    Delectable Butternut Squash and Black Bean Tacos With Vegan Cream Cheese/Jalapeno/Avocado Topping
    Sometimes it's hard to know exactly how to cook butternut squash. Sure, you can bake it, but what else can a person do? We recently discovered a butternut squash-based taco recipe that is so delicious we're still salivating over our meal, hours later. The addition of whipped vegan cream cheese with avocado and fresh jalapeno makes this dish a total winner. And it's so easy to make! The hardest part is cutting the skins off the squash. But persevere with the task, because the end result will be worth it.

    The Best Pumpkin Cheesecake You’ve Had in Your Life Just Happens to be Vegan and Gluten-Free!
    There's no dessert quite like cheesecake. Smooth, creamy, sweet, decadent -- what's not to love?

Stunned by our stellar results, we decided to share the secret with you. You can thank us later.

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Lemon Pepper Rice with Black Sesame Seeds
    This bright Instant Pot gluten-free vegan lemon pepper rice has a beautiful blend of tart lemon juice, spicy fresh black pepper, and earthy black sesame seeds. The final additions of dried garlic flakes and black sesame really make a difference - white sesame can be used instead, but they are a little more waxy and lack the depth of flavor of the black seeds. This dish goes well with stir fries and fresh salads!

    Vegan, Gluten-Free Pasta Puttanesca is Spicy, Hearty, and Delicious
    Autumn is well underway, and our desire to devour pasta dishes continues in earnest. Pasta puttanesca is a traditional Italian dish that tastes great, even without the addition of anchovies. It's hearty, filling, delicious, and so easy to make. Though most pasta puttanesca recipes utilize thin spaghetti noodles, we had some dried, gluten-free fettucine noodles in our kitchen and decided to use those instead. We were delighted by the results. You don't need many ingredients to make this wonderful meal. It's super inexpensive! In fact, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cabinet or refrigerator already.

    This warm and hearty Instant Pot gluten-free vegan Cajun split pea soup is perfect for colder autumn days and winter nights. The Cajun seasoning in this recipe has paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne, and oregano - but many Cajun seasonings have their own distinct twists.

    Vegan, Gluten-Free Italian Fettucine is So Easy to Make!
    One of the things we missed the most after we decided to pursue a vegan, gluten-free diet was Italian food. The cuisine is hearty and delicious, but most restaurants serve it with huge dollops of cheese (not to mention pasta made from whole wheat flour and eggs). What's an Italian food lover to do? Fortunately, October happens to be mushroom season where we live. Chanterelles were on sale at our local supermarket for an insanely low price, and we had a brainstorm. After some deliberation, we were able to whip up this simple, but elegant dish. It's inexpensive, a cinch to prepare, and will fill you up on a chilly autumnal evening.

    This super quick Instant Pot gluten-free vegan Blueberry Oatmeal is an easy breakfast for busy mornings. Top with crunchy nuts, brown sugar, extra cinnamon, and even more fresh blueberries at the end for a yummy complementary combination. Steel cut oats are a little chewier and take longer to cook than quick cooking or traditional oats. You can substitute a plant milk like hemp for the almond milk, but the nut milks go really well with the slivered almond toppings.

    Eat Hearty With Our Vegan, Gluten-Free German Potato Salad (Stovetop and Instant Pot Recipe Included!)
    Fall is coming on strong! We don't know about you, but we're craving some carbs! It's best to stick to the healthy kind, like organic potatoes. Recently, we found ourselves with a small sack of red potatoes -- don't ask how THAT happened -- and wanted to do something fancier than just boiling them and slathering some Earth Balance over the top. So we modified a German potato salad recipe, substituting tempeh bacon for the animal variety, and were wowed by the results! We found smoky bacon tempeh at the supermarket, and found that it imparted the delicious flavor that is so essential to German potato salad.

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Tomato Bean Soup
    This yummy and hearty Instant Pot gluten-free vegan tomato bean soup is satisfying and perfect for autumn and colder days. The basic background of pinto beans and potatoes allows for the tomatoey flavor to really shine through. This recipe makes a rather liquidy soup, so cut down on the vegetable broth if you wish to have something thicker and more stew-like. You can also blend it for a few seconds with an immersion blender to achieve a creamier texture - but not too long, you are just trying to thicken it a bit, not make it smooth!

