Quinoa Burger

A veggie burger that’s not flimsy or mushy and loaded with flavor? You found it! That’s this veggie burger here! Most restaurants have made it convenient for vegetarians and vegans to eat comfortably by, most often than not, offering a veggie burger. I’ve tried many veggie burger at this point. Not always but plenty of…

Chocolate Green Smoothie

Chocolate in a green smoothie? Yes! Why not?! One day I woke up with the biggest craving for chocolate. I knew I wanted to start my day with a green smoothie so I figured, I’d add chocolate to my smoothie. The trick was figuring out how to get it sweet without too much fruit and…

Creamy Caper Dressing

I love the fresh flavors in Mediterranean food. Capers are from Greece, by the Mediterranean Sea, and are completely underrated. Capers are brined or dried and have a lemon, olive, salty flavor. Growing up, I ate plenty of olives but never heard of capers. Naturally, I love them! (Click here for another recipe with capers)….

Creamy [Coconut] Bacon Brussell Sprouts

It’s officially autumn and what better way to break it in than Brussell Sprouts?! I don’t remembering having Brussell Sprouts before I became a vegetarian (in June 2013). I really did not know what I was missing. I love Brussell Sprouts now. Changing my diet really opened my mind and palette to so many great…

[Loaded] White “Cheddar” Broccoli Soup (Vegan)

Cheddar Broccoli Soup is one of my favorite soups to enjoy. As I was learning how to cook and the more questions I asked at restaurants, I soon discovered that most cheddar broccoli soups are made with chicken broth! In addition to the chicken broth, heavy cream and loads of cheese is used. So, of…

Heirloom-Basil Spaghetti

Summer is almost over but it is still upon us. Let’s embrace it! This is a super easy, incredibly delicious dish. For me, vine ripen tomatoes and grapes tomatoes are nostalgic. When I was a kid, my grandmother had a garden. Yes, in north Philadelphia, she had a garden! It was a community garden in…

Vegan Parmesan

Cashews are really a unicorn food. Well, so is nooch (nutritional yeast). And by unicorn, I mean magical! Together nooch and cashews make a mock Parmesan cheese. How?! I don’t know exactly but I am amazed! Adding sea salt gives you that sharp cheese taste you, perhaps, crave (or once craved & loved) and a…
