Vegan Desserts

Just because you eat a vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the good stuff. In fact, all it means is that you can have more of the good stuff!

Top 10 Tofu Noodles Recipes

Tofu noodles, or Shirataki noodles as they are often called, look like spaghetti but are made from soybean curd and the blended root of the kinnyaku, a yam-like vegetable found in Asia. They are considerably healthier and lower in calories than traditional pasta, and have become increasingly popular in recent years.

Here are a few recipes that prove that vegan casseroles can be just as easy and delicious as the ones Mom used to make.
