Vegan Sofritos – (Chipotle Copycat)

Hola mi amigas, today I’m here to share with you an easy, and delicious recipe for vegan sofritos. I recall that when I first became a vegetarian my boyfriend and I took a trip to AZ to visit his family. When we first landed we were STARVING and there were very few veg friendly options near where we were so we opted for Chipotle. (I was never a HUGE fan of them, but it’ll do in a crunch.) – so I decided to get a burrito with the sofritos and some other goodies, when we arrived to our destination…

Vegan Cornbread

This is a long overdue recipe on WildSunflowerChef. It’s taken me about 4-5 different attempts to perfect my vegan cornbread recipe; but it’s finally done! I don’t know about you but cornbread is one of those side dishes that is very much needed for many meals. As a side dish for soul food, sopping up chili, or cut up into cubes served over milk. (<–yes that’s some real country sh**, but thats how my family gets down.)Just like most of the other recipes on this blog this recipe is super simple to make…

Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole

My favorite side dish EVER has always been sweet potatoes. This vegan sweet potato casserole is my childhood wrapped in one recipe. Unlike the sweet potatoes I grew up eating; usually just chunks of potato in sweet spiced syrup topped with gooey marshmallows. This vegan sweet potato casserole is a tad bit healthier and has so many different flavors and textures it makes me giggle with joy just thinking about it.Traditional marshmallows use gelatin which is usually made from the skin and bones from pigs, which has collagen – which in greek means “glue”. LONG STORY SHORT that’s the…

Meatloaf is one of those meals that always brings back so many childhood memories. I have wanted to share a vegan meatloaf recipe on the blog for some time now.

This meatloaf was so similar to the original that I grew up with (taste wise) and the texture was perfect.Like most of my other “meat” recipes this vegan meatloaf uses green lentils as the meat substitute.
