Chunky Vegetable Chili & Rice

Chunky Vegetable Chili & Rice

I had a chili very similar to this while Tom and I were on our Scotland Cycling trip. We stopped at the only pub in the middle of the Isle of Lewis and Harris, super hungry and cold, and the owners made me this amazing chili! If you're ever on the Isle of Lewis and Harris be sure to go to the Loch Erisort Inn! Until then, you can make this chili and dream of being on the beautiful island! 

My Favorite Fall Salad

My Favorite Fall Salad

This salad is so amazingly good! Its crunchy, sweet, salty and full of fresh and crispy ingredients. I've made a vinaigrette to go along with this salad, but its also good with a dash of Follow Your Heart Vegan Blue Cheese Dressing.

Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup

In the need of some serious comfort food? Make this super simple split pea soup - it takes about an hour to get those split peas soft and chewy, but only about 5 minutes to put it together. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the amazing aromas as this soup comes together.

A Vegan Mother's Day

A Vegan Mother's Day

I'm a firm believer in living a plant based lifestyle for one major reason - to live a long and healthy life. According to the CDC the top disease threat to women is heart disease. But we can change that by changing our lifestyles and eating a whole food, plant based diet. And here are some incredibly delicious and healthy recipes to treat Mom to this Mother's Day. We love our Moms, and if food is love, eat on!

Awesome Almond Salad

Awesome Almond Salad

Do salads sometimes leave you still wanting something more? Not totally satisfying or filling? Try out my awesome Almond Salad and you'll be full throughout the rest of the day! Its one of my favorite lunch time meals especially during the work week when I barely have time to scarf it down! With minimal prep work you'll be happy you spent the extra 20 minutes getting this salad put together ahead of time!

BBQ Jackfruit Pizza

BBQ Jackfruit Pizza

I'm going to say it - this is the best pizza I've ever had. It was super easy to make, so much better than frozen, and cheaper than delivery. It reminds me exactly of a BBQ chicken pizza, only its made with BBQ jackfruit, which is so much healthier. Chicken may be deemed the healthy meat, but its full of cholesterol and saturated fat, while jackfruit has 0 cholesterol, 0 saturated fat, 739 awesome mg of potassium, and is a super source of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, electrolytes, fiber, and protein. So not only does this pizza taste good, its incredibly good for you! 

Roasted Veg Bowl with Creamy Basil & Parsley Sauce

Roasted Veg Bowl with Creamy Basil & Parsley Sauce

I love this roasted vegetable bowl because you can create a bunch of different versions. Just swap out some of the vegetables for other ones and top over quinoa instead of rice. This bowl is a great reboot if you've been struggling with eating healthy. Not only is it delicious it also makes you feel amazing! 

Curried Cauliflower, Couscous, & Potato Salad

Curried Cauliflower, Couscous, & Potato Salad

Great ready for some SERIOUS deliciousness. If you’re looking to mix up your potato salad recipe, give this a try. Roasted potatoes, steamed cauliflower, soft couscous, and curry powder! A few more ingredients and you’ve got a delicious new salad to enjoy! 

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Chickpea Salad Sandwich

Looking for a plant based, vegan version of an egg salad sandwich? Look no further! I haven't had egg salad in years and have been missing it, until now! There's something about the combination of mashed chickpeas, Vegenaise, celery, pickle relish, and dill that tastes JUST LIKE an egg salad sandwich! 

Samosa Soup

Samosa Soup

This soup has all the delicious ingredients of a samosa, and the warm and comforting aromas of a savory soup. It looks a little complex, but its super quick and easy to put together! 

Grilled Ratatouille

Grilled Ratatouille

I love ratatouille. Originally a French peasant’s dish, this is a super easy yet super delicious recipe you can make in under and hour. Normally I would roast the veggies in my oven, but there’s something summery about grilling the veggies and smelling their aromas while you patiently wait in the outdoors. I made this with two different sauces, tomato and pesto, so pick which one you would like best, or if you can’t decide, make them both like I did. (Don't worry if you don't have a grill - you can easily make this recipe by roasting the vegetables in your oven.)

Taco Salad

Taco Salad

Its Friday - you're tired from a long week, who wants to think about making dinner? If you think you can't eat healthy fast food I'm here to change your mind! Fast Food Friday recipes can be ready in under 30 minutes and they're super delicious and filling! 

Beet Reuben Sandwich

Beet Reuben Sandwich

One of the things I’ve really missed since going vegan is a good reuben sandwich. Well, those days are over! The combination of beets, sauerkraut, homemade vegan thousand island dressing, vegan cheese, pickles, and rye bread makes this sandwich everything I’ve missed!
