Every Christmas when I was a kid, I would help my mom make stuffed mushrooms. When they’re freshly baked, the soft juicy mushroom blends with the crunchy cheesy topping to make a party in your mouth. Here’s a vegan version we made this year for our holiday festivities.
We’re not Jewish, but we still love to make latkes when Hanukkah time comes around. The salty potato and onion mixed with sweet applesauce is a special treat that keeps us wanting more.
If you’ve ever wanted to try a Canadian-American-style holiday meal that doesn’t have turkey or ham in it, here’s what we’re cooking up this holiday season. I’d also love to hear about any traditions your family follows, to help spread the joy of a plant-based holiday.
These beet burgers taste like you’re dining at a fancy bistro, which isn’t exactly possible in many quarantined cities right now. I chopped up the beet greens to throw into the mix as well.
I love French onion soup: the earthy oniony broth, the soft soaked bread, the gooey melty cheese. This is the first time I’ve tried making it at home, and it was fantastic. We even made our own plant-based mozzarella from cashews!
If you have Polish or Russian roots, your Grandma might be called your Babushka. This is a simply delicious “Babushka stew” with potatoes, cabbage, carrots, onions, chick peas, rice, dill, thyme, and a bit of plant-based ground meat.
We used to make this dish with beef and dairy, but I’d say we all enjoy this vegan mushroom stroganoff just as much, if not more. It gets bonus points for not leaving a super heavy feeling in your stomach.
When we made this potato leek soup, we nicknamed it “hug soup” because eating it feels like melting into a warm hug. The creaminess of the coconut milk marries beautifully with healing herbs and lovely leeks.
Here’s a comforting casserole filled with tofu, veggies, and a creamy sauce, topped with soft, pillowy biscuits. It’s a wonderful weekend project if you have some extra time and love to put into making dinner.
On a chilly fall day, there’s nothing like coming home to a bowl of warm, hearty Irish stew. Here’s a plant-based version that nourishes your spirit and sticks to your ribs as much as any meat-based stew would.
