Sinfully Simple Veggie Shepherd’s Pie

I love that this is hearty, easy to make, and immensely satisfying. It works very well to make as a veggie main for  a potluck and it’s easy to just use less or more of the ingredients as needed. What really makes this recipe, in my humble opinion, is the stock in the veggie mince…

Never-Fail Risotto with Peppers & Pine Nuts

I think the reason risotto is an Italian dish is that it takes the patience and stirring power of a small Italian grandmother to get it right. However, this never-fail risotto recipe is surprisingly easy and quick, even without said Italian granny. It’s also super easy to adapt depending on your taste in veggies. I…

Roasted Eggplant & Red Pepper Tostadas

If you’re looking for a super quick and easy appetizer recipe, look no further. This tostada recipe is very similar to a bruschetta but I find it more tasty. The best part, though,  (besides the rave reviews you’ll get from hungry devourers) is that it is very quick to make and can be made the…
