Asian-Baked Tofu and Eggplant Recipe

02

A healthy, simple and filling protein-packed recipe for baked tofu that the whole family can enjoy! After a couple of adjustments, this simple and quick recipe was gobbled up by my toddler, a perfect vegetarian choice for those looking to go meatless. Originally from PBS Food, I made some minimal adjustments, doubling the sauce recipe, substituting half […]

Delicious Veggie Burger Recipe

This recipe is a continuation of my goal to make one new vegetarian meal each week. The bulgur and black bean combo sounded delicious and it just happened to be packed with amazing, all natural protein. I wasn’t sure about the mint, but I cut back a little and still loved it. We also switched it up from […]

Easy Banana Bread

My husband and I always have a ton of bananas on hand for his daily smoothies, but he uses them when they’re still green, so, inevitably, they get too ripe. Luckily, in our house, that means it’s time to make banana bread! I have this easy recipe that I always use that makes it easy to throw in any […]

Quick and Easy Pea Pesto

This quick and easy pea pesto is my go-to meal when I have leftover pureed peas. My son Jake is 8-months old and he’s still very picky about solid foods – he acts like I’m trying to kill him whenever I give him something new! Right now, he is only into oatmeal, applesauce and sweet potato. Green […]

This week, as I continue with my goal to try one new vegetarian recipe a week, I bring you Spiced Pumpkin and Carrot Soup! It’s quick and easy to prepare, but it’s a hearty soup for these cold winter evenings when you just can’t think of what to make for dinner. Serve with a crusty baguette and simple […]

When it comes to entertaining during the holiday season, I tend to run hot or cold. Either I am really into it and start thinking about hosting a wintertime bash months in advance, or I chuckle at the thought and snuggle deeper into my pajamas on the couch, thinking something along the lines of “Ha! […]

With all this heavy holiday eating, I’ve been feeling like I need to find some new vegetarian recipes to round out our diets. My goal in the coming weeks is to try one new vegetarian recipe each week. First up? A warm, simple salad that’s easy to make, and nice and warm for the coming cold. […]

Don’t Have Time to Bake It? Fake It!

I am guilty of spending hours pouring over websites and magazines, stockpiling ideas that I love and plan on trying. I get so into it that I manage to get myself into a bit of a tizzied panic. Who the heck am I kidding? I barely have time to dry my hair in the morning, […]

Creamy Tofu Sauce

creamytofusauce1

This recipe has been passed down from friend to friend via numerous photocopies and, supposedly, the original version came from a vegetarian restaurant based in redondo beach. It goes great on almost anything: salads, burritos, rice bowls, or just as a dip for vegetables or chips. When I’m feeling like eating an all-vegetarian meal, I will make some to […]

Marshmallow Apple Popcorn Balls

Homemade Golden Caramel Popcorn

Popcorn balls are a bit of a weakness for me, but they are not exactly on any nutritionist’s list of healthful snacks and marshmallows usually contain corn syrup, a culinary enemy. Since I am into sharing my apple recipe success stories this month, I thought I would share one that was an absolute fan favorite: […]
