Vegan Recipes I'm Loving

Hey Brave Ones!  Hope you are all having a FANTASTIC start to 2015!  I know I am!  I wanted to get back here and share with you some amazing vegan recipes that ANY non-vegan would enjoy!  Oh, did I not mention that?  Ha.  Yes.  As of the new year, I have become a vegan.  "But Haley, why would you do that?"  Oh, I shall explain lovelies... later. 

For now, I just want to share some of the tasty things I've been eating!

Black Bean Tacos w/ Avo Cilantro-Lime Sauce: These are STUPID easy!  And STUPID delicious.  I combined the black beans with a can of Rotel instead of salsa.  The trick with the beans is to heat them up first and they'll smoosh easier. (that's my technical term)

Toasted Cilantro Rice: This stuff is fantastic!  Rice can be tricky to make interesting.  But this stuff is packed with flavor and texture!  Serve it along side seasoned black beans and baked sweet taters: holy yum!

Apple Ginger Cake: This was actually a recipe that I found from a cutie on YouTube!  This apple bread? To die for.  So good, especially warm.  I'll be making this into muffins for my swim team meeting this weekend. 

Low Fat Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies:  You'd never know these don't have butter in them.  There's only a little sugar too!  I used 2 Tbsp of stevia and 4 Tbsp of turbinado sugar.  (Naturally Yours was out of xylitol and I couldn't find coconut sugar) I used walnuts and mini vegan chocolate chips.  I also had to bake them a little longer.  So chewy and tasty! 

One Pan Mexican Quinoa: This is my I-Have-No-Time-to-Cook recipe.  Throw everything in a pan and let it make magic.  So flavorful and filling!  I'd count this one as a crowd pleaser!
