Vegan “tuna” salad
This vegan tuna salad is one of our go to meals when we are feeling super hungry but don’t want to cook.
Mac and Cheeze Stuffed Acorn Squash
No nuts in this recipe, and all of its deliciousness is derived from plant power
Mom’s Creamy Cauliflower Soup
So simple, so delicious. You can't beat yummy, easy, and healthy, so let's get cooking!
Oat-chata from OATrageous Oatmeals
Horchata is a traditional Mexican beverage made with homemade rice milk, cinnamon and sweeteners. I’ve taken liberties with it here by adding in oats and almonds. It’s amazing served over ice.
Chock-full of fruits and vegetables, this low-fat cake tastes great, stays very moist, and is even tastier the next day.
Lots of legumes and seasonings make this chili as delicious as it is easy to make.
The creaminess of the sauce and filling contrast nicely with the slight crunch of the “noodles” in this low-fat, low-carb version of lasagna.
Okay, here comes the beauty of the pressure cooker. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, the recipe will remain the same, but you will need to allow the soup to simmer for at least an hour until the vegetables are soft.

Cooking Light did a vegetarian section on beans in this last issue, and this is adapted from their recipes and is really great.
2 tsp water
1 cup celery…

Instead of a smoothie, get your greens and fruit in this very tasty and fruity vegan spinach salad.
Serve this delicious hash for breakfast or make it for dinner if you want to and serve it with corn tortillas, or roll into a burrito.
- Ridiculously Easy Jalapeño PicklesAt the beginning of last fall, the jalapeño plants in my garden went into overdrive, and I found myself with a whole bunch of peppers all at one time. Now, I love jalapeños. I put slices of them, seeds and all, on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and burgers all summer long. I love the heat and […]
- Confetti Bowl with Eclectic Garden PestoWhen Mike and Kelly bought their house 3 summers ago, the only noteworthy feature in the yard was a low growing weeping red Japanese maple. Except for a few unremarkable shrubs, the yard was pretty much empty except for the grass over uneven ground. Since then, they have applied their vision and talents to transforming […]
