Loaded Baked Potatoes

These loaded baked potatoes are new favorite at our house. They’re so easy to make and you can play with the toppings to change them up. I went pretty unconventional by topping these with kale chips and a delicious cilantro cashew cream that is to die for. I also topped them with a “Parmesan” from Oh…

Juice Away the Germs -- Epicurean Vegan

Juice Away the Germs: A Cure for the Common Cold

Sure, it’s pretty bold of me to claim I’ve got the cure for the common cold, but hang with me a moment here; I’ve done some fieldwork to back me up. It’s been a long time since I had a cold, in fact, I can’t recall the last time I did. I have, however, gotten…

Quick & Easy Quinoa Chili -- Epicurean Vegan

Quick & Easy Quinoa Chili

Some nights call for a warm, hearty meal. This one is also packed with healthy ingredients such as quinoa, beans, and avocado. I love regular ol’ chili with beans, tomatoes, and ground veggie sausage or crumbles, but sometimes, you just need a change! Between the quinoa and beans, you’ll get a healthy dose of protein,…

Lentil Burritos with Coconut-Garlic Cashew Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Lentil Burritos with Coconut-Garlic Cashew Sauce

I’ve made similar burritos, but changed these up a little. You might be amazed at how easy these are to make, and in just over 30 minutes. I love the curry-garlic-coconutty-cashew flavor of the sauce which is perfectly matched with the lentils and veggies tucked inside a warm tortilla. They’re a great meal when you want…

Chopped Greek Salad with Tofu Feta -- Epicurean Vegan

Chopped Greek Salad with Tofu Feta

I wish I could say I eat healthy all year round, but there are definitely times (especially during the holidays) when I don’t eat as many fruits and veggies like I should. So what better time than the new year to recommit to fresh, non-packaged meals? This Greek salad is the epitome of fresh. The…

Tofu-Veggie Noodle Bowls with Peanut Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Tofu-Veggie Noodle Bowls with Peanut Sauce

Even in the wintertime, a fresh and tasty noodle bowl can really hit the spot. I sure love my soups when the weather gets chilly, but these bowls with lightly sauteed tofu, fresh greens and steamed veggies, also fit the bill quite nicely. They’re also pretty simple to throw together, so you won’t be slaving…

Stuffed Dates -- Epicurean Vegan

Stuffed Dates

Happy holidays! The last couple of days have consisted of family and friend get-togethers, which means lots of great food. Christmas Eve was an appetizer night, so I brought the amazing Fiesta Taco Potato Crisps from The Oh She Glows Cookbook, and my spinach dip. For Christmas breakfast, we feasted on our favorite Hash Brown…

Meat is for Pussies

Cookbook Review: Meat is For Pussies

That’s right. Meat is for pussies . . . well, according to the book’s author, John Joseph. Joseph is the front man for the punk band, Cro-Mags, has been plant-based eating for 34 years, and is an Ironman triathlete. The cover may not be sporting the typical colorful photograph of the author preparing a veggie-packed…

Creamy Mushroom Soup -- Epicurean Vegan

Creamy Mushroom Soup

I love soup season. Although, I tend to make soups year round. This one is particularly fitting for winter because mushrooms pack an immune-boosting punch. Those winter sniffles and coughs don’t stand a chance against this cold-fighting stew. I added a potato, which is certainly optional; I just thought it added a bit more heartiness….

Cinnamon-Almond Croissants -- Epicurean Vegan

Cinnamon-Almond Croissants

Puff pastry can sometimes be a vegan’s best friend. I had one sheet of it in the freezer, so I stuck it in the fridge the night before so that it would be thawed by morning. Otherwise, it takes about 45-60 minutes if you take it out and set it on the counter to thaw….

Groatmeal with Fresh Fruit -- Epicurean Vegan

Groatmeal with Fresh Fruit

When it comes to breakfast, it can be a little lack luster for me. The Tenth Grader and I try to hit the gym in the mornings before school, so I typically inhale a Larabar at 5:45 a.m. and when I come home, I’m just wanting something quick. Sadly, I usually end up with a Boca…
