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…

Quinoa with Broccoli and Butternut Squash

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.
