HOMEMADE VEGAN BUTTER {dairy free, gluten free, soy free, vegan}

I cannot explain my EXCITEMENT to share this vegan butter recipe!

Pre-vegan, I was a butter lover. I loved it on toast, sandwiches, crumpets, baked potatoes, scones, potato cakes.. you name it. So it’s been an aim of mine to re-create a vegan butter for a while now, and I’ve finally nailed it!

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with them (in fact they’re brilliant in baking) but I actually don’t think they taste very buttery when spread on toast, etc! Therefore, I wanted to create a slightly healthier buttery alternative – and here it is!

How about spreading some of this vegan butter on a warm slice of my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread? Mmm.

VEGAN LASAGNE WITH A CASHEW BÉCHAMEL {vegan, gluten free}

Layers of tasty lentil bolognese and creamy béchamel between perfectly cooked sheets of pasta – you HAVE to make this! It takes approximately the same amount of time it would take to make a regular lasagne… without harming any innocent animals! It’s a win win.
