Gluten-free vegan carrot cake is one of the holy grails of those who are gluten-free and vegan, isn’t it? Maybe even the holy grail. Fortunately, as you’re probably aware, gluten-free vegan desserts are much tastier than the poor rep they so often receive. They are often way more delicious and complex than the nut and seed bars you probably ate when you were first exploring a vegan lifestyle. This incredible carrot cake contains no gluten or animal products whatsoever; you’ll be in gluten-free vegan heaven at the first bite.

As you can probably tell, we are huge fans of muffins. After we began to pursue a vegan, gluten-free diet, we were saddened to discover that most coffee shops and stores only sold pastries filled with dairy, gluten, and/or eggs.
We recently made this artichoke/spinach dip for New Year’s Eve, and it was a hit! The dip features a robust but subtle flavor and protein galore (due to its cashew base and the addition of nutritional yeast).
We love to buy Goddess dressing at the grocery store, but it’s so expensive! After eating a couple of salads, half the dressing is gone.

Many of us have unpleasant childhood memories of being forced to eat Brussels sprouts. Such a mindset is unfortunate because, cooked properly, this cruciferous vegetable is both tasty and nutritious. Many chefs are beginning to appreciate the flavor of the oft-maligned Brussels sprout, so the tide is slowly turning in its favor. Our delicious vegan, gluten-free recipe utilizes dried cranberries, orange zest and toasted hazelnuts to create a taste sensation. You’ll be proud to showcase this offering on your Thanksgiving table. It’s crunchy yet tender, with a hint of sweetness, and packed full of vitamins. The hazelnuts add a bit of protein to our elegant side dish. Yum!
This Instant Pot Gluten Free Vegan Millet and Black Bean Soup is hearty and full of delicious protein. Millet is a seed that is high in fiber, magnesium, zinc, and B vitamins, similar to quinoa. By using dried beans, this entire recipe is nutrient dense while being economically savvy. The black beans makes this soup satisfying and filling, and it reminds you of a chili. Heat from the spices gives it a yummy kick, while the corn adds a touch of sweetness.
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!

Feel free to substitute a milder or spicier salsa depending on your preferences. Top with fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, or parsley. Chopped green onions also make a great garnish!
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.
These Instant Pot gluten-free vegan ranch potatoes are incredibly tasty and flavorful. The secret is in the herbs! The dill, chives, and garlic really make the ranch flavor shine. While yellow potatoes were used for this recipe, redskins also work well as they provide a nice backdrop for the herb mix. Don’t skimp on the dill! That provides the authentic and distinctive ranch flavor to the dish.
You’ve undoubtedly had the disheartening experience of going to a potluck and encountering a slew of dairy-based dips and spreads. This can be frustrating if you’re doing your best to follow a vegan, gluten-free diet. Don’t despair! Here is a delicious, creamy spread you can make from tofu that tastes just as good as the dairy-based variety! Even your non-vegan friends will love it. They may even beg you for the recipe. The spread is healthy, since it utilizes basil and Italian parsley, herbs that are rich in vitamin C. The tofu adds protein and calcium. Much healthier than your average spread, and so easy to make!
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!
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. Some may add smoke flavor or salt, so be mindful of that with the liquid smoke in the recipe, and the final salting at the end.
