The flavor holds up and stays fresh until they are gone. You can refrigerate them for a few days, too. These doughnuts are delicious, light, and non-greasy – doughnuts that everyone will love. […]

Three Variations on Vegan Parmesan

I love having cheezy vegan parmesan to sprinkle on pasta, pizza and veggies. It just adds that little bit of “oomph” to a dish. And since it’s made with nuts and nutritional yeast, it actually adds nutrients to your meal! I made vegan parmesan for the first time this week – I’m so glad I […]
