One-bowl Vegan Dinner

  I love vegan buddha bowls and how all the tons of goodness melds together in one bowl.  This recipe has it all:  Nutrient dense ingredients, simple but powerful flavors and belly-comforting goodness.  You can swap out the garbanzo beans for kidney or black beans if you prefer and best when served with sautéed greens […]

Vegan Chorizo with Peppers

Before I became a vegetarian for ethical and environmental reasons 28 years ago, chorizo was a food I really enjoyed along with other sausages and bologna and even kielbasas!  I had to grieve the letting go of those foods and focus on finding delight and flavor in all the vegan delicacies I could have.  This […]

Poached Halibut in a Hot & Sour Broth

  True confession.  As an almost vegan, I don’t usually post fish recipes but I do recognize that the vast majority of my readers do eat fish regularly.  Occasionally I will taste fish and this recipe is truly special which is why I want to post it today.   The recipe calls for halibut but chilean […]

Roasted Cauliflower and Potatoes with toasted quinoa and an Avocado/Tofu sauce

I’m pretty obsessed with Cauliflower.  I like it raw, boiled, in rice form and especially as a star of a roasted veggie medley.  In this dish, the cauliflower shines as accompanied with yummy roasted red potatoes, toasted quinoa underneath and a rich and creamy avocado tofu sauce on top.  The sauce can be kept in […]

Soft Tofu with Greens

This is a super simple, super healthy and protein rich meal or snack that you can make any time.  This is the type of tofu that many enjoy in Japanese restaurants as an appetizer or with soup.  The black sesame seeds adds a nice texture and “crust” to the dish.  In many asian cultures, a dish like […]

Spinach/Feta Polenta Pie

Everyone loves pie of some kind right?  For me, beyond the apple, cherry and pecan favorites, there is something about a salty savory pie that is very comforting and delicious, especially as the weather gets a bit nippier.  The creaminess of polenta coupled with the salty bite of feta marries very well in this dish. […]

Portobella Sloppy Joes

Consider a roasted portabella cap in place of a bun on your vegetarian Sloppy Joes for a […]
