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…

Easy Taco Salad

Taco Salad — all the same goods, deconstructed! Just a different way to eat one our favorites, and one that is so easy to assemble. It took me 10 minutes to make dinner, which for some reason is a quality I still appreciate even though we have all the time in the world these days…

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…

Crispy Cauliflower with Salsa Verde

Crispy cauliflower with fresh Salsa Verde is a yummy side dish perfect for a normal week night or for serving to guests.

Baked Tofu with Strawberry Salsa

To me, June means strawberries. There’s only one month per year in the Northeast USA that has really good, juicy, sweet strawberries. I don’t trust those mid-winter grocery store strawberries that are almost as big as apples. I wait for the real, beautiful, natural thing and enjoy the heck out of them for those few…

Tempeh Fajitas

We try to have a reasonable amount of variety in our diet, so sometimes dishes that are favorites get forgotten for a little while as we are trying new things. But then we always go back. Like these fajitas. They’re so quick and so delicious, my two main requirements for a successful meal. Tempeh is…

Corn and Black Bean Empanadas

Okay, so I think I made something that’s a cross between an empanada and a hand pie. I chose not to fry them – I baked them instead in an effort to be semi-healthy. And as many vegans know, it’s hard to get golden brown pastry in the oven without using an egg wash. (If…

Vegan Nachos with Cheesy Sauce

Nachos for a party? Duh, of course! Nachos for dinner on a Wednesday? Why the heck not?!! I’m down for some ‘chos anytime! These babies are layered with so many delicious toppings: Spicy black bean crumble Sweet corn Red onion Jalape├▒os Avocado Salsa Vegan cheesy sauce (yep, you read that correctly) Hot sauce Scallion Cilantro…

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…
