Vegan Beyond Meat Unstuffed Pepper Bowls is an easy to make, comfort food type meal, that is 100% vegan.  It’s bright, colorful, and has all the flavors you love from a classic stuffed pepper recipe.  For those of you who aren’t vegan, or aren’t familiar with Beyond Meat, it’s a 100% plant-based protein.  I personally think it’s delicious and substitute it in a lot of dishes.  In its raw form, it has the texture of ground beef.  In its cooked form, it has a similar texture to ground meat, has a slightly nutty flavor, and is juicy (not like other vegetarian or vegan meats that are bland and dry).  It’s hard to describe but it has good flavor. You can add beans, corn, lentils, rice, mushrooms – anything you like to these unstuffed pepper bowls.  They are completely customizable but if you prefer to follow a recipe, it can be found here. Start by cooking the rice … Continue reading

Not too long ago, I hopped on the TikTok trend where you bake a block of feta cheese with cherry tomatoes and when done, toss it with cooked noodles for a light and refreshing pasta.  It was a HUGE hit in our house so I figured I would try it again but with a few changes.  The original recipe is for Baked Feta and Tomato Pasta but the recipe I’m going to share with you today is for Baked Feta and Vegetable Pasta. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the feat in the center of the baking sheet.  This recipe calls for a block of feta but if it’s OK to use crumbled if that’s the only available option at the grocery store.  Just pile it high and try to keep it as … Continue reading

Stuffed Peppers are a favorite at my house.  There are so many possibilities for stuffed peppers so you can really cater the filling to meet any dietary need.  Our recent craving has been for Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers.  They are quick to make, fairly simple to assemble, vegetarian / vegan, healthy, and tasty 🙂 You can make this dish more colorful by using a combination of green, orange, red, or yellow bell peppers.  I’m partial to red bell peppers for no particular reason so that is what I choose to use.  I typically serve these as a main dish, but they could easily be a side dish if served with other items. Look for medium to large bell peppers because they are easier to stuff and hold more ingredients. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. Cut each bell pepper in half, length … Continue reading

Lemon Orzo with Roasted Vegetables is not your typical pasta salad.  It’s packed with texture and flavor yet is very light and refreshing.  It works well as a side dish or as a standalone meal.  I think it’s best served warm but room temp or chilled is also fine, it’s all about your preference. The vegetables are delicious when roasted because they are slightly caramelized.  I like to use bell pepper, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and red onion but you can substitute any veggies you like – eggplant, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, etc.  You can really make this your own by using the veggies you crave. You can also top this salad with pine nuts for a little crunch or some crumbled feta cheese.  If you choose to skip the cheese, this is a great vegan based dish. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees and lining a baking sheet (or … Continue reading
