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…

Braised Brussels Sprouts

  I think brussels sprouts are one of the most under appreciated vegetables. They are one of my favorite fall foods and are always on my Thanksgiving table. The hubs always wants them covered with some orange cheese sauce, but once these come out of the oven… he forgets about the cheese (thankfully). The original recipe is from the great…

Vegan Breakfast in a Cup

I have never been a fan of breakfast. I think a lot of it is due to the fact that I am not a morning person.  I need something that is quick and easy and good on the go.  I usually eat breakfast after I’ve been at work for an hour or so. I recently veganized this dish from a recipe…

Sweet Potato Chili

I love a good chili! To me, it speaks of crisp fall days, football, and bonfires. While it still is very much like summer in Houston, I’m not even in the chili making mode. This recipe is based on the Sweet Potato Chili recipe in Simple Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin.  I’ve added a few of my own touches to it…

Vic’s Famous Blender Salsa

It is no secret that I love salsa. I started making this salsa about 24 years ago in an attempt to copy the salsa from my favorite Mexican restaurants. It has evolved over the years… back in the day, the only ingredients were tomatoes, jalapeños, and garlic.  As my knowledge of cooking and ingredients developed, I added ingredients to enrich the flavor. I still…
