Better Bites Bakery

After her son was diagnosed with serious food allergies, Leah Lopez started testing recipes for delicious allergen-free desserts. When friends and family members tried her cookie dough bites, they encouraged her to turn the venture into a business, and little did she know, Better Bites Bakery would become such a household name. From cookie dough bites and cupcake bites to full-sized cakes, these vegan, gluten-free treats do not disappoint!

Pixie Retreat

You may know Pixie Retreat as a vegan cafe in Portland, but they’ve recently transitioned to a vegan food brand with products sold online and in stores. The L’il Puddin’ dessert cups are made from coconut and cashew cream, maple syrup, Irish moss, a dash of vanilla, and flavor-specific ingredients. With varieties such as Brownie Sundae, Chocolate Almond Butter, and Strawberry Shortcake, it’s no secret these health-forward desserts are a hit.

Sorbet tastes better coated in vegan chocolate! If you agree, you’ll want to get your hands on the vegan sorbet bars from this women-owned brand.

This vegan food brand’s iconic MacroBars were invented out of necessity by mother-daughter duo Amelia Kirchoff and Jola Sonkin. Kirchoff was diagnosed with cancer, and her daughter encouraged her to adopt a plant-based macrobiotic diet to help combat it. Kirchoff is now cancer-free and the recipe for her nutritious vegan snack bars has made it far and wide under the GoMacro brand. What an inspiring story!

Realm

We love a smoothie moment, but they’re not always the easiest and quickest meal to make. Thanks to Elise Tresley and Lauren Benbassat, there is now a way to make a vegan smoothie in under two minutes that has the ideal amount of protein, complex carbohydrates, fibers, and healthy fats per serving. How? Realm takes freeze-dried fruits, veggies, nuts, and protein and crushes them into a shelf-stable powder. All you have to do is take a scoop of the powder, mix it with water or plant-based milk, and enjoy!

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
