We still have leftover summer squash, and it remains fresh! But it doesn’t stay that way forever, and we knew we needed to come up with a new recipe, stat.
Summer squash grows like crazy, and sometimes you’re stuck with more of these vegetables than you know what to do with! Quite a conundrum! What’s a savvy vegan and gluten-free chef to do?
We recently acquired a large pile of red bell peppers, and wondered what we might possibly do with them (other than makes dozens of stir-fries). Fortunately, we discovered a sensational curry recipe.
We recently found ourselves with four ears of corn and no plan for their consumption. Fortunately, we discovered (and modified) a recipe for vegan, gluten-free corn fritters.
We won’t judge you for devouring these muffins in one day, we promise! Our vegan, gluten-free chocolate and banana muffin recipe will help you create a tin of delectable confections that’ll be impossible to resist.
If you have kids (or a spouse!) who balk at the idea of eating broccoli, feed them this simple, but rich side dish and watch them change their minds.
It might still be snowing where you live, but the weather is already hot in our area! Since the heat makes us think of cold desserts, we started having visions of pecan pie.
We still had a few tomatoes left over from our neighbor’s recent gift, as well as a small pile of fresh zucchini. These two vegetables are divine baked together.
Recently, a neighbor bestowed a box of tomatoes upon us as a gift. We live in a warmer part of the country, so tomatoes are already ripening here. However, there may well be snow in the ground in your region. The weather is crazy and quite varied at this time of year!
These are not your mother’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! (sorry, Mom). Our vegan, gluten-free treat is scrumptious, sweet, and nourishing, without the use of butter or other animal products.
Has this ever happened to you? You check your cupboards for pancake mix, only to discover that you’ve run out. You’re still in your pajamas, so you don’t want to go to the store. There’s no reason to despair, however, because you can easily make your own vegan, gluten-free pancakes with surprisingly few ingredients. No need for store-bought mix!
If you have a couple of extra potatoes and an onion, some shallots and a bit of gluten-free flour, you can make one of the simplest, yet most delicious meals ever. We absolutely love potato pancakes! Their robust simplicity thrills our palates.
Most of the gingerbread we ate during the holidays tended to be kind of dry and stale. This is a shame, because gingerbread cookies, cooked properly, are simply awesome.
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.
Warm Your Insides With Vegan, Gluten-Free Cream of Potato and Broccoli Soup – Stove Top and Instant Pot
We don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it’s cold and gloomy here. The skies are pitch-black by 5:00 PM, and we do whatever we can to stay warm. Nothing soothes you more on a cold December evening than a bowl of creamy potato/broccoli soup. The texture is like manna for the throat, and the robust, yet delicate flavor comforts as it fills you up. Invite some friends over for a soup party! Everyone will rave about this delicious meal.
You’re going to flip your lid when you bite into one of these moist, tasty apple cupcakes. They contain both applesauce and grated apples, so they’re ultra-dense and rich. Grocery stores carry a variety of different vegan cream cheese products, but our go-to favorite is Kite Hill. It’s a bit spendy compared to other brands, but worth every penny. These muffins are perfect for the holidays, since they contain cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Heavenly!
Brrrrrr! It’s getting cold outside, and we’re craving comfort food! Shepherd’s Pie is an excellent meal for these chilly nights. It’s packed full of lentils and potatoes, combined with mushrooms and spinach, and served on top of gluten-free breadcrumbs. We made this hearty offering as a main dish for our recent Thanksgiving dinner, but it’s also perfect for the December holidays. You’ll feel pleasantly full in no time, ready to brave the cold winds.
Thanksgiving is barely behind us, and we’re already thinking about all the cookies we’re going to eat in December. Really, is it even the holiday season without cookies? It’s the time of year when you’re most tempted to stray from a vegan, gluten-free diet, because most of the offered desserts are packed with dairy and wheat. Still, there is no reason why you should miss out on the fun, just because you’re trying hard to be healthy. These cookies aren’t exactly a diet food, but they are vegan, gluten-free, and delicious!
You’re faced with a dilemma: you want to eat an elegant international meal, but you don’t have much time and/or cash on hand. What’s a hungry gourmet to do? The answer is simple — whip up a platter of our Pepper, Peanut, and Potato Sabzi! Though it looks deceptively like a simple, stir-fried dish of potatoes and peppers, once you experienced your first bite, you’ll know there is something special going on. The exotic flavor comes from the addition of cumin and fennel seeds, spices that are popular staples in Indian cuisine. The peanuts add protein, and the potatoes are hearty and filling. Just perfect for these chilly autumn nights!
There’s no dessert quite like cheesecake. Smooth, creamy, sweet, decadent — what’s not to love? However, most of the cheesecakes you encounter in restaurants and coffee shops are made with tons of dairy and gluten. Since we love this delectable confection so much, we decided to make our own, using plant-based ingredients. The filling utilizes cashews and coconut milk, blended to perfection. Stunned by our stellar results, we decided to share the secret with you. You can thank us later.
