Catie, my long time shooting partner for LTK episodes and very excellent friend, is a vegetarian. Which means she doesn’t eat marshmallows because they are made with gelatin, which comes from animals. I make a point to buy the most responsible and sustainable gelatin that I can find, which she appreciates. But she still won’t eat it. Because even though my gelatin comes from grass-fed cows, it still comes from cows.

I recently made marshmallows that I could eat and they were DELICIOUS. I even took them to the streets, gave them to strangers and gave some kids their first ever marshmallow, and that was was incredible. So, I really wanted to make a marshmallow that she could eat. I wanted her to feel and be included in our general awesome marshmallow experience.

But alas, I failed.

Want to learn from my mistakes? (Of course you do) Watch the video! And if you like it, please share the wisdom of how not to make vegan marshmallows.

About the Author ()

Lillian's Test Kitchen is an online cooking web series. The recipes in this series are always grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are also all (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford). But Lillian's Test Kitchen is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions. My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.
