Spring is right around the corner so I figured, what better thing to eat than spring rolls?
They have the word Spring in them after all.
Spring rolls are undoubtedly one of my favorite foods. They’re simple, full of fresh veggies, and an all- around light and healthful meal/appetizer.
So, what are we waiting for?! Let’s dive into the recipe!
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Asian dishes and flavors. Especially tofu and peanut sauce– both of which are included in this bowl! Continue reading Quinoa Tofu Bowls with Spicy Peanut Sauce
I love having healthy snacks on hand when I’m out and about. You feel me?
I usually stick to smoothies, fruit, or energy bites.
Most people are used to energy bars, but I much prefer energy bites, as I find them more convenient and easier to make.
Happy 2017, friends!! Cheers to a year of good health & yummy vegan food!
I thought we should kick off the new year with these HEAVENLY vegan burgers. I’ve been working at this recipe for a while now, and I think I finally cracked the code!
This is the last post of 2016. But there’s no reason to frown, because with the new year comes comes great things. 2017 means new (and even better) recipes, a consistent 2 recipes/week schedule, and a few other things I’m not going to talk about just yet!
With that said, let’s dive into this recipe!
Fried rice used to always be my family’s go-to meal for parties and potlucks, or to enjoy on weekday nights at home. I loved it–but unfortunately, it wasn’t vegan.
Since oyster sauce and fish sauce are key flavors in traditional fried rice, making vegan fried rice taste good, has been a struggle for me.
..So I figured you might love a little last minute brunch inspo.
Last week, I showed you how to veganize scrambled eggs. (a.k.a. Tofu Scramble) That was a success.
“What could be next?” , you ask?
Vegan omelettes, naturally.
“How?” , you may wonder?
