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!

Settlers of Catan Vegan Nachos!

Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago my Facebook feed became flooded with links to a Nerdist article about Settlers of Catan Nachos. Two of my favorite things in one! Can I get the longest road of Settlers nachos? I’m not sure how that would work, but I’ll try! I’m determined!

Obviously, as soon as I saw the article, I knew I had to have a game night and make these nachos. It was a no brainer. And really, who doesn’t love a good nacho bar? It’s cheap, it’s relatively easy, and your guests can customize their plate to their own liking.

These Settlers of Catan nachos are made possible by purchasing small hexagonal weigh boats to house the ingredients. Then you simply divvy up your nacho ingredients and voila! You have a beautifully colorful, edible game day snack! Continue reading “Settlers of Catan Vegan Nachos!”

Recipe: Broccoli (Vegan) Cheddar Potato Skins

Hello everyone,FullSizeRender_8

How’d you spend your weekend? Eating junk food, watching the game, or at least, watching Lady Gaga and Beyonce? I actually love football, but I wasn’t terribly invested in either team. I’m a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. That said, I love any excuse to yell at the TV and eat some tasty vegan comfort food.

This year my partner decided to try his hand at vegan potato skins. Veganizing your basic potato skin is pretty simple. Instead of real cheese, use your favorite non-dairy alternative, such as Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds. Instead of real sour cream, use something like Tofutti Sour Supreme Cream. It’s as easy as that!
