This Vegan Cuban Buddha Bowl is the BEST thing I’ve eaten all week!  I created this recipe in an effort to get ready for a 4-day-get-a-way to Cuba with the Mister.  Yes, you read that right… We are in fact escaping by ourselves for FOUR WHOLE DAYS.

Cauli-Rice

I have FINALLY jumped on the “Cauli-Rice” bandwagon and I’m not sad about it.  I wasn’t too sure how I was going to like this…as I’m not a big fan of cauliflower at all unless it’s smashed like a potato and smothered in butter and cream.  Oh, but this!!!  This little side dish is SO much healthier and it’s filled with lots of colorful veggies .  Y’all know I like to eat the rainbow.  There’s something about the sesame oil that gives it that fried rice taste that I LOVE.  AND to make things even better, you can buy the cauliflower already ‘riced’ (freezer section) so now you don’t have to worry about getting cauliflower all over your kitchen when you rice it yourself!  I’ll definitely be making this on a regular basis and I hope you do too!  🙂 Continue reading

Falafel with a Lemon Tahini Sauce

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Middle Eastern food around here.  Like – love it.  There’s a great restaurant in Fort Lauderdale that we go to… they have the BEST hummus and falafel.  I love everything about Middle Eastern food.  The spices… the HUMMUS…the meat and rice… I’m really not even a big rice eater, but for some reason I love the spices they put on it.  If you’re not into all the meat, there’s always great vegetarian/vegan options.  And now that I’ve made Falafel – it’s my new favorite thing to eat.
