Eggless Egg Foo Young

I always crave Egg Foo Young when I am sick. Weird, I know… but I always know I am on the mend when I have the taste for it. After making the scrambled “eggs” from Ashley over at Blissful Basil, I began to wonder if eggless Egg Foo Young was possible. I’m happy to say that it is!!!       Print Eggless…

Quick Black Beans and Rice

I’m not sure this can even be considered a recipe, given it is super easy and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. I love this meal for weeknights when cooking seems like too much trouble.  It is also great in the summer-time as it does not require use of oven or stovetop. Uncle Ben’s ready rice makes preparation a…

Vegan Scrambled Tofu Breakfast Burritos

I admit… I have never liked eggs.  I don’t care for the taste, and they always make me burp. Scrambled tofu, I like. When I found this recipe for scrambled tofu, made with aquafaba from Ashley over at Blissful Basil, I was intrigued. The thing is with scrambled tofu is the tofu doesn’t really stick together after you’ve made it….

Vegan Loaded BBQ Potato

  Monday I shared a recipe for a loaded baked potato… today I’m sharing another one, but this time with BBQ! BBQ potatoes are all the rage at BBQ restaurants in Houston (and maybe other spots too), the only problem is that they come loaded with meat. Given my love for baked potatoes and my love for bbq sauce, I knew I…

Vegan Tex-Mex Loaded Baked Potato

I love a baked potato… seriously, who doesn’t. When you combine it with healthy ingredients, it makes it a meal upon itself. I am a fan of spicy food, so this baked potato has a little spice to it from the pico de gallo. I’ve also added black beans for a little protein. I recently learned that you can make…

Spicy Coleslaw

Spicy coleslaw is one of my most requested recipes for summer cookouts. This recipe is an attempt at recreating the spicy coleslaw a friend from Kansas used to bring to our driveway parties. When we moved, I asked him for the recipe… but it was one of those that was never written down and changed every time he made it.    …

Awesome Pasta Salad

Summer time is upon us, and to me it means a lot of outdoor entertaining and barbeques. I tend to always make a pasta salad as a side dish during the summer. This pasta salad I created for my sister after she had given birth to her twin girls.  She loved this salad and I knew I was on to…

Vegan Margherita Pizza

When I found the vegan mozzarella alternative recipe from Mary Ellen over at VNutrition, I knew I had to try it. It looked like a very quick and easy recipe AND it looked like it got melty. I am a pizza lover and one of the things that I miss when trying to be dairy free is pizza. I thought…

Pineapple Broccoli Quinoa

When I found this recipe from Lucie over at Win-Win Food I knew I had to try it! Who could resist a nutrient rich dish that can be ready to eat in 30 minutes?  Not me! I made it from the recipe, but then found that I did need to add a little spice to suit my tastes. I’ve included my…

Cauliflower Korma

I can’t remember the first time I tried Indian food.  I do remember that it made me very happy… all the flavors and intoxicating scents, it was like a party was going down in my mouth. I haven’t cooked much Indian food, but when I found this recipe from Allison at Yummy Beet.  I knew I had to try it. …
