20-Minute Vegan Smoky Red Pepper Pasta
The Full Helping
by Gena Hamshaw
4d ago
This vegan smoky red pepper pasta takes only twenty minutes to prepare, but it’s so vibrant and flavorful. The creamy, roasted red pepper sauce is both dairy-free and nut-free. Best of all, the pasta can be made with simple ingredients that you may have in your pantry already! I always say that my pasta is my default meal, which is true. Yet this makes it sound as though I have an easy time creating pasta dishes, which isn’t true at all. Actually, I think it’s pretty tough to whip up pasta meals that are as simple as they are good. There’s a reason that marinara sauce is my go-to: it’s easy ..read more

These crispy baked vegan candied walnuts will add sweet and savory flavor, along with healthful Omega-3 fatty acids, to salads, roasted vegetable dishes, whole grains, and more. They’re a wonderful topping or snack, and they make excellent edible gifts, too! It was only a week ago that I was here chatting about vegan candied pecans. So you may be wondering, why candied walnuts, too? The honest answer is that, when I tested the candied nuts, I wasn’t sure which was going to work better, pecans or walnuts. I basically prefer the buttery taste and creamy texture of pecans. I also like their wide ..read more

These crispy baked vegan candied pecans are the best I’ve ever had! A mixture of aquafaba and powdered sugar, plus oven baking, is key to achieving a super light and crispy (not sticky!) texture. The candied pecans are great for snacking, to use in recipes, or to give as holiday gifts. One month ago would have been such a perfect time to publish this post. Candied pecans, and candied nuts in general, make wonderful holiday gifts. They’re also a lovely party favor or small gift for a friend who’s hosting a gathering.

I love the versatility and incredible nutrition of cabbage! These 20 healthful cabbage dinners and sides will help you to incorporate this humble and inexpensive vegetable into more of your meals. I get so excited when I read about, think about, or prepare any recipe with cabbage. Yes, cabbage. Within the vegetable kingdom, I know that cabbage isn’t always greeted with as much excitement as some of its neighbors. Even among crucifers, cabbage is unflashy. It seems to receive less attention than broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower. There is no reason for this, however. Cabbage mo ..read more

These baked, American-style teriyaki tofu cubes are easy to make in your air fryer or oven. They’re a perfect, homemade alternative to pre-seasoned and baked tofu from the store, and they’re super versatile. Add them to bowls, stir fry dishes, or noodles for extra protein! One of my small wins of 2022 was that I got back into the habit of preparing homemade staples. What are staples? There isn’t a single or obvious answer, but for me, “staples” are everyday, household items that I use to build or enhance my meals. Staples are items that I tend to have on hand at all times, because I turn to t ..read more

How to Make Homemade Vegan Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a classic and beloved Italian dessert that features layers of custard and coffee-soaked sponge. This post will show you how to make homemade vegan tiramisu that’s delectably creamy and entirely dairy-free. This version uses tender, melt-in-your mouth vanilla cake as a sponge, which is easier to make from scratch than ladyfingers! I’ll never forget the first time I saw tiramisu. I was at an Italian restaurant in my grandmother’s neighborhood, probably six or seven years old at the time. My grandmother—my Yaya—ordered it for dessert. I asked about what she was having. “Tir-a-mis-u ..read more

This vegan farro bowl is a wholesome, flavorful, and filling meal that can be prepared ahead of time for a busy schedule. It’s full of nutrient-dense plant-based ingredients, including vegetables, grains, and legumes. Pickled red onion and a lemony tahini dressing add bright flavor, while chopped pistachios add crunch! This recipe was originally going to be titled “fall farro bowl.” I couldn’t help but laugh as I started to write about it on December 14th. In fairness, I did actually make it and eat it back in the fall. Yet publishing this post has been a different story. All of this is a per ..read more

This Dijon lemon tahini dressing is so simple to make! It requires only five ingredients (plus water), and you don’t need a blender to mix it. Keep it in your fridge for salads, bowls, drizzling onto grains and roasted vegetables, and much more. As I was writing this post, I thought to myself, do I reeeeally need to be posting another tahini dressing? I have, after all, posted many a tahini dressing on this blog. Yet any time I find myself making something again and again, I know it’s a recipe that I should probably share. What’s useful to me might be useful to someone else, or useful to seve ..read more

Quick pickled onions instantly transform salads, bowls, and sandwiches with a burst of flavor. They’re an easy way to elevate vegan meals! My go-to recipe takes only 10 minutes to prepare. It’s easy and reliable, and I share options to use it with other vegetables, too. If the past week has involved any amount of holiday cooking, you may find yourself in need of a week off. My Thanksgiving week actually didn’t involve any cooking. But it did involve a sincere effort to slow down, take a few days off, and savor time with my mom. For me, this also meant a break from the kitchen. I worked on def ..read more
