This sweet potato arugula salad is the perfect quick and healthy mid-week lunch, that you can prepare in just 15 minutes! With a hack to make the most amazing “roasted” sweet potatoes (in only 10 minutes) and with the creamiest 4-ingredient peanut butter dressing, this gluten free + vegan arugula salad makes eating healthy the easiest thing in the world.
Okay, so… hear me out. Brownies are awesome. Making a kickass vegan cake is the best feeling ever. Marshmallow brownies are the stuff sweet, sweet dreams are made of. It’s all true. But, on a random Tuesday, when you’re still having flashbacks to allthesugar and allthebaking that happened over the weekend… the last thing you want to see is more brownies. Ugh. No.
Plus, balance. The word is thrown around like confetti nowadays. But with all the running around and the stressing out and the (attempted) adulting, balance sounds just about perfect. Therefore: salad.
This gluten free vegan vanilla cake recipe is THE recipe to have on hand if you have any kind of food allergy or intolerance, or if you follow a vegan lifestyle. With a fluffy, moist sponge cake (no egg substitutes!) and a delicious coconut cream frosting, this basic recipe can be modified to make other types of cake, as well (think coffee, or red velvet)… but this simple vegan vanilla cake version with summer berries is pretty spectacular on its own.
A cake with no eggs, no butter, and no wheat flour. Huh? Yes, we’re kinda removing the crucial bits that make a cake… a cake. And listen – I get your scepticism and your doubts. And if you’ve had a gluten free+vegan cake fail before, I feel your frustration too. But here’s the thing: even if you can’t eat gluten, eggs and/or dairy, you still deserve an epic kickass cake.
Apparently, this is something we need to talk about.
Also, spoiler alert:
EGGS ARE NOT DAIRY.
Over the last few months, I’ve received a fair number of outraged messages that basically boiled down to a few main points: I am misleading people (and am therefore a truly horrible person), eggs are dairy, and most of my dairy free recipes are not actually dairy free. Because eggs. Obviously.

It’s no secret that I have something of a sweet tooth. In fact, “something of a sweet tooth” is a huge understatement – a quick browse through my recipes will reveal that my sweet tooth is well and alive… and thriving. But in order to gain balance and feel good, a fair number of the desserts I make (and love) are healthy.
