No-Bake Vegan Carrot Cake by Trinity (Gluten-Free Too!)

Raw carrot cake slice by Trinity Bourne

It seems like an eternity since I made my first raw carrot cake, some 15 years ago.

Baked Tofu and Artichoke Mushroom Cashew Griller

Today is an extra special Monday because you get two recipes in one. I was inspired by a friend of mine to make cashew artichoke dip.

This recipe is awesome as a straight up dip (think…
