Apples with vegan cheddar cheese are a match made in heaven due to the contrasting flavors of sharp cheddar and tart apples in this Apple Cheddar Galette recipe. Be sure to use a sharp vegan cheddar cheese like Daiya or Cheezly Mature White Cheddar for best results. I used Daiya cheddar for this particular galette.

Mango and coconut are good friends and some of my favorite foods so why not pair them together in this Coconut Mango Pancake recipe? These vegan pancakes feature coconut milk, shredded coconut, mango chunks, just the right ratio of whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour and a touch of vanilla extract to further unify the flavors. It's the closest a pancake breakfast will ever get to feeling like a tropical paradise.
This Blueberry Frozen Soy Yogurt recipe is super simple to make. It's just unsweetened vegan soy yogurt mixed in an ice cream maker with the fruit jam of your choice. I happened to have blueberry jam when I made this batch. Be sure to use quality soy yogurt. There are some brands out there that don't taste anything remotely like yogurt and they are to be avoided. It's also recommended using quality jam made with sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. Be sure to use unsweetened soy yogurt or else your frozen soy yogurt will come out too sweet. This recipe is already on the sweet side so the fruit comes through with intensity.

When this Sweet Potato Pecan Ice Cream recipe is mentioned to passerby one of two things usually happens: people either express great joy or wince and convulse. Sweet potatoes are pumpkin 2.0 people! They have a much more complex flavor than pumpkin so I just cut to the chase and paired them with candied pecans to make this vegan ice cream. You could substitute pumpkin purée if you really wanted to but it's not recommended unless you're stuck on a dessert island with nary a single sweet potato in sight.

These Zucchini Carrot Muffins are moist and delicious. They are a popular treat among my vegan and non-vegan friends. They seem to be more delectable with fresh zucchini and carrots from the garden. Enjoy! The recipe was adapted from here.

Trying to find a "from scratch" recipe was difficult, finding a vegan recpe was impossible! So after much research I finally dreamed (literally) up a recipe that is truly from scratch, truly vegan, truly easy and most importantly, truly delish! This Strawberry Fields Forever Cake comes out so moist that frosting is definitely optional.

Chai is such an awesome hot beverage that it dominates the hot beverage scene to the point of where other hot beverages are jealous. So why not make it dominate the cold and icy scene as well by making it into ice cream? Then add chocolate? Well okay then! This Chai Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe uses non-dairy milk and cashew butter for it's creaminess. Raw cashew butter essential for this vegan ice cream due to it's neutral flavor; roasted cashew butter is not recommended because it has undesirable bitter flavors that will throw off the flavor profile.
This Cherry Candied Almond recipe is an excuse for me to combine two of my most favorite flavor combinations: cherries and almonds. I used brown sugar and olive oil for a more complex sweetness profile and just the right amount of almond extract to bind the cherry and almond flavor in holy matrimony. Try these as a relatively guilt-free vegan snack, add them to salads or sprinkle them on your ice cream.
One of the best parts of growing up was waking up to the aroma of Dad's legendary pancakes every Sunday. After gorging on them doused with maple syrup, the fam and I would go hiking on Mt Tam. Like clockwork, I'd eventually proceed to have an enormous mysterious energy crash that would reduce me into a quivering mess that Mom would call 'the shakes'. I later found out this was because the maple syrup I loved so much was causing my blood sugar to peak, then crash due to it's high glycemic index. Now I'm a lot more careful by making sure that I get some veggie sausages and go easy on the maple syrup. Agave syrup has a significantly lower glycemic index than maple syrup. Adding maple extract to it makes it a delicious maple syrup substitution, as shown in this recipe. Check out our article on sweeteners and glycemic index to see how different sweeteners stack up.

Having Mexican grandparents who have never even heard of tofu, the idea of this amazingly simple Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding recipe is, in my kitchen, kind of a bittersweet culture clash. But it's easily the most delicious and simple culture clash you'll ever taste and NO ONE will know it's vegan unless you tell them. You need only put aside about 10 minutes to prepare this.

Churros are so good and such a rare treat that it's always a sign of good luck to actually find them. Traditionally they're made with eggs so vegan churros are an even more rare find. This vegan Churro recipe features sugar and cinnamon for churriffic flavor and flax as the primary binder. It's important to use the biggest pastry bag star tip you can find and to go easy on the frying until they're just barely golden brown so they're not too crisp. A candy thermometer is crucial for best results. Enjoy these churros with Churro Chocolate Sauce that's enhanced with the creaminess of non-dairy milk and just a pinch of cayenne.
This Rice Crispy Treat Cupcake recipe is the first thing I made after ordering Dandies Vegan Marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy. I feel like a kid again. Vegan baking doesn't get much easier than melting margarine, marshmallows, adding vanilla extract then mixing in puffed rice. Making the ganache is slightly more involved but still simple. Be sure to make these as close to your eating occasion as possible because Rice Crispy Treats love to dry out. If you need to make them a day or so beforehand, keep them in an air-tight container.
This Cornmeal Spelt Pizza Crust recipe is one of the fastest, easiest crusts around because it doesn't need lots of kneading and it doesn't require yeast. Although it's not gluten free, it does have very low amounts of gluten which is good if you're trying to cut back on it due to food allergies. This recipe makes a vegan crust that is 12 to 14 inches. This dough can also be refrigerated for later use.

These chewy Pecan Caramel Chews are reminiscent of those little caramels you used to get from trick or treating when you were little- except they're packed with pecans and dipped in chocolate. Be sure to use a candy thermometer with this vegan caramel recipe for best results. If you like your caramel extra soft or extra hard, adjust the caramelization temperature 10F lower or 10F higher respectively.

I know that one day I won't have access to my favorite bagel place on Bedford ave in Brooklyn on my way home from the bars to grab a late night snack. This Everything Bagel recipe will hopefully keep me content in those times. Enjoy these vegan bagels with Tofutti cream cheese, Creamy Cashew Cream Cheese, my more involved Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese or whatever else floats your fancy. I've designed these bagels in the authentic NY style which uses barley malt, also known as malted barley. Barley malt is highly recommended but if you don't have it just use an additional one-half Tablespoon sugar in it's place. Be sure to allow ample time for this recipe- it takes about two hours. If you live further than two hours away from New York City, this recipe will be easier than flying there for the flavor.
