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.
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!
I’ve been baking my way through Paul Hollywood’s fantastic book called Bread, and here is my take on his first 6 recipes, in the section Classic Breads.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
You toss some cashews and cheesy sauce ingredients into a blender, boil the pasta and broccoli in the same pot, and mix it all together. Plant-based mac & cheese is a new favorite at our house!
