Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Hello friends,

Lately, I’ve been all about tacos. Taco Tuesday everyday … tacos for lunch, tacos for dinner, and of course, breakfast tacos. I thought I’d share the basic recipe for the breakfast tacos my partner Cory whipped up for me this ‘morning.’ (Okay, maybe it was almost noon.) Hands down it was my favorite homemade breakfast taco to-date, and they are relatively simple to make!

Enjoy!

Recipe Review: Vegan Wedding Soup

FullSizeRender

So this week I decided to adapt another recipe from the Thug Kitchen cookbook. (Read my review of the Chick Pea and Dumpling Soup here). I’m Italian so of course I’ve had my fair share of wedding soup. However, I don’t think I had tasted it since I stopped eating meat years and years ago. After enjoying this recipe, I can say that I missed that flavor! It’s warm, a little salty, and completely satisfying on chilly evenings.

The soup is basically a mix of cannelloni bean ‘balls,’ orzo, kale, celery, carrots, onion, spices, and vegetable broth. Simple as that! Below you’ll find my adapted version of the recipe, as well as, as my commentary on making this dish. Enjoy!

Vegan Enchilada Lasagna: Combining an Italian Favorite with Mexican Flavors

Hi Friends!

I think I’ve mentioned that I am Italian so of course I LOVE pasta. During the holidays, my family eats lasagna, not just any ‘traditional’ holiday dish. My boyfriend and I also have a real hankering for Mexican flavors. When we visited LA this past year, I don’t think a day went by when one of us didn’t get something from a taco truck.

So how do you combine the best of both worlds? Easy. Make an enchilada lasagna. Many vegetarian recipes for this concept already exist online (but most call this a casserole); however, it’s a little harder to find a vegan version that lives up to your expectations – and that of your omnivore friends.

That’s why I’ve decided to share my tried and true version of this dish. The best part – it’s even better as leftovers or a pre-made dish made at the beginning of the week!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, as much as I enjoy eating it! Oh, and please feel free to share widely, just give me some credit or a link back. Thanks!

Enjoy!
