Veggie Lentil Soup

Man oh man, this certainly tasted delicious but I’d like to talk about the absolute TRAIN WRECK that was me trying to make this soup. I was feeling very confident in my culinary know-how the other evening and I had a bunch of veg and stuff that need to be eaten so I said to…

Lemon Asparagus Risotto

It can’t get any more summer time than this! The lightest most refreshing risotto you’ve ever had complete with a cacophony of summer veg. This one had me going back in for seconds and thirds – it’s that good! Risotto in my experience is made a billion times easier through the use of an Instant…

Grandma’s Marinated Tomatoes

As a bonus mini-recipe this week, I decided to make my late grandma’s marinated tomatoes. This is one of those dishes that was just always at family events. Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, anything. My grandma would always be there, and always with a casserole dish full of these tomatoes. My dad taught me how to make…

Teriyaki Noodles

Did you guys really think I could go another week without throwing more Asian food up? These noodles were ridiculously delicious and they’re super easy to make. The best way to make these fun is by adding your own veggie varieties! The quality of this recipe depends on the quality of the teriyaki sauce, so…

Kale Waldorf Salad

We’re going with a super yummy, super filling salad today! Regular salads don’t always fill me up like I want them to, so a good way to combat this is by adding some carbs. Excited to share…also KALE!!!! I used lentils because I have an obscene amount of lentils in my pantry. Any carb will…

Orzo Pasta Salad

Another pasta salad! Keep it simple with the limited ingredients available to you! This one is definitely best eaten fresh. As a kid I would remember going to parties with my parents and one of my favorite things to eat was this orzo pasta salad that someone always brought. This is my attempt at recreating…

Tofu Lettuce Cups

Tacos, but ~asian~. I love the lettuce cups from P.F. Chang’s more than anything so I wanted to try and make some myself cause I was really craving them this week. What better filling than tofu and shrooms? These are so yummy and actually super easy to keep in the fridge and assemble really fast….

Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos

I love tacos. I mean, I LOVE them. To me, tacos without chicken or beef or pork didn’t sound like a fun time UNTIL I tried it myself. I’m obsessed. You know I love me a roasted veggie and cauliflower is subtle enough to not dominate the other taco-y flavors I was going for. I…

Stuffed Peppers

Hey gang. This week I made stuffed peppers for lunch and they’re so good. I felt like this is a good one to share because they’re super easy to make/prep for the week and I haven’t done a Mexican style meal yet. I saved buckets of time using canned black beans and instant spanish rice….

Mumbai Burrito

So this wrap is heckin’ delicious, friends. I wanted to make something not only outside my culinary comfort zone, but also different from food I would normally eat, and let me tell you it was so worth it. I’ve always liked Indian food because it’s full of spices and flavor, but making homemade Indian food…