    Celebrate Cooler Temperatures With Vegan, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie
    It's already fall where we live, and our thoughts naturally turn to pumpkin treats. And what is more autumnal than pumpkin pie? Normally, this cool weather delicacy is made with eggs and condensed milk, but our vegan, gluten-free version calls for unsweetened almond milk and cornstarch (or arrowroot powder). The texture is more jiggly than a traditional pumpkin pie, but our version still tastes great and goes down smooth!

    This Instant Pot gluten-free vegan garlic millet rice pilaf is full of texture and flavor. The millet adds both nutrient value with protein and fiber, but also a fun textural component to the rice with the round shape. The fresh and powdered garlic really kicks up the garlic flavor in this dish. Millet is a seed, not a grain, so the release time at the end is a timed natural release to allow for the seeds to soften up just a touch more without cooking too much.

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Cinnamon Applesauce – Vegan AIP Friendly!

Choose apples that are in season for the best flavor, and feel free to mix up the types of apples for unique combinations. Add in a little agave if you have apples that might not be as flavorful, on-season, or if the apples are more tart, like Granny Smith green apples. More often than not, though, the apples are so sweet on their own that you don’t need any additional sweeteners!

A courser vegetable chop has wonderful texture and a great handmade flair, and is a prettier garnish.

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Lemon Brussels Sprouts with Slivered Almonds (and Easy to Make Vegan AIP Friendly)
    This yummy vegetable dish is quick and easy to put together. The brightness of the lemon flavor is extremely tasty with the toasted almonds! A great summer side dish of green vegetables with a satisfying crunch. Feel free to substitute toasted pine nuts in place of the almonds, as they also can add a nutty, creamy flavor to the overall dish. Avocado oil is a tasty oil with a high smoking point and healthy fats. There are a number of good reasons to include avocado oil when eating vegetables - it may increase the absorption of antioxidants and nutrients as well as being naturally anti-inflammatory! If you don’t have any on hand, olive oil also works well as a substitute.

The potatoes make the soup creamy without any extra nut or plant milks. White pepper is used instead of black to allow for the green color to shine, but black pepper also works well. Top with crunchy tortilla strips, dairy-free yogurt or sour cream, pine nuts, or even sunflower seeds for a nice salty, crunchy garnish. Olive oil can be used in place of avocado oil, but the latter provides a nice buttery flavor.

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Apple Cinnamon Pecan Oatmeal
    This delectable Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Apple Cinnamon Pecan Oatmeal is warm with delicious spices that will brighten up the start of your day. This recipe uses steel cut oats, which have more fiber and an amazing slightly crunchy texture. Quick cooking and old-fashioned oats are not the same, and will cook differently - if you choose one of these the time needs to be decreased. The steel cut “groats” are chewier and take longer to cook.

The nuttier milks add a subtle additional flavor, and coconut milk isn’t recommended as it is too thick for the final dish. Cinnamon powder is optional, but highly recommended! Depending on the toppings you select, the vanilla alone is a great base. Make this rice pudding more traditional with regular or golden raisins soaked in rum, or opt for a handful of other toppings that provide more crunch.

    Dijon-Marinated Wax Bean and Cucumber Salad is a Summer Winner!
    What happened? It's already the end of the summer -- the time when we often have a lot of vegetables left over from our numerous trips to farmer's markets, co-ops, and supermarkets. Two vegetables that seem ubiquitous are cucumbers and wax beans. Recently, we faced a conundrum -- our refrigerator's crisper was filled to overflowing with cukes and beans. We'd rather perish than waste food, especially fresh veggies! Fortunately, with very little fuss, we were able to whip up this yummy salad. It requires few ingredients, and is cheap and easy to make. On those muggy summer nights when hot food is unappealing, this dish is a winner.

