If you're not a vegan, you won't miss what's not in these light, lemony cookies! At first pass I used granulated white sugar for these cookies, only to learn many vegans don't use refined sugar. I suggest using turbinado (also known as raw) sugar.  The batter may seem too wet for cookie dough, but resist the urge to add more flour. You won't regret it!

Vegan Blueberry Pie
Here's a delicious blueberry pie that also happens to be vegan. It's the perfect summertime treat when blueberries are at their peak. And here's a neat tip: When creating a lattice pie top, dip your fingers in a little bit of water to moisten the edge of the pie before laying down the strips. Use short strips for the edges.

Vegan Mushroom Gravy
This vegan gravy goes well with our Pretzel- and Cashew-Crusted Tofu, but feel free to experiment and try it on other protein mains as well, or maybe just serve it over pasta. Sautéed mushrooms give this gravy the meatiness it deserves. Click here to see A Vegetarian Thanksgiving.

Vegan Hazelnut Cupcakes
We want to say these cupcakes are totally European with all these hazelnuts, mocha mousse filling, and dark chocolate. So much so that you’ll need to eat these wearing a black turtleneck and driving a tiny but amazingly fuel-efficient car, but who are we kidding… they’re just really yummy. The filling recipe is a variation of the Chocolate Mousse Topping and it makes more than you’ll be able to stuff into twelve cupcakes. But since when did people start complaining about a little leftover chocolate mocha mousse? Use it for dessert the next day. Adapted from “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World” by Isa Chandra Moskovitz and Terry Hope Romero.

Vegan Lasagna
Sometimes the perfect cure for winter gloom is a steaming plate of melty lasagna. Unfortunately, for those who choose a dairy-free diet, its main ingredient is cheese. There's a way around that, though. Cheese substitutes are readily available and are just as good as the real thing. Make this recipe and you'll please vegans, vegetarians, and even meat-eaters. Take it from my roommates, who said, “I don't miss the meat!” The empty dish says it all.  Click here to see The Slow Cooker Challenge.

Vegan Nachos
Loaded with tons of cheese and sour cream, nachos aren't usually a vegan-friendly option. Until now. A flavorful sauce made from raw cashews, spiced up with jalapeños and jarred pimentos, makes a perfect dairy-free alternative. Click here to see The Ultimate Guide to Nachos.
