Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream

Hello everyone,

Looking for a place to grab an iced soy latte, vegan-friendly lunch, or perhaps a sweet treat? Check out my updated list of my favorite vegan-friendly places around Northeast Ohio under Vegan Cleveland. Just added—Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Mitchell's Homemade Ice CreamAh, summer. A time to relax, spend time with friends, and enjoy ice cream on a hot day. Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream serves up summer treats using only the best locally sourced organic ingredients. Plus, they generally have two vegan flavors, currently vegan salted caramel pecan and chocolate. Looking for a fruiter option? Mitchell’s also makes sorbet (lemon, mango, and raspberry) without dairy and it’s fat free!

I highly recommend getting a single scoop of the vegan salted caramel pecan on a sugar cone! The rich coconut milk flavored with homemade toasted pecan butter, caramelized brown sugar and sea salt is delicious! You’ll fool all your dairy loving friends with this sweet treat! Next time you’re in Northeast Ohio be sure to give this local ice cream parlor a try!

Cheers,

Jocelyn

Vegan in Warsaw

Hello fellow travelers,

In May, I was lucky enough to head to Warsaw, Poland for a few days. While I didn’t have much time to sightsee, I made sure I was able to visit a few baroque palaces and gardens, the Uprising Museum, and of course, eat at a few vegan-friendly restaurants. Being vegan in Warsaw, I was expecting to find vegan versions of Polish staples like dumplings and perogies. Instead, I found a wealth of Italian, Mediterranean, and asian vegan cuisine. And it was excellent! Below is a brief collection of restaurants and mouth watering photos to go with them!

Enjoy, fellow vegan travelers!

Recipe: Vegan Zucchini Roll Ups

Hello everyone,

If you know me, you know that I love pasta, but sometimes I want something a little lighter with drastically less carbs. Spiralized carrot or zucchini is certainly on trend, but for whatever reason I simply want my noodles to taste like noodles. I can’t help it! Not to worry – there are many other healthy pasta alternatives, and my new favorite is a hearty helping of vegan zucchini roll ups.

This recipe includes all the flavor you seek in an Italian dinner, but no heavy pasta. You simply use finely sliced zucchini, sort of like a lasagna strip. The dish also includes my new favorite nut cheese which uses a mixture of pepitas, tofu, and Daiya mozzerella. It’s so, so good, and it’s much better for you than traditional ricotta cheese. Aside from the rich flavor, the best part of this recipe is that it has a quick cook time, and the “rolling” is actually quite fun.

I think this would be the perfect dish to make with your loved ones help! Please give it a try and let me know what you think!

Cheers and happy cooking!

Recipe: Vegan Basil Rhubarb Crisp

Hello everyone,

It’s summer and that means one thing—it’ time to make crisps and crumbles full of unique flavors! I recently visited my local farmers market and was so happy to find rhubarb! Most people mix rhubarb with strawberry, but I like to let the rhubarb flavor shine on its own. I updated my old recipe and perfected a new and improved vegan basil rhubarb crisp.

The basil adds a savory twist which helps tone down the natural acidity from the rhubarb. The result is a sugary, but not too sweet, dessert that pairs perfectly with vegan whipped cream or ice cream. This crisp is sure to please everyone at your next summer potluck, plus it’s so easy to make! It requires only eight ingredients and takes under an hour to complete. Head to your local farmers market and pick up some beautiful red-green stalks today!

Cheers!

Jocelyn
