29/12/2018 vegan recipes
Today’s post was actually yesterday’s post until I mentioned that my sister-n-law shared her recipe with me back in January at which point a profusion of thoughts and memories of events surrounding that month suddenly whirled around my brain and flowed out onto the paper, or technically speaking, the monitor. So what I think you’ll learn, as I did, is to use the Weight Watchers point system as a guide, a great starting point, but not to obsess whether the specific values are right on, or not, ESPECIALLY for what is obviously a low-calorie healthful soup or salad or whatever.
We stayed at a sweet spot near South Congress, and on our morning walk we came across this beautiful cafe called Manana They always have at least one vegan baked good for sale, great coffee (with nondairy milk choices), and they carry this very lovely and fancy local brand of vegan coconut yogurt called Kokonut Kokonut yogurts are pricey, but my Austin pals assured me that it was worth a try.
By the way, Jess is one of the owners of Rabbit Food Grocery, and I didn’t take any pictures there – but it is such a great spot to stock up on vegan goodies and gifts. Originally a southern dish , it has gained popularity and can be seen in many recipes this time of year across the country.
A chipotle, (pronounced chi-POT-lee), is a smoke-dried jalapeño chilli, used in many Mexican recipes. I’m in the middle of auditing the Weight Watchers points here on my two websites and am finding a point difference on some recipes, both up and down, depending if I rounded the source nutrition information or if I didn’t.
Whether you’re hosting a cocktail party or need something to bring to the family picnic, you can rest assured that these vegan appetizers will win every time! It’s hard when trying to translate recipes into recipes for other countries since the ingredients are different.
