Chanterelle Mushroom Pasta

This chanterelle mushroom recipe was created after a trip to the Farmers’ Market. All the veggies looked sooooo yummy that I wanted to make use of them! The sweetness of the sungold tomatoes combined with the smoky/ woody flavor of the chanterelle mushrooms was absolutely divine! I can’t wait to make this chanterelle mushroom recipe again. (Note: you can use quinoa or rice pasta to make this dish gluten-free).
This is an easy vegan meal for two. Recipe may be doubled or tripled.

Black & White Quinoa Timbale with Wasabi Pesto and Nori Strips

This version is a modification of Lauren Ulm’s recipe of the same name, from the book, Vegan Yum Yum. We simplified it, but the original is still awesome too! You can make this a wheat-free recipe by using pasta made from rice or quinoa!

Baked Tofu (with Sesame Seeds)

Protein-rich and completely delish, this tofu dish cooks in the oven while you’re making the rest of your meal. It’s an easy vegan recipe for entertaining.

Dairy-free Spinach Florentine

This vegan spinach florentine recipe is one of my favorites.  The sauce is so rich and creamy!  And if you use rice or quinoa pasta, the dish becomes vegan AND gluten-free.  Once you learn how to make a vegan cream sauce, you can use it as a base for other dishes.
