hiya, howdy and hello! it's been a loooong time and so much has happened since october. while we're still busy bees (and i promise update you all next post - which i promise won't be months down the road!), i wanted to take a bit to post about something that i'm really superexcitedfaced about. my good friend allyson kramer, of Manifest Vegan has published her first cookbook! squeeeeeeeeeeeee! Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats is out now and since its arrival dan and i have been cooking up all kinds of gloriously fantastical eats! let me tell you, friends - don't be all, "well, i'm not gluten-free...it's not for me." it IS! it's for everyone! you don't have to be gluten-free to enjoy allyson's super stellar recipes! i promise they're not intimidating either (i know some gluten-free recipes can be), and we've served her dishes to people who aren't gluten-free (many of them were omnivores, too) with tasty success! while my photos might not be doing allyson's eats much justice, you'll be most happyfaced to know that every recipe in her book has a gorgeous photo to accompany it. this way you can totally flip through and make what recipes you drool the most. w00t! oh yeah, and she includes nutritional information for every recipe as well. seriously, guysers - what's not to love?!? oh, and we're giving away 2 copies of Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats - details are at the end of this post, friends. so here are a few Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats we've been enjoying lately, thanks to allyson's amazing cookbook.
we've just got to start off with allyson's butter pecan sticky rolls. look at them!
i'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to spice, so i tossed on some chopped cilantro. the leftovers are great with baked tofu and steamed broccoli if you wanna add something to 'em.
creamy potato salad. not only is this potato salad oh-so creamy, but it's the best damn potato salad i've had. you see, back in my omni days i absolutely adored my mom's potato salad. hers always had this flavor i could never quite replicate and i really missed it. none of the vegan potato salad recipes i'd tried to date were even close to my momma's. i was a bit hesitant to try allyson's because i was afraid i'd be a little disappointed.
boy was i happyfaced to be wrong. allyson's creamy potato salad had the exact flavor (and texture) i had been missing from my mom's potato salad. this potato salad didn't last a day in our house. it was that delicious. :)
lastly we've got my allyson's mediterranean croquettes and her carrot celeriac remoulade atop. my sister and i try to get together about once a week and cook dinner for each other. we trade off who does the cooking and a last time i decided to whip up these lovelies. mmmmmmm!
you can bet your boots we'll be trying more of allyson's recipes in the furture and i urge you all to get your hands on Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats. allyson's recipes are for everyone - gluten-free or not. they really, truly are!
if you'd like to win a copy just leave a comment letting us know why you'd love a copy for yourself we'll randomly draw 2 winners so you can both get cooking and enjoy allyson's recipes yourself! we'll select 2 winners by June 17th - and yes, this is open to everyone all over the world!
we hope you all is awesome with everyone - and we'll be posting more soon, we promise! <3
