Hey V&Vs!

Wondering which vegan cooking blogs you've been reading recently...I've been enjoy theppk and ohsheglows but would love to pour over some others.

Thanks!!

  1. Recently tried a recipe from Straightupfood.com...the orange berry muffins were QUITE good, no dairy, no wheat flour, no sugar--I used a single loaf pan and brought it to work...all gone. I might add either vanilla or orange extract next time....flavor from my orange wasn't doing enough, it seemed to me.

    Another interesting site is the Happy Herbivore but haven't tried any recipes yet.

    1. re: Val

      that muffin recipe sounds tasty, albeit too carby for me. but if i subbed coconut flour for part of the oat flour, and swapped out the applesauce for some fat...

      1. re: goodhealthgourmet

        Interesting...would almond flour work too? I've seen folks like mcf talk about using almond flour...I like to experiment but haven't actually ever used almond or coconut flour...? But would be open to it, certainly.

        1. re: Val

          you know, when i scanned it the first time i thought i saw almond flour listed in there already! that's why i didn't mention it. i typically use a blend of almond & coconut. keeping some of the oat flour will help with texture - they'll hold together better without adding a gluten replacer (though i can usually turn out great muffins without any of those things at this point).

          yes, definitely experiment with almond & coconut if you're looking to reduce carbs & increase protein & healthy fat. just tell me what kinds of things you'd like to try and i can probably recommend some recipes to get you started.

    2. Oooh. Well, let's see:

      Healthy Happy Life is amazing. FatFree Vegan Kitchen is another. Manifest Vegan. Green Kitchen Stories (though they tend towards vegetarian dishes, they do do a lot of vegan ones as well). Urban Vegan. Vegan Yum Yum has returned. The First Mess (again lots of vegan AND vegetarian dishes, but so so great). The Tolerant Vegan.

      These are ones I keep with constantly!

      1. re: Peaches to Poutine

        Love fat free vegan, vegan yum yum, happy herbivore

      2. thank you both for the suggestions. it's funny--when we became vegan I expected that there would be fewer cooking options. As it turns out, I feel quite the opposite!

          Another one I love is The Gluttonous Vegan; it's run by an acquaintance of mine in London. She doesn't update anymore, but her recipes are still up. I swear by each and every one of them. Not a bad one in the lot.

          1. re: noya

            I know, right? I feel like being vegan has opened me up to a whole new interesting world of ingredients!

          2. I'm not vegan but I have tried recipes from this site: http://weeklyveganmenu.blogspot.com/

            I've liked everything I've tried.

            1. Vegan Dad

                Ooh, I forget about Vegan Dad. That is really a very good one!

                1. re: Peaches to Poutine

                  Thanks will check that one out and the others here too!

                2. re: peter j

                  Vegan Dad is great

                  1. re: peter j

                    I like Vegan Dad too.

                    1. re: soytoy

                      Vegan Dad really is great!

                  2. www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com

                    for vegan desserts! (and some non-dessert recipes as well)

                    1. For mostly Indian vegan dishes, I love the recipes on http://www.tastypalettes.com . The person who runs it had a baby and hasn't updated the site in a while, but there's a pretty big recipe archive. Of course, vegweb is the granddaddy of all vegan recipe sharing sites. Not a blog, really, and you have to be pretty discriminating since people post lots of bad recipes, but I've found some fantastic recipes there. Coconut and Quinoa has some nice recipes that aren't too soy-heavy (an important point for me). I think the lady who writes it is or was Natalie Portman's chef. http://www.coconutandquinoa.com/ The recipes are very clean-tasting and a bit restaurant-y.

                      1. nobody mentioned yumuniverse.com... IMHO the best out there. (I was just there before i came to chowhound today!)

                        1. So helpful thanks

                          1. i LOVE the wedonteatanythingwithaface.blogspot.com i dont know how many vegan recipes there are but there are certainly some.

                            1. i like vegan crunk ! and she just published a cookbook called cookin' crunk, it's vegan southern food (:

                                I love Bianca's blog too!

                              2. I added Hannah Kaminsky's blog to my must-read queue. I also need to purchase her dessert cookbooks too!
