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

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!

Move Over Coconut Bacon – Gluten-Free Vegan Soy Curl Bacon is in the House!

Our recipe for gluten-free vegan Soy Curl bacon hit us like a bolt out of the blue (only way less painful). Vegan bacon from Soy Curls?? Why the heck not? We had recently posted our wildly popular recipe for Soy Curl pastrami, and so it wasn’t really a stretch to go from pastrami to bacon. Of course vegan bacon is something of a holy grail. There are lots products on the market that call themselves vegan bacon, and even more recipes for vegan bacon, most involving coconut, tempeh, seaweed, and even the aptly named seitan (oh hush, if you need to be gluten-free you know what we mean). But bacon from Soy Curls beats them all (at least we think so), because it has the flavor, it has the nutrition, and it has the CRISP!

This copycat vegan Boursin recipe is as awesome for snacking on as it is for entertaining! And it’s so easy to whip up a batch!

Copycat Cocomels: Vegan Coconut Milk Caramels (And They’re Easy to Make with Just 3 Ingredients and No Thermometer Required!)

Our copycat Cocomel vegan caramels recipe (made from coconut milk) is incredibly easy to make and takes only 3 ingredients! This is our own recipe for vegan caramels, developed after we realized that all of the recipes for coconut milk caramels out there are basically copies of the Saveur recipe (right down to the word-for-word copied “combine the sugar and the water and stir until sugar is wet” instructions). And most of them use use corn syrup, and also some sort of fat (vegan butter or solid coconut oil), and … water?? WTF? Cocomels don’t have that stuff in them! The ingredients for Cocomels are organic coconut milk, organic brown rice syrup, organic dried cane syrup, sea salt, and xanthan gum. Period. The ingredients for our copycat Cocomels vegan caramels are organic coconut milk, organic brown rice syrup, and organic sugar. No xanthan gum. For this recipe we use the organic coconut milk and organic sugar from Costco (but of course you don’t have to).

Our easy peasy gluten-free vegan coconut bacon recipe can be whipped up and ready to eat in just 20 minutes, and it’s delicious!

The second is for vegan bacon bits made from textured vegetable protein (TVP). The third, this one, is for vegan bacon made from coconut. Coconut bacon has been around, and even ‘all the rage’ for a bit now, and so we have, we believe, perfected it. This is the vegan bacon that we use in our gluten-free vegan egg cups, which are like vegan mini frittatas.
