Tex-Mex Black Beans

In my life, I have come across many phenomenal recipes for black beans, having grown up in Southern California and now living in Texas.  This one I would say is a good contender.  It has the flavor profile you’d expect, and it’s practically fool-proof in its simplicity.  Do y’all prepare your beans differently?  Let me… Continue reading Tex-Mex Black Beans

Beet Burgers

Y’all know I will add an unnecessary ingredient to make my food look dazzling.  This is where the beet comes in.  It doesn’t add any taste except for a subtle, earthy tone underneath the other flavors, but under all the toppings it’s basically unnoticeable.  This recipe uses ingredients that were in my fridge at the… Continue reading Beet Burgers

Purple Sweet Potato Burgers

These patties are gorgeous.  The deep purple color from the sweet potatoes will impress any audience and entice people to try the dish.  They are also as delicious as they are beautiful, in my opinion.  Try them and let me know what you think! Note: this recipe uses a food processor.  If one is not… Continue reading Purple Sweet Potato Burgers

Leftover Curry Poutine

I know that leftovers aren’t the most glamorous foods to eat, especially if you eat the same meal over and over.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get creative in the kitchen!  I was all out of brown rice, and I needed to cook some potatoes before they went bad, so then the leftover curry… Continue reading Leftover Curry Poutine

Red Lentil Curry

This recipe is one of my favorite go-to dishes that is simple and quick to make.  Inspiration for this recipe came from High Carb Hannah’s Instant Pot recipe book.  If you do not have an Instant Pot, this recipe can easily be made on the stove.  Cooking times will be different, though.   Ingredients Curry… Continue reading Red Lentil Curry

The Perfect Patty

Even though I pride myself on being super-duper healthy all the time, I am still an American brought up on burgers and baseball.  Though baseball never stuck for me, I still do absolutely love burgers with all of the fixings: lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard, etc.  Luckily as a vegan, I can take my burgers… Continue reading The Perfect Patty
