Cheesy Broccoli Soup

It’s still technically winter, and it’s been pretty chilly in the mornings here in Arizona, so it’s still time for soup. But I always love a good soup. Especially something cheesy (vegan cheesy, of course). Plus, vegetables are always better when they’re covered in a vegan cheese. And this one is actually healthy for us! No cholesterol in sight. So feel free to get a huge bowl of this comforting, indulgent soup. And even seconds.

The Best Mac and Cheese

Yeah. The best mac and cheese? That’s a big claim. We’ve made mac and cheese on the blog before, but we’ve heard over and over again that this recipe below is THE BEST, so we believe it. Plus, we love it so much ourselves, so we’re going with it. And there will be some leftover cheese to make other kinds of cheesy goodness. Stay tuned this week for a good use for it!

Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

You guys! Since going gluten-free, my husband and I rarely eat bread. Not gonna lie–I’m lazy, so I don’t make my own. I have started eating Ezekiel bread every so often (okay, sometimes every day when I make avocado toast), but it’s not the same as the horrible-for-you white bread I ate while growing up. 🙂 And, while this isn’t sandwich bread, it’s a seriously delicious, garlicky, gooey-bread breadstick. OMGYUMMM.

Savory, soft, and fluffy gluten-free/vegan breadsticks! Garlicky and delicious for all eaters! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #garlic #breadsticks

Broccoli Mac and Cheese

Y’all… If you’re not following The Detoxinista, you’re missing out. She doesn’t always post vegan recipes, but they’re generally easy to convert with a few substitutions. However, this is one vegan recipe that will leave you wondering why you ever made it with dairy in the first place. Yum!

Creamy Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Kale Soup

This recipe is exceptional on a cold day, but I’ll be honest. I could eat it all the time. Haha! It’s a crowd pleaser, and it’s pretty simple! There are a few steps, but nothing’s too complicated. You can have it on the table fast, and you can save some for leftovers for the next day. You could even batch-cook this. It’s a great recipe, and I hope you try it! 🙂

Broccoli Potato Soup

Hey all! It’s been a long time. I’d apologize, but I have had a lot on my plate. If you check out the last post, you’ll see what I’ve been working through. Grief, anxiety, panic, etc. Plus a lot of editing work, which is amazing. BUT it is Meatless Monday today, and Husband tried another one of the fabulous recipes on Plates for Plants! Seriously, y’all. If you haven’t checked out that awesome blog, you’re missing out!! Husband made it a little differently for me because I don’t do spicy at all. But it’s all dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, simple, and mega delicious. Just YUM! Tastes cheesy and it’s so satisfying. Mmmm!
