Some like it hot—others prefer it dairy free. We’re talkin’ dip here! And this recipe gives you the best of both worlds: “cheesy” texture and flavor concocted from cashews and nutritional yeast, plus a hint of heat from chipotle pepper powder. Try it with veggies, blue corn chips, gluten-free crackers or anything that tastes even better dunked, or use it as a spread or filling (check back next week for a Spicy Stuffed Peppers recipe that puts it to good use!).
Who doesn’t love a mid-week Mexican fiesta? Make yours vegan and gluten free with this creative quesadilla, stuffed with sautéed veggies, dairy-free “cheese” and brown rice (not whole wheat!) tortillas. Don’t worry about deep-frying dangers, either. This festive favorite is lightly browned in heart-friendly olive oil for the perfect crispy coating to all the veggielicious goodness inside.

Bruschetta seems like a trendy, modern appetizer, but it actually dates back to 15th century Italy when hunks of bread were rubbed with garlic and olive oil, topped with seasonings and heated to a crisp over open flames on a grill. This updated version gets its rich, smoky flavor from sundried tomatoes and feta cheese, with chopped cashews sprinkled on for added crunch. Use storebought Italian bread to save time!
Homemade is always best, but when cooking from scratch isn’t possible, it’s OK to compromise! In this recipe, plain-flavored prepared hummus is jazzed up with chopped dill and smoked paprika—providing zesty, fresh flavor with very little effort. Make it for everyday snacking or a pleasing party appetizer, served alongside healthy veggies, crackers or tortilla chips.
