02 Nov Grilled Romaine with Vegan Creamy Cashew Caesar Dressing

Caesar salads are one of those great comfort foods that often remain elusive to vegans since it's so tough to replicate the depth of flavor that anchovy and parmesan bring to the table. This recipe aims to please both plant and meateater palates alike by giving some heft to the normally sad vegan caesars (through some serious flavor building). By charring the romaine the normal blank-slate and boring lettuce gets some serious body, and by whipping up a dressing with some of the best secret ingredients in a vegan's arsenal (creamy cashews, cheesy nutritional yeast, and umami bomb Worcestershire) paired with some briny capers (to give it some anchovy-esque goodness), we give the traditional dairy/fish dressing a serious run for its money. Add in some crunchy little croutons and fresh cracked pepper and you have one hell of an epic salad! Vegetarians and meat-eaters can top this with some real deal...

02 Mar Purple Kale Salad with Creamy Cashew Avocado Dressing

I can never get enough kale salad, so I'm always inventing new ways to mix up the same old bowl.

Now when I don't want to walk the three blocks to get it, I can make my own twist at home (but I would still walk a hundred miles for those Mexi nacho fries with avocado crema!). You can make this one vegan by omitting the cojita, but you'll need to up the salt to make up for the loss. [yumprint-recipe id='67']...

16 Jul Vegan Mac n’ Cheese

Vegan Baked Macaroni and Cheese Yield: 8 Servings Cook Time: 40 Minutes I love cheese so much it hurts. So when I started dating a fussy cheese-hating guy a couple years ago I was convinced that due to our polar opposite thoughts on dairy products we would never have a chance in hell of making it. But alas, we fell in love, and as the years passed I became increasingly tired (and felt guilty) for creatively finding ways to sneak butter, cheese, milk, and cream into most of his food and started to come up with alternative ways to mimic my much-loved decadent dairy experience. Mac n' Cheese is high on my list of ultimate comfort foods, and one that I just wouldn't ban from the kitchen, so I set out to make a vegan version that wouldn't leave me missing the regular one (and wanting to smack him for how he was stifling...
