Dia’s Gluten Free & Vegan Ravioli with Spicy Haricot Bean Mousse

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Dia's Gluten Free & Vegan RavioliThis is not a traditional pasta dough by any means. Of course that’s because it contains no gluten or eggs. I’ve experimented many times over the past few years on how to get a similar pasta dough to the one I used to make before switching my diet.

Dia's Gluten Free & Vegan Hot Cross BunsIt’s that time of year again…spring has sprung! The snow drops have gone, the croci are just about over and the daffodils are in full bloom. In a couple of weeks my tulips will be out, and it will be Easter. Whether or not you celebrate that holiday, you can still enjoy these delicious hot cross buns.

Dia's Gluten Free & Vegan Yeast DoughnutsOh boy oh boy…what a day I have had making these doughnuts and filming every single part of the process in between. Phew! I’m wiped out, but you know what? After I bit into one of these delicious little doughnuts it all became worth it. I’m not gonna lie though, this is a long process, and that is mainly because this is a recipe for yeast doughnuts not cake doughnuts. No need for one of those popular “donut baking pans” because these are getting fried!

Baked Stuffed ApplesThis is possibly the easiest dessert recipe involving apples that I’ve ever posted, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious! I filmed myself making these in full HD, which I really enjoy doing in addition to taking photographs because it gives you an even better idea what these apples turn into – gorgeous parcels packed full of flavor!
