Crunchy & Spicy Baked Tofu Nuggets

Crunchy & Spicy Baked Tofu Nuggets // wishfulchef.com

Unfortunately I haven’t been eating the healthiest lately. It must be from the weather getting colder and I’ve been craving Fall comfort food. To get back on track, these veggie nuggets are one of the recipes I experimented with using Mori-Nu Tofu, a silken tofu that’s a smooth, delicate variety of tofu. It’s never pressed or drained so the texture is very creamy and custard-like. Tofu is low in fat, gluten-free and a good source of protein so it’s perfect as an appetizer or side dish.

Healthier Chocolate Pecan Pie

Healthier Chocolate Pecan Pie // wishfulchef.com
When we visit my family in Pennsylvania, sometimes we stop by the Amish store to pick up a few of their baked goods. One time we got a freshly baked pecan pie and wow, it was AMAZING. We finished it that night and it instantly became my husband’s favorite pie. I searched for recipes but realized most pecan pies are made with a TON of sugar. My recipe is definitely on the healthier side, however, I still used more sugar than I typically do. But I mean c’mon, we can indulge a little once in a while right??

Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers

Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers // wishfulchef.com
It’s that time of year again to crank out the charcoal! My husband and I are enjoying our new garden space and have been grilling with friends every weekend. My friend Diana and I experimented with different ingredients to put on the grill like Lacinato kale and even Asian dumplings! The dumplings didn’t turn out too well but the kale tasted delicious, I highly recommend it. This new burger recipe was an idea I thought of because we were eating way too much meat. I wanted something light, but still really wanted to eat a burger! It’s great for your vegetarian friends and also an incredibly simple and healthier alternative to a filling meaty burger.

Here is my healthy version made with Greek yogurt which makes them so deliciously creamy. Enjoy!
