Lentil Shepherds Pie

Lentils were something I had not even heard of (along with the term “legume”) years ago, but now they are a staple is our pantry because, not only are they a nutritious super food, cheap and delicious, they are so easy to cook and don’t require the preparation and soaking like beans. Lentils are high in fiber, protein, and iron and are great for battling some of America’s biggest health epidemics, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, IBS, and even fatigue.

Avocado Pesto Pasta – Zucchini noodles

About a week ago I posted a picture of some food I put together that actually came out to be a delicious and rather healthy meal that I just HAD to share! I am the queen at vegan-izing meals, especially the greasy, fattening foods I loved growing up! But with the summer creeping up on me, I thought I should also focus a little more on my health and a little less on making vegan fried chicken, you feel me? Continue reading

Dairy-Free Whipped Cream

This is probably the easiest recipe to date. Just 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes and you have yourself some homemade, delicious, dairy-free whipped cream! This stuff is SO GOOD and easy that I made enough for all the desserts (15 cans of coconut milk worth!) last Thanksgiving and I had to make more for leftovers!

Yes, you can buy coconut whipped cream from the store, but you’re going to pay for it and truthfully… you won’t be saving much time either because this is SO EASY! Continue reading

Ultimate Vegan Banana Bread

Not to toot my own horn here, but I have never in my life had a banana bread this good! I have worked and worked on this recipe to have it just perfect and I have no doubt that I have accomplished just that! You will not be disappointed! Not to mention, its super simple with only 10 ingredients (well, 11 with the walnuts.).

Vegan Cornbread

I will start this by saying that this is not sweet cornbread. Will does not like sweet cornbread, and would probably prefer if I didn’t add any sugar to it, BUT you can easily just add an extra tbsp or 2 to make it that southern, sweet, cornbread, if that’s what you like. The extra sugar won’t hurt anything and the cornbread will come out the same, except sweeter!
On that note though, this has been my staple cornbread recipe for a while now. I never measured anything before I decided I just had to share this recipe for the world. So, I made an excuse to make these with dinner so I could get all the measurements, just for you!  Continue reading

Loaded Vegan Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

If you’re from the south, you likely love sausage gravy, over some delicious buttermilk biscuits. If you’ve ever been to a Huddle House, maybe you’ve even had their loaded biscuits, which are quite similar to these… except these are vegan (and possibly even yummier)!

This is actually a few separate recipes in one. You can use the pieces of them for other things, if you’d like, but this one is a true southern staple! Continue reading

Vegan Eggplant Parmesan

Okay, THIS recipe has been anticipated and requested by so many that I had to get it up for you guys (and it was a great excuse to have it for dinner)! It’s seriously one of my favorite meals and even my meat-loving brother loves it! You can’t go wrong here!

Eggplant is one of those things that is hard to get just right. You have to get the bitterness out of it, but you don’t want it chewy or soggy. You have to find that sweet spot, right in the middle. Really it was a trial and error thing for me, but this recipe has it perfected, I swear by it!  Continue reading
