Non-Dairy Vegetarian Chilaquiles Recipe

Difficulty Medium

When I do make brunch at home, I am going for healthy and tasty.  So this is my interpretation of a somewhat healthy/tasty chilaquiles recipe.  I had leftover ingredients from enchiladas I made a few days before so I thought why not make a brunch version of an enchilada with my favorite part of the enchiladas…the red sauce!

Tasty Vegan Hungarian Mushroom Soup Recipe

Difficulty Medium

Being half Hungarian I grew up eating a lot of paprika and dill, so I find these flavors extremely comforting. Dill and paprika go so well with one of my favorite veggies, mushrooms! All that umami with herbaceous notes and spice is a dream come true! Unfortunately, a lot of Hungarian food has meat/sour cream/general dairy in it and since I don’t cook with dairy, I wanted to veganize this classic, cozy dish.

Saucy Szechuan Eggplant Recipe

Cooks in 1 hour Difficulty Easy

I was inspired to cook Szechuan Eggplant after purchasing some Japanese eggplant from the farmers market.  While I have cooked with regular eggplant many times, Japanese eggplant is long, lean, and purple.  It’s absolutely beautiful.  Szechuan eggplant is also quite simple to make, but you do need to baby the eggplant a bit since it is really easy to overcook and undercook it.

Chinese Eggplant Recipe with Seitan

Cooks in 1 hour Difficulty Medium

I love Chinese food but unfortunately the more fast/convenient Chinese food places tend to be high in sodium without fresh vegetables.  This recipe is also based off of my mom’s Chinese food recipes.  What I love about this dish is that it is hearty, delicious, and affordable!  I am all about the sauces and I love this garlic sauce!
