Vegan Mug Cake with Pineapple and Mint

Rating: 3 stars
1
Most mug cakes are made with chocolate - this tropical vegan mug cake version is made with fresh pineapple, banana, coconut cream, and mint. No chocolate in sight! Just the way I like it.

Ultimate Tofu Breakfast Burrito Bowls

Rating: 4.79 stars
53
Tofu scrambles up just like eggs, and with some clever spices, even non-vegans will barely notice the difference. Try setting out toppings to let family or guests assemble their own burrito bowls.

Vegan Zucchini Noodles with Chickpeas and Zucchini Blossoms

Rating: 5 stars
1
This is a quick and nutritious vegan main. You can leave out the zucchini blossoms since they are only in season for a short while, but if you can find them, make sure to use them!

Rice Paper Fake Bacon

Rating: 4.36 stars
11
Some fake bacons are hit-and-miss, but because bacon is the one thing most people miss when switching to a vegetarian or vegan way of life, it's expected a fitting alternative is created. This recipe not only offers a completely meat-free bacon, but one that is low in fat and calories. To mimic the intoxicating aroma that we have come to love in the real thing, we used a combination of liquid smoke and paprika to achieve similar results cleverly using rice paper.

Steamed Vegan Rice Cakes (Banh Bo Hap)

Easy recipe for steamed rice cake, banh bo hap, a spongy, sweet, and gorgeous-looking vegan dessert. It costs next to nothing to make and fun for the kids.

Couscous with Olives and Sun-Dried Tomato

Rating: 4.5 stars
56
A delicate, flavorful dish that will satisfy vegans and carnivores alike! Inspired by my family's deep Coptic Orthodox Christian tradition, this is a great meal alternative during strict fasting times. It contains no animal products or fats, but has enough flavor and visual impact to make you feel like you're not sacrificing a thing! I hope you will enjoy this recipe. Add chicken or prawns to make this vegan dish a carnivorous delight!

Vegan Tomato Soup

Rating: 4.62 stars
13
I don't peel the tomatoes because there are lots of vitamins and fiber in the skin. If you puree the soup well, you won't taste them. I use half cherry tomatoes, half regular tomatoes.

Chai Spice "Cheesecake"

Rating: 3.5 stars
2
Cashews, non-dairy milk, and silken tofu are the secret ingredients in this rich, vegan cheesecake--homey spices like ginger and cinnamon add fall flavor.

Spaghetti Sauce with Fresh Tomatoes

Made with fresh tomatoes! Wonderful taste. Serve over spaghetti noodles and add grated Parmesan cheese as desired.

Vegan Brownies

Rating: 4.18 stars

MMMMM...Vegan Brownies!!!! These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book. However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time. Great for people with egg or dairy allergies too!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

This salad is very colorful and includes a very tasty lime dressing.

Chana Masala (Savory Indian Chick Peas)

Rating: 4.34 stars
217
Indian food is not just curried sauces. It's not too exotic either. Unless 'exotic' is code for 'yummy and full of flavor.' This dish features a healthy mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, and spices. Both carnivores and vegetarians will enjoy this meal. My kids love it. Leave out the green chile if the kiddies will be eating. Serve over basmati or jasmine rice and enjoy. Namaste y'all!
