Cherry Chocolate Chip Cake
A traditional layered vanilla cake is flavored with maraschino cherry juice (which also gives it a nice pink color!) and accented by semisweet chocolate chips and diced maraschino cherries. A layer of vanilla icing ties the cake together, while a sprinkle of chocolate chips and whole cherries finishes it off. A Midwestern treat that is perfect for a celebration!
Cumin-Spiced Falafel (Dairy Free + Gluten Free)
All the taste and nutrition of your favorite street-cart or restaurant falafel, but at a fraction of the cost AND baked rather than fried! A hit of cumin and cayenne elevate the flavor profile of these falafel patties. Try them on top of a salad, wrapped in a pita, or just by themselves for a quick meal that you can make ahead and reheat in a pinch!
Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Sunflower Butter Curry (Vegan + Gluten Free)
Talk about a powerhouse of nutrients! Sweet potatoes, carrots, and spinach make up the bulk of this curry, which simmers in a sauce made of sunflower seed butter (but you could easily substitute peanut, almond, or whatever you have on hand). Healthy, quick, and perfect for a cold day!
Fudgy Chocolate Truffles (Vegan + Gluten Free)
What would you say if I told you these truffles were made of only TWO ingredients?! (Well, I guess three if you choose to roll them in cocoa powder, but STILL!) Yep, you can get rich vegan chocolate-y deliciousness with no baking and only two ingredients. What are you waiting for?
Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Cocoa Buttercream (Dairy Free)
A Drake on Cake that's perfect for this weekend's Superbowl game! Dark stout beer in the cupcake batter adds depth to the cocoa flavor, making for a moist, fudgy cupcake. A quick and easy vegan cocoa frosting provides a sweet complement, and of COURSE everything is better with a little Drake!
Sweet Potato and Pea Curry (Vegan + Gluten Free)
This is it - THIS is the ultimate dreary day comfort food. The warming spices of curry complement sweet, creamy coconut milk and savory vegetable broth to form the base for this curry, while sweet potatoes and peas lend texture, flavor, and nutrition. A sprinkling of peanuts and sesame seeds adds delightful crunch that ties this curry together.
