Plant-based Mayo

Hey yo! It’s plant-based mayo!!! :)

I have been working on a mayonnaise recipe for quite some time. I recently taste-tested my recipe with my family.  On taste test, various family members liked it better than Vegenaise, but I know everyone’s taste buds are different.  You may try it for ...

Plant-based Feta Cheese

Plant-based Feta (is definitely bett-a/-er!!!)

Those of you who have been following me since my other blog are quite aware that I love Mediterranean food, which often calls for feta cheese.  I’ve been making plant-based feta cheese for quite sometime using tofu.  However a flavoring ingredient, ...

Caprese Salad (Plant-based)

Salad: Caprese (…make it with ease!)

Without sounding like a broken record, sometimes I just eat a salad for dinner.  There are a few I absolutely love.  My top choices are my taco salad, my rainbow salad with lemon tahini dressing, my plant-based Caesar salad, and this one — my Caprese ...

Buttermilk and Creamer (Plant-based)

Plant-based Buttermilk or Nondairy Creamer ( … a recipe redeemer!)

Plain Plant-based Yogurt

Plain Plant-based Yogurt (…that’s truly covert!)

I’ve been making plant-based yogurt successfully since summer 2013.  Before that, I had true failures and would give up and come back to try again from time to time.  I narrowed my failures down to three possible reasons: 1) Maintaining a temperature ...

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (Plant-based)

Vanilla Ice Cream (…Yes, with the bean!!!)

I like ice cream as much as the next person, but the dairy version has never agreed with me.  I like plant-based ice cream, but the price never agreed with me. (Ha!)  I also do not like feeling like I’m eating an overabundance of sugar.  So, those are ...

Orange Cream Sherbet (Plant-based)

Orange Cream Sherbet (Will make you say “What!?!)

I haven’t screamed for ice cream in a good, long time.  Why?  The cow’s milk makes me sick in every way once I partake.  If it’s a vegan variety, then usually it costs a small fortune and perhaps that’s why I don’t think it ...
