I have a super easy and delicious weeknight recipe for you here, that delivers all of the amazing flavors of Thai takeout, without the hassle or the Postmates premium. This dish comes together in no time, and uses just a few sauces and ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
It’s important to have trust when dining out. It’s important to be able to go out to a restaurant and have the staff understand what the word “vegan” means, and be able to answer basic questions about the menu and its components. And if a particular staff member does not know, they need to be able to ask. It’s simple, right?
My veganism is important to me, so please don’t just guess, and please don’t confirm that something is vegan unless you are absolutely sure.
As the weather cools down a bit, I start to crave warm and comforting dishes like chili. With these black bean chili oats, you get all of the flavor of a chili mixed with the whole grain goodness of oats. The hearty black beans paired with the chewiness of the steel cut oats make this a super satisfying go-to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Risotto was one of the first dishes that I tried to “master”, but let’s be honest, it can be a bit of a time suck. However, if you use a similar flavor profile, and sub in steel cut oat for the rice, you have a satisfying and savory meal with about a third the effort. Take this basic recipe as a guide, and go crazy!
One of my favorite combinations before going vegan was chicken, bacon, and ranch. I used to always order it as a sub at Quiznos, or as a topping on pizzas. There’s something about the smokey saltiness of the bacon, mixed with the tanginess of of ranch dressing, supported by the chewiness of the chicken that really gets me. So, whether you’re craving this perfect storm of ingredients in a sandwich or a pizza, these Chicken, Bacon and Ranch Pizza Buns will hit the spot. This recipe starts with store bought or homemade pizza dough, and if stuffed with chopped Beyond Chicken, Smart Bacon, Chao cheese, and homemade cashew ranch dressing. Whether fresh out of the oven, or reheated in the microwave, these incredible pizza buns will be a hit with children, or those that are still children at heart.
