  I recently received an Instant Pot as a birthday gift and I am loving it! I’ve been using it on a weekly basis, testing and trying different recipes, trying to find a version that I love and know that you’ll want to make again and […]

Creamy Vegan Zoodles with Asapragus

Creamy Vegan Zoodles with Asapragus

When Zoodles first become the new “in food” to eat, I wasn’t a fan. They didn’t fill me up and in my opinion, they weren’t at all like pasta. They didn’t taste like pasta and I didn’t feel like I had eaten pasta. I had […]

Creamy Mint Avocado Pasta

Creamy Mint Avocado Pasta

I’m going to be honest here. I’ve never been someone who uses mint very often in cooking. It’s not that I don’t like mint, I just haven’t made many dishes that call for it. Last week, I was following a meal plan that sounded interesting […]

Sweet Potato Cheese Sauce

Sweet Potato Cheese Sauce

When I made the decision to go plant based, one of the first meals I decided to create in the kitchen was a vegan cheese sauce. This was a big deal for me.  You see, before I went vegan, I wasn’t much of a cook. […]

Tex-Mex Rice for Buddha Bowls

If you were to ask me what I really eat… I’d give you an honest answer and say smoothies, soups, salads and Buddha Bowls. These are my go-to meals. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve obviously made all the other recipes on this blog and plenty […]

Plant Based Cauliflower Au Gratin

Plant Based Cauliflower Au Gratin

I remember eating Au Gratin Potatoes as a kid. I always loved how gooey, warm, and savory it tasted. Who doesn’t love Au Gratin, it’s comfort food right? But one thing that I didn’t like about it, was that it was a side dish. It […]
