One of my favorite things to do as a vegan (food blogger) is to put together veganized versions of nonvegan favorites and classics– from sweet to savory, it can be done and I’ll show you how!
From my experience, showing others that they can still enjoy their favorite foods just in a plant-based form has been the most convincing way for me to encourage them to eat more plant based foods. It removes the stigma of “healthy” and “bland” and it opens their mind to the wonders of vegan cooking!
One of my friends back home was raving about these cheesecake brownies that she made over the holidays and immediately in my mind I thought “challenge accepted”. I knew that I had to not only work to create a vegan version of the recipe to share on the blog, but to also create a version that will encourage her to try out more plant based foods since it was one of her goals in 2020.
I’ve heard the phrase “anything you can do I can do vegan” and honestly with all of the plant based options and developments in this day and age, it’s so true!
For example, I used to shop at Kroger stores all of the time before I went vegan and guess what, I still can because their stores are not only filled with plant based options, but they have their own Simple Truth Plant Based line that has everything you need to veganize your favorite recipes. It makes me so happy to see plant based options that are not only easily accessible, but affordable! People have the misconception that plant-based cooking is expensive but I disagree– you can totally do it on a budget!
I was challenged by Kroger to create recipes using their Simple Truth Plant Based items and today I will be highlighting their plant based cream cheese alternative. The cheesecake brownies I came up with are not only decadent and packed with flavor, but they also just so happen to be vegan and gluten-free, so everyone can enjoy it!
