Snacks

Small bites for between meals when you’re avoiding bagged fried chips or sugar-laden processed products!

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Muffins

We’ve been making homemade nut milks, both almond and cashews. It’s a lot easier than we thought, as most of the time is passive while you wait for the nuts to soak in water. The one element we dislike in the process, is after blending the soaked nuts in fresh […]

 

Spicy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

This is smoky and tangy salsa originally from “Tacolicious” combines roasted and fresh tomatillos with avocado and fresh jalapeno. You can dial the spice up or down based on the amount of jalapeno you include.  

 

Spicy Mango Salsa

This one is so easy – chop and combine 2 mangoes, 3-4 green onions, 1 jalapeno pepper, tablespoon of freshly squeezed lime juice, Kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Simple, sweet, spicy, and delicious. I baked a batch of homemade corn tortilla chips for dipping. This recipe […]

 

Tomatillo Guacamole

Our boys love guacamole salsa, so when we landed a handful of fresh tomatillos in our farm basket, we knew exactly how to use them. In this recipe originally from Martha Rose Shulman of The New York Times, roasted tomatillos add tartness to creamy guacamole; minced jalapeno adds a bit […]

 

Vegan Summer Spring Rolls

We adapted this recipe from Alice Hart’s Vegetarian cookbook; she included it in her book with permission of Stephane Reynaud, who is chef-proprietor of a restaurant near Paris, France. This is apparently a well-traveled and well-loved recipe, and we can taste why! Our version pairs creamy vegan feta seasoned with […]

 

Coconut Banana Breakfast Cookies

I was inspired to make these wheat-/gluten-free cookies from the same cookbook I’ve referenced a lot lately – “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” That version uses eggs and honey; mine are dairy and sugar free, made with unsweetened applesauce. My husband and I enjoyed them fresh from the oven, […]

 

Yin and Yang Sesame Almond Crackers

Between Passover and the Whole Life Challenge, we’ve been struggling with finding satisfying crunchy, savory snacks to fulfill our mid-afternoon cravings. These Yin and Yang Sesame Almond Crackers helped. They pair really well with Baba Ghanoush, or smeared with some soft vegan cheese (like our favorites from Miyoko’s).  

 

Stuffed Potato Skins with Guacamole

Dinner or snack? Snack or dinner? It’s hard to categorize these crispy, salty finger-foods as one or other other. On their own, perhaps they’re best as an hors d’oeuvre or afternoon snack. Pair them with steamed asparagus or a side salad, and they earn a righteous place on the dinner […]
