Vegan Spicy Pierogi Pizza

Pizza, pierogies, and spice. What more could you possibly want? Well aside from pairing this pizza with an ice cold beer. Prior to going plant based one of our favourite pizzas was the Spicy Pierogi Pizza from Boston Pizza and while Boston Pizza has been testing vegan cheese at various locations they do not offer any other vegan alternatives such as the bacon and sour cream on this pizza.

We decided to re-create the Spicy Pierogi Pizza using completely plant based ingredients. No its not super healthy but yes it is super good.

Vegan Sushi with Tomato “Tuna”

I have made vegan sushi many times before but have always stuck to simple rolls with various veggies and tofu. This time I was going to get fancy.

I decided to make three types of sushi: Avocado Rolls, Spicy “Tuna” Rolls, and “Tuna Nigiri”. Check out the recipes below!

Vegan Perishke – Ukrainian Cottage Cheese Buns made Plant Based

vegan perishke with creamy cashew dill sauce

Perishke is my all time favourite Ukrainian food. I could eat it for days on end and not get sick of it. It is served at almost every holiday dinner, but of course, it’s tough to get a bunch of old Ukrainians to give up cheese and cream, so I decided to try to veganize the traditional dish using a crumbled tofu filling and a cashew cream sauce.

The first time I served it for family my brother’s girlfriend said, “How is this vegan if there is cheese in it?” She totally fell for the tofu substitute! Got ’em!
