Here’s a recipe that will (hopefully) blow your minds. Not just because it’s so darn delicious, but also because the traditional cheese has been replaced by a sauce made of potatoes, butternut squash and nutritional yeast (among other things). How is it even possible that you can make something this yummy with such simple ingredients?! We’ve shared before that we’re not big fans of vegan substitutes in general (soy mince excluded) and vegan cheese in particular, so the fact that this actually worked and turned out so scrumptious is almost too good to be true. But it’s not. Vegan mac and cheese, you guys. And not one bit complicated or time consuming either. Just go make it. Good luck!

Our quest to veganize Christmas treats continues, and boy, is it both fun and fruitful. Last year’s chocolate truffles (with black beans hiding in the batter) got very popular (among you just as much as among ourselves) and now we’ve moved on to the queen of all things sweet and creamy: fudge. As the massive fans of oat cream as we’ve become, we thought we simply had to give oat cream based fudge a try. And can you believe that it worked so freaking well? We couldn’t, but after one too many sample pieces, it started to… sink in, so to speak.

The holiday season is here and what better way to kick it off than by having some crunchy, chocolatey and minty popcorn? This cute treat comes together nice and easy, and could perhaps even be a fun thing to whip up together as a family – provided an adult supervises the double boiler on the stove, that is. The end result is perfect to serve in a big bowl when sitting down on the couch on a Saturday night to watch a Christmas movie, for example, but also as part of a party spread. We just love the look of the crushed up candy cane and all the childhood memories that are being brought to life.

We have a widely popular recipe for Vegan Swedish Meatballs using soy mince, but we’re pretty excited about this alternative as well: same flavor, same level of yumminess – but the main ingredient is black lentils. Perfect for anyone preferring the whole food approach or those with a soy allergy, for example – or heck, for all of us enjoying a budget option!

No Christmas buffet spread without meatballs – at least not here in Sweden. Good thing it’s easy breezy to make a vegan version so 1. everyone can enjoy them and 2. we can celebrate Christmas in that sustainable fashion we like so much. Some allspice and a pinch of ground cloves and the holiday feels are left, right and center – and don’t forget the batter is excellent to prepare in advance for a stress free celebration. You can even fry them up in advance too, and then just freeze them. The same goes for any leftovers, of course – just pop them in the freezer and enjoy again another day.

Can one serve pizza as part of a holiday spread and not feel one bit embarrassed? Yes. Especially if it features Brussels sprouts, caramelized red onion and thyme, as all these doubtlessly bring on the Christmas vibes. We actually think a sort of “artisan” pizza cut into small slices make an excellent addition to just about any gathering in December – it’s beautiful, it’s simple to make and it’s a perfect opportunity to both highlight seasonal produce AND minimize food waste. Because honestly: what CAN’T go on pizza?

Gingerbread. A must in December, in our humble opinion, and one of the easiest treats to whip up, too – you get lots of holiday spirit for very little effort, one could say. What are some other musts? Well, you’re talking to Mr and Mrs Christmas so sit back, relax and listen to our long list. Saffron buns, of course. Gingersnaps, without a doubt. Chocolate truffles, definitely (and as ours use black beans in the batter, they technically count as vegetables). Fudge, thank you very much. And of course Brussels sprouts and saffron-spiked kale salads en masse, to balance things a bit.

Mm, some warming spices paired with a perfectly chewy lentil-grain mix, sweet and ginger-y carrots and a creamy dressing on top – sounds like food heaven to us. And despite the multiple components to this recipe, it comes together nice and quick too, and the prepping doesn’t include much advanced stuff at all. A weeknight winner for sure, but also interesting enough to qualify as a Saturday night dinner or perhaps as something to cook someone who “doesn’t like vegetarian food”. We always find that comment funny. You mean you don’t like potatoes? Or pasta?
För recept på svenska, klicka här: Picklad rödlök
Makes 1 pint size jar
2 medium red onions (200 g), cut in half and then thinly sliced
1 1/2 dl white wine or apple cider vinegar (or a mix of both)
1 1/2 dl water
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
- Pace the thinly sliced onions in a glass jar (any airtight, food grade container will do, but we prefer glass because it doesn’t hold smell). Choose a container that you’ll more or less fill up over one where you’ll only fill up the bottom. For this, a 5 dl/pint size jar is appropriate.
- In a small saucepan, stir together water, vinegar(s), salt and sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove it from the heat.
- Pour the hot liquid into the jar, filling up so it covers the onions entirely. Screw on a lid and allow to cool before placing it in the fridge.

If you want to go ahead and call us taco obsessed, feel free. We’d be the first ones to admit to it. Most weeks, we have tacos for Friday night dinner, actually, and we let the season and our garden together determine what goes in them. This means we’ve tried our fair share of combinations over the years, to say the least, and whenever we’ve come across an especially awesome filling or combination of yummy things, we’ve made sure to turn them into recipes. In our index, you can find recipes for e.g. Cauliflower & Corn Tacos, Smoky Lentil Mushroom Tacos and Loaded Veggie Tacos, but if we had to pick a favorite, it’d be difficult to not say these Vegan “Fish” Tacos With Breaded Celery Root, Cabbage and Lime Sauce. If you close your eyes, you can almost feel the sand in between your toes, see the sunset and hear the waves come crashing in. Nothing like grabbing some food at a taco shack after a day at the beach – or at least that’s how cool we used to be back in our NYC days. Now? Rag socks and couch time thank you very much. Add in some sourdough prep and we need nothing else. Life, huh.
