Here we share plant-based recipes requiring 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare. All eaters are welcome.
Whether you’re new to Minimalist Baker or have been around for a while, we’re so glad you’re here.
Dana is the recipe developer, content creator, and food photographer behind Minimalist Baker. She has been blogging in some form since 2010 and developed a deep love for recipe experimentation and food photography in the process. She is the author of Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking, 31 Meals Cookbook, and co-creator of Food Photography School, Food Video School, and the Essentials of Building a Great Food Blog Course. She’s also a proud plant mom, green smoothie addict, and aspiring yogi. Her go-to morning drink is a creamy matcha latte. Mmm. Follow her on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram for Minimalist Baker updates, and on Instagram @danainreallife for personal updates.
Our recipes are plant-based and mostly gluten-free, and they fall into at least one of these three simple categories:
- 30 minutes or less
- 1 bowl
- 10 ingredients or less*
*We don’t count water or “optional” ingredients toward the 10 ingredient count.
Baker? Does that mean you only make dessert?
While there’s always been a love for sweet things, Minimalist Baker is about much more. We love our hearty entrées as much as we love our decadent desserts.
Whether you have dietary restrictions or not, we hope you’ll find something you love here. Find all of our recipes here.

No Sponsored Content
We feel that it’s important to mention we don’t accept free products or do sponsored content on Minimalist Baker. This is because we value our readers’ trust above all and aim to keep our content pure and honest.
While we have worked with brands we love in the past, it’s something we’ve chosen not to practice moving forward. We want our audience to know we aren’t being paid to say or promote anything – period. Every new post is original, valuable, and unsponsored.
While Dana (@danainreallife) leads recipe development and John (@jshltz) manages all things technical, we are now a small team of people working to make Minimalist Baker a destination for plant-based recipes.
