Low Carb Vegan Comfort Food: Tomato & Tofu Stir Fry (番茄豆腐)

Low Carb Vegan Comfort Food: Tomato & Tofu Stir Fry (番茄豆腐)

Even though summer is right around the corner here in New England, it’s actually been a little chilly here and there. Not actually cold, but just nice enough that I can get away with cuddling under a blanket with a nice big bowl of vegan […]

Super Easy Low Carb Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust (nut-free, soy-free, coconut-free)

Like most North American humans, I enjoy eating pizza. A lot. It’s definitely up there in the top five for favorite foods. Of course, trying to come up with a vegan keto pizza crust has been a bit of a challenge over the years. I’ve […]

Easy Keto Nut Butter

Easy Keto Nut Butter

I’m always looking for vegan, keto-friendly snacks to enjoy from the comfort of my couch while watching TV. I also really like to drizzle nut butters on top of nice cream and over berries with coconut cream (so, so good). So, after realizing that buying my own keto-friendly nut butters forever was going to add up over time, I decided to try and make my own version. It’s not a perfect match, but it definitely comes close. The macros of the commercial version are a bit better, and the taste is a bit richer, but this isn’t too bad for a bit of a budget version!

No Bake Vegan Keto Lemon Squares (gluten-free, soy-free, paleo)

No Bake Vegan Keto Lemon Squares (gluten-free, soy-free, paleo)

There’s something I really want to get off my chest, and I’m not sure how everyone will take it. The truth can hurt, but I really feel it’s important to be open and honest, especially when it comes to food and diet. So, here goes: […]

Vegan Keto Coconut Matcha Bites (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free)

Vegan Keto Coconut Matcha Bites (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free)

Protein bars can get expensive, so I’ve really been trying to make my own protein bars and bites. It also cuts down on packaging waste, and provides far more flavor options than are available from commercially-produced vegan keto protein bars. I really like green tea and matcha-flavored anything, so I thought it would be fun to make my own vegan keto coconut matcha protein bites. (more…)

If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably noticed that I really like waffles. One of the first recipes I came up with for my cookbook was a waffle recipe, and I’ve posted several to this blog since. The thing about most waffles though, […]

Vegan Keto Cider Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Cider Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Fall is in the air, and so I’ve been playing around with fall flavors every time I cook or bake something. For baking, this pretty much just means cinnamon and nutmeg go into everything. I grew up within walking/biking distance of three different apple orchards, and so apple cider and cider doughnuts were a mainstay of my childhood autumns. Every year when September hits, I start to crave one of these doughnuts. Obviously a plant-based, gluten-free, keto-friendly doughnut isn’t on the market, so once again, I’m left to create my own. After some trial and error, I arrived at this delicious recipe for vegan keto cider doughnuts.
