easy hawaiian cold ginger chicken

One of my favorite dishes EVER! And now that I’m vegan, I still make the sauce to serve with seitan or oven roasted cauliflower! You can use this amazing sauce as a sandwich topping, as a dressing for macaroni salad, as a salad dressing, or over grilled pork chops too. So fresh and delicious! chicken…

vegan posole

A cozy, healthy, hearty soup for a rainy day! It’s raining here in the Mississippi River Valley. There are thunderstorms happening all over the state of Minnesota. I tried to walk up to the library and ended up turning around and coming back home. Glad I had my umbrella with me! When I returned home…

big banana brownies

Looking for yet another way to enjoy over ripe bananas? These are SO amazing and so easy to prepare. Big, ooey gooey, fudgy, chocolaty brownies with a hint of banana. What could be better? Note: Use your favorite, light oil in this recipe. Vegetable oil or canola oil are both perfect choices. Don’t be tempted…

cheesy spinach bars

Looking for something to serve for easy breakfasts? This is an awesome recipe. It goes together fast and you just cut it into squares like a cake pan quiche. We like to make breakfast sandwiches by placing a square on a toasted bagel and topping with your favorite breakfast meat. (Sans the meat for my…

tempeh banh mi sandwich

There’s only one thing to do when you’re craving a banh mi sandwich. Ya gotta EAT ONE. Nothing else will satisfy the craving. Since I’m no longer eating pork, I got to work creating a vegan banh mi using tempeh. It was nothing short of outstanding! Be sure to click on the links in this…

vegan nachos

So when I looked at the recipes out there for vegan nachos I was skeptical. The “cheese” starts out with mashed potatoes. How can that possibly turn into cheese? Well, it DOES. Some sort of witchcraft happens when you mix everything together. I can’t explain it. These are the absolute BEST vegan thing I’ve ever…

cheesy veggie nuggets

Ohmygoodness! I was craving McDonald’s chicken nuggets a few days ago when my daughter and her boyfriend brought some home to enjoy with a movie. You have to understand, I never ate chicken nuggets even when I did eat meat, but for some darn reason I couldn’t get them out of my head. Sooooo, I…

mushroom walnut burger

I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect Vegetarian/Vegan burger, and I think it’s finally happened. There are a couple others I love too, but this one is my favorite. It’s so delicious, and so good for you, you can eat a burger every day and not feel guilty. I started by using Mark…

big vegan buddha bowl

This is so fabulous and filling! It’s a fun recipe too! Make the different parts of the bowl, line them up on the counter “bar” style, and let everyone choose their own ingredients, sauces, and toppings. Use vegan ingredients to make this truly vegan, or if you’re not concerned about that, add a little goat…

choc-oat chip peanut butter banana cookies

Okay. These cookies are too good to be true. That doesn’t happen very often in the land where something is: egg free, gluten free, and dairy free. They’re super soft, chewy, and delicious. They’re loaded with dark chocolate (which we all know is health food.) They’re pretty high in protein for a cookie because of…
