All in Snacks/dips/sauces
This vegan mushroom stroganoff is so comforting and satisfying. It’s rich and filling and has an amazingly small amount of butter for how super creamy it is. And though it seems like a lot of work, it’s really pretty quick and easy to pull together! Give it a whirl, girl!
I’m usually a fan of the heavier type sauces; your red sauces, cream sauces, and cheesey type sauces. Well, the husband usually favors a lighter sauce so I try to make them every so often ;-)
This toasted sesame hummus is full of warm and savory spices to fill your senses as well as your hummus-loving belly! This one I came up with on a whim and It is certainly one I will be making again!
I made a version of this sauce on a whim a couple of years ago and the husband has not stopped asking for it since. We both love Thai cuisine and this is my version of a common Thai-style peanut sauce that is quick to whip up and really satisfying!
I was looking for something new to try and, since I’ve been on a bit of a Beyond Meat sausage kick, I decided to mix things up and go with a savory snack rather than an evening meal—mini hand pies to the rescue!
You caught me. You found me out. I confess: I love hummus. Buy why shouldn’t I???? Hummus is infinitely customizable and full of protein… and OH SO good. However you make it, hummus is super quick and easy.
A party is not complete without a big bowl of warm nacho cheese and chips to dip. I mean, who doesn’t like nacho cheese?? Monsters, that’s who.
Lately I’ve been eating this “tuna” salad all by itself—just me and a spoon. But, as I’ve made this so many times now, I know that it’s also super good on top of a large salad, warmed up as part of an open face sandwich, and so good as a dip with toasted pita triangles.
When I wake up to cold and snow and general crappiness in the weather all I want to do is curl up on the sofa with a book or a TV marathon. And, of course, super delicious comfort food! What came to mind today was my grandmothers banana bread.
I’m a huge fan of avocado but it’s not necessarily a pasta sauce in the making. But, combine avocado with white beans, a bit of sesame oil, and seasonings and you have a versatile sauce that works warm or cold, on pasta or over greens. It’s amazing!
Most of the Thai, Indian, or Chinese inspired dishes I make are me just winging it in the kitchen. After making an impromptu batch of dan dan style noodles and sauce the other day I decided that this was one recipe that I needed to recreate (and write down!).
Pasta is pretty much my go to meal. If I’m celebrating, it’s pasta. If I’m sad, it’s pasta. If I just can’t decide what I want to eat—you guessed it—pasta. I heart pasta!
This was my first crack at creating a specific type of mock meat and I think it turned out really well :-) All in all, I’m super pleased with this and my weekly home made pizza night will benefit greatly from my experimentation!
I love a good hummus. Frankly, I likely eat far too much hummus… but, is there really any such thing as too much when it comes to hummus. No. I say no.
This is my first crack at a feta-style cheese which takes advantage of the solidness and flavor-absorption qualities of tofu. Yep, tofu. Before you wrinkle your nose up at this idea just take a breath and give it a chance.
There are definitely recipes out there that will yield a more silky and solid type of mozzarella but they call for much more difficult to get ingredients. I’m sure that those recipes are amazing, but I prefer to use a no fuss, no muss approach :-)
French toast is one of those things that seems difficult to accomplish on a plant-based diet given its dependence upon eggs. But, through a lot of research, I’ve put together a recipe that replicates it to a tee!
What makes this granola better than that crappy store-bought kind is its crunch factor. And the fact that isn’t not too sweet and has a wonderful savory component I haven’t found in any store-bought granola.
Donuts are an amazing food; they can cheer you up when you’re feeling down and they are a go-to food for parties and celebrations. Loved by young children and old farts alike, donuts are delightful and these raspberry donuts are no exception!
This past weekend we picked up over 3 pounds of bright, red, fragrant beauties which I decided to turn into pasta sauce. The best pasta sauce takes a lot of time, but fairly few ingredients.
