Cranberry Tofu

It’s tangy and sweet. It’s delicious and easy. It’s cranberry tofu! Hubby said it tasted like Christmas, almost like mulled wine due to a touch of cinnamon and that sweet cranberry bite. The cranberries plump up and absorb all the wonderful flavors of the red wine and veggie stock. And besides all that, the meal…

This creamy potato and onion tart is my new favorite thing in the whole world. You know when you have a tough day at work and life is just stressful and you need something comforting? Please do yourself a favor and make THIS!  Besides being a virtual blanket and cozy and seriously aromatic, this dinner…

Tex-Mex Jackfruit Chili

Is it chili season yet? We had a few cool nights last week so I embraced it and tried a new recipe for chili using spicy jackfruit and a couple cans of beans. For this recipe, all you have to do is basically open up some packages/cans and pour it into a pot. Couldn’t be…

Palm harvesting can sometimes be harmful to the environment though, so make sure you buy a Fairtrade brand like Acai Palmito. In this recipe, I…

Breaded Fried Mushrooms

Wanna make a good thing even better? Bread it and fry it!  Mushrooms are the star of this show and are enhanced delightfully with the added crunchy texture of fried panko breadcrumbs. This is an easy way to jazz up an otherwise lackluster game of “what’s left in the fridge by Friday”. Have fun! Ingredients…

Caprese Open Faced Sandwich

Arguably one of the best things about summer is the taste of fresh, ripe tomatoes from the farmers market (especially Jersey tomatoes!). They’re delicious by themselves just with salt and pepper, but also divine with basil and mozzarella, also known as the caprese salad. We had the caprese combination on some rustic bread and some…

Dijon Mustard Tofu

Browned tofu slices draped in a creamy Dijon sauce seasoned with fresh cracked pepper. It tastes as divine as it sounds! The sharp mustard is complemented with white wine and vegan sour cream to make a deliciously creamy sauce; I had it with chicken back in my meat eating days, and now I can say…
