Easy Vegan Caesar Dressing

9:43 AM

I've shared a recipe for a dairy free caesar dressing before but I'm always looking and trying new and different ways to make my recipes easier.
And I've found an even easier way to make this Caesar dressing with even fewer ingredients for your salad dressing needs! 
Easy Vegan Caesar Dressing
This dressing is perfect for just putting overtop of a salad or making a traditional Caesar salad with all the goodies like parmesan and croutons (GF and Vegan of course ). I even like to add pasta to my Caesar salad!

Broccoli Noodle Stir Fry

9:00 AM

This is an older recipe that has been a staple in our house for many years. It's quick, tasty, and modifiable!
Typically I make it with Chicken and Broccoli, but it can be made with anything else!
For my Vegan/Vegetarian readers, add more hearty veggies like zucchini, mushrooms, or even more broccoli in place to the chicken.

One Pot Lasagna Pasta

8:00 AM

I love a good One Pot pasta dish.

Let's be real. I love anything with gluten-free pasta 
lady and the tramp kiss GIF

I love Lasagna but sometimes waiting for the typically oven cooked lasagna takes too long and is a way to hot to make in the summer.
That's what inspired this recipe. A craving for a cold night dish on a hot summers weeknight.

Summer has kicked into full gear friends so I'm not gonna lie, it's put a damper on the cooking front.
But have no fear! I found an old recipe, tested it a few times and I'm happy to share it with you!

Vegan Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli
Sometimes you have to get creative with what the meatless product creators have given you. For instance, Beef and Broccoli typically has thicker cuts of meat but finding a vegan alternative that resembles the thicker cuts is hard.
