Creamy Vegan Butternut Squash Macaroni and “Cheese”


Comfort food = macaroni and cheese. Yes. You can’t deny it. And neither can I. But there’s nothing comfortable what about dairy does to my insides. Oversharing? I wanted something fairly simple for dinner (and gluten-free as well) after our bike ride this afternoon. Oh, and how about that Tampa Bay Lightning? I donned my… Continue reading Creamy Vegan Butternut Squash Macaroni and “Cheese”

Cashew Alfredo Sauce – Vegan and Dairy-Free


You need this recipe in your life. It’s a staple, just like sugar cookies, banana bread or a good pie crust recipe (sweet tooth, hello?!); everyone should know how to do this if you are going to follow a plant-based, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian or just healthier diet. As you may know, I really can’t digest… Continue reading Cashew Alfredo Sauce – Vegan and Dairy-Free

Cajun Grilled Tofu and Mushroom Pasta


A creamy Cajun alfredo sauce that’s delicious and vegan? Can it be possible?? This is probably the BEST creamy-style pasta sauce I’ve ever made. Another great thing about this recipe is, again, how the marinade for the tofu can be used in multiple ways after using it as a marinade – something you normally can’t… Continue reading Cajun Grilled Tofu and Mushroom Pasta

Cauliflower Couscous and Lemon Dill Sauce


  Love couscous, but can’t have the gluten? Couscous is actually a pasta that looks like tiny little grains. For those of you who choose not to eat gluten or cannot consume it, using grated cauliflower is a great alternative. I highly recommend to grate the cauliflower; trying to chop it will take forever and… Continue reading Cauliflower Couscous and Lemon Dill Sauce
