HEALTHY NO OIL CRISPY ROASTED POTATOES
It’s not Thanksgiving without Crispy Roasted Potatoes! This is an incredibly popular recipe on my blog because they contain no oil but taste just as good as the regular oily version!

My take on the great Greek spinach and feta pie! Featuring shatteringly crisp phyllo pastry, and a soft, salty, feta-cheesy, spinachy filling, all baked up to golden perfection. Comfort food at it’s finest.
Who says vegans can’t have a Pot Roast? This one’s got all kinds of good things going on! It includes instructions for cooking in an Instant Pot or on the stove-top/oven.
Tender, juicy, meaty portobello mushroom, stuffed with sweet caramelized onions, a sprinkling of thyme, all topped with buttery, crisp pastry. They are the easiest Vegan Mushroom Pies to make EVER and you can even make them in advance!
