Vegan Tofu Scramble

tofu-scrambleI had this tofu scramble planned for breakfast this weekend, but we ended up not needing breakfast. Eric had the brilliant idea to make the scramble into breakfast burritos and save them for weekday breakfasts! This was an amazing idea. We are usually so slow to get out of bed in the morning. We try to get every last second of sleep we can and generally end up only taking 15 minutes from getting out of bed to walking out the door. Already prepared breakfasts are really our go to. 80% of the time we eat overnight oats because they are just so darn easy. I see a change in our horizon with these breakfast burritos!

Vegan Enchiladas

Vegan Enchiladas
We’ve been on a Mexican food kick lately and I think these vegan enchiladas are my favorite so far. I don’t really like the vegan cheeses that you can buy from the grocery store so I decided to stuff these with with a potato filling and a tofu filling. Let me say that these enchiladas really hit the spot.

Vegan Pot Pie

IMG_0388 (1)Happy Pi Day! This year I had a hard time deciding between a sweet pie and a savory pie. Ugh those decisions are always so tough :-p Originally I was going to do a savory pie for dinner and a sweet pie for dessert. I could bring the dessert pie into lab for pi day, but then I realized most of my group members would be at the ACS conference in San Diego so I settled on just one savory pie instead. Pot Pie!

Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

Red Pepper PastaAbout 12 years years ago we had a vegan visitor come stay at our house and my mom and I scoured the internet looking for a nice meal to make her. We finally settled on a roasted red pepper pasta and it turned out so great I can still remember the taste. Since then I’ve searched and searched for the recipe but have not been able to find it. This recipe is my recreation of that awesome roasted red pepper pasta. We’ve made it a couple times and each time I realize something else that’s great about this dish. One thing is that it makes quite a bit of roasted red pepper sauce. I usually use half for the meal the night I make it and then vacuum seal and freeze the other half. This is great to have in the freezer so that when we get home super late and no one wants to cook we just heat up the sauce in a pan, cook a pot of pasta and have a homemade meal.

Another great thing about this recipe is how versatile this is. You can do so much with a bowl of pasta. We’ve topped it with roasted cauliflower once and tofu another time. You can top it with any protein (the cashew sauce already contains some protein) or mix it with some veggies.  Continue reading

Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells – Vegan

Stuffed shellsFor Thanksgiving this year my family flew out to Los Angeles, we rented an RV and drove up the coast of California to San Francisco. There were a few people with dietary restrictions so I made these butternut squash stuffed shells as a backup.  Eric and I whipped these up a few weeks ago and loved them and they were a great thing to have in the fridge to pop in the microwave.
