Go-To Recipes

These are recipes from other bloggers that I absolutely LOVE to make & make often. They’re my go-tos, my arsenal, my standbys, my fallbacks, my favorites. I make them repeatedly because they’re just. so. good. Oh, and they’re all pretty easy. One pot or one bowl recipes.

So, without further ado, here are our “go-to”s.

This is a serious favorite for Stephen & me. I make the Rye Bread from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day and we dip chunks into this wonderful broth. It’s the perfect combination of garlic, dill & lemon. This is probably one of my favorite recipes ever. And I love Peter’s blog – his photography is fresh & wonderful. Do be careful if you decide to make this incredible Greek dish… you may just eat the whole pot.

Arakas Me Patates from Souvlaki for the Soul

This one is our go-to veggie burger.They’re full of flavor & nutrition – packed with carrots, herbs, oats, flax & black beans – and have a great texture. I love to pan fry them in olive oil from a crispy crust. Hardly necessary to say, but Angela is a vegan blogging idol. Her recipes always use the best ingredients & everything I’ve made from her blog has turned out really delicious. Definitely, try these.

Perfect Veggie Burger from Oh She Glows

Stephen & I have made this next recipe so many times I don’t even need to think about measuring the ingredients. I found this recipe about 1.5 years ago when Stephen wanted to recreate is favorite Indian dish. Honey gives you step-by-step instructions that make it a great starter recipe for anyone who’s never made Indian food and it’s incredibly tasty. It’s definitely one of our staples. (Apparently we love peas & potatoes.)

Aloo Matar from Honey, What’s Cooking?

We also love lentils and make Mesir Wat allll the time. It’s one of the easiest recipes ever & tastes wonderful alone or with some Ethiopian collards or chickpeas. I have no idea where I found the recipe I use…. just like the Aloo Matar, I’ve made it so many times I don’t even think about measuring out the ingredients. After some browsing for examples, Michael’s recipe is definitely closest to the original I use. And I also absolutely adore his blog. He has so many recipes I have bookmarked, waiting to be sampled.

Mesir Wat from Herbivoracious

Of course, I have to include some dessert recipes. This was my first genuinely successful vegan cake and man did it set a precedent. I’ve made it a few times. The ganache is to-die-for. I was so excited when I made this recipe… it’s one of those cakes where no one would ever know the difference between vegan & non-vegan. And it’s supremely chocolate.

Vegan Chocolate Cake from What Would Cathy Eat?

 I’ve made these a dozen cookies a dozen times because they’re quick, easy, and so freaking tasty. Plus they’re versatile & Stephen loves them. They’re addictive but still seem healthy. They’re not greasy & they use wholesome ingredients. I’ve used rice flour & wheat flour, additional spices, and alternative nuts. They turn out great every single time.

Maple Walnut Jam Cookies from Feasting Freds

I must impress upon you the sheer awesomeness of all of the recipes above & implore you to try them all, immediately. They’re simply the best.

  1. Those thumbprint cookies look so beautiful! My housemates and I always seem to end up with a shelf of 3/4 empty jars of assorted jams, and that might be the perfect way to remedy it!

  2. About time! The cookies are delicious, but the best vegan dessert you’ve ever made is your irish cream cupcakes!! Miss you!
