Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had fun celebrating the evening with those special people in your lives. 2014 brought a ton of changes for me and I’m looking forward to a new year full of possibilities and new adventures. I thought I’d take a moment to look back at the last year and share some of my very favorite recipes with you all. Here’s to wishing you all a happy, healthy and festive new year!
Crunchy cabbage salad with spicy peanut dressing
This was by far the most popular recipe on the blog this year. Full of lots of fresh chopped veggies and topped with a spicy peanut dressing it’s so delicious no one will notice that it’s Vegan as well!
Super Vegan bowl with parsley cashew pesto
This is absolute comfort in a bowl. I could eat this everyday and never get tired of it. The parsley cashew pesto is amazing on just about anything, tossed into pasta, mixed into your favorite scrambled eggs or as a spread on a sandwich.
Potatoes in garlicky chard broth
Simply prepared potatoes are simmered in a broth full of garlic and finely chopped chard. Full of flavor but lighter than most traditional recipes they make a great side dish or are wonderful as a light lunch all on their own!
Shredded rainbow salad with Greek yogurt Caesar dressing
Eat your veggies! This salad is as beautiful to look at as it is to eat. Kale, carrots, beets and cabbage are topped off with a tangy Greek yogurt based dressing.
Pistachio yogurt pops
Making your own popsicles are so easy and you can really go crazy with the flavor combinations. These yogurt based popsicles are flavored with pistachios and a little honey. The perfect midnight snack!
I love to eat my greens! Shaved asparagus is so under utilized and it makes a great base for this Asian inspired salad.
White chocolate faux cheesecake
Finding a delicious vegan dessert can be a challenge and most raw cheesecakes need to be frozen in order to keep their shape. This recipe uses white chocolate to help thicken the base and adds a lovely flavor to the cashew based filling. It’s a dessert that I’d be proud to serve to anyone!
This is a super easy vegan pasta sauce that can be made anytime of the year but super sweet summer corn takes this dish over the top!
summer fruit and Halloumi salad
Super satisfying and easy to put together this salad is loaded with fresh seasonal fruit and topped with pan-fried Halloumi cheese. If you’ve never tried Halloumi you don’t know what you’re missing!
Butternut squash and broccolini pizza
This is one of my very favorite pizza recipes ever. Rich and savory butternut squash puree replaces traditional tomato sauce and roasted broccolini, hazelnuts and just a touch of cheese make for such a delicious pizza, you’ll never miss the meat!
I can’t wait to make them ALL! Thanks so much for posting and happy new year!
I hope you enjoy the recipes if you try them!
