Roasted Beet, Avocado and Granny Smith Apples Tower

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
I agree that this definitely needs some sort of dressing, but did enjoy the freshness of the apple against the creaminess of the avocado and earthiness of the beet. Being vegan, I used a vegan aged raw cashew cheese which made this dish a fully raw vegan dish, which was nice. I make a sugar free fat free maple mustard vinaigrette that is to die for that was really nice atop this stack as well. My husband also had trouble deciding how to dig into this, as the previous reviewer mentioned. He picked it up and bit (LOL). I cut into it with a very sharp knife and fork, but fully expected it to collapse like Jenga (it did). But it still tasted nice.

Doggie Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Dogs loved these, and just used a "flax egg" instead of egg to make these vegan :)

Skillet Mac and Cheese & Kielbasa

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I made a couple tweaks too. In addition to using vegan cheese and making a roux and creating the cheese sauce that way, I subbed in vegan kielbasa (which I pre cooked in sauerkraut) and skipped the breadcrumbs. I love how versatile this recipe was, and it gave me so many ideas. Different cheeses, different proteins, added spices, etc. I never know what to do with kielbasa besides just grilling or cooking in sauerkraut. I never would've thought to put it in mac and cheese or to even serve it WITH mac and cheese. It's a nice jumping off point, and very kid friendly.

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Quick and simple and very easy to customize with your own spices, cheeses, and proteins. As a vegan, it's nice to be able to easily sub in vegan sausage or even crumbled tofu. YUM.

Potatoes Madras

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
Did this oil free. It was light but I wished I'd added more spice.

Easy Coconut Rice and Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
Quick and easy. I used this as a side with some vegan jamaican patties and callaloo and a rundown that I had all prepared from scratch so such a nice and easy side was great.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
We leave out the olive oil to make a fat free beans and rice and use brown rice rather than white. Quick and easy alternative to boiling dried beans or using a slow cooker.

Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
I chose to puree the soup for a smooth consistency and we loved it. I also added a bit of spice with some chipotles in adobo.

Cheesy Chicken and Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
We loved this recipe. I was short on time and this came together with minimal effort and a big payoff. sBeing vegan, I substituted Beyond Meat strips in place of chicken and for the cheese, used 1/4 cup nutritional yeast and just shy of 1/4 cup of vegan cheddar. I also used about a half can of fire roasted crushed tomatoes in place of fresh because I didn't have any fresh.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
Being vegan, this was a great recipe to use as a jumping off point. I used vegan heavy cream (mimicreme) and coconut milk. I used half monkfruit sweetener and half stevia because we don't do white sugar. Also added some vanilla bean.

Garlic Chicken and Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
This was so quick and easy. We're vegan, so I used Beyond Meat in place of the chicken, and vegan parmesan. This came together in a snap and is healthy and tastes good. Leftovers taste great cold after sitting in the fridge overnight.

French Onion Soup from Birds Eye®

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
This was quick but needed a bit more than what is written to kick it up. We're vegan so I used vegan "beef" broth and added some Braggs Liquid Aminos and soy sauce, plus some garlic. I also used vegan swiss on top of my whole wheat baguette slice. Nice for a quick lunch but add your own spin.

HERDEZ® Hot Chipotle Mocha

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
Not really a fan of spicy chocolate but this came together very quickly and is much much cheaper than buying a mocha from a chain. The only change I made was using non dairy milk in place of the creamer, being that we're vegan, and making sure to use vegan friendly chocolate chips.

Grilled Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Left out the sour cream, but loved the flavor that grilling the avocado gives to the guacamole. Next time I'm grilling the tomatoes and the jalapenos too.

Tickety-Tock BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
It was simple and a quick way to dress up regular old bottled bbq sauce. Easy to add your own spin by adding in different types of vinegar or mustard, using a different bbq sauce base, etc.

Light Delight Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Made mine even lighter by making a simple syrup out of stevia and water rather than sugar. Light and crisp!

Best Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Used Johsonville Sausage and italian diced tomatoes in this and it was a nice change. Quick and easy but nothing super duper special. Veganizable with vegan sausage and vegan cheese and cream of mushroom soup :)

Sausage Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
I added a little bit of cheese (vegan parm and vegan cream cheese) just for interest. Simple to customize with your own spices, too. I used the biggest grape tomatoes I could find so they could be cute little apps. As a vegan it's nice to be able to sub in vegan proteins and cheeses and have a great result when recipes are as simple and straighforward as this one.

Garlic and Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Couldn't be more simple and easy to customize. We're vegan so when not preparing for meat eaters to test out - easy to substitute vegan cheeses and vegan sausage products too!

Easy Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
I like to flavor my TVP, we also like to add various pepper powders and cilantro of course. I also use chili tomatoes, not stewed and usually add much more cumin and chili powder to taste and throw in some hot sauce.
