Vegan Lasagna

Soooo since I’m on a roll with the vegan recipes, I thought I would try out another one. Honest truth about this one, it takes a looooonnnnng time to make, like I’m talking from start to finish about 3 hours. I did it in stages which I actually think it made it feel longer because I was constantly in the kitchen. However, it was completely worth it, it was absolutely delicious and even tasted like cheese, so much so that my 4 year old said “I really like the cheese” (haha – little did he know it was tofu). If you’ve got the time, check out the recipe here – it’s well worth it, I promise. I added a layer of eggplant to give it that meaty texture. I sliced the eggplant and lightly cooked it in olive oil before putting it in the lasagna.  

Paleo Chocolate Muffins (aka sugar/dairy free muffins)

My husband has decided to try the paleo diet, which is all great, minus the fact that I’m 8 months pregnant and all I want is carbs, carbs and more of them! In all honesty though I am enjoying trying out the recipes and came across this little gem the other day. Paleo Chocolate Muffins INGREDIENTS 2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup) 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup coconut oil – melted 1 tablespoon maple syrup 1/3 cup coconut flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/3 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped (85% cacao and higher) Combine wet ingredients then add the dry ingredients. Place heaping spoonfuls in muffins cups and bake for 20 mins at 350.
