Rice Paper “Bacon”

When Garren first told me he wanted to try a recipe for an alternative to bacon I couldn’t hide the eye roll. I love our plant based lifestyle but an alternative to bacon? Some things just can’t have a replacement! Or so I thought. When I tried this for the first I was shocked how good it is. The texture and the flavor is so … Continue reading Rice Paper “Bacon”

Corn Bread Pot Pie

If you want a recipe that will make your house smell like you have been slaving away in the kitchen for hours but really requires little work this that recipe! This is so rich in flavor with the perfect mix of savory and sweet. It took everything in me to not eat the leftovers for breakfast and wait till lunch. (But who am I kidding? … Continue reading Corn Bread Pot Pie

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

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. Turmeric has quickly become one of my favorite spices. It adds such a savory element to vegan dishes. Not a huge fan of the say it stains my counter and babies’ faces but the … Continue reading Turmeric and Ginger Red Lentil Soup

Vegan Quesadilla

Before eliminating dairy from our diet one of my favorite things to eat for lunch was a quesadilla with pepper jack cheese dipped in sour cream. Lately I have been missing it and since I don’t believe in depriving myself I had a few last week. It was definitely still good but my stomach wasn’t a big fan. Just a few hours later I felt … Continue reading Vegan Quesadilla

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

Smashed Chickpea Salad

Recently,for some reason, lunch is always the meal I eat the worst during. That “some” reason is the fact that we have been snowed in for a little over a month now and this mama has a big case of cabin fever. By the time nap/quiet time comes around (aka mom’s lunch time) all I want to do is sit on the couch, watch a … Continue reading Smashed Chickpea Salad

Vegan Coconut Chia Seed Breakfast Cookie

Let me set the stage. It’s 7am and my toddler crawls into bed with me and I hand her my phone so she can watch a movie while I try and wake up (or you know… sleep longer). The baby is still peacefully sleeping. Fast forward 45 minutes and the baby just threw up all over the carpet and the toddler starts gagging at the … Continue reading Vegan Coconut Chia Seed Breakfast Cookie

Vegan Breakfast Burritos

We love a good breakfast burrito and since we have been experimenting with tofu we were excited to try it out as an egg substitute. The texture was perfect and and the flavors came together so well in this burrito. It’s also another perfect quick and easy meal to whip up. Ingredients 6 white mushrooms; sliced 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 red bell pepper; sliced … Continue reading Vegan Breakfast Burritos
