Garlic Sesame Snow Peas

I absolutely LOVE snow peas. They are one of my favorite items in Chinese food, and I’ve always loved finding them on veggie dip trays at parties. But eating them as a main dish just always sounded weird. Then we planted some snow peas in our garden, and they produced prolifically. A long, cold, rainy…

Chana Masala with Butternut Squash

What do you do when you really want a certain recipe, but you don’t have the ingredients? Well, if you are anything like me a few years back, you just move on and make something else. Or you complain to your wife and hope she makes something even better. This recipe came out of my…

Vegan Sushi

I love sushi. Like, seriously love it. I could eat sushi two to three times a week and still wouldn’t get bored. The only thing is, as a vegan, there aren’t as many options for what goes inside the rolls. Carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, and avocado are great, but they can be, well, boring after…

Cinnamon Apple Compote

I love breakfast. Especially on the days when my wife is home. Those are the days we get to be creative in the kitchen together. This is one of my favorite things to make, too. We’ve mixed these into our VGF Pancakes, we’ve put them on top of our VGF Buckwheat Waffles, and we’ve even…

VGF Mac-n-Cheese

If you’re thinking about going vegan, but afraid that you will miss all of your normal foods, I get it. That was my biggest fear, too. And so the first thing I did after making the decision, was to write down all of the comfort foods I used to eat. Mac-n-Cheese was at the top…

Butternut Squash Pineapple Fried Rice

Every so often, I get a hankering for some fried rice. And, though I hate to brag, it’s one of the dishes I’m pretty darn good at making. At least, that’s what my wife tells me. And why would she lie? But today, I didn’t start off thinking of making fried rice. I started off…

Slow Cooker Red Curry Lentils

One of the most common reasons I hear from people for not switching to a more healthy diet, is time. No one seems to have the time these days to prepare meals from scratch. And yet, the fatigue and illnesses we feel from running at the speeds we do, day in and day out, can…

Carrot & Red Onion Soup

Winter. It just calls out for soup. Especially if the winter winds bring you more than just flushed cheeks and frozen eyebrows. Yep. I’m talking about Acute Viral Nasopharyngitis. Otherwise known as ‘the common cold’. My wife came down with a cold last week, and she’s been dealing with a lingering sore throat ever since….
