Asian food is not my forte, nor is it one of my favorite foods, but its something that I continue to try and decided to give cooking it a try as well. I knew I wanted to start off with a tofu dish and the idea of having every single flavor profile in one dish sounds wonderful, so that’s what […] Read more
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day & with my 8 am classes: I need food in my system before being able to sit through a lecture of Pharmacology! Being vegetarian, protein is something that we lack tremendously in our diets & how about tofu for being packed with the stuff!! I had bought some tofu […] Read more
Classic lasagnas layer meat sauces with layers of cheese and pasta, but why can’t a vegetarian pasta have the same amount of protein and still be delicious? So I developed a lasagna with tofu and mushrooms with the classic veggies of a vegetarian lasagna and ricotta yum!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 container of mushrooms
1 container of extra firm tofu
1 small […] Read more
I had a few veggies in my fridge and decided to make a rice out of it. You can make it with whatever you have on hand and make different combinations, but this is what I did :]
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 package baby bella mushrooms (about 5 oz worth)
1 large bell pepper (I used a multi colored one)
1 cup fresh […] Read more

My Communications professor (same professor for my Public Speaking class) told us that the best kind of handout is food/free stuff: me being a foodie, obviously chose the food route. My topic was iron deficiency anemia (because I’m anemic); so I […] Read more
I don’t have pictures but this soup is absolutely delicious :) and quite simple as well!

If you do want to make the broth, just take […] Read more

So here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups frozen spinach
1 cup water
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup corn
10 oz mushrooms
1 medium bell pepper
1 roasted […] Read more
This is the go-to food in my house. My roommates and I seem to eat these multiple times a week: why?! Well it’s SO EASY AND QUICK & tastes pretty good too! When I first started making these, they pretty much consisted of just cheese and a whole lot of it too, but after making many, I’ve come up with […] Read more
I love mushrooms and randomly, today, I had the urge to cook them! Last night when I was talking to my mom, she mentioned how we had spinach in the house. (I’m anemic and my iron level is pretty severely low and spinach is extremely rich in iron!) So I thought to myself, why not make myself some delicious pasta […] Read more
