Simple Air Fried Tofu

The air fryer is an appliance everyone should have in their kitchen. Mine is the Cuisinart that is readily available at Costco. Not only does it air fry, but it’s also a toaster, oven, and convection oven. We are on our second one. Our first lasted a few months past its third birthday. The warranty,Continue reading “Simple Air Fried Tofu”

Vegan Overnight Oats

Now that summer is here, it might be nice to have some cold breakfast meals that don’t include cereal that comes from a box! As a vegetarian, I used to make overnight oats frequently in the warmer months, and so I decided to veganize my basic recipe, with a few add ins! The new additions?Continue reading “Vegan Overnight Oats”

The Best Vegan Collard Greens

I wasn’t really a fan of cooked greens until I was an adult. It’s a crime of epic proportions to have missed out on a childhood of this delicious Southern dish when, in fact, I did grow up in “the South.” I didn’t really start to like these until I met my husband! Even backContinue reading “The Best Vegan Collard Greens”

Vegan Cream of Mushroom and Rice Soup

Vegan Cream of Mushroom and Rice Soup You know, sometimes you’re just a girl, standing in front of the fridge, asking it to inspire you to make something amazing for dinner out of nothing.

I think the key to making aContinue reading “Vegan Vegetable Soup with Farro”

Vegan Greek Style Green Beans

One of the things I’ve missed this year in Richmond, the city of summer festivals, is the Greek Festival. Obviously, it was canceled due to Covid. And although there are fewer things to enjoy there now that I’m vegan, I still love the green beans!  Since I love to try to recreate dishes I loveContinue reading “Vegan Greek Style Green Beans”

Easy BBQ Jackfruit

Do you love BBQ? It’s a favorite for my family. But since I’m the lone vegan, I make my own. I even make my own coleslaw, and then we have shared sides. Jackfruit itself is an intimidating item, but buying it canned really simplifies this dish. It took me a couple of tries to getContinue reading “Easy BBQ Jackfruit”

Vegan Chili Verde

We had one of those nights last week when I couldn’t figure out what we were going to have for dinner. None of the suggestions I made suited my teenager. And then I peeked in the pantry for ideas and spotted a jar of Trader Joe’s salsa verde, and that’s when inspiration struck. Sure, itContinue reading “Vegan Chili Verde”

Vegan One Dish Chorizo Rice with Peppers and Onions

During my last trip to Kroger, I was lucky enough to find a huge bargain. They marked down their Simple Truth vegan chorizo sausage links to 45 cents. That is not a typo! Of course, I bought some. These pack a whopping 27g of plant-based protein per sausage. I’ve never tried this seitan chorizo before,Continue reading “Vegan One Dish Chorizo Rice with Peppers and Onions”
