A rich vegetarian side dish of garlicky baked ricotta and broccoli drizzled with a warm red pepper sauce. With a loaf of crusty bread nearby, it's a perfect meal on it's own! Make the sauce ahead of time and warm it just before serving to save time.
Sunny yellow (if you use the colouring) and full of lemon and orange flavour! It's a nice change from your usual Easter Peeps. Original recipe from http://www.frillsinthehills.com/2009/08/make-your-own-eggless-marshmallows.html, modified slightly by me
Filled with more stuff than a thrift store, this dense, slightly sweet whole-grain quickbread is low in added fat and incorporates the goodness of chia, tofu, flax, fruit, veggies and good ol' Californian walnuts!
Adapted from Leena Eats (http://www.leenaeats.com/blog/recipes/leena-cooks/leena-cooks-n-cans-blood-orange-port-mar/) who adapted it from p. 78 Complete Book of Small-Bath Preserving by Topp & Howard, this combines 5 different varieties of citrus with ginger and sweetened red wine to make a tangy and exotic spread for your morning toast!
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Nutty, buttery chickpeas, sweet bananas, crunchy bitter cacao nibs and a touch of sugar add up to gluten free blondie-like bars. They're a treat you can have anytime! If you have no nut concerns feel free to use almond or peanut butter for the SunButter.
The only fat in this vegan recipe is whats naturally present in the spelt, and they're full of nutritious fresh ginger and molasses too. A dash of caramel-flavoured stevia really amps up the flavour.These are best eaten within a few days, though - the lack of oil dries them up quickly.
Adapted from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, these are like dense, chewy bites of all the best bits of carrot cake! The nuts are optional - I often leave them out (or add toasted sunflower seeds instead!).
I made my mom's tried and true banana bread for my RMT with one slight adjustment - one more banana, one less egg! I added her (generous!) amounts of walnuts and chocolate chips too. I'm attributing the incredibly moist (without being "wet") texture to her mixture of melted butter, oil, and yogurt along with the addition of 4 (or in my case, 5) big bananas!
