Growing up I always loved going to the mall for two reasons: obviously shopping, but also the food court! My favorite were the Asian-fusion spots where you got at styrofoam box filled to the brim with yummy food! I’m not going to lie, I sometimes get cravings but thankfully that has only ever inspired me to create my own veganized version.
If there are two things I think pretty much everyone can get on board with, they are avocado and pesto! Okay, maybe not everyone, but if you are that one percent, please just…go away LOL! Regardless of that statistic, avocado-pesto linguini is one of the yummiest and easiest recipes to make and yes, it can be made 100% vegan!
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)!
I love soups! Now that we are moving into December and the temperature is cooling down even more, soups are the perfect meal to warm you up. One of my favorites has always been butternut squash soup. Its heavier than a broth, its healthy because its literally pureed squash, and its simply super tasty and delicious!
As Thanksgiving weekend comes to a close, I am in desperate need for a crisp salad! After stuffing my face with delicious food and leftovers my body was asking for a break. I still had some random ingredients from other Thanksgiving recipes so I decided to make a fall style salad with pumpkin dressing.
For my second November recipe, I thought I would share with you all, the greatest cranberry sauce recipe you’ll ever try! Then I decided to throw it into a sandwich as a sweet yet savory leftover lunch option because you can put that shit on everything! It’s pretty straight forward so let’s get into it…
