Potatoes: Two Ways

Potatoes: Two Ways

The best part about Thanksgiving, to me, is mashed potatoes! Seriously, who doesn’t love potatoes? Mashed, roasted, steamed, fried…Give me them all. Before going Vegan we would always buy these pre-made (I know…We’re terrible people) maple whipped sweet potatoes just because they were SO good! Since I can’t eat them anymore, I wanted to try to recreate them on my own and I must say…they’re pretty epic.  We also have some roasted garlic mashed potatoes because that combination is just glorious. No other way to really describe it.  Roasting Garlic is actually SUPER SIMPLE! It also tastes so delicious! It… View Post

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Sides are probably one of the most important factors in the holidays! Tasty sides help make up a successful holiday meal and I want to help you guys have that successful VEGAN meal!  I decided to go for two incredibly simple recipes that can cook at the same exact time if you’re looking to make more than one vegetable side. Both using ingredients that you most likely have on hand, and will take 35-40 minutes to make in total.  Brussel sprouts have easily become one of my favorite vegetables. As a kid I absolutely despised them (didn’t we all?), but… View Post

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

I have never been a fan of stuffing. I know it’s crazy. Bread? Veggies? How could I say no? I think it’s because I was such a picky eater for a long time. However after going Vegan, I have developed a whole new love for food and I knew that this would have to be a recipe I attempted for the holiday season.    I have always loved cornbread. I grew up with my grandmother making her own and I’ve always cherished that family memory. My grandmother is still alive but has sadly declined in the past few years so… View Post

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I wanted to release another special recipe for you guys to share with your friends/family. Of course this recipe doesn’t have to be just for Thanksgiving, and is suitable for any Fall time event.  Pumpkin pie is probably my favorite dessert out there. In general, I’ve always been a pie person. I’ve never been into cakes, and have always preferred to have the flaky crust rather than a spongey cake. So I knew that I had to attempt a Vegan pie recipe this year.  I am quite surprised with how easy making a pie really… View Post

Stuffed Holiday Seitan

Stuffed Holiday Seitan

It is incredibly easy for us to head to the grocery store the day before Thanksgiving and picking up either a Tofurky roast or one of Gardein’s holiday products. I completely get it. However, why not try to make your own? Not only is it healthier, but it will taste just as good (even better).  Seitan is mainly made out of vital wheat gluten, which is the main protein of wheat. It is a great soy substitute and is incredibly easy to make. It may seem intimidating, but I was shocked myself with how easy it was.  Instead of making… View Post
