Schezwan Tofu (Indo-Chinese 1 pan 30 minutes)


Indo-Chinese Schezwan tofu "paneer" is a super quick weeknight stir fry which needs just one pan and 30 minutes. This dish uses a few ingredients and is packed with veggies and FLAVOR! Quick schezwan sauce recipe included!

This is my easy and super delicious indo-Chinese Schezwan tofu! Indo-Chinese cuisine is a sub cuisine of Indian cuisine. It is adapted from both Chinese and Indian cuisines and has its own dishes and sauces. Many of the dishes are similar to Chinese dishes but have added spices and flavors and often have a slightly different name- like this schezwan tofu, which is different from Chinese Szechuan tofu. This Indochinese version usually uses Indian paneer cheese. I am using tofu for the recipe. You can use other plant based proteins as well.

To make this simple dish, you crisp up the tofu and stir fry it with store-bought Schezwan sauce and some veggies, thicken with a little bit of cornstarch, and it's done.

You can use Schezwan sauce or use the Schezwan chutney that you can find in Indian stores or online or use the Chinese sauce. The indo chinese chutney or sauce is more flavorful and more garlic-y than the conventional store ones.

You can also make your own Schezwan sauce from scratch at home with some garlic and dried chilies( milk chilies like Kashmiri chilies). See recipe notes for a quick version. Serve it over plain or schezwan rice, quinoa or Hakka noodles.

Baked Vegan Tofu Caprese Stacks


Vegan Caprese-inspired stacks are like warm, cozy version of a vegan tofu Caprese. Instead of serving it cold, you bake these tofu tomato towers in the oven with a cheesy garlic basil breadcrumb topping. They are absolutely delicious!

This comforting dish features seasoned tofu topped with juicy fresh tomatoes and a garlic-cheese-breadcrumb topping. It's the best way to use really good tomatoes, like heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes, which are super juicy and delicious. This is a great summer dish, and it works really well for the holidays, too!

Just slice up your tomatoes, then use a cookie cutter to cut the tofu into similar-sized rounds, as well, for a good presentation.

If you don't want to cut the tofu into rounds, you can just slice it up and arrange the tomatoes on top of the tofu rectangles in the baking pan. Do as you like, and then make this delicious herb-garlic-breadcrumb-cheese mixture that you put on top along with a little bit of olive oil to help crisp everything up.

Then bake it. It's as simple as that!

This vegan Caprese salad-inspired casserole bakes into this very delicious dish that you will remember for a long long time. It is a great side dish, or you can make it a meal by serving it with some creamy pasta or some sourdough or bakery bread.

Vegan Cheesesteak-Inspired Sandwich (1 pan, 30 minutes, gf, sf, and nf options)


This amazingly toothsome, creamy, smoky sandwich was inspired by the flavors and textures of a vegan cheesesteak. It's a healthy version of the fast food favorite that doesn't sacrifice an ounce of flavor.

This vegan cheesesteak uses soy curls as the meat. Soy curls have more of a chicken-like texture, rather than steak, so I can't really call it a Philly cheesesteak, but it hits such similar flavor notes and textures.

This sandwich is so easy to make! You pan fry seasoned, smoky soy curls and make my easy nacho cheese sauce. If you don't want to use that sauce, you can also use my liquid mozzarella or Potato carrot cheese sauce instead.

Either way, you serve this sandwich up in buns or on hoagie rolls or however else you like. If you're craving a vegan cheesesteak, I definitely recommend making this recipe.

What are soy curls?

Soy-curls are a meet alternative made with just 1 ingredient. Whole soybeans. Soy beans are boiled and dehydrated in a certain way to get that chicken like texture. Soycurls can be cooked in many ways. I love rehydrating them in a marinade or broth to make stir fried like my General tso soy curls, use it to make vegan chickin curry by cooking them in the curry, add it to creamy pasta sauces like my florentine, make spicy crispy soycurls snack and many more ways!

  • smoky, crispy soy curls cook up in just 1 pan
  • satisfying, toothsome texture with creamy cheese sauce on toasted bread
  • choose your favorite vegan cheese sauce – so versatile!

Lemon Coconut Energy Bites 1 Bowl Grain-free


These easy-to-make Lemon Coconut Energy Bites are the perfect pre- or post-workout snack but also make a great food gift for the holidays. (1-bowl, 6-ingredient, grain-free snack balls)

There is something about the flavor combination lemon-coconut that just takes me to a happy, sunshiney place! These delectable lemon coconut bites are a perfect summer snack! And the best part? They are super easy! While many energy bites require us to grind toasted nuts, or use food processor etc we skip all that by using nut flours that already come ground finely. In our case almond flour and coconut flour. Just add everything to a bowl, mix and shape!

I love how the almond flour gives these an almost marzipan-like texture. Lemon juice and zest are added for that fresh zing while maple syrup lends these the perfect sweetness.

Why this recipe works!
  • Just 6 ingredients and 1 bowl
  • No food processor or blender needed
  • zesty springy amazing flavor
  • versatile. Change flavors to preference!
  • no refined sugar or refined oil.

I have a couple of versions of nacho cheese on the blog . They are nut-free, so I decided to make a nut-based version which is creamier and more decadent. This is a super easy vegan cheese recipe. Just add everything to the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.

From there, you can adjust the flavors by adding more spices or adjust the tang with lemon juice to make this your own.

Use this cashew nacho cheese over nachos, burritos, a taco bake, baked potatoes, on blanched broccoli, or however you like. Add some salsa for even more flavor and serve with your fave tortilla chips! For a more neutral cheese sauce recipe see my potato carrot vegan cheese sauce

You guys love my baked jackfruit biryani, so I decided to make another baked biryani for you. Biryani is a Rice dish often with added meats. Many regional cuisines of India have their own variations of this rice dish. They can vary significantly, some just a few spice differences while other with the processes and methods as well. Today we are making a royal biryani from Awadhi (Lucknowi) cuisine.

Lucknowi cuisine (north-central Indian cuisine) has influence from Mughal, nawabi, and Punjabi cuisines with its own dishes. Lucknowi Biryani is usually made with meat, like lamb. I'm using tofu here as the protein, I'm using the same spices that make that biryani ultra delicious and special. Come along with me on my mission to explore regional Indian cuisine as well as make vegan versions of meat heavy Indian recipes!

Lucknowi biryani in the pan

Biryani is a rice dish, which usually has a really flavorful protein added to it. Everything is layered in a pot to get all of the flavors infused into the rice, and it's served either as-is or with some yogurt dip raita or as a side dish. The traditional cooking requires many pans and multiple steps to get all the flavor in the protein and the rice which is then layered and slow cooked in a covered/sealed container. I simplify that whole process by baking the Biryani so you need just 1 baking dish and a few minutes of active time in the kitchen!

I'm using very specific spices in this recipe for that particular authentic flavor. If you don't have all of the spices, use whichever spices you have and add in some extra garam masala, or you can use the spices from my jackfruit biryani.
