There’s nothing like a creamy, dreamy dish of homemade mac and cheese — unless, of course, you’re vegan or dairy doesn’t do your body good. But thanks to this out-of-the-box recipe, anyone can enjoy this childhood favorite. Instead of cheddar, it’s made with cauliflower “cheeze,” cleverly blended from fresh florets, nutritional yeast and almond milk to mimic the smooth texture and savory-sweet taste of dairy cheese.

So many reasons to try an occasional meat-free meal: Save money, help the planet, add variety to your life. Sound good? This pasta dish is made with delicious and wholesome vegan ingredients for a meal you can feel really good about eating. If non-GMO soy products aren’t available, this dish is just as delicious made with extra veggies and sauce in place of vegan “cheese.”
At the top of the comfort foods list (right next to mac ‘n’ cheese and mashed potatoes) is a dish you may have loved as a kid: pot pie. But making one usually means pulling a preservative-packed, frozen concoction from a box—not something that makes you very happy today. Here’s an alternative to letting a favorite dish live on in your memory. These mini pot pies are fresh and easy to make, filled with tasty veggies and topped with a homemade, gluten-free crust.
When it comes to dessert, it’s OK to be greedy. Make this single serving of chocolate pudding to spoil yourself with something sweet after a long day of sticking with a tricky diet. Your taste buds won’t know it’s anything other than a little bowl of bliss, but your body will thank you for the extra protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3s.
Pad thai isn’t exactly hard to find — pick up the phone, pick up your order. But if you want a mind-blowingly delicious dish, look no further than your kitchen. This veggie-packed variation of the classic Asian fave is made with a spicy coconut-peanut sauce that will give anyone’s taste buds a kick. Best of all, it’s 100% vegan and gluten free.
Little white cartons are cute, but takeout can be costly—and the food’s never as tasty as when it’s homemade. Stir up an Asian creation of your own with healthier ingredients, better flavor and a swift kick of spice (if that’s the way you like it!). It’s a great way to use up brown rice leftover from last night’s dinner, or lonely veggies lurking in that produce drawer.
Pot pie is one of those comfort foods that warms our bellies and bones during the cold winter months. My version is filled with nourishing sweet potatoes and black beans loaded with fiber, antioxidants and healthy protein. The cornmeal crust complements the flavors and spices perfectly, while also making this dish a crowd-pleaser, especially if you have gluten-free guests!
