Caramelized apple scones

Caramelized apple scones for tea time 🙂 🍏 🫖

My sister is a master at creating these, it really is her recipe. 👩‍🍳

The process is so gratifying…check out the video below of cooking the apples and spices. The glorious smell fills up the whole house!

Also, scroll down for recipe. My sister cleverly followed an old family non-vegan instructional and veganized it, or as she says “translated” to a language we can understand ; cruelty-free. 🐄
Sub dairy ingredients for plant-based.

Topped it with a dollop of coconut cream. Many people don’t know about this – I certainly didn’t until way too late in life. 😤 Open a tin of coconut milk and leave it in the fridge with its lid cracked open either over night or at least for a couple of hours. ⏰ It solidifies and can be used as-is or whipped up into delicious and refreshing whipped cream! 👅

Not as sweet as you may be used to, comparing it to the whipped cream that comes from an aerosol can, but so good and nowhere near as bad for you (i.e. 30 cals and 4 g of healthy fats in each tablespoon)😌. It’s so good for you, you can even put it on granola/muesli cereals for breakfast!

❗️VEGAN FACT #52❗️: We never started drinking another animal’s breast milk until the world wars. Farmers were asked by the government to cheaply and immorally produce huge quantities of it. When the wars ended, there were so many more cows that had been forcibly produced by farmers to feed and house, the farmers were losing money. The government helped the businesses to survive and flourish by enabling them with marketing collateral that spread lies like ‘this different animal’s breast milk is healthy for us humans to drink’. And so, milk became a staple in our everyday shop and humans have never suffered from more diseases cause by dairy in human history.

Scrambled Tofu

Scrambled tofu, an incredible staple meal.🍳 🙌

Packed with protein and iron, you really can’t go wrong with it. 💪

Warm up a pan of olive oil on medium – high heat and then stick half a block of tofu on it.
Use a potato masher to break up the tofu and let cook for 4-5 minutes, until all the moisture from it cooks out.

Add in seasoning:
2 tbsp per block of tofu of nutritional yeast, pinch of salt and pepper, tsp of garlic powder, pinch of turmeric powder (for colour).

Mix and let cook for another minute. Stir in 1 tbsp of plant-based milk and then serve immediately. I like topping it with avocado when I have it and a bit of hot sauce. 🔥

I was a big fried egg lover back in my non-vegan days. 🤷‍♀️ Although, I knew to only have 1 a week because they’re packed with cholesterol and increase one’s risk of disease. Really though, I don’t want any added risk of hardship / disease, so if eliminating eggs can be made easy with amazing substitutes, it became a no-brainer to me. 💃

❗️VEGAN FACTS #53❗️: It’s comical checking out so many health news sites talking about how healthy eggs can be and then immediately contradict themselves by warning that you should have very few of them on a regular basis. Be wary about where you get your information around food – it’s a highly corrupt industry.

Garlic Oyster Pasta

After having oyster mushrooms on some delicious pizza from @pizzeria.du , I was inspired to purchase a pack of oyster mushrooms and see what I could do with them ✨

In the end I didn’t end up doing anything really interesting with them other than making this creamy, garlicky mushroom pasta sauce🤷‍♀️…turned out to be something really easy and tasty to make. 👅

I sautéed some diced vegan chicken strips from @gardein (adds extra protein and iron 💪❤️), oyster mushrooms, as well as a couple cloves of garlic in a bit of vegan @becelca 🧈. Added salt 🧂 , pepper, parsley flakes, and thyme. Once golden brown, I poured in a bit of almond milk and more butter (whichever plant based milk works, I just like almond for cooking because it’s low calorie) and let simmer for five minutes. ⏱

Mix in your favourite cooked pasta and you have a super satisfying, gorgeous smelling and tasting meal. ✔️

While I got to say that this is definitely not an advanced dish, just getting in the habit of making your own sauces and spice mixes with basic dishes can improve your knowledge around flavour and food preparation 📝 . Meals like this can also just be staples for yourself when you’re down on time or need to cook for a bigger group. 🤗

