BBQ Cauli-Chick’n Bites

I was oh so skeptical about trying the cauliflower “wings” that started trending. I wanted to try them at restaurants but they only make buffalo flavor. Confession- I never liked buffalo sauce! Yes. I’m one of those weirdos. I’m also one of the weirdos that does not like mayo but that’s for another time! Point…

Purple Pad Thai (V, GF, OF)

This is my second Pad Thai recipe. However it has been 3 years since I shared it (See it here)! This one is different because I use tofu and had a tomato-miso base. This Purple Pad Thai is, well, purple and mad with a lime-tamari base. Both equally delicious! The flavor in this is booming and…

Stewed Beans (Puerto Rican Style)-Habichuelas Guisadas

Habichuelas Guisadas, or Stewed Beans, were one of the main staples in my household growing up! My mom and grandmother often made arroz con gandules (rice and pigeon peas) but this was a close second! I remade this recipe using my version of Sofrito and Sazon! I included a not-chick’n cube, which can be found…

Banh Mi Sandwich

I have no idea what an actual Banh Mi sandwich tastes like but this version is pretty darn good! A traditional Banh Mi sandwich, which is a Vietnamese sandwich, has meat and pickled veggies- none of those are included here. Pickling veggies isn’t something I’ve experimented with yet but plan to soon at some point….

Cilantro & Spicy Mayo (Raw & Nut-free Versions)

Oh, that good ol’ mayo! I feel like I am the only person on the planet who does not like mayonnaise! People are shocked when “I say I don’t like mayo”. Yes, even vegan versions. Some actually smell like actual mayo and to me that is the worse part! People make comments about sandwiches being…

Jalapeno, Cashew Queso

Taco Tuesday inspired this recipe! The truth is, it is rare that I have tacos, or some form of tacos, on Tuesday. Am I alone?! No matter what day of the week, this Jalapeno, Cashew Queso is ready for you next taco night! It’s creamy, spicy and tastes like traditional queso. Personally, foods that are…

Baked Wonton Ravioli with Cashew Alfredo

When I found vegan wonton wrappers, I was too excited! This is one of the recipe creations I came up with. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw me make these in my instastory. Here’s the official recipe. Most of my recipes are experimental but I right down the measurements as I go along….

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)….

Pumpkin-Spiced Sweet Potato

The Pumpkin Spice craze is everywhere! Funny thing, Pumpkin Spice is available year around. Sure, you’d have to make it yourself but who doesn’t love a good DIY!? Keeping up with autumn’s trend, I present to you, Pumpkin-Spiced Sweet Potatoes! Personally, I love, love, love almond butter. I might actually eat too much of it!…

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…
