    Easy Gluten Free, Vegan Mincemeat Pie Filling

    I love mincemeat pie. Like love love. It’s one of those great UK dessert dishes that makes use of a whole bunch of random dried fruits and makes them taste amazing. (If you love this type of recipe, or you just love dried fruit and you also love chocolate, try my gluten free, vegan version of tiffin, another traditional dessert from the UK) You can see the original mincemeat pie recipe being developed by some resourceful cook who just found out she’s having company. Let’s see, what do we have here, apples, dried fruit, sugar, and what the heck, let’s throw in some booze. Now we’ll put it in little…

    Gluten Free, Vegan Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These chocolate chip cookies are gluten free and vegan and taste like regular homemade cookies!! I know! I can hardly believe it either! But they are a huge hit with my gluten eating omnivores. And they all say not only are these cookies fantastic, but that you can’t tell that they’re gluten free and vegan. I even had a hard time rescuing enough cookies to take pictures for this post. Good gluten free homemade cookies were my  entire 2003 vision board. When I first went gluten free (almost 20 years ago!), I was sure I would never eat a normal cookie again. A lot has changed in the gluten free…

    Curry Carrot and Lentil Soup – Gluten Free & Vegan

    This Curry Carrot and Lentil Soup recipe is probably the recipe I share the most with my friends. You know, the recipe you have memorized because it’s so simple and the one you make all the time because most of your family really likes it? This one. I have scribbled this on more index cards and typed it out in more text messages than I can count. I have a similar recipe on the blog, but I wrote it many years ago when I lived in Thailand and the ingredients I was able to get there are not quite the same as the ones I find in North American grocery…

    Gluten Free & Vegan Crispy Date Balls – Dairy Free, Egg Free

    Date balls are a Christmas tradition from the era when people did Christmas visiting. At the beginning of the season, all the moms and grandmothers would make up a billion different squares and cookies and put them in the fridge or freezer to be served to company. Then they would all rotate through the different houses of their friends and family, and the lady of the house would pull out a big tray of all these different desserts. The date balls are one of my very favorites. They’re also one of the fastest and easiest to make. For years I made the traditional recipe, which calls for an egg, but…

    Gluten Free & Vegan Tiffin

    What is Tiffin? It’s a mixture of crumbled cookies and dried fruit coated in chocolate and pressed into a pan to harden. Some people call it fridge-cake. It’s originally from Scotland. How are these UK people so resourceful with their desserts?  Nothing goes to waste! Stale cake? Make trifle! Stale cookies? Make tiffin! You can really make tiffin with any combination of dried fruits and cookies. Most often it’s made with digestive biscuits and raisins, and if your Scottish grandmother made it, her recipe probably includes “a few handfuls of stale biscuits and a handful of raisins” but I made this Christmasy with ginger snaps, cranberries, and pecans. Many people…

    Easy White Bean Chili – Gluten Free & Vegan

    This is a fantastic and easy white bean chili soup. It’s gluten free and vegan, but will please even your gluten loving carnivore. Almost all the ingredients are pre-chopped and measured, so it’s just a matter of adding them to a pot. The directions are there to help you out, but honestly, almost the entire recipe is open cans, open bags, dump in pot, boil. You have to blend two tomatillos, but this step takes about 30 seconds. The timed out directions might give you slightly better results (like warming the cumin first) but aren’t really that necessary, so don’t overthink it or throw the whole thing out if you…

    Gluten Free, Vegan, Chocolate Cake – Dairy Free, Egg Free

    Hey friends!! I think you will really like this one. It’s simple, fairly inexpensive, and totally impressive. A gluten free, vegan, chocolate cake that actually tastes like a cake. It’s moist, and flavorful, and chocolatey, and cakey. There are no eggs, butter, or milk in it. And you can not tell. The regular version of this recipe is often called Depression Chocolate Cake. It was originally created for a world going through the Great Depression where staples like eggs, butter, and milk were scarce. It’s surprisingly amazing. Our fore-mothers were obvious geniuses in the kitchen. This version uses any cup-for-cup type gluten free flour for the same surprising amazingness. I’ve…

    Easy Indian Masala Sauce – Gluten Free and Vegan

    Okay, this is so not a traditional masala sauce. It’s a sauce for lazy cheaters who like an easy, tasty supper. It tastes like a really flavorful Indian Food sauce, lots of depth and flavor. It takes maybe 5 minutes to put together, and it’s naturally gluten free and vegan. When I make it, I usually stir in boiled potato chunks and chickpeas and serve it over basmati rice. Some nights, I use it as a really tasty noodle sauce. The Ingredients Garam Masala Garam Masala is a powdered spice used in Indian cooking. It’s a combination of a bunch of spices that you’d never find together in typical Western…

    Gluten Free Vegan Banana Muffins – Small Batch

    These gluten free vegan banana muffins are a must-have in our house so I make them often. I’ve always made them gluten free, but a few months ago I finally worked out a recipe that was both gluten free and vegan. They just taste like really good banana muffins. They’re light, and fluffy, and moist, and very tasty. And that’s good, because we eat them alot. One, because they’re an easy snack to grab; and two, because we keep our house pretty warm and bananas go brown very quickly. This is a small batch. Depending on how much batter you scoop into the muffin tins (and how many chocolate chips…

    Easy Chickpea Nachos for One – Gluten Free and Vegan

    When my twins were little, I pretty much lived on nachos. They were fast, easy, and they felt more like “real food” than the random pieces of toast or handfuls of other things I could quickly grab while chasing babies. Twenty two years later, I still love nachos. I have more time now, so I make better food choices (mostly), but when I treat myself, I want it to feel like a treat. These nachos are naturally gluten free, and switching out the cheese for a non dairy cheese shred like Daiya cheese makes them vegan. I also add chickpeas because, in addition to a protein boost, they honestly add…
