Our copycat recipe for Jujube Date and Walnut is not only better than the original, but gives you other options as well! The Jujube Date & Walnuts (basically walnut-stuffed dates) are very popular, particularly with the Vegan Costco crowd, but Costco is discontinuing them, so if you are missing your date & walnut fix, this Copycat Jujube date and walnut recipe is for you. It’s also for you if you would just like to make your own, and happily you can get both organic dates and organic walnuts at Costco (the Jujubes are not organic). Now, you might think that shoving a walnut into a date hardly qualifies as a recipe, and ordinarily you’d be right. However we do things with dates and walnuts that you may not have considered (yes, as we read that we realized that it could sound kind of naughty, but we’re ok with that. :~) ).
Sometimes you’re lucky enough to stumble into a recipe that is so easy to make, and so yummy and nutritious at the same time. Our tempeh/walnut tacos only take a few minutes to whip together, but they taste divine!
You might have some fresh cranberries left over from your Thanksgiving feast. We still had half a bag in the refrigerator, as usual, but this year we decided to do something about our predicament.
There’s no dessert quite like cheesecake. Smooth, creamy, sweet, decadent — what’s not to love? However, most of the cheesecakes you encounter in restaurants and coffee shops are made with tons of dairy and gluten. Since we love this delectable confection so much, we decided to make our own, using plant-based ingredients. The filling utilizes cashews and coconut milk, blended to perfection. Stunned by our stellar results, we decided to share the secret with you. You can thank us later.
Do you still have a few leftover zucchinis from your summer garden? You may be wondering what to do with them. Most likely, you’ve given several of them away to friends, and they’ve made it clear they don’t want or need any more. Try as you might, you can’t get rid of all of them! Never fear — our sweet bread recipe will give a whole new purpose to those succulent, green vegetables. The addition of unsweetened cocoa and walnuts will send you into orbit. Good thing this recipe makes two loaves, because you won’t have any trouble devouring the first one.
Morning glory muffins have been a favorite of ours for many years. This recipe utilizes your favorite vegan and gluten-free ingredients!
Sometimes it can be difficult to follow a perfect diet. Even for those who know the importance of a pure organic diet of whole foods, it can be difficult to maintain that during times that are busier than normal. When a busy schedule kicks in, the need for convenience can take over. Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice health for convenience.
