Nacho Cheese Dip [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on August 19, 2014, 3 comments

Do you ever have food that you eat all the time and assume that everyone else knows about it, when really – they don’t – because you totally made it up?  That’s how I feel about this nacho cheese dip.  It’s made out of (typical vegan) pantry staples – which means – I can make it just […]

Summer Vegetable Risotto [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on August 12, 2014, 4 comments

Let’s face it.  Risotto is pretty stinkin’ awesome. Why I really love risotto, though, is for its versatility.  It handles just about any vegetable or spice you throw at it with grace and confidence.  A few weeks back we picked up our Wednesday CSA box, and then I went out of town for the weekend. […]

Gluten Free “White” Bread, Revisited [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on August 5, 2014, 3 comments

I have had a recipe for gluten free “white” bread for whipping up in my bread machine for over a year.  The recipe has been reliable, and comes out great every time.  The only thing I disliked about the bread recipe was that the bread came out with a slight gummy-texture.  Toasting the bread fixed […]

Butternut Squash Curry Soup [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on July 22, 2014, 5 comments

I, personally, can eat soup at any time of the year.  Even in the heat of summer – a nice vegetable-filled bowl of soup is always perfect to lift my spirits.   Nathan, on the other hand, tends to prefer soup only when it’s cold.  Really really cold.  I can – usually – sneak a […]

Butternut Squash Risotto [In the Rice Cooker or Instant Pot] [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on July 15, 2014, 75 comments

Risotto is a pretty awesome rice dish.  The truth, though, is that I would probably never make it if I had to make it the traditional way, which involves stirring, and an abundance of time. Luckily I have two devices that will make risotto for me: my Zojirushi Rice Cooker and my Instant Pot. The latter has become […]

Homemade Fresh Vegetable Salsa [Vegan/Gluten Free]

[Confession Time] < I have a serious addiction to chips and salsa.  I mean – I knew it was bad – but after I made this salsa one Saturday morning…and then sat down and ate every last bite other the tiny bit I restrained myself from to use to take these pictures – I realized I seriously […]

Grain Free Granola Clusters [Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free]

As we talked about last week.  Yogurt = Awesome. …But …Yogurt + Granola = even more awesome. I like to pack yogurt & granola to take to work – and my cuppow bnto makes keeping them separate until ready to eat easy-peasy ūüôā The only problem with most granola is oats.  Yeah.  I know they make gluten free oats. […]

If you’re looking for the “how to” keep scrolling past the “FAQ”. Soy Yogurt FAQ I get questions about the Instant Pot yogurt almost every day, so I thought I’d add an FAQ section right here at the top for people.  Let me know if I missed one of your questions!  0 – Where do I […]
