These cashew ricotta toasts are an awesome vegan party snack to add to your repertoire. Try them as a Thanksgiving appetizer!One of my favorite parts of writing Friendsgiving was developing and photographing the "Pre-Game" chapter. This section of the book is dedicated to that first hour of a party when your friends arrive - hungry, thirsty, and seemingly eager to help you finish up in the kitchen. As much as I love sharing food with friends, I don't always enjoy people helping me in the kitchen (it throws me off my game and prolongs the whole process, . . .
Crisp fall mornings, leaves turning colors, the sweet scent of PSL’s in the air… it all makes me want to do one thing: turn on the oven. Every October, as the quiet and stillness of fall settle in, I realize how much I've missed baking and roasting since spring (because using the oven in August is just silly, except for this eggplant recipe).With just a handful of ingredients and zero fussy techniques, these vegan carrot pumpkin muffins are the perfect welcome-to-fall, get-reacquainted-with-your-oven recipe. They have a crunchy top - thanks to an extra . . .
The two inherently great things about pasta are that anyone can cook it and everyone loves eating it. Whether swirled with red sauce or dressed up in garlic, red pepper flakes, and broccoli rabe (my favorite), there’s really no wrong way to do pasta. The only downside is that it’s traditionally confined to table-chair-and-fork situations. Until now, that is: enter the spaghetti pancake.This crispy spaghetti pancake recipe liberates pasta from the context of seated dining and turns it into a fun finger food for cocktail parties, picnics, or even an after school . . .
These chickpea chocolate chip cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had. I know, I know, that's a pretty strong statement – especially considering they're vegan and gluten-free and not Alison Roman's internet-breaking recipe – but please try to reserve your rebuttals until after you've tasted them yourself.I've made upwards of 10 batches already, each time half-anticipating that, okay, maybe they're not as insanely good as I remember. And yet, each batch continues to reinforce my original belief. Plus, the sole fact that I've made them this many . . .
This addictively delicious chocolate hazelnut spread (DIY Nutella) from Clotilde Dusoulier's Tasting Paris consists of 4 simple ingredients: hazelnuts, dates, cocoa powder, and salt.There is a handful of foods that it's a crime not to taste when visiting Paris. These include but are not limited to: croissants, baguettes, macarons, as many types of cheese as you can get your hands on, croque monsieur (the crunchy broiled sandwich made with ham, cheese, and béchamel), steak-frites, and of course, the street crêpe. In Paris, you're never too far from a crêpe stand and . . .
These healthy homemade crackers are made with whole grains, pumpkin seeds, and olive oil. They get their "cheesy" flavor from nutritional yeast and yellow hue from turmeric.If you had told me a few years ago that I'd become the type of person who makes her own crackers, I probably would've had a good laugh. I mean, it seems a little high-maintenance, indulgent even. Especially when there are so many great options made from real, whole foods ingredients readily available in stores today – like Doctor Kracker, Wasa, and my favorite, Mary's Gone . . .
