  1. Vegan Potato Skins

    Potato skins are a classic American appetizer that are loved by almost everyone. But with cheddar, bacon, and sour cream, they're not exactly vegan-friendly. In this recipe, I'm using store-bought vegan cheddar and sour cream along with sun-dried tomatoes so you can enjoy this delicious dish right at home.

    I love making these potato skins for parties, game-day gatherings, or casual everyday snacks. They're great for groups of people because they're a finger food that doesn't require utensils. If you need more ideas for vegan party snacks, try my spinach and artichoke dip, jalapeño poppers, mozzarella sticks, or cashew queso dip.

  2. Loaded Vegan Baked Potato

    Loaded baked potatoes are one of those foods that I really miss when I go out to eat. They typically contain so many animal products, like butter, bacon, cheese, and sour cream. However, this version is completely vegan and tastes absolutely amazing! I've tested out vegan cheddars and sour creams to find the best brands, and I used sun-dried tomatoes to add a ton of flavor.

    This recipe is pretty quick and easy to make; most of the preparation time is just waiting for the potatoes to bake in the oven. So while it's a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, it's also an easy comfort food to pull off any time of year.

  3. Tex-Mex Vegan Baked Potato

    This Tex-Mex baked potato takes the concept of a classic loaded baked potato and crosses it with lots of Tex-Mex ingredients and flavors: black beans, tomato, corn, jalapeños, cilantro, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. The tastes all complement each other so deliciously that this will become your new favorite vegan side dish!

    This baked potato is perfect for parties, game-day gatherings, and even holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. But I'm happy to have it on my dinner table any time of year.

  4. Vegan Twice-Baked Potatoes

    Twice-baked potatoes have been a must at my family's Thanksgiving dinner table since as far back as I can remember. They're melty and cheesy and flavorful and everyone loves them! But being vegan doesn't mean I have to give up this essential holiday comfort food.

    Twice-baked potatoes have many different variations, but in this recipe, I'm going for a classic flavor with vegan butter, almond milk, and a homemade cheesy sauce. And of course, they're topped with paprika and chives. If you're looking for a baked potato with more toppings, you can try my loaded baked potato or Tex-Mex baked potato recipes.

  5. Vegan Apple Galette

    This galette recipe is a vegan take on the classic French dessert. It has all the goodness of an apple pie, with about half the time and effort! With a flaky crust, and apple, cinnamon, and brown sugar filling, this vegan galette is the perfect dessert for Thanksgiving, fall, or really any time of year.

    Galettes come in many forms, including savory and sweet. The king cake served at Mardis Gras celebrations comes from the French galette des rois. But in this recipe, we're using apples and a flaky, buttery crust to create a galette that's something like a rustic pie.

  6. Vegan Buttercream Frosting

    Buttercream frosting is easily my favorite vegan cake frosting of all time. It has a rich flavor and a thick, creamy texture that just works well on almost any cake or cupcake. This recipe makes a vanilla buttercream which is perfect for a white frosting base, or for coloring in a variety of colors. The best thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make. With just a few ingredients and a stand mixer, you can have delicious vegan frosting in minutes.

    If you need some moist and delicious vegan cake recipes to pair this frosting with, try my vegan vanilla cake or my divine chocolate cupcakes.

  7. Smashed Potatoes with Garlic and Vegan Parmesan

    Smashed potatoes, where have you been all my life? Fluffy inside and crispy outside, filling but also snackable, these have become a go-to in my kitchen. I tried a few recipes that were on the bland side, so I upped the flavor level with garlic, rosemary, vegan parmesan, and vegan butter. And they are sooo good!

  8. Vegan Garlic Bread

    This garlic bread recipe is the vegan version of the classic that many of us remember and love. It's a sliced, pull-apart baguette with grated garlic and chopped fresh parsley, topped with my vegan parmesan. You can also put some slices of vegan mozzarella between the bread slices for cheesy garlic bread.

    Garlic bread is a delicious accompaniment to soups, curries, salads, lasagna, baked ziti, or ravioli. I often eat leftovers as a snack with spicy marinara dipping sauce or spinach & artichoke dip.

  9. Vegan Parmesan Cheese

    This vegan parmesan cheese recipe is the perfect dairy-free substitute anytime you want to sprinkle a little grated parmesan on your meal. It has a cheesy flavor and crumbly texture that pairs beautifully with pizza, pasta, or garlic bread. And it takes just 5 minutes to make! Since parmesan has a nutty flavor, we're using almonds in this recipe (but other nuts may work as well). For a nut-free option, try using hemp seeds instead.

    Although you can use almonds with the peel on, I recommend using blanched almonds for this recipe. Many people prefer blanched almonds for nutritional reasons (there are compounds called tannins in the brown outer peels which may inhibit the absorption of nutrients in the body). Using almonds without the peel will also make your vegan parmesan resemble real parmesan.

  10. Vegan Mozzarella Cheese a cashew cheese that stretches, melts, and grates!

    This vegan mozzarella stretches like real cheese, but it's also firm enough to grate (after freezing for a bit). And it has the perfect tangy, salty mozzarella taste! This cheese is perfect for pizzas, pasta dishes like my baked ziti or lasagna, or even mozzarella sticks!

    You'll want to plan ahead when making this vegan mozzarella. Start making it at least two hours in advance if you plan to slice it. If you will be grating it, it's best to prepare the cheese the day before so you can freeze it overnight.
