If you want pasta sans the carbs, you’re not alone. But now there is a way to get the best of both worlds – spiralized veggies! In this recipe, I slice zucchini with a spiralizer (even though you don’t need one) to create pasta that is lighter, lower-carb and absolutely delicious underneath a simple leek [...]

Yesterday, I posted a vegan recipe for ground beef. Today, I put that ground beef to use in a spaghetti bolognese. Without the animal protein, you get yourself a delicious and filling pasta dish. Enjoy!
Whenever I first began eating a more plant-based diet, the avocado became a huge part of my life. I rarely ate it growing up, only in the occasional guacamole and never did I eat it by itself. It simply wasn’t something my parents ever though to buy or what I gravitated to when eating out. [...]
I’ve made raw zucchini before – almost 2 years ago. My photography/presentation skills were lackluster to say the least. Today’s recipe isn’t a far departure from the original concept, it just has a few tweaks here and there to complement my pantry and the season. This time, the sauce is tahini based and brings richness [...]
Spaghetti squash is a healthy alternative to regular spaghetti. Lower in carbs and full of vitamins and minerals, it’s a far cry from the empty starches inherent in white dough spaghetti. I paired this squash with roasted Brussels sprouts, red pepper, and onions. The result is a hearty, but skinny pasta dish. Enjoy!
For EcoSalon, I’ve taken a 1965 Betty Crocker recipe for raw green bell peppers stuffed with macaroni and cheese and ham. My take is quite a drift from the original, but the main elements are in place – stuffed pepper and pasta. Enjoy!
A simple spaghetti warmed with melted butter, garlic, mint, and peas for a light, but fragrant pasta dish. Granted spaghetti is great with a comforting, rich sauce, sometimes I just like it to not weigh me down. A little bit of butter goes a long way, and it won’t derail your healthy diet. In fact, [...]
A chunky, hearty pasta isn’t reserved for those recipes involving a meat sauce. This recipe takes mushrooms and vegetables to create a meaty, filling bolognese to top spelt-based spaghetti. Check out the full recipe at Greatist.com. The recipe as it stands is vegan, but feel free to top with cheese for extra creaminess.
This recipe is a vegan version of macaroni and cheese. The cheese has a sweet potato base. Skeptical? I was too until I tried it. The sweet potato is baked and mixed with strong flavors to give it the “cheesy” touch. Combined with a whole-grain or whole-wheat pasta, the result is a rich, satisfying macaroni [...]
Only these vegan meatballs are without the soy or nuts, which oftentimes defy the whole eating healthy theme, because they’re extremely heavy and hard to digest in such quantities (and even more so when cooked). The foundation of these meatballs are eggplant and whole-wheat bread crumbs. Sure, there’s bread in this one, but if you [...]
