Homemade Vegan Whipped Butter | Blooming Vegan

Homemade Vegan Whipped Butter

It's surprisingly easy to make homemade vegan butter. I never would have attempted it myself, but Richard decided to try it and was very successful. I was immediately converted! I couldn't believe how delicious and realistic this butter tasted, and we've completely switched from store-bought brands like Earth Balance to making our own at home ... Read More
Vegan Buffalo Chick'n Dip | Blooming Vegan

Vegan Buffalo Chick’n Dip

I'm all for Buffalo-flavored anything - vegan chick'n wings or nuggets, cauliflower bites, pizza, even mac and cheeze. So when Richard decided to make a Buffalo chick'n dip I was totally on board! However when he first mentioned wanting to try this, I didn't really understand the concept so I was intrigued. Then as it ... Read More
Vanilla Peanut Butter Smoothie | Blooming Vegan

Vanilla Peanut Butter Smoothie

Smoothies are a really great way to start the day, although I can have one anytime. There's nothing wrong with smoothies for dinner!

Vegan Caesar Salad | Blooming Vegan

Vegan Chick’n Caesar Salad

Fortunately it's so easy to veganize this with the right ingredients to give it that zesty, ... Read More

Deviled Potatoes

I've often though deviled eggs were the perfect party food - bite-sized, suitable for all types of toppings, soft and delicious. I could easily put away five or six at once (if not more!). Being vegan doesn't mean that type of appetizer is a thing of the past - not when you have little potatoes! ... Read More
Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies | Blooming Vegan

Vegan Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Like a lot of people, I'm a huge fan of cookies, and chocolate chip ones are definitely my favorite (anything with chocolate is a win in my book!). They make the house smell amazing while they’re baking, and there’s nothing quite like having them hot out of the oven. I've often used pre-packaged mixes like ... Read More
Vegan Sloppy Joes | Blooming Vegan

Easy Vegan Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes - hearty, filling and oh-so-messy. What's not to love? Sloppy Joes were actually one of the few things I cooked on multiple occasions before going vegan. Granted, my recipe at the time consisted only of browning some meat and combining it with a pre-made can of sauce, but still - it was a ... Read More
