While this bakes, you will be enchanted with the aromatic mingling of nutty coconut sauce infused with lime, ginger, and curry. It is a deeply flavorful dish that is also almost effortless in preparation. Everything comes together lickety-split and you have an exotic bean entrée to serve over rice.

This makes a lovely, easy appetizer for special occasions. I say special occasions, as puff pastry isn’t the kind of thing you’d want to eat every day—a bit high in fat, and not all-natural. But some major brands are vegan (including Pepperidge Farm) and anything made with it is festive and delicious. Photo by my friend Tony Zackin, who shot this before I used him

These blondies are from Sweet and Easy Vegan* by Robin Asbell. I was originally attracted to this recipe due to the sprinkling of coarse salt over the top. As someone without much of a sweet tooth, but with a penchant for salt, I knew that this would send this treat over the top for me, and indeed, it did! My family enjoyed this quite a bit, too, proof being that it was practically inhaled shortly after coming out of the oven.
