Nacho “Cheesy” Bean Dip

cheese

This takes just 10-15 minutes to throw together and it is the perfect dip for chips, crackers, or veggies, and is also amazing in tacos, burritos, sandwiches and even on nachos!! Basically, it is good in or on anything!! 😀

This is packed full of healthy ingredients, super low fat, AND has no added oil so you can feel good about devouring it all right after you make it! …seriously though, I’ve done it…

Lastly, it is super easy to double or triple this recipe, which you will probably do in the future because you are going to want this stuff on EVERYTHING!! Continue reading “Nacho “Cheesy” Bean Dip”

Vegan Pizza Dough

I LOVE pizza. Seriously. Daniel & I could eat it every single day of our lives!!!! Noted, we try really hard not to!!! But this crust makes it even harder because it is SO delicious. It gets wonderfully crisp on the outside, has such a good flavor and holds up very nicely to LOTS of toppings!!! (see above and below!)

Enough chit-chat. Just make this crust because I know you will LOVE it. Even if you aren’t vegan…you’ll STILL love it!!! Best crust I have EVER made at home, hands down, vegan or otherwise!!!

TOPPINGS IDEA #1:

Soyrizo, red onion, spinach, tomato, black olives, crimini mushrooms.

When almost finished baking brush crust with melted vegan butter & garlic powder.

After baking add avocado.

Ok….This stuff is PHENOMENAL!!!!! I love recipes like this because it makes it so simple to not miss the “real” thing. This dip is creamy, velvety, cheesy and you’d never guess that the main ingredient is eggplant. Yup. EGGPLANT! This also means that there are only about 55 calories per serving. Now that is a dip I’ll really enjoy eating!!! It also reheats really well so you can keep the leftovers in the fridge for several days 🙂

Vegan Parmesan Cheese

One of the things I miss most since cutting out (moooost of the time) dairy is CHEESE!!! I absolutely love cheese. All cheese, any cheese. White cheese, blue cheese, hard cheese, soft cheese!!!

Ok. Cheese-love rant over. 🙂

I would have NEVER thought just 4 simple ingredients together would yield something that tastes JUST LIKE one of my much-lobed cheeses: Parmesan. And it takes just about 1 full minute to make and will keep in the fridge for a 2-3 weeks, easily!!
