Roasted Potato Pesto Salad with Spicy Chipotle Chickpeas

Roasted potato pesto salad with spicy chipotle chickpeas. Another delicious vegan recipe for you guys! I’m almost halfway through my vegan month and to be honest, it doesn’t feel different from my usual diet. That doesn’t mean it’s not a bit challenging at times. The most challenging change for me was to omit the milk in my coffee. While I don’t usually drink cow’s milk anyways (personal preference and a slight intolerance), I do add a touch of whole milk in my coffee every morning. Almond milk, coconut milk and soy milk are not the same. Nope. I just can’t tolerate the taste in coffee. So far, I’ve been using cashew milk, which tastes the best in coffee in my opinion. Vegan creamers would…

Healthier Peanut Noodle & Tofu Bowl

Healthier peanut noodle and tofu bowl. My current favorite easy dinner. Have you ever tried a savory peanut butter recipe? If not, you need to try this out. Trust me, this peanut sauce is everything. Funny thing is, this recipe started off as a pasta-free salad with almond vinaigrette. Somehow this happened instead. I have no regrets. Before we moved to Saint John, I used to make peanut noodles almost weekly. Or at least I did for a few months, right before we moved in an apartment with my friend who’s allergic to peanuts. Naturally, this recipe was put on the back burner until I could use peanut butter again. I mean, I could have made a peanut-free version with Wow butter, which could have been good, but I decided to wait. In my opinion, it…

Instant Pot Butter Chickpea

I have a delicious Instant Pot butter chickpea for you guys today. I’m excited to share my first Instant Pot recipe after spending a few months trying to figure out how it works. Yes, a few months. It’s not like I used it every day, but the few times I did, I had no idea how to use it. I promise I read the instructions manual, but something just didn’t click. My visual brain needed videos from YouTube to figure this thing out. So here I am, a few months later, confident enough to share my very own Instant Pot recipe. And it’s a good one! Don’t worry, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can still make this recipe. I included a stove top version just…

Whole Wheat Broccoli Cheddar Pizza

Whole wheat broccoli cheddar pizza. Yes, I said broccoli. On a pizza. I had a few comments about it. Apparently some find broccoli on a pizza a bit weird? Honestly, I never thought for a second that this wasn’t a good idea. To me, you can’t beat greens on a pizza. I’m also obsessed with roasted broccoli, so why not combine both? Trust me, once you try it, you won’t find it weird at all. It’s the most delicious combination, especially when paired with cheddar, garlic and thyme. Green pizza lovers, you know what I mean! Many of you said you were excited for the recipe, so I’m guessing I’m not the only one who thinks this is a good idea? Also, in my defense, some…

Lightened-Up Vegetarian Lasagna

Looking for a good last minute vegetarian Valentine’s Day dinner? If so, I’ve got a great lightened-up vegetarian lasagna for you! For some reason, pasta just seems like the appropriate Valentine’s Day recipe to me. In my opinion, there’s nothing better than a romantic dinner with pasta and wine. I say that, but we celebrated Valentine’s Day this past Saturday and we ended up eating a salad and a tomato tart (I shared our Valentine’s Day menu in my February favorites post if you’re interested).  Since we celebrated Valentine’s Day on the weekend, I feel like it’s over already. Every time someone mentions Valentine’s Day, I need to remind myself that it’s on Wednesday. I guess…
