Maple Tempeh Sausage Sliders

I remember those late mornings at a random chain restaurant, dining on a breakfast plate full of eggs, toast, grits, and sausage – I always preferred sausage to bacon. Get outta here Bacon McGriddle! The sausage that reigns supreme in my eyes has always been maple sausage. It’s sweet like Autumn, smoky like a campfire,…

Salted Caramel Cornless Cake (lectin-limited, sugar-free, & vegan)

After our Cornless Bread recipe, I started to realize that maybe the world of baking isn’t impossible to dance around in, even with a strict sugar-free, vegan, and lectin-limited diet. It took a while, but through the month of November we discovered that the mixture of cassava & sorghum flour – in different ratios –…

Sweet & Savory Cornless Bread

I’m aware that it seems silly to make a food item based around something that I choose not to eat – i.e. cornbread – but, if I crave something, I make it work. Simple as ‘dat. A couple of weeks ago, Kim and I were testing out sugar cookies made from sorghum flour, through which…

Cabernet Cranberry Jam (sweetened with xylitol)

Unlike many children, I loved cranberry jelly growing up. You know, the jiggly one from the can? Clearly, there’s always been a few screws loose in my head. Nevertheless, I grew up to realize that not many people like cranberry jelly, which is a real shame, because cranberries are an overlooked fruit packed with antioxidants,…

Fluffy Lectin-Free Biscuits with Mushroom Thyme Gravy

I’m SO happy that November is here – it’s probably the best month for an American food blogger, given the entire country’s hype around food. November also happens to be our first magazine feature (did I spill the beans too soon?). That’s right, No Eggs or Ham will have a couple of recipes inside the…

Fluffy Sesame Muffins (sugar-free, grain-free, paleo, & vegan)

Hello October! It’s nice to feel your gentle, chilly breeze again. Along with the change of seasons comes my incessant desire to eat anything & everything sweet potato related: sweet potato pie, sweet potato soup, roasted sweet potato, mashed sweet potato – Autumn’s got me wantin’ it all. One of sweet potato’s most unique application…

Tempeh Sliders

Look at these bad boys; they’re healthy, protein-packed, simple, and only 20 minutes to make from start-to-finish. Les go! It all starts with fresh romaine leaves, chopped in half – if they’re as big as these ones – with the crunchy ends removed, as seen below. I was skeptical of “lettuce wraps” for the longest time,…

Asian Barbecue Sweet Potato Boats

I have a thing for sweet potatoes. Can you tell? How can I resist? Sweet potatoes form the perfect basis for my diet, as they’re tasty, easy to cook, cheap, and really good for the body. Like, really good! Tubers like sweet potatoes have been part of the human diet since the Paleolithic age, i.e.…

Coconut Ginger Sweet Potato Mash

BEHOLD, THE PURPLE SWEET POTATO Purple sweet potatoes may sound fancy, but simply sweet potatoes that contain more of the antioxidant anthocyanin – the agent responsible for this tuber’s purple shine – than others. While food bloggers may appear to champion the fanciest of fare, we love our lazy meals. I’m talking ‘bout meals we always have ingredients on hand…

Seared Tofu Spring Rolls w/ Sweet & Spicy Almond Butter Dip

If you’re a fan of Vietnamese food, like Kim and I are, you will have noticed something by now: Vietnamese cuisine is super simple. Most dishes contain few ingredients, basic cooking techniques, and pull from one core of flavors. Yet, despite the simplicity, the food manages to be complex on the tastebuds, exciting, and full…

Tempeh Bacon

  Being the first type of “vegan bacon” I ever tried, tempeh bacon holds a place in my heart- a place that’s more satisfied by tempeh bacon than actual bacon. Growing up I always thought bacon was great on hamburgers, but if I were to order a plate of breakfast, sausage was my protein of…

Cinnamon Toasted Coconut Cereal

Cereal has accompanied me throughout most of my life – as a kid, I sat with it in laughter as I watched morning cartoons, in middle school, I hurriedly poured countless bowls for myself before zooming out the door to catch my bus to school, and as an old teenager, I reached for boxes of…

