Crave Eat Heal Blog Tour: Butternut Squash Queso

#SheikClass Vegan Sabzi Polow

Even though I love doing weird things in the kitchen (like changing Agnostic Front lyrics to make them about cake – “it’s my, it’s my, it’s my slice!”) I tend to stay pretty close to my comfort zone. I know Italian, I know white...

Native Foods’ Vegan “Eggs” Benedict

I started typing up this whole long thing about why I don’t eat eggs because recently, I was called “an extremist” for that very reason. I started writing about how maybe, when I post vegan recipes as I have been strictly doing since 2011, (you will...

Vegan Green Bean Casserole Pizza Recipe

Vegan Casseroles: Baked Penne with Pumpkin Cream Sauce

I had to share this one in the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck! Post all the memes making fun of it you want to, there’s no denying that pumpkin season is upon us. It’s in our coffee, our candles and yes, in our pasta bakes. And you know what, why not? Say it...

Vegan Casseroles: Truffled Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

I really couldn’t wait to share this recipe in the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck – both because it’s ridiculously delicious, and because it’s from my friend Julie Hasson’s new book, Vegan Casseroles: Pasta Bakes, Gratins, Pot Pies, and...
