Mom’s Sweet Potato Casserole w/ Sweet Vanilla Crushed Pineapple Topping (vegan)

In our last post I mentioned that we don’t know what’s in store for November, which is still 100% true. Most months we have all the recipes finished by the first week – yeah, not this month. Originally, we were going to make a bunch of Thanksgiving style recipes but… what if we still wanna…

Have you guys ever tried bao? If you have, I think you know why this is one of life’s most special foods. If you haven’t, the way I would describe them to the average American would be to say “bao are a type of bread, kind of like a hamburger buns, only they’re steamed instead…

Crispy Coconut Shrimp w/ Sweet Piña Colada Sauce (vegan & gluten-free)

If you can’t tell, we’ve been a little bit obsessed with vegan shrimp recently. Can you blame us?

Viet-Cajun Pineapple & Shrimp Fried Rice (vegan & gf)

“Wait wait wait… WAIT. Did you just say “Viet-Cajun” followed by “Vegan Shrimp? Are you guys insane?! Like, I literally don’t understand food anymore – things are and are not at the SAME TIME.

Shiitake-Miso Broth Soy Milk Ramen (vegan)

In my eyes, ramen is a complicated food. Specifically shaped noodles that are perfectly cooked, broth with such depth it’s almost impossible to tell what it’s made out of, and the right amount of the right kind of toppings that overwhelm neither the noodles or the broth, yet bring new flavors and textures into the…

I’m just saying,…

Banh Xeo w/ Nuoc Mam Cham – Vietnamese Crepes w/ Sweet & Tangy Fish Sauce (gluten-free, vegan, and sugar-free)

There’s not a dish that highlights France’s influence on Vietnam more than Banh Xeo – a golden Vietnamese crepe, colored with turmeric, that’s typically filled with steamed pork or shrimp and plenty of bean sprouts. Just think about it: a crepe in Vietnam. This food is the direct result of French colonization. Sure, there’s evidence…

Ever since falling in love with aquafaba’s magical abilities, I’ve been left with one question: “what the fuck do I do with all these chickpeas?” If I’m being honest, I don’t really like chickpeas. They’re not particularly bad, it’s just that they’re not particularly good either. They’re dry, wonky to eat (do I choose a…
