A classic American dessert goes vegan! This vegan sweet cherry pie screams summer. It’s made with a traditional, flaky, double pie crust. What fruit dessert says summer more than sweet cherry pie? I made this beauty on the 4th of July this year, while I was staying with friends near the beach. It was far from my first cherry dessert—cherry cobbler, cherry bars, and cherry chocolate ice cream are all favorites—but it was my first vegan cherry pie. Success! Yes, this dessert is…

These vegan tempeh meatball subs are made with protein-packed, savory tempeh meatballs and a creamy cashew mozzarella sauce. A plant-based spin on classic comfort food. Cashew mozzarella and tempeh meatballs are the two homemade “basics” I’ve been most excited about lately. So I guess it was only a matter of time before both found their way into a saucy, melty, savory tempeh meatball sub. It’s hard to do justice to how delicious and satisfying these subs are. The tempeh meatballs are deeply savory…
