Sometimes you’re away from home, and you need a quick, protein-packed pick-me-up. Something nourishing, maybe a bit sweet. Don’t reach for a candy or granola bar — they’re often packed with white sugar, and too often contain dairy or even gluten.
The waning days of summer have us longing for the tropics. You may feel the same way. Though a beach vacation is out of reach right now, you can prepare our sweet but hearty, pineapple-based dish instead.
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.
We admit that we’ve been on a bit of a roll with bananas lately. They’re so sweet, and such a great treat for hot summer days (and nights!)
Some desserts are almost too good to be true! Especially when they’re vegan, gluten-free, and you can’t believe they were made without eggs or dairy!
Buddha Bowls With Lentils, Roasted Carrots and Roasted Sweet Potatoes! Vegan, Gluten-Free, and So Nourishing!
If you have only a few ingredients, you can still make a filling, delicious meal. These Buddha Bowls are easy to prepare, inexpensive, and will keep you nourished for hours!
We recently discovered the most refreshing gazpacho imaginable — made with pineapple and cucumber! You probably have a cucumber or two lounging around your kitchen, especially if you have a garden.
We had a jar of vegan mayonnaise in our refrigerator, and since we hate to see anything go to waste, we wracked our brains to determine what to do with it.
Sometimes, you crave something sweet — like right NOW — but you don’t have a lot of ingredients in your cupboard. It can be a drag to go to the store on a hot summer afternoon, especially for a few items.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
Do you still have a few leftover zucchinis from your summer garden? You may be wondering what to do with them. Most likely, you’ve given several of them away to friends, and they’ve made it clear they don’t want or need any more. Try as you might, you can’t get rid of all of them! Never fear — our sweet bread recipe will give a whole new purpose to those succulent, green vegetables. The addition of unsweetened cocoa and walnuts will send you into orbit. Good thing this recipe makes two loaves, because you won’t have any trouble devouring the first one.
There’s nothing quite like stew on a chilly fall night. It warms and comforts you, fills your belly, and gives you the vitamins you need to fight off colds. Really — what’s NOT to love about stew? This hearty West African peanut variety is packed full of vitamins and protein, since it contains peanut butter, collard greens, sweet potatoes, garlic, and other nutritious ingredients. On top of that, it’s delicious! Try it, we feel confident you’ll agree.
It’s already fall where we live, and our thoughts naturally turn to pumpkin treats. And what is more autumnal than pumpkin pie? Normally, this cool weather delicacy is made with eggs and condensed milk, but our vegan, gluten-free version calls for unsweetened almond milk and cornstarch (or arrowroot powder). The texture is more jiggly than a traditional pumpkin pie, but our version still tastes great and goes down smooth!
