2 cups boiling water
2 TBL olive oil
3 TBL nutritional yeast
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, diced
1/2 cup brown onion, finely chopped
onion salt to taste
In a large saucepan, add in all ingredients except for the flour and bring to boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Slowly add in the flour in small amounts, whisking continually to combine and dissolve any lumps. Continue to simmer to desired thickness.
2 cups Silk Soy Vanilla
1 large box (3.8 oz) Dr. Oetker Organic Vanilla Pudding
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 10.14 oz box of SoyaToo Soy Whip (frig section, whip until firm peaks formed & refrigerate until ready to use)
1 graham cracker pie crust (Arrowhead Mills brand is honey and dairy free)
Make pudding on stove according to box directions using the 2 cups of Silk Soy Vanilla Milk. Cool completely before combining with other ingredients. Once chilled, stir pudding and add in pumpkin spice and pumpkin and whisk until combined. Fold in already whipped SoyaToo and combine ingredients. Spread in graham cracker pie crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours and enjoy. Garnish with whip topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
Tip: Sprinkle flaxseed on top of crust before pouring in pudding mixture, or sprinkle a little on top of your piece. Flaxseed adds fiber and omega-3.

2 medium acorn squashes, halved and seeded
2 tsp olive oil, plus 1 TBL
12 oz package of frozen soy crumbles
2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, pressed through a garlic press
3/4 cup bulgur wheat (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
2 cups water
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup fresh italian (flat-leaf) parsley, chopped
2 TBL toasted pine nuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place squashes, cut side down, in a casserole dish or on a cookie sheet. Bake until soft, about 40 minutes.
Heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Add in frozen soy crumbles, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg, and 1 tsp of salt. Stir and cook for a few minutes until heated. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
Add 1 TBL of olive oil to the same pan over medium to high heat, and add in onion. Cook until slightly translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and stir. Add remaining teaspoon of salt and the bulgur and stir to combine. Add in water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low-medium, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes. Once done, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork, then add in soy crumble mixture, raisins, parsley, and pine nuts and stir to combine.
Scrape out baked squashes, leaving 1/4-inch-thick bowls, and fold scooped squash into the bulgur soy crumble mixture and mix well. Place squash bowls on pan and fill each with an even amount of the mixture. Bake 14 minutes until warmed and tops are slightly browned.
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats
¼ cup Earth Balance, softened

Crumble flour oat topping over the berries to cover. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the pie dish to catch any spills. Bake for 65 minutes. Serve warm garnished with a scoop of vanilla soy ice cream or some SoyaToo Rice Whip or Soy Whip topping.

Makes about 3 ½ cups.
1 bag of fresh baby spinach (about 4 cups), stems removed
1/4 cup Silk creamer
1/3 cup vegetable broth
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size cubes
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 14 oz package tofu, extra-firm, rinsed and patted dry
1/8 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp chipotle powder
2 TBL Earth Balance (non-dairy butter)
4 strips of Lightlife Smoky Tempeh Fakin’ Bacon, cut into bite-size pieces
In a large skillet, saute spinach, soy, and vegetable broth over medium heat until wilted. Add potatoes and garlic and continue to cook over medium heat, covered, and stirring occasionally, until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a food processor or blender, puree half of the tofu with the turmeric, salt, pepper, and chipotle powder. Add this mixture to the cooked spinach-potato pan and crumble in the remaining half of the tofu. Mix to combine. Pour mixture into a pan (I like to use a tart pan 9×1.125 in or 22.9×2.9 cm where the bottom pops out for easy removal of the finished product). Bake for 20 minutes. Once done, let the frittata set for about 10 minutes before cutting.
In a small skillet, heat Earth Balance and add in bacon. Fry a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until crispy. Plate a slice of the frittata and garnish the top with tempeh bacon.
Tip: If you do not like spinach, try kale, broccoli, or add in dairy-free cheese. Customize to your liking. Just be sure to top it with the tempeh bacon, as it adds texture and flavor.
