Vegetarian Tikka Masala over Rice

Though we are not a completely vegetarian household, I enjoy eating vegetarian for a few reasons. First of all, my body feels healthier and my weight is more stable when I eat veggie, and I’m sure my husband’s cholesterol levels need it. Secondly, it is way better for the environment! The meat industry is one of the largest strains on our climate. Last, it’s actually pretty darn cost effective! This cauliflower tikka masalla was a recent invention that my household found successful. Recipe is linked, I hope you like it!

This vegetarian pasta salad is not only filling and delicious but it is super easy to toss together too! I included my review of the Banza chickpea pasta that my family tried and has been enjoying.

Three Cheese Tortellini with Butternut Squash – A Fall Meatless Monday Recipe

With Thanksgiving (and therefore lots of over-indulging ) around the corner, I am making extra sure to mix in some lighter meals over the next few weeks. Though with the tortellini this is surely not a 'low calorie' meal, I think it is a much healthier alternative to a pasta dish smothered in meat and a heavy-duty cream sauce! It however still hits all the fall comfort marks, and is a great vegetarian recipe. I hope you enjoy!

Balsamic & Tomato Toasts with Goat Cheese Spread

With some fresh tomatoes finally coming out of our garden, I had to put together a special dish for them that would really bring out their fresh flavors! With a mashup of some of my absolute favorite flavors (balsamic, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and of course CHEESE!) I put together these delightful little toasts that would be a wonderful appetizer or dinner any time of year!

Vegetarian Cassoulette – A Hearty and Beautiful Dish for Fall!

Fall is here, and therefore I am craving hearty stews. Casoulette is one of my favorite treats when the weather is dreary, but it is not the healthiest option. I decided to attempt a vegetarian (vegan actually) version of this French staple... of course not the same without meat, but accomplishes a much healthier dish and is a lovely fall supper!

Meatless Monday – Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta w/Garden Fresh Green Peas

This healthy Alfredo Sauce recipe uses a cauliflower and broth base, instead of butter and cream. It does still have some cheese, but is far healthier than the alternative. I mixed in some summer peas and made this dish as my Meatless Monday dinner. I hope you enjoy this very easy recipe!
