    I just don't think you can go wrong with the combination of apples, cinnamon and raisins. In fact, if you are baking egg-free sweet breads, cakes and muffins, apples are one of your best culinary friends. They help to bind and add texture and flavor that is not too overpowering (you could use an extra pinch of cinnamon if you wanted more of a kick) and create a light springy texture. If you need to whip up a treat for anyone with food allergies, these are fantastic. I have to say, though, I served these up to a ton of my toxic omnivore friends and they gobbled them up with glee.

    Recipe #449548

    This zesty carrot, broccoli and bean shoot salad fits the piggy bill, with a well coated mix of carrots, broccoli, cucumber and bean shoots that creates a crunchy tangy taste sensation that is perfect for those Summer barbecues we all look back on fondly once the warm weather has long gone and the Winter chill sets in. What I love about salads is that they are so simple; and offer infinite possibilities for allergy-friendly meals the whole family can enjoy. You can dress this salad up with some chopped raw nuts and seeds. But as this recipe stands, it is a fantastic vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free and nut-free salad that keeps me in love with raw vegetables.

    Recipe #448914

    I post this simple little Japanese seaweed salad in honor of my friend Mika. Mika is a phenomenal cook, with a natural flare for flavors. Of all the incredible dishes she has shared with me, this one will always be my favorite. Seaweed and cucumber salads are always bursting with flavor, but they are often made with sauces that contain a lot of sugar. We have modified a traditional favorite using fresh raw lemon juice and agave nectar. This is a quick, easy and a spectacular introduction to seaweed. Give it a go. It is irresistibly delicious!

    Recipe #448500

    I recently shared this potato salad with my friends Kris, Michelle, Emily, Nicole, and my father-in-law, Bob; and the reaction was unanimous–“Oh Wow! I could eat this salad every day. This is a keeper. You need to put this on your site!” At the risk of appearing unashamedly self-congratulatory, I have to agree with my discerning friends. This potato salad has a creamy yet crunchy texture, with a zesty flavour that strikes a nice balance between sharp and sweet. It’s a wonderful example of how this quick raw vegan mayonnaise can act like the little black dress in your culinary wardrobe. With the right accessories —some fresh crisp vegetables and the right amount of sea salt and cracked pepper —the simple becomes the sublime, and this little potato dish is dressed to impress. Snouts far and wide agree —this recipe is a stunner, a winner, and not to be missed.

    For those of you who are not familiar with fruit mince pies, they are part of the Christmas tradition in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. In the spirit of "quick and easy" I have blended together a fruit mixture that is ready in five minutes. I kept the blend very subtle, but feel free to add the spice quantities that tickle your fancy and make your taste buds dance. I also made mini mince pies using shallow half mini-muffin trays. These tiny pies can be devoured in two bites of Heaven. They are not too rich, not too sweet; but juuuuust right. These allergy-friendly (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free) vegan mince pies are quick and easy, and absolutely delicious - just the perfect treat to end 2010 with.

    So, when I set about creating an allergy-friendly shortbread recipe that my niece could indulge in this Christmas, it was quite a frustrating endeavor. Thankfully, there are some wonderful vegan spreads on the market that work quite well. My favorites are the Earth Balance vegan buttery sticks and Nuttelax spread. Both work well in this recipe. But if you are not refraining from dairy or need to make these soy-free, feel free to use conventional butter, which will make these shortbread cookies taste even better. I have deliberately chosen to use coconut sugar in this recipe, as it adds a gorgeous caramel-like quality that comes the closest to replicating the richness of butter. But if you want to make these more forgiving on the purse strings, feel free to use conventional cane sugar. The secret ingredient in this blend is the vanilla extract and lemon zest. If you want these really lemony, feel free to add more zest, But two teaspoons was juuuuust right for me.

    Recipe #444835

    This vegan incantation of my mom's sensational brandy cream recipe can be made in five minutes and is utterly divine. This cream is delicious poured over Christmas pudding, fruit cake or berries. Or, try the "scoff-straight-out-of-the-blender" approach that I have been sprung indulging in this week! I deliberately kept this blend mild to accommodate children, and those people not fond of a really strong brandy flavor. But if you are like my family and can't get enough brandy - feel free to adopt my mother's approach, and free-pour like an alcoholic bartender and enjoy the ride.

