Vegan Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

The hubs is totally hooked on the summer rolls at our local Pho restaurant.  He could eat them every day! They will make a vegan version for me, but it isn’t that great.

Use your favorite fresh mozzarella or make your own.  I like this mozzarella from VNutrition.     Print Soba Noodle Salad with Tahini-Miso Dressing…

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.

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 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.

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…

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. …
