Roasted Greens Buddha Bowl

We have officially been in our new house for 5 months now; which means it’s time I stop using moving as an excuse to not add this little blog of mine. I have an even greater appreciation for living plant based after a few weeks of falling off the wagon. Dairy DESTROYS my insides and eating too much meat starts to slow me down, causes … Continue reading Roasted Greens Buddha Bowl

Vegan Crusty Soup Bread

I don’t know how your winter’s are going but ours have been one snowstorm after another. Before moving to Idaho I had friends and family assure me that it snowed very little in the Boise area and even when it did it would be melted by the next afternoon. Lies. All lies. I will give them the benefit of the doubt as they are also … Continue reading Vegan Crusty Soup Bread

Vegan Black Bean and Corn Tacos

Mexican cuisine is probably our favorite kind of food; I decided to dedicate this week to to two amazing vegan and one vegetarian mexican dishes. These tacos take 15 minutes tops to put together and are ridiculously good. They are incredibly filling so you won’t miss the meat. Ingredients 1 can (16 oz) Black Beans 1.5 cups corn 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 can (4 … Continue reading Vegan Black Bean and Corn Tacos

Vegan Italian Orzo Soup

I have never made orzo before but when I saw this recipe on Gimmie Some Oven I knew I needed to try it. As usual I adapted it to fit our family (or rather pantry) and I love how turned out. Blair said, “This is yummy,” so it was a winner all the way around. Ingredients 2 tbsp olive oil 2 Carrots peeled and diced … Continue reading Vegan Italian Orzo Soup

Vegetarian Enchilada Soup

If you are anything like us, you ate way to much yesterday and are desperately in need of something light. Thankfully light doesn’t have to be bland. This soup basically tastes like you blended up a garden, in the best possible way. It’s not vegan but is vegetarian! We have a blendtec so you can make (and heat) the soup right in there. If you … Continue reading Vegetarian Enchilada Soup

Mexican Chopped Salad

We don’t do salads often because I find without meat, it’s a lot harder to get full from them. Since this one has avocado, black beans and a rich creamy dressing it does a good job at filling you up. 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

Red Lentil Curry

Blair now asks for “Curry”, meaning this dish, all the time. She devoured this. I love watching her try new foods and developing a love for different cuisines. This is such an easy dish to throw together last minute! I adapted this recipe from one I found at RealSimple. Ingredients¬† 3 tbsp canola oil 2 tbsp fresh ginger 2 tsp minced garlic 8 green onions … Continue reading Red Lentil Curry

Vegan Red Thai Curry

We have been loving curries recently. My daughter and I are big babies when it comes to anything spicy so I tweak my curries to be more sweet and savory opposed to spicy and sweet. This is a favorite so I hope you enjoy it! Be sure to check out the vegan naan bread recipe I posted earlier this week. It goes perfectly with this … Continue reading Vegan Red Thai Curry

Easy Vegan Naan Bread

When it comes to eating curry I don’t think there is anything better than warm naan bread on the side. I have always been lazy and just bought some at the store but decided to try my hand at making my own. I tried a few different recipes and ended up adapting/combining quite a few of them to make this vegan version. Blair and I … Continue reading Easy Vegan Naan Bread
