So when you combine this new mission with my slight obsession with my Instant Pot, you get this perfect Instant Pot sushi rice! I’m very happy about it.

Vegan & Gluten-Free

I’m very excited to bring this cauliflower stuffing to our next holiday meal. Especially since my sister-in-law has been eating plant-based for quite some time now. And since she won’t be eating the macaroni and cheese, at least she can enjoy some delicious stuffing. And believe me, this tastes every bit as good as a traditional one.

Vegan Green Bean Casserole

(And it’s Gluten-Free!)

One of the saddest things things I’ve ever experienced was seeing the look on my wife’s face last Thanksgiving when she realized she couldn’t eat the green bean casserole. So it was my mission to create a vegan green bean casserole that our whole family would enjoy, without it tasting like… well, vegan and gluten-free. The secret: was the homemade cream of mushroom soup that has no dairy or flour. It’s so, so good!

Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup

Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup | The Foodie Eats

Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup

I don’t know if there is any ingredient as versatile and beloved as a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup. It can be gravy, sauce, or my personal favorite… the perfect bechamel for pretty much any casserole (like this vegan green bean casserole). There’s just a couple of problems: My wife can’t have gluten and neither of us can have the cream. So what does that mean? I need to create a vegan cream of mushroom soup recipe that is also gluten-free. Not to mention DELICIOUS! Challenge accepted.

Air Fryer Portobello Burger with Basil Pesto-Mayo

Air Fryer Portobello Burger with Basil Pesto-Mayo

You ever have one of those amazing ideas for dinner while eating breakfast? Then you can’t stop thinking about it until it comes to life? Yeah, that happened today. This air fryer portobello burger is everything you want in a burger: flavorful, juicy, messy!

Have Some Fun with the Toppings

Since beginning our plant-based eating, I’ve been dying for mayo. Just Mayo is the best vegan brand I’ve found so far. My wife has also been wanting pesto. So I combined the Minimalist Baker’s Easy Vegan Pesto with the Just Mayo for an INCREDIBLE sauce. I literally ate about 3 spoonfuls. Just because.

And this may seem a little out there, but sautéed spinach on a burger is pretty amazing. It was so much more enjoyable than boring romaine or iceberg lettuce. Not to mention the added value of nutrition.

Bonus: I just learned a new (to me) trick for taming onions. If you soak them in vinegar and water, they become so much more palatable, while maintaining their crunchy texture.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 2 portobello mushroom caps - stems removed
  • 2 ciabatta buns - grilled
  • 1 roma tomato - sliced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach - sautéed

  • 1 cup basil pesto
  • 2 Tbsp. mayo (we used Just Mayo)
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl - whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and salt.
  2. Place mushrooms in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour in marinade, seal bag, and toss to coat thoroughly. Let marinate for 30 minutes, turning once halfway through.
  3. Add portobellos to air fryer basket and cook at 370 degrees for 7 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine pesto and mayo - spread on toasted bun.
  5. Once cook time is complete, remove mushrooms and allow to rest on separate plate for a few minutes. (They will give off quite a bit of liquid, so don't place it on bun too quickly or your buns will go soggy.)
  6. Build your burger just the way you like it. And don't be afraid to switch the toppings! Enjoy!
