Our baked pumpkin custard is super easy to make, has an incredible silky texture, and of course is both gluten-free and vegan! You can serve it plain, or dress it up with vegan whipped topping or vanilla ice cream; sometimes we even top it with some of our Super-Easy, Super-Awesome Homemade Fresh Cranberry Sauce, it’s super yummy!
This dish has a decidedly southwestern flavor owing to the combination of pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, and green chili. It’s delicious, and so good for you! We use soy curls to make this, but you can also use cubed tofu. You can either cook this on the stove top, or in a slow cooker (if you have an Instant Pot you can use the slow cook function on it).
Whether you call it nougat, Torrone, nogat, or something else, it’s rarely vegan, being, as it is, made with egg whites and honey. Until now. Our vegan soft nougat recipe is going to make you and your tastebuds so happy! And the best thing about it is that it is infinitely customizable! The vegan nougat that we made and that is featured in our picture is pistachio chocolate swirl nougat, but really the sky’s the limit! Traditional nougat has almonds and sometimes a bit of flavoring like lavender or orange essence. Here’s our easy, completely vegan soft nougat recipe!
Our vegan copycat Lil Smokies cocktail wieners recipe will blow your mind. It is so improbably delicious, and ridiculously easy to make, and uses – wait for it – baby carrots! And yes, it tastes like the “real” thing, only better, with less icky ingredients, and more good karma!
Our vegan copycat oats overnight protein oatmeal recipe (also a copycat for Mush, Ono, and the rest) has all of the protein and other perks of Oats Overnight and Ono, plus several advantages over the little, individual Oats Overnight and other packets that you can order either from their websites or on places like Amazon. And unlike other copycat overnight oats recipes, our recipe is not too powdery or chalky or bulky, has a good oats-to-protein-powder ratio, and, of course, is vegan. Yes, that’s right, we cracked the “how to get 20g of protein into a serving of oatmeal without it gagging you” secret.
Have you ever wished that there could be vegan pill pockets for your dog? Of course none of the commercially available pill pockets are vegan, so we are going to give you a simple recipe to make your own, and, as a bonus, a pointer to an alternative that you can buy and use if you don’t want to make your own (for example if you only need to give your dog a few pills, not a daily pill).
Our gluten-free, vegan lentil walnut burgers are easy to make, and baked in the oven! (Of course you can also fry them if you prefer.) Plus they are made from all shelf-stable ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry, so that you can whip them up whenever you want. And they hold together beautifully, so you can have no fear that they will crumble when you bite into them. Serve them on a bun, or a bed of greens (as we did here), or any way that you like!
Our gluten-free vegan coconut macadamia pineapple cookie recipe has a lovely shortbread texture, and a delicious light tropical flavor! Made with brown rice flour, unsweetened coconut flakes or shreds, and chopped dried pineapple, the ingredients are simple and clean. The result is a delicious, melt-in-your mouth cookie that you need not feel guilty about making, eating, and serving to your family!
Our vegan ham slices recipe is our best gluten-free vegan lunch meat recipe yet! (Although we have to say that our gluten-free vegan roast beef lunch meat recipe is pretty great too!) It’s also really easy to make, has good ingredients, and stores well in the refrigerator. Pair it with our super-easy, no yeast, gluten-free vegan bread, and you have a perfect gluten-free, vegan sandwich!
You are not going to believe how easy, delicious, and fast our 2-ingredient vegan tomato cream sauce recipe is! Of course, we use this vegan tomato cream sauce for pasta (we love it with the Costco Banza chickpea pasta) but you can use it for whatever you’d like. Smother a vegan meatloaf in it, make it the basis for an extra special, creamy vegan lasagna, or even use it as a soup base! Want to make a vegan version of the famous vodka tomato sauce? No problem, just change this to a 3-ingredient tomato cream sauce by adding some vodka (we include instructions for that as well). To quote a certain popular 70s and 80s band, “Any way you want it…”.
No-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies are a classic recipe, but of course most recipes for them aren’t vegan, as the traditional no-bake oatmeal cookies contain both milk and butter. Now we have veganized them, and made them even yummier and better for you by using raw cacao instead of cocoa, and so we have turned these wonderful (and fast and easy) treats into gluten-free and vegan no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies!
Ready to have your mind blown? This incredible vegan fried chicken recipe is the best you have ever had, guaranteed! Not only is the flavor right, but the texture and the overall look and feel are right too! Also, we want to warn you that the ingredients and directions make this recipe look much more complicated than it really is. Once you have made this once, you’ll breeze through it the next time (and trust us, there will be a next time :~) ). And the ingredients are simple because it’s made from tofu (and nobody will ever know, unless you tell them)!
Why does Instant Pot food burn? What would cause the Instant Pot food burn error indicator to come on? There are several reasons that your Instant Pot may display “burn”, fortunately they are all easily remedied. Vegan food, like any other food, can burn in an Instant Pot under certain conditions. Of course, the reasons that your food may burn in your Instant Pot, and the remedies, don’t just apply to vegan food, they apply to any food that ends up displaying the ‘burn’ message in your Instant Pot.
Whether you spell it ‘yogurt’ or ‘yoghurt’, you’ll love this homemade almond milk and almond milk yogurt recipe which has no fuss, no complicated instructions, no other ingredients – just easy homemade almond milk and starter (such as a little yogurt). You can make this in the Instant Pot, and if you don’t have an Instant Pot, we include alternative methods.
Did you know that the Instant Pot is awesome for vegans, and even for gluten-free vegans? (In fact check out our Instant Pot vegan recipes!) If you have an Instant Pot languishing, barely used on your counter, or maybe even hidden away unused in a closet, this is the Instant Pot quick start guide for you! In fact this is the Instant Pot quick start guide that we wish had come with our Instant Pot. We LOVE our Instant Pot, but we will be the first to admit that it can be a little daunting getting comfortable with it at first, and it can feel like it has a pretty steep learning curve. So if you are feeling a little intimidated by your new Instant Pot, you’re not alone! Read our quick start guide and we promise that you will feel much more comfortable (dare we even say “competent”) with your Instant Pot!
We did it! Building on the blender bread craze, we created the holy grail of breads: easy gluten-free vegan white bread! How easy is it? You throw all of the ingredients in a blender (hence the term “blender bread”), blend it, then pour the batter into your loaf pans! That’s how easy it is! And you get honest-to-goodness gluten-free white bread!
After perfecting our gluten-free vegan bread (no yeast, either!), we were hankering for some rye bread, and we figured out that our basic bread recipe was hearty enough to masquerade as rye bread if we just added some caraway seeds. But then we also started craving some sourdough bread but without, you know, both the hassle of keeping a sourdough starter alive, not to mention trying to make it gluten-free. And that’s when we realized that our magic secret ingredient could do the trick!
