Low Carb Vegan Nachos Con Queso

Low Carb Vegan Nachos Con Queso

I’ve been kicking around the idea of making some vegan keto nachos for a while, but for some reason kept putting it off. Well, I finally got myself in gear this afternoon and made myself some nachos. I’ve really been wanting nachos for a while, 

Low Carb Vegan Mediterranean Noodles & Lupini Beans (gluten free, low-FODMAP, soy free)

Low Carb Vegan Mediterranean Noodles & Lupini Beans (gluten free, low-FODMAP, soy free)

Do you ever see a new food somewhere, and then suddenly it’s all over the place? That happened to me with lupini beans. I saw them as a snack in the hippie section of my local grocery store and was really excited about the fact

I’m always on the lookout for plant based keto breakfast options. While I totally understand that any food can technically be a breakfast food, there’s just something about pancakes and hash browns and cereal that is distinctly “breakfasty.” Hot cereal is one of those foods in particular that reminds me of breakfasts as a kid. I loved both cream of wheat and oatmeal, and while neither are on the menu these days, there’s no reason I can’t make my own keto breakfast cereal. So, instead of oatmeal, we’ll be making a low carb vegan keto noatmeal. Continue reading Low Carb Vegan Coconut Lime Noatmeal (nut free, soy free, low-FODMAP)

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Okay, so, it’s not really frightful in the least bit. But, it is chilly out, and chilly weather always makes me want to bake thing, like cookies. I’ve always loved pinwheel cookies, which is irritating, as they are the most 

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin “Cheddar” Risotto

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin “Cheddar” Risotto

One of my favorite things about fall (well, in addition to basically everything else about fall) is that pumpkin recipes become totally acceptable. I’ve been working through a can of pumpkin puree over the past few days and decided that instead of making something sweet 

Low Carb Vegan Faux Feta

Low Carb Vegan Faux Feta

Sometimes, you just feel like having a little bit of cheese in a meal, and while there are some great alternatives in the market for cheddar, mozzarella and goat cheese, I have yet to find a pre-made vegan alternative to feta. Greek salads and spanikopita just aren’t aren’t the same without the tang of some nice, salty feta cheese, and since I really enjoy these dishes, I figured it was time to start making some feta that was compliant with a vegan low carb or ketogenic diet.

Low Carb Vegan Carrot Cake (gluten-free, nut-free, paleo)

Low Carb Vegan Carrot Cake (gluten-free, nut-free, paleo)

Every season has certain foods associated with it (at least in my mind), and spring is definitely the time for carrot cake. Apparently, in medieval Europe, carrots were used to sweeten cakes when sugar was difficult to come by. Funny how our palates changed to 

Low Carb Vegan Cupcakes – Matcha Coconut!

Low Carb Vegan Cupcakes – Matcha Coconut!

Back in the day when I was a barista, matcha lattes were one of my favorite things to enjoy. For those who don’t know, matcha is a green tea powder, and a matcha latte involves matcha, vanilla, sweetener and your milk of choice. I always

Lately, I’ve been going through old recipes and trying to update them to have better pictures, better baking instructions and to simplify things where possible. This recipe was originally called “low carb doughnut muffins” because I thought they tasted EXACTLY like cider doughnuts, but when I made them again yesterday, I realized they’re more of a coffee-cake flavor than anything. So, these low carb vegan coffee cake muffins were (re)born.  Continue reading Low Carb Vegan Coffee Cake Muffins (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Low Carb Vegan Cookie Dough

Low Carb Vegan Cookie Dough

Way back in the day, when I ate things like gluten and sugar, I was obsessed with cookie dough. As a child, I would sneak spoonfuls of it when my mom made cookies. In my teen years, I would buy whole tubes of it, just
