I came across this recipe for vegan quiche during my recent visit to Whole Foods. I love a good quiche and just had to share with all my Meatless Mondays readers. This is a great addition to your summer brunch menu, and you can always freeze leftovers for Monday’s lunch or supper.
Share your pics of this recipe with us on Twitter by using hashtag #MeatlesswithNUBIA. I would love to know if you try other ingredients or variations to make it great!
Why am I surprised that Mother’s Day is the second highest gift giving holiday in the US (right behind Christmas)? I mean, it’s not like we expect some special treatment for growing human beings in our tiny uteruses. Right.
Well, now that we’re only 2 shopping days away from May 10th, I figure it’s a good idea to drop some helpful hints and tips about what we absolutely do not want for Mother’s Day.
While every other website is running slideshows of fabulous gift ideas for mothers of all manner and form, I just want to make it even easier.
The stuff that I’m about to mention, don’t get them. If you’re still clueless about what to get, it’s too late to try and figure it out. Gift cards and dinner reservations will work like a charm.
Here are my top 5 worst Mother’s Day ideas ever:
I was recently introduced to Quinoa (say: keen-wah), and I must say I am in love!! A quick background on Quinoa — it is usually considered to be a whole grain, however it’s actually a seed. Quinoa is a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium and fiber. It looks like couscous and is as versatile as rice and barley. The rich, nutty flavor also makes it a great breakfast dish!
This Quinoa and Black Bean Salad is ideal for dinner or lunch as it can be served hot or cold. My family is Jamaican so we love spicy dishes, but you can choose to just add a pinch or skip the cayenne pepper altogether.
I think I’m going to get a little Quinoa-obsessed so expect some experimental recipes to follow in the coming weeks. Let me know if you have any Quinoa recipes that you would like to share.
We are obsessed with the DIY Network and just got insider info that they’re having an extended casting call right now in ATL!
If you think your family room is totally dysfunctional and in desperate need of a makeover, here’s your chance. The DIY Network is looking for families who want to transform living spaces such as dens, dining rooms, living rooms or enclosed patios.
They’ve extended the deadline to April 27th, and you’ll have to send an email to FixMyFamilyRoom@gmail.com with the following info…
I’m really loving all these delicious Meatless Monday recipes from Tammi, and I hope you are too. I went 18 years without eating red meat but never had a complete vegan meal. So when NUBIAMAG decided to take on this Meatless Monday challenge, it certainly forced me to get more creative in the kitchen.
Because I’m a Jamaican who grew up in the United States, I’m always taking traditional Jamaican dishes or ingredients and combing them with American foods. Naturally, one of my go-to websites for recipes is Jamaicans.com, and I recently found this healthy pizza recipe that will surely be a hit with the kids and hubby.
Maybe it’s my current obsession with Pinterest or my recent move to the South, but lately I’ve been inspired to take on some serious do-it-yourself projects.
Although I’m naturally creative and can do anything from crocheting to painting, I’ve always lacked the patience for DIY stuff. Nowadays, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s are my new favorite stores!
My first project took only 30 minutes, and it brightens my spirit every time I get home. Check out this beautiful spring wreath that I made last week (for under $20 btw) and follow these easy steps to create your own…
Winter had us all locked up inside and tied to our treadmills, but not anymore!! Spring is here, and it’s time to take our running back outdoors. Running on a treadmill is very different from running on the rough and rugged terrain. It’s just more challenging and, in my opinion, a better workout. If you’re new to running or just trying to get back into the habit of running outside, here are a few tips that will help you get into the swing of things.
This is not only a good excuse to go shopping, but you need the right clothes and shoes for running out doors. Research has shown that you should change out your running shoes after approximately 300 to 500 miles from the first wear. Roughly guessing, that would be about six months if you’re running three miles a day or fifteen plus miles a week. Having the right cushion and support in your running shoes is necessary as this protects you from injuries associated with running outdoors.
This one-pot, vegetarian paella is not only the perfect dinner idea after a long day (which seems like every Monday btw), but it’s also a hearty main dish option for a meatless Easter brunch. This recipe will have your vegan guests cheering you on and your meat lovers begging for seconds!

This dish makes a great side for either dinner or lunch, but it’s also a very filling main dish if you’re going vegan. And who wouldn’t love a Meatless Monday Meal that can be served as two meals and satisfy your cravings? I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com and tweaked it by adding grated Parmesan to each serving.

The first time I had tofu was at a company dinner. The clients we were hosting were vegan, so I had the task of finding a restaurant that would impress both my clients and meat loving colleagues.
I found a popular Chinese restaurant that offered a well-rounded vegan menu and to make a long story short, I was instantly hooked on their sweet and sour tofu from that day on.
Tofu is such a versatile ingredient and easily absorbs the flavor of whatever spices or seasoning you add to your meal. This Tofu with Tropical Fruit Sauce is my go to favorite, and it’s so yummy.
