Roasted Garlic Spinach Artichoke Dip

When I think of traditional Spinach Artichoke Dips, I think of deliciousness, but also think of the very high fat content.  There’s just so much cheese, and then, cream cheese, and maybe, probably, sometimes, sour cream?!  I wanted to come up with a plant based variety that didn’t just swap out the package of dairy cheese for…

Sun-Dried Tomato Lentil Wheatballs

Lentils, toasted walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon peel, spelt, a little bit of oregano, a little bit of parsley, and some torn spinach.  Delicious, rustic, homemade “wheat”-balls!  Perfect for pasta night topped with your favorite marinara.  Tasty on a hoagie bun topped with sauce and melty cheese.  Or if you’re feeling especially ambitious, make them according to…

The Green Jersey Burrito

Without Fabio Aru competing in the Tour de France this year, we’ve gotten behind Slovak star, Peter Sagan.  Or I should say, I have gotten behind Peter Sagan, because my husband has always liked him.  Sagan’s a beast, especially when it comes to sprinting.  He is fun to watch!  Plus, when he makes his way to…

Vegan Baconed Chickpea Salad with Ranch Dressing

Stuffed Red and Green Peppers

Red peppers, green peppers, red lentils, barley (or short grain brown rice!), dried currants, and a bountiful amount of fresh herbs.  Stuffed peppers exist in cuisines from around the world, and this recipe takes inspiration from the Persian classic, Dolmeh Felfel, a stuffed pepper dish that is fresh, hearty, and incredibly delicious.   While I had…

Pasta Marinara

What could be easier to make than marinara?!  The ingredients are so simple, and it cooks up fast.  The most important thing is buying “good” canned tomatoes.  I’m thinking of brands like Pomo, Mutti, or San Marzano. Or if your garden has been generous, make your own tomato puree, and cook up loads of this…

Grilled BBQ Soy Curl Quesadillas

If you are a follower of the blog, you know how much I love grilling and soy curls.  This super easy recipe brings the two worlds together. BBQ sauce, soy curls, green peppers, red pepper, red onion and a healthy amount of plant based cheese sandwiched between two fresh tortillas, toasted to perfection and topped…

Vegan Shells and Cheese

On very rare occasions, my mother would purchase Velveeta Shells and Cheese.  We were a Kraft Mac and Cheese household, but this didn’t change my love for Velveeta Shells and Cheese.  I was all about the creamy, smooth sauce! Today’s recipe takes vegan shells and cheese to the next level.  The vegan cheese sauce is…
