Quinoa Aglio Olio (vegan)

This dish was a recipe of my own creation, and it combines food from three different cultures! I try to do this every once in a while, by throwing Italian ingredients in a quesadilla or taco, or by using Asian seasonings in a Middle Eastern dish, but I think this one might be my favorite […]

Healthy Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream

I came across a recipe for this “ice cream” a couple weeks ago, and it’s been on my mind ever since! If you leave out the chocolate chips on top, it’s vegan. Not to mention, super healthy and incredible delicious!   Ingredients: 1 frozen banana 2 tbsp cocoa powder 1 heaping tbsp creamy peanut butter […]

Rainbow Quinoa

I am so excited to share this recipe, because I not only made quinoa for the first time, but I completely made up the recipe! True, this is not very complex and there are not too many spices involved, but having never cooked quinoa before it could have turned out disastrous. The only *oops* part […]

Asian-Style Tofu & Edamame

This dinner is very simple, very easy, and not too fancy. Very few ingredients are involved, but it’s so delicious (and vegan)! It’s no secret how much I love tofu, but I love edamame just as much. It is so healthy, easy to make, and tasty with nothing more than sea salt. Ingredients: 1 Package […]

Effortless Southwestern Bowl for the Lazy Chef

I am the worst offender when it comes to being a lazy chef. I always want a delicious, non-frozen, healthy meal from scratch, but sometimes it is just way too hard to get off the couch. Today was one of those days, so I solved my paradoxical food problem with the Southwestern Bowl. This recipe […]

Parmesan Baked Tofu

Who says chicken gets to have all the fun flopping around in a pile of breadcrumbs and cheese? Tofu wanted to join in the party, so I made it happen. I experimented with this on a whim, and it turned out great! When making dinner with your favorite carnivore, you can use exactly the same […]

Easy Peasy Pasta

This tasty pasta & veggies dish is so easy you won’t even break a sweat, unless your stove gives off more heat than your furnace like mine does. Everyone needs a couple “go-to” pasta and vegetable dishes, and this is one of mine. Easy Peasy Pasta (vegan if you skip the parmesan cheese): Pasta of […]

Willy Nilly Chili

I call this dish Willy Nilly Chili because you can throw in ingredients “willy nilly” without messing up the recipe. I’ve made this chili dozens of time and I don’t think I’ve made it the exact same way twice, but it always turns out great. I originally based this recipe off of one in a […]

5-minute vegan lunch

After my run today I decided to whip up a quick, vegan, protein-filled lunch. I used a recipe found in PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook called “Dorm-room Ramen Delight.” True, I don’t live in a dorm room, but I’m still a poor college student and still love Ramen noodles. I added a cut-up Morningstar Farms spicy […]
