Kelly, who used to work with me and is now doing some very cool projects, recently found out that her food allergies have limited her to essentially a gluten-free, soy-free vegan diet. We met for coffee the other day and she asked whether I knew of any good gluten-free vegan blogs.
Oh, do I ever.
Now, my body can tolerate the large amounts of gluten I regularly put in it, but it seems like there’s always one person in any given social circle who can’t eat my favorite grains. Since I try to cook for the lowest common denominator and believe you can eat deliciously on any diet, I end up baking sans wheat on occasion.
Plus, there are a lot of gorgeous blogs and cookbooks out there with delicious recipes that just happen to be vegan, gluten- and soy-free.
A few excellent blogs:
- Gluten free, Soy free, Vegan
- Gluten-free vegan family
- Manifest Vegan
- Gluten-free Goddess
- Choosing Raw
- Spa Bettie
- Green Vegan Living
- The Gluten-free Vegan
- Raw on $10 a day (or less)
- Fresh Young Coconut
- The Blissful Chef’s blog (and Blissful Bites)
- Freshly Vegetarian
- Air Eater
- Cupcake Kitteh
- The Allergen-free Baker’s Handbook by Cybele Pascale is full of entirely vegan, gluten-, soy-, and every other common allergen-free recipes.
- Jennifer Cornbleet’s Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 people really does take the intimidation out of raw food.
- xgfx is a great online source of gluten-free vegan recipes.
- I don’t own this and have never cooked from it, but The Gluten-Free Vegan gets good reviews on Amazon, and supposedly has minimal soy, corn, etc.
- Again, I don’t have it, but The Food Allergy Survival Guide looks promising.
- While not entirely gluten- and soy-free, my favorite cookbook du jour, Appetite for Reduction, has a number of clearly labeled gluten-free and soy-free recipes. Also, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World has, hands down, the best gluten-free/soy-free chocolate cupcake on the face of the planet.
- Skydottir Epic Cookies — these delectable bite-sized gluten-free vegan confections currently have soy lecithin in the chocolate chips, but I have on good account (from baker Alison via Twitter) that they will be soy-free in 2012. Sweet!
- Maninis is a local company that sells gluten-free, soy-free flours. They also have a gluten-free baking blog, though not all recipes are vegan (though easily soy-free veganizable if you sub out Ener-G or flax for eggs, 1/3 cup oil for every 1/2 cup butter, and hemp or rice milk for dairy milk).
- Katy swears by Wheatless in Seattle. Their website proclaims “EVERTHING we serve is Gluten-Free and Wheat-Free, and many items are soy free, dairy-free and/or vegan.” I’ve had their muffins, and while I don’t know whether these were soy-free, they were certainly delicious.
- Flying Apron is all gluten-free and vegan, and it looks like many (if not all) options are soy-free! Some of their baked goods are a bit dense and grainy for my taste, but their oreo-like brownies and Macaroni and Chez are to die for.
- Thrive is a vegan restaurant which I am ashamed to say I have never visited. I hear really, really good things, and they have a large raw menu.
- Chaco Canyon is all vegan, and has plenty of gluten-free and raw options, as well as a list of ingredients on hand at the counter. I am a little in love with it.
- Healeo’s pizza is gluten-free and soy-free (and delicious!). They undoubtably serve other gluten- and soy-free delights as well. (added 12/28/11)
