Baskin Robbins Plant Based Ice Cream

There is a new long-term sale on So Delicious Yogurt at Target! Combine the sale price with a manufacturer coupon and an Ibotta rebate offer. Some of you may have a higher-value rebate offer that will make for a better price, but mine is for $0.35.?(The Krazy Loupon Lady)


Big news for folks who tend to avoid dairy, but still love a refreshing, frozen treat when the weather is at its hottest: Baskin-Robbins is launching two non-dairy ice cream flavors in August. Non-Dairy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Non-Dairy Chocolate Explosion, as they’re called, have all of the punch of Baskin-Robbins’ classic ice cream — but since they’re plant-based and vegan, there’s none of the dairy. And even better, participating locations of the ice cream chain will be hosting sampling events on Aug. 4 so you can try out both flavors before you buy. Heck, and yes. (Bustle)

Vegan Thanksgiving recipe: No ‘Turkey’ Roast

Vegan Thanksgiving recipe: No ‘Turkey’ Roast

The vegan Thanksgiving roast in this video is from Gaz Oakley’s new Vegan Christmas cookbook.

Vegan Thanksgiving

He coined the phrase ‘No-Turkey’ to describe it and it just might be the best vegan roast; certainly, the best roast that he’s ever made, or so he claims; so festive & meaty. The roast is wrapped in bacon — vegan bacon, that is.

This roast is not only wonderful for vegans but perhaps equally as important, it’s perfect for omnivores. At this time of the year, families and loved one come together. If you non-vegan family members give this roast a try, they might love it and perhaps it might spark an interested in them to that meals do not need to be meat-centric.

The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are the perfect time for peace, adding a few animal-free meals seems more than appropriate.

How to Make Seitan

This vegan roast is made with vegan bacon. The vegan bacon is made with seitan; in the video, you will leave exactly how to make seitan. Seitan is one of my favorite foods.

As always, there are so many positive comments on YouTube about Gaz’ videos. Here are a few:

I love it. The whole point about promoting vegan food is to be inventive and bring interesting and new tastes to the table that boring old meat dishes miss. Whenever I follow recipes I love to play with them and make variations. Bean curd skin also works really well as a coating combined with the bacon, just for example. – Jane Godfrey


The table in the background is everything. Love your channel Gaz!! I am asking Father Christmas for your book! 😀 ???? – Deborah Warren


?Need to make this and so many more of your recipes. Have your first incredible book!!!??? – Leslie Palante

Vegan Cheesesteak  Sandwich

Vegan Cheesesteak  Sandwich

This video is a really short one showing you how to make a vegan cheese-steak sandwich.

I grew up in the New York metropolitan area. We were close enough to Philadelphia to have heard of Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, but I, myself never actually had one. I frequently heard people raving about how wonderful they are. I always heard, and continue to hear today the arguments over who makes the best cheesesteak sandwich.

What is a  cheesesteak sandwich

A cheesesteak, also known as a Philadelphia cheesesteak, Philly cheesesteak, cheesesteak sandwich, cheese steak, or steak and cheese, is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. A popular regional fast food, it has its roots in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Which cheesesteak sandwich is best Pat’s or Geno’s

There are two restaurants right near each other in Philadelphia, Pat’s and Geno’s. Both will argue that they have the best cheesesteak sandwich. And plenty of people will stand there are tell you the that Pat’s is the best, and there are probably as many people who will tell you that Geno’s is the best. Articles have been written about this for years.

We want a vegan cheesesteak sandwich

Regardless of the cheesesteak story, we’re vegans here. All we want to eat is plant-based food. We don’t want meat that comes from an animal. We don’t want cheese that comes from a cow. So without further ado, let’s get right to the video:

You don’t need meat

As you can see, this quick video shows you how easy it is to make a vegan version of this Philadelphia classic sandwich. I’m sure there are people in Philadelphia who are going to turn their noses up at the mere idea that you can make this Philadelphia classic without using any cow’s meat of cow’s cheese.

Recipe for a vegan cheesesteak sandwich

I know that this was a really quick video and you might not have been able to absorb all the information. Fear not, here a link to get the recipe for this vegan cheese steak sandwich.

Is Worcestershire Sauce vegan?

Usually, the answer is no. You might be surprised to learn that Worcestershire Sauce usually contains anchovies.  Fish are not vegan. But fear not, there are vegan versions of the popular sauce available, or you can make it yourself.

Vegan Worcestershire Sauce

Here is a recipe from PETA

1 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
1 tsp. onion powder
3/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic granules
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves or allspice
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom

• In a blender puree all of the ingredients.
• Pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Store in the refrigerator.

There are many, many variations, do a search on Google, you’ll even try one from Martha Stewart.

Buy Vegan Worcestershire Sauce

Alternatively, if you don’t want to make your own, and with all those ingredients, I could understand why you might not want to, there are several different manufacturers of Vegan Worcestershire Sauce. Here’s a link to Amazon and you’ll see just how many varieties there are. You can even buy a giant 128 oz. container, but I can’t imagine you’d need that much in your entire lifetime.
