A sweet and bright citrus salad, perfect for the winter time with a creamy lemon tahini dressing!
Happy weekend! I’m popping in quickly today to share a winter citrus quinoa salad that has been a staple for me the past few weeks. In an effort to keep with my intentions for the year, I wanted to find a salad that is filling, easy to throw together and hearty enough that I won’t be hangrily tearing through the cupboards for a snack in an hour. Mixing in a handful of pre-cooked quinoa and drizzling over a creamy lemon tahini dressing that even a tahini hater like me can love all seem to do the trick. (more…)

I have to confess, nowadays I don’t do nearly as much clothes shopping as I used to (hello, I love you capsule wardrobe!), but kitchen tool shopping? That’s probably never going to be off the table for me. I will almost always get lost and spend way too much time wandering through the aisles of spatulas, cookie cutters and all the other things I probably don’t need to add to my kitchen but kinda/always/really want to.

(That’s a lie, but there are never enough tacos) I also realized that I really haven’t (more…)
Roasted broccoli salad is such a perfect pairing with crunchy pecans and sweet apricots!
My morning has already kind of gone like this: ‘WHAT I didn’t set my alarm?!’ then ‘Crap I still really need to work out.’ which cuts to ‘Dang it I really need to wash my hair but I don’t have time and OMG are we running out of hot water again?! (our water heater has been on the fritz)’ which led to ‘AHHH what am I going to take for lunch to prevent myself from eating a granola bar and fries for a meal?!’. Then, I remembered (more…)
A simple and hearty vegan minestrone soup loaded with potatoes, carrots, and more veggies! It’s super quick and easy, and it takes just 30 minutes to make.
A while ago, I mentioned wanting to include more savory recipes here on the blog, so here we go! These may be few and far between, or they may be more of a weekly thing, we’ll see how it goes. For now, I wanted to fill a void that I found when I was searching around for a vegan minestrone soup recipe last week, especially one that didn’t have beans as the main ingredient. (more…)
Let’s do savory today! Sweets are nice, but when you are trying to fit into a kind of form fitting wedding dress (one month to go!!), you have to go with the savory side of things. I tend to shy away from vegan ricotta since it never seems to quite get close enough to the real cheese flavor. (more…)
