Vegan French Onion Soup the Easy Way

This is an easy recipe but it is not terribly filling so be warned, this will not suffice as a whole meal on its own. It's good though. I don't have the right kind of oven friendly bowls for this so the recipe is modified to not require them. Makes 2...

Matcha powder is not easy to come by. It is pretty rare and very expensive but I got lucky at the Chinese grocery store across the street and found a bag for $5. I doubt it is "authentic" but it tastes good so I don't care. A milk frother is required...

Fantastically Filling Taco Salad

I love taco salad but it doesn't feel worth eating if I am going to be hungry still after I finish the meal. No problem with that in this recipe. It's packed with beans and tofu. My non-vegan husband really likes this meal so I make it a lot. Serves...
