Easy Roasted Cauliflower

This is better than French fries. Really. There is no magic to this recipe – one I almost hesitate to call a recipe, it’s so easy. And I promise you, a vegetable never tasted so good! I can almost guarantee it’ll be one of your favorite cauliflower dishes. If you’re not fond of curry powder, experiment with different spices, try a squeeze of lemon juice, or add fresh herbs. It will all be good.

Easy Roasted Chickpeas

This is a wicked easy appetizer or snack, and they’re packed with protein and flavor. I make a big batch (double or triple this recipe) and break in into single servings, ready to grab and go in a snap.

Vegan Macaroni Salad

It’s a funny thing, but I never liked macaroni salad when I was a child – or anything else that was mayonnaise-based. I thought it was pretty disgusting. I only liked mayonnaise on tomato sandwiches. I didn’t even like potato salad, back then. Strangely enough, I really like vegan mayo. Vegenaise and Just Mayo are my favorites. They are so much better than I remember “regular” mayo being, and now I LOVE salads like this one. It’s so easy to prepare, and it’s a big hit at potlucks and family dinners – even with non-vegans. In fact, I often sneak it onto the table when no one is paying attention, and folks don’t even realize it’s vegan.

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Isn’t everything better with ranch dressing? I really like it on sandwiches or as a dip for raw veggies. And I will admit that I like to dip my pizza crusts in it. The strange thing? I rarely use it as an actual dressing on salads!

Vegan Buffalo Sauce

The first time I made this, it was for buffalo tofu bites. I couldn’t get enough of it! I admit, I put it on everything. (I might have been known to eat it with a spoon, lol.) I usually make a double or triple batch and freeze some for later use – because I ALWAYS have buffalo sauce on hand! It’s addictive. Serious yum.

Easy One Pot Pasta

If I’d known making pasta could be this easy – without all the draining/straining mess – I’d have been making pasta this way for years. I don’t know if I’ll make it the “old way” again…this is easy, quick, and delish! And it makes a TON of food.

Nutritional Yeast Cheesy Sauce

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that is chock full of protein and vitamins, especially B-complex vitamins. The flavor is often described as nutty or cheesy…I think it’s fantastic! I enjoy this sauce more than I ever enjoyed a cow’s milk cheese sauce. And bonus: it’s ready in less than 10 minutes!
