Easy Vegan Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Vegan Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake Recip

Although worth the time, cinnamon rolls can be a very time-consuming task! This vegan cinnamon roll coffee cake is every bit as good but without having to spend all morning baking! It takes about 10 – 15 minutes to assemble and 20-25 minutes to bake! I just whipped some up for Easter morning… although I did have to taste it, but only to make sure it was good! ūüėČ and oh was it ever!

Instead of making it in a pan, you could also use a cupcake tin for individual servings!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup unsweetend applesauce
1 replaced egg w/ Ener-g Egg or your favorite egg replacer
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I use rice milk)
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 recipe spicy topping (below)
1 recipe Glaze (below)

Directions:
Combine applesauce, vegan egg, and non-dairy milk. Mix together dry ingredients then add to milk mixture and mix well. Spray 9x9x2 inch pain with non-stick spray and pour mixture into it. Sprinkle with spicy topping making sure to cover all areas. With a spoon (or your finger!) gently poke some of the topping down a little into the flour mixture. Bake at 375¬į for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before drizzling glaze on top.

Spicy Topping:
Mix together 2 Tbsp melted vegan butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp flour, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, until well combined. The mixture will be crumbly.

Glaze:
Combine 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar and 3 Tbsp water and whisk until smooth.

Vegan Caldo Recipe – a.k.a “Beef” Soup

vegan caldo recipe | easy vegan recipes

Growing up in a Hispanic family, Sundays and family gatherings meant Caldo. Caldo is a traditional Mexican beef and vegetable soup using beef shank and large cuts of veggies.

This vegan version is just as hearty but more nutritious! Feel free to skip the “beef”. I used it in the soup I made last night but normally don’t include it…. it really doesn’t need it! I’ve also added a few less traditional veggies and barley to mine but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. My husband likes his with only corn, potatoes, tomato, and green beans (the staples – don’t skip those! If you don’t like¬†tomatoes¬†add an 8 oz can of tomato juice instead). I try to add as many vegetables as possible into mine though! Also, the amounts are just guides, use more or less of what you like.

This really is an easy recipe… add broth to a pot, throw in veggies, cook, eat, enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 package Gardein Beefless Tips (optional)
1/3 cup non-dairy milk (only if using beefless tips)
1/3 cup flour(only if using beefless tips)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup minced onion
6 cups vegan not-beef broth (I like Edwards & Sons)
1 large tomato, diced (or 1- 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes or 8oz tomato juice)
5 carrots, cut into chunks
3 potatoes, cut into chunks
1 cup green beans, halved
1 turnip, diced
2 kale leaves, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1/2 head cabbage, sliced
1/2 cup barley
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
In a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the 1/4 cup of water and diced onion. Saute onion until translucent. Add the Add the broth, carrots, potatoes, corn, and green beans. Simmer until vegetables are tender. About 10 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and barley and simmer an additional 10-15 minutes until vegetables are cooked to your liking. Salt & pepper to taste.

Gardein Beefless Tips | Vegan Beef Tips

For the “beef”. Add non-dairy milk to a bowl and the flour to a separate bowl. Dip the beefless tips into the milk then coat in flour. Saute in frying pan sprayed with a non-stick spray over medium-high heat and cook until flour is no longer white and the tips are warmed – about 5-8 minutes. Add to soup with the second batch of vegetables and barley.

Eat it with some warm corn tortillas and avocado!
