Vegan Fish & Chips With Cilantro-Lime Aioli

Something I had not experimented much with is veganizing fish-based meals. It hasn’t been an issue because I didn’t think I really enjoyed seafood that much anyway. One visit to a farmer’s market in South Florida and I realized I was wrong. The ceviche stands, shrimp skewers and fish and chip tents had me salivating and got me thinking. How can I make this vegan? This question is really more of a challenge and in my experience, it makes herbivores super excited! By the way, I did NOT give in to my craving at the farmer’s market; instead, I got an acai bowl (just in case you were wondering)!

Vegan Buffalo Chick’n Dip

Who’s excited for the Super Bowl?! To be honest, I don’t really care for football but I always enjoyed the social aspect of this event, the commercials, the half-time show, and of course the food. In my experience I’ve noticed that anything with buffalo sauce and chicken is pretty much a staple item to have on Super Bowl Sunday. Buffalo chicken wings, buffalo chicken wraps, buffalo chicken hoagies, buffalo chicken dip, etc. Some ooey, gooey buffalo chicken dip sounded amazing so I decided to create my own vegan version to satisfy my craving.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

First of all, I’d like to say happy holidays to everyone! At this point, you’ve either gotten all your gifts weeks ago (like a responsible, smart adult lol) or you’re scrambling to get some last minute shopping done (like me). As a result, traffic becomes more of a hassle, people can become more unbearable, and you become Ebenezer Scrooge! Before you become this negatively-spirited Christmas icon, remember all the wonderful and magical things about the holidays…primarily all the yummy food and sweets!

Vegan Spinach Quiche

For Thanksgiving, I posted some bomb side dishes made vegan, but now it’s time to start thinking about the end-of-the-year holidays, gatherings and what you can possibly bring to the table…literally. I wouldn’t say quiche is necessarily a traditional holiday food item but it definitely is a great option to keep in mind. It’s easy to make, conveniently packaged (no dish needed), and quite tasty in a savory and creamy kind of way. My favorite quiche, even before I gave up meat was always a simple spinach quiche. Nowadays my version is not only vegetarian but also vegan!

100% Vegan Lasagne

What comes to mind when you think of lasagne? My mind immediately thinks, “meaty and cheesy.” Back in the day, that thought made me excited and happy but when I first changed my diet the same thought made me sad and frustrated. I thought I would never be able to enjoy that perfectly layered combination again. Then I realized I was being mellow-dramatic and not thinking outside the box. I quickly slapped myself silly and decided to take action and attempt to make a vegan lasagne.
