Vegan Creamed Greens

Creamed spinach is a classic delicious holiday side dish!  So I have revamped it, made it plant based and it is still as delicious as ever!  I don’t just add in spinach, I add in a mixture of greens, and I like it even better than the original!  This is easy to make and it tastes decadent but it is completely free of dairy, eggs and gluten!

Vegan Broccoli “Bacon” Salad

This veganized version of a picnic classic is not only healthier than the original, but delicious as well!  Instead of a mayonnaise based dressing with refined sugar, it has a coconut cashew based dressing with maple syrup. And instead of bacon, it has a coconut bacon that is crispy, smokey and delicious like the real thing!  This would be perfect for a picnic, just wait until you are ready to serve to add the bacon so it stays crisp.
