Looking for an easy sandwich filling, cracker dip or salad topper? This chickpea salad is a vegan spin on the classic tuna salad filling. It’s packed with flavour and so easy to make – plus, no fishies were harmed in the making!
Before going vegan, I loved creamy alfredo pasta; it was almost always the dish I would order at restaurants. But, I would always feel terrible afterwards. The abundance of dairy made me feel sluggish and tired, and this vegan version completely solves that problem! Also – please note that I am not a authentically trained Italian chef – this is just my version of an easy, vegan alfredo.
Growing up, my aunt used to make a famously delicious lasagna. It tasted amazing and was everyone’s favourite at all of our family gatherings; but it was packed with dairy & cow products so it definitely made you feel tired, sluggish and just plain-old gross afterwards. I’ve been considering trying to veganize lasagna for a while now, but I really didn’t want to add a bunch of veggies to it. I think maybe I’ll do a healthier lasagna, maybe made with eggplant and mushrooms, but for now – we’re making a deliciously cheesy, decadent vegan lasagna with a red crumble sauce (like a meat-sauce, but no harmed animals) and a cheesy, creamy sauce (again, with no harmed animals). I’m not joking, I was literally licking the spoon clean after I finished spreading on the cheese sauce. It was so good, I might just have to update my vegan mac and cheese recipe! My husband is my certified taste-tester and he said it was the best thing I’ve ever cooked, better than my aunts (sorry Aunt Rachel!) and he wants me to meal-prep it for him next week. Kinder words have never been spoken!
I’ve decided to start a new series on my website called the Vegan Comfort Food Challenge – and here is my first recipe! I’ve taken the classic creamy, cheesy and definitely not vegan mac and cheese, and veganized it! This recipe is so easy, so delicious and only requires 8 ingredients! If you have a comfort food that you loved before vegan, or one that’s stopping you from going vegan now, leave it in the comment section below or on my Instagram and I will try to add it to the series!
