  1. Vegan Baked Ziti

    For the longest time, I never wanted to even attempt a baked ziti recipe because I thought nothing could live up to the real thing. But after some trial and error, I was excited to learn that I was so wrong! This recipe uses my homemade vegan mozzarella, which melts and stretches like the real thing; it also uses my tofu ricotta, and the sauce is loaded with lentils instead of meat.

  2. Vegan Ricotta & Spinach Cannelloni

    This vegan cannelloni is stuffed with tofu and spinach ricotta, immersed in a homemade marinara sauce, and topped with a creamy vegan mascarpone sauce. It's a great meal to make for a special occasion, but it's easy enough to make any night of the week. And even picky eaters will love it!

    Cannelloni noodles can be hard to find in the United States, but I was able to order them online. In most US supermarkets, the closest thing you'll find is manicotti, which you can use, but it's much larger than cannelloni. (Scroll down for instructions on adapting this recipe for manicotti.)

  3. General Tso's Tofu A Vegan Take on Chinese Takeout

    I haven't had Chinese takeout in probably ten years. But there are a few indulgences I really enjoyed back then, like crab rangoon, sweet and sour chicken, and of course, General Tso's chicken. So I decided to do a vegan take on takeout and make a General Tso's tofu recipe. I made this recipe in different variations more than ten times, but I'm finally in love with the results!

    In case you're curious, there actually was a General Tso (Tso Tsung-t'ang) who lived in the 1800s, and legend claims that this chicken was his favorite dish.

  4. Crispy Fried Tofu A Takeout-Style Recipe

    It's been a long time since I've eaten anything fried in oil. But recently I found myself craving General Tso's sauce, and decided I'd treat myself. Since I'm vegan, I obviously won't be eating chicken with that sauce, so I decided to batter and fry tofu instead. This tofu came out so perfect, golden, and delicious that it was worthy of its own recipe. The texture of the coating is very similar to the battered chicken you'll find in many Chinese takeout places, so you can use it with a variety of sauces. It also has enough flavor to be snacked on alone!
