RECIPES:

Broccoli Cheese Soup:
1/2 small white onion, diced
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 1/2 cups broccoli, chopped into bite-size pieces
1 tbsp oil or vegan butter for cooking onion & carrots
2 tbsp vegan butter
3 tbsp flour – all purpose or brown rice flour (gluten free) work
1 1/2 cups almond or other non-dairy milk
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 cup vegan cheddar shreds or 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Heat pot on medium. Add oil and saute onions and carrots for 5 minutes until onions are translucent. Put into a bowl and set aside. Add vegan butter to the pot and wait for it to melt. Add the flour and whisk to combine into a paste. Slowly add the almond milk a little bit at a time, whisking so it stays a smooth consistency. Keep whisking on the heat until it thickens. Then add the vegetable stock and veggies including the broccoli and the spices. Simmer on low heat for 20 mins. Add the cheese and stir until it melts. Serve hot with bread on the side or put it in a thermos to take for lunch!

Wrap (makes 2 wraps)
Tahini Sauce:
2 tbsp tahini or peanut butter
2 tbsp coconut milk
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp maple syrup or sugar
1 tbsp warm water

1 medium sweet potato, cooked and mashed (use 1/2 for each wrap)
1/2 cup dry quinoa + 1 cup water (cook this according to the package directions)
greens
2 whole wheat wraps

Stir sauce ingredients together. Add 1 tbsp extra warm water if it is too thick. Assemble the wraps, mashing 1/2 of the sweet potato onto each.

Overnight Oats
1/3 cup dry oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
2/3 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk

  1. Mmm I made the soup last night, and it was SO GOOD! Next time, I’ll do a little less onion and broth. I’d even recommend steaming the carrots & broccoli beforehand to make it break apart easier into the soup!

  2. Hey Liv! Tried your sweet potato wrap with the dressing & love it! (2nd day in a row ☺️) Looking forward to having the veggie bow tie soup for dinner today. Thanks for the easy, great ideas- slowly transitioning to a vegan lifestyle & can’t thank you enough for the inspiration ❤️️

  3. I have been watching your videos nonstop since I discovered your channel a few days ago! I have been vegan (with some slip ups) for 3 months now and your recipes are THE BEST!!!! I just had a question for you. I cannot for the life of me find a definite answer on whether or not tofu or soy products are bad for you….I have been avoiding them as much as possible and I’m not sure if that’s necessary, but even just your personal experience or knowledge of it would help me. Thanks!
