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.

No-Oil French Fries

Do you like french fries?

Okay, that was pretty much a rhetorical question. I’ve met very few people who don’t eat them or like them, so I’m assuming you enjoy french fries. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here. So let’s make some incredible oil-free french fries for a healthier twist on this fast food classic.

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!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Today’s recipe was a hit at the vegan BBQ we went to yesterday. We ate carrot hot dogs, lentil burgers, corn, quinoa salad, hummus, grilled potatoes/mushrooms/sweet potatoes/asparagus, brownies, pie, cookies, and more. But this baked potato salad is always a winner, even with nonvegans. They can’t believe it’s vegan, and that’s a cool thing. It’s so good, so enjoy 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!!┬áHusband 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!

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Today’s recipe is basically portobello mushrooms stuffed with mashed potatoes and corn and covered with vegan cheese. I mean, how can you go wrong with those things? They’re all awesome, and when they’re put together, they’re even better! This one came from Husband’s head one day, and I’m so glad it did. It’s comforting and delicious. Yum. Check it out!
