You’ve seen tofu at restaurants. You may have already eaten tofu yourself. Tofu is just about everywhere these days. Tofu is a soy product that is one of the easiest and healthiest food to cook. It’s packed with protein and has such a mild flavor that you can influence it’s flavor profile however you want. [...]
This is my new favorite, quick and easy snack or side dish. This couscous salad is packed with bright flavors from the lemon, basil and fresh vegetables. It’s also light and refreshing, perfect for these warm days ahead of us. Plus it keeps for awhile, so you can prepare it ahead of time for parties. [...]
Howdy and happy Groundhog’s Day to you! This isn’t really a Groundhog’s Day inspired recipe (who eats groundhog anyway?) but I had a plethora of oats and almonds in my pantry that inspired this recipe instead. I bought some fresh strawberries and these vegan strawberry bars were born! I love that this recipe uses real fruit instead [...]
Are you looking for something new to make for brunch this weekend? Try this scramble on for size. With the right method and seasonings, this dish will mock scrambled eggs. This is one of those recipes that is super versatile too. It’s great for those days when you want to use up some leftover produce odds and [...]
Quinoa is magical, isn’t it? It fills your belly but it doesn’t fill your waste-line. Quinoa is one of those healthy grains that you can manipulate to make it your own too. I like to cook mine in broth and add fresh herbs and veggies. This salad is tasty at any temperature too – great for [...]
This was my first attempt at a vegan dessert and I must say that I patted myself on the back for this one. There aren’t a ton of kooky ingredients in this recipe (by “kooky” I mean ingredients that I buy once and never again) however, you might be surprised to read that this mousse [...]
Veganism is something that Mister and I are both currently exploring. We are meat lovers at heart, but from time to time I find an amazing vegan recipe that I have to try (and Mister is typically my guinea pig). Plus a good friend of ours is vegan, which provides even more opportunities to create [...]
The quest for this pizza recipe began over a month ago. My Paleo friend challenged me to make him a pizza that met his dietary needs. I believe his exact words were, “Foodie McBooty, the one thing I really miss eating is pizza. Make a Paleo-friendly pizza for me, please.” Food challenge accepted! I admit that [...]
Hello! How are you enjoying the Virtual Vegan Potluck so far? It’s great to see all the participants and all of their tasty looking recipes. I feel so inspired! Years ago now, I spent two years practicing a Vegetarian diet. During that time I didn’t eat as healthily as I should have. Plus I wasn’t [...]
We are 90% unpacked! The living room and kitchen are done. The bathrooms and master bedroom is done. I even (finally) planted my vegetable and herb seeds for the year! I feel so accomplished. We only have one room left to unpack – the second bedroom. Be afraid, be very afraid, because this room is [...]
Excerpt taken from An Unrefined Vegan. I plan to make a dish. You should too! You don’t have to be vegan to participate. See the link at the bottom of the article for more information. I’ve been enjoying the blogging community so much and making so many wonderful connections that I thought it would be [...]
Hello! My name is Nicole. I'm a blogger, a sports fan and a bacon activist. When I'm not making a huge mess in the kitchen, I am leaving my mark outside or gaming with my Mister. Read more...
