Vegetarian/vegan cooking (at least I think) often gets a bad rep from the general public in regards to flavor and how filling it is. I know I have heard plenty of people joke about how they can't live off a plate of lettuce, or that nothing tastes better than a steak. Honestly, I have been trying to dive more into vegetarian eating for sustainability reasons, and being a lifelong meat-eater am finding there is no reason for this stigma! There are tons of creative meat recipes and substitutes out there, and a well-prepared vegetarian meal can be just as if not more delicious. I set out to try and discover a new vegetarian restaurant in Seattle and came across the "No Bones Beach Club" in Ballard and thought it was fantastic! Here is my full experience.
This recipe is a fantastic, cozy end-of-summer dinner that has both summer vegetables paired with a hearty, creamy soup. It is delicious and comforting and is even vegetarian! I hope you enjoy this summer vegetable corn chowder too.
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.

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!
A simple and healthy cauliflower puree soup recipe. It can be made vegetarian, or dressed up with some crab meat or scallops too!
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!
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!
