It already feels like autumn where we live, and we’re craving warmer, heartier foods. Of course, sweet desserts are delicious any time of the year.

You’ll keep going back to the pan for this dessert — again, and again and again. Try your hardest not to devour the entire thing!

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.

Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Rice Pudding

This mouthwatering creamy Instant Pot gluten-free vegan rice pudding is smooth and sweet with only a handful of ingredients! Feel free to use almond, hemp, or dairy-free milk of choice. 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.

Baba Ghanoush — Naturally Vegan, and a Cinch to Prepare!

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.

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.

We’ve been eating falafels for years, both with pita bread, and without. These crispy disks are delicious served with a variety of vegetables.

Creating this naturally vegan, gluten-free concoction from scratch is surprisingly easy and fun.
