The BEST Vegan Burger (GF, Soy-Free)

We’ve shared many veggie burgers over the years, but this one takes the burger, or the cake, or the burger cake! (Burger cake recipe idea, noted).

We examined all of our past recipes, tried to dissect the flavor of beef, and got very scientific about this burger. We considered the texture, the flavor, the aroma, and the complexity of every ingredient added. If it wasn’t adding something special or amazing, we tossed it.

Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta

The idea for this pasta floated into my brain one day: sweet roasted butternut squash tossed with pasta and a garlicky white sauce. After a few rounds of testing, I knew I had something incredible to share. This is my favorite fall and winter pasta yet!

Squash is halved and roasted until caramelized with the skin for ease. The sauce requires just 5 pantry staple ingredients. And when topped with (optional) shiitake bacon, the salty-sweet flavor combination takes it to the next level!
