You don’t need the cream, butter and cheese to enjoy a filling pasta dish. Avocado is a rich, decadent replacement that, when paired with garlic, lemon, and fresh mint leaves, doesn’t carry with it any semblance of guacamole.

Excited to share with you my first video on VegNews TV! In this video, I made a vegan caramel sauce and poured it over a vegan walnut banana ice cream. The result was pure heaven. I hope you guys try the recipe out and make it again and again and again.
With just two ingredients and a dash of salt, you have yourself a vegan, homemade caramel sauce without the white sugar. It’s sweet, creamy and something to write home about. You won’t miss the standard, I promise.
As Summer approaches, fresh salads are looking a lot more appetizing. For me, the only way salads don’t get old fast, is if I have a steady arsenal of dressings at my disposal. With strawberries coming into season, what better time to make a homemade version of strawberry balsamic vinaigrette?
