Vegan Crab Cakes

How to Video: Vegan Crab Cakes are a healthy version of a classic favorite. These babies are so freaking delicious. They are gluten-free and vegan crab-less crab cakes. For a more authentic flavor try frying them up. For a healthier and just as good version, bake them instead.

What is Heart of Palm? I know, what the heck are hearts of palm? Hearts of palm is a vegetable that is harvested from the inner core of a young palm tree. Moderate harvesting will not kill the entire palm, woo, I was a little worried. Hearts of palm make a perfect replacement for crab. When chopped or pulsed in a food processor it mimics the texture of “real” crab.
The combination of the vegetables and spices give the authentic flavor to the crab cakes. Fresh colorful crisp veggies add amazingly bright flavors. Fresh spices are awesome but dried are great to have around!

Dry Ingredients:
Nori or Braggs Sea Kelp Seasoning, dried basil, dried parsley,
onion powder, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Tempeh Bacon

How to Video:
Tempeh bacon is bold, versatile, and a cinch to make. This protein-packed plant-based bacon is no cousin of the “other’ bacon but it is healthier and kinder too. Whatever your reason, give this yummy tempeh bacon a try!

The key to preparing the perfect tempeh dish is to steam or simmer the tempeh before marinating and cooking. Marinate with whatever your taste buds desire. Tempeh is amazing with its ability to take on the flavor of whatever you put it with. Looking for a sweet bacon flavor? Try pure maple syrup, honey (not always considered vegan), fruit paste, or agave nectar. If you’d rather a spicy “bacon” marinate in your favorite hot sauce, jalapenos, and pepper.

After marinating the tempeh you can cook it any way you please. Fry it up, bake it, air fry it, or grill it. Part of the beauty of tempeh is its versatility. Tempeh makes a perfect meat alternative. It’s crazy healthy and packed full of plant-based protein goodness. Have fun making this easy healthy tre..

Easy Vegan Tapioca

I finally did it, I made a dessert! It’s a miracle. My mother had a craving for tapioca pudding and since a ready-made version sounded awful, I decided to give a whirl. If I can make a delicious dessert, trust me, so can you! My family and friends would tell you, I suck at dessert. No longer!

I was visiting family in Cleveland, Ohio and thus my eldest daughter’s food allergies threw a wrench into my recipe creation. I needed to make a tapioca that was not only vegan but also soy free, gluten free, and corn free. While at Whole Foods I came across a new cashew milk yogurt drink. It comes in 3 flavors that I have found: blueberry, strawberry, and plain. I figured a thicker non-dairy milk like a yogurt drink would add a nice a texture and flavor to the tapioca. It was a random guess that worked out, awesome!

If the texture of tapioca isn’t your thing, I would avoid this dessert. For crazy people, like myself, who don’t care for desserts, this is a surprisingly delicious option. This d..
