Vegan and Gluten-Free Hummus and Roasted Veggie Pizza

Literally, the only thing I care about in the food that I eat (besides it being vegan and gluten-free) is whether or not it tastes good. Thanks to my parents, who raised me to have a wide appreciation for food and an appreciate palette for unique and interesting flavours, I have no problem trying new things on my own, especially when I’m cooking at home.

So imagine my delight when, just the other day, I really wanted pizza and had everything I’d need except for tomato sauce. But then I thought, no, wait, here’ s a chance to be creative. What I did have was hummus so, of course, I was like, “Well, this is happening.” And so it did.

This Vegan and Gluten-Free Hummus and Roasted Veggie Pizza is not only the most flavourful pizza I’ve had in a very long time, but it’s also so incredibly simple to prepare and, if you’re quick with chopping, shouldn’t take longer than 35 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. - 1 gluten-free + vegan pizza crust of your choice
  2. - 1/2 cup hummus
  3. - 1/3 medium red onion
  4. - 1/3 medium yellow onion
  5. - 1 carrot
  6. - 1/2 large sweet potato
  7. - 1/3-1/2 cup vegan shredded cheese
  8. - Handful of chopped spinach or kale
  9. - Balsamic vinegar
  10. - Vegetable or olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400'F
  2. Heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat and sautee the onions until translucent. Remove and add the carrots and sweet potatoes (both sliced into small, thin discs). Cook until soft and browning.
  3. Place the crust on a baking sheet or pizza pan and spread the hummus. Add the prepared vegetables. Sprinkle on chopped spinach or kale. Add vegan cheese.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp vegetable or olive oil. Using a spoon, drizzle over the pizza.
  5. Bake in the oven for approx. 10 minutes or until crust begins to golden and cheese is melted.
  6. Optional: I like to sprinkle on a bit more vegan cheese when the pizza first comes out of the oven.
Notes
  1. You can easily substitute any of the veggies I mentioned here for ones you prefer, including zucchini, sweet peppers, hot peppers, etc.

The best gluten-free and vegan chocolate chip cookies

There isn’t really much to say before I share this amazing recipe with you. But I think that’s okay, right? When the cookie looks this good (and tastes even better), no one really gives a hoot what sort of anecdote I share, and I am totally fine with that.

Gluten-free banana bread with coconut and chocolate chips
Some of the best memories I have from my childhood are those Saturday mornings when my mom would bake. She always took on the kitchen with the speed of a cheetah and the grace of a swan because no matter what she was making, she was done in no less than 30 minutes (and that included clean up). Despite my best efforts – giving it the ol’ college try – I’ve never quite mastered her particular set of skills for time and efficiency.
