Lasagna Rollups

Who thinks lasagna roll ups are better than regular lasagna? I do!  I made them for dinner last night and they were delicious. They’re probably as intensive to make as regular lasagna but much easier to eat and serve. I got 12 rolls in my dish which would serve 4-6 people.  So I simply spread…

Cold Tofu Bowl

I’m kinda digging cold tofu since I made it yesterday and really liked it (Veggie Stirfry with Cold Tofu). Today, I again just cut it into cubes but this time I made a little dressing out of this delicious spicy/sweet pepper sauce that I got and olive oil and a touch of maple syrup. I…

Veggie Stirfry with Tofu

It was a hot and cold thing going on with this lunch. I had a hot stirfry with bokchoy and leftover roasted asparagus and squash. Then I had a cold tofu that I just cut up into small cubes and pressed for a couple minutes. I seasoned both components with just teriyaki sauce and sriracha,…

Salmon and Veggie Bowl

This meal started off as leftover salmon and roasted veggies and became a delicious couscous bowl with added boy choy and corn. I just threw the veggies in a pot to warm them up then I added the book choy, corn and broke up the salmon into bit sized pieces. To season it all, I…

Penne with Bolognese

I love making my own pasta sauce. It’s so easy to just grab a jar in the grocery store, but homemade it healthier and tastes so much better (in my opinion). I made the easiest meat sauce to go with pasta, for dinner tonight. I started off by sautéing onions and celery in a splash…

Thai Spaghetti Squash Bowl

This was a pretty guilt free dinner and it was super colourful (it was brighter before I doused it in delicious peanut sauce but still, the colours were there haha). So on the bottom there is a mix of ramen noodles, spaghetti squash and romaine lettuce. Then on top of that, there’s carrots, cucumber, chickpeas…

Sweets and Beets Bowl

I love fall. I love root vegetables. And roasting them is the best. We went to the farmer’s market last weekend and picked up some pretty beets – golden and candy cane. I roasted them up with some sweet potato with oil, salt and pepper. Even though the pieces were kinda small, they did take…

Roasted Vegetable Couscous Salad

Got home after work and I really just wanted to eat something healthy, delicious, and most importantly fast. I chopped some zucchini and bell pepper, tossed them with oil, salt, pepper and oregano and roasted them for about 15 minutes. While that was going, I chopped some olives and tomatoes, then made 1/2 cup (raw)…

Pasta with Roasted Tomato Sauce and Delicata Squash

This was a good meal and very in season. So for the tomato sauce, I roasted some cherry tomatoes in the oven with a little oil, salt and pepper – until they were browning and starting to burst open. Then I roughly pureed them to get a sauce consistency. I had to add about 1/2…

Vegan Shepherds Pie

Fall is a time to make delicious meals that really warm your heart – this was one of them. I made a fantastic shepherds pie, using veggie ground meat and leftover mashed potatoes. The “meat” filling is started with sauteed onions and carrots, then I added a bit of ketchup for some tomato-y-ness. Then I…

Mexican Tortilla Lasagna

This recipe is definitely one to keep. It’s layers of tortillas with quinoa/corn/spice mixture (salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, chili powder) and veggie meat/onions/tomatoes/ peppers. There’s also a but of cheese too. Really good meal and even though it’s the same ingredients as a burrito, eating it as a “lasagna” is much nicer. Super filling and…

Tofu Fajita(ish) Bowl

I don’t know why but I love eating food in bowls instead of on plates.. anyone else feel the same? Anyways, this was the perfect meal that was made for a bowl. Dinner tonight was a quinoa based bowl with baked tofu (oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, cumin, paprika), sauteed peppers and onions, and…
