Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Vegans won’t miss the buttermilk in this Irish soda bread. It’s a lovely accompaniment to a meal any time of the dat, from breakfast to tea to stew. I’m a proud Irish-American.

Vegan Banana-Clove Muffins

Banana and clove—awesome, right? These muffins are made with spelt flour for a more nutty, sweeter complement to the bananas. Clove provides a nice, spicy background. Feel free to add chocolate chips or nuts if you like, too. I’m always up for interesting flavour combinations, and I have a pretty keen sense of what will […]