    This home-made cranberry sauce can be made in minutes; is ridiculously easy; and absolutely scrumptious. Once you make this, you will never be caught dead buying a jar of pre-made cranberry sauce again. I have always loved cranberry sauce, and this blend is a winner. I have deliberately kept it very basic. I just love the simplicity of the flavors - the hint of spice that is lifted with the zest of the oranges. But feel free to jazz this up; blend and taste; and add in the quantities of cinnamon, ginger and sweetener that work for you. This was my perfect blend. But you might want more spice. I liked just a hint, in order to let the cranberries have their moment. Just remember that the flavors will infuse in the fridge. Like a good sangria - this actually tastes better with time. If you can wait that long! Make a double or triple batch and take as glorious home-made gifts for those Christmas parties this year. This sauce is fantastic for the Christmas table.

    Recipe #444596

    This dish is literally child’s play – homage to the basics: simple, fun, healthy and happy. It really is the embodiment of blend and live. Just throw everything in your blender and puree until smooth. It takes less than 5 minutes. How easy is that? More importantly, it is absolutely delicious; and dare I say it, downright impressive. This pie has been a staple treat in my family for about 30 years. Mom found this recipe in an old Southern cookbook at a second hand book store on a trip to New Orleans back in the 80’s and we have been chowing down with joy ever since! The cookbook is long gone, but the memories still remain. Over the years mom and I have experimented and adapted this recipe using natural sweeteners, dairy-free milks and gluten-free flours. For those of you not on a restricted diet, feel free to use regular cow’s milk, wheat flour and sugar. However, I can honestly say that it tastes better this way, and we all know it is more healthy.

    This vegan chocolate mousse is a beacon of hope for even the most self respecting 1000 calorie mousse devotee. Everything comes to the party to create the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. The tofu gives you some protein, and that lovely creamy texture that gets better when set. The cocoa adds that vital decadence that is a prerequisite in any great chocolate mousse, and the nut butter and vanilla give it an added dimension that stops it from being flat. Just a touch of agave to sweeten the deal, and some chilli for a final kick. I am not really a peanut butter fan for many reasons and do not use it very often. But I can’t deny the flavor it brings to this. I prefer to use raw almond butter as a healthier option. Hazelnut butter works well too. It is all a matter or personal preference. You can also make this mousse without the chili. It still tastes wonderful, but I find that the heat lifts the heaviness of the cocoa and just gives the whole taste sensation an extra burst.

    Do yourself a favor and partake of this simple rustic treat inspired by the fabulous spud. As anyone will happily agree – a spud is never a dud; and these mashed spuds are simple and sublime. There are a ton of fantastic skordalia recipes out there. A lot of them use crusty bread, which is of course, is a recipe for disaster, for those of us snouting in the gluten-free trough. I like this simple easy alternative that uses almonds. I like to put my spuds through the ricer to get a little air in them. It also creates a fabulous texture that looks a bit more interesting than your standard clumps of potato. This dip is extremely versatile. It is fantastic spread on grilled vegetable kebabs; wonderful as a paste spread for fish; and delicious served with crusty bread. It is also a sensational healthier alternative to the standard creamy mashed potatoes. If you are serving it as a dip or paste you can afford a richer taste as you will only be eating a little. But if you are serving this as

    There are a ton of good vegan mayonnaise recipes out there. But I keep coming back to this recipe I adapted from a vegan camp I went to about ten years ago. It is mild, creamy, and delicious. As usual, I have listed quantities as a guide only. I tend to add in the lemon juice, vinegar and salt at the end, and keep tasting in between each addition. Every batch yields a mayo of a slightly different personality, depending on my mood, and what I am going to use it for. But the quantities I have provided will keep you on the right track. Follow them, and you will get a mayo that you can play with.

    Recipe #443684

    OK – So this shake is absolutely scrumptious. I cannot rave enough about it. This shake is decadent, rich, creamy, and delicious. If you want to make this shake colder, add in some ice cubes. If you want it richer, feel free to get a bit more heavy-handed with the Cocoa – that is for you self respecting chocoholics out there – motto being “the richer the better”. If you want it sweeter, feel free to tempt fate. But I will warn you – for me, this shake got sweeter the more I drank it. And because I was a stellar pig and devoured the whole trough on my own (two full glasses), I found that less, really is more! My sister TOTALLY disagreed and could have had more of her chocolate rich version! Either way – I’ll take out a stake in this shake!

