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.”
Guacamole: my favourite way to eat more fat. (Yes, even more favourite than cashews, if you can believe it.)
Tapenade is a lovely Provençal dish. Traditionally, it includes anchovies, but this vegan version keeps it simple with olives, capers, and other flavourful ingredients. It’s still briny and delicious, it looks beautiful, and it’s easy to serve up with crackers or bread.
This barbecue sauce is a no-brainer alternative to the ones in the store, which always seem to be mostly corn syrup. Bonus: it’ll make your kitchen smell awesome, and get you in the mood for some grilling.
These are, in my humble opinion, the perfect vege burgers. The have a bite to them, a toothsome texture, and an ability to hold up on the grill. Make some extra and freeze for sharing at impromptu cookouts with friends and family.
This quiche includes an update to the filling recipe from my Spring Asparagus Quiche. It’s presented in pretty lazy fashion—grab a crust, sauté some veges, and make this filling—but it’s damned good. If you’ve got a little extra time to make brunch or lunch, then roll up your sleeves, dig out the unused veges from your fridge, and make some quiche!
Speaking as someone who doesn’t really prefer mushrooms, this soup is a perfect mix of earthiness and creaminess. It makes for a pretty presentation and a perfect accompaniment to any Thanksgiving or other vegan holiday meal. But don’t you dare even think about subbing the leeks with yellow onions!
This combination of cauliflowers and peas is a dry curried dish that will warm up even the coldest and rainiest of days. It goes well with warm rice and fresh naan, or stores excellently for lunchtime leftovers.
For July’s installment of the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally, we were challenged to make fresh pasta. Ingredients? Flour and eggs. All that I had to do was figure out how to replace the flour and the eggs… Easy, right? I ended up making long, flat noodles (tagliatelle) in a creamy artichoke sauce. This is a luxurious summer meal.
