1. Orange Saffron Bread Pudding

The flavors in this Orange Saffron Bread Pudding by Elaine Skiadas are so special and unique that it’s one of my all-time favorite desserts. Almost like a sweet stuffing, leftover bread soaks up a saffron-spiked coconut custard laced with orange zest, vanilla and warming spices. Every bite is soft and gooey with a little crunch from the golden-brown top. Perfect for the holidays or another special occasion where you’re aiming to impress. If possible, use a loaf of high-quality vegan white sandwich bread that’s free of any preservatives and hasn’t been presliced. A local bakery or the bakery section of a grocery store is your best bet.   Credit: Reprinted with permission from Fantastic Vegan Recipes for the Teen Cook by Elaine Skiadas.

Baking the tofu rather than frying it uses far less oil to get the perfect level of crispness in these Crispy Tofu Tacos and Chopped Salsa Salad by Alan Desmond. You can whisk or mash the avocado dressing with a fork, but using a blender will guarantee a super-smooth result.

Looking for a healthy alternative to your beloved potato fries and ketchup? Look no further than these lightly browned tofu batons for a filling snack or light meal. Air frying the tofu ensures the finish is perfect and the amount of oil minimal. Tossing the tofu in cornstarch creates a coating that crisps up, and the added spices infuse every bite. Don’t skip the homemade ketchup dipping sauce; you might want to double the recipe because these Tofu Fries with Chili Lime Ketchup by Michelle Anderson is absolutely addictive.

There are few things in this world that we can safely say everyone agrees on but one of that small collection of objective truths is this: french fries are tasty.

These Crispy Oil-Free Garlic Fries by Rae have salty, crispy crunchy outsides, soft insides, and none fat and oil that normal french fries have. So go on, indulge yourself.
