It can be used to make jellies, flans, mousse, vegan ice cream, vegan cheeses, vegan cheesecake, jams without sugar, sauces, and broth. The possibilities are endless with agar agar.

Berry season, A.K.A the best season, is almost upon us! Berries are so versatile. Blueberry and lemon go so well together. Not only does lemon complement blueberries, but it also brings out more blueberry flavor. Which is obviously a good thing. Especially in baked goods where flavors can get lost. This One-Bowl Blueberry Lemon Loaf by Megan Calipari is incredibly moist, tender, and light. It bakes up SO nicely with the lightest crisp top. Swap out the blueberries for any berry you like.
6. Buffalo Cauliflower Calzones with Cashew Blue Cheese

A Buffalo Cauliflower Calzones with Cashew Blue Cheese by Kristy Turner is the key to blowing their minds! With that super-spicy “Buffalo” flavor, no one cares whether it’s chicken or cauliflower—especially when it’s coated in a nutty chickpea flour crust and stuffed in a soft, doughy pizza pocket along with a healthy amount of tangy Cashew Blue Cheese. Need to impress an omnivore? Make this.
7. Champagne Cake With Roasted Blueberries
