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….

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 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…

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 –…

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…
