Easy Spinach and Cheese Lasagna with Homemade Noodles {vegan, tofu ricotta}

Lasagna seems like such a complicated dish when one considers all the boiling of noodles, layering of ingredients, etc. The problem is, I really love lasagna. I am a really busy mother of a toddler though, so it was absolutely essential that I find a way to make a healthy, homemade lasagna that doesn’t take […]

Whole Grain Spelt Pasta Dough

Homemade pasta is one of those foods that I was always timid about trying to make. Once I did it a couple times, however, I have been spoiled for store-bought pasta forever. It is really quite simple, not very time consuming and allows for mistakes (too much water? Add flour. Too much flour? Add water. […]

Spinach, Mushroom and Sundried Tomato Omelets with Easy Hollandaise {vegan, tofu, delicious}

As I have explored the world of vegan cooking three things have become very obvious. 1) Absolutely anything can be veganized. I’ve never met a food I couldn’t “convert”. 2) Simple is always best. A lot of vegan recipes call for a lot of unnecessary ingredients. 3) It is absolutely necessary to be fearless. These […]

Vegan Slow-Cooker Green Chili

So you made my slow-cooker carnitas, now what do you do with them? You can’t go wrong with a great green chili. Unless you are from a place where green chili is practically a food group (like Colorado), you may not know about the addiction which is green chili. Here in my home state, we find […]

If that describes you, I have a really great surprise for you. Ready for it? You can make an amazing seitan roast in your slow-cooker! It is so […]

Crispy Tofu Tacos with Honey Lime Slaw

Tofu is such a versatile food! Every time I think that I have discovered everything there is to make with it I find a bunch of new ideas. Most recently, I discovered that it works marvelously well as a stand-in for fish. Its soft, but firm consistency works well in almost any recipe that traditionally […]

Pablano Peppers Stuffed with Southwestern Scramble

Happy Friday! In honor of the coming weekend, here is a great breakfast/brunch idea. These stuffed peppers are really simple to make, full of flavor and lots of fun. The pablano peppers are sweet with just the slightest hint of heat and are paired with a perfectly seasoned tofu scramble. When you serve them, make […]

Creamy, Dreamy Pistachio Pie

I started working on veganizing this layered pudding dessert years ago. The original recipe was a very un-vegan creation starring a shortbread pecan crust, cream cheese and whipped topping, Jell-O instant pistachio pudding and more whipped topping piled on top. My family always used to eat it on St. Patrick’s Day, and it has been […]
