Veggie Frittata with Salsa Verde

VeggieFrittata2

This quick frittata is one of the most requested dishes in my household. It can easily have countless variations by using seasonal vegetables from your local farmer’s market in place of the ones listed. Try shredded kale instead of asparagus and zucchini in place of the carrot for a fun twist or try adding minced red pepper for a dash of color.  Recipe and photo contributed by Allyson Kramer, from Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats Around the World * ©2013 Fair Winds Press, reprinted by permission. more→

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dates (Gluten Free)

Gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookiesAs a vegan with celiac disease… one thing that I thought I may never enjoy again was a classic Tollhouse style chocolate chip cookie. So I took it upon myself to de-glutenize and veganize a recipe I happen to consider perfect in every way (except for all
the animal ingredients it calls for, of course). Let me tell you … I kicked its ass.

I am betting that no-one could tell these cookies are missing like 90% of the original ingredients- and why waste your time telling anyone when you can be stuffing your face with such deliciousness? And since I’m a glutton for tastiness–-I added little bits of Medjool dates.
