Recipe: "Butter" Tofu Cauliflower (Vegan - coconut milk)

I've made this a few times now and I FINALLY wrote down the proportions!

This is a super warm and comforting Indian-inspired dish based on Butter Chicken, but it's 100% vegan!


Seasoned Tofu & Cauliflower

  • 3/4 block Firm Tofu
  • 1/2 head Cauliflower
  • 3/4 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Curry Powder

I have mixing bowls with lids so I put all these ingredients into the bowl, put the lid on and shake. Let sit while you...

Recipe: Perfect Instant Pot Black Beans with Quinoa or Rice, Kale, and Lime-Cashew Cream

I've made two variations of this now and love both of them.

This is a super simple and oh so stereotypically vegan meal. I was laughing as I described it to someone, but it's so yummy!


Perfect Instant Pot Black Beans

(adapted from Well Planted)
1 C Dried Black Beans - rinsed
1 1/4 C Water
1 tsp Vegetable Bouillon
Stick of Kombu

Recipe: Southwest Quinoa and Black Bean Stew (Instant Pot)

I don't know what I was going for when I created this, but somehow it came together!

I was thinking about a vegetable soup, then I was thinking a minestrone which led to some black beans...anyway, it turned into some type of southwest inspired soup/stew thing and I'm not mad about it!


Instant Pot Black Beans

1 C Dried Black Beans (no need to soak)
1 3/4 C Vegetable Broth (I've been using this one recently)
1 piece of Kombu (this helps us...

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: Rainbow Lemon Tahini Protein Salad

A new random creation for the lunch rotation!

My niece is attending her second year of university and has access to a kitchen this year. We were talking about my one-pot wonder meals and I remembered that white rice/quinoa cook in the same time as black (aka Beluga) lentils. That formed the base of this dish. Then it was time for a new dressing...

...I found a lemon tahini dressing from Yummy Mummy Kitchen that looked like the flavours I...
