Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy

Another thanksgiving recipe coming to you! Gravy is a staple in a thanksgiving meal. It is topped on everything and anything! Mashed potatoes, stuffing, veggies…you name it. Turkey gravy is often very salty and not vegan of course. I threw together this really simple and easy gravy that will hit the spot this thanksgiving.

It is amazing on top of my Vegan Lentil Stuffing! This gravy is lower in sodium then your traditional gravy, and is made out of pretty simple ingredients. Continue reading “Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy”

Vegan Lentil Stuffing | Healthy & Easy

It’s finally that time of year! Thanksgiving is less then a week away and I can not wait any longer. I am so excited to stuff myself with a ton of delicious vegan food. Before I was vegan I always thought that I would start hating thanksgiving, because there would be no options. No turkey?! What am I going to eat?!

What I have learned over this past year of being vegan is that, I don’t have to miss out on anything!! Almost anything can be made vegan. From mashed potatoes to stuffing, I can have it all. Last year I made a couple recipes of my own for thanksgiving and I didn’t have a chance to share it with you all. Unfortunately, those recipes got lost. This year I decided to give those recipes another try and I made them even better this time.  Continue reading “Vegan Lentil Stuffing | Healthy & Easy”

Vegan Cranberry Pecan Pie w/ Candied Pecans

Coming back with another delicious fall recipe! I have never been a great pie maker so making my own recipe for one made me quite hesitant. To my surprise, it actually turned out really well on the first try. Of course I re-made it a couple times to get it just right.

This was actually a fun recipe for me to make, because it was originally a challenge between my fellow vegan friend, Trisha, and I. We decided to pick three ingredients that were “fall-inspired” and make a dish out of it. The ingredients were:

  • Maple syrup
  • Cranberries
  • Pecans

Vegan Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups

Just another pumpkin flavoured recipe coming at you LOL. You can never have too much pumpkin….well I guess maybe. I whipped this recipe up today. It was super quick and easy and a perfect little treat for this season. 

What I love about this recipe is that it’s super easy and a lot healthier then your traditional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups….and in my opinion it tastes a heck of a lot better. All of the ingredients are relatively healthy, but sweet enough to cure that sweet tooth at the end of the week.  Continue reading “Vegan Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups”
