Cauliflower Sauce Mac N Cheese

Cauliflower Sauce Mac N Cheese

If you have noticed, my blog is 100% free from any recipes that involve nuts. That is because I am allergic to peanuts and tree nuts! When becoming Vegan, I noticed that almost all of “cheesy” pasta sauces had a base of cashews. That can be super frustrating to someone (like me) who wants to enjoy creamy sauces or Vegan cheeses but can’t because a lot of them are nut based.  So since we are nut-free here on Plant Based Jane I wanted to bring out the handy cauliflower that worked so well in my last pasta recipe, and show you… View Post

Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta Sauce

Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta Sauce

It’s a little shocking to me that I haven’t done many pasta recipes as pasta is my all time favorite carb. I eat pasta 4 out of 7 nights a week for dinner so it’s something I enjoy on the regular.  Awhile back there was a “cauliflower sauce” craze that went around the web. At first, I wasn’t too fond of the idea. I tried it a could of times but could never truly understand what the craze was about it. I recently decided to start playing around with the sauce again but putting a new twist on it and… View Post

Orange Glazed Tofu

Orange Glazed Tofu

I have recently been starting to use corn starch a lot in my cooking, because I love the way it can thicken up a sauce and add such a luxurious feeling to so many dishes.  Tofu is a HUGE staple in my life, and I always have 1-2 blocks of it in my fridge. Previous to going Vegan, I literally could not understand Tofu. It creeped me out. I would laugh at the thought of eating Tofu. Funny how things change.  I use Tofu for so many dishes because it is SO versatile. Like for instance, did you know tofu… View Post

Vegan Stuffed Shells

Vegan Stuffed Shells

Ever since I was a kid, Italian food has always been my favorite. The pasta, pizza, bruschetta…Everything is so tasty. Before going Vegan, I was a ricotta obsessed. I loved it on almost everything and always had it in the house. After going Vegan I realized that Tofu makes an amazing Ricotta replacement! When crumbled like you would when scrambling Tofu, it makes such an amazing consistency. Paired with the right seasonings & other items, you wouldn’t know the difference. So I decided to recreate one of my favorite Italian recipes: Stuffed Shells. After trying this for the first time,… View Post

Easy Tofu Lettuce Cups

Easy Tofu Lettuce Cups

Hello everyone! I am back with another recipe for you guys. Something that I absolutely love are lettuce cups. Iceberg lettuce is crunchy, flavorful, and perfect for little cups to add an array of toppings to. As a kid  I was never able to eat lettuce cups because usually they were all made with peanut butter, or some type of nut (allergic). So I decided to make one that was nut allergy friendly but still had amazing flavor. Usually lettuce ups don’t come with rice , but I like them for added carbohydrates and to make them more filling. Makes… View Post
