Plant-Based Holiday Celebrations

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.

Moist Vegan Chocolate Cake: Recipe #256

I’ve never put olive oil in a cake before, but this came out as just about the moistest, most flavorful chocolate cake we’ve ever eaten! We spread apricot jam between the layers, and the hints of vanilla-almond-chocolate-coconut really make it a cake worth having third helpings.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins: Recipe #254

Bananas and chocolate in a convenient portable (vegan) muffin cup. What could be better? Thanks to Megan for this recipe. I was skeptical about using 4 bananas for one dozen muffins, but it really makes them so moist. They’re definitely the best banana chocolate chip muffins I’ve ever tasted!

Crusted Tofu, Mashed Potatoes with White Bean Gravy and Massaged Collard Greens: Recipe #251

We learned today that when you make a satisfying crusted tofu and pair it with cauliflower mashed potatoes, rich white bean gravy and a lemony collard salad, it’s one of the best dinners you can imagine.
