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…

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…

Spicy Vegan Buffalo Mozzarella Sticks

If we are honest it’s the way all mozzarella sticks should…

This recipe is definitely having fun with food, but its exceptionally tasty as well. Corn Dogs: Ingredients: 1 bag Bob’s Red…

Onion Rings

Onion rings that are vegan, gluten free, thoroughly fried, and don’t come apart in a pile of strings when you bite into them. They’re real, and they’re really simple to make! Keep a batch of them uncooked in the freezer for those times when you need exactly such a treat. Onion Rings: Ingredients: 1 Vidalia…

Doritos-style Mac & Cheese Fries

This is inspired by the fast food Burger King flaming mac and cheetos. The difference? These are a lot better, obviously! Plus, you can make them yourself very easily. Think about how much power that gives — use it wisely. Doritos-style mac and cheese fries: Ingredients: 1 box Daiya deluxe mac and cheese, prepared 1…
