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!

Recipe: Vegan Zucchini Roll Ups

Hello everyone,

If you know me, you know that I love pasta, but sometimes I want something a little lighter with drastically less carbs. Spiralized carrot or zucchini is certainly on trend, but for whatever reason I simply want my noodles to taste like noodles. I can’t help it! Not to worry – there are many other healthy pasta alternatives, and my new favorite is a hearty helping of vegan zucchini roll ups.

This recipe includes all the flavor you seek in an Italian dinner, but no heavy pasta. You simply use finely sliced zucchini, sort of like a lasagna strip. The dish also includes my new favorite nut cheese which uses a mixture of pepitas, tofu, and Daiya mozzerella. It’s so, so good, and it’s much better for you than traditional ricotta cheese. Aside from the rich flavor, the best part of this recipe is that it has a quick cook time, and the “rolling” is actually quite fun.

I think this would be the perfect dish to make with your loved ones help! Please give it a try and let me know what you think!

Cheers and happy cooking!

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!

Sunday Savings: Kite Hill, Newman’s Own, Carr’s Crackers and more!

Hello everyone,

I’ve been busy preparing my vegetable seedlings for summer. I’m so excited to garden this year—albeit slightly intimidated by the seemingly never-ending steps in the process. My basement officially looks like I’m a doomsdayTasty Bite Channa Masala, Set of 6 by World Market prepper, complete with 3 hanging shop lights and over 100 plants. I’m hoping that even in my first year I’ll ‘break even’ by producing my own vegetables, but I’ll admit it’s not the cheapest hobby to start.

I took a break from separating my seedlings to round up the freshest savings for the week. There are many new rebates and coupons right now, including one for $1.00 off Kite Hill vegan cheese! If you haven’t tried Kitehill, I urge you to pick some up on your next grocery run! The cheese has a light, rich texture that doesn’t disappoint!

Additionally, I know I’m probably late in the game, but I recently started going to Aldi’s for limited canned goods and produce. This week they even had three packs of tri-color peppers for $1.89. That’s way better than other grocery stores, including Trader Joes. I’m also pleasantly surprised by the quality. They were fresh and lasted over a week! Check out all the latest coupons and deals below!

Happy shopping & eating!
