10 – Superhero Savory Pan-Fried Mochi

If you’re looking for an easy, delicious snack that travels well, try it. It’s so great, and you can make it quickly at home. It’s Bear’s favorite food! This is recipe is a twist on the version in my book (pg. 237).

9 – Vegan S’Mores


Of course the s’mores you may have had around the campfire as kids weren’t vegan, but it’s pretty easy to make a kind version of this treat. 8 – Apple Pie Pancakes



This recipe came from Isa Chandra of Post Punk Kitchen. They look like a nice treat for brunch!

I forgot about this salad, but I used to make it all the time and I made it again recently. It’s so delicious and ridiculously simple. 6 – BBQ Tempeh Sandwiches Topped With Multi-Colored Slaw



I got this BBQ sandwich recipe from PETA. Steph from The Kind Life Web Team team tried it and said it was amazing.

This recipe came to us from Kind Lifer FoodnFriends. Bread crumbs, black beans and yummy fried goodness! 4 – Sweet Potato Tempeh Burgers



This burger recipe was from the sweet kind lifers Lindsay and Steven’s blog Kiss Me I’m Vegan and it looks like a great one to try for a casual Sunday dinner.

3 – Sweet Potato Tater Tots With Chipotle Aioli


This dish came from the blog Vegan Yack Attack. You could make these as a snack or bring them to your next potluck. I haven’t tried them yet, but they look interesting and tasty! 2 – Frozen Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake



Kind lifer Stephanie posted this recipe for a frozen strawberry lemon cheesecake and it looks delicious…so pretty and fresh-looking! The original recipe called for raw honey, but I’ve substituted agave in this version.
