Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Right now the best soup I have EVER made. Thank you ginabnutrition for this recipe (found on her instagram). The fall flavors of this soup are just incredible, and I love that this soup uses seasonal ingredients. I made a few adjustments based on ingredients I had at home to her original recipe (adjustments will…

Cauliflower Tikka Masala

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for Cauliflower Tikka Masala for a while after seeing it on The Cutting Veg instagram feed, and finally got around to making it this weekend! The recipe is not an authentic tikka masala, but it is delicious! Plus, it is dairy free, for all those that are lactose…

Kale Walnut Pesto

I’ve had Chef Chloe’s 5- ingredient Vegan Pesto saved in recipes I’ve wanted to try, and decided to make it yesterday. I didn’t love the final product, so I added an additional cup of kale, as well as ingredients inspired by Easy 5- minute Vegan Pesto from the Minimalist Baker. Pesto is a good amount for…

Overnight Buckwheat Chia Oatmeal

I bought a huge bag of buckwheat to make my Homemade Seeded Buckwheat Bread, but since I do not have a food processor or blender in my new place (which I need to make the bread), I was not able to use my buckwheat for this recipe. I was looking for another buckwheat recipe that…

Oil-Free Roasted Eggplant (Two ways)

Likely due to my middle eastern background, eggplant is one of my favorite foods. I’ve been seeing different methods of roasting eggplant without oil, and decided to do an experiment using two similarly sized eggplants from the same store to figure out which method I liked best. I tried two methods: one using the stove…

Peanut Butter Tempeh

A combination of two of my favorite foods, peanut butter and tempeh. I snagged a few bites of the tempeh with the peanut sauce before I baked it, and I knew I would love the final product because it was delicious even before putting it into the oven. This recipe is very easy to make,…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter and chocolate, as shown through my various dessert combos containing these two ingredients: Healthy Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars, Peanut Butter Banana Cups, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites. This is my first cookie recipe to include both of these beloved ingredients! I found this cookie recipe off of…

Crunchy Sweet Potato Peels

I saw this recipe on food52’s instagram for what they called Potato Peel Chips. I had been wanting to try this recipe for a while, because I love crunchy foods, and sweet potatoes (especially the peel!) It makes me sad that a lot of the recipes discard sweet potato peels, especially since they are delicious…
