This is not a recipe. It is a directive: Every now and then you should have cheese and crackers for dinner. I don’t mean cheese and crackers literally. I mean it to be symbolic of your most uncommon indulgence around food. Vegan | Carnivore | Gluten Free
These Spicy Chickpea Cakes have the texture and appearance of a an egg and flour battered and deep-fried fritter but they are vegan and gluten free. Crunchy on the outside and creamy like a good potato croquette on the inside, they’re infused with red Thai chilis, ginger, and mint.
This egg-free Carrot Cake is nice and moist, aided by the addition of both pureed peaches and pineapple. A blood orange reduction replaces the traditional butter in the cream cheese icing. This results in more of a honey-ed orange flavour than a strong orange flavour. You could use regular orange juice, or you could use additional peach puree instead. Or, you don’t even need to ice this cake at all. Lots of options!
This zucchini “noodle” dish is a great way to get a whole heap of veggies in. The butter adds a satisfying richness, while the miso provides a lovely nutty saltiness.
