    Vegan Pasta Bake + Tofu Ricotta

    I used to roll my eyes when a food blogger talked about tofu ricotta and how it was so similar to traditional ricotta. I didn’t believe them to be honest. Cheesy lasagna and pasta bakes were something that I missed from before I was vegan. So I started experimenting with tofu ricotta. The first time I made it, it was garbage. It tasted so bad, but I finally have a recipe that tastes good and performs similarly to traditional ricotta.  Pin This For Later ⇓♥ This recipe is also gluten free. I used a pasta that was made out of green lentils and that’s why the picture has a green…

    A Vegan Thanksgiving (2018)

    I went overboard this year… I cooked and ate way too much over Thanksgiving. The holidays are for binge eating though, at least in the US. Last year, I posted recipes from Thanksgiving and I thought I would continue the tradition this year. Here is a rundown on what I ate… Pumpkin and Maple Scones. Apple and Pear Crisp. Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip. Vegan Stuffing. Salad. Sweet Potato and Bean Chili. Tempeh (sautéed). Some of the recipes I have already posted, so I will link to that specific post. Pumpkin and Maple Scones The recipe can be found here: Vegan Recipes for Fall (Sweet and Savory). Pear and Apple Crisp This…

    Inauthentic Vegan Falafel

    I researched a lot of falafel recipes. Many of them said things like “you must use chickpea flour” or “canned chickpeas WILL NOT work”. That’s a bit dramatic. I enjoy authentic falafel; but when I make it at home, I am not going to go out of my way to make a glorified veggie patty. So if you are wondering why “inauthentic” is in the title, it’s because this is a more Americanized and forgiving recipe. Nonetheless, it is delicious and healthy.

Guaranteed to fulfill all of your fall food dreams. … PIN THIS FOR LATER ⇓♥ ~ Sweets ~ PEAR AND APPLE CRISP A slight twist on a fall favorite. This serves around 4-6 and it is…

    Vegan Hamburger Helper

    This brings back memories! As a kid, I had some sort of hamburger helper dish about once a week. I always looked forward to it. I haven’t seen a vegan version in grocery stores, so I decided to just make one up. This recipe is family friendly, easy, and it’s great comfort food. I hope you enjoy it! Pin This ↓ Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy Cuisine: American, Vegan Printer Friendly Version Here Ingredients: ½ box of whole wheat macaroni or penne pasta. 1 block of Daiya Cheddar Cheese or other preferred vegan cheese. Meatless crumbles or other vegan meat (I used half a package).…

    High Protein Breakfast Recipes // Vegan

    “But where do you get your protein?”. Immediately roll my eyes. Every vegan hates this question because nearly every whole plant food has protein. “But Kaley…What about essential amino acids?”. If you eat a variety of foods, then you have nothing to worry about. The only time you wouldn’t get an adequate amount of protein is if you are starving yourself (eating well under 1000 calories). Every vegan on the planet probably hears comments or questions like these. Most people don’t realize that plant-based foods/meals can still be high-protein. I try to eat higher protein in the morning because my days are busy. I do not necessarily recommend a high…

    Sweet Treats for Vegans

    Following a vegan lifestyle shouldn’t feel limiting! You don’t need to say goodbye to your favorite treats when you adopt a plant-based diet. Only a few easy substitutions are needed! I have three sweet treats that I want to share. They are fully vegan and beginner friendly. Pin This ⇓♥ 1. Lemon Blueberry Bread I cheated on this one because it’s barely homemade. This is more of a food hack. Most baking mixes are accidentally vegan. Instead of using eggs use a flax egg (1 tbsp of flax seeds with 2-3 tbsps of water = 1 egg) or 1/2 of a mashed banana. If the box calls for milk, just use…

    Quick Vegan Meals | Summer Edition

    Summer can be a very busy time. Most of us can’t be bothered to cook elaborate meals, especially when we would rather be outside or hanging out with friends. These meals are super simple and also fresh and light (inspired by summer). I hope you enjoy these healthy vegan meals. Pin This ♥⇓ 1. Greek Orzo Salad This is something I ate a lot prior to being vegan. My family used to make this with chicken and feta cheese, but now I just omit those ingredients. This is a good dish to meal prep because it serves about 2-4 and it stays well in the refrigerator. Ingredients… 1/2 Package of orzo…

    This Month in Food Photography: July

    It’s that time again! Time for me to share my food photos, because I’m that person. I used to eat food, but now I just take pictures of it. Just joking, I still eat my food (30 minutes later). People seem to enjoy these posts, so I am continuing this series! Since I’ve settled into my new place I have kept a fairly consistent layout/background, in the past I was all over the place. It’s definitely not perfect, but I am liking how my photos turn out most of the time.   Here are all my food photos from July! I typically do a darker background and minimal props. I…
