Halloween edition: Jack skellington veggie pot pie

So I recently discovered pot pies. Who here is a pot pie fan (raise of hands?) I admit I was never into pot pie as a kid. But now that I’m an adult I look for any excuse to eat pie, even if it’s savory pie lol Since starting my new job at this bakery I’ve…

Sneaky (green) brownies

So basically what brought this about was this recipe here -> click me I saw the recipe for these a few weeks ago. Originally I kept going back and forth on whether I should make them. But then I ended up with some extra diced spinach after cooking one night and was wondering what to…

Meatless Monday: Vegan Lentil & Bean Salad

This dish combines fresh, raw ingredients like mixed bell peppers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, broccoli, and red onion along with some protein (black, garbanzo beans, lentils), and grains (barley) to give you a nice, well rounded (and tasty) meal. So now that I’ve pretty much given you all of the ingredients, ill just leave you…

Vegetarian black bean burgers

This recipe is definitely a keeper! Not only was it delicious but all you have to do is throw the ingredients into your crock pot and cook anywhere from 4-8 hours. I let mine sit for about 5 hours on a higher setting and it yielded a nice end result. The large amount of veggies…

Thai whole grain spaghetti with homemade peanut sauce

So per usual, I attempted to experiment in the kitchen yesterday and failed miserably. I have heard a lot of good things about spaghetti squash so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and see what all the hype was about. I understand the concept behind it; for those looking for a lower calorie…

Puréed lentil, barley, and vegetable soup

So I originally started making a completely different recipe. And then about half way through I realized I kind of wanted to make something a little different. Luckily, both recipes contained similar ingredients so the end product still came out fine. It doesn’t look completely appetizing (picture baby food) which is why I decided to…

Smoked sweet potato and roasted red pepper soup

Since the weather has decided to be more fall like as of late, I thought it would be the perfect time to make some homemade soup. A recipe from here sparked my interest so I made a few modifications and gave it a go. This soup has the perfect balance of smokey and sweet! It’s…
