bombdiggity chickpea salad sandwich

I’ve taken chickpea salad to the next level. This is perfect for those days when you’re craving a really good sandwich and are perhaps missing the days when you ate tuna salad and chicken salad. Although I find the idea of eating animals revolting now, I completely understand the nostalgia and emotions connected to the…

california salad with banana dressing {vegan}

Here’s a salad that makes me happy! The colors, textures, and flavors are gorgeous. And that banana dressing is going to knock your socks off. This is my vegan riff on an old favorite. This version is healthier and so much better, in my opinion. You can prepare your tofu triangles any way you like.…

cheesy corn biscuits {vegan}

We love some sort of bread or biscuits with our soups, stews, and chilis. Biscuits are probably our first choice because they’re so versatile and easy to prepare. You can whip up a batch in no time, and choose a flavor that will perfectly accompany whatever you are eating. We had these with chili and…

IKEA copycat veggie balls

I made it my personal quest to recreate the IKEA veggie balls and make them delicious as well as healthy. Although the original IKEA vegetable balls are already pretty healthy (and of course vegan), I think if one desires to continue their veggie ball habit they might want to switch to a recipe with no…

cashew cream

If you like creamy dressings, dessert sauces, mix-ins for stuff like macaroni and potato salad, but you don’t want to consume copious amounts of oil, this is the recipe for you. Ever since I started eating a Whole Foods Plant Based (WFPB) diet, I have made a big jar of this every week. Everyone loves…

one-pot pasta e ceci (chickpea pasta)

Pasta e ceci is a wonderful, healthy, traditional Italian dish that never calls for meat so it’s perfect for vegans and vegetarians. In this recipe I include a version where I cook the vegetables in oil before adding the rest of the ingredients, and I also include a no-oil version. Both are wonderful, but the…

vegan sausage rolls

Here’s another little, savory nibble I made for game day this year and I’m just getting around to sharing the recipe now. Sausage rolls! These were amazing, and so easy to prepare in my air fryer. You could do this with vegan hot dogs and dip them in ketchup, but I really like this version.…

crock pot navy bean soup & dumplings

This hearty, delicious soup is so comforting and so easy to make! I throw everything in the Crock Pot and set it on low if I’m going to be out of the house. When I need it be done in 6 hours I set the slow cooker to the high setting. A half hour before…

chai latte smoothie

This healthy recipe combines your morning cup of tea and breakfast all in one. It’s so delicious you could serve it as dessert. Chai is my go-to beverage in the autumn and winter months. The spiciness is comforting, warming, and wonderful. Just the word, chai, brings to mind cozy blankets and slippers on a snowy…

vegan cream cheese wontons

I don’t know about you, but I love cream cheese wontons. I used to eat them Crab Rangoon style, but since going vegan I’ve been making these little yummies and don’t miss the other version one bit. I made a big batch of these bad boys for Super Bowl Sunday, but they’re good any day.…
