Cauliflower Rice Étouffe

Move over, Taco Tuesday! It’s Fat Tuesday 🎭 Happy Mardi Gras to those who are celebrating this NOLA tradition. Growing up I went back and forth from Dallas to a little city just outside of NOLA, Destrehan, where my grandparents lived. I have very fond memories of the parades, King Cake and other Mardi Gras…

Nigerian Adalu

I was scrolling on Pinterest yesterday looking for something interesting to make for dinner based on the limited groceries I had and I came across a list of vegan Nigerian recipes. One of the recipes was these chickpea corn fritters which looked really good but the link didn’t work and I had already had tofu…

Lentil Doner Kebab

Unfortunately I can’t take credit for this recipe, it was created by a mastermind in a FB group, The Seitan Appreciation Society. Someone had posted their rendition a couple of days ago and I had to give it a try. The original post is this Seitan Doner Kebab by Steve Cypress. I made a few…

Miso Mushroom Gravy

Super simple, flavorful and nutritional; this gravy would be good on a lot of things. I served it last nigh with some steamed broccoli, my Gluten-free Banana Peel Chick’n & rice or riced cauliflower w some quinoa mixed in. It was a pretty delicious meal. Ingredients: 8 oz mushrooms, sliced 4 oz Red onion, finely…

Single Serving Shepherd’s Pie

This quick, healthy little microwave lunch took me less than 10 mins to make; all from simple ingredients I had on hand. It’s vegan, gluten free, low calorie, fat free and high in protein. Does it get any better than that? It does! It’s full of flavor AND it’s technically a comfort food, right? Let’s…

Gluten-free Banana Peel Chick’n

Another banana peel creation 🚨 I was trying to meal plan for the week and decided I wanted to make another Gluten-Free Roast for my husband’s niece but this time I wanted it to resemble a chicken substitute and I wanted to try using some of the banana peels she helped me collect. It didn’t…

Brownie Bottom Cheezecake w/ Strawberry

I set out to make a Gluten Free Angel Food Cake using Aquafaba for my mom’s birthday today and despite consulting a few Facebook groups I’m in, I had had NO luck. The box cake was a fail, I don’t even want to post a picture. Ohh yea, because I actually didn’t even take one….

Curry Loco Moco w/ Hambagu Steak

I have to give credit to my Facebook group, Vegan Chefs for this winning meal. The original post was by Lisa Myaf, not sure if you can Google her or whatnot but she sure is a genius in the kitchen. I fed end up changing some things around, but it still came out D-lish! Hambagu…

Even Better Butt’r Chick’n

So don’t get confused, this is Butter Chicken, but without butter and yes, without chicken. Wtf, right? It was so good though! I got the idea for the spice list from a Pinterest video/advertisement and wanted to make it my own. The sauce came out so great! I just used some Chick’n that I had…

Gluten-Free Vegan Christmas ‘Ham’

I realized that I meant to post this recipe after Christmas and I totally forgot! I had made this Gluten-Free Seitan Roast after Thanksgiving and couldn’t find anything like it to create a ham alternative for Christmas. I didn’t get any good photos or gave the time to dress it up as I had wanted…

Jessi’s Gingerbread Cake

My husband, son and I took a trip to visit my father’s side of the family this week and being vegan can be a challenge in Oklahoma. I’m lucky that they are more than willing to cater to me and my dietary preferences. The only trouble is that most of the sweets are all non…

Pumpkin Veggie Lasagna

Are you surprised that there’s still pumpkins left? Don’t be; it was huge. Like, it was bigger than my baby huge. I still have plenty in the freezer 😉 Today’s creation was a lasagna with all the veggies that were left in the fridge from this passed week’s haul. zucchini, mushroom, red onions, pumpkin and…

Jerk Pea Pasta Salad

Most of my Facebook feed is filled with posts from different vegan groups I’m in and there’s always some good ideas and recipes posted. The other day ago, I saw someone post this with some blacked chicken, which caught my eye. Unfortunately, I did t have any on hand and didn’t have enough VWG in…

Pumpkin au Gratin Potatoes

Still on that Pumpkin Train, ya’ll! Today we had morning plans so I prepped these potatoes, put them in the oven on a lower heat and they were ready to crispify (aka burn) on broil when my hangry ass got home well passed lunchtime. Don’t mind the charred crunchies on top, if you’re more patient…

Vegan Winter Detox Soup

Today I set out to make this Moroccan Sweet Potato Lentil Soup, also called Winter Detox Soup. It’s packed with protein and full of flavor. Who am I kidding, not just protein but a bunch of other nutrients as well, hence the winter detox. As usual, I changed it around a little, was pressed for…
