Copycat Chef Babette’s Vegan Enchilada Pie with Polenta and Copycat SIE Sauce

Share some yum!

Looking for the recipe for Chef Babette’s vegan enchilada pie casserole? Here it is! A few years ago Chef Babette appeared on the Steve Harvey show, and demonstrated how to make her vegan enchilada pie (which is really a casserole), which includes a polenta base. Steve and Chef Babette, famous for her Stuff I Eat vegan restaurant, promised viewers that the recipe itself, with ingredients and amounts, could be found on Steve Harvey’s website, however either they were posted and then quickly taken down, or, perhaps due to oversight, never posted at all. We don’t know what happened, but we do know that people have been looking for that recipe ever since. So, we are thrilled to provide you with our copycat version of Chef Babette’s vegan enchilada pie with polenta.

Fabulous Bircher Muesli Recipe – the Original Healthy Overnight Oats Recipe That Doesn’t Have to be Overnight

Share some yum!

Did you know that the healthy overnight oats recipe fad is based on the Bircher muesli recipe which is more than a century old? The whole overnight oats recipe fad seems to have exploded on the scene along with Covid, but back in the 1900 (that’s no typo) Dr. Max Bircher invented the original overnight oats recipe, and called it muesli. Prescribing it for his patients, Birchermüesli, named after the good doctor, or, simply, müesli, became a staple breakfast food; muesli is a derivation of “mus”, which basically translates to “mush”. Dr. Bircher’s muesli was made by – wait for it – soaking rolled oats, and adding some other yummy stuff to it. The original Bircher muesli recipe involved soaking the rolled oats in water overnight, and then mixing them with milk or cream, some nuts, some lemon juice, and then grating an entire fresh apple into the mixture, stirring and eating. The lemon juice was to keep the apple from browning. By the way, it doesn’t even have to soak overnight, in modern times that whole thing is more about the convenience (stick it in the fridge before you go to bed, it’s ready for you in the morning).

Our Version of the Gluten-Free Vegan No-Knead Life-Changing Loaf of Bread (We think it’s the best yet!)

Share some yum!

This is our version of the no-knead “life-changing loaf of bread” recipe, which is the best gluten-free vegan bread recipe if you love dark chewy whole grain seeded bread, like German brown bread (Vollkornbrot) or the Mestemacher brands of bread. It is wonderful on its own, and exquisite dressed up with some vegan cheese, nut butter, or jam. And it’s oh-so-healthful, nutritious and good for you. And, it’s very easy to customize and make your own. So while we think that ours is the best version, feel free to switch out the sliced almonds for some other nut, to change out some of the sunflower seeds for other seeds, etc..

Vegan Gluten-Free Pineapple Upside-Down Cake – Perfect for Picnics and BBQs!

Share some yum!

Our vegan, gluten-free pineapple upside-down cake recipe is the perfect gluten-free pineapple dessert! Many of us have fond memories of sitting outside in the warm sun at a Memorial Day picnic or 4th of July barbecue, digging in to generous helpings of pineapple upside-down cake. Of course, the traditional recipe utilizes all-purpose flour, eggs and milk, but these ingredients aren’t necessary for our delicious version. Our recipe uses fresh pineapple instead of canned (but you can also used canned if you prefer). Colorful pomegranate seeds replace the usual Maraschino cherries but of course you can also use the Maraschino cherries if you want to make it more traditional. We make this pineapple upside-down cake for our own Memorial Day bbq, and people are always delighted by the stellar results!

Not Dogs – Easy Tofu Dogs Vegan Hot Dog Recipe

Our recipe for Not Dogs tofu dogs is our favorite vegan hot dog recipe and, it turns out, our favorite gluten-free vegan hot dogs of all. (But they are not copycat Tofu Pups, because the ingredients are much cleaner.) If you are a regular reader of the Happy Gluten-Free Vegan, you already know that we recently completed our head-to-head review of the three brands of gluten-free vegan hot dogs that are available to purchase in store or online; those are Moving Mountains, Yeah Dawg, and Sweet Earth. Of those three, Sweet Earth was the clear winner for flavor and texture, while Moving Mountains was the clear winner for clean ingredients and being intentionally vegan, and Yeah Dawg was the only one that was intentionally both gluten-free and vegan, but they failed in the flavor and texture department. You know that old saying “if you want something done right you have to do it yourself”? We wanted a gluten-free vegan hot dog that had clean ingredients, good flavor, and good texture. So we decided to create one.

Review of Yeah Dawg Gluten-Free Vegan Hot Dogs

Share some yum!

The third in our series of reviews of gluten-free vegan hot dogs is the Yeah Dawg review. Because all of the hot dogs reviewed in our series are vegan, they are also considered gluten-free veggie hot dogs (or gluten-free vegetarian hot dogs, if you want to be precise). Regardless of what you call them, Yeah Dawg is one of three brands of gluten-free vegan hot dogs available on the market: Yeah Dawg, Sweet Life, and Moving Mountains. Lightlife is not gluten-free, although they are headed in that direction (we have that straight from Lightlife, who cautions that while they are phasing out gluten, there is still stock out on the shelves that contains gluten).
