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.

To make them be not cocoa, but plain, just substitute the plain crispy rice cereal of your choice.

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.

Our delicious vegan, gluten-free recipe utilizes dried cranberries, orange zest and toasted hazelnuts to create a taste sensation.

The hazelnuts add a bit of protein to our elegant side dish. Yum!

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?

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.

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.

That provides the authentic and distinctive ranch flavor to the dish.
