Vegan & Gluten-Free Black Bean Burgers

Every vegan and vegetarian cook knows that an important recipe to have in their arsenal is a foolproof black bean burger. Sure, they sell a bunch of frozen versions, but you know that yours is better. And an extra problem for us vegetarians with celiac disease is that 90% of the pre-made veggie burgers in […]

Spicy Black Bean “Meatballs”

The base of the recipe for these spicy black bean meatballs is exactly the same as the black bean burger. The only difference is that it’s now in spherical form! To make these I used the leftover mixture from the black bean burgers. If you use the entire recipe, you’re going to end up with […]

Gluten-Free Black Bean Burger

Black bean burgers used to be my absolute favorite thing to eat out at restaurants. Most burger joints in Bloomington, IN (where I live) are very accommodating to vegetarians, and it was honestly difficult to pick the best black bean burger in town. Unfortunately, since I’ve been gluten-free, I’ve been unable to indulge, since most […]

Remix Your Leftovers: Vegan Chili Tacos!

If you’re like me, you probably cook this delicious pot of chili, and end up having oodles and oodles of leftovers. I know I’ve said this before, but one of my favorite ways to cook is by remixing leftovers and turning them into something new. So, because I had all this leftover chili, I thought […]

Danielle’s “Famous” Black Bean & Corn Chili

I say that it’s my famous chili…that’s sort of a lie. Definitely not famous, but it is definitely one of my most signature dishes that I make all the time in the winter. The best and worst thing about this chili is that I don’t really have a set recipe. It turns out totally different […]

Vegan Black Bean Taquitos

When was the last time you ate taquitos? For me, it was many many years ago, back when I still ate meat. We used to get the gigantic pack of frozen beef taquitos that you could just pop in the microwave, and bing! Delicious. Of course, the meat no longer sounds delicious, but the crispy […]

Remix Your Leftovers: Make a Pizza!

We’ve all had the experience of cooking way too much food, eating leftovers for 3 subsequent meals, and getting extremely sick of it. My usual solution to that problem is to remix the ingredients into something new! For example, I had previously made black bean & cilantro tacos, gluten-free pasta with vodka tomato sauce, and […]

New Nachos

Lately I’ve been trying to make some foods in a Mexican style but with different ingredients. My favorite burrito of all time contains black beans, spinach, jack cheese, and fresh salsa. It is amazing, so I attempted to translate this burrito into a delicious nachos snack, and it was perfect! Tortilla Chips (I like Tostitos […]

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 […]
