Cranberry Glazed Tofu & Homemade Cranberry Sauce

  Thanksgiving is coming up this week! I feel very unprepared because I do not yet know if I will be in town or traveling (crazy, right?).

This is a good alternative, along with some side traditional dishes, such as mashed potatoes, stuffing,…

Asian Quinoa Salad

This week’s meal plan included an easy quinoa salad. This meal doesn’t use too many ingredients (I have most of them in my house as staples) and was pretty quick to put together. This dish keeps well and tasted almost even better the next day as leftovers because the flavors had time to infuse together! Asian Quinoa Salad Ingredients: 1 cup quinoa 2 cups vegetable broth (or water) 1 cup red cabbage (I used pre-cut) 1 cup  Edamame (I defrosted frozen edamame) 1 bell pepper, chopped…
