Sautéed Garlic Lemon Kale With Pine Nuts

I love vegetables. Bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes… they’re all so refreshing and delicious! There is one category of veggies I don’t eat too often though, and it just happens to be the most important: greens. Dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of nutrition, according to the USDA. They’re low calorie, yet packed with…

Creamy Cauliflower Coconut Soup (Vegan)

Soup is one of those foods that just gets overlooked. Nobody dislikes it, but it’s also not anyone’s favorite food. Part of the reason for this is because soup is seasonal. It’s great during the colder months of the year, but not ideal for the summer. We all know that. In my opinion, however, there’s…

Tempura Green Beans With Soy-Lime Dipping Sauce

I was a picky eater as a kid. Foods couldn’t be touching on the plate, salad had to be dressing-free, and condiments other than ketchup were off limits. Despite my mom’s best efforts to get me to try new foods, I was set on eating French fries and PBJ sandwiches for the rest of my…

Crispy Ginger Sriracha Tofu

Tofu has a reputation for being soggy, bland, and downright disgusting. This used to offend me, as I grew up in a Japanese household where we ate it everyday! However, after seeing how Americans try to eat tofu (straight out of the package, with no seasoning, and sometimes even raw), I understand why they may…

Crispy Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Some foods need a little extra love to make them taste good. Brussels sprouts are one of those foods. They tend to get a bad rap, as people always make jokes about how bad they are. The truth, however, is that brussels sprouts can be really tasty, as long as you prepare them correctly! The…

Vegan Tempeh Bacon

There’s a million responses I get when I tell people I’m vegan, but the most annoying one is when people say “But what about bacon?” Honestly, it’s incredibly rude to just discredit someone’s beliefs with a joke. Most ethical vegans care very deeply about animals and don’t feel that this topic is a laughing matter….

Oil-Free Black Bean Dip

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and you know what that means: snacks! If you’re anything like me, there’s only two reason to watch the big game, and neither of them has to do with football. The first reason to watch the Super Bowl is the commercials, which are always quite entertaining. The…

Rosemary Cornbread Muffins (Vegan/Gluten-Free)

I feel like cornbread is the underdog of side dishes. Many people favor biscuits or dinner rolls over cornbread, saying that cornbread is too dry and bland. However, I’d like to make an argument in favor of cornbread. When prepared correctly, it has a delicous buttery flavor, with just a hint of sweetness. Adding different…

Ultimate Vegan Mac and Cheese

If you’ve ever searched the internet for vegan mac and cheese, then you probably know that there’s tons of recipes out there. I’m guessing you’ve also noticed that they’re all extremely similar. They usually include cashews, some sort of orange vegetable (like carrots or sweet potatoes), and nutritional yeast. All these ingredients are blended up…

Vegan Pumpkin Walnut Chili (Instant Pot)

Lately, with the cooler weather, all I’ve wanted to do is cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a blanket, a good book, and a mug of my pumpkin spice hot cocoa. The chilly temperature is giving me all the cozy feels! Of course, another thing I’ve been doing now that it’s fall is…
