Linguine with Mixed Veggies in a Brown Mushroom Sauce

Pasta comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Add in the various types of sauce, or ‘gravy’ as it is sometimes known, and you have a nearly endless amount of combinations. It’s hard to get creative and come up with something that no one has ever made before, especially since pasta is such a…

Butternut Squash Steaks

No, they don’t look like meat. And they definitely don’t taste like meat. But being vegan isn’t about trying to replicate all of the foods you used to eat in the exact shape and form that they were. There is no reason to make the food look like something it isn’t. These are slices of…

Smoky Split Pea with Portobello Mushrooms

The last few days of Winter are dragging by. The forecast for the next 10 days is finally showing a few sunny days, though it still won’t be warm yet. And by warm, I mean above 70 degrees. Soon it will be too warm for soup, so I made a large batch today. It probably…

Vegan Pizza

As I have stated in prior posts, my wife and I purchase very little pre-made foods. Two of the exceptions to that rule are; Daiya cheese, and Trader Joe’s gluten-free pizza crusts. The crusts come in three different styles, including the one pictured below. Though we can make our own gluten-free crusts, it’s just easier…

Avocado Toast

If you haven’t tried avocado toast yet, have you even really lived? Okay, so maybe avocadoes aren’t available where you live, or maybe you’re allergic to them. But outside of those two items – you need to try it. Seriously. Here’s the basic recipe. Feel free to add other ingredients to enhance the flavor to…

Stir-Fried Quinoa with Mixed Vegetables

Have you ever been working on something and lose track of time? That’s what happened the day I created this. I went way past my usual lunch break, so by the time I got into the kitchen, I was hangry. Took a quick peak in the fridge and pantry and didn’t see anything that clicked…

Spaghetti Squash Pasta

Looking for an easy way to eat healthier, but not sure where to start? One of the first vegetarian meals my wife and I introduced into our lives, long before we made the decision to be vegan, was Spaghetti Squash Pasta. Here’s a few of the nutritional differences to give you an idea of just…

Split Pea Soup

We almost always have a mason jar or two filled with dried split peas in our house. It’s a very easy recipe to make, and it’s so good on those cold, windy days. It’s a hearty little bowl that’s chock-full of vitamins and protein. Here’s how I made it. Ingredients: 2 cups dried split peas,…

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…
