Garlic Rosemary Flatbread

Bread is life. It’s very healing for my soul, and brings me a lot of joy and happiness. 🙏 Plus, it’s just gosh darn delicious and I could eat it for/with every meal! 😺 That’s why I’ve decided to try to make it myself sometimes. I want to unlock the secret to this life fortifying…

First Birthday Post: 3-Day Vegan Meal Plan

Today is An Imperfect Vegan‘s first birthday! It’s so surreal that an entire year has passed since starting this project. It feels like yesterday that I was planning and researching how to make a blog. Since then, I’ve had more than 1,000 views per month from dozens of countries (that might seem like a small…

Greek Salad

Sometimes we’re just craving a great big salad for dinner. Whether it’s because we’ve been eating lots of treats and our bodies are screaming for a vegetable, or if we just want something quick, easy, crisp, and fresh to eat. We’ll often throw together a simple Greek salad (minus the typical feta cheese topping), and…

Easy Balsamic Bruschetta

I’m really yearning for summer over here. Can you tell? Nothing says summer to me like tomatoes, because that’s when they taste so juicy sweet I can eat them like an apple with a little salt. I didn’t go that far, but I was craving some fresh bruschetta. I whipped up this easy balsamic bruschetta…

Vegan Ramen with Tofu

Ramen noodles – not just a college student’s favorite 50 cent insta-meal. Ramen is a wonderful brothy Chinese noodle soup that’s typically topped with pork, eggs, sprouts, green onion, and other various toppings. But with ramen it’s all about the broth, baby. I really try to be an “under an hour” chef so I made…

Cauliflower Spinach Bake

This Cauliflower and Spinach Bake uses just few simple ingredients to create a super healthy and cozy dinner or side dish. It starts with an easy vegan bechamel sauce as its creamy base. Then you add slightly cooked cauliflower and spinach to finish cooking in the rich, creamy sauce. It’s a warm and hearty meal…

Corn and Black Bean Empanadas

Okay, so I think I made something that’s a cross between an empanada and a hand pie. I chose not to fry them – I baked them instead in an effort to be semi-healthy. And as many vegans know, it’s hard to get golden brown pastry in the oven without using an egg wash. (If…

Cinnamon Rolls

These are vegan. And homemade. I know – I can’t believe it either! I’ve never had much luck with using yeast in recipes, but this time it worked out marvelously for these gorgeous cinnamon rolls! I know that the temperature and conditions of your proving location is key. Maybe I just got lucky that my…

Mint Iced Tea

I had mint, and I had lemons, and I had tea bags, and I had a beautiful new pitcher, so I spontaneously decided to make my own sweetened Mint Iced Tea! I am an iced tea lover, and so is hubs, so I knew we’d enjoy having a fresh pitcher in the fridge. But, I…

Lentil Tahini Burgers

Veggie burgers are fascinating to me. In the freezer section of the grocery store, there are always many  different varieties and I have a lot of trouble differentiating them. Do I like Garden Vegetable flavor? Chipotle Black Bean? California? Or do I want the “Just Like Meat” versions of the veggie burger? As a vegetarian/vegan,…
