What’s more American than some good old fashioned cole slaw? Well…maybe apple pie, but I’d say this traditional side dish makes the top ten list. Being vegan, cole slaw is something I don’t eat very often. However, it’s a side dish that I used to love as a kid. Since Hampton Creek has such an amazing line of faux mayos, I decided to give this old fashioned dish a vegan spin.
The recipe is simple, using just seven main ingredients and taking about 10 minutes of prep time. Why not give this a try? It’s sure to satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike!
This weekend I did a little spring cleaning in my kitchen. I found a rather large jar of sun dried tomatoes, and I knew I had to use them soon. What could I do? Obviously, I could make penne pasta with sun dried tomatoes and olive oil, or I could toss them in a salad, on a sandwich, etc. I decided I wanted to make something a little more original.
My AeroGarden has been going gangbusters lately. I have so much basil, parsley, mint, cilantro, and dill, I just don’t know what to do with it. A light bulb went off, and I decided that I would make a sun dried tomato pesto. That would use the sun dried tomatoes, basil, and parsley. Perfect!
A few weeks ago my Facebook feed became flooded with links to a Nerdist article about Settlers of Catan Nachos. Two of my favorite things in one! Can I get the longest road of Settlers nachos? I’m not sure how that would work, but I’ll try! I’m determined!
Obviously, as soon as I saw the article, I knew I had to have a game night and make these nachos. It was a no brainer. And really, who doesn’t love a good nacho bar? It’s cheap, it’s relatively easy, and your guests can customize their plate to their own liking.
How’d you spend your weekend? Eating junk food, watching the game, or at least, watching Lady Gaga and Beyonce? I actually love football, but I wasn’t terribly invested in either team. I’m a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. That said, I love any excuse to yell at the TV and eat some tasty vegan comfort food.
