September may be here, but I’m not quite ready to let go of Summer yet… So here’s one hurrah for cookouts and warm weather comfort foods! These instant pot vegan baked beans are quick, easy, naturally sweetened, and FULL of flavor. Plus, they are a great dish for every season. From sunny summer picnics to cold winter days, this is one comfort food recipe you’ll want to have handy….
Everyone needs a go-to salad that can be made at a moment’s notice and pairs well with almost any meal, right? You’re in luck – this napa cabbage salad with lemon vinaigrette is just that kind of salad!
A spin off of your more traditional creamy slaw, this cabbage salad is fresh, crunchy, slightly tangy, and satisfying. It pairs perfectly with Asian dishes, your favorite summer barbecue or cook-out, or almost any other meal for that matter….
If you’re like me, you’d rather be outside in the sunshine than inside cooking. And if that’s the case, I have the perfect meal for you! This easy vegetable fried rice is a fast and nutritious meal. And the best part is that it only requires one pan! (Yay for less dishes!)…
Hey everyone!! Summer was a little late in coming up north where we live, but the heatwave this weekend left no doubt in our mind that it has arrived. Add high humidity to the high temps, and it’s a wonder we didn’t all melt. Oh, and did I mention we don’t have air conditioning? Thankfully it’s dropped back to “normal” temps again, and hopefully for the rest of the States, too!
The hot weather had me making some of my favorite fresh recipes, and I could hardly wait to share this one with you! If you are looking for a quick, easy and delicious summer meal (and who isn’t?!) I have just the solution to your summer meal planning quandary: this Chickpea Chicken Style Salad!…
If you’re looking for an easy, yummy, healthy veggie to add to a meal, look no further! These Oven Roasted Asparagus are the perfect side and are ready in under 30 minutes.
When I was growing up, my dad always asked my mom to make asparagus (or, AS-pa-RA-gus, as he called it). Mom used to saute it in butter until it was tender and the ends were crispy. It practically melted in your mouth – SO good. But not exactly the healthiest. 😉 Thankfully, we can make them a little healthier without compromising the flavor by roasting them in the oven!…
Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s been exceptionally cold in our part of the country the last several days (cold equals -20ºF with windchill…!), so I’ve been making a lot of comfort foods. Just because it’s cold outside, doesn’t mean we can’t be extra warm and cozy inside, right? 🙂
One dish I’ve been making a LOT this winter are these YUMMY quick and easy roasted veggies! They are so flavorful, and pair perfectly with almost any meal. Plus, it’s a good feeling knowing that we are stocking up on healthy foods in the meantime….
Popcorn is a staple in our home… It’s hard to find an easier, faster, yummier snack! And this Cheesy Dill Popcorn Seasoning really takes it to a new level.
I grew up eating home-made popcorn several times a week, and now I make sure to always have a bag of kernels in my freezer. We especially like to pair a big bowl of popcorn with fresh fruit smoothies and yummy bread or scones for a light and easy supper option. Plus, it’s a great way to feed friends when they come over to visit!…
Mac and Cheese seems to be a staple in the diet of most average kids (at least in America). I remember standing on a kitchen chair so I could stir the butter, milk, and cheese packet into my Kraft mac and cheese as a kid. I also remember my Aunt’s incredibly yummy homemade mac and cheese (still working on recreating that one…). And I remember some not-so-good attempts at making a vegan version (which usually ended up clumpy and tasting a lot like the pimentos that made it orange).
However, I’ve also had some incredible vegan mac and cheese. And let’s just say, I really hope that this recipe makes it on your list of favorites!
Something I’ve missed since becoming vegan is cheese. So when a teacher in high school made a cheese sauce that almost perfectly resembled nacho cheese, I was floored. And kept going back for more. 😉 I’ve been working on tweaking and perfecting a recipe since then, and am very happy to share this truly unbelievable vegan cheese sauce with you!
It’s creamy, smooth, melty, and savory. And the best part is that it’s FULL of veggies – which means that you don’t have to feel one bit guilty when eating [lots of] it….
I love a good ranch dressing… On salad, pizza, burgers, mac and cheese… You get the picture. Since becoming vegan, however, I’ve been hard-pressed to find a vegan ranch that I really like! So, I set out to fix the problem once and for all… Allow me to introduce the BEST homemade vegan ranch!
This ranch works great as a dip or a dressing. Thick, creamy, tangy, herby… It hits the spot. Not only is it yummy, it’s SUPER easy to make and includes 9 simple ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard or fridge. Plus, it is SO much cheaper to make your own than to buy a pre-made vegan dressing….
