Banana Bread

This recipe is one-bowl and has just banana-chocolate flavor, which is my favorite. I’ve actually tweaked it quite a bit over time to be simpler, which is all the more reason to make it often! Ingredients (makes 1 large loaf) 6 small, very ripe bananas (or 5 medium)⅔ cup refined coconut oil1 cup coconut sugar1…

Vegan “Butter” Chickpeas

this is a very generous quantity (reduce as needed) of the smooth, buttery & subtly spiced traditional Indian dish. Finally I have leftovers! We ate this with a very simple hot sauce (so that we could adjust the heat to our preference), so you can do the same or add more chiles to your pot!…

Spicy Vegan Shrimp Sushi Donuts

Sushi donuts are a great dish to make to share – to make them easier to eat individually, you can cut out little squares of toasted nori and lay it on top. There’s really no other way about it – making and decorating a sushi donut is mostly just for fun, and because they’re beautiful….

Vegan Crunchwrap Supreme

It’s all in the name! A slight abomination of Tex-Mex cuisine, but hey, it’s a Taco Bell knockoff after all. This version has real deal flavor – don’t skimp on toppings or seasonings, and get the biggest rice tortillas that you can find. This isn’t a particularly dainty food, but after one bite I don’t…

Scallop-Bacon Arancini

Arancini are a Sicilian food, named for their likeness to oranges, and is traditionally eaten as a feast on December 13th to commemorate a grain-ship arriving to relieve a famine. To me, this is a decadent meal to be prepared at any time, but particularly useful to freeze in advance and whip up a last…

Amaretto Cake Donuts with Cream Cheese Glaze

The smell of almond extract is intoxicating, so much so that I might make batches of these just to keep inhaling it while I bake them. This dessert is everything that I would want in a birthday cake, but in a *slightly* more adult form. You should never limit yourself to a special occasion to…

Homemade Ajvar

Ajvar is a red pepper and eggplant spread from the Balkans, traditionally served with meat. When my mother, as a vegetarian, asked for some my great-uncle remarked “Oh you like the expensive stuff.” For them it was expensive because they made it once a year, in early autumn after the red pepper harvest, and then…

Taquito Burritos – Vegan & Gluten Free

The Taquito Burrito is perhaps the epitome of decadent vegan party food. It’s what Taco Bell should be! Especially the part where this is entirely plant based and gluten free. Make this and watch all of your friends get suddenly very friendly, with perhaps the request to make it for them too… Taquito burritos –…

Spicy Vegan Buffalo Mozzarella Sticks

These mozzarella sticks are a magnificent expression of vegan junk food. I’ve found greater success freezing them before frying – vegan cheese needs a bit more help holding onto the breadcrumb coating. Don’t skimp on taking these to the next level with buffalo sauce! If we are honest it’s the way all mozzarella sticks should…
