Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Sometimes a big steaming bowl of mac n’ cheese is all it takes to make me happy. There is nothing more comforting than thick creamy cheese coating a heap of tender elbow macaroni. In this recipe, cauliflower is the secret ingredient to this vegan “cheesy” sauce, making this classic comfort food guilt-free too! Cauliflower florets…

Tofu Tacos

We haven’t made tacos in way too long – so I decided to remedy that asap! These tofu tacos were an easy and quick taco fix complete with lots of healthy protein and delicious toppings. With the help of some frozen bell pepper strips, jarred salsa, and a packet of taco seasoning, this tofu crumble…

Crispy Fried Tofu Sandwiches

A fried chicken sandwich is one of those things I had written off as a meal I will never consume again. I used to love the crispy/zesty taste of a fast-food chicken sandwich (guilty as charged!!) but figured it would be impossible to make a vegan version, and even if I tried, it would be…

Cauliflower Cake

It’s almost casserole season! The brisk fall weather had me yearning for some nourishing warmth straight from the oven. This cauliflower cake was a simple and healthy dinner option that fulfilled that desire completely. The cake uses tofu to bind everything together instead of eggs, and softened cauliflower florets give it texture and lots of…

Chocolate Banana Fudge Pops

I’m a big Fudgsicle fan — but really, who isn’t? I wanted to try to make a vegan version of the frozen chocolate treat, and, dare I say, make it even better?! This dessert gets its sweetness from bananas and saltiness and creaminess from peanut butter. Plus, they take just five minutes to whip up…

Tomato Risotto

Summer tomatoes in New Jersey are like the ultimate cream of the crop. Supermarket tomatoes will never cut it for me after being spoiled with the juiciest and sweetest heirlooms and beefsteaks of Jersey farm stands. I incorporate them into as many recipes as possible in the summertime to make best use of this local…

Grilled Plum Salad

I absolutely love the bounty of fruit available in the summertime, especially stone fruits and berries that just don’t have the same flavor and sweetness when they aren’t in season. Plus, stone fruits like plums, peaches, and apricots are perfect for grilling because they are sturdy enough to keep their shape, and sweet enough to…

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Casserole

I’m trying to work on my casserole game, especially since I have recently acquired a few new beautiful baking dishes and I want to make use of them! Fit Foodie Finds inspired me with their recipe for a broccoli and cheese casserole, which I have adapted here to better fit our tastes and our pantry….

Crunchy Ramen Noodle Salad

  Initially I was skeptical about this recipe from Delish. Crunchy chunks of ramen noodles that are toasted in the oven rather than boiled? Is that even edible? It sure is!! And it makes for a delicious and crunchy salad.      I adjusted the original recipe very slightly to make it vegan and to…

Kung Pao Cauliflower

I was recently gifted a wok as a housewarming present and I was super excited. I had never cooked with a wok before and I immediately started looking up recipes to make use of this great tool. Obviously it is ideal for stir fries of any kind, but this recipe for Kung Pao Cauliflower by Inquiring…
