Spicy Ketchup

I think most people would agree that Ketchup is good on its own. I used to put it on everything-especially as a kid! Fries, eggs, rice, etc. As I got older, and started experimenting with food, I thought to make a more “adult” version. And here it is! This sauce is so versatile and so…

Kale & Ricotta Naan Pizza

I’ve said this umpteenth times- I Love Pizza! I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t. When I was a kid, my mom ordered pizza almost every Friday. This is a woman who cooked, and still cooks, almost every day! As I got older and began cooking for myself, pizza was the one thing I wanted to…

Oil-Free Walnut Pesto

Traditional basil pesto is made with basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and olive oil. In my recipe I eliminate the oil for a fat-free version. I replace the pine nuts with walnuts simply because I like walnuts better and usually have these on hand. I replace the Parmesan cheese with nutritional yeast to make this recipe vegan and…

Garlicky Alfredo Pasta

Traditional creamy pasta sauces, such as an Alfredo sauce, are super good. However, they are not so good for you. Although I am a vegetarian, I monitor and balance my dairy intake. This recipe is completely vegan and protein based! I blended white beans with some amazing flavors that will satisfy your creamy craving! It’s really…

Greek stuffed Peppers & Cumin Spiced Chickpeas

Greek food is my all-time favorite cuisine. It’s fresh, light and flavorful. I’m always trying to come up with a twist to traditional recipes. I love when it works out, like in this instance! Spiced rice and chickpeas make this recipe go ‘round! This is simple recipe but takes a while to make but only…

Green Bean-Caper Alfredo (V)

I’m big on mixing ingredients that may, or may not, marry well. I’ve had a few fails (of course!) but most times, it works out and I get so excited. Makes me feel like a food genius- of sorts. Let’s talk about the sauce: There are a few recipes out there for veggie based creamy,…

Broccoli & Cheese-Mac&Cheese

I love macaroni and cheese! I don’t eat it as often as I like because 1-the carbs 2-the cheese. One day, I was craving it and decided to experiment with this recipe here. Recently, I posted a recipe for a cheese sauce, which is featured in this recipe! I just added pasta and broccoli for a nice…

Cashewless Vegan Cheese Sauce

Go vegan or go home! Just kidding!! Stay a while. As I’ve said before, I am a proud vegetarian! I am vegetarian mostly because there is no alternative like actual cheese. Besides, many vegan cheeses available on the shelf are processed and have additives. My favorite vegan cheese, however, is Pepper jack shreds by Daiya….

Healthy 20 minute Go-To Pizza

Pizza on Toast?! Yes! …So I was really low on groceries at home because I was going on vacation in a few days and didn’t want to buy groceries- didn’t want to come home to rotting veggies and such in my refrigerator! I used what was in my pantry and fridge to come up with…

Spicy Cauliflower & Garlic Noodles

Lately, cauliflower has been flooding social media as a carb replacer ([mashed] potatoes & rice). Although a delicious substitute, that I myself use, my favorite way to eat cauliflower is roasted! Come to think of it, my favorite way to eat all veggies is roasted! Call me bias, but its m-m-good! Looking at the recipe…