    Instant Pot Gluten-Free Vegan Creamy Mashed Potatoes with Hawaiian Red Salt
    These delicious Instant Pot gluten-free vegan creamy mashed potatoes with Hawaiian Red Salt will be the hit of the party! This recipe uses avocado oil to give it creaminess and buttery flavor. Avocado oil blends better with the potatoes in this amount over coconut oil, as the final mash will taste a little too coconutty unless the oil is very refined. Olive oil is a good substitute, but preferably only if avocado oil isn’t available.

    You've most likely had hummus, but have you tried its sweeter, lighter cousin, baba ghanoush? Baba ghanoush is a lot like hummus, since it has a tahini base. However, instead of adding garbanzo beans, this recipe utilizes roasted eggplant. The result is equally delicious. Our light but zesty meal is easy to make, and perfect for warm summer nights. You can serve it with gluten-free pita bread or with gluten-free toast points sprinkled with thyme, olive oil or vegan butter, and a bit of granulated garlic. We feel confident that you'll love this dish either way.

    Peach Cobbler Tastes Great When It’s Vegan and Gluten-Free!
    Is it even summer without peach cobbler? We don't think so! When temperatures are hot and peaches are ripe, what's an enterprising chef to do? The traditional recipe calls for large amounts of butter and white sugar, but you won't miss the rich taste when you bite into our more subtle, but equally delicious version. This cobbler is inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. You can either peel the peaches or leave the peels on. We made our recipe with peels because that's the way we roll. The peels become soft and pliable during the baking process. Also, they're packed with vitamins, so it seems a shame to just toss them out. You're going to love this recipe. We guarantee it!

    Celebrate Summer With Zesty Vegan Jackfruit Tostadas!
    Sometimes it's hard to know what to do with jackfruit. Like tofu, it doesn't have much taste on its own, and must soak up the flavor of other ingredients. Jackfruit's texture is a bit like pulled pork (but without the gristle), so it's great in tacos and tostadas. Recently, we discovered a recipe for jackfruit tostadas that sacrifices none of the heat or flavor of meat, yet is completely vegan and gluten-free! You'll be delighted by the authenticity of this savory dish. Not to mention the low cost of ingredients, and the ease of cooking!

    Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Lemon Rice Pilaf
    This delightfully bright gluten-free vegan lemon rice pilaf is the perfect summer addition to your meals. Add some grated lemon rind at the finish for an extra lemon flavor - this dish is amazing with grilled vegetables and tahini or vegan stuffed grape leaves. Pine nuts and sliced almonds are great toppings to provide a little crunch and Middle Eastern flavor. You can find pine nuts or pignoles in specialty stores, the nut aisle, or the deli area. Traditional pilaf does have orzo or vermicelli, both of which are not gluten-free - but with the herbs and nuts, you’ll hardly miss it! If you want to add even more texture, try a mix of half brown and white rice.

The Instant Pot makes cooking with soaked chickpeas a breeze - if you’re used to using canned chickpeas don’t let the prep scare you. Soaking and cooking your own chickpeas ends up being healthier and cheaper in the long run! The combination of tomato paste and diced tomatoes really helps round out the flavors and creates a rich tomato taste in every bite. The greens can be kale, chard, mustard, or even mixed! Just make sure to take out the tough core from the greens prior to cooking, with only the tender leaves added to the final step.

    Raw Vegan Gluten-Free Almond Ginger Sushi Rolls
    Almond lovers and growers are rejoicing with news from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that almonds have around 20 percent less calories than previously thought. It seems that food scientists have found that the way we have been measuring calories for over 100 years may not be very precise in cases where the food is both high in both fiber and fat, such as nuts. What scientists found is that, those who consume nuts excrete a higher amount of fat in their waste, which means that our bodies are not actually absorbing all of the fat and calories that are in the nuts.

    National Celiac Awareness Month, Day 22: Vegan, Gluten-Free Feta Cheese
    Today's National Celiac Awareness Month recipe comes to you from Veg News magazine. Veg News magazine, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, is a fantastic monthly magazine that is full of all things vegan and vegetarian. It has everything from recipes and product features, to spotlights on compassionate beauty products and articles all about well-known vegans and vegetarians. This month's issue was devoted to amazing vegan Greek dishes and we were giddy to see a recipe for vegan, gluten-free herbed feta. This mock feta is made from extra-firm tofu and is seasoned with basil and oregano.

