Zucchini Pappardelle “Pasta” with a Vegan Pistachio Mint Pesto

I am not gluten free, but I am appreciative of the creativity that it inspires. I’m a fan of the spaghetti squash noodles and these zucchini pappardelle. The way they soak up sauce and can be twisted with a fork and scooped into massive mouthfuls makes them great substitutes for pasta dishes. You only want […]

Gluten Free Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo cauliflower is a pretty consistent vegan and vegetarian favorite for cooking at home and a restaurant appetizer. Most the recipes I found online were using white flour so I thought I would try and make a gluten-free version. I used almond flour for this version, I want to experiment with some other flours that […]

Spaghetti Squash Tacos

I could eat tacos for every meal of the day and not get sick of them (breakfast tacos anyone?). Endless combinations and they are usually small enough where you can try at least 3 different kinds of tacos and feel great about it. I’ve been experimenting with a number of different combos, but usually I […]

Ginger Cinammon Delicata Squash – Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

These pickled red onions are sweet and crunchy with a little kick. […]

Summer time is upon us filled with bodies of water, shining sun and delicious barbecues. This recipe is a healthier twist on the classic bbq side dish, but still just as tasty served with your grilled entrees of choice or on it’s own. The goat cheese stands in for mayo to keeping the creaminess while […]

Fava Bean Dip with Fennel, Onion and Chives

Who doesn’t love good dips, spreads and sauces? I’m a huge fan and they always taste better when you make them fresh at home and it’s so easy to do! You can just take whatever you are craving/have around, add some olive oil and toss it in the food processor to make for a dip. […]

Potato, Mushroom, Cheese Bake (Gratin)

This thing kicks ass. #humblebrag. The cheese, mushrooms and potatoes work so well together it’s hard to stop eating it. Per usual, I baked it in my all purpose cast iron skillet. It works well as a main dish or a rich side dish depending on what kind of mood you are in and where […]
