Artichoke Arugula Salad with Sundried Tomato Dressing

This is probably the best salad I made so far- flavorwise. I wish I could say it just the dressing but combined with the salad ingredients, it’s so delicious. It’s the perfect summer salad and can be paired with anything. I’ve made this for several people and everyone loved it. It’s chopped goodness that is…

Angel-Capered Cauliflower

  Roasted veggies, specifically, cauliflower are a fan favorite. Even if someone thinks they don’t like cauliflower, give them roasted cauliflower and they just may love it! I like making people into believers. Especially when I hear “I don’t like that!” or “Too many vegetables on one plate is yucky!” Challenge accepted! This dish is…

Give me a Beet… Salad!

I only had beets once in my life- that I can remember- before I became a vegetarian. From what I recall, I didn’t like them! As I continued to do more and more research about what foods to eat, beets seemed to keep popping up. Beets are known to have Potassium, magnesium, fiber, iron, vitamins…

Pizza-Time Salad Dressing/Sauce

I can’t express how much I love pizza! It is hands down my favorite food and I don’t know why. I love it so much, I had to make a salad dressing that tasted like it! I hope you enjoy it too. This can also be used in place of marinara sauce when making pizza!…

Crispy BBQ Coco-Breaded Tempeh

This is a great dinner recipe! The protein in the tempeh is a great source to get amino acids (what protein is made up of). And come on, who doesn’t love BBQ!?! This can be paired with a crisp green salad (click here for salad pairing idea) or lightly stemmed green beans! Below are 3…

Roasted Butternut Squash Topped with Brussels Sprouts

I want to first apologize for the picture quality. I made this recipe earlier this year (in January 2014- when I started blogging and taking photos). I was not good with angles and lighting. Though I am still amateur, I am better at this photographing business. Enough of that! Back to the more important thing-…

Greek-style Mac & Cheese

Mac and cheese is an all-time favorite. This recipe is an inspiration from both the vegan and vegetarian world because I use nutritional yeast and feta cheese. Some people would argue this is not a not mac and cheese because of the non-cheese ingredients included. Some may call it a casserole. Call it what you…

Warm Zucchini Spring Mix & Cucumber-Mint Salad

I eat a lot of salad! I am constantly thinking of new ways to enjoy a salad so that I don’t get sick of it (if that is even possible for me). Generally, I eat 2 salads a day. Before lunch and before dinner. Sometimes I eat a giant salad for lunch. Yup, in a big Tupperware…

Saving Bucks!

Saving money is almost everyone’s priority. Most people believe you have to be rich to be a vegetarian. As a post-college student, who put herself through school, I understand! I try to stretch my bills as best I can. I also try to set a monthly budget and stay in that budget each month. I’ve…

Garlic coconut noodle with string beans

I love coconut anything! Thai cuisine uses a lot of coconut milk in their food. I thought it was strange at first but when I gave it a try, I was not sorry. Pad Thai Noodle may be new to you but they are cheap and can be found in the Asian food section at…
