Diced Red Potatoes and Kohlrabi Bake

Diced Red Potatoes and Kohlrabi Bake

This recipe creates a side dish that could be called herbalicious. Diced red potatoes and kohlrabi take center stage together and are complemented by crimini mushrooms. It throws together really quickly and bakes while you work on your main dish.

Lentils, Quinoa, and Bok Choy

Lentils, Quinoa, and Bok Choy

This is a very basic recipe that I like to think of as a template for quick and easy meal nights. Recipes are great, but some nights you may not be in the mood to follow a recipe. Consider making a dish similar to this when you want to throw a quick, nutritious meal together.

Simply pick a grain, a legume, and an assortment of veggies. Add your favorite herbs and spices. Feel free to add tofu, seitan, or tempeh if you want (but there’s no need). There are a wide variety of grains and legumes out there – not to mention veggies, so recipe-less nights won’t get boring. I learn about new (to me) foods all the time.

Thai Peanut Stir-Fry

Thai Peanut Stir-Fry

This stir-fry recipe doesn’t include oil, which cuts down on fat and calories. Water is used in place of oil to sauté the veggies. To see tips on using water instead of oil, see the notes section below the recipe.

Not Your Grandma’s Tuna Noodle Casserole

Not Your Grandma’s Tuna Noodle Casserole

This recipe is not your grandma’s tuna casserole. In fact, we got rid of the tuna and the noodles. In place of tuna, you’ll find garbanzo beans. In place of noodles, you’ll find zucchini. The garbanzo beans lend a tuna flavor and the zucchini is made into pasta-like strings, making this dish resemble a tuna casserole, with a healthy twist.

Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus

I love avocados. I love hummus. I just had to throw the two together. The result was a smoother hummus texture with a hint of an avocado flavor. It was a fun way to use up extra avocado (is that a thing?) while giving hummus a nutritional boost. As if hummus weren’t nutritional enough on its own!

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

My love for horseradish is so deep that I am almost tempted to eat it by the spoonful. I incorporate it anywhere I can. Horseradish is like my hot sauce.

It may sound like an unnatural pair, but mashed potatoes and horseradish complement one another really well.

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Quinoa takes center stage in this sloppy joe recipe. It doesn’t take much effort to come up with a vegan sloppy joe recipe. There are plenty of beefless crumble options on the store shelves, after all. You owe it to yourself to ignore those options and use quinoa. I mean… sloppy joes you don’t have to feel guilty about? Yes, please!

Tofu with Agave Mustard

Tofu with Agave Mustard

This is my favorite tofu recipe to date. My husband (not a big tofu fan) said this tasted like chicken. In this recipe, you’ll combine agave nectar (the vegan honey) and Dijon mustard to create a tasty dipping sauce.

Serve this at a party or as an after-school snack. Stick a toothpick in each piece of tofu to make it easy and fun to eat.

Hearty Tomato and Kale Vegetable Soup

Hearty Tomato and Kale Vegetable Soup

Kale, Cabbage, and cannellini beans come together in this hearty soup recipe, which is topped with avocado. This soup will warm you up on a cold winter night. It only takes a few minutes to throw this soup together, which means it finds its way to my dinner table frequently during the winter.

Vegan French Toast

Vegan French Toast

Though I only eat it occasionally, I’m a French toast lover. Quite naturally I didn’t waste any time after transitioning to a vegan lifestyle to figure out how to make a vegan version. It was easy to do and quite enjoyable to eat.

Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash

Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash

Sweet Roasted Acorn Squash This recipe reminds me of my childhood bird. She loved squash prepared this way! It’s a rather simple recipe and is great to eat with a salad or simply as a standalone dessert. Each serving has 95 calories. Check out nutritional...
Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Vegetarian French Onion Soup

French onion soup, while meatless, is generally not vegetarian-friendly. Not only does the broth have a beef base, but the soup is covered in Gruyere cheese. Gruyere cheese is often made with animal rennet. I become jealous when my husband orders French onion soup when we dine out, so I decided to make a me-friendly version at home.