Portobello Summer Tacos

These tacos are a fresh & vibrant invitation into a warm Summer. I understand that some of y’all may have been experiencing warm weather for a couple months now (#jealous), but I live in the Pacific Northwest, where the sun just made his first guest appearance a few days ago. Needless to say, we are…

Asian Tempeh Reuben

If a vegan person in love with Asian food moved to New York, this is exactly what that person would make. And while I have no desire to ever move to NYC, I am a guy with a big jar of kimchi and no idea what to do with it. Thus, the ideas of how to…

Chili Cheese Veggie Roast

Who likes simple meals that don’t compromise flavor?! *quickly raises hand*   To me, all a meal needs to be satisfactory are these crucial elements: crunch and/or chewiness, tenderness/softness, and a complementary sauce. Coming in for the crunch/chewy category, we have roasted brussels sprouts, giving us something to sink our teeth into. For the soft…

Smoky Pasta Salad (Vegan & GF)

Everyone is scared of pasta salad. Fact. For good reason too – who in their right mind boils pasta just to stash it in the chill chest afterwards?? Kim, nor myself, have ever been fans of pasta salad – i.e. we would NEVER purposely buy some in a restaurant or grocery store, which begs the…

Crispy Mushroom Bacon

3 ingredients. 30 minutes. No oink. Let’s get it. These baked shiitake mushroom slices are reminiscent of the thin, crispy, bacon my Dad made as a kid. Each slice is subtly chewy, golden brown, and laden with salty juices. Use mushroom bacon like you would nutritional yeast – on top of everything. Perfect on top…

Super Smoothie (Mostly Raw + Sugar Free)

I didn’t name it that to get attention you guys, this smoothie is seriously super, not to mention my breakfast of choice for the last 6 months, which is saying a lot for a guy who eats a different lunch and dinner practically every day. Why this smoothie? What’s so special about it? Let’s be real, it’s…

Chai Toasted Oats (Gluten-Free & Stomach Friendly)

Oats. They’re the centerpiece of many a vegan food blog. To be honest, I haven’t caught the wave of hype yet. Two hours after engulfing a bowl of oats leaves me feeling like a blob of setting cement, AND they don’t deliver much in the department of texture or flavor (yeah, maple/brown sugar is cool, but…

Saucy Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble is the creme de la creme of vegan cuisine: it’s tasty, hearty, and a protein-packed way to start the day (sorry not sorry for using lame, infomercial style catch phrases). Unfortunately, tofu scramble, like many tofu based dishes, often lacks umph – being subjugated to bland, textureless mush. Which is a darn shame, because I’m…

Curried Butternut Squash Polenta with Brussels

The best recipes start with this thought, “what the f**k am I going to do with this?” That, my friends, is how this recipe came about when the only items that caught my attention were a butternut squash, curry powder, coconut milk, and a bag of cornmeal I got on a whim one evening in…

Garlic Sriracha Hummus

Throw two popular trends together and this is what you get. In actuality, this recipe emerged out of necessity. See, if you’ve viewed some of my other recipes, you know that I’m a firm supporter of aquafaba – the liquid from a can of chickpeas. Although, when you continuously use aquafaba, those chickpeas start to…

Sweet Strawberry Jam

Nut butter and bread walk into a bar… Oh no. I can’t complete this joke. It’s just incomplete! Something is missing from the formula, what could it be? Man, my thoughts are in a jam. Wait a second, that’s it! Jam! This jam highlights the fruit (strawberries, in this case), takes about 10 minutes to…

Vegan Tofu Omelette

That’s right friends. Vegan. Omelette. How? Who? What? Don’t worry, all your questions will be answered in due time… and what better time than right now?! NONE. Let’s continue, shall we?

Vegan Sausage, Cheddar Biscuits, & Gravy

I’ve made vegan sausage & gravy in the past, but I’ve always skimped, buying store-bought vegan sausage and simply putting it over toast. If only I knew how fun, simple, and QUICK it was to, not only make my own vegan sausage, but also biscuits. Not to mention, gluten-free vegan cheddar biscuits! When Kim and…
