Stuffed Acorn Squash With Quinoa, Hazelnuts, and Kale! So Perfect For Winter! And It’s Vegan and Gluten-Free, Too!
We’re huge fans of squash, especially during the late autumn/winter months. There’s just something so comforting about it.
When the temperatures plummet, there’s nothing more soothing than soup. A warm bowl is like heaven on a winter evening, when you want to nourish yourself but don’t feel much like cooking.
Here’s a protein-rich meal you’re going to love and want to make over and over. It’s great for a cool fall evening, because your house will warm up while you’re cooking the tomato sauce.
We finally made it to hot soup season, and we couldn’t be happier! Nothing is better on a chilly evening than a bowl of nourishing soup, perhaps with a side of gluten-free garlic toast.
If you’d like to whip up a simple but elegant gourmet meal with only a few vegetables, some black beans, and a couple of spices, this recipe will thrill you to pieces!
Sometimes you want to add a little extra pizzazz to your vegetables. Sure, they’re great steamed, baked, or sautéed. But, if you want an extra layer of goodness, you really need to try our vegan, gluten-free almond/garlic topping.
If you need to whip up a quick vegan, high-protein sandwich, you’ll be delighted by our black bean burger recipe! These patties are super easy and inexpensive to make and will fill you up for hours.
You might not be able to take an actual trip to Italy right now, but you can make this yummy vegan, gluten-free focaccia with a minimal number of ingredients.
Sometimes, you just long for comfort food — something to fill you up and make you feel satisfied. But you don’t want to indulge your cravings with meat, gluten, or dairy.
Tofu is pretty bland on its own. However, marinated and cooked properly, these plain white slabs become exotic and delicious!
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
