Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

The base for this soup is so rich with a cheesy flavor you won’t miss the actual cheese at all. When we first started this plant based journey I never imagined food could taste this good with out cheese. Even the baby loved this soup. (Any way to sneak some veggies into your kids is a big win.) Serve this with crusty bread and you … Continue reading Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

Garlic Herb White Bean Dip

This is a super simple recipe to make that gives a big bunch. Perfect as an appetizer or to bring to a party. We ended up eating it for dinner! My littles LOVED this, once they ran out of things to dip in it they ate it by the spoon full!   Ingredients 2 cans cannellini or great northern beans 3 tbsp minced garlic 1 … Continue reading Garlic Herb White Bean Dip

Yam and Butter Bean Stew

Something I … Continue reading Yam and Butter Bean Stew

Roasted Chickpea Gyro

Ingredients 2 cans chickpeas; rinsed 1 tbsp turmeric 1 … Continue reading Roasted Chickpea Gyro

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

Vegan Pasta Primavera

Remember that time I said mexican food is my weakness…. well my other weakness is cheesy, gluttonous pasta. (oh and chocolate…. I have a lot of weaknesses…) Like I have also mentioned before, dairy and I aren’t on the greatest of terms. I still indulge but wanted to find something to satisfy the craving. Have you heard of nutritional yeast? I used it in my … Continue reading Vegan Pasta Primavera

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
