5-Minute Homemade Ketchup

Why would you make your own ketchup? Making your own staples is liberating, and ketchup is the gateway drug to this art. Quite suddenly, you’re not dependent upon the selection of brands available in a supermarket aisle. Instead, a fresh batch of fries in need of ketchup means that you can grab a jar of…

Homemade Cultured Vegan Butter

What’s so special about cultured vegan butter? Culturing the cashew cream gives this butter a movie-theater decadent flavor. You’ll want a batch of fresh bread just to enjoy this with! For ultra-rich movie theater vegan buttered popcorn, melt this and toss into butter with extra salt and nutritional yeast. The aquafaba is an emulsifier to…

Buffalo Maitake Tacos

I think the true spice of life might be Frank’s Red Hot sauce. Not sponsored! I discovered buffalo sauce late in life and have been making up for it ever since. Maitake mushrooms are aptly called “hen of the woods” – more than the frilly shape, they make remarkable vegan substitutes for chicken. Make use…

Healthy Snickers Bars

After one bite, these healthy vegan snickers bars speak for themselves. The softened dates make a rich caramel when combined with tahini and maple syrup, and the oat flour base adds just enough contrast to offset the mouthful of roasted peanuts. Life is good when you make your own chocolate bars – just make enough…

Copycat Kit Kat Bars – Vegan & Gluten Free

I wish I could say that I made the wafer from scratch on this and it was identical to a kit-kat bar, but that’s just not going to happen. I wanted something that tasted *exactly* like a kit kat, and there’s something decidedly mechanical about the wafer cookies that I doubt could be reproduced without…

Peanut-Ginger Buddha Bowls

The simplest way to eat a plant-based diet is to create a Buddha Bowl with a grain or salad base, veggies, a vegan protein, and sauce. The options are literally limitless — this just happens to be a particularly lovely combination. It’s definitely my go-to if I ever need to persuade someone to eat a…

One-Pot Vegan Penne alla Vodka

I’m finally posting the recipe that accounts for a significant amount of my pasta overconsumption … better yet, it only requires one pot (unless you want fancy toppings), and can easily be made plastic-free or zero waste if you buy in bulk or make homemade staples, compost food scraps, and reuse glass jars. If you’re…

Vegan (mac and) cheeseburgers

Why would you go through all the trouble of making vegan bacon burgers with a fried mac and cheese bun? Reread that description! It’s unbridled plant based decadence – entirely unhealthy while still being much better for you than an omnivorous version. Make this with Beyond Meat burgers and serve it to omnivores, to their…
