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…

Creamy Butter Beans with Spinach Pesto

I am always searching for a new way to enjoy beans, since they are a top protein source for vegan/vegetarians and we eat them so often! NYTimes Cooking inspired me with one of their recipes a few weeks ago. Their idea of a creamy white bean balanced by a pop of green freshness really appealed to…

Kale Quinoa Salad

Healthy, easy, and plant-based: what more could you want in a meal? Oh, lots of protein, super foods, and a touch of sweet you say? Not a problem! We got all of that too! Please please make this salad because you will never look at kale and quinoa (the fad super foods of our generation…

Sweet Potato & Spinach Lentils

Sometimes I like to mix together a bunch of my favorite things and see what happens. In this case, it’s sweet potatoes, fresh spinach, and slow simmered green lentils. It turned out to be a great combination and a super easy two-pot dinner that we will definitely be making again (and again)! The key is…

Quinoa Bowl with Corn Salsa

I love a big bowl of goodness. I especially love when that goodness includes beans and salsa. There’s never a bad time for rice, beans, and salsa. This healthy bowl uses quinoa instead of rice to amp up the protein, black beans, and a homemade corn salsa that is an easy and delicious way to…

Peanut Sauce Tofu

It’s been a crazy work week for me, and hubs has so kindly taken over dinner duties the past few days. So I’m proud to say that this is a guest post from my boo – he chose the dish, he cooked it, he photographed it, without any input from me! I think this blog…

Lentil Bolognese with Zoodles

I don’t have a spiralizer and I don’t mind because my grocery store almost always has pre-spiraled veggies available to buy for a reasonable price. It saves me time, mess, and physical effort and means I can spend more time and energy on the sauce! Although with this lentil bolognese sauce, it hardly takes any…

Rice Bowl with Kale and Radish Slaw

Something about spring makes me want to eat healthier, whether it’s because I have to wear a bathing suit soon or because I’m naturally outside exercising more and building good health juju. This kale and radish slaw is a delicious and easy dish to whip up and pair with lots of different meals. Here it’s…

Sloppy Joes with Cole Slaw

Everyone loved Sloppy Joe day at school. I fondly remember the frenzy of the Sloppy Joe as a kid, how they dripped down your hands and made a huge mess – what could be more fun than that? Hubs has never had an actual Sloppy Joe (it’s an American thing, fun fact: originally from Sioux…

Spicy Marinara with White Beans

This semi-homemade spicy marinara will become your go-to pasta sauce, I promise you. A little kick of thai red curry paste heightens all of the flavors of the tomato sauce, and will literally “spice up” pasta night! And it’s so simple to make.  Even if you don’t usually like spicy food, I encourage you to…
