Roasted Eggplant Vegetarian Chili

We have some amazing friends (Emily & Tony) who made us a fantastic Vegan chili when we visited them for the holidays.  We decided to make this chili for my parents on Christmas Day and it was a hit.  YUM!

Mom's Plant-Based Pumpkin Bread

It's been awfully quiet on the Plant Based Happiness Blog this month.  I've been consumed with Christmas prep - the shopping, the wrapping, the decorating, the baking, gathering of friends and loved ones, etc.  Here's a recipe that I've been experimenting with and I believe I've finally perfected it.

Beauty is only skin deep, or is it?

I learned of an extremely informative website while watching a documentary about breast cancer research last weekend.

Did you know?
  • More than 500 products sold in the U.S. contain ingredients banned in cosmetics in Japan, Canada or the European Union (EWG 2007b).
  • Nearly 100 products contain ingredients considered unsafe by the International Fragrance Association (EWG 2007c).

Arugula Flatbread

I never expected Josh to be so enthusiastic about this dinner...I honestly wasn't so sure myself.  It is amazing how sometimes the simplest ingredients can make the most amazing flavor combination.  Looks like this will become one of our new favorite recipes.  It seriously took all of 5 minutes to throw together - delicious and fast - you can't beat that!

Best, Most Simple Vinaigrette Recipe!

With the Christmas Season upon us, I've been eating homemade salads everyday to avoid those unwanted holiday pounds.  This vinaigrette recipe comes from my Mom's Italian Winter Salad Recipe and it is delish.  I swear, I could drink it!

Boycott these brands!

I'm re-posting some information I received via email from the Organic Consumers Association...  

Mediterranean food is amazing!

Couldn't resist posting my plant-based lunch from Mediterranean Deli. That place is so amazing - it's definitely one of my Top 5 favorite restaurants in our area! They have tons of Vegan options.

 This is what I ordered from the top clockwise: Mujaddara, Pita Bread, Jerusalem Salad with tahini dressing, Ful Mudammas and Sauteed Eggplant, ... Mmmmmm!
