Simple Sesame + Spice Rice Noodles

Simple Sesame and Spice Rice Noodles

Oodles of noodles. Oodles of spicy noodles, to be exact. These incredibly simple sesame + spice rice noodles are reminiscent of yummy Thai takeout, and they're just about the easiest thing to prepare... ever. With a snazzy and short list of eight ingredients, you can whip up a big bowl of warm, spicy noodles and cozy up on your couch for the evening. Who doesn't want a bit of coziness and a heaping bowl of this... Yum. To make this goodness, you'll combine cooked rice noodles … [Read more...]

6-Ingredient Mini Raw Key Lime Pies

5 Ingredient Mini Raw Key Lime Pies

Otherwise known as "little rounds of citrus-zested joy." Historically speaking, if I were given a choice of 100 vegan desserts, key lime pie would probably rank in the lower quartile of my pickings. It's tasty but trumped by the flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, pumpkin, caramel, butterscotch, etc. That being said, I think my dessert-ranking game might have just been given a shake. This key lime pie? Well, let's just say I'd consider rank-ordering it above the majority of my other … [Read more...]

Curried Carrot & Lemony Hummus Crostini

Curried Carrot & Lemony Hummus Crostini

Before we get into the heart of this post and recipe, I want to share something that I hope will open your heart to a worthy cause. For this particular post, I've partnered with FEED, a charitable organization whose mission is defined by its name; a dedication to feeding the children of the world, neither a small nor an easy feat. Between September 16th and October 16th (aka World Food Day), a new initiative called FEED Supper is taking place to help raise money and awareness to fight … [Read more...]

Detoxifying Greek Salad with Kale & Cauliflower “Feta”

Vegan Green Salad with Kale & Cauliflower Feta

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Dan and I were in Shenandoah Valley for an absolutely love-filled wedding for our friends, so we had quite the weekend of fun and travel. We are still in the midst of the kitchen repairs I mentioned in this post last week, but I've welcomed a more positive, go-with-the-flow attitude. We'll likely have a half-functional kitchen for a few more weeks, but there's no sense fretting about something that is almost completely out of my control. Plus, there's … [Read more...]

Vegan Crêpe Tacos with Warm Spinach-Mushroom Filling

Vegan Breakfast Tacos with Warm Mushroom Filling

This was quite possibly the most difficult recipe to name. Initially, I set out to create a high-protein, vegan crêpe recipe. However, after a few rounds of testing, I decided to put a creative twist on things and use the crêpes as tortillas to create high-protein breakfast tacos. If there were no bounds to appropriate lengths for blog post titles, I think I would call these Vegan Breakfast Tacos with Crêpe Tortillas and Warm Spinach, Mushroom, and Leek Filling Topped With a Drizzle of … [Read more...]

Vegan Caramel Banana Cream Parfait

Vegan Caramel Banana Cream Parfait

Have I ever told you the story about the time I singed off some of my hair while cooking? Probably not because it just happened on Monday.  In this blog post I hinted at the variety of life things, both wonderful and frustrating, occurring all at once, but I don't think I had fully processed my feelings around any of it until Monday. Monday was one of those days when it seems like everything keeps going wrong, and somehow I developed this irritable, woe-is-me attitude that only seemed to … [Read more...]

Matcha Green Tea, Buckwheat & Goji Granola

Matcha Green Tea, Buckwheat & Goji Granola

A few years back, I never would have thought about making homemade granola. Why bother when you can buy it in the store, right? However, now I understand that it's worth the bother because it's actually not much trouble to make, and it's wonderful to know exactly what ingredients are going into it. Store bought granola often contains additives (e.g., colorings, preservatives, processed sugars, etc.) that I'd prefer not to eat if I have the option, and after making blueberry-buckwheat and … [Read more...]

Extra-Thick Mint Chip Superfood Smoothie

Mint Chip Superfood Smoothie

First of all, I'm so sorry for the wacky posting schedule this week! Between the holiday weekend, the start of the school year, a nasty case of fall allergies, and some major building-repair planning for our condo association (note: the repairs will affect our kitchen. wah.), this week has been a bit of a whirlwind. That being said, I already have next week's M-W-F posts lined up, so we'll be back to business as usual. Until then, my plan is to chill out with this thick, creamy, minty, and … [Read more...]

Give-Me-A-Kick Vegan Sweet Potato Nacho Cheese

Vegan Sweet Potato Nacho Cheese

It's not yo' cheese. Just kidding. It's absolutely yo' cheese. Dip-able. Creamy. Spicy. Snackable. Thick. Dreamy. Nacho cheesy. I've mentioned this before but when I first went vegan, I mourned the loss of dairy cheese for quite some time. Those close to me know that cheese was one of my absolute favorite treats, and I ate it almost daily. Little did I know that vegan cheeses, homemade or store-bought, are so good that they wholly and completely fill the … [Read more...]

Light & Fluffy 4-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Fluffy Vegan Chocolate Mousse

This fluffy 4-ingredient chocolate mousse is a vegan recipe in disguise. Going on taste, texture, and decadence, you'd never believe this dessert is 100% vegan. It will have you swooning within a chocolaty embrace, and it will take you for a fool. Naysayers beware, this one isn't playing games. I have another vegan chocolate mousse recipe on the blog and not to knock that one, but there is really no comparison. That one is delicious in its own right but a bit more pudding-like because of the … [Read more...]
