I’m still here, just seriously neglecting blogging. I have some posts written, but most of them aren’t food-centric, seeing as I’ve been traveling across the U.S. (we’re in St. Paul, MN now!), without much time to cook. Also, I’m getting nearly all my meals free right now, so… goodbye, motivation. I find I don’t get as much feedback on non-recipe posts, though they do get just as many hits, so I’m conflicted about publishing them sometimes.
Anyway, just wanted to pop in to offer some ideas for the coming 4th of July celebrations! This was a popular post last year, so I updated it a little. Need vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, grain-free, and generally tasty dishes to serve? Whether you are signed up to bring an appetizer, snack, entree, dessert, or drink to the party, I hope this list can help!
Easy GF, Vegan Baked Beans (my personal favorite, and gets rave reviews from even the most skeptical)
Unfried Refried Beans (great for layered dips)
Salads, Appetizers, Sides:
Condiments and Dips:
Simple and Savory Date Tapenade (amazing with socca or crackers)
(serve all these dips with apple slices, crackers, etc.)
What will you be serving up?
(Last year I brought the olive and date tapenade with socca cut into pieces for spreading it on, and it was gone in literally less than half an hour. It wouldn’t feel like a summer holiday without some vegan baked beans, though!)
