Pecan Pie Tartlets, Vegan & Date Sweetened

We are less than a week away from Turkey Day and it is crunch time for planning dessert for your big meal! 🍷🍴 These Vegan Pecan Pie Tartlets are the perfect small dessert to accompany the pumpkin pie 🤤 Made with just dates, nuts, whole wheat flour, ground flaxseed, and a few other simple ingredients…

Tofu Bacon

Once I realized that tofu can be turned into almost anything I started to use it for EVERYTHING! In the past I’ve always made seitan bacon (if you prefer seitan to tofu check out my seitan bacon recipe!) but it requires frying which is something I don’t always want to do on a Saturday morning…

Vegan Pumpkin Donuts

I could eat donuts every morning of my life. When I was a ravenous pre-teen my donut of choice was ALWAYS a yeast donut but over the years I’ve become far more fond of the cake donut. Way better for dipping in coffee, more filling ….and healthier of course. 🤭 These donuts are completely plant-based…

Pumpkin Pecan Bran Muffins

The fact that I now have a bran muffin recipe for every season (Regular, Gingerbread, and now Pumpkin Pecan) shows my deep dedication to bran and all things fibrous. One of the most important things you can do for your body is making sure you have an adequate amount of fiber in your diet! It…

Pumpkin Chickpea Curry

In honor of October and pumpkin season, I’ve created this delicious & cozy Pumpkin Chickpea Curry! 🎃🍁🍂 This recipe is uses canned pumpkin which I LOVE because it’s cheap, healthy, and adds such a nice velvety thickness to the curry. Also don’t be afraid to use frozen veggies as they are SO much cheaper as…

Vegan Seitan Bratwurst

I’m originally from Wisconsin where brats are king and in my opinion the most important part of any German/Polish food item is kraut and caraway seeds. After experimenting with homemade seitan hot dogs and spicy Italian sausages I knew I had to tackle brats next. The sauerkraut in these brats adds great texture & moisture…

Spicy Italian Seitan Sausages

Field Roast is a company I idolize and for the longest time I’ve longed to make sausages and faux meat that even a fraction close to what they produce. After realizing that seitan hot dogs weren’t that scary to master I immediately went to work on 2 of my other flavor combinations: bratwurst and spicy…

Black Bean & Walnut Burgers

The first veggie burger I ever made myself was kind of a disgrace. It was a base of brown rice and black beans but I didn’t have a food processor, or even a nice blender, so as soon as I bit into it it crumbled apart into pieces. Since then I’ve come up with a…

Oil-Free Vegan Scones

I love scones, but more often than not they are made with TONS of butter and having just one means saddling up for 400 calories or more. When I want a scone I want SCONES, plural. I took a tip from my favorite biscuit recipe by Jane Esslestyn and decided to use walnut paste instead…

(Almost) One-Pot Vegan Mac & Cheese

At this point in time, I’ve made my fair share of dairy-free mac & cheese, and it’s not always the easiest endeavor. You either have to invest in store-bought vegan cheeses, soak cashews for hours, or boil veggies until they’re FINALLY soft. I got sick of having to do what seemed like hours of prep…

Seitan Hot Dogs

Let’s be honest right now. Who doesn’t love the guilty pleasure of a hot dog? Whether it’s cut up in mac & cheese or SpaghettiOs (check this site for my recipe!), popped on the grill in the summer, or just eaten cold out of the fridge, I always get hit immediately with tasty nostalgia. After…
