Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

This All American holiday calls for some All American Dessert, Vegan Style. It has been quite some time since I have had Strawberry Shortcake, so I was looking forward to making this dessert that I absolutely loved as a child.

My Vegan version of strawberry shortcake ended up being accidentally Gluten Free too! I tried my hand at some quinoa flour and I was very happy with the results. While baking my buiscuits smelled like cookies, and they even looked like cookies when they came out of the oven, however once I tasted them they were not too sweet, which means they could also be used for a savory dish. Quinoa flour has a unique taste, but in my mind this flour from Bob’s Red Mill can replace baking flour anyday.

I only had strawberries on hand the day I made this dessert, but would have loved to make this a true Red, White and Blue recipe with some blueberries or even raspberries. Happy 4th of July!