    National Celiac Awareness Month, Day 21: Vegan, Gluten-Free Avocado, Orange and Olive Salad Recipe – Can Be Made Vegan AIP Compliant!
    We are so excited for today’s recipe for National Celiac Awareness Day! We found out about, and quickly got our hands on, the I love Trader Joe’s cookbook by Cherie Mercer. It is aptly name because we do love Trader Joe’s. Walking into a Trader Joe’s is like an adult playground; they always have fun and exciting new products that rarely disappoint. Trader Joe’s does a great job of buying for flavor and quality, and their prices are unbelievable. The other thing we love about Trader Joe’s is that they label their food. Whether you're Vegetarian, Vegan and/or Gluten-free, they will let you know which of their products are safe for your diet. We also appreciate that about this new cookbook!

    We can't let National Celiac Awareness Month go by without more dessert recipes and a recipe that is essentially like vegan mounds or almond joy is right up our alley! The response to National Celiac Awareness Month has largely been awesome, but some people still scratch their heads, wondering how a person can eat both vegan *and* gluten-free. It does sound very limiting, which is in partly why we started this site! You can still eat delicious food on a vegan and gluten-free diet and, in fact, it can challenge you to be a more creative cook!

    We thought we’d continue our tribute to beans for National Celiac Awareness Month with a delicious, aromatic Chana Masala. Chana Masala is a dish most popularly known as an Indian dish, but it is also widely served in Pakistan. The main ingredient in Chana Masala is the chick pea, or garbanzo bean. Garbanzo beans are considered a legume and, as their alternative name implies, they are a member of the pea family.

    Today’s recipe for National Celiac Awareness month continues our tribute to beans! Since we covered black beans with yesterday’s recipe, we decided to go to the other end of the spectrum with a white bean. This aromatic dish is pulled from the cookbook Fields of Greens and we can’t top their description of this recipe: “Cannellini beans make their own rich sauce as they slowly simmer in their broth with onions, fruity olive oil, and sage.” Cannellini beans are related to the kidney bean and sometimes referred to as “white kidney beans.”

    National Celiac Awareness Month, Day 15: Vegan, Gluten-Free Warm Black Beans with Chilies and Cilantro
    Beans are an excellent way to celebrate National Celiac Awareness month, so we are devoting the rest of the week to the lovely legume. Beans are a staple in the diet of many vegans and vegetarians because they are packed full of fiber and protein. When we think of beans, often we think of bland or overly-seasoned varieties that come in cans, ready to plop on the barbecue while still in the can. Blech! Beans are much more versatile than that and deserve a ton more credit!

    National Celiac Awareness Month, Day 14: Vegan, Gluten-Free Grilled Potatoes with Herbs
    We can’t let National Celiac Awareness month pass without paying homage to the potato. Delicious and filling, this root is a staple on many dinner tables and we can see why - their versatility is amazing! A recent study completed by nutritionist Sigrid Gibson on behalf of the Potato Council found that potatoes are chock full of fiber, vitamin C and the mineral selenium. What’s more, eating spuds twice a day can lower blood pressure. While we always have to keep a critical mind anytime a study is done on behalf of the interested party, we can’t deny the fact that we are fans of whatever grows out of the ground - Mother Nature knows best!

    This dish sounded like the perfect light summer dinner for those days that are just too hot to eat anything too filling. We are huge fans of stuffed zucchini, and the addition of fresh corn, spicy chilies and creamy vegan cheese adds a sumptuous, robust flavor to this light vegetable. If you want to go really light and leave out the vegan cheese, it will not detract from this dish one bit! You will still experience a savory medley of this seasons gorgeous produce!

    Today’s recipe for National Celiac Awareness Month will warrant a trip to the farmer’s market! Combining fresh asparagus, sugar snap peas, bell peppers and delicious Meyer lemon, this is truly a treat to eat! We got this beautiful recipe from the recipe book we spoke of yesterday, Fields of Greens.

