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.

Easy Saute Vegetables Recipe - NO OIL

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

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!

Avocado & Cilantro Rice

Avocado & Cilantro Rice

Our avocado and cilantro rice recipe is a unique take on a rice dish that really allows us to explore some different flavors and textures. Often a struggle for some who are transitioning to a plant-based diet is being able to keep the food they are eating feeling fresh. If you are well adjusted to eating plain old rice, but haven't really explore many plant-based alternatives, I think you may just find what you are looking for here!
