Vegan Spring Bowl

Another week past, and another blizzard. This winter is just relentless. Between that and the growing little babe in my belly, the lack of motivation to do much of anything is getting more and more real. I hope you’re better than me, but it’s really getting time for some melting and warmer weather. Who’s with …

Italian Garlic Parmesan Pasta

So so so sick of the snow and storms here. We’ve been nailed so many times this winter, and not with mild storms, but full on blizzards. I think there have been already 3 storm days in the last two weeks due to extreme cold and winter weather. Can it be spring yet? All day …

Cherry Banana Smoothie

Being pregnant has pros, including the ability to eat more. My breakfast has become THE most important meal of the day. I can’t go more than 20-30 minutes without eating in the morning now without getting sick to my stomach. When baby wants food, she wins. One of my go-to breakfasts to pack in some …

Chana Palak

Every time I go to the Indian buffet there is a version of palak or saag which are a spinach or other leafy green dish. They usually contain something else including chickpeas or paneer, which is a blocked cheese. It’s my father-in-law’s favorite dish and something I always steer clear of. That being said, I …

There are those nights where you get home from work and want dinner quick. It’s not often we haven’t prepared ahead of time, but this was one of those instances. Luckily we’re prepared for these situations – most recently we purchased a giant bag of stir fry frozen vegetables from Costco. I’d normally cut my …

Breakfast Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Get bored of the same old things for breakfast? Scrambled eggs, peanut butter toast, routine smoothies, breakfast sandwiches, ya da ya da ya da. Well this is one of those things you can make a supply of and change it up everyday. Mashed sweet potatoes for breakfast sounded really strange to me when I first …

Chana Balti

Our favorite Indian restaurant is Punjabi and they have a specialty dish called Balti. It took us quite awhile to give it a try, but it became quickly our favorite. Being we are vegetarian, there were a couple of options for us, including Chana Balti and Mushroom. From there they had options of adding mixed …

Garlic Roasted Broccoli

My husband loves broccoli. When they say kids hate broccoli, well this guy is the opposite. Sometimes I use this as an addition to other main courses, and he eats half the tray before I get to the point of needing to add it. I’ve learned I need to make extra if he’s home, since …

Indian Spiced Tofu and Green Beans Curry

Since the first time trying my first Indian dish, which of course was Chicken Tikka Masala, I’ve branched into other dishes, including sabzi (Indian vegetable based dishes), bean, chickpea, and (lentil) based dishes. Since we’ve been cutting meat out of our diets, we’ve been experimenting with a lot more of these sabzi dishes to give …
