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.

Vegan Squash Quesadillas with Chipotle-Lime Crème Fraîche

What better use for your new crème fraîche skills than topping some indulgent squash and cheese quesadillas with a spicy, tangy, creamy sauce? When I was but a wee goth-punk (yep, you read that right), I used to subsist off two things: Bagels, toasted, topped with whipped cream cheese, and sprinkled with oregano…

Vegan Freezer Burritos

Try these burritos on for size! Instead of spending $8 at the store or $6 at the supermarket, make these for under two bucks each instead.

Vegan Quiche, Revisited

This recipe is a second iteration of vegan macaroni and cheese, which I conquered earlier here. This variation is […]

Vegan Spinach-Artichoke Dip

My friend John always makes spinach-artichoke dip for potlucks, and I told him that I was going to create a vegan version that was even better. I’ve never really had spinach-artichoke dip, but it seems like it’s normally mostly cream cheese and mayonnaise. This spinach artichoke dip isn’t only actually mostly spinach and artichoke, it’s […]
