Vegan Breakfast Tacos – Can also be Vegetarian

I find it hardest to be vegan during the winter months, ESPECIALLY when it comes to breakfast. You know, when the idea of drinking an ice cold smoothies on a freezing morning is no longer appealing. Well, I’m always in search of other options for my breakfasts, and this vegan breakfast taco (that can also…

Raw Vegan Kale Basil Pesto

This AMAZING kale pesto recipe initially appeared in my Gluten Free Pesto Pasta post. But it is too good to miss, so I’m creating it’s own post. This pesto can be used as a dip for vegetables or chips, a creamy sauce for pasta, or just to eat plain on its own! The addition of…

Basil Lime Coconut Protein Smoothie

Basil, lime and coconut are 3 of my favorite things. If you combine them into a smoothie, well then you just made yourself the perfect breakfast! This smoothie contains plant-protein powder as well as almond milk. You can of course substitute the almond milk for any nut milk you desire, and use any plant based…

Pasta and Veggies with Tomato Sauce – Gluten and oil-free!

I was traveling recently and on a plane coming back to Austin from Ukraine. The plane served a pasta meal with veggies, tomato sauce, ground beef and cheese on top. While this looked like a great meal (as far as airplane food goes, anyway), I thought to myself, “I can make a much better vegan…

Weekend Breakfast Bowl

There are few things I like doing more on the weekend than cooking. It’s my time to create recipes, put a little extra into what I’m making, as well as prepping my food for the week! Since it’s been extremely cold in Texas, I’ve been craving more hot breakfasts and less cold smoothies. Enter my…

German Holiday Lebkuchen Cookies – Gluten Free!

As a kid I used to LOVE making Lebkuchen cookies, which are basically a German version of gingerbread cookies. I hadn’t made them for years, but my recent travels in Europe inspired me to try coming up with a vegan version. Lebkuchen is traditionally a honey based cookie with lots of spices, so substituting the…

Carob Coconut Chocolate

I recently wanted to make some chocolate out of my old coconut butter, so I decided that I would make some carob coconut chocolate and see how it turned out. I had already done carob fudge a while back, so I thought this would be pretty good too. I ended up making a couple versions,…

Tumeric Saffron Chickpea Bowl

This is another recipe that came about with me not really having a plan of what I’ll be making, but decided to use what I had in my fridge at the time. Once I started cooking with my trusty ingredients that I never am without (mushrooms, onions and some sort of green), the rest just…

Yes, another pumpkin recipe! I’m usually not that into making various pumpkin recipes, but for some reason this year I am really wanting to create more vegan holiday pumpkin dishes. So, stay tuned for more after this! This pumpkin pie latte is made with my favorite, creamy, delicious pumpkin seed milk, and topped with coconut…

Quinoa with Broccoli and Butternut Squash

This dish came about because I had eaten all my lunch meals for the week early, as I ended up eating the same thing for lunch and dinner two days in row. When I came home on Wednesday night, I realized I didn’t have any lunches to bring to work with me for Thursday and…
