These Asian-style street sandwiches can easily be adapted for vegans, making them a versatile twist on a traiditonal Asian favorite.
Let's face it: to your average holiday reveler, the phrase "vegan dessert" has about as much appeal as, say, "asparagus milkshake." While being a vegan no longer seems to invite the kind of puzzlement and even outright hostility that it once did (like announcing you were a Communist), instead you can often expect a sort of pity, especially around the holidays. After all, the classic holiday treats are, at their essence, all about two fundamental ingredients that even the vegan's fellow traveler -- the vegetarian -- can enjoy without compromise: eggs and butter.
This colorful side dish features corn, black-eyed peas, green peppers and red onions, simply dressed with Pace® Chunky Salad.
You can jazz up this basic recipe by adding Rosemary-Lemon Thyme Oil or Moroccan Spice Rub when you toss the rutabaga with olive oil and salt and pepper before roasting. Or toss the rutabaga with Sesame Sea Salt, Caramelized Shallot Butter, Ginger-Lemon Soy Splash, or Toasted Coriander & Garlic Oil after it comes out of the oven.
Basil lends a subtle herbal note to this citrus-berry cocktail.
This dipping sauce is perfect to accompany dumplings, grilled shrimp or chicken kebabs. Either pour the sauce into a bowl and set it on a tray accompanying them, or divide the sauce among 2 to 4 small bowls to set at each place.
This bracing Swedish punch gets its kick from aquavit, a potent, potato-based liquor. The wine must steep with the spices for at least 12 hours before drinking, so begin your glogg a day ahead.
Rather than letting an opened jar of curry paste languish in the fridge, try this unconventional approach of using the paste like a condiment for pan-steamed snap peas. The peas have a mild, slow-burning heat, but if you like things hotter, try doubling the curry paste. This treatment is also good with green beans or broccoli, though you may want to leave out the mint.
Chopped hazelnuts are a fine flavor match for green beans--and a refreshing departure from the more expected almonds.
Jason Travi recommends using a peppery olive oil to saute the blanched Broccolini with the garlic and crushed red pepper. The recipe is delicious with a variety of other vegetables as well, such as cauliflower, snap peas, or green beans.
Go vegetarian with a perky noodle salad that's ready in less than 30 minutes.
This scrumptious bean salad combines kidney beans, pinto beans, sliced red onion and diced green pepper dressed with a flavorful combination of Pace® Picante Sauce, cilantro, oil and vinegar.
"Most people prefer margaritas either frozen or on the rocks. In Texas, it's the same with refried beans versus charro," says Tim Love. Refried beans are made with mashed pintos; for charro -- a Tex-Mex take on pork and beans -- the beans are served whole in a spicy broth.
This lush, stewlike dish is typically made with zolfini beans, a pale yellow Tuscan legume that can be challenging to find in the U.S.; firm, creamy cannellini beans are an excellent substitute.
Starting with dried chickpeas instead of canned ones makes all the difference in this citrusy side dish. Although soaking and cooking the chickpeas takes a bit more time, the effort is minimal.
