Easy Baked Mushroom Herb Polenta with Rosemary

There are few things more challenging than getting a healthy dinner on the table after a busy day!  I swear that it’s one of the hardest parts of being an adult (let’s not get started on taxes and laundry).  I sure have a bigger appreciation for my mom these days! Polenta is one of those foods that can feel daunting … View The Post

Vegan Mushroom Wellington

Despite what many think, eating plant-based is NOT difficult! The term ‘plant-based’ can mean different things to different people, but in short, it really just means eating mostly plants. And the benefits are endless!

Portabella Freekeh Veggie Burgers

I strongly debated whether or not to include the ingredient ‘freekeh’ in the title of this post.  It’s not exactly a mainstream ingredient, and I’m embarrassed to say that I actually just learned how to pronounce it, let alone cook with it!  I decided to throw caution to the wind and throw it in there.  What a rebel.
