I’m guessing that many happy couples will be spending tonight cuddled up inside. But “takeout” is so not romantic guys. Scoot in the kitchen with your valentine and whip up this vegan feisty fiesta feast together!…
Your entree can be paired with some California-inspired Tomato Mexican Rice and spicy salsa rojo. Add some of my party lemon guacamole, and my favorite Mexican side dish: sauteed sweet plantains. Also fun is my salsa verde or jalapeno poppers.
Anytime I’m serving a Mexican spread I always like a big bowl of chopped citrus on the table. I marinate mandarins, oranges or grapefruit with black pepper, lime and a drizzle of agave…smells divine and you can add citrus to tacos, salads or nibble in between bites.
Another creative, protein-rich addition: my corn cake bean balls! I adore these as appetizers or as part of a tapas spread. You can even make mushroom bean balls too!
Pop by your favorite vegan-friendly grocery store and pick up vegan sour cream, vegan chipotle seitan sausages and even some fresh flour or corn tortillas. And don’t forget the Daiya or Follow Your Heart vegan cheese to melt over your tacos, enchiladas, burritos or homemade nachos.
The perfect party bevie: White Fruity Fizz Sangria
Have a happy, love-filled fiesta!
