Vegan Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos with Purple Slaw

These spicy vegan tacos feature jackfruit, a common ingredient in Indian cuisine with a texture that resembles pulled pork. Our adaptation of this taco filling recipe (originally from Forks over Knives) has a spicy chipotle sauce that also features smooth and sweet diced potatoes. The Purple slaw is slightly sweet […]

 

Thai Curry Veggie Noodles with Chicken

We do not follow the Whole30 Program, but we found this recipe in the Food Network archives and it sounded delightful. It’s light, flavorful, and colorful; the cool veggies and slightly spicy dressing are a perfect complement to grilled chicken. A plus: spiralized cucumber is crisp and festive! We prepped […]

 

Chili-Rubbed Pork Chops

This lean cut of pork is perfectly seasoned and not too spicy. Serve with our favorite Ricolicious, chunky avocado, and fresh tomato salsa for a colorful and complete meal. Thanks to the Food Network Kitchen for this recipe, which we adapted to make low-FODMAP friendly by omitting the garlic. The […]

 

Alaska Turkey Burger Salad

Alaska Burgers are typically made with ground beef, but since we prefer turkey, we decided to adjust the recipe to fit our preferences. To keep the recipe sugar-free, we used Coconut Aminos instead of traditional Worcestershire sauce. It adds a sweet and salty flavor that we really enjoy. We first […]

 

Slow Cooked Indian “Butter” Chicken

This is one of our favorite recipes; it’s our take on traditional Indian Butter Chicken, without the dairy, and on permanent rotation in our meal plans. The shredded chicken stays moist in the aromatic, spicy, and slightly sweet non-dairy sauce. We were able to get extra veggies into our boys, […]

 

Skinny Potato Wedges

Honestly, you’ll never want freezer french fries again, after slicing up a batch of these fresh roasted potatoes! This is the most simple preparation; we used avocado oil for extra crunch.  

 

Sweet Potato Crust Vegan Pizza

This was my first time making a potato-based pizza crust, and this recipe from the Whole Life Challenge was foolproof. Really easy, and the results were great! The only thing I’ll do different next time is add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dough. Step 1: make the dough. I […]

 

Vegan Shephard’s Pie

This version of Shepherd’s Pie replaces the traditional ground lamb with green lentils, which don’t get mushy but keep their hearty texture and balance well against the creamy vegan potato topping. Based on how quickly our boys cleared their dinner plates, this vegan adaptation is just as comforting, savory, and […]

 

Salmon Hash with Tarragon Snap Peas

This fish and potato hash has become an instant family favorite! Both of our boys asked for seconds. We made good use of a pound of bright and sweet fresh snap peas we received in our local farm basket through a super-simple “blanch and season” preparation. The combination of crisp […]

 

Black Bottom Banana Bread

I’m not going to lie; every few weeks we intentionally allow a few bananas on our counter to over-ripen, just so we can bake this bread. The original recipe comes from the Whole Life Challenge, and while it’s great as-is. I wanted to make a vegan version. To make this […]
