Ginger Cinammon Delicata Squash – Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

I’ve had a squash overload lately and been looking for new things to do besides my usual roasting and souping. I had actually never cooked with delicata squash before, I had only eaten it in restaurants. It’s pretty great too cook with since you don’t need to skin it which is a pain with butternut […]

Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder with a Kick

The secret to the creaminess in this chowder is coconut cream. If you’ve never cooked with it before, it’s a great way to add non-dairy creaminess to soup, curry, desserts, sauces and more. It only has a slight coconut taste. I got mine at Trader Joe’s, but you can also find it on Amazon. To […]

Spiced Vegan Eggplant, Heirloom Tomato and Kale with Quinoa

When you cook eggplant right it’s one of my favorite veggies. Undercooked and it’s one of the worst things to hit your tongue. I really like this recipe because you can let the eggplant continue to simmer, get softer and soak up all the flavors in this mix. The heirloom tomatoes add a sweetness and […]

Easy Vegan Summer Quinoa Salad with Corn and Avocado

This is a simple go to quinoa salad that’s great as a side dish or on it’s own. The flavor combinations are really refreshing and it’s super easy to make. I almost always let it chill so all the elements combine and I like it cold. I also recently discovered that Amazon sells organic quinoa in bulk, which […]

Lemon Basil Hummus

It’s no secret that I love hummus. It’s easy, healthy, delicious and you can create so many different flavor combinations with it (buffalo wing hummus for example). This fresh basil and lemon combination is one of my all time favorites. This same recipe can also work with other herbs like thyme, oregano, or rosemary. I’ll […]

Heirloom Tomato and Fennel Salad in a Jar

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m a huge fan of the salad in a jar concept for prepping salad ahead of time and making it easily portable. This simple salad is refreshing and pairs really well with the citrus basil avocado salad dressing I posted up a couple weeks ago. This is […]

Spicy Kale Chips

Kale chips, kale chips, spicy awesome kale chips. That’s the song you’ll be singing as you snack on these bad boys. In the recipe below I use chipotle salt to add a kick to these chips, but I’ve also made them using regular sea salt and a spice infused olive oil. Either works to give […]

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 […]

Red Bean Red Quinoa Veggie Burgers

Happy Memorial Day! Kicking off the summer it’s time for some grilling, BBQ, sun and fun. A staple of my summer eating is the endlessly adaptable veggie burger. This will be the first of many burger recipes on the blog. The combination of red quinoa and red beans makes this a filling and nutritious way […]
