Sheet Pan Mexican Veggie Dinner

Another winning recipe from Alexis from Hummisapien.  Check out her web site here. I am all about tasty, fast, and flexible.  Like you, I am a busy person just trying to stay as healthy as I can so when I cook it has to meet four criteria.   1. It must be nutrient dense. 2. It can't take longer than one hour to make. 3. It has to taste really good. 4.…

Chipotle Cauliflower Tacos

I adapted this recipe from a Meatless Monday recipe in the May/June 2017 issue of Cooking Light Magazine.  It was so good, I had to share!  I really appreciate that they point out in a side bar of the recipe that trading in a pound of ground beef for cauliflower in your tacos, saves about 1,800 gallons of water.  So this recipe made with cauliflower…

I was inspired to make this dish…

Rob's Black Bean Sliders

I went to the Cooking School of Aspen last Monday with my friend Bland to take Chef Rob Nesby's class on Vegetarian Sliders.  My favorite was the Black Bean Slider which I am sharing with you! This slider has great flavor and a nice firm texture.  There is nothing worse than a flimsy veggie burger that falls apart when you try to eat it.  Since there…
