Vegan Sweet Potato Fries

Vegan Sweet Potato Fries PinThese Vegan Sweet Potato Fries are sweet, savory, spicy and delicious! Dip them in our Vegan BBQ Sauce for even more flavor and spice!

We rarely use oil when cooking anymore, but we used 1/2 tsp oil for two sweet potatoes in this recipe. We’ve tried several recipes that don’t use any oil for potato fries, but the fries come out mushy and stick to the pan, and the seasonings don’t stick to the fries.

All it takes is a tiny amount of oil to make them come out crisp and delicious. The trick is to stir the oil into the uncooked sweet potatoes fries first in a large metal or non-sticky bowl to get an even coating before stirring in the seasonings.

I prefer my sweet potato fries a little soft. Cook them a little longer if you want them crispier.

Vegan French Fries

Vegan French Fries PinThese Vegan French Fries are made with very little oil, but they taste delicious. We use just enough oil to coat the fries and make the spices stick. This keeps the calories and fat down, but still delivers a tasty french fry.

This recipe was inspired by the french fries we ate on our trip to Ecuador. Several of the restaurants in Cuenca served french fries that were a lot different than those in the US. They were thick-cut, with a little salt and cooked in very little oil. They didn’t have that greasy texture and flavor of American french fries. We absolutely loved them!

You can easily make this a plain french fry recipe, but we like to add some additional flavor with chili powder and smoked paprika. The smoked paprika gives them a BBQ chip flavor that has always been one of my favorites. We’ve also made them with chipotle seasoning, which gives them a real kick.

They’re delicious plain, or you can dip them in some homemade ketchup or your favorite dipping condiment.

Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Cranberry

Vegan Pumpkin BreadThis Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Cranberries is moist and delicious…and it’s really pumpkin-y! It won’t last 5 minutes at your next holiday gathering!

Pumpkin is a favorite ingredient of mine. Doesn’t matter whether it’s in a pie, a cookie, bread, pudding or anything else. I love it! Amelia made this Vegan Pumpkin Bread at my request because we had a can of pumpkin to use and I couldn’t let it just sit there doing nothing.

The cranberries give it a little extra texture, tartness and sweetness. I’m usually a pumpkin purest, but the cranberries taste really good in it.

Enjoy topped with a little vanilla yogurt or nice-cream.

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cake PinThis vegan gluten free chocolate cake is moist, chocolatey and delicious. There is no way you can tell this cake is both gluten free and vegan. It ranks right up there with the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had.

If gluten isn’t an issue for you, you can probably use regular flour, but that’s not how we made it so we can’t attest to how it’ll turn out.

Using top-notch ingredients is important for any recipe, but none more-so than when baking. You can literally taste and see the difference so spend the extra money and buy high-quality, organic ingredients for your baking recipes. Especially if you’re going to feed them to non-vegans.
