Here we go!

1. Pear & Almond Clafoutis

This easy clafoutis should be a classic for Pesach, and you can follow the same steps to make it with virtually any fruit to suit the occasion.

2. Chocolate Mousse {VEGAN}

Any day, any occasion is excellent for a decadent and creamy Chocolate mousse, don’t you agree? And, specially if you are talking about vegan chocolate mousse! Oh, Yum!

3. Cherry Crumble {VEGAN}

This Cherry Crumble uses hazelnut meal, but if you can’t find it you can make it yourself by grinding the nuts or you can substitute with almond meal.

4. Tahini Brownies

Tahini + Chocolate is one of those weird but “oh-so-delicious” combos you need to try as soon as possible. Comes in form of brownie? Even better!

5. Roasted Pears with Cream {VEGAN}

I love everything about this dessert. Simple, flavorful and elegant.

6. Magic Cookie Bars {VEGAN}

These look glorious! Need an incentive to make these cookie bars? The recipe comes with a little video for you visual learners 😀

7. Crème Caramel

Creamy + Easy + Luscious = perfect dessert.

8. Cookie Dough Bites {VEGAN}

Aren’t these babies gorgeous? 🙂 They are also extremely easy to make and they cannot just satisfy your sweet tooth but also beautify your table.

 

9. Vanilla Custard Cake {VEGAN}

OMG! I am salivating just by looking gat this picture. Don’t let the decadent look intimidate you. This decadent cake uses a 2-ingredients crust and 9-ingredients total.

10. Berry Cheesecake Bars {VEGAN}

Of course, we couldn’t ignore this Berry Cheesecake. It’s vegan, it is easy and it is no-bake. This gems will close with a flourish any gatherings. Guaranteed!

Passover-friendly Crème Caramel {Dairy-Free}

Hello, There! A few days ago was hubby birthday, and even though we don’t really celebrate birthdays, I wanted to prepared a special treat. I made Dairy Free Crème Caramel as he wished.

Humble ingredients, great results

Crème Caramel is one of the easiest desserts on the planet and it is certainly made with very simple ingredients. Literally Eggs, Milk & Sugar.

You can also put it together in a few minutes and in a couple of hours (if you don’t have that much time I can tell you a trick later on ;)) you’ll have a super easy yet nice dessert on the table. Plus, it is naturally Passover-friendly!

Dairy Free Crème Caramel can be a simple yet luscious birthday treat or a Passover favorite. Click here to grab this amazing gluten free, grain free treat recipe with sugar-free option!

You can easily increase or decrease the ingredients amounts to fit your needs. If you doubled or tripled the recipe and then have leftovers, don’t worry, pour on the mix in a air-tight container and freeze. When ready to use, thaw, give a quick mix, prepare your molds with caramel and bake.

To bake these custards I used 6 ounces Glass Pyrex Bakeware. Another great way to bake these is with ramekins.

I like how these turned out with that beautiful golden caramel on top. If you want more deep caramel color and flavor, cook the caramel a little bit longer, keeping a close eye on it since it can be burnt when you blink.

Remove the molds from the baking dish, cool to room temperature and store in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. If you are impatient, like me!, chill them in the freezer. Completely chilling these babies does make a difference in the texture of the final product (more creaminess, anyone?!)

Enjoy!

Vegan Mushrooms Spinach Alfredo

I love pasta because it is so versatile and easy to make. You can literally please a crowd with a few ingredients and simple preparation, for the most past it is kids-friendly and also you don’t need to break the bank. Need another reason? Now that Purim is over, the pasta frenzy has started (aka. Pesah is around the corner!), so this nice easy recipe is all you need to cook that bit of pasta hidden in your pantry in time for Pesah.  Take note on the simply luscious Vegan Mushrooms Spinach Alfredo before Pesah cleaning drives you nuts.

There are a few staple pasta dishes I do at home, mainly because it is just easier to make family members eat what they already know, and within that repertoire I have pasta with dairy-free cream and smoked salmon, that hubby certainly love but, I had some reasons to twist things for this occasion (first, I am trying to incorporate more vegan food into our meals. Second, I had a whole bunch of mushrooms sitting on the fridge and third, I was having a lazy day; enough reason right here, lol…

… And, well, we all agree that sometimes you just need that creamy luscious bowl of pasta no matter what it brings, right? lol so, I added the mushrooms while I crossed my fingers and prayed hubby will like it… oh, oh! 😛

No Cream? No Problem!

For this pasta I used Alpro Cuisine Soy Cream but if you can’t find dairy-free cream you can substitute with some dairy-free bechamel. You can easily make the bechamel as follows: Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil over low heat, add 2 Tbsp of All Purpose flour and cook the flour for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly so the flour doesn’t burn, until it has a nutty smell. Still stirring, pour 2-3 cups of soy milk and stir vigorously until the sauce has the desired consistency.

Stirring it is very important because this will prevent your sauce from getting all clumpy but, if for some reason you were distracted and your sauce ended up with clumps, you can strain through a fine sieve once it is finished.  Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg and it will be ready to go!

That’s it! Vegan Mushrooms Spinach Alfredo! Mega easy right? And not just easy but very flavorful thanks to the umami of the mushrooms. This Vegan Mushrooms Spinach Alfredo proved to be the real deal that day! And, my 3yo, who doesn’t normally eat mushrooms, liked it and asked for more 😀

Have you tried Vegan Mushrooms Spinach Alfredo yet? What are you waiting for?! If you love this recipe don’t forget to share with your friends and family and, of course, head to instagram and pinterest to say hi! We always love to hear from you!

Until next time!
