Dinner

Tostones

 I decided I wanted to try something new and that I’ve never made. So after looking online, I decided to try Tostones. They are made from mashed plantains and are usually deep-fried. I wanted something a bit lighter, so I used only a bit of coconut oil to fry them […]

Buffalo Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

 Sometimes you just need to have hot sauce and tonight was one of those nights. There’s just something about it that satisfies cravings. I decided to make lettuce wraps and just add things to the chickpeas and it tasted wonderful. I love it when just throwing ingredients together make such […]

Watermelon Sandwich with Mint Pesto

 I was craving something refreshing to eat for dinner, but wanted something that didn’t require much work at all. I love the play of sweet and savory, so I figured I would use watermelon as the main part of my meal. Since mint and watermelon go so well together, I […]

Hunan Kung Pao

 Hunan Kung Pao is one of my favorite dishes to eat when I go out, but I needed to come up with a vegan version as most places cook it in a chicken stock. If you’re like me, you like your food spicy, but if you don’t, just add less […]

Crispy Jerk Tofu with Coconut Rice

 UPDATE: I forgot to mention that this IS a spicy dish, if you don’t prefer spice, I highly recommend that you try one of my other recipes! It was a lovely hot day and I was craving Jamaican food so I thought I would try my hand at making this […]

Vegan Zucchini Enchilada Rolls

 Enchiladas have such a great blend of Mexican spices and flavors, however traditionally it has meat in it. It took me awhile to come up with this vegan version, but it was worth the time. I used chickpeas in the place of meat and cooked them in the enchilada sauce. […]

Tofu Noodle Bowl with Pepper Sauce

 I was feeling adventurous today so I tried tofu. I have only cooked with tofu once before and that was years ago. I knew nothing about how to cook it then. This dish is so full of flavor and is amazing!  I’m happy to say that this meal is easy to […]

Ratatouille

 I decided to make Ratatouille for the first time. It is fairly simple to make and it’s visually appealing. The addition of herbs de Provence makes this dish in my opinion.   As you can see, the vegetables are colorful and beautiful. Mix together the sauce and line the dish […]

Tumeric Cauliflower Soup

 It was a rainy day today and I was craving cauliflower soup. When I think of cauliflower soup, I think of comfort and warmth. This soup is full of rich Indian spices without the heat. You could easily add cayenne or chili powder to make it spicy. I usually love […]

Zucchini Salad

 Who else enjoys having a plate full of greens for lunch? I love the taste and texture of raw zucchini so I decided to make that the base of my salad rather than lettuce. What’s even better is how fast it is to make it; which is ideal for busy […]
