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…

Tomato and Asparagus Quiche

Dinner tonight was super simple and this would be a delicious meal any time of day.Quiche is easy to prepare, especially when you use a frozen pie shell, like I did. Once you have the crust, all that’s left is filling it with some veggies, cheese and meat (I kept mine vegetarian but you could…

Greek Watermelon and Chickpea Salad

I know my previous post is a Greek salad, but this one has a twist. Instead of this one being lettuce based, I used watermelon and chickpeas. Then I added feta cheese, kalamata olives, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, chili flakes and oregano (same dressing as last time).  This was a really nice…

Easy Peasy Greek Salad

August was a busy month for me – travelling and working – so I really haven’t been cooking too much 😦 I’ve been having quite simple meals (like this one). This salad was super simple and entirely from scratch. The salad ingredients are iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomato, kalamata olives, avocado and feta cheese. The dressing…

Vibrant Pasta Salad

I know I’ve made pasta salad posts before – they’re just so easy and yummy and versatile. This one had corn, red bell pepper, green beans (that I cooked with the pasta when it was almost done), and kalamata olives. The dressing was olive oil, red wine vinegar, spicy mustard, salt, pepper and a bit…

Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I almost forgot that I had a spiralizer cause I haven’t used it in so long. I made a really nice thai dressing to put on my zucchini noodles. It had peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger powder, lime juice and sriracha. I added some carrot slices for extra crunch, but also some…

Mexican Chicken and Veggie Bowl

Chicken. Veggies. Avocado. That’s basically it. There’s a little base of shredded romaine lettuce in the bottom of the bowl. On top, there is are three sections: a bean, pepper and corn mixture, some avocado, and some cooked chicken breast. Really basic ingredients that are super healthy and high in protein with the chicken and…

Lettuce Boats with Chickpea Salad

If you want a filling and satisfying meal with none of the guilt, lettuce boats are a perfect way to go.  I made a “meat” filling with some soy meat, chopped water chestnuts and soy, sriracha, honey and a splash of water – cooked all that together. On top of that, I made a little…

Asian Chicken Meatballs, Roasted Veggies and Salad

I haven’t made a full meal like this in a long time. The main protein was these chicken meatballs which turned out really well. The actual meal mixture was just ground chicken, an egg, panko bread crumbs, grated ginger and sriracha. I made meatballs and baked them for about 15 minutes. After that, I brushed…
