best vegan pumpkin bread

It’s that time of year again! The time of year when everything is pumpkin spice and everything nice. I love it when we turn the calendar to September and the kids are back in school. My kids are done with school now, at least for the time being, and it’s a bit strange, but I…

best vegan fried rice

I had a craving for fried rice like the kind you get at the Chinese buffet so I made some for breakfast today. I can’t believe I hadn’t made it before this. It was SO easy and delicious! Tofu really is a magic ingredient. It’s better than eggs, because no weird, sulfury, eggy flavor, no…

restaurant review: the naughty greek

We had an absolutely AMAZING lunch at The Naughty Greek in St. Paul. I marked all of the photos above so you can see the vegan options. I included my daughter Gracie’s salad because any salad can be made vegan at The Naughty Greek. Gracie’s salad was pictured with the feta added. I adore the…

vegan crunchwrap supreme

This is my version of the Taco Bell classic. It’s much healthier and tastier than the original, if I do say so myself. What you need to know about crunchwraps before making your own is that they’re versatile, and they’re comprised of a melty, cheesy, protein layer, a crunchy layer, and finally a fresh layer.…

best vegan “egg” salad

I did it! I perfected vegan “egg” salad! It’s obviously not made with eggs, but extra firm tofu is the perfect fake out in this recipe. It’s easier than traditional egg salad because there’s no boiling and peeling involved. Just open up a 14 oz. container of your favorite extra firm tofu, press it for…

This deluxe tofu scramble is loaded with tasty ingredients and lean protein. for the potatoes: 2 lb. baby potatoes, unpeeled and quartered (any type) 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon sea salt…

garlic scape basil pesto

It’s definitely pesto season! This will be the third giant batch I’ve made this summer. My first batch was the traditional basil with garlic and pine nuts, my second was a delicious batch with the addition of fresh garden chives (from our lovely friends Josh and Doro,) and the third was this amazing concoction. I…

grilled korean bbq portobello mushroom sandwich

This hearty sandwich features the “meaty” Portobello mushroom. These mushrooms are perfect grilled over charcoal or in a grill pan on your stove top. I love the smoky sweetness of Korean BBQ sauce. If you have a favorite brand of Korean BBQ sauce, and want a shortcut, just use that in place of the homemade…

vegan air fryer chimichangas

Seriously easy, delicious chimichangas you make in your air fryer! They get super crunchy and only take about 8 minutes to cook. I made a batch for me and Jeff one day for lunch and he loved them. I like to make my own taco seasoning for these, but feel free to use the pre-made…
