Pumpkin Spice Latte MUFFINS

Pumpkin Spice Latte MUFFINS

Adding caffeine straight into baked goods is nothing new around here. For this latest edition, we’ll take the flavors of a pumpkin spice latte and infuse them into tasty little whole-grain muffins. Seriously, I’m shocked at how much these actually taste like a Pumpkin Spice Latte. The espresso flavor (from instant coffee added to the batter) comes through strong, and the pumpkin pie spice adds, you know, pumpkin spice flavor. …

How to Make Easy Vegan Fudge Brownies

By  •  Dessert

In my experience, brownies are one of the most difficult baked goods to make vegan and that’s probably why it’s taken me 3 1/2 years to come up with a recipe that’s authentic and tasty enough to actually publish. It’s been worth the wait though, because these are definitely the best brownies I’ve ever made. One of the reasons brownies are so difficult is that they don’t rely much on …

Creamy Peanut Butter and Lentil Curry

By  •  Main Dish

By far the most popular recipes on my site are the curries. There’s the original Chickpea Curry, the Coconut and Sweet Potato Curry, the Dal Bhat, and the Dal Makhani. Adding to that list is this incredible, creamy curry made with peanut butter and lentils. It’s kind of “region independent” in the sense that it draws influence from Indian curries, African dishes, and maybe even some Thai inspiration as well. …

How to Make Vegan Potstickers

By  •  Main Dish

Making a potstickers recipe has been on my bucket list for a while; the wonton wrappers stuffed with a tasty filling, quickly seared in a skillet until they stick (stick to the pot, get it?) and then boiled with water for the last minute until the wrappers cook into beautiful soft, golden dumplings with all kinds of of amazing flavors. I’m really happy with this vegan version. The filling is …

No-Bake Vegan Twix Bars

By  •  Dessert

Hey everyone! Before we get into today’s recipe, I have some exciting news to share with you. As I mentioned last time, I’ve been obsessed for several months with the goal of making authentic plant-based cheeses that taste like cheese, that look like cheese, that behave like cheese (i.e. melt, stretch, grate, crumble, etc.), and that you can easily make at home with normal ingredients in under 30 minutes… It’s …

How to Make Homemade Marinara Sauce from Scratch

By  •  Basics

So I went over to check on my community garden yesterday and found that my Roma tomatoes plants had gone crazy over the last week! I ended up coming home with this… The only thing I could think to do with so many tomatoes was make homemade marinara sauce from scratch and freeze it. I ended up putting together a simple, classic recipe (below) and it was the freshest, tastiest …

Spaghetti Piccata with Lemon and Capers

By  •  Main Dish

If you’ve never heard of piccata, it’s basically an Italian dish of a buttery lemon garlic reduction poured over meat and sometimes pasta. Although piccata is a cream sauce like Alfredo, the two couldn’t be further apart. Alfredos are thick and creamy, piccata are light and buttery with bright aromatic flavors. I’ve been experimenting with a vegan piccata sauce with all those classic flavors, minus the butter and meat, obviously, …
