No Oil Baked Fries

These perfectly crisp baked french fries are the perfect side for veggie burgers and carrot dogs. By boiling the potatoes for a few minutes before baking, you reduce some of the starch and provide enough moisture to yield crispy fries that are completely oil free.

Traditional Irish Brown Soda Bread – Vegan Style

A couple of months into my plant-based journey, I began to miss my little Sunday ritual of making my Irish grandmother’s traditional Brown Soda Bread. It’s so simple and satisfying to make, that after trying, and spectacularly failing to find an equally delicious alternative, I decided to come up with my own vegan version of it. And although it’s taken a good few weeks of fine-tuning, I think I’ve finally cracked it. Not wanting to stray from the original recipe too much, I substituted only what was absolutely necessary in order to keep the taste as authentic as possible. I’m super happy, and proud, of the outcome, as I know my grandmother would not only give me her seal of approval but also join me in having a nice oven-warm slice together with a delightfully strong cup of black tea! It’s a truly wonderful bread, that can be enjoyed with sweet or savory toppings, or even just plain, being perfect to dip in any kind of vegetable soup or stew.

Collard Ribbons

This recipe is more about cutting technique than ingredients. Our family never ate many collards until I learned this ribbon style of cutting, which eliminates their tough texture. If you usually just chop them, you’ll see that this style of cutting makes a huge difference.

Baked Salt & Vinegar Fries

Traditional French fries are my biggest “high fat” weakness, so I am motivated to cut and bake my own fries that are both healthy and satisfying. This recipe has all the crunchiness of traditional French fries without all the fat.

Breaded Onion Rings

This recipe was inspired by the canned onion strings on top of a traditional green bean casserole. The canned onions are greasy, salty, and highly processed, and I knew there had to be a delicious alternative. These onion rings are it! In fact, the first time I threw them together, my family ate them all before they even made it to the top of the casserole.