    Recipe #443683

    If you have been searching for the easiest fruit cake recipe on the planet – search no longer. I have found it! I clipped this recipe from a magazine about 10 years ago, and stupidly never made it. But fate intervened, championing this recipe’s potential, as it fell out of my ancient recipe file while I was desperately searching for my grandmother’s cinnamon smoothie milk shake recipe. I almost hurriedly threw it away, only to discover, as I gave it a quick glance, that I just might hold the golden fruit cake ticket. Well, for those of us with no time! I am not going to mislead all of you fruit cake aficionados. This is not the most moist, flavor-filled fruit cake in the gluten-free world. However, it is pretty good if you want to whip up a tea cake with no time and very little ingredients! Serve it slathered with some butter or vegan spread and devour. YUM!

    Recipe #443682

    It just doesn’t get much easier than this delicious summer pudding or custard. It can be prepared in less than 10 minutes (and that includes getting the ingredients out of your fridge), and is absolutely delicious. I got this recipe from my friend Alison about 10 years ago, and my snout has paid homage to her fabulous berry custard trough countless times since. This refreshing chilled treat makes a fantastic, simple, last-minute dessert; great after school snack; or guilt free treat on a hot Summer’s day. Either way it is Soy Berry Good! You could substitute any berries you like for this recipe. If you are allergic to soy – fresh young Thai coconut meat and coconut water works really well as a substitute.

    Recipe #443681

    I made this brown rice milk smoothie and it was nothing short of spectacular. OK – so it will be affectionately reserved for the “I don’t care about carb overload” trough for future emotional emergencies. But hey – I might just have to pull it out in times of celebration too! It is really that good. Rich, thick, creamy, and delicious. I don’t know what more I can say, except blend this up now! You will not be disappointed. And unlike some of the nut smoothies I make – this brown rice smoothie is as cheap as chips!

    Recipe #443679

    Hearty, nourishing, delicious, nutritious, and dead easy to make. This red potato, onion and garlic broth, which I affectionately refer to, as my “Happy Peasant Soup” (do you like the smiley face I made in my photo?) is quite simply phenomenal. This phytochemical rich garlic broth will fight off any viral vampires you have to fight, whether it be a simple cold, flu, minor infection, Candida, immune disorder, or other nasty. This soup can’t hurt and can only help – and will keep our snouts happy like every self- respecting peasant before us! It is delicious! Vampires beware!

    Recipe #443678

    For a simple, impressive, and downright delicious soup, you just can’t go past this creamy cauliflower blend. I never tell people what is in it, cause it is so much fun listening to all of the creative guesses. Parsnip? Cream? Onion? What exactly makes this soup taste so good? The cashews! Just make sure you puree the nuts really well in a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix in order to achieve the most creamy, airy consistency. This soup stands alone as a fantastic family dinner with a grain ball or a piece of bread on a cold Winter’s night. Give this soup an opening night at your kitchen – and let this cauliflower bloom! This soup is so easy, and absolutely phenomenal! Not to be missed.

    Recipe #443677

    This recipe is another one I adapted from my childhood. This latest gluten free incantation is simple, tasty, and thanks to the beloved pumpkin – really moist. If you are making this recipe in the United States – use unsweetened canned pumpkin. These quick, easy muffins can be prepared in less than 10 minutes and are totally scrumptious!

    Recipe #443676

    I love simple, raw, shredded salads, and this would be amongst my favorites. The first time I ate a version of this salad, it was made, and served to me, by a very proud 8 year old. That is how quick and easy it is. What I love about this cabbage salad is the vibrant colors. The luscious purple of the cabbage, and the fresh green herbs. It is the perfect balance for my aesthetic sensibility, and my mild palate. I have always been partial to the simplicity of an olive oil and lemon juice dressing, and this is no exception. For those of you who are not strictly raw or vegan this recipe does go to another level when it is topped with about four organic eggs chopped finely. This salad is so refreshing on a Summer’s day, and can literally be made in 5 minutes.
