Vegan Tzatziki

When we lived in Manchester, New Hampshire there was this gyro place ( Gyro Spot ) downtown that we would walk to more than I care to admit. Their chicken gyro is INSANE. If you are ever in Manchester GO THERE. You will not be disappointed.  Since changing our lifestyle to a plant based diet we have been searching for a way to make a satisfying vegan … Continue reading Vegan Tzatziki

Turmeric and Ginger Red Lentil Soup

Well it’s officially March which hopefully means SPRING is just around the corner. Hopefully this is the last hot soup I post for a while simply because it won’t be needed.

This is a perfect lunch! Ingredients 2 Avocados 1 head of butter lettuce 1 Red Red Bell Pepper 1 Orange Bell Pepper 1 can Black … Continue reading Mexican Chopped Salad

Vegan Roasted Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Soup

Fall is my favorite season to cook in. It’s cooling off outside so the oven doesn’t make your house unbearably warm and I love the way fresh bread or fall treats make your home smell delicious. This soup is ridiculously easy and so tasty. My 2.5 year old and 6 month old both loved it, even though my oldest kept telling me she “doesn’t like red … Continue reading Vegan Roasted Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Soup
