Moroccan Lentil Soup

I don’t have much experience baking soups, so I thought I’d try something new by trying this recipe from the New York Times out. I also loved eating Moroccan Soup during my trip to Morocco (read more about other foods I enjoyed here Top Moroccan Food and Drinks You Need to Try (Vegetarian Friendly)) Here’s how…

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

So I love fries and sweet potatoes, which has led me to make sweet potato fries pretty frequently. I like mine crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and have tried different recipes. Recently, I tried making two different recipe versions as the same time so I could give a fair comparison. I…

Cauliflower Parmesan

Gluten-free and passover friendly! Plus, cauliflower is an extremely healthy vegetable that is a good source of fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Potassium, Manganese, Magnesium, and Phosphorus (healthline.com) This Cauliflower Parmesan Recipe was inspired by two recipes from Delish, one for their Cauliflower Parm recipe, and another from their marinara sauce (I…

Matzah Brei

It’s Passover, which means it’s time for one of my favorite dishes, Matzah Brei! I’ve seen many different versions, but decided to share my own with you all (I like a savory version). This makes exactly one serving, so if you want more, just multiply the recipe by the amount of people you are cooking…

Cauliflower Shawarma

I love the smells of shawarma, but as a vegetarian, its hard to find something that absorbs the flavor of this seasoning as well as meat. I’ve tried different vegetarian versions (on tofu, broccoli, and cauliflower), and my favorite by far has been on cauliflower. Shawarma seasoning is a blend of cumin, coriander, paprika and…

Extra Crispy Cauliflower Gnocchi

Anyone else on the Trader Joes Cauliflower Gnocchi bandwagon? I love mine crispy, yet the crispy part always tends to stick to the bottom of the skillet when I make it, and leave me with a mushy, sticky mess of cauliflower gnocchi. I’ve tried countless recipes, and my favorite, most successful results were using the…

Homemade Corn Tortillas (made without a tortilla press)

I bought queso de mano recently from my local grocery store (I live in Miami, so I have plenty of latin products in my grocery store). I ran out of tortillas at home, and decided to make my own! Most recipes I saw online required a tortilla press, but since I run on a tight…

Plantain Bread

Friendly to many diets (Paleo, gluten-free, kosher, nut free), this delicious plantain bread is worth a try! This recipe is from from @starinfinitefood on instagram. I doubled her recipe to make a larger loaf (so loaf if tall enough to have slices for sandwiches). Best served warm with butter! Ingredients: 2 large plantains (yellow/brown) 4…

Southwestern Tacos with Lentil Walnut Meat

Made these southwestern tacos after making this recipe of Lentil Walnut meat from Vegan Heaven. The lentil walnut meat was a hit, even with my carnivorous family members! I love this lentil walnut meat recipe because it is versatile to cook with and is healthy and delicious.  Feel free to make your own revisions based on…
