This time of the year, when there is a chill in the air, warming comfort food is essential! I especially love dishes using squash, which is one of my favorites! This dish uses spaghetti squash to make a hearty and healthy meal! The sauce is flavorful, and I use the squash in place of where spaghetti would be in a spaghetti casserole. This is just the thing to make on a cool night! It reheats wonderfully too, so if you have leftovers you can enjoy it tomorrow!
Enchiladas are the sort of comfort food that is perfect for Fall! These ones get a seasonal twist and extra veggie with pumpkin in the filling. They also happen to be vegan and gluten free. These are delicious, easy to make and so good!
Warming soups are the perfect thing to enjoy when the weather starts to cool down. This ramen is easy to make, healthy and so good! It features a flavorful plant based broth, teriyaki tofu and fall root vegetables!
You can turn canned chickpeas into a delicious meal with this easy to make salad! I combine them with a bit of jalapenos, cumin, lime juice and cilantro to give it plenty of flavor, and some bell peppers for color and it is so good and so easy to make. This is perfect for summer! Serve it over romaine lettuce for more of a main dish meal, or as is for a side.
I love pasta salads in the summer! This one combines veggies, tofu for protein and a silky sesame based sauce for a delicious cool meal! It is healthy, easy to make and can even be made ahead of time. I like to make a batch and eat them for lunch for a few days.
If you are looking for a quick and easy Summer meal, fajitas are the perfect choice! These are healthy, flavorful and delicious! All you need to do is sautee veggies and warm the beans and dinner is ready! Feel free to swap in your favorite veggies in these, if you can get them local even better since the are in season right now!
I love tofu because it is a blank palette for flavors! One of my favorite things to make with it is buffalo tofu! If you like the flavor of buffalo wings, but want a healthier plant based option this is perfect! It is easy to make and so good!
One of my all time favorite things to make for dinner is burrito bowls! They have all of the deliciousness of a burrito with no rolling required! Also, they are a healthy option that is satisfying and packed full of flavor. I like to make a double batch of this recipe and prep all of the ingredients so I can have easy meals for the next few days!
I love a good chili! It is something I can make a big pot of and enjoy for a few days and it only gets better as it sits overnight. This one uses different types of green peppers, along with white beans and corn and it is not only beautiful to look at but really delicious and good for you as well! It also happens to be gluten free and vegan. This is perfect paired with corn bread!
I like to make soups featuring veggies that are available for the current season. This one features ramps, leeks and asparagus, a seasonal twist on the classic bean soup minestrone. This is hearty, healthy and delicious, perfect served with a piece of crusty sour dough bread on the side!
