VEGAN PIEROGIES!!!

Well if you`re anything like me, frustrated whenever you try to find some vegan pierogies at a grocery store, and there are none to be found except for potato and cheddar cheese!!!  I can never find any that are vegan for my famly to eat.

Well that`s when you put your foot down and just simply make your own vegan batch; and I promise it is super easy!  That`s right! You can totally make your own!!! The best thing is they`re not hard to make at all, and takes very little time.

Coming from an Italian family, we make pasta with our eyes closed ( making them is similar to an Italian ravioli :D, except leave out the egg from the dough). All we needed was to add potato in the pierogi rather than ricotta.  Making vegan recipes isn`t difficult at all and healthier than non vegan food.

This recipe does inclue a vegan cream cheeze that I add to the mixture, it will be included in the video.

And to top your pieogies here is my vegan sour cream video link!!! Don`t let me be the one to say how good it is…just try it!!! 😀

This recipe with the potato and cilantro, is one of my family`s favorites! So enjoy guys and leave me a comment if you try them. Double that batch and throw some in the freezer Pierogi recipe link!!

Small note : If you don`t have a hand cranked pasta machine …( I recommend you definitely need to get one,  every house hold needs one hehehehe:D ), you can always simply roll out the pasts with a rolling pin. I am sure if you look around you can even find a second hand one pasta machine. New would go for approxitmetly $80.00 dollars and up.  What`s life without a pasta machine!

CHEAP EASY LOW FAT HEALTHY VEGAN SWEET POTATO LASAGNA

Here’s a great way to make an easy and delicious low fat, pasta-free, gluten-free lip smacking lasagna dish.

We don’t all have the time to make homemade pasta from scratch; so when you’re having a last minute craving for a nice hot dish of lasagna, this recipe is perfect for you! (Especially during our cold winters in Canada). Ready-made lasagnas are easily accessible at the grocery store, but are full of ingredients that are damaging to our health.  Most of the time I eat raw vegan food, but I was craving a nice hot dish of lasagna rather than a cold raw one.potatoe lasagna1

I figured I would take all my raw ingrendients I would normally use to make my raw dish and simply bake it in the oven. I also ended up throwing in some lentil, making it a more robust dish. And let me tell you, you will be pleasantly surprised! It was just out of this world! I couldn’t belive how great and delicious it turned out!  Give it a try and leave
me a comment letting me know how you enjoyed it.

Here is the link to my youtube video on making a CHEAP EASY LOW FAT HEATHY VEGAN SWEET POTATO LASAGNA.

Enjoy!

 

 

A RAW TRUFFLE AND GREEN ONION CREAM CHEEZE

Ready to tantalize your tastebuds! Here’s a wonderful creamy and delicious raw vegan  cream cheeze made with truffle oil and chopped green onion.

AGED Spicy chili paprika cheeze!

What is the first thing someone tells you when they explain why it’s so hard to go vegan?? They will most likely talk to you about dairy and how they just can’t let go of that cheese!! Well, what if I told you that you can make a cheese so good you won’t miss it because you will be able to whip it up in no time at all 🙂 I myself loved cheese, but personally didn’t care to have and cheese what so ever, after knowing what these poor animals went through just so we can steal their milk.

After 8 years or trial and error, I have managed to make some of the best vegan cheeses around. My clients keep returning for more, making that a good sign don’t you think 🙂

So here is one I would like to share with you all. One of my best sellers too!!  So if you liked Goat cheese like me. I loved cheeses, here’s a nice Spicy chili paprika aged cheese that tastes very similar. Here is the link to the video enjoy!!

RAW SPICY CHEEZIE CRACKERS!

Yumm, not sure if you have ever tried raw crackers, but they are simply delicious! With so little ingredients you can whip up a great tasting and healthy cracker for you and your family minus the extras that normally come with a regular cracker such as preservatives and other ingredients we can’t even pronounce!! So, I will be putting up some of my favorite crackers I make that are a must for you to try. Here is one I made the other day, simple delicious, fast and easy. Anyone can enjoy these, let it be if you are a raw foodie or not!!

Here`s the link to the video on how to make them!!

RAW VEGAN YUMMY AND CREAMY CAESAR DRESSING!

When people start their vegan journey, they always seem so disappointed that they can’t have all of those salad dressings they were so used to having before. But guess what….you can still have them, and they are and can be even better! Not only are they delicious, but they are so much healthier for us without all of the added junk you typically find in salad dressings. You can actually enjoy having them knowing they have no added preservatives or chemicals that we aren’t even able to pronounce.

The best part is that they are also guilt free! No animals had to die or suffer for you to enjoy some dressing on your salads. Even if you are not vegan you should give them a try, they really are that good!

Thanks to my daughter who had us over at her home for thanksgiving! Not only was all her food the yummiest, but she made the most delicious kale salad with caesar dressing which inspired me to make a new raw version for all of you :).

I’ve made a couple vegan Caesar salad recipes over the years but I think this version is my best one yet. Recipes are always a works in progress for me just like my art 🙂 and I find each time I make them they get better and better,  I’m always trying new ways to improve them!.

So here is the link to my CAESAR DRESSING!

RAW CHEEZE!

Fall is just around the corner, and besides all those beautiful fall colours and beautiful fall veggies, it’s also time to start the cheeze again! I start them only in the fall , and then stop in the late spring due to where I keep all the cheezes to age. So for now unfortunately I make these great cheeze only in the cooler climate!

Took me many years but I have managed to create some great raw aged cheeze! So as soon I have some ready I will be letting you all know.
