Mushroom & Tofu Sausage Stuffing

There is no need to miss out on holiday stuffing on a plant-based diet. This simple stuffing stars my mushroom and tofu “sausage,” which not only adds a lot of flavors– and nutrition– but also gives the stuffing moisture. Stuffing doesn’t need to stuff anything!

Hemp Seed Parmesan Cheese

This is my favorite parmesan cheese-like topping for pasta, potatoes, salads, and soups. You can also make this recipe with the same quantity of walnuts if you prefer. I store my parmesan in a mason jar fitted with a top from a parmesan cheese bottle

Ricotta Cheese & Spinach Zucchini Roll-Ups

These plant-based ricotta and spinach zucchini roll-ups are perfect when you want Italian food without the pasta. The dairy-free ricotta cheese is made from almonds. We combine the cheese with chopped spinach and roll it up with lasagna-shaped zucchini slices. Top with marinara sauce and

Air Fryer Egg Rolls

Air Fryer Egg Rolls with Sweet & Spicy Chili Sauce

These egg rolls were the very first thing I cooked when I got my air fryer. I love that I can make a plant-based version of one of my favorite traditionally-fried foods without all the oil. Egg rolls are not authentic Chinese food but are
