Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

The other day, I wandered around Trader Joe’s with a friend of mine and we ended up finding their maple oat milk. Of course, it was pretty high in carbs and definitely not keto-friendly, but it got me thinking, and inspired me to try to…

Vegan Keto Zucchini “Meatballs” (gluten-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Zucchini “Meatballs” (gluten-free, soy-free)

I’ve spent the last six months or so doing a crazy amount of cooking for my upcoming cookbook (!!!), and have been playing around with different types of meat substitutes that are both gluten-free and soy-free (as well as being low carb and vegan). Meatballs…

Low Carb Dairy Free Chocolate Fondue

Low Carb Dairy Free Chocolate Fondue

So, I’m not typically someone who gets all giddy at the idea of Valentine’s Day, but I do really like cheesy romantic-themed things, like a little fondue pot for two, with those tiny skewers and the little tea light to keep things warm. I actually happen to have one of those sets, and this year I’m determined to use it – not necessarily on Valentine’s Day, but definitely sometime this winter. So, as the inaugural dish for my little fondue mug, I present a low carb dairy free chocolate fondue dip. (more…)

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…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Low Carb Vegan Protein Balls

Peanut Butter Chocolate Low Carb Vegan Protein Balls

I’ve been trying to get away from buying protein bars because they’re so expensive, and the number of low carb vegan protein bars on the market is woefully small. In fact, there’s only one store anywhere near me that sells a vegan protein bar that…

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 today, I’d take a stab a a low carb vegan pumpkin risotto recipe. After all, sometimes you just want to make a vegan keto rice dish.

I had pretty high hopes for this low carb risotto, but it really exceeded my expectations!  I’m definitely going to make this for Thanksgiving this year, and probably a bunch more times before that. Vegetarian keto recipes are hard to come by, especially fall specific vegan keto recipes, so this is getting a gold star for sure.

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin Spice Fat Bombs

So, I’m going to do my best to refrain from posting a million pumpkin spice recipes between now and Thanksgiving, but realistically, there will be a few more. I got this adorable pumpkin candy mold today and decided my first task would be to make something…

Low Carb Vegan Smoked Salmon (Lox)

Low Carb Vegan Smoked Salmon (Lox)

As you can probably tell from previous posts, I really like creating recipes for breakfast and brunch foods. It’s not that I only eat brunch foods (though I totally could), so much as that there really isn’t a huge selection of low carb vegan breakfast…

Vegan Keto Bagels (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free)

Vegan Keto Bagels (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free)

These vegan keto bagels have been one of my absolute favorite recipes since coming up with them almost a year ago! Since that time, I’ve made changes and adaptations to the base recipe to improve it. Low carb vegan bagels were once just a fantasy, and so I was completely smitten with the original recipe. Of course, making these so often, I’ve discovered new tips and tricks to make these even better. So, this recipe just keeps evolving. Thank you to everyone who has helped shape these into something that is a pretty much perfect keto bagel that just so happens to be egg-free and dairy-free as well!

Vegan Keto Scallion Pancakes (nut free, allergen free, low carb)

Vegan Keto Scallion Pancakes (nut free, allergen free, low carb)

I’ve had a serious craving for scallion pancakes for a while now. Truly, these and veggie lo mein used to comprise the totality of my takeout orders. Actual scallion pancakes are made out of a dough that’s basically just wheat flour, oil, salt and scallions,…
