Absolutely Perfect Veggie Burgers

At the beginning of summer, one of my goals was to discover the perfect veggie burger recipe and I definitely exceeded my own expectations! Before getting into it, I don’t think I ever even thought it was possible for veggie burgers to be both THIS good, hitting all the same pleasure sensors as a traditional…

Cranberry Gingerbread Instant Oatmeal Mix

It might sound dramatic, but making oatmeal mixes in bulk has changed my life recently and I have no idea how it took me so long to decide to start making them. Oatmeal has never been my go-to, but now that it’s so convenient I eat it almost every day and look really forward to…

Soy Curl Gyros with Vegan Tzatziki

I’ve had a lot of gyros in my life, back before I was vegan and pretty much every vegan version imaginable since, and these soy curl gyros are the absolute best there is. They’re perfect, truly truly perfect. And while they taste every bit as good (and then some) as the traditional gyros you know…

First Week Vegan Meal Plan

Lentil Enchiladas

These are my favorite plant based enchiladas I’ve ever had, they’re the only ones I fuck with, and I’ve tried tons of variations. I think where most people mess up when making vegan Mexican food, and I’ve done it too, is having way too many components. With the standard enchiladas, the fillings are all pretty…

Buffalo Tofu Salad

This is one well balanced salad! For every creamy component, there’s a light one, where there’s heat, there’s the chipotle ranch dressing to provide cooling relief and for every smoothie bite there’s some crunch. It’s uncomplicated yet totally crave-worthy and something I’m always in the mood for. The chipotle ranch dressing is fast to whip…

The list of the great qualities of a tofu scramble is a long…

Cultured Cashew Cream Cheese

I’ve been meaning to post this for a long, long time! This cream cheese is totally superior the dairy version (and I challenge any omnivore that is hesitant to believe that to eat a buttery, whole raw cashew and then try a sip of milk. Which one do you think would lend itself better to…
