Honey Ginger Tofu Quinoa Bowls

Honey Ginger Tofu Quinoa Bowls

These Honey-Ginger Tofu Bowls were the first and only time (to date) that I ate Tofu. I loved it! It wasn’t as good leftover because I did pan fry it so it would get crispy. When I experimented with a 100% vegetarian diet, it was […]

Spanish Black Bean and Plantain Turkey Chili

Edamame Quinoa Stir Fry

Edamame Quinoa Stir Fry

Happy Meatless Monday: Installment #3. This stir fry was super tasty and had tons of protein in it from edamame and quinoa. Being vegetarian now I almost always opt for quinoa instead of rice because it’s much higher in protein. I like rice if it’s […]

Vegetarian Alfredo Bowls

Vegetarian Alfredo Bowls

Chicken and Sausage Pumpkin Casserole

Chicken and Sausage Pumpkin Casserole
