Vegan Chili con Tempeh

It’s pretty much a polar vortex in Chicago right now. With the bone-chilling temps comes the need for something warm and comforting AF, so we put together this vegan chili con tempeh. What is vegan chili con tempeh? Chili, as most folks call it, is actually short for chile con carne (or chili with meat)....

Plant-Based Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin Chili is one of the first things we crave (second to a pumpkin spice latte, of course) when fall rolls around. Soups in general are a staple for us when it’s cold. To save on the salt intake and avoid canned alternatives we go the homemade route. Aside from chopping veggies, soups (including our...

Vegan Red Beans & Rice Burgers

Today we’re putting a twist on a previously shared recipe in honor of an upcoming trip we’re taking to Seymour, Wisconsin, for the 29th annual Burger Fest.

Baked Sweet & Spicy Cauliflower Wings

Family visits are always a fun reason for us to play tourist and we relish the time we get to spend with our far-flung loved ones. Recently some family from Atlanta came to town for the first time, so we wanted to show them all that our Midwest metropolis has to offer… or at least...

Szechuan Green Beans & Mushrooms with Grilled Tofu

Before we get into this recipe we’d like to get a little something off our chest: We think green beans are a little underrated. We don’t cook with them often because they don’t turn up in recipes often, but when we do, we remember how delicious they are. They’re also inexpensive, healthy and they can...

Lo Mein Salad with Cabbage, Red Pepper, Carrots & Spicy Lemon Dressing

They say if you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen, but in an apartment with no A/C, sometimes a little something’s gotta give. We love Asian food and consume our fair share of peanut sauced pastas, but tonight we wanted something lighter and fresh to combat the heat and humidity. With that...
