BBQ Jackfruit Pizza with Mango Salsa

For this dish I used a lot of store bought help, since both the pizza and the BBQ jackfruit parts of the “BBQ Jackfruit Pizza” are…. store bought. I wish I was more sorry, but I’m not because it was dang delicious and one of the easiest dinners to pull off at the end of…

Vegan Pulled Pork Tacos

Tell me something that isn’t better in a tortilla. I’ll wait. If you love tacos like me, you’ll love these “pulled pork” tacos made with lentils and shredded carrots. They’re great to serve when friends are over. Just make a big batch of filling, prep the toppings, and let your guests assemble away! This pulled…

Mushroom Sliders

Aren’t these babies cute? I just love a tiny version of a food favorite, like a mac and cheese bite or a shot glass of soup, and especially the slider! I’ve been meaning to make these tiny veggie burgers for a while now, and am so glad I finally did it. They are as delicious…

Broccoli Tacos

Some people might think I’m crazy for taking such a sacred thing as a taco and filling it with….broccoli? I think broccoli sometimes gets a bad reputation, but it’s actually one of my favorite vegetables when cooked correctly. I absolutely love broccoli when it’s roasted and steamed (Chinese restaurants always steam it perfectly, am I…

BBQ Jackfruit with Carrots and Corn Muffins

Jack fruit is kind of a vegan wonder food. It comes in a can, and when drained and shredded it resembles the texture of pulled pork, making it absolutely perfect for barbecue sauce! Make sure to buy the green jack fruit in water (not oil or brine) to get the right taste. This meal only…

Cashew Crusted Tofu

This may as well be a Trader Joe’s website recipe because it is based on two my favorite TJ products: super firm tofu and raw cashew pieces. I am such a fan of TJ’s because they have so many great vegan products. Their super firm tofu is amazing because it saves time from the pressing…

Tofu Kebabs and Corn with Basil Butter

Memorial Day Weekend is the official start of summertime as made apparent by the crazy traffic heading down to the Jersey Shore from New York City, the (sometimes) warm temperatures, the three-day weekend, and most importantly…the BBQs! My family typically gathers together at my parents’ home for the long weekend. They live close to the…

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

Veggie. Burgers. Two words that bring to mind summertime, barbecues, and maybe THE most broadly accepted form of meatless eating. Every restaurant seems to carry a veggie burger on their menu, even if it is their only vegetarian option, and there are so many varieties and brands of veggie burgers in grocery stores now that…

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

One of my favorite comfort foods ever in my pre-vegan days was a good pulled pork sandwich. There was nothing like the smokey flavor and the fall apart texture of this delicious festival food. When I became a vegan two years ago, I was on the hunt for something that could satiate my barbecue cravings….
