Holiday Party

We had a staff holiday party last week for my work. It was a time to be together, celebrate company and show everyone how delicious vegan food can be! I made three dishes, all of which were a big hit, and were the kind of foods where you don’t think whether or not its vegan.

Quinoa Salad

First up was a quinoa salad was raisins and chickpeas. I adapted the recipe from Martha Stewart, using raisins instead of currants, lemon juice for the orange juice and adding about a cup of chickpeas.

Kale SaladNext is my new favorite ‘go-to’¬†appetizer: the Raw Tuscan Kale Salad from 101 Cookbooks. I am convinced that this is the best (and possibly only) way to eat kale. I love the super healthiness of this dish, and the lemon and raw garlic give it a little kick of spicy. I simply omit the cheese and bread crumbs and its perfect. Make sure you let the kale sit in the dressing for a few minutes, or overnight, to allow it to soften up.

Chocolate Braided BabkaFinalement, the Cinnamon Chocolate Babka (braided). This vegan version is from VeganDad. Flaky, almost like a chocolate croissant. The cinnamon filling added an extra kick that was delicious.

I would highly recommend using any of these recipes as simple appetizers to your next party.
