Vegan and gluten-free celery soup recipe

The search for a gluten-free vegan celery soup in the store has been unsuccessful and finding a recipe for it has also proved challenging. Hence, I came up with my own recipe for it. Before going vegan, I had come up with a non-vegan celery soup recipe. Since it wasn’t vegan OR gluten-free, I had much experimenting to do, but I finally achieved the desired taste AND consistency for a vegan and gluten-free version. You are welcome to have it as a main dish (although I would recommend adding a protein source to it, like lentils and whole grains, to make it more filling and nutritious if you do t ..read more

2 easy vegan sour cream recipes

If you’re looking for a healthier and cheaper alternative to store bought vegan sour cream, you’ve come to the right post. In this post I share two recipes I make for vegan sour cream. The first recipe is cashew based and the second is tofu based. Both require a blender or food processor. The cashew one is better tasting (in my opinion) and the tofu one is creamier. The cashew one works best as a stand alone sour cream whereas I have found the tofu one works best when in a recipe. That being said, I encourage you to try both and see which one you like best. Cashew sour cream Cashew based sour ..read more

One night, during the COVID-19 lock-down, in an attempt to make a quick yet tasty gluten free mac and cheese for myself, I grabbed the only gluten-free noodles I had left.  They so happened to be the millet and brown rice ramen from Costco. Adding a few simple ingredients I had on hand, I threw something together that turned out quite good if I do say so myself. Check out the recipe for it below. Ingredients: -Millet and brown rice ramen (2 pieces) -1/2 cup shredded vegan cheese (my favorites are the Violife and Follow your Heart brands) -1 TB vegan butter (I’ve been loving Earth Balance ..read more

Vegan lentil meatless meatballs

I don’t know about you but pasta is a staple in our house. One of the easiest recipes to make with pasta is spaghetti, but what is spaghetti without the meatballs? Before going vegan, I made them with ground turkey.  Now, I make them with lentils! One of the perks about making them with lentils versus raw meat is that you can taste test as you are making it to see if you need to add anything.  That being said, this was a bit of trial and error getting the right consistency and the right flavor.  However, I’ve finally gotten it hubby and kid approved, so it is time to share the r ..read more

Vegan chickpea chicken salad

Before going vegan, chicken salad sandwiches were a staple in our household, especially in the summer. They are quick to throw together while being light and refreshing. Since going vegan, I have found that chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) make a great substitute for chicken. Not only are they a good source of protein, but they taste great and have a  suitable texture for this.  So, without further ado, let’s get into my recipe for veganized chicken salad sandwich filling!   Ingredients: -2 cups chickpeas/garbanzo beans (drained) -1/2 cup pickle relish -1/2 cup vegan may ..read more

Before going vegan, a frequent dinner in our house was taco nights.  They were easy to make, everyone loved them, and they were pretty cheap to make.  Since going vegan in January 2018, finding a homemade, easy, cheap, vegan recipe for taco meat that everyone enjoyed was a challenge.  One night, I threw some things together and hoped for the best and it was a success! I have tweaked the recipe since that fateful night and recently measured out the exact amounts so I can share this recipe with the rest of you. Vegan and non-vegan family members alike have enjoyed this recipe so i ..read more

Rebranding to Herbivore Homemaker

This blog was once called SheaButter Sarcasm Sunshine. But now it’s simply called Herbivore Homemaker.  Why the change? When I first started my blog on August 14th, 2017, I knew nothing about blogging but I wanted to give it a try.  I came up with a blog name that listed some of my favorite things because why not? I had a lot of varying ideas jotted down for my blog and wasn’t entirely sure what direction to take with it. In no particular order, I started sharing my thoughts and information with the internet (let’s be real though, it’s mainly been friends and family that have read my ..read more

DIY Liquid Dishwasher Detergent with Lemons OR LIMES

by Rebekah

As with most things I DIY I do it for two main reasons: to reduce toxins in my home AND to save money. I started hunting for a DIY dishwasher detergent recipe several years ago, and starting making my own about 2 years ago. After reading through many recipes, I came across one that primarily uses lemons. WHOLE lemons. That might not seem very exciting to you BUT I have a lemon tree that overproduces lemons so this recipe was a perfect fit. Although I do use my lemons in cooking and to make lemon juice (even freezing it into lemon ice cubes) I STILL have an overabundance (there’s only so much y ..read more

Home Birth: my experience with my 4th child

I want to preface my home birth experience by letting you know that my intent in sharing my experience is so that others can know that IT CAN be done, with a positive outcome for mom and baby, despite the pain of it.  That being said, I don’t believe in sugar coating anything, and although there are people with quick and calm home births, that isn’t the experience for everyone. I definitely felt calmer than I did at the hospital and remembering why I chose a home birth is why I chose to birth at home a second time (if you haven’t read my first home birth experience, you can read it here ..read more

Vegetable broth mix recipe (vegan and gluten free)

Why buy broth when you can make your own?  Homemade broth is one of those things I have been experimenting with for some time.  I tried making liquid recipes.  I tried dry recipes.  Finally, I tweaked a dry recipe I came across to my liking and use it in everything that calls for broth.  It is completely vegan and gluten free.  In addition, it works great in recipes that call for chicken/beef broth or stock.  I love being able to make my own broth because not only does it save money BUT I am able to control exactly what goes in it.  I prefer a dry recipe ..read more
