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.

    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.

      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...

        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.

          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.

      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!

        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.

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

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

                      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.

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

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