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…

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…

Green Gazpacho

This is basically a green juice or smoothie, but in soup form! It’s chock full of nutritious veggies and flavorful herbs, blending together into a super bright dish (both in color and taste). It’s a great way to nourish your body if you’re feeling sluggish, or if you’re like me and have over indulged in…

Taco Dip with Refried Beans

One of my favorite party foods is layered taco dip. Usually it’s full of cheese and sour cream, but this version is vegan, a bit healthier, and still totally delicious! The best part are the vegan refried beans which are perfectly smoky and creamy. We ate this dip during a big championship soccer match (hubs…

Sweet Potato Toast

I’m jumping on the bandwagon for this beautiful little trend. I was so pleasantly surprised by this fad that I want to shout it from the rooftops. If you want to go low carb or no carb but still want to eat a warm piece of toast in the morning with melty butter/ nutella/ peanut…

Breakfast Burrito

There is something so wonderful about a burrito. It’s this pocket of goodness that’s bursting full of lots of different delicious components – hard to keep together in your hands but worth every drip down your sleeve! ­čśé Every individual part takes on a totally different experience when packed together inside in a tortilla.  This…

Sweet Potato White Bean Chili

Life of an imperfect vegan: that moment when your gas is turned off in your apartment and you can’t use your stove or oven for days.  How am I supposed to cook and blog when I have no stove or oven? I don’t even have a microwave! All week I felt so annoyed and so…

Chickpea Avocado Salad

A great vegan lunch option is this chickpea avocado salad. It’s delicious on a sandwich or on top of mixed greens. It’s got lots of healthy fats that will keep you feeling fuller longer. So for anyone like me that gets hungry every hour at work, it’s a good packed lunch because it leaves me…
