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.
Sometimes a classic French baguette is necessary to brighten everyone’s spirits. The crackly crust, soft center, and amazing fresh-baked smell will put a smile on most faces.
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!
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.
Banana milk is one of my favorite pick-me-up drinks when I want a light breakfast or a refreshing afternoon snack. So easy to throw together: just a banana, soy milk, some greens powder, and vanilla. If you have a blender and 3 minutes, you can make this too!
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.
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.
