Inspired by my recent trip to Rome & southern Italy, I’ve rounded up this list of 6 Italian-inspired vegan recipes that will transport you to Italy in an instant. You guys, word cannot even begin to describe how amazing the food in Italy tasted. I tried to explain it to my mom the other day, but words failed me. Let’s just say, Italian food is my new favorite cuisine! Click through to read more about our plant-based foodie adventures.
Tada! I’ve finally posted a savory recipe like many of y’all requested. This buckwheat ramen with chickpeas & garlic tahini sauce is actually a brand new recipe that I recently tried for the first time and I’m seriously addicted. I can’t tell you how delicious these flavors are together, plus they go just perfectly with a big bowl of vegan coleslaw on the side! This vegan & gluten-free recipe showcases a mixture of my Southern roots and current lifestyle in Southeast Asia.
I’m telling you now this recipe was completely a happy accident. But it’s the happiest accident I’ve made in a while, that’s for sure! I was cleaning out my fridge when I found half of a butternut squash I’d bought last week. I was trying to decide what to do with it, when I realized I should bake it and turn it into a creamy vegan cheese sauce for my favorite mac & cheese. Long story short, it then hit me that I’d run out of brown rice pasta, but there was no turning back at that point. So, I swapped the pasta for some brown rice and here you have it. The end result was this creamy, yummy vegan and gluten-free butternut squash risotto with mashed chickpea salad and dill on top.
