Greek Lemon Rice

Another Pinterest Idea turned Jessi Creation! I saw this One-Skillet Baked Greek Lemon Chickpeas and Rice and wanted to make a smaller, lower calorie version based on my nutritional needs for the day. I’d say this was a success. I used my favorite Chickwheat Shreds as the protein. You’ll have to look those up if…

Cheezy Broccoli & Rice

So my mom used to make this ‘Broccoli Rice Casserole’ dish that was one of my favs. I happened to see something like it while searching through dinner ideas on Pinterest but I didn’t want to make such a big quantity, not did I want to make anything complicated. Well this is quite similar, no…

Lemongrass Thai Peanut Noodles

So I’ve had this squeeze bottle of lemongrass in my fridge for quite some time (don’t worry, it’s still good) because I have a tendency to pick up random things at the grocery store if it sounds or looks good to me. Sometimes I have an intention of using it, sometimes I just imagine that…

Vegan Frittata

Made this awesome frittata today from My Pure Plants but you know me, always changing something up! I pretty much stuck to the recipe but I didn’t have mushrooms on hand so I was hoping that it would still come out. I also used a Cast Iron Skillet instead of a non-stick pan, which I…

Deconstructed Green Enchilada

Such a simple, 5 ingredient dinner. Literally – 5 ingredients! Granted, some of the ingredients are prepped ahead of time, like the meat substitute and the salsa which was store bought, but seriously this couldn’t not have been an easier or quicker dinner for Mexican Night (my modified Taco Tuesday). I was able to make…

Pretty in Pink Pasta

As usual, I wanted to try a recipe from Pinterest, but I had to change it around a little. I had intended for it to have a little less sauce and a little more pasta but this actually came out really well, and not quite like the Pretty in Pink Vegan Pasta that I based…

Vegan Tikka Masala

So I actually got the idea from this recipe from an email I received from one of our local restaurants that sends out their new menu when they change it. It’s a cool little progressive, hipster type place in Delray Beach called Dada’s. If you’re local, I’m sure you know of it and love it….

Easy Vegan Cheeze Sauce

I adapted this recipe from a few different sources and boy is this sauce versatile. I’ve used it for sooo many things, Nachos, Totchitos, Mac & Cheese, Mexican Lasagna, Beer Cheeze Soup, etc. The recipes I based it off of either call for coconut milk and/ or cornstarch, which I find are unnecessary for a…

Vegan Indian ‘Butter’ Peas & Veggies

I wish I could give credit where it’s due but I have no idea where I found the basis for this recipe. It’s an Indian inspired dish that I saw somewhere and saved. It was appealing because it seemed quick and easy. If I had to name it, it’s sort of like a Vegan Indian…

Vegan Mexican Lasagna

I found this recipe on Pinterest by Kathy’s Vegan Kitchen and decided to modify it based on what I had and what I like, which is what I usually do. This was a great basis for a recipe, it just needed a little tweeting in my opinion. To my surprise, it turned out to be…
