You may have noticed that our last post was about our favorite pumpkin recipes, celebrating Lindsey's birthday. Well, the day after Lindsey's birthday is Madalynn's birthday! As a matter of fact, all of my daughter's birthdays are in the same month! If I had thought of this idea sooner, I would have done a pizza post for Alicia, since she loves pizza. (Sorry Alicia, maybe next year!) But, just in time for Maddy's birthday, I decided to share our favorite vegan recipes.
Most of these recipes are ones that we have posted in our efforts to make sure that Madalynn gets to eat at our family events. But, there are also some recipes included from other bloggers who Maddy follows.
As I began finding ways to add vegan options to my repertoire, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to convert regular recipes to make them vegan and also, at how many of our recipes are vegan already! So, here goes! The first few are savory and then we tend to have a bunch of desserts ;)
Alicia's recipe for Easy Fresh Salsa is as vegan as it gets! She roasts her veggies before making the salsa, which adds a deeper flavor with a bit of char. This salsa is always a hit a parties!
Lindsey shared this Vegan Taco Salad recipe and trust me, you don't miss the meat! Some of the meat substitutes out there are very tasty!
It looks like we have a Mexican Food theme here! These Vegan Refried Beans would go great with the salsa and the salad!
These Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of the first vegan recipes Maddy posted and they were well received and for good reason! They are delicious!
The sweet thing about these cookies, besides the cookies themselves, is that Lindsey doesn't even like cashews! But she made them for her aunt and her sister. These Magic Vegan Cashew Cookies Bars are something you've got to try!
Madalynn came up with the recipe for these Cookie Dough Brownies because of a need she saw in the world! She is a giver! You're welcome.
Since this list is in honor of Maddy's birthday, of course I had to include this Vegan Chocolate Cake that is perfect for the vegan in your life's birthday, too! No one will be able to tell it is vegan.
Last Christmas Season, we did recipes for The 12 Days of Christmas. Maddy made these Vegan Churro Bites With Peppermint Chocolate Sauce for the eleventh day. They are amazing little nuggets of holiday flavor! (There are links to the rest of the days of Christmas, too, if you want to check those out. )
Maddy makes a delicious Cranberry Sauce that is a favorite of everyone's, not just those who eat vegan. The recipe for this Cranberry Sauce and other perfect Thanksgiving dishes are available for you at this post. There are recipes for soup, corn, mashed potatoes and apple pie, all vegan. You can be vegan and celebrate Thanksgiving, too!
