Candied Sweet Potato Discs and Apple Slices

June is national fruits and veggies month and if you’re looking for a sweet treat with fruits and veggies, this is definitely the one for you. I ate an entire pan of this in two days and I’m not ashamed to say it. This is another recipe out of the Vegan Soul Kitchen book, that…

Apple Nachos

This is the best snack EVER! If you haven’t tried the combination of apples, peanut butter, and chocolate, you don’t know what you’re missing. I started eating this snack a few years ago when my church did a Daniel Fast. I saw this recipe on a list of options for the fast, decided to try…

Roasted Plantains with Roasted Garlic-Lime Dipping Sauce

I absolutely love plantains and this version is super tasty and easy to make. According to Raul Musibay, Cuban cookbook author and cofounder of icuban.com, tostones (twice-fried plantains) can be linked directly to the African continent: “The tradition of the tostone comes from African slaves. In the Congo, the people prepare plantains in the exact same…

Cajun-Creole-Spiced Tempeh Pieces with Creamy Grits

Here is my next installment in the Vegan Soul Kitchen series. Author Bryant Terry offers his vegan rendition of a classic shrimp and grits. I was never a big fan of tempeh but I really enjoyed it in this recipe. And if you like spicy cajun food, this is definitely a great dish to try….

Tofu Quiche

Vegan Collard Greens with Cranberry Redux

Don’t let the vegan label fool you. I am very much a southern girl and the thought of making collard greens without the slow cooking of a ham-hock made me shiver. However, I decided to give it a try after picking up the book Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry. These collard greens are the…

BBQ Cauliflower Wings

This has easily become one of my favorite vegan recipes. Dredging the cauliflower in the flour creates the crispy breading that you’re used to with wings and baking the cauliflower gives that “fall off the bone” texture of a real wing. You can make these wing your own by using your favorite kind of BBQ…

Easy Vegan Lunch: Lentils and Crackers

This is one of my favorite dishes. Compared to other types of dried beans, lentils are relatively quick and easy to prepare. They come in a variety of colors which are all high in nutritional value and available throughout the year. One great thing about lentils is that they easily absorb a variety of wonderful flavors, so you can…

Tofu Popcorn Chicken Bites

This is one of the first vegan dishes I tried and my first attempt at using tofu and I love it!  This recipe is very versatile. You can use the tofu as crumbles and place in a salad, lettuce wrap, or sandwich. You can make “chicken” strips or nuggets. You can also fry it up in…
