Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Since making our vegan take on traditional Indian naan bread a while back, I’ve significantly decreased my consumption of gluten, so naan was off the table for a while. Moment of silence as we grieve. 

The gluten-free alternatives I’d tried up to this point were admittedly lackluster. I missed the pillowy, stretchy naan bread infused with garlic alongside my beloved curries, so I got to work. And the results were incredible. 

Friends, behold, gluten-free vegan naan made in 1 bowl, in 20 minutes, with simple ingredients!

Crispy Breaded Cauliflower Wings

Friends! Welcome to our latest snacking obsession: Crispy Breaded Cauliflower Wings!

Inspired by our Cashew-Crusted Cauliflower “Steak,” these 10-ingredient, grain-free wings have a perfectly seasoned cashew and arrowroot crispy exterior, plus a sweet and spicy glaze so a dipping sauce isn’t necessary. Swoon!

How to Make Cauliflower Wings

We find making cauliflower wings works best as a four-step process:

  1. Egg wash – eggs are gently beaten with a fork to create an egg wash that is perfect for helping the batter stick to the cauliflower.

Grain-Free Cut Out Sugar Cookies (1 Bowl!)

As a child, the anticipation of the holidays meant one thing: My Aunt Patti’s famous sugar cookies. Fluffy, sweet, frosted, perfection.

We would often bake and decorate them together, having plenty of samples along the way. And over the course of the holiday weekend, I would tuck away what felt like dozens of cookies.

I know; not great. But since then, my appetite has matured. I can actually feel a sugar rush coming on and recognize it’s unpleasant, which allows me to enjoy desserts in moderation.

1-Bowl Snickerdoodle Cookies (Vegan + GF)

Do these cookies look like little pillows of cinnamon-spiked goodness coated in magical crystal dust? Oh, that’s weird, because that’s exactly what they are.

Say hello to our new favorite holiday cookie: 1-Bowl Snickerdoodle Cookies that are vegan, gluten-free, and naturally-sweetened. Let’s bake!

The base of these 1-bowl cookies — like most sugar cookies — is butter and sugar. However, we did some extensive testing with this recipe and discovered several things:

  1. Both vegan and dairy butter work well, with dairy butter yielding slightly fluffier results.

1-Bowl Pumpkin Pie (Vegan + GF)

We celebrated Friendsgiving early this year, and I offered to bring the main (Roasted Chicken), vegetables (1-Pan Garlicky Green Beans with Slivered Almonds), and dessert.

In an effort to try something new (although I do love this classic vegan pumpkin pie), I remembered earmarking a gorgeous pumpkin tartlet recipe from Amy Chaplin’s book At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen. I gave it another glance and knew it was the one.
