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. These sauces are all gluten-free, oil-free, low-FODMAP, and all you need is a high-powered blender or food processor to make them. Here are the 3 easy vegan sauces I made today.
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.
I’ve also been craving cinnamon rolls lately. I haven’t had one since we visited a vegan, gluten-free bakery in Portland, and that was my first one all year. I do miss those days when I could just buy cinnamon rolls from a store or bakery like everyone else. Maybe someday I will make the time to figure out how to make some at home.
In the meantime, this recipe took me just a few minutes to make. It is not as bad for you as you would think. I won’t call it healthy either, but everyone needs a treat now and again. The mochiko flour makes it gluten-free and gives it that soft, spongy consistency like mochi.
I tested this recipe several times over the past few weeks. I wanted to get it just right before I put it out there, and I think I have a winner! Here’s my Vegan Cheese Dip with Kale and Brussels Sprouts Dip recipe!
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.
I’ve had an odd couple of weeks. I won’t go into gory details, but work has been more annoying and stressful than usual. I really feel sometimes like I’m fighting a losing battle for the cause of rational thinking. Which is why I’m trying to focus on building this meal plan service and create lots of recipes that people will love. And I’m making some headway…more on that shortly.
