So last night, I made some great Sloppy Lenny’s (Lentil Sloppy Joe’s). I was planning on making Lentil Stroganoff (based on this recipe), but realized it’s better off with mushrooms (which we don’t have) so I decided to skip the pasta and go straight to the bun. It was delicious, I’ve gotta say.
Which is why I’m surprised that my sister always makes “yuck” faces whenever we mention lentils. The philosopher’s bean!
Tofu, also called bean curd, is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curds into a soft, white block. It originated in China over 2,000 years ago, and first appeared in the United States in the early 1800s. Tofu is a nutritious, versatile, convenient, and flavorful addition to any diet. Here are 15 delicious ways to cook tofu.
For families that don’t do gluten and dairy, and avoid sugar and artificial ingredients, Halloween can leave kids feeling left out. These frozen banana mummies are a fun and festive food craft that will make any goblin feel included in the fun and they are far healthier than a candy bar!
So I have a HUGE can of 100% pumpkin I bought for pumpkin breakfast quinoa and nothing else to do with it so I found some vegan pumpkin recipes. ENJOY!
1. Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte - beverage
Ditch Starbucks and make your pumpkin spice beverage in house - sip in your slippers :)

These tender round gems are a new sweet fall treat of mine. Pumpkin combines with chocolate and rustic oats for a flavor that is naughty-meets-nice.

Oh my goodness I LOVE this recipe. And even better, so does my husband! Warm vegan breakfast sausage combines with a hint of vegan cheese, homemade pumpkin butter, greens and some savory mushrooms. This is a breakfast bite to CRAVE!

8. Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun Layer Cake - dessert
This rich and fluffy dessert is pretty much food porn on a plate. It looks like a fluffy layer cake with melty, creamy vegan frosting - but it tastes like a pumpkin-infused cinnamon bun with swirls of cinnamon throughout. So decadent. So good. So splurge-worthy.
9. Pumpkin Spice Cashew Cheese Dip - appetizer
I created this recipe when I was on a cashew cheese kick a few years ago. And it is quite warm and cozy! It starts out with some soaked cashews and ends up with a warm-from-the-oven dip of pumpkin spice deliciousness. This dip can be served warm or chilled. Party-approved. Savory-meets-sweet.

I love this soup on a chilly fall night when I am craving something ultra-cozy, calming, comfy and delicious. The recipe is simple and the flavors of sage and pumpkin are outstanding. This is a must-try for creamy soup fans.

Found this great recipe while looking for perfect date night pasta dishes. Red wine spaghetti with Broccoli! I’ll be trying it out with a cheap homemade white garlic vegan “cheeze” sauce instead of the suggested Parmigiano-Reggiano. A very simple but impressive dish for a night in canoodling!
