Vegan Buddha Bowl

May 18, 2011
Vegan Buddha Bowl

Lately, I’ve been such a hummus junky. I’m constantly dipping raw vegetables, especially carrots and cucumbers, as a snack or small meal. I’ve even found that if I’m craving something sweet, hummus and carrots does the trick. I know hummus is hardly a sweet treat, but for some reason, it’s been working for me as…

Vegan Yum Yum Stuffed Delicata Squash

November 23, 2010

When I made my Top 10 Vegan Cookbooks list, I realized I hadn’t broken out the Vegan Yum Yum in awhile.  I flipped through the book and planned several dishes for the week, but most of them were skipped in an effort to find effortless dishes to avoid standing in the kitchen for long while…

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

Perhaps I enjoyed the vibrancy of Asian Fusion‘s dishes or perhaps I’m just trying to compensate for these solid grey clouds that have taken residence over our home, but even when moving to another cookbook, I chose colorful.  It certainly isn’t primavera here, but I couldn’t help but be drawn to the simplicity of Quinoa…

Vegan Chipotle Yams And Zucchini With Quinoa

I created this spicy vegan recipe over the weekend and we absolutely love it!  It’s the perfect “between seasons” dish while we’re in limbo between summer and fall.  The colors of the vegetables are just so vibrant against the quinoa, and we all know how much I love a pretty meal!  The adobo sauce can bring…

Happy Herbivore’s Zucchini Muffins And Mango Vegan Pizza

July 13, 2010

This weekend was so busy, but I did have some time to make a few good meals.  You know me- food is a priority!  Saturday morning I made Happy Herbivore’s newest recipe post, Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins.  They were nice and spicy, and super moist.  Yeah, I know, I hate that word too, but in…

Curry, Vegan Fried Okra, And A Quiz

June 8, 2010

I know fried okra isn’t exactly healthy, but it’s so good.  And easy to make vegan!  As a side dish to last night’s dinner, I used this recipe, halved it, and made vegan buttermilk by adding a little vinegar to soy milk and letting it sit for 10 minutes.  Oh, and I used far less…

Catching Up: Vegan Pasta, Vegan Sushi, Vegan Quinoa

May 9, 2010

After a long weekend, I’m back to share some tastiness.  My mom and her boyfriend came home from vacation Friday afternoon, so I spent a day catching up with them before making the drive home.  For the road I picked up another Starbucks frappuccino, this time with extra coffee.  Hey, it’s hard to resist now…

Obsessed With Roasted Vegetables

April 13, 2010

You’d think since it’s getting hotter outside, cranking my oven up to 400 and some degrees would be the last think on my mind.  I’ve never claimed to make sense.  Anyway, I’ve been completely obsessed with roasted veggies lately.  Broccoli, roots, green beans, if I can roast it I will.  Tonight, I sliced and roasted…

Vegan Asparagus Alfredo With Red Quinoa

April 11, 2010

Along with getting a nice amount of time in the sunshine today, I had lots of good food!  For lunch I revived one of my summertime favorites, the avocado tomato sandwich.  This delicious sandwich is simply a thick tomato slice and half an avocado on a toasted and vegan-buttered flat bread bun.  I also made…

Vegan Steamed Veggie And Adzuki Bean Quinoa

February 18, 2010

I love making up big pots of things like this not only because they make awesome leftovers, but because they’re simple enough to add this or that and completely change the dish to something new the next day.  For example, last night I ate this as a simply and fresh vegan quinoa dish with just…