    We thought a fun way to celebrate National Celiac Awareness Month would be to include a delicious drink! While many beverages are gluten-free, they are often made with white sugar, which is usually not vegan. For a little exotic flare, we turned to one of our favorite Brazilian cookbooks, Brazil: A Culinary Journey. This drink, called Alua de Milho in Brazil, is very similar to what we call ginger ale in America. Made with simple ingredients, you can easily cut this recipe in half if you want to make a little less.

We love snacks, and tend to be grazers; grabbing a bit of this and that throughout the day. The problem with grazing is that those calories can add up quickly!

Jalapenos originated in Mexico and we typically see two types in our supermarket produce section: red and green.

    National Celiac Awareness Month Kickoff
    May marks National Celiac Awareness month! This is a month that is near and dear to our hearts as we have many readers who are gluten-free due to celiac disease. Celiac disease is a condition that affects the digestive track and is exacerbated by the consumption of foods containing gluten such as bread, pasta, cookies and cakes. When gluten-containing foods are consumed, the inner surface of the small intestines is damaged and can cause a variety of issues such as diarrhea, gas and bloating.

    Kids’ Week: Delicious Vegan, Gluten-Free Kids’ Drinks
    We are closing out kid’s week here at the Happy Gluten Free Vegan, and we decided to devote today’s post to drinks! Delicious beverages are a great way to give your child a treat outside of water, juice and soy milk. Treating them does not have to mean filling up on sugar and high fructose corn syrup-laden sodas and fruit beverages! Even so-called juices contain surprising ingredients. Next time you are at the supermarket, take a moment to look at the labels on juice bottles; some of the juices that call themselves “natural” are still full of sugar. They often try to make it sound nicer by calling it “pure cane sugar”, but a rose by any other name is still a rose!

    Kid’s Week! Vegan, Gluten-Free Banana-Buckwheat Pancakes
    One of the toughest dietary lifestyles to lead is that of the gluten-free vegan; but perhaps tougher is if it is not you leading that lifestyle, but your child having to do so out of necessity. One of our close friends recently had to switch her child to a dairy-free, gluten free diet due to allergies and is now finding herself having to rethink the entire way she prepares food. While many who are vegan and gluten free by choice were able to make a gradual switch to the diet as they learned more about how to cook within the guidelines, people who suddenly have to switch because of dietary issues with their kids are often left scrambling for diet-appropriate foods that will also be kid-approved.

    Crushed Beetles and Carmine – the Hidden Places Where You May be Consuming it
    Do you love the color pink enough to consume bugs in order to have pink food or drinks? Well Starbucks, and many other food retailers, think the pink is important enough to sneak crushed-up beetles into your consumables for the purpose of, ironically, making them seem more appetizing. That’s right, if you are in love with any of Starbucks strawberry-based drinks, such as the Strawberries and Creme frappuccino and strawberry smoothie, as well as their popular Birthday Cake Pop, mini donuts with icing and Red Velvet Whoopee Pie, you have been consuming bugs.

    With traditional Easter desserts being full of both animal products and gluten, we thought that, instead of trying to conform ingredients to those traditional desserts, we would introduce some fresh ideas to become future traditions. Celebrating the time of year, the current harvests from the earth and appreciating the bounty that the earth has to offer sounds like one of the best ways to honor Easter!

    Why Would Sugar Not Be Vegan or Vegetarian? Here’s Why
    Being vegan or vegetarian is really pretty easy, but there are certain gotchas that you have to watch out for. One of those hidden gotchas is that a lot of sugar - especially white sugar - is not vegan or even vegetarian. (For our purposes, we are using 'vegan' to mean "contains no animal products and no animal had to die for the product to be produced", and 'vegetarian' to mean "no animal had to die for the product to be produced", but may contain animal products such as milk or eggs.) So, back to sugar: what on earth isn't vegetarian or vegan about sugar? Here's what.

If you live near a Whole Foods, you'll be happy to know that some Whole Foods bakeries are now making their own wheat-free raisin bread, and while for some reason they don't advertise it as such, it is vegan, as well.
