Pesto and Tomato Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese with Pesto and Tomato – Grilled cheese is already amazing but when you add pesto, tomato slices, and make it vegan, it’s even better! I highly recommend trying this jazzed up version of everyone’s childhood favorite. You could also make this with lots of different combinations, like salsa and avocado or fake ham…

Curry Trail Mix

I love a good trail mix. I’m a chronically hungry person, so trail mix is my friend. I keep nuts and dried fruits available at my work desk and in our cabinets almost always (and not to mention my purse!) For a quick jolt of energy and calories when I’m in a pinch. I was…

Easy Garlic Bread

To me, garlic bread goes with just about everything. If it’s a saucy dish, then it’s practically necessary! We often whip up this quick and easy garlic bread recipe to go with dinner on a whim. Hubs likes when we have crusty bread because it makes the best garlic bread. This time I picked up…

Baked Tofu with Strawberry Salsa

To me, June means strawberries. There’s only one month per year in the Northeast USA that has really good, juicy, sweet strawberries. I don’t trust those mid-winter grocery store strawberries that are almost as big as apples. I wait for the real, beautiful, natural thing and enjoy the heck out of them for those few…

English Breakfast

One of my favorite things about visiting England has always been ordering a full English breakfast. For me, that generally means going to a hipster restaurant that has a vegan or vegetarian English breakfast option on the menu. However, I have always thought that the best parts of a full English are the beans, tomatoes,…

Lemon Bars

Is there anything more refreshing than the taste of lemon? I think that refreshing quality is why lemon makes such a great dessert flavor. It is the perfect way to end a meal, especially when you’re already full from a heavy entree! These lemon bars are not only refreshing, but they’re also remarkably healthy. They’re…

Chik’n Caesar Salad

My sister-in-law recently sent me a recipe for a vegan Caesar salad from skinnytaste and it was the most beautiful Caesar salad I’ve ever seen! That recipe was a more modern take on the classic favorite, including interesting ingredients like microgreens and chives, but it inspired me to develop my own version of this simple…

Radicchio and Squash Salad

I had never cooked with radicchio before but I saw a similar dish elsewhere and was inspired to make my own! I absolutely love the deep red color and, as you know, I’m really into trying new things. I learned that radicchio is sometimes called Italian Chicory because it is commonly used in Italian cooking….

Cauliflower Wings

When smothered with buffalo wing sauce, these cauliflower florets are a great alternative for wings. I’m so excited to have this vegan substitute available for the next game night or viewing party. Plus, they’re baked, and they are vegetables, so they are good for you! Making these wings is a multi-step process, which includes dipping…

Vegetable Lo Mein

I used to almost always order Lo Mein when we would order Chinese food takeout. I love everything about it: the slimy noodles, the crunchy vegetables, and the delicious salty sauce in which it’s all drenched. Lo mein is typically made with Chinese egg noodles, so I figured it was high time to veganize (and…
