Savory Red Lentil Oatmeal - NO OIL, NO DAIRY!

Savory Red Lentil Oatmeal - NO OIL, NO DAIRY!

Oatmeal continues to be one of the most fundamental building blocks for the plant-based diet – at least in my experience. The opportunity to create diverse meals is significantly high. It may take a few minutes for you to wrap your head around this savory oatmeal recipe, but I think you will find it to be something unique and enjoyable.

In many ways, it sort of meets the need of a good comfort food – it’s relatively easy to prepare, is really suitable at any time of the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner…or maybe a mid-day snack!), and brings some zest that is often lacking from a dish based around oatmeal.

Simple Linguini, Tomato Basil Sauce, and Sautéed Onions

Simple Linguini, Tomato Basil Sauce, and Sautéed Onions

Are you looking to cook a simple, plant-based dinner tonight? The simple linguini, tomato basil sauce, and sauteed onions recipe should do the trick. 

While you can certainly create your own pastas and sauces, it is often easier to just use store bought products. In an effort to make a simple, less time consuming dinner recipe, I opted to use store brand linguini and Francesco Rinaldi's Hearty Tomato & Basil Sauce. This is a great sauce because it is vegan friendly and features minimal ingredients - which is primarily made up of the expected vegetables and natural spices. With this great base, I was able to prepare some sautéed onions while the pasta was cooking!

Easy Saute Vegetables Recipe - NO OIL

This is one of the easiest saute vegetables recipes you will come across. While a traditional "saute" involves the use of oils - I will show you an alternative for making a meal that tastes great without the added fatty oils. It's worth noting that this is a meal that can be made in large quantities and consumed throughout the week if you have a busy lifestyle - and a large amount can be made for a small amount of money as well (the quantity in the photo is for less than $5). 

Authentic Vegan Breaded Eggplant and Guac Tacos

Authentic Vegan Breaded Eggplant and Guac Tacos

One of the hardest foods to give up for many is the wonderful taste of tacos. A major reason why they are so appealing is because it is easy to make them in many different ways. Fortunately, tacos are not just for carnivores among us, but can be easily produced as vegan and vegetarian alternatives. One of my favorite “meat substitutes” is eggplant, because when cooked up, it has a lot of similar qualities in both appearance and texture to meat. It is for this reason I am happy to share with you these special vegan eggplant and guacamole tacos!

The Easiest Chunky Guacamole Recipe in the World

While guacamole is generally thought of as smooth and creamy, I thought I would put together this really easy recipe I sometimes make when I don’t feel like being in the kitchen for a long time. It is easy to make a chunky guacamole, and the great part is that chunks of avocado and tomato seem to break apart in the mouth quite easily. Pair this guacamole with another recipe – like our authentic vegan eggplant and guac tacos – and you are surely going to be left satisfied!
