. This potato is stuffed with some Gardein meatless meatballs, a homemade sauce full of mushrooms and some dairy-free mozzarella cheese to top it off.  While this combo is great on top…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunchies

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…

Hearty Harvest Chili

I’m blessed this Thanksgiving holiday to have my family visiting from Kansas.  Although they love their meat… they are always willing to try out new things and eat vegetarian once in a while. My sister requested my vegetarian chili… this is the first recipe that I created and called my own.  In fact, it is one of my most requested…
