Black Bean Burgers with Herby-Mayo

This is one to surely knock your socks off! This rich burger will not let you go hungry, while the bright herby-mayo lightens the dish up entirely. I serve this burger with homemade fries and all the toppings. Ingredients 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed 1/2 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup filtered water 1…

Zucchini and Potato Rostis

Another delicious breakfast recipe. This could be great to add to an appetizer menu as well. It takes a bit longer to prepare (think 30 minute – 1 hour) but is pretty easy and can be done while making other dishes. Ingredients 2 large zucchini 2 russet potatoes, peeled 1 yellow onion 1 tbsp salt…

Falafel

As we are rolling into March and the days are finally getting longer and warmer, I’ve been re-evaluating and fine-tuning my daily routine. My personality is the type that has to plan, research, and think about things in depth before doing and committing to them, so needless to say it can take me some time…

Breakfast Hash

I’m the type that has always struggled with what to eat for breakfast. Some days it’s nothing or just coffee, and others it’s something quick and easy but not sustaining. I came across a recipe for hash and modified it slightly, making it even more filling and delicious! The best part is, it’s all in…

Moroccan Tagine

This is one of our favorite recipes because of the bold spices and memories we have from Morocco. I have yet to invest in an actual tagine (the dome-shaped dish it’s named for), this dish can easily be made in a stock pot. Although I’ve already shared a tagine recipe, this one is a little…

Loaded Vegan Tacos

Here’s something to spice up your next #tacoTuesday – Paired with your favorite hot sauce, there is no bad day for a veggie taco! I am so excited to finally reap some herbs and lettuce from our backyard garden, which I used in this recipe. Ingredients: 1 cup olive oil, divided 1 yellow onion, diced…

Penne Pasta with Peas, Spinach, and Beurre Blanc

Although I tend to make really healthy food decisions, I never have been able to get away from pasta. Obviously, some pastas are better than others (homemade is my favorite when I have some extra time!), but on a busy weeknight, it’s incredibly easy to throw together and it always hits the spot! This week…

Mixed Bean Casserole with Sweet Potato Mash

I love this recipe because it was really easy to throw together and it consists of super healthy ingredients. It took me under and hour to prepare and cook, which I tend to consider do-able on a weeknight. Ingredients: 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 4 tsp salt, and black ground…
