Super Easy Vegan Nachos

My husband is a lover of Mexican food.  Vegan nachos are his thing.  In fact, when we go to our favorite vegan restaurant here in Dallas, he always orders the big nacho plate.  He created these vegan nachos with that in mind.  I promise these vegan nachos will not disappoint.  They are also very easy!  We used our homemade vegan cheese sauce that is cashew based and totally awesome!

Spaghetti Squash with Pesto Sauce

I have been trying to experiment with grain free pastas lately.  I first made my Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto.  That was a huge hit, so I thought I would try spaghetti squash next.  That is how this Spaghetti Squash with Pesto Sauce was born.  Now this pesto sauce is different.  It is made with hemp oil. If you haven’t had hemp oil, you should give it a try!  Not only is it healthy, it has a very nice nutty taste!

Easy Quinoa Stir Fry (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Easy Quinoa Stir Fry.  Sometimes when money is tight, I have to cook from the ingredients I already have in my kitchen.  I often make easy stir fry recipes.  Many of those creations are not blog worthy though.  However, I do get a winner once and awhile.

This quinoa stir fry recipe was one of them.  I always have quinoa in my pantry.  I love cooking with quinoa because it’s not only a plant based complete source of protein, but it’s also gluten free.

Baked Falafel Burgers

For those of you that don’t know, my husband is Turkish.  We eat a lot of Turkish inspired meals at our house.  Falafel is just one of those.  So I made a baked falafel burger.   Since traditional falafels are fried, I wanted to make them healthier by doing a baked falafel burger.  These baked falafel burgers came out great!
