Turmeric Cauliflower Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce

Can steaks grow out of the ground? As a matter of fact, they can. Compared to roasted whole cauliflower, cauliflower steaks are more flavorful, take less time to cook, and look much more festive! They go perfectly with some refreshing and zingy chimichurri sauce. This is another easy one-pan meal, the turmeric sauce I made to use on the cauliflower steaks not only compliments their natural flavors but also gives them a vibrant golden color. These tender, juicy, savory, and aromatic "steaks" can be eaten alone or, I love to serve them on a bed of creamy hummus for some protein and another layer of texture and flavor. And here're more easy one-pan/pot meals you might like: One-Pot 3 Bean Chili , One-Pot Ramen , and One Pan Maple BBQ Tofu . If you make this recipe please let me know how you like it!

One Pot 3 Bean Vegan Chili

It's hard to pick one easiest meal or one single most comforting meal for that matter. However, if you combine both criteria few dishes could meet the challenge, and the winner of which would be, without a doubt to me, a warm, creamy, flavorful, and nourishing bowl of chili. According to Sheldon Cooper on the Big Bang Theory, it's no longer chili if it has beans in it. Well, as much as I helplessly adore Sheldon, I would have to disagree with Mr. know it all here. For someone plant-based like me, chili is beans beans beans, the more the merrier. My favorite combo has been kidney beans, black beans, and lentils. The kidney beans and black beans provide a sturdy base and add lots of chewy texture while lentils make the stew creamier. Not to mention the triple beans action would knock the infamous question - "where do vegans get protein" - out of the park. Being nutritious and comforting is not enough, this recipe is also super easy and quick, all done in one pot, and ev

Tempeh Bacon Salad Bowl

Looking for a quick and delicious meal that can be done in one pan? Here's a salad bowl of your dreams. Loaded with homemade tempeh bacon, maple glazed acorn squash, creamy avocado, massaged kales, figs, and generous drizzles of homemade mustard balsamic dressing. Where has tempeh bacon been this whole time & why did I not try it sooner?! It’s the fastest and easiest vegan bacon recipe ever - all was done in ONE frying pan. And they came out crispy on the edges, meaty in the center, sweet, smoky and savory. I personally liked them even more than tofu bacon! Also I don’t need to tell you the sturdy tempeh is much easier to handle than the delicate tofu, especially when you need to slice it thin. If you like vegan or veggies bowls here are more fun ideas you'd love: White Bean Meatballs Bowl , Baked Plantain Vegan Cuban Bowl , Tofu Katsu and Curry Bowl , and Vegan Korean Bibimbap .  INGREDIENTS: 8 oz tempeh 2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp coconut ami

Oatmeal Fruit & Nut Cake (Vegan Gluten-free Tea Loaf)

How do you take your oats? Cold with fruit and milk? Oatmeal? Baked oats? Well maybe I can tempt you with something even better. Oatmeal loaf cake that's filled with sweet chewy dried fruit and crunchy nuts, topped with a thick layer of strawberry frosting. Now that's the kind of breakfast that can get me out of bed. In celebration of Earth Month - April, I created this recipe using organic, sprouted oats from One Degree Organics . For sure there's no need to blab on about why choosing organic food is good for our health (simply put, no poison used in the process of making the stuff you put in your body, you get it), but let's take a second to consider the what else does choosing organic food benefit. That includes but not limited to our soil, our water, and even the animals living near the farm land, all of which would not be contaminated or poisoned when our food is being produced sustainably and organically. Moving on to the deliciousness part. This oat fruit cake is

White Bean Tempeh Vegan Meatballs

Thinking about having something healthy for dinner? How does meatball sounds. And yes these saucy, juicy, firm, and moist vegan meatballs ARE one of the healthiest meals ever! Packed with plant protein and gluten-free as well. The world is a good place where your food porn are not just pleasing to your tongue but also to your body. Vegan meatballs are robust regular on our dining table and I usually make them with beans, onions, mushrooms, and some type of binding agent like flour, rice flour or oats. And some good serving options are Meatballs with Zucchini Pasta and even on a Meatball Pizza . But for this one I experimented with a new ingredient - tempeh, and the result was banging! The tempeh adds so much more chewiness and makes the meatballs more meaty. And not to mention, more protein! Cook these with your favorite sauce, I recommend something tomato based and get ready to turn your carnivore friends. If you try this recipe please let me know what you think! And don't forget

Best Vegan Burger with Guacamole and Sweet Potato Fries

Your days of lab synthetized fake meat or dry store bought veggie patties are over! These vegan and gluten-free bean burgers call for only four main ingredients and they are firm, moist, flavorful and last but not least, will NOT fall apart while you bite into them! This is my holy grail fail safe recipe for vegan burgers - easy, quick, no fuss, and made with only whole food ingredients. The four main ones are: beans, onions, mushrooms and rolled oats. And exactly because it's such a simple and basic recipe, it's super versatile and adaptable. For the beans, you can choose from black beans, kidney beans or pinto beans, the differences in the final flavors are little but pinto beans are generally more wet than the other two, a touch more flour will easily solve that. For the mushrooms, I would highly recommend shiitake mushrooms, it's the most meaty and adds a nice chewiness to the patties. But other mushrooms like baby bella would work too. And to make these burgers gluten
