The end of 2014 is approaching and the end of a year is a great time to reflect on what we have achieved and to give thanks to all the blessings in our life. You following this blog is one of my greatest blessings…
I would like to share and reflect on what I consider to be the best recipes from KarmaFree Cooking these past 12 months… Hope you have enjoyed them too.
So without further ado, in no particular order…
And if you love any other recipes… please share with us in our comments section. We love to hear from you all. Happy Holidays and a great 2015.
With so much people running around malls these days around the Xmas season, sometimes it’s not about how much you spend on gifts, but how heartfelt a present can be. What can be more heartfelt than a gift you make yourself?
Here are a few ideas you can easily make in your kitchen and that for sure, won’t get re-gifted.
You can make a few batches of this easily and bottle them in clean water bottles. Add a bow and it makes a great hostess gift for any Xmas party.
This is a dessert anyone will love – It’s vegan, gluten-free and super easy to make. Give it away in disposable containers and it makes a great dessert to bring to that holiday party.
Cranberry Sauce is mostly eaten at Thanksgiving, but package it in glass jars, but a bow around it and call it Cranberry Preserves and makes a great gift for an office crew.
This is even simpler to make when you buy almonds already peeled… it’s a great snack for a night of drinks with friends and even to bring to that family gathering to have a little something to nibble on before dinner.
Make an extra batch of that Coquito you made for a party and churn it into the best holiday ice cream ever!!!! This is a gift from you to yourself.
Taro Root Fritters are perfect all by themselves…
However they can become so much more if you dip them into something – like a Mayo Mustard Dipping Sauce. I use Vegenaise Mayo and to me, because I haven’t bought traditional mayo in such a long time, I believe this tastes as creamy and decadent as if made with any homemade mayo.
You can make as little or as much as you want… but here are some proportions for you so you get the drift…
VEGAN MAYO MUSTARD DIPPING SAUCE
¼ cup Vegenaise vegan mayo 1 tbs horseradish mustard, but your favorite mustard will work here Pinch of Kosher Salt Sprinkle of Sweet Paprika
- Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and serve alongside your fritters…
And if you’re not into mustard, you can always go to our trusted Puerto Rican staple, MayoKetchup. Right??
