Vegan Lasagna

This vegan lasagna makes use of a bunch of fresh summer ingredients. It takes a bit of prep, but all of the steps are easy and the end result is oh-so satisfying. Vegetarians beware—this lasagna will make you rethink the notion that you “can’t live without cheese.” Wow. I meant to publish this just under […]

Vegan Crème Fraîche

This tangy cream is used in everything from swirling into soups to topping freshly sliced fruit. Use it as a base to create flavoured creams for dipping or spreading, or simply dollop on top as a garnish. There are a few recipes out there for vegan crème fraîche. Some of them involve mixing other things […]

Vegan Chicken and Dumpling Soup

Hearty and stupidly easy to make, this chicken and dumpling soup is best after long, cold days when there are lots of hungry mouths to feed. I love dill. Some find it overpowering, but I could sneak it into everything. It brightens salads, rounds out dressings, and pops in dumplings. I love making biscuits or […]

Vegan Buffalo Wings

These spicy wings bear an uncanny resemblance to highly processed industrial meat product—but they’re exceptionally homemade! Just in time for the Pats to win the Super Bowl bitter New England vegan food bloggers to update posts that they were drafting hopefully last Sunday, I’m reposting my recipe for…

Vegan Jerky from Shiitake Mushrooms

Wondering how to make vegan beef jerky? Fear not! This fool-proof recipe relies on shiitake mushrooms for a chewy bite and toothsome texture. NH-hunter-approved, apparently. I still remember my joy at discovering that all Clif bars are vegan. This was in high school, in the early days of my veganhood. I’ll admit, with my hectic…

Make some extra and freeze for sharing at impromptu cookouts with friends and family. Last summer, I aimed to perfect a vege burger recipe. Like uninspired iceberg […]

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese with Daiya

This take on vegan mac+cheese uses Daiya cheddar style shreds instead of a roux-based cheese sauce. The Daiya is creamier and a little more melty/stretchy, and the flavour is much more mild than my other mac+cheese. This recipe is a second iteration of vegan macaroni and cheese, which I conquered earlier here. This variation is […]

Fried Wontons

Why is fried food so delicious? It’s horrible for you, and these are essentially deep-fried, wrapped cream cheese…BUT THEY’RE SO GOOD. I tried to create a more ‘authentic’ sweet and sour sauce, even though it’s only more authentic than American recreations. Real sweet and sour sauce, I’m sorry. I had some leftover wonton wrappers from […]
