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.”
Tofu ricotta cheese is one of the laziest vegan throw-togethers ever, and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand. (Quick! Make it before that block of tofu in the fridge turns!) For something so easy, it adds awesomeness to many dishes, including stuffed shells, lasagna, and especially pizza.
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.
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!
Do you like quiche, but not the excessive amount of effort that it takes to prepare a vegan one? Fear not! Polenta pie is here! Don’t be intimated by the polenta—it won’t bite. Or are you into that sort of thing?
This dish is a breeze to throw together, and it will help to bring everyone around the table. The flavour is delicate, yet well rounded, and each bite is a pleasure.
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.
