Tikka Masala Vegan Pizza

Tikka Masala Vegan Pizza

PIZZA. It’s great. Really…I miss the traditional doughy-cheesy greasy goodness I can no longer eat without severely upsetting my stomach. But making my own pizza is a game changer. It’s definitely not the same, I’ll be the first to admit that. However, when you get […]

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

Spanish Black Bean and Plantain Turkey Chili

This is one of my favorite original creations lately. I took several different chili ideas and morphed them into one. This is because I wanted to make chili but something different than what I usually make. I wanted something new. So my list of ideas […]

Vegan Mediterranean Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Vegan Mediterranean Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

After 2 months of vegetarian meals I can confidently say these Mediterranean stuffed sweet potatoes were my favorite vegetarian meal…EXCEPT for maybe a tie with one of the Indian dishes that I made. There were several. I feel like I had some sort of Indian food every […]

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 […]

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

As I transitioned to being a vegetarian I while also being the main cook of the apartment I was playing with meals that could easily be “just add meat” meals. Things I could make for Justin and I that he could then cook meet separately […]

Meatless Monday: Chickpea Thai Peanut Veggie Burgers

Meatless Monday: Chickpea Thai Peanut Veggie Burgers

Happy Monday! I’ve been busy making my own vegetarian recipes lately so I’ll be rolling out a Meatless Monday theme here for several weeks. These Thai peanut veggie burgers weren’t my first veggie burgers. In fact, I have made two different veggie burgers – both […]

Orange Chicken and Cauliflower Fried Rice

Orange Chicken and Cauliflower Fried Rice

I revamped this post because I wanted to take new (better) photos for it. I actually used to call it “crockpot orange chicken” because I did cook it in the crockpot the first time – but only the chicken. The rest was on the stove […]
