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…

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…

Monster Sketti

I promise there are no monsters in this spaghetti.  I’m not really sure where the name came from… the hubs came up with it, so hard telling 🙂 This sauce recipe is almost as easy as just opening up a jar… but with no added sugars or things you can’t pronounce!           Print Monster Sketti Ingredients…

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…

Buffalo Stuffed Baked Potatoes with Blue Cheeze Drizzle

Baked potatoes are such a great blank canvas.  As you have probably noticed, I really enjoy them! As a fan of spicy food, one of the things I have missed since becoming plant based was spicy chicken wings.  Thank you to whoever came up with buffalo cauliflower! This recipe combines buffalo sauce, cauliflower and soy curls for the buffalo part. …

Baked Pasta Casserole

Pasta… one of my favorite comfort foods. This casserole is one of my favorite ways to carbo load before a race. It is quick and easy and adaptable according to your tastes.  This would be great with homemade sauce, the addition of spinach… the possibilities are almost endless. I used a jarred pasta sauce for convenience. I like Mezzetta Napa…

Campfire Burritos

This past weekend I went out to the hub’s deer lease to camp. I wanted to get a little creative about food, because you can only eat so many veggie burgers in a weekend. I found some recipes for burritos cooked at a campfire and modified the ingredients to be plant based. These come out really good and are quick and…

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Spinach, Curry Spiced Chickpeas, & Cashew Cream Sauce

Baked potatoes… I love them! I have recently been introduced to baked sweet potatoes, and I love them just as much. I think they are a bit more versatile being able to take on sweet or savory toppings/fillings. I’ve filled this one with some great ingredients, it’s probably a nutritional powerhouse! How can it not be with sweet potato, spinach, and…

Soba Noodle Bowl with Sriracha Tofu & Peanut Sauce

At a recent trip to Trader Joe’s, I came across a new flavor of baked tofu – Sriracha. It made it into my cart, with no thought as to what I might do with it. After only having my first goddess bowl (thanks Kimmy for the term) just a few weeks ago, I’ve become somewhat obsessed with making bowls. It’s…
