Hello my lovelies!
Life has taken precedence over writing over the past few months and though I haven't been posting lately, I certainly have many recipes and stories to share with you in the New Year!
ATM and I took a trip to Europe this Fall and I have lots of vegan tips for Vegan Euro Travelers! We have also been renovating our house (meaning a brand-spankin' new kitchen to create more V.V. love!) and it is being completed just in time for my lovely Dad and StepMama's Christmas visit! I have been living off of my coconut curry noodle soup recipe, cooked in a tiny pot on a two-burner hot-plate and while I am excited over the notion of a fully functional kitchen, I will most likely keep chowing down on the same noodle soup!
Over the holiday's, many herbivores can feel left out of the feasting, but this is so NOT necessary!!! Here are some of my fave V.V. recipes that are perfect for this indulgent season:
Some lovely appies for your next holiday cocktail party might include Phylo Wrapped Asparagus with a creamy Lemon Aioli or French Lentil Pate. For New Year's Eve this year, ATM and I are throwing a big party and yours truly will be serving up vegan tapas to our guests!
For an elegant, meat-less entree, try my Homemade Tofurkey with Wild Mushroom Sage Stuffing and Vegan Gravy, a delish and hearty Vegan Coq au Vin, Sunflower Crusted Seitan au Jus with Garlic Smashed Potatoes, or for something a little different, Cauliflower Steaks with a creamy Cauliflower Puree
I've never been much for sweets but for me the Holiday's seem incomplete without Vegan Irish Cream Liquor, in abundance!!!
I wish you and your loved ones all the best this season and look forward to sharing more vegan recipes and compassion with you in 2013!
