So like almost everyone, I have a soft spot for fried food. I know it's bad, but sometimes it is so, so good! And often- and can I get a HELL YEAH on this one- finding guaranteed gluten-free fried food at restaurants is DAMN NEAR impossible. So here's to saving money and eating as many portions as you want without being judged- our Crispy Chickpea Onion rings recipe. This is a favorite at our place when we need some junk food because they're gluten-free, have plenty of batter (there's nothing I hate more than a barely coated onion ring!), and are deeeeelicious. The batter is slightly sweet and nutty with a hint of smoky flavor, which tastes great with a little sriracha mayo or even old school catsup, and even better with a beer. They're a great app for sharing at parties and Sunday sports games, but equally great all by yourself with a chick flick. No judgement here! I think you're gonna love 'em, so let's eat. MORE...
Easter is just days away and happens to coincide with another of my favorite, uhm, holidays. Either way, treats were on the menu for snacking and these Reese's egg knockoffs seemed like the perfect way to celebrate. Creamy, sweet peanut butter filling coated with crunchy dark chocolate- yes, please!
Alex and I (okay, mostly Alex) finished the entire initial batch in just three days and barely shared. Whoops! They were too good. I had forgotten just how much I miss treats like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups sometimes. I mean, the originals are filled with awful amounts of conspicuous sounding sugars and animal additives, but even so, THEY WERE SO DAMN GOOD. Re-creating childhood favorites with vegan & gluten-free ingredients is my favorite, and I'm happy to share these with you guys. I hope they make your Easter, or whenever the heck you eat and/or make them for, DELICIOUS. MORE...
Okay, we're doing it again. Getting a little splurgy, right? Well, when you want to be the vegan hostess with the mostest, somtimes you've gotta pull out all the stops! This is a 'WOW' appetizer. I mean it! Your friends will be impressed. It takes a little prep time, but takes a classically bad-for-you appetizer and makes it better for you, vegan, and full of gooey, melty cheese. YUM. They're perfect for Sunday sports games, upcoming Cinco de Mayo, and finger food for dinner parties.
I was inspired by a hormonal craving for spicy, fried food (surprise, surprise), and was so incredibly pleased with the results. We used a similar flax wash/ breading recipe as we did in our Crispy Cauliflower Nuggets, and kept it gluten-free with GF breadcrumbs...but you can use whatever you want/ have on hand. I'm betting using panko here would be pretty delicious, too. MORE...
