Easy Vegan Sauces: 3-for-1 Post

It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe. But today, I decided to go into a food prep frenzy, clear out some stuff that needed eating and make some sauces.

Mochi Cinnamon Mug Cake

Do you ever wake up in the morning and want something sweet for breakfast, but don’t want to spend hours baking it? That’s what happened to me this morning, so I created this mochi cinnamon mug cake on the fly.

Even though I feel great since I went low-FODMAP and even found a way to eat a lot of my favorite foods without too many repercussions, I still try to avoid FODMAP foods on a regular basis to keep my tummy happy. One thing that I miss a lot are artichokes. Spinach doesn’t agree with me either, so I really wanted to find something that has a similar taste and texture to a warm spinach-artichoke dip without the side effects.
