Guest Post: Manifest Vegan

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 26, 2011

Please welcome Allyson from the delicious Manifest Vegan blog! I’ve been drooling over Allyson’s vegan and GF creations for over a year now and she’s here today to talk about her 5 favourite summer-friendly vegan recipes. Enjoy!

[Mocha Ice Cream Sandwiches]

My name is Allyson Kramer and I’m the founder, recipe developer, and photographer behind the vegan and gluten-free recipe blog Manifest Vegan, as well as the author of the upcoming cookbook ‘Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats’ (Fair Winds Press, Spring 2012). My passion is creating recipes that demonstrate how vegan and gluten-free food can be easy, tasty, and fun! When I’m not in the kitchen I love getting outside to enjoy nature or settling down with a good food-related read.

Here are 5 vegan and gluten-free recipes that you can enjoy all summer long!

This decadent tart is easy to make and highlights some sensational summer flavors: raspberry and sage!

Perfect for early or late summer when green tomatoes are abundant, these turnovers are gluten-free and packed with flavor.

This refreshing salsa will surely delight with its fruity, yet sophisticated, flavor combination.

Purslane is the star of this vermicelli salad, packing a hefty nutritional boost to this colorful concoction.

This falafel plays off of a traditional hummus flavor, garlic and roasted red pepper. Delicious baked or fried.

Happy Cooking!

I discovered falafel from your blog and have it almost every week. I also have my own ‘Oh She Glows’ cookery file of recipes I have printed from your website. Every time I read a post I get hungry even if I’ve only just eaten!


Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine July 27, 2011 at 1:47 pm

Those falafel are seriously calling out to me. Sounds like dinner :)


Rachel @ Eats, Sweats, Peas July 27, 2011 at 2:11 pm
