Welcome to another edition of Vegan Monday! Every week I am experimenting with Vegan recipes- some are quite simple, some require little more effort. Today’s recipe is fairly easy, simple and delicious.
I was searching Pinterest for recipes with brussel sprouts (our favorite!) and found this interesting one from So Hungry I Could Blog (love the name!)- Baked Sweet Potatoes with Brussel Sprouts, Cranberries and Pecans. My concern was the lack of any type of dressing or liquid and I was worried that the end result may be a bit dry. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not only tasty, the moisture from the baked sweet potato made it moist and almost creamy.
As you can see from the pictures and the recipe itself, blue cheese is added. I found a Vegan Blue Cheese at Whole Foods we decided to try to make it Vegan. While it lacked the punginess and bite of real blue cheese, it was a decent substitute.
I served my potatoes alongside this Kale Salad with Peanut Dressing recipe that has been a huge hit on both my website and at my house. Can it get healthier than that?
Tell me in the comments below- what are you making for Vegan and/or Meatless Monday?
