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….

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 –…

Vegan Spicy Tuna Stuffed Sushi Donuts

Sushi donuts are as aesthetically pleasing as they are tasty! They are easier to make than you’d think, with the help of a handy silicone donut mold (I promise you’ll use it more than you think). Chill them for a few hours before removing from the mold, and then decorate and eat right away. You…

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…

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…

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…

Korean Spicy Tofu Soup, with Homemade Tofu

This cozy soup recipe not only showcases a homemade tofu, but it uses kimchi which is a fermented superfood! I like any excuse to explore traditional cultural cooking, and the new spices and flavors that accompany it. This soup is a wonderful Korean dish, and definitely a quick way to fall in love with kimchi…

Corn Dogs

To be honest, I don’t think I’d ever had a “real” corn dog – it’s something I only became interested in when exploring the options of foods to “veganize.” And it does convert beautifully. This recipe is definitely having fun with food, but its exceptionally tasty as well. Corn Dogs: Ingredients: 1 bag Bob’s Red…
