I feel it necessary to say up front that these are THE BEST, and they are ALL VEGAN. I wanted a proper vegan cream cheese frosting to get the classic carrot cake feel…
Of course, when you think of breakfast or brunch, invariably, you will think of eggs, bacon, coffee with cream and sugar. That is, you will think of foods that are the opposite of vegan. I swear to you though, a vegan brunch as familiar as your old standard of bacon, eggs, and toast with butter, is totally possible and delicious.
I think there is a common misconception that vegans can’t have baked goods. The traditional recipes are FULL of milk, egg, butter — all those animal by-products. Fortunately there are MANY vegan alternative recipes to the beloved traditional baked goods… one of my favourites, the Cinnamon Bun.
It wasn’t until my taste buds developed a bit that I started to enjoy quiche for the rich, savoury flavour, and the versatility, and indulgence. Then, soon after I’d learned to like quiche, I became vegan and found a substitute for quiche!
I’ve always been a bit of an eggnog fiend. Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit better than a fresh cup of eggnog and Christmas songs. This will be my first Vegan Christmas, and I was starting to feel a bit of a nostalgia pang — so I decided to solve it with some vegan eggnog!
Halloween is my favourite holiday. I love fall, I love dress-up, and I love ghost stories. More importantly, though, this holiday encourages more creativity than all others, and how could I not love that?! This year, I got to have fun making spooky vegan recipes and drinks, with a couple gluten-free options as well. Come into my blog lair, and let me show you…
The typical vegan cheesecake recipe involves a cashew base. Having over-indulged on all things cashew at the start of my vegan journey, I developed a bit of a sensitivity to the nut. I tend to get super bloated and pained when I eat cashews now, so I had mostly ruled out cheesecake for the foreseeable future. Until now… This recipe does not use any cashews! That’s also good news for those looking for a less fat-heavy cheesecake recipe. The base of this cheesecake is coconut milk, which is half the fat content of cashews.
