Chickpea and Couscous Stuffed Red Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a classic vegetarian entree, maybe a bit less popular these days, but a common dish nonetheless. It’s definitely a dish I’ve been served on more then one occasion, typically filled with 90% rice, 10% cheese. The problem with this is 1) they are so not filling, one pepper and I’m still hungry, 2) …

Vegan Cheeseburger Pizza with Vodka Sauce and Caramelized Onions

Caramelized onions, crumbled veggie burger, fresh basil, and delicious creamy vodka sauce. That is all it takes to make this delicious pizza.

Roasted Garlic and Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese

I eat a lot more mac and cheese style dishes now that I’m vegan. Which is odd, because I did really love cheesy pasta in my pre-gan days.

But whether you are still dealing with near freezing temperatures, or, like me, overheating in a t-shirt while walking your dog in the afternoon, asparagus is finding its way into your grocery store. It’s certainly the best, and some …

Corned Tempeh Pasties

You want a pasty? I want a pasty. Corned tempeh pasties! Flakey layered pastry dough filled with a zesty corned tempeh and mashed potato filling that is peppered with scallions, which provide an oniony bite. A riff on your typical meat and potatoes pasty, but with healthy tempeh, which provides a great meaty texture without all the heaviness. …

Chipotle Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

There’s this idea that enchiladas are a complicated dish to make, but that really doesn’t have to be the case! I certainly fell under this impression, and didn’t try to make them for years after I moved into my post-college kitchen (… I mean, apartment). The funny thing is, I would make smothered burritos, which …
