Meatless Monday Recipe Round-Up - 9/19
* Vanilla Coconut Cream Latte
I was in heaven when I realized that vegan coconut whipped "cream" is really possible. And this coconut vanilla "spooky" ghost latte is perfect for it. Rich espresso, vanilla specks and coconut milk - yum!
* Sumac Citrus Avocado Tomato Salad
This lovely raw platter salad is the perfect recipe to taste-test sumac. Last week I used sumac in my ginger-sumac tofu, and this time you can taste it raw - zesty and vibrant!
* Easy Maple-Tamari Seared Tofu
This is my go-to recipe for easy seared tofu. Savory-sweet flavors of maple and tamari. Perfect for use in my Chipotle Tofu Sandwich with secret sauce.
--> Dinner Inspiration! Add this seared tofu to a hearty Fully Loaded Kale Salad, a small cozy soup on the side and maybe some crusty bread. Or perhaps some hemp garlicky mashed potatoes? Dinner is served.
* Grasshopper Fluff Parfait Dessert
A spin on my Minty Grasshopper Pie - make it a fluffy pudding parfait!
* Grumpy Gator Green Smoothie
This tropical-flavored green smoothie will turn your from a grumpy gator into a gleeful green smoothie guzzler!
* Apple Jack Flapjacks
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes inspired by that classic kids cereal - only these flapjacks are vegan and filled with healthy ingredients - even little bits of spinach!
* Football Season Snacks Gone Vegan
I'm not much of a football watcher myself. But I know many of you have men (and women) in your lives that get simply giddy over football season. And all the football snacking that goes with it. Well give them some totally football-approved snacks that are happily, healthfully vegan. Jalapeno poppers and cheezy nachos anyone?
* Apple Juice and Arsenic? Discuss!
DrOz certainly knows how to make headlines. Now it's your turn to weigh in on the "apple juice" controversy. What do you think? Or is it simply better to serve your kids whole apples anyways?? I think you know how I'd answer that.
