Yes, you can reconstitute the Laird Superfood creamer in advance, so that you have Laird Superfood creamer in liquid form! (Read on for how to do it!) The Laird Superfood creamer is all the rage in the Vegan Costco group, and elsewhere, and for good reason! First, the awesome and clean ingredients: coconut milk powder, coconut sugar, calcium from marine algae (their proprietary version is Aquamin, which always makes us think of Aquaman), and extra virgin coconut oil. The coconut sugar and the coconut oil are organic, to boot!
Want an easy, delicious, gluten-free vegan doughnut recipe? One that doesn’t even resort to flax eggs or the like? Whether you call them donuts or doughnuts, our gluten-free vegan cinnamon doughnut recipe is going to become your new best friend! This is also a vegan Costco recipe because it features ingredients from Costco (although of course you don’t have to get yours from Costco!)
Golden Turmeric Cups (nicknamed Golden Cups or even Golden Fat Bombs) are super-easy to make, super delicious, and super good for you! And of course they are gluten-free and vegan. Full of healthy fats, and with the MCTs from coconut oil, and protein from nut butter and protein powder, they are a great ‘pick-me-up’ snack, and perfect for quick-quenching a bit of hunger! We get all of the main ingredients (all three of them :~)) at Costco, but you can of course get them elsewhere as well.
If you are looking for a healthful and different dessert or snack (or hey, breakfast bars), look no further. Our gluten-free vegan fig bars are it! With an easy press-in bottom crust, scrumptious filling made from dried figs (Costco has a great deal on them!), and lovely crumbly topping, these vegan fig bars are as easy to make as they are delicious!
We love us some hash brown potatoes, and we particularly like the shelf-stable cartons of dried hashbrowns (the manufacturer has it as one word even though technically it’s two words) that you can get from Costco. You just open the top of the carton, pour in boiling water, and let it sit for 12 minutes: presto! Enough shredded raw hashed potatoes to feed a small army – if that army is 2-4 people. The carton says it makes seven servings, but c’mon, who do they think they’re kidding?
Whether you call it vegan shepherd’s pie, vegan cottage pie, or vegan hachis parmentier, this easy and delicious gluten-free vegan recipe will delight you! Made entirely with shelf-stable products, the majority of which we get from Costco, this is a perfect recipe to make from things you have on hand in your pantry (and so it is both a ‘quarantine recipe’ and a ‘Costco recipe’).
If you are mourning the disappearance of Costco’s all-natural organic peanut butter, take heart! It’s easier and, we think, better to make your own! And you can make it smooth or chunky! All you need is a food processor and organic peanuts, and you can use either raw peanuts or roasted peanuts!
Here’s how to cook your pasta right in the sauce with your Instant Pot or other digital, electronic pressure cooker! With this method you can create a wonderful one-pot meal in no time, and with no fuss! It’s so easy, and it works for both regular and gluten-free pasta!
Everybody needs adequate good fat in their diet, yet many people don’t get enough good fat, or even pay attention to the amount of fat they eat on a daily basis. While the term “fat bomb” may not be familiar to you (unless you or someone you know is doing a keto diet), homemade vegan fat bombs are a great way to help make sure that your body gets enough of the good fat that it needs for brain and organ function, vitamin and nutrient absorption, and hormone and energy production.
So many people have asked “Can you cook pasta right in the sauce in the Instant Pot?” and the answer is yes! You can cook the sauce and pasta together at the same time in an Instant Pot! Here’s how! We call this a Costco recipe because we use one or more ingredients from Costco, but of course you don’t have to.
Isn’t it funny how some vegan recipes are even easier to make than their non-vegan counterparts? That’s the case with this vegan chocolate mousse, and this isn’t just any old chocolate mousse! This is an almond joy chocolate mousse! We use the almond butter and maple syrup from Costco in this recipe.
Sometimes the easiest things are the best, and that is definitely true for these caramelized sweet potatoes! This recipe is a healthy way to enjoy sweet potatoes, and because it’s a baked sweet potato recipe you don’t even have to babysit it! What could be easier? Of course, it’s also true that while something can be easy as pie (or easy as sweet potatoes, in this case, even easier than pie!), if you don’t know about it, it doesn’t matter how easy it is. And that’s why we have written this up for you! And check it out, if you have a Costco nearby you can get 6 1/2 pounds of organic sweet potatoes for $10!
Being gluten-free and vegan doesn’t mean that you have to forego that ultimate of comfort foods: the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup! Now you can easily have a gluten-free vegan grilled cheese sandwich and our gluten-free vegan cream of tomato soup! We call this a vegan Costco recipe because we get the ingredients from Costco, and we call this a quarantine recipe because the ingredients are all shelf-stable.
If you have a hankering for some rib-sticking corn chowder, this is just the ticket. This vegan version has a southwestern flare, but you can omit the green chili and pumpkin seeds (pepitas) if you prefer it to have more of a New England vibe.
If you have been wondering what you can use as a vegan substitute for fried eggs (for example to make a vegan fried egg sandwich) wonder no more! Our vegan egg substitute for frying is easy, straight-forward, super-healthful, full of protein (just like eggs) and tasty as all get out! In fact, it’s actually reminiscent of fried eggs, not just in texture and looks, but in how it tastes!
We call these protein candy squares, because they are delicious little squares of high protein delight. The keto crowd would call them ‘fat bombs’, but they are much lower calorie, and higher protein, than typical fat bombs. Best of all, they are gluten-free, vegan, very easy to make, and economical, because all of the ingredients are from Costco! (Although of course you don’t have to get the ingredients from Costco!)
Sometimes you just want something quick and easy. A recipe that is basically a quick set of instructions with just a few ingredients, bing, bang, boom, and you’re done. That is exactly what this 2-ingredient golden milk protein shake (sometimes called a turmeric smoothie or turmeric shake) is! In fact, we felt a little reluctant to post it, except that people have told us that it is genius and we should write it up It’s so easy to make, so delicious, and so good for you!
If you, like we, love Indian food, and like to eat Indian food at home, you are probably either making your own gluten-free vegan naan at home or, like us, have been looking for a recipe or source for vegan gluten-free naan.
This gluten-free vegan macaroni and cheese uses no commercial cheese substitute, and is perfect for people who want to keep it simple and clean!
