Vegan Keto Red Velvet Waffles (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Red Velvet Waffles (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

We’re on the eve of Valentine’s Day and I was craving something sweet that I could also use as an excuse to bust out my heart-shaped silicon mold to use for heart-shaped pats of buttery spread. So, I channeled my inner Leslie Knope and decided…

Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup (gluten-free, instant pot version)

Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup (gluten-free, instant pot version)

One of the questions I find in my inbox a lot is, “what do you eat when you’re sick?” My answer is usually just long the lines of “whatever I can manage,” but I thought I’d actually post one of my go-to  soup recipes for…

Vegan Keto Instant Pot Pilaf (gluten-free, paleo, nut-free)

Vegan Keto Instant Pot Pilaf (gluten-free, paleo, nut-free)

So, here we are with another instant pot recipe. Since receiving one for Christmas last year, I have been using it pretty much every day. Typically, I’ve just been making cauliflower rice-based dishes (curries, the chili from my cookbook, sloppy joes), but the other day at the grocery store, I was walking down the aisle with the rice mixes, and the pilaf caught my eye. So, I thought that I would make a vegan keto instant pot pilaf because 1) the instant pot does make things very quickly with very little oversight needed and 2) I like the little mechanical song it chirps when the lid goes on.

Vegan Keto Braised Sauerkraut & “Sausage” (gluten-free, low carb, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Braised Sauerkraut & “Sausage” (gluten-free, low carb, soy-free)

Cold weather for me means lots of slow cooker recipes that are rich and filling and don’t require too much chewing. Why that last bit? I have no idea, but there’s something about softer foods that just feels more wintery to me. I just want…

Vegan Keto Buttery Noodles & Cabbage (gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Buttery Noodles & Cabbage (gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

If you follow me on instagram at all, you probably know that I LOVE cabbage. I eat it almost every day in some form or another, but I usually end up just sauteing it or making my favorite crack slaw. Sometimes, though, I want something…

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Oh, look, I’m finally posting Christmas things just a few days before Christmas. I’m the worst. Because my dad’s family is Polish, I grew up eating a lot of Polish foods, especially at Christmas time. These cookies are  a staple from my childhood. They’re called Kołaczki Świąteczne (ko-watch-ki shvee-ohn-tetch-ne …ish) and are really easy to make, but super delicious. This vegan keto kołaczki recipe uses few ingredients and is nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. It’s perfect for the holidays!

Vegan Keto Zucchini Noatmeal Breakfast Bars (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, low-FODMAP, paleo)

Vegan Keto Zucchini Noatmeal Breakfast Bars (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, low-FODMAP, paleo)

Breakfast can be one of the hardest meals to replace when going vegan keto, especially if you’re used to eating convenience foods. While I do enjoy a nice, hearty bowl of noatmeal or chia pudding, some days you just want something a little more substantial…

Vegan Keto Tempeh Satay With Peanut Sauce

Vegan Keto Tempeh Satay With Peanut Sauce

I really love peanut butter and all things associated with this delicious food. It’s a solid source of lysine, an essential amino acid found primarily in beans (for plant sources, at least). It can be difficult to obtain on a vegan keto diet, so I’m…

DIY Vegan Keto Instant Mushroom Coffee

DIY Vegan Keto Instant Mushroom Coffee

I love coffee. If you follow me at all on instagram, you’re probably already well-aware of this. I also love hiking and traveling and always like to make sure I can have a tasty cup of coffee in the morning, no matter where I am. Over the years, I’ve found a few instant coffees I really love, but it was starting to think that maybe I should just be making my own. After all, what better way to be able to customize it to my tastes and needs? I really like the mushroom coffees from Four Sigmatic, so I thought I’d riff on my favorite one of those! (more…)

Low Carb Vegan Peanut Ginger Cold Noodle Salad (gluten-free, grain-free, keto-friendly)

Low Carb Vegan Peanut Ginger Cold Noodle Salad (gluten-free, grain-free, keto-friendly)

It’s getting hotter out where I live, and some days, having to turn on the stove just doesn’t seem like a good idea. So, I’ve been making a lot of meals lately that require zero cooking. I really, really like peanut butter and peanut butter-adjacent…
