Pumpkin Pie (Dairy, Egg, and Gluten Free)

Rating: 5 stars 3
Dairy-free and egg-free pumpkin pie filling using any pie crust of choice. I am gluten free, so like the Mi-Del® graham cracker pie crust from Whole Foods. Tastes like a Libby's® Pumpkin Pie that my 3-year-old loved!

Roasted Pumpkins

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
These mini pumpkins are filled with applesauce then oven roasted - great for the holidays. If you are not a pumpkin fan, you can also roast squash the same way. Serve with your holiday meal.

Pumpkin Tart With Pecan Crust

Rating: 4 stars 38
My aunt made this pie for Thanksgiving last year, and getting the recipe from her was definitely a smart idea. This is not only a tasty recipe, but it's vegan.

Mashed Potatoes and Celery Root

Rating: 4 stars 3
This has become our favorite side dish to go with soups and main dishes. Doesn't need much salt. Celery root is an awesome discovery for flavor - these are the best mashed potatoes I've ever tasted.

Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole

Rating: 4 stars 8
A healthier, dairy-free version of sweet potato casserole.

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Rating: 4 stars 177
A great vegetable dish that can be used as a centerpiece or as a side. Can be lovely when served with tomato based sauce and a green vegetable, or I have even had them with traditional roasted vegetables at Christmas.

Chai Spice "Cheesecake"

Rating: 3.5 stars 2
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.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Rating: 4.5 stars 55
These air fryer sweet potato fries are simply addictive!

Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

Rating: 5 stars 15
Sweet potatoes on the grill have a smoky, caramelized flavor you can't achieve in the oven. These are mildly spicy, but adjust the cayenne to suit your taste. These are excellent served with grilled pork or fish.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Rating: 4.5 stars 1510
I was looking for a unique way to prepare broccoli and decided to give this a try! Florets are roasted after being tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and minced garlic. A squeeze of lemon juice before serving seals the deal.
