Vegan Summer Spring Rolls

I absolutely adore vegan spring rolls, and if you chill these gorgeous vegan summer spring rolls you will always have a refreshing vegan snack to hand when you are fighting off the summer heat with one of my best vegan recipes.

These refreshing vegan spring rolls are the perfect vegan summer snack, and best of all, they are really quick and easy to make, which is why they are one of my favorite vegan recipes!

The instructions for making vegan spring rolls are probably the easiest you will ever find of any of my vegan recipes! I haven’t included measurements because nearly everything included can be changed to taste!

Vegan Waldorf Salad

I was going to start this recipe off by talking about what a classic American dish the Waldorf Salad is.  Its THE perfect refresher snack on a hot day and gobbled up at 4th of July pic-nics.  But that isn’t the reason I posted it.

Ok, so…truth be told, I thought of this recipe because I’m obsessed with Gossip Girl.  I was watching the season 3 finalé and found myself engulfed with two things:  Blair Waldorf and a Waldorf salad.  Alas…here’s the most perfect recipe that (I think) exists.

I’ve noticed lately that most vegan muffin recipes are packed with vegetable oil, which sort of grosses me out.  So I’ve been experimenting with replacing oil with apple sauce.  These muffins are delicious and very moist without the guilt!  Happy Cooking!

Vegan Samosa Mashed Potatoes

This recipe actually came into effect during a vegan brunch that I hosted for some friends.  I had intended on making samosas, but as time drew near, I realized I had the filling done, but no time to make the dough and fry the samosas before it was time to serve the rest of the food.  So, with a little doctoring, I turned this tasty Indian pastry filling into some awesomely delicious mashed taters that were a BIG hit.

Peanut noodle salad is a dish that I’ve had hundreds of ways – some bad, some good.  This recipe pretty much takes the cake for being the easiest to prepare and the tastiest.  A few problems I’ve found with making this dish in the past is the stickiness of the noodles and the thick sauce combining to make a mushy mess that was not appealing to the eye or the palate.  By using regular spaghetti noodles, the problem was pretty much solved.  This vegan peanut noodle salad is perfect as a main course (perhaps with a little grilled tofu satay) or as a side dish/appetizer. Warning: its addictive, so don’t be surprised if you eat noodle salad for 5 days in a row.  We won’t judge.

Here’s one of my favorite vegan recipes – especially in the fall and winter.  Its so tasty and healthy, not to mention – really easy to make!  Originally a French recipe, this dish is also very popular in the Mediterranean.

This easy vegan recipe adds a great twist to a well loved favorite!  The yummy taste of the roasted shallots really gives this classic recipe a kick in the balls – in a good way.  Plus, it can be made in 15 minutes!

This is perfect when you are looking for a vegan taste of the Mediterranean at home, or at a party.   Serve with Vegan Rustic Herb Crackers or fresh pita bread from a local bakery (make sure its vegan)!

These crackers are great with hummus, mushroom pate, or any other tasty dip/spread that you can come up with!  Great as a gift with some tasty vegan wine – or just a nice staple item to have in the kitchen for when cravings come calling.

I LOVE Mexican Rice.  Its hearty, delicious, and is great by itself or paired with any tasty Mexican dish.  Unfortunately, its most commonly made with chicken stock, so its hard to get.  Here’s an easy recipe that will satisfy your craving and allow you plenty of time to get some other things done in the kitchen while you wait.  Enjoy!
