These BBQ soy curls are baked or air fried to achieve a crispy texture on the outside. They’re chewy on the inside and so flavorful. The soy curls perfect for serving on a bun, in tacos or bowls, or as part of a barbecue spread. Plus, they’re easy to make—you can use homemade or store-bought barbecue sauce! Here I am again, with another simple vegan protein. I know I’ve shared a number of these lately, along with other staple foods and basics. But…

The annual birthday post. Last year I wrote my 10th annual birthday post. I’d started this blog tradition with the big 3-0. And here we are at the big 4-0, birthday post #11. To be honest, I haven’t known what to say this year. Part of me wants to be able to say that this particular number is arbitrary and not worth having special feelings about. I could tell you that today is just another day. But I won’t. It doesn’t feel like…

This vegan sheet pan gnocchi is an easy, hands-off dinner that is bursting with color and flavor. Roasting the vegetables and gnocchi separately ensures that the gnocchi stays nice and crispy. I joke a lot about how often I default to pasta for dinner. But what about gnocchi? Gnocchi is so good, so fast, and it’s filling and comforting in the same way that pasta is to me. But I just don’t think to buy or cook it as often. This vegan sheet…

These light, tender vegan strawberry muffins are the perfect muffin for spring. They’re full of juicy, fresh strawberries, and they’re so easy to prepare. Oh, these muffins. I made them for the first time about three weeks ago, in a fit of excitement about the beginning of strawberry season. I kept the recipe simple: basically, a vanilla muffin with chopped strawberries folded in and a bit of sparkling sugar on top. I was expecting to be happy with the recipe—I love both muffins…

Vegan buttermilk is the trick to making perfect vegan muffins, cakes, pancakes, cornbread, biscuits, and other quick breads. Learn how to make it with this simple recipe! I love any and all of the baked goods that qualify as quick breads. These include muffins, scones, cornbread, waffles and pancakes, banana bread and zucchini bread, many cakes, brownies, cookies, and more. All of these tasty breads use chemical leavening. They rise because of the chemical reactions that happen when a leavening agent—usually baking powder,…

This vegan dish of chickpeas à la King is cozy, comforting, and quite nostalgic for anyone who’s a fan of the traditional chicken recipe! It’s super quick and easy to make, and you can serve it over rice, toast, or whatever you like. I ate quite a few Stouffer’s frozen dinners growing up, and I loved them.
