robert irvine pasta salad

This Pasta Salad and Robert Irvine LIVE Giveaway are sponsored by Omaha Performing Arts.  I received free tickets to "Robert Irvine LIVE," but was not compensated in any other way.

french onion chickpeas 4

A flavorful French onion-inspired way to make roasted chickpeas.  These chickpeas are perfect for snackin' or as soup and salad toppers! I am going to take a stab at what you are probably thinking right now... "Didn't she just share a recipe for roasted chickpeas yesterday?" You, my friend, would be correct!  What can I say?  I [...]

buffalo chickpea salad 3

Crunchy, spicy, and bold chickpeas that will warm you right up on a brisk Fall day.  These chickpeas are the perfect addition to a classic salad. I am a roasted chickpea aficionado. I love them in tacos.  I love them in salads.  And I love them on their own as a snack. It turns out that [...]

tlt salad 3

Is there anything better than a BLT sandwich?  Maybe a vegan "TLT" in the form of a salad, perhaps? BLTs are just one of those staple sandwiches in the American diet, you know?  But maybe not so much for us veggie-eating folks... Just because we do not eat bacon does not mean that vegetarians and [...]

There are plenty of chickpea salads floating around the blogosphere- so many of which are extremely delicious- but [...]

summer egg salad 11

This delicious egg salad incorporates the tastes of Summer produce: fresh peppers, peas, and tomatoes. I eat approximately 90% vegan and one of the main reasons why it is not 100% is because of my love for eggs.  I really love eggs. Scrambled eggs. Poached eggs. Sunnyside-up eggs. Hardboiled eggs. Let's be real.  Eggs are good [...]

pasta primavera 2

A hearty Summertime pasta salad that is chocked full of veggies and is big on flavor. I was a picky child.  I was picky about my hair.  I was picky about my clothing (apparently I hated when my socks were twisted?).  And I was most definitely extremely picky about my food. As a result, the fact [...]

This Asian Quinoa and Veggie Salad with Tempeh makes for the perfect meal for two or three or a fantastic pairing to any Summertime gathering.  Fresh veggies, protein-packed tempeh, and saucy quinoa all come together for a refreshing dish. I have gone salad crazy up in here! And no, I am not referring to the [...]

southwest quinoa salad 10

I may be on vacation right now, but that does not mean I cannot stop by for a quick chit-chat.  Who am I kidding?  I typed this up weeks ago in preparation for today ;)  Normally I invite guest posters to my blog when I take a vacation/blogcation, but sometimes even that can be a [...]
