One Pot Chickpea Shakshuka

I love normal (non-vegan) shakshuka with eggs, and have had subpar chickpea shakshuka’s before, so I had low expectations for this recipe. My vegan friend highly recommended this recipe from Minimalist Baker, so I decided to try it, and I very much enjoyed it! I also topped it with Eden Grinshpan’s Garlicky tahini, which I…

Paleo Macaroons

Got this delicious recipe from a vegan friend. I was skeptical, since these macaroons are paleo, gluten-free and vegan, and I’ve definitely gotten some bad recipes for “healthy” desserts, so my parents generally ask me not to make desserts healthy. However, decided to take a risk with this recipe, as this vegan friend cooks a…

Strawberry French Toast Bread Pudding

I had extra homemade challah, and decided to make with it a recipe I had been wanting to try for a while, Berry French Toast Bake from TASTY. I didn’t have any fresh fruit, so I had to revise the recipe based on the frozen berries I had at home.  Here is the recipe, with…
