There's something intimidating about making your own pie crust – especially when it comes to rolling out a pie crust. For some reason, we all tend to prefer graham cracker crusts, where you simply crush store-bought crackers together with vegan butter and press the mixture into a pan.

If you feel the same way, I am here to tell you that with the right recipe, everyone can make their own vegan pie crust from scratch! Give this easy pie crust a chance and you will be pleasantly surprised.

This almond flour pie crust is so easy to make. It's only made with a handful of simple ingredients that you probably already have stocked in your gluten-free pantry.

But there's more to this vegan pie crust! Apart from being simple, this is also a gluten-free and grain-free pie crust recipe. Due to the absence of gluten, you don't need to worry about overworking the dough and ending up with a tough crust.

As we are using oil in this vegan pie crust, you don't need to worry about chilling and cutting in butter. Also, there's no need to chill the dough so not only is this an easy pie crust but also a quick one!

I have used variations of this almond flour pie crust in several of my favorite recipes, like this Vegan Chocolate Pumpkin Pie.  It is so versatile and you can season it with your favorite herbs and spices.

This Sesame Shallot Soy Curl Stir Fry makes for an amazing weeknight dinner that rivals any takeout meal. Soy curls marinated in a sweet-salty-spicy marinade, then stir-fried in sesame oil along with shallots and garlic. Chinese broccoli and Thai Basil are added along the way for that authentic flavor, and the rest of the marinade is also added to create a delicious stir-fry sauce. Serve this easy soy curl stir fry with rice, broccoli rice, zoodles or noodles!

Soy curls are one my favorite meat subs. They are made with whole non-gmo soybeans and you can find them in some stores or order them online on amazon.

Thai Basil vs Sweet Basil

For this recipe, we are using Thai basil! While you could use sweet basil I recommend you try and find the Thai kind. How to distinguish them? Thai basil has a purple stem while sweet basil has a green stem. Also check the leaves:  unlike the delicate, floppy big leaves you see on sweet basil, Thai basil leaves are smaller and sturdier. This means they hold up better during cooking making this basil ideal for stir-fries.

Lastly, the taste: Thai basil is spicy with an anise, or licorice-like flavor, while sweet basil has a more mild peppery and sweet taste.

On cooking with soy curls:

Soy Curls come dry and need to be rehydrated and cooked in order to enjoy them. They will increase in size quite a bit as they soak. You need to soak them in the marinade for only about 10 minutes.

I marinade the soycurls in the sauce for the extra flavor and then toast them before adding the rest of the ingredients. This improves the texture! You've got to try them this way as this stir fry or my General Tsos soy curls!

Soy curls are not same as soy chunks that are chewier and take much longer to cook. Soy curls can be found in some grocery stores or online on amazon.

Coming at you with a full vegan breakfast platter! Chickpea Scramble Breakfast Pinwheels, Hashbrowns, and fruit! That alongside a cup of good coffee and the day is already pretty perfect. Think of these Chickpea Breakfast Pinwheels as a fun spin on a vegan chickpea scramble burrito or a wrap. But here, instead of just rolling it all up and biting right in, we slice the  breakfast wrap into little breakfast pinwheels.

Chickpeas are mashed with some secret ingredients into a chickpea scramble salad which you can also serve on bread! We roll that up in a tortilla, slice it and pan fry for a crisp bite! These also make a great packed breakfast or snack.

Once we have prepared our scramble filling, we just take some extra-large flour tortillas and add the chickpea scramble plus some greens. I went with spinach but you can use herbs, arugula, kale, whatever you want.

Roll it up then slice it into rounds. These are delicious as they are but to take them to the next level of golden crunchy chickpea breakfast deliciousness, fry the pinwheels in the pan just a couple of minutes to brown them on both sides.

Serve them as a complete vegan breakfast platter along with my quick homemade hashbrowns and some fresh fruit at your next brunch party. Or pack it all and take it to work, school, or university for an easy lunch.

This recipe is nut-free and can be made gluten-free by using gluten-free tortillas.
