Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Saint Patrick‚Äôs Day is just two weeks away, and while I am neither Irish and nor really into holidays that don’t involve getting a day off work, I do savor any excuse to make Irish soda bread.
Matzo Ball Soup

Matzo Ball Soup

For someone raised Gentile, I have always had an inexplicable love of matzo. It probably has something to do with never having been forced to eat the stuff for days on end, but whatever: I’m into it. You know what else I’m into? This matzo ball soup.
Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

You might wonder why a vegan atheist is reverse engineering Cadbury Creme Eggs, but look: my philosophy is that there’s (just about) never a reason not to party, okay?*

Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, this recipe for corned beef seitan should please even the biggest weirdo corned beef purist. What you do with this knowledge is up to you, but I highly suggest getting a bunch of friends together and celebrating with a tray of vegan reubens....

Cashew Coconut Nog

Cashew Coconut Nog

A few years ago, I came across a recipe for a cashew-based vegan eggnog on a blog I was following. I was intrigued, but noticed right away that the recipe called for a high-speed blender, which I didn’t have. Having once attempted to soak and puree cashews in a regular blender to lumpy, gritty results,...
Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree

Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree

If you live in the U.S., now is the time to buy up all the small cheap pumpkins you can get your hands on! Making your own pumpkin puree is exceptionally easy, and it’s typically much cheaper than buying cans in the store. I’m careful to freeze several containers of my own homemade puree every...
Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Roasted Pear and Fig Oatmeal

Two years ago, the only thing I craved for breakfast on the weekend was pancakes. For months and months, I ate pancakes — drizzled with maple syrup, alongside a mug of hot coffee — every single Saturday morning before heading out to the pottery studio. If my partner was doing the cooking, I would sometimes...

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

These southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes are a fun and tasty twist on traditional loaded potatoes.
Broccoli Tahini Bisque

Broccoli Tahini Bisque

Fall has officially returned, and with it my penchant for soups. This broccoli tahini bisque is almost as easy to make as it is luscious. Yeah, “luscious.” You read that right!
Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Banana Nut Porridge with Oatmeal, Quinoa, and Teff

Overnight oats are my default breakfast in the summer, but once the temperatures begin to drop, I like to spend chilly mornings cozied up with a hot bowl of oatmeal. This banana nut porridge with rolled oats, quinoa, and teff is currently my favorite weekend breakfast.
Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

For the first couple of months of summer, I made fresh spring rolls like it was my job. By the time August rolled (ha!) around, I’d mostly lost my patience for assembling them. I got lazy, okay? And thusly was Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad born!
Strawberry Beet Smoothie

Strawberry Beet Smoothie

So I’ve already taught you how to drink black beans and cucumbers. Next up? Beets. Enter this gloriously hued, brightly flavored strawberry beet smoothie. Do I qualify as a full-fledged weirdo yet?
Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Raw Oatmeal Raisin Balls

Were yesterday’s gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookies still not healthy enough for you? Then perhaps these raw oatmeal raisin balls will be more your style!
Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vegan Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A few months ago, I tried this recipe for “turtle” cookies, and they completely blew my mind. Since that day, I’ve made a dozen variations on that recipe, adjusting ingredients and playing with flavor combinations. This is my oatmeal raisin riff on that recipe.
Daifuku Mochi

Daifuku Mochi

Oh, what the heck? Since I reposted my recipe for sesame seed balls last week, I might as well bring back this old post for regular, non-deep-fried mochi. As long as you can track down a few special ingredients (and don’t mind making a mess), making daifuku is surprisingly easy!
Raw Tacos

Raw Tacos

I’ve been seeing recipes for raw tacos around the Web for years, but I never felt at all compelled to try them. I mean, tacos are perfect the way they are, right? It’s not like you have to do anything special to make a delicious vegan taco.
