Meat Free Monday: Quinoa Burgers/Patties

by Angela on February 27, 2012

Last month I shared a similar recipe, Cheesy Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Garlic Aioli Sauce.   And while I liked that one a lot, I looooove this one.  I do think the name is misleading…quinoa burger.  I guess if you made them nice and thick and put them in a bun, I’d call them a burger.  […]


This recipe caught my eye on Pinterest, my new addiction.  I’m always trying to find new ways to prepare Quinoa and we have featured a few on this site already: Black Bean Quinoa Burgers Crispy Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds Red Quinoa Avocado Salad Breakfast […]


Meat Free Monday: Potato Soup

by Deena on January 17, 2012

Today’s recipe is homemade potato soup.  I decided on this recipe  this version had cilantro in it which I hadn’t really seen in other versions of potato soup.  This recipe requires a little bit of time for it to all come together maybe about close to an hour from prep to table.  And it’s not […]


Meat Free Monday: Spinach Lasagna Rolls

by Angela on January 9, 2012

About a year or so ago the hubby suggested I join FA…you know, Facebook Anonymous.  Okay, I admit I Facebook a lot (isn’t admitting I have a problem the first step to recovery?).  I knew it was a “problem” when my kids started saying, “Hold on, I’m Facebooking” during their pretend play or my oldest […]


Meat Free Monday: Penne with Vodka Sauce

by Deena on January 2, 2012

Here’s hoping you had a great start to the New Year.  Personally, I spend every January 1st with my entire family celebrating the new year with our traditional Southern meal: Ham, Black Eyed Peas, Collard Greens and Corn Bread.  The black eyed peas and collard greens are supposed to represent dollars & sense and bring […]


My first mistake with this recipe is I tried to pass it off on the hubby as a main dish.  He didn’t buy it…not for one second.  It seemed like a hearty meal to me, but he says he would prefer it as a side in the future (maybe so he can choose not to […]


For today’s meat free recipe, I found another recipe that is part of the Whole Living 28-Day Challenge that I wanted to try!  And if you are a mushroom lover like I am, this recipe is for you.  If you’re not, well, you may want to pass, or cut down on the amount of mushrooms […]

Meat Free Monday: Tomato Soup v2

by Angela on December 13, 2011

So this is how this recipe made it on the menu.  I bought one of those big clam shells of tomatoes from Costco and I didn’t want them to go bad.  So I pulled up the last recipe I tried for tomato soup.  Two things from the ingredient list were missing in my house….drats.  Normally […]


A friend of ours sent us this meat free recipe to try out.  I love that Angela and I (along with our families) have become “official” taste testers for meat free recipes. My oldest son, Owen, and I loved this recipe.  The rest of the family not so much – which I expected since […]


Meat Free Monday: Black Bean-Quinoa Burgers

by Angela on November 21, 2011

Let’s just get this out in the open…if you are looking for something to satisfy that craving for a big, juicy beef burger, this is not it.  It’s a bean burger.  It tastes like beans.  It doesn’t taste like beef.  Once I got the idea of beef substitute out of my head, I was able […]
