Loaded Baked Potatoes

These loaded baked potatoes are new favorite at our house. They’re so easy to make and you can play with the toppings to change them up. I went pretty unconventional by topping these with kale chips and a delicious cilantro cashew cream that is to die for. I also topped them with a “Parmesan” from Oh…

Creamy Avocado Pasta -- Epicurean Vegan

Creamy Avocado Pasta

Avocados are incredibly versatile. They work in desserts such as mousses and cupcakes, in salads, dips, and spreads. Heck, you can make a facial out of it! Well, they also make the ideal pasta sauce. They’re very healthy too. Did you know they have more potassium than bananas? Yep, that’s 14% compared 10% in bananas….

Vegetable and Baked Tofu Salad -- Epicurean Vegan

Vegetable & Baked Tofu Salad

Lunches are sometimes a struggle for me to come up with. I’m usually not one for leftovers (unless it’s the cashew mac) but I do like to throw together sandwiches. However, those can get boring, so I came up with this veggie-cashew-tofu salad that is fabulous on bread, crackers or in a wrap. I love…

Vegan and Gluten-Free Pad Thai -- Epicurean Vegan

Vegan & Gluten-Free Pad Thai

This Pad Thai is pretty nontraditional, not just because it’s vegan, but also because I didn’t go with the usual veggies such as bean sprouts. Plus, I certainly didn’t go with the typical thin rice noodle; I opted for a heartier, thick cut one. So it is really Pad Thai? Well, sure! It’s my version and it…

Vegan and Gluten-Free Falafel with Yogurt-Tahini Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Vegan & Gluten-Free Falafel with Yogurt-Tahini Sauce

You may be surprised how easy falafel is to make at home. Plus, you can play with the spices and ingredients to suit your fancy. One thing I noticed, is that they are typically sauteed in a skillet with lots of oil, which is something I try to avoid doing too often. They’re also not…

Thug Kitchen Cookbook Trailer {explicit}

I never thought I’d have the word “explicit” in a blog post title, but there’s a first time for everything. I LOVE this book trailer for the October 7 release of Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a F*ck. It’s my favorite. The more I watch it, the funnier it is. If you’re easily offended by…

This has been a favorite at our house for some time now. I found the original recipe on Pinterest, but have just tweaked it a little here and there. I also double the recipe because it makes great leftovers. I like to serve this with some tortilla chips, cilantro, avocado and vegan sour cream, but…

Black Rice and Lentil Thai Bowls with Cashew-Coconut Curry Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Black Rice & Lentil Thai Bowls with Cashew-Coconut Curry Sauce

You’re going to need a big bowl to fit in all this goodness. It’s easy to go overboard with different veggies and toppings, but I think I found a great combination for these Thai bowls. Not only are they vegan, but they’re gluten-free too. The flavors of the sauce mingle beautifully with the steamed cauliflower,…

Hearty Tuscan Chili -- Epicurean Vegan

Hearty Tuscan Chili

I like to imagine the posh Italian ski resorts would serve something like this, or at a cafe where snow is lightly falling in Milan. With a nice glass of red wine, this flavorful stew is perfect for a fall or winter evening with friends. This would also be great for tossing in the crockpot and…
