Easy Tofu Pad Thai

Pad Thai is one of our FAVORITE takeout dishes. It’s on weekly repeat around here!

We’ve shared an incredible Noodle-Free Pad Thai in the past, but sometimes it’s nice to have the filling, noodle-y goodness that comes with a more classic version of the dish.

This simple plant-based version of Pad Thai takes just 30-minutes to prepare and delivers a hefty helping of flavor. Let’s do this!

Flavored Protein Powder Review

Flavored Protein Powder Review

Since you’ve enjoyed our Vanilla & Chocolate protein powder reviews so much, we decided to round out the collection with a review of flavored plant-based protein powders!

Similar to our prior reviews, we did a formal, side-by-side review of some of the most popular plant-based protein powders on the market. We chose flavors that we thought sounded delicious! Our goal was to see which protein powders delivered on taste and nutrition, and which ones weren’t worth the hype (to save you the time and money of doing your own research).

5-Ingredient Vegetarian Fish Sauce

5-Ingredient Vegetarian Fish Sauce

Have you ever tasted fish sauce? We don’t recommend it! But stick with us…

Fish sauce is a popular Asian condiment that imparts a salty, robust, ocean flavor that can make a great dish taste even better! It is commonly used to add depth of flavor and saltiness to dishes such as ramen, stir fries, marinades, dipping sauces, and more.

While coconut aminos can make a close plant-based substitution, sometimes you just need that extra “fishy” flavor to send a dish over the edge.

Lemony Arugula Salad with Crispy Shallot

Lemony Arugula Salad with Crispy Shallot

The first time we tasted crispy shallots in a salad, we knew we’d hit the jackpot. These crunchy, salty bits of deliciousness have become one of our favorite ways to impress dinner guests (even the salad non-believers).

Crispy shallots first debuted in our Roasted Squash Salad recipe and made their second appearance in our recipe for Roasted Stuffed Butternut Squash.

And now they’re back in this simple 30-minute, 8-ingredient salad recipe.
