Vegan Madeleines

In French, “Madeleine” means “small rich shelled cake” and “something which brings back a memory; a source of nostalgia or evocative memories”. Make it vegan, and you have the perfect addition to a mid-day cup of coffee or evening tea. The perfect fall & winter addition!

I’ve had Madeleine on my “to-make” list for a while; this small—yet oh–so delightfully delectable recipe that you’re going to want to bake up throughout the upcoming fall & winter months!

Cozy up with your current read, fuzzy soaks, a warm blanket, a cup of tea and truly enjoy these delicate little cakes! My 9 year old daughter is learning French, so this recipe was also integrated into our French studies— a yummy win-win!

Bon appétit!

My Favorite Vegan Kitchen Gadgets

As a vegan, who is passionate about both healthy and equally delicious food, I have accumulated a list of very helpful kitchen gadgets that have made vegan cooking fun and easy—as well as time-saving, which all of us Mommas’ need more of in our lives!

Learning how to cook new recipes and completely plant-based may seem challenging at first, but it is actually very easy and can be really fun as you explore new flavors and items, as well as new kitchen gadgets to take advantage of!

All of My Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

1.High-speed Blender: I am absolutely in love with my Blendtec!  It makes my morning green smoothies easy and fast, which the whole family is very thankful for! It is basically what I use for a food processor too, and can even make blended soups and sauces—which you’re going to want for creamy vegan sauces! Also—my daughter’s favorite: Nice Cream—blended frozen bananas that make an ice cream consistency!

2. Cast iron skillet: Not only does it add a source of iron to your cooking, I swear it adds better flavor and all-around cooks everything tastier! I also love that you can make one skillet meals and you can put it in your oven if you want to.

3. Spiralizer: Because who doesn’t like zoodles, or at least saying the word zoodles?! I also enjoy making curly fries for the kiddos with this fun gadget!

4. Good knife set: Makes chopping those fruits and veggies are breeze! I love this colorful & durable set. I also recommend sharping them monthly.

5. Bamboo cutting boards: Bamboo cutting boards are what I prefer to chop on and will last a long time, they’re also pretty!

6. Collapsible strainer: This colorful handy dandy collapsible strainer has a minimal profile, so easy storage!

7. Instant Pot: Multi-functioning, easy, and fast are all things that this amazing kitchen gadget is capable of. You can make rice, soup, chili, yogurt, popcorn, pasta, steamed potatoes & vegetables, beans, and even vegan cheesecake! I’m always learning new ways to use my instant pot and am absolutely in love with it!

You’ll find all of my favorite kitchen gadgets on my The Vegan Momma Amazon Shop

In future posts, I’ll be sharing with you specific recipes that you’ll be able to make with some of these fun gadgets! Happy vegan cooking y’all!
