Recipe & Review: Vegan Banana Ricotta Toast

Some of you may have seen an accidental post with the draft version of this content. Obviously, my post was published accidentally, very prematurely. Please check out my actual, full post below. Your tastebuds will thank you.  =)

Hello everyone,

Kite Hill RicottaAvocado toast has become… Let’s just say “a thing.” Admittedly, I love a good avocado toast as much as the next millennial, but recently I had a craving for a sweet, slightly savory breakfast toast. I had just picked up some Kite Hill Ricotta so I thought—why not make a Vegan Banana Ricotta Toast?! I’m so glad I did. It was simple, ascetically pleasing, and delicious!

I love all things banana + peanut butter flavored, but I was never one for savory/ sweet breakfast combos. This recipe has swayed me. Kite Hill’s ricotta is slightly sweet and silky and can be used to replace traditional ricotta in any recipe. I’ve previously used this ‘ricotta’ for stuffed shells, and it works fantastic! Check out my tried and true recipe sure to please the dairy-free non-believers! (Plus, you can save $1.00 on the Kite Hill product of your choice!) Next on my list is to use this as a substitute for mascarpone!

What follows is my ‘all you need to know’ recipe for a delicious Vegan banana Ricotta Toast! I hope you enjoy it.

Cheers & happy eating!

Vegan Enchilada Lasagna Redux

Hello there,

I know we’ve all been there. A certain is in aroma in the air, and all of a sudden, in comes the grand idea to make a hearty Mexican meal. After a few minutes of mental conversation,  you decide you really want enchiladas, but you just don’t have the patience. Well, I’ve got the recipe for you!

Enchilada lasagna has all of the flavor and goodness of regular enchiladas but only 10% the hassle. I absolutely love this recipe because it’s simple. You sauté a few ingredients, you create layers, and you pop it in the oven. Simple! So simple in fact, it’s become one of my go to meals when I’m having company over. I’ve cooked this vegan meal for so many omnivores who are down right shocked that it is completely satisfying without any animal products.

Still not convinced? It tastes just as amazing, if not even better, as leftovers! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Cheers & happy eating!

Hello friends,

It seems like almost every weekend I feel the intense need to bake cookies or cupcakes, even when I probably shouldn’t. This was one of those weekends. Am I alone? I suspect not. What’s better on a snowy, cold day than a warm, fresh-baked treat? Nothing. Continue reading

Recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash with Brown Rice, Beans, and Vegetables

Hello friends,

Who doesn’t love fall?

IMG_0214

It’s my favorite time of year. I love the colors, the weather, and the food! Once there is a crisp chill in the air, I tend to make at least one dish per week that utilizes a type of squash. But hey, I’m still the first to admit that all squash varieties have their ups and downs. I don’t think anyone enjoys hacking one open, but if you point in the effort, it’s so, so worth it! Think about a warm, sweet, roasted butternut squash, or how about spaghetti squash with homemade pesto sauce? Yum.  Continue reading “Recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash with Brown Rice, Beans, and Vegetables”
