Why “No Oil”?

Earlier this month I posted my Oil Free White Bean Hummus recipe and I've had a few people ask about my choice to limit my oil consumption. You might have even heard of people who eat "Whole Food Plant Based No Oil" (WFPBNO) and are curious about that choice. So I've decided to explain the reason why… Continue reading Why “No Oil”?

I Just Don’t Think I Could Ever Go Vegan

"I just don't think I could ever go vegan." I honestly can't count the number of times I've heard this statement since going vegan. Just mention the fact that you choose to eat this way, or that there's no butter or eggs in the cookies you brought to the BBQ, and it's guaranteed that at… Continue reading I Just Don’t Think I Could Ever Go Vegan

Vegan Quesadillas

So as you may remember, I recently perfected a Plant Based Cheese Sauce. It's freakin' delicious and if you haven't tried it yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. Since I created that cheese sauce, I've been playing around with how it can be used in various recipes (see my Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole recipe). I've tried… Continue reading Vegan Quesadillas

Vegan Nice Cream

I wasn't really a big fan of sweets until my competitions last year. The cravings for sweets were REAL. No joke, I bought 4 different pints of the Non-Dairy Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream for after the shows. Ever since then, I've still had a bit of a sweet tooth. Every now and then, I… Continue reading Vegan Nice Cream

Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

This. Recipe. Is. Bomb. Let's be honest, I love anything that is cheesy, but this recipe really is delicious. It's the perfect, healthier alternative to traditional broccoli and cheese casserole. This recipe calls for  brown rice, broccoli, and one batch of my very versatile Plant Based Cheese Sauce. Lots of checks on Dr. Gregor's Daily Dozen!… Continue reading Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Plant Based Cheese Sauce

I love finding someone else's recipe and trying it out. The process of trying to figure out another chef's creation and customizing the recipe to my preferences (something I hope you do when you try out my recipes) is fun for me. That's exactly what I did when I tested Lauren Toyota's Nacho Cheese Sauce from… Continue reading Plant Based Cheese Sauce

My Vegan Story

I haven't always been vegan. Shocking, I know. But in all seriousness, I grew up eating some meat and TONS of dairy. Meat was never really my favorite, but I ate it if it was put in front of me. Cheese, however is a totally different story. I loved cheese. I ate it every single… Continue reading My Vegan Story

Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches

I have been obsessed with buffalo tofu lately. It's been such a long time since I've had buffalo wings. I always loved the buffalo flavor, so it's nice to have a meaty, yet vegetarian substitute for buffalo chicken wings. This recipe is extremely simple and can be adapted to make patties (as shown below) or… Continue reading Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches
