Sweet Potato, Carrot, and Curry Soup

I wanted something warming, health, filling, and delicious. There is also a plethora of sweet potatoes and carrots in my home. I also wanted something versatile and healthy, two things I think that are highly important to me. Now some spices added: All cooked and blended. Once the blending was done I added 2 cups…

Roasted Cauliflower Beet Soup

Sitting in my fridge was this package of LoveBeets that I could not figure out how I wanted to cook with them. Usually these will be sliced up and used in sandwiches or on hearty salads, I’ll even dice them up for enchiladas. I love roasted butternut squash beet enchiladas, but this post is not for…

Golden Milk Overnight Oats

Give me strong flavors whether they be spicy, tangy, sweet, tart, powerful, what have you, I like to try food of all sorts. That goes for breakfast too!   I have enjoyed a delicious Golden Milk Latte from time to time when we visit a coffee shop to trying curry ice cream at a local…

So for our first relatively unjetlagged night home I cooked us a vegan Shepherd’s Pie that the family dubbed Gardener’s Pie instead.  It was very delicious and I didn’t use Worcestershire sauce (it…

Seitan Recipe

My first attempt making seitan, and it was successful!

Tomato Soup

Hello Winter and the dark days you bring. Thankfully during the winter months eating soup every day for two out of three meals is acceptable. Today I was craving tomato soup, but there was none to be found in my cupboard (this is often the case in this house). This soup grew into a recipe…

Conflicted

Recently, I have been feeling conflicted about MY meat consumption. Why? Your guess is as good as mine at this point. So, a couple of weeks back I decided to just do a “Vegetarian Challenge” (?) for myself. This post is not about that, this one will be more about the background of it all….
