Apple & Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash & VeeV Sage Cider

A couple months ago I was contacted by VeeV and asked if I wanted to make a dish to pair with one of their signature cocktails for an upcoming feature. Without hesitation I gave them an emphatic YES! I love VeeV. As you may remember, during the month of September I made weekly cocktails using this earth-friendly Açaí Spirit: my take on a mojito, pomegranate ginger concoction, citrusy basil spritzer and a warm apple cider. Needless to say I was stoked at the chance to work with VeeV!!

Spaghetti Squash & Kale Sauté

I’m not used to cooking for more than two people, but this past weekend I was at my mom’s place and found myself making dinner for five. Given that I was the only vegan, I wanted to make it tasty but still keep it in my cheap, gluten-free MoFo theme. Everyone loves quinoa and kale, right? Right. So I went with that…threw in a little extra stuff here and there and voila! Family meal.

Kelp Noodles with Cilantro Pesto

I fell in love with kelp noodles a couple months ago after trying them for the first time at a raw restaurant in Santa Monica called M.A.K.E. I thought it sounded weird, but was feeling adventurous that particular weekend so I ordered it. Love at first bite for sure. I can’t remember exactly what they did to theirs, but it was heavenly. I knew I had to try making my own versions at home.

Kale Chickpea Tomato Hash

Happy First Day of Vegan MoFo 2013 y’all!! This is my second year participating and I was stupid ambitious enough to pick a theme this time around. All of my Vegan MoFo posts will be gluten-free and cheap! I always hear from non-vegans that one of things holding them back from making the switch is that they think it’s super expensive to go vegan. Not true.

Quinoa Stir Fry Bowl

I’m not going to lie to y’all. I have been eating horribly for the past few weeks. I started eating gluten again, which immediately made me feel bloated and disgusting. Most of my meals consisted of crackers or bread. Maybe some nuts. Not a veggie or fruit to speak of. Needless to say I came down with a horrible cold last week and that’s when I knew I had to get back on track and start taking care of myself again. What’s the best health care? Food, of course!

Beyond Meat Tacos with Peach Avocado Salsa

One uninspired evening I casually wandered into the grocery store down the street; with no plan in mind I found myself in front of the vegan foods section staring at a package of Beyond Meat. I’d been hearing all the buzz around this miracle meat alternative for awhile now and was super curious to try it out.

Tomato Cilantro Pasta

If you’re a regular follower of this blog you may have come to realize that I’m a huge fan of pasta as demonstrated here and here. I love making variations of these dishes because, let’s face it, they are easy, delicious and you can do so many different things with it and never get bored (maybe that’s just me?).

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Recently my husband has been into cooking (hallelujah!). I guess all I had to do was go away for a week and let him fend for himself to spark the inspiration! The other night he even went grocery shopping on his way home from work and we came up with these spicy Mexican stuffed peppers. They came out pretty awesome.