❗️VEGAN FACT #47❗️: The average vegan has a cholesterol level of 133, 77 points lower than the average meat eater’s. A landmark study found no heart attacks in people with cholesterol levels below 150. – @peta


Peppermint Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate + Peppermint crinkle cookies for the cold first day of January winter air

The way these bake in with crushed candy canes is so cool and the texture is just incredible. ❄️

Start your year off right with some guilt-free comfort food

Happy New Year everyone!! ♥️

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup vegan milk (Oat, Soy, Almond, Cashew)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, for rolling
  1. In a large bowl, stir in sugar and coconut oil until well combined and smooth.
  2. Add the ground flax seeds, milk and vanilla. Mix well to combine.
  3. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt using either a sifter or fine mesh strainer. 
  4. Stir until combined with the wet ingredients and a soft dough is formed. 
  5. Place the powdered sugar in a small mixing bowl.
  6. Scoop out a heaping tbsp of dough at a time, and shape into a ball.
  7. Roll the ball in the powdered sugar very generously, covering all sides. The more powdered sugar, the prettier the cookies will be.
  8. Place the balls onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart so they have room to spread.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 F until set. They will appear slightly undercooked and soft, but will firm up as they cool.
  10. Store any extra cookies in an airtight container for 4-5 days. Enjoy!

❗️VEGAN FACT #61❗️: On average, vegans save 1,100 gallons of water per day.


Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes with coffee frosting ☕️ 🍫

Bit of fanatic about the coffee flavour so pairing the frosted cupcake with a latte was super satisfying. 🥰

I’ve actually gone off caffeinated coffee and hardly ever drink it anymore. I was waking up feeling like I really needed it to get through me the day. So, I dropped it and man were the first few days rough. 🥵 But, now I’ll drink decaf coffee like I did with this treat and caffeinated coffee whenever I go to a coffee shop (which is very infrequently nowadays due to the pandemic). I also love the decaf coffee brand I use and have a little scented candle that smells like coffee that I’ll light as well (swipe for both)☺️

I would’ve never gone off caffeinated coffee until I realized so many things around how it was affecting me. 🤔This experience translates well for so many people that have never known life without meat eating and not believing that they could possibly thrive from making a change. 🥸 Buuuuut, where the experiences are different is I won’t tell you to switch to decaf coffee as the affects it has on your body are inconsequential to that of meat eating on your body and the rest of the world.

❗️VEGAN FACT #50❗️: Until recently, only the wealthiest people could afford to feed, raise, and slaughter animals for meat, while everyone else ate mostly plant foods. Consequently, prior to the 20th century, only the rich were plagued routinely with diseases such as heart disease and obesity. Now that animal flesh has become relatively cheap and is easily available (thanks to the cruel, cost-cutting practices of farming), deadly ailments such as heart disease, strokes, cancer, diabetes, and obesity have spread to people across the socio-economic spectrum – @Peta


ReFresh Chickpea Wrap

I’ve become a bit obsessed with my own chickpea mash wrap 🖤

I was on my way to mix up some more vegan tuna and then just skipped the seaweed and other filling and loved this. It’s so refreshing and really filling.

1. Mash up 1/3 can of chickpeas
2. Pop in a tsp of Dijon mustard, tsp of mayo, and tsp of lemon juice
3. Dash of salt & pepper
4. Dash of white vinegar
5. 1/2 tsp capers (not essential but I like it)
6. Mix
7. Wrap with some greens and any vegan cold meat if you fancy (I LOVE me some @yvesveggiecuisine sandwich meats 👏)

I’ve never tried this wrap on any one, so if you try it out, please let me know if it’s good or just me 😂❤️

❗️VEGAN FACT#55❗️: The meat & dairy industry is extremely racist. “Disproportionately, Black, brown, and Indigenous people in North Carolina have long suffered as a result of the enormous quantities of animal waste and its stench in their communities [from the largest factory farms specifically placed in these areas]. The overwhelming amount of feces and liquid waste threatens their water and affects their health.” – @peta

