Vegan Mug Cake with Pineapple and Mint

Most mug cakes are made with chocolate - this tropical vegan mug cake version is made with fresh pineapple, banana, coconut cream, and mint. No chocolate in sight! Just the way I like it.

Ultimate Tofu Breakfast Burrito Bowls

Tofu scrambles up just like eggs, and with some clever spices, even non-vegans will barely notice the difference. Try setting out toppings to let family or guests assemble their own burrito bowls.

Vegan Zucchini Noodles with Chickpeas and Zucchini Blossoms

This is a quick and nutritious vegan main. You can leave out the zucchini blossoms since they are only in season for a short while, but if you can find them, make sure to use them!

Rice Paper Fake Bacon

Rating: Unrated

Some fake bacons are hit-and-miss, but because bacon is the one thing most people miss when switching to a vegetarian or vegan way of life, it's expected a fitting alternative is created. This recipe not only offers a completely meat-free bacon, but one that is low in fat and calories. To mimic the intoxicating aroma that we have come to love in the real thing, we used a combination of liquid smoke and paprika to achieve similar results cleverly using rice paper.

Steamed Vegan Rice Cakes (Banh Bo Hap)

Easy recipe for steamed rice cake, banh bo hap, a spongy, sweet, and gorgeous-looking vegan dessert. It costs next to nothing to make and fun for the kids.

Couscous with Olives and Sun-Dried Tomato

Rating: Unrated
35
A delicate, flavorful dish that will satisfy vegans and carnivores alike! Inspired by my family's deep Coptic Orthodox Christian tradition, this is a great meal alternative during strict fasting times. It contains no animal products or fats, but has enough flavor and visual impact to make you feel like you're not sacrificing a thing! I hope you will enjoy this recipe. Add chicken or prawns to make this vegan dish a carnivorous delight!

Vegan Tomato Soup

I don't peel the tomatoes because there are lots of vitamins and fiber in the skin. If you puree the soup well, you won't taste them. I use half cherry tomatoes, half regular tomatoes.

Cashews, non-dairy milk, and silken tofu are the secret ingredients in this rich, vegan cheesecake--homey spices like ginger and cinnamon add fall flavor.
