Vegan Brisket

Bite into this vegan brisket BBQ sandwich! Why does it work? My brisket recipe combines tofu skin with unsweetened mochi to have protein + fat. The mochi is just a starch by itself, but it soaks up a bit of oil while frying so balances the protein in recipes that expect a bit of fat….

Vegan Short Ribs

They may slightly resemble sandwich cookies, but these vegan ribs pack a powerful umami punch. The “fat” is from mochiko flour, or glutinous rice flour, which is the main ingredient in (you guessed it) mochi. Despite the title, glutinous rice flour is still gluten free, the name comes from the intensely sticky properties this flour…

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…

Yuba Bacon

My favorite part of yuba bacon is where everyone gets wildly confused and asks me again what they’re eating. The smoked maple flavor evokes a strong bacon smell, and the delicate protein structure of yuba lends itself beautifully to be marinated and fried. Once your dinner guests catch on, you’ll have to guard the plate…

Mushroom Turkey

It’s a real Thanksgiving turkey, without the Turkey of course. Although because it’s a bit flat, I always get teased that it’s a Thanksgiving duck (I don’t get teased about the flavor!) This is an absurdly fussy recipe, but not actually at all difficult. I make this the night before the holiday so that it…

Cobb Salad

This salad takes quite a bit of prep, but it’s faithful to recreating the flavors of the original. I’m not really a salad person, so I love richly flavored salads loaded with toppings – and this recipe fits perfectly. Vegan Cobb Salad Ingredients: 1 large bunch kale, washed & massaged with olive oil 1 batch…
