New Food Review: VeganEgg, by Follow Your Heart

What’s up, folks? I haven’t posted in a while, so hopefully my writing isn’t too rusty. I am just going to jump right into it. Are you a vegan? Do you like chickens? How about eggs? No? Don’t remember what they taste like? Well, let me give you a description of something that will help […]

New Foods: Earth Balance Vegan Cheez-Its

Earth Balance is a pretty darn awesome company. You probably know them now from their buttery spreads, which many people prefer to dairy butters or margarine. On top of being vegan, they are lactose, casein, and gluten free, contain no trans fats (one of the unhealthy kinds of fats), and can now be found in […]

Raw Vegan Green Hummus

I have created this recipe based on two inspirations: a raw hummus recipe I found in a cookbook once, and on one of my favorite hummuses, Trader Joe’s Cilantro Jalapeno hummus. The original recipe was made with red bell bepper and different seasonings. The recipe from the cookbook used different seasonings and red bell pepper, […]

Simple Vegan-Friendly Granola

Once while reading through an old cookbook, I found a great recipe and realized how easy it is to make your own granola. So, I was inspired to make my own! This is my spin on granola, with all my favorite additions highlighted: coconut flakes, golden raisins, and cashews.  The cool thing about granola is, […]

Two-Ingredient Vegan Whipped Cream

The title says it all. I totally improvised this one day after rummaging through my pantry. The coconut gives this whip a very unique, nutty flavor and creaminess to which I have developed a slightly unhealthy addiction. Put it on top of anything that beckons the addition of whipped cream! I like putting it on […]

Homemade Salsa: cheap, easy, and vegan.

Salsa is magnificent. It goes on ANYTHING. Trust me. I put it on my scrambles, salad, on noodles, sometimes even in soup. Food a little bland? Here’s some salsa. POOF now you have a good meal. It’s so versatile and there’s a million kinds. I’m not super into fruity varieties yet, so I usually stick […]

Vegan Butternut Squash Soup in Five Steps :D

Hooray for festivities! The good thing about having parents who own a garden is that sometimes when they visit, they bring you free garden goodies–like a few squashes from last season! I’ve had two butternut squashes and an acorn squash on my counter waiting for the opportune moment to cook them, which turned out to be today, […]

Easy Vegan Chili

I used to wonder why my mom was always to tired to cook when she came home from work, and I also used to wonder why people made such a big deal about not having time to always cook a home-healthy meal. Now I understand. College has made me a very busy person and after […]

Vegan Kidz Lunch Time!

Sometimes as a college student, you just need a break from all the stresses of school and be reminded of the fun times you had when you were a kid! At least, that’s how I view it. Even if most people didn’t dine on macaroni, finger sandwiches, or carrot sticks as a kid, it seems mainstream […]

Curry Tofu Scramble

This is a very simple, very tasty tofu scramble. You can eat it with pretty much any meal–in a breakfast burrito, in a salad, in a curry. I like it best as a side with another vegetable curry because it contrasts the soupiness of the curry well with a nice chewy texture. In any dish, […]
