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…

Spaghetti and Meatballs – Vegan and Gluten Free

Is this really a recipe? I don’t know, but I’m going to say it is. The reason why I say this is because this is the simplest vegan spaghetti dish you can make, as you are basically preparing the noodles. The rest of the ingredients you can buy from the store and put together already…

Carrot Coconut Oat Muffins – Sugar Free!

After making my vegan carrot oat muffins a few weeks back, I realized how easy it could be to make a vegan, gluten free, sugar free version. Yes, you heard that right. An infamous combo followed by groans from the masses as they automatically dismiss the idea that a vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free dish could be…

Raw Vegan Lemon Coconut Cookies

Lemon and coconut mixes are some of my favorite. Lemon coconut ice cream, lemon coconut smoothies, and lemon coconut cookies! These raw vegan cookies taste so fresh, with raw, natural lemon juice and lemon zest adding the perfect tangy flavor to the coconut base. This a great cookie to serve as an after dinner dessert…

Kale Pesto with Gluten Free Macaroni

Pesto is just a great tasting dish. I’ve made various versions of pesto before, but I thought to try my hand at a better version that I could make and eat with noodles, but that can also stand on its own. Enter vegan kale pesto, making this dish perfect for a noodle side, dip or…

Banana Zucchini Muffins – Gluten Free!

Keeping up with the breakfast muffin trend, when my sister asked me to make some healthy breakfast muffins, I originally went with banana zucchini. However, my idea to use coconut flour in the muffins just didn’t turn out well. The muffins were dense, did not cook fully and were just a disaster. The taste however,…

Mango Ginger Pear Smoothie

Another tasty breakfast smoothie! This one is versatile as well, meaning that you can make this with or without milk. I’ve done it both ways and it came out lovely! I recommend hemp seed milk for this recipe, and if you have never made hemp seed milk before, please click this link for more information!…

Carrot Oat Muffins – Gluten Free

My sister recently asked me to make some healthy breakfast muffins for her and my nephews. She was open to combinations, but wanted some type of vegetable in it, and the muffin had to be gluten free, as she has been eating gluten free for years. At first I was googling recipes on conventional gluten…

Quinoa, Sauteed Veggies and Walnuts

Yes, it’s me with another quinoa dish, I just can’t stop! Once I find a mixture or base dish that I really love, e.g. quinoa and sauteed mushrooms/onions, then building from that makes it so much easier. Of course, if you don’t like mushrooms (or onions), you can always substitute for something else. The addition…

Oatmeal Coconut Pecan Cookies

Recently I made a mistake online purchase for oats. I thought I was buying one single tub of oats for our office. Turns out it was several tubs in one, and I ended up with 5 pounds of oats. What are you supposed to do with 5 pounds of oats? Well, start making cookies, for…

Quinoa Chickpea Burgers

Well, after 2 unsuccessful attempts at making vegan burgers, I finally mastered it! And I couldn’t say what was the key ingredient, though I did learn that adding too many chunky vegetables in them will cause the burgers to fall apart easier. So for this, I will add some optional additions to the burgers, but…
