Recipe: Vegan and Gluten-Free Mac & Cheese

A while ago I had tried making a vegan mac & cheese with a primarily cashew-based recipe. It was good, but it was dense! It was so heavy and I had a hard time eating more than a small amount.

I gave up for a while, then recently came across this recipe.

I've used it as a base, but modified a bit (as I tend to do).


1 C Carrot (peeled)
1 C Potatoes (peeled)
1/3 C Onion
1 C Water

 2(ish) C Macaroni Noodles (I use Go Go Quinoa)

1/4 C...

Recipe: Vegan Cajun Tempeh Caeser Salad

This one has a lot of components, but each is really simple. The dressing was definitely some trial and error so I'll do my best to provide the best guide I can, but please taste-test and adjust as you need!

Make a cup of Quinoa - I added some lemon juice to the water, just because.

Cashew Parmesan

I used Minimalist Baker's Vegan Parm recipe for this one.

3/4 C Cashews
3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 tsp Salt

Pulse in...

Recipe: Spaghetti Sauce & Squash

Since I had 1/2 of a jar of crushed tomatoes left from making the stuffed peppers, I decided this was also a good week to make spaghetti squash. I usually just add ingredients to boost a jar of spaghetti sauce (or do a roasted tomato one), but I took the chance on a spaghetti sauce with the crushed tomatoes.

This is big for me because I actually really don't like tomatoes when they resemble/taste like a tomato. I'm even known for picking...

Recipe: Stuffed Peppers & Spanish Rice

I finally did it! I finally made stuffed peppers! And I totally miss-judged the rice/pepper ratio, but I ended up with lots of yummy Spanish Rice left over.

As always, I didn't follow a recipe (and I'm writing this post a little late) so I'll do my best to remember the recipe, but please play with the ingredients and spice level on your own :)


Rice
1 C Rice - cook as directed


Cooked Filling
1/2 Red Onion
