Pasta e Fagioli

Folks with Italian heritage are probably familiar with Pasta e Fagioli. It’s a staple in many Italian homes. Its name means pasta and beans which are the main ingredients. Most recipes are likely accidentally vegetarian or vegan! I didn’t grow up with it and feel like I missed out! This recipe comes together quickly, is […]

Kale in Creamy Garlicky Dressing

Any person that’s been vegan for a while will have a go-to kale salad. I actually have two. This Kale in Creamy Garlicky Dressing is our first favorite. This salad is similar to the one Whole Foods in Atlanta usually has on the bar. And, it has no added oil. This recipe will be for […]

Pancakes, whole food plant based style

Just because I’m not cooking with oil, refined sugars or refined flours anymore doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy pancakes. And fluffy delicious pancakes at that! We’ve been making all of our meals in the RV since we left Portland. So it was time for a little treat, a break from our usual oatmeal for breakfast. […]

Indian Lentil Burgers

Since I had the heart attack, most processed foods are right out. Even the best of them have too much sodium and fat. Living in an RV, we rely heavily on veggie burgers. As much as I enjoy cooking, after a long travel day, we need something quick! So I started hunting around for whole […]

If you miss buffalo wings, this healthier version might scratch that itch for you. Roasted cauliflower is delicious on its own, but coated in sriracha buffalo sauce it becomes spectacular!

Red Lentil Soup with Greens

How do you know Kevin is out of town? Because I made a soup! Specifically Red Lentil Soup with Greens. Why did I wait until Kevin was out of town? I’m happy eating soup as a meal but he is not. It doesn’t seem like a full meal to him. But he’s missing out! Red […]

Cabbage Crunch Salad with Vegan Chicken

When visiting Kevin’s family in upstate New York, his aunt gave us a lovely farm fresh head of green cabbage. I don’t usually buy whole heads of cabbage. If you have a standard RV fridge, you’ll understand why. Sure, you can get one. But then you’ll have room for nothing else. So I immediately got […]

Smoky Tempeh

April 20, 2017

When people decide to tackle a plant-based diet, they usually don’t start with tempeh. While tofu is pretty ubiquitous, tempeh is still a little out there for many people. Tempeh is a fermented soy food that originated in Indonesia. The brand we see most in the U.S. is Lightlife, but we always try the regional […]
