How Does a Vegan Survive the Holidays? Deliciously.

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.

Slightly Spicy Sugar Snap Peas with Mint & Lime

Fine Cooking Magazine

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.
