Easy Vegan Seitan Steaks

1M ago
If you’re new to plant-based proteins and are wanting something a bit heartier and substantial than my fan-favourite tofu steaks, then you should try this super easy seitan steak recipe. What is seitan? Seitan is a centuries-old method of using the protein in wheat flour, aka gluten (yes, the thing celiacs are extremely allergic to). Seitan is an extremely versatile form of plant-based protein that can be sliced, formed into nuggets, cooked as shreds, minced, or wrapped around a stick for a delicious street food. The term “seitan” originates from Japanese, but there are variations of wheat me ..read more

Bulgogi Tempeh
The Viet Vegan
by Lisa Le
2M ago
Although “bulgogi” means “fire meat” in Korean, this bulgogi tempeh uses the typical flavours of bulgogi in a skillet for a plant-based version. Eddie isn’t a big fan of tempeh because of the texture, but both Bean and I love tempeh, especially tempeh bacon. The storebought smokey tempeh is one of my favourite forms of vegan protein to add to a salad or serve with breakfast! This bulgogi tempeh has also come into my lunch rotation since it’s a quick 30 minute recipe. What is tempeh? I’ve been needing more variety than tofu (although this is still soy), so I’ve been opting for this bulgogi tem ..read more

Smashed Strawberry Iced Matcha

This smashed strawberry iced matcha uses the floral sweetness of strawberries to complement the nutty soy milk and earthy flavour of matcha. This recipe is made in partnership with Earth’s Own. I only work with brands I know, use, and love and Earth’s Own is a longtime favourite in this household! I’ve been seeing these beautiful cafe videos in Korea where people can get decadent drinks that look so delicious. But alas, are rarely vegan or realistic for me in this season of toddler mom life. So as per usual, I have to m.ake some for myself. Today I’m using Earth’s Own Soy Barista to create a ..read more

Get your greens in with this vegan nut-free, creamy green pasta! Customize the greens to whatever you’ve got wilting in the fridge and add some protein with beans and peas. Over the last year, I realized that my kid is obsessed with pasta and will eat pasta smothered in almost every sauce. I always have a jar of marinara in the pantry, but sometimes I like to make this vegan, nut-free, creamy green pasta sauce instead. I’ve made countless versions of this, and there are many different ways you can amp up the flavour or customize it to your liking. The recipe below is the “base” recipe, but yo ..read more

Instant Pot Rice & Beans
The Viet Vegan
by Lisa Le
8M ago
Inspired by arroz rojo, this is Instant Pot red rice & beans, a meal you can set and forget and come back to. I’ve been making a lot of Set It & Forget It type recipes because at this point in toddlerhood, it is necessary for survival. This is a recipe for when you’re craving something hearty and savoury. When I’m craving Mexican flavours but need it in one pot, this is what I make. By no means is this an authentic recipe, please do not mistake this for one. When I first started making this recipe, this was just rice to go with the Chipotle-style rice “burrito” bowls we often have on ..read more

Instant Pot Vegan Butternut Squash Risotto
The Viet Vegan
by Lisa Le
8M ago
Only 10 minutes of active cooking results in this deliciously creamy and cheesy dairy-free butternut squash risotto in the Instant Pot! Lately I’ve been a big fan of quick dinners that I can set up in about 15 minutes and then come back to when it’s dinner time. I’ve made a mushroom rice cooker meal and a lentil and barley one, and they’ve both been big hits with my kid (who naturally is a fiend for rice). Unfortunately due to the mushy texture of risotto, Bean was not a fan. They don’t like oatmeal or Vietnamese rice porridge much either, so that tracks. However, I was a big fan of this butt ..read more

Mushroom Rice Cooker Meal with quinoa, corn and lentils
The Viet Vegan

9M ago
I’m back with another rice cooker meal! This quinoa, corn, lentil & mushroom rice cooker meal is budget-friendly and an easy hands-off kinda meal. I’ve been making more of these set-it-and-forget-it kind of meals because as a toddler-mom, I just don’t have the time to stand by the stove to stir as much as I used to. What kind of rice cooker do I need? I’m using a Cuckoo rice cooker (affiliate link) which is a multi-functional rice cooker that builds up a pressurized steamy environment for the rice to cook, yielding fluffier grains. I find this helps with cooking the other grains faster an ..read more

This Lentil Barley Rice Cooker meal is an easy one pot side dish or main that is perfect for college students, busy parents, or just busy people. I’ve been finding myself in a cooking rut lately and I needed an easy dump and go meal that I could set and forget and come back to that my toddler would like. This lentil and barley rice cooker meal uses pantry staples that I almost always have on hand. It doesn’t require any time on the stove or chopping, and has fibre, protein, carbs, and even some veggies. Substitutions I have not tested this with any other combination, but here’s what I surmise ..read more

Copycat Vegan Ice Cream Cake
The Viet Vegan
by Lisa Le
11M ago
This is a copycat vegan ice cream cake with layers of dairy-free vanilla and chocolate ice cream, a fudgy chocolate ganache layer and a crispy cookie crumble layer. It’s the ice cream cake I grew up with, but vegan! Typically for the recipes I post on here, I like to test them a few times before I post them. However, my family can only eat so much ice cream at a time and vegan ice cream is expensive. Plus, in this economy? Frankly, I can’t afford it. But I wanted ice cream cake for my birthday, and a vegan version of this would have been around $50 for a small, 8 serving sized cake. So I vega ..read more
