Growing up, I always ate Cheez-It’s. They were such a staple snack in my life even not long before going Vegan. There is one Vegan Cheddar Square product on the market that is delicious, but I wanted to try to make my own!  With Halloween approaching, I decided to make these a bit more fun and use Halloween themed cookie cutters to make these cute bat & ghost shapes.  I think it’s insane that some people think Halloween inspired food is overrated and lame because it just puts you into that Fall spirit! Also, it’s a great way to spice… View Post

Chickpea “Tuna Salad” Pinwheels: Packed Lunch Idea #1

Chickpea “Tuna Salad” Pinwheels: Packed Lunch Idea #1

I rely on packed meals for many different instances. School, family gatherings, road trips etc. As a Vegan on the road or in public settings surrounded by (normally) non – Vegan options, it’s important to ALWAYS be prepared.  Lately, I have been showing you guys on my Instagram my packed lunches, and a bunch of you said you’d be interested in seeing more. So I decided to start a continuous series on my blog of different easy packed lunches.  I decided to start out pretty basic with some chickpea “tuna salad” pinwheels. This is a pretty popular recipe among us Vegans… View Post

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

Apple Pie Crescent Rolls

Apple Pie Crescent Rolls

Today is the final recipe I am doing for the Thanksgiving Collab with my friends for this coming Canadian Thanksgiving. These recipes are also acceptable for any Fall occasion and next months U.S Thanksgiving. All of my recipes this week have been Apple inspired because it’s one of my favorite Fall seasonal fruits and can be translated into so many dishes!  I decided to whip out the old Pillsbury Crescent Dough because it is “accidentally” Vegan, and is great to use in easy recipes that really take no time at all! So I decided to make this “Apple Pie” crescent… View Post

Fall Apple – Quinoa Kale Salad

Fall Apple – Quinoa Kale Salad

Keeping on the apple trend for my newest recipe by adding it to a delicious Kale based salad. It wasn’t until recently that I gained a love for adding fruit to my salads. Whether it be Strawberries during Summer time, to Apples now that we reached this Fall season, fruit can really compliment a bowl of salad greens.  Did you know that today (October 5th) is National Kale Day? How exciting is that? Kale is such an amazing green with tons of health benefits so it’s only right to celebrate it.  Quinoa is also a delicious seed that is high… View Post