Vegan Jamaican Brown Stew

Blasting the tunes and making a big meal with the earth’s ingredients for the people that I care about has always been a ritual. 🌎🌿

I quickly realized that the best way to get someone to understand how delicious and varied plant-based meals can be is to SHOW them.😏

Making food that’s familiar to someone and proving that it costs less, is more environmentally efficient to make/buy than their meat version, it’s cruelty free, and packed with only good nutrients gets the gears turning. ⚙️🧠💡

This recipe was inspired by @eat_plantbased_ – check her out for some more beautiful vegan Jamaican eats 🇯🇲😋

Brown stew is a meal staple in so many households, usually featuring marinated and cooked chicken or cow.🐔 🐮 The same can be done with tofu and anyone that tells you that they don’t like the taste of tofu has probably just been eating it straight out of the container that it comes in😂

You NEED to spice it, just like chicken flesh, you must let it marinate. Any time you prepare it, poke the tofu chunk right the way through with a small fork, so the flavours can soak all the way in.🍴

Although the recipe calls for a scotch bonnet, I found that it was already hot enough for my taste🌶🥵 The beautiful thing about this meal is that a little goes a long way, so when dishing it out, pack on the rice / chickpeas / or whatever side you’re using because you will want leftovers🥳

  • 1 pack extra firm organic tofu (use more if you want)
  • 2 1/2 tsp browning 1/2 onion
  • 2 “fat”garlic 2 stalk scallion
  • Few sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 scotch bonnet
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 small tomato
  • Sazon all purpose seasoning
  • Island spice
  • all purpose seasoning
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • Black pepper
  • Ketchup mixture: 1 1/2 tbsp ketchup, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1 tsp water(You can use ketchup as is)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup grape seed oil( use enough to fry tofu)

❗️VEGAN FACT #5❗️: Protein comes from plants…it comes from the ground! 🌱 You find protein in vegetables, grains, and even fruit 🍌 You can find protein in animal bodies because they, like us, eat plants!!🤯 So by eating animals or their eggs/milk/fat you are actually eating their recycled protein♻️ Point is, if you eat your recommended daily calorie intake plant-based, you will automatically get enough protein.💪


Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Ahhhh the breakfast burrito. A bit elusive in my household – I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on these babies and they’re incredibly easy to make!

1. Bake hash browns…we love @cavendish.farms (use 2 per wrap)
2. Fry vegan breakfast sausage links from @yvesveggiecuisine (these are brilliant) and then slice into chunks 🔪
3. Place a tsp of vegan shredded cheddar cheese and a tsp of vegan shredded mozzarella cheese onto the middle of a wrap @followyourheart @daiyafoods 🫓
4. Place 2 baked hash browns on top of the vegan cheese
5. Top with sausage pieces
6. Wrap – see video 🎥
7. Place on frying pan (no oil) on medium-high heat for 2 minutes and then turn over to cook the other side until golden brown ♨️
8. Cut in half and enjoy! 👅🍴

❗️VEGAN FACT #26❗️: Buttermilk is commonly used to make pancakes, breads, and other baked goods. It’s also a type of fermented milk, so the potential long-term side effects of it are; weight gain, increased blood pressure & cholesterol, etc. Meanwhile, you can make a vegan version using one cup of non dairy milk and one tbsp of apple cider vinegar (for one serving). Done. No health risks involved.

Georgia’s Vegan Remedy


Welcome to my Remedy

Hi everyone! Welcome to my very first website.

When I started Georgia’s Vegan Remedy on Instagram, I was on the mission to provide a kind of ‘resource centre’ for my friends and family where they may explore recipes, informational pieces, and ideologies geared towards veganism.

My passion for this brand has grown along with my network and so here am, starting another phase of GVR.

I post my absolute favourite vegan meals of all-time that I would highly recommend you giving a go. I also always work to provide as much value as I can with every post; From the meals that I create and photograph, to the captions that I write, I aim to provide incentive for every reader to get excited about trying a purely plant-based meal today or tomorrow.

I am excited to start this journey with you all.
