Vegan

Inspired by one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio, Green Vegetarian, this poblano ranch is vegan, unique, craveable, and delicious!

This dressing is not only wonderful on your favorite salad, but makes a show stopping dip as well!

These summer rolls are fresh, crunchy, and filled with the flavors of crisp summer vegetables. If tofu isn’t your thing feel free to use whatever protein floats your boat! You can also change the vegetables, add avocado, rice noodles, basil, mint, cilantro etc. Your only limit is your imagination.

Real talk- this is a whole lot of chopping and if I was smarter I totally would have bought shredded carrots, and prechopped veggies to take out some of the work. Learn from me, absorb my wisdom! Unless you’re into an odd amount of chopping then you know…go on with your bad self!

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Assembly Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Vietnamese
Servings: 16 rolls
Pin it!
Ingredients:
 
  • 16 rice paper wrappers
  • 14 oz brick extra firm tofu
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 large red bell peppers (julienned)
  • 2 large carrots (peeled, julienned)
  • 1 large english cucumber (julienned)
  • 1 head green leaf or butter lettuce (chopped)
  • ½ cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 2 Tbsp tamari
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp garlic chili paste or sriracha
Instructions:
  • Drain and press the water from your tofu and slice it into 16 equal pieces.
  • In a small bowl mix together the peanut butter, ½ cup water, 1 Tbsp sesame oil, 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp garlic chili paste or sriracha, and 2 Tbsp tamari. If you want this to be a thinner consistency just continue to thin with water until you like it. This is your dipping sauce!
  • In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat pour 1 Tbsp sesame oil and swirl around the pan. Add the tofu slices and cook for roughly 5 minutes per side or until they are golden brown on each side. Sprinkle the warm tofu with 1 tsp black pepper, and allow the tofu to cool. Set aside.
  • Prepare your vegetables and fill a pie dish or shallow bowl half way with warm water. Prepare an assembly line with the lettuce, carrot, bell pepper, cucumber, and tofu. You will also need a work area large enough to roll your wrappers that you aren't afraid to get wet.
  • Working one at a time submerge your rice paper into the warm water soaking the wrapper until it is soft enough to bend without cracking. This should take no more than one minute. The wrapper will continue to soften as you fill your summer rolls so there's not need to soften it completely.
  • Lightly wet your working surface and spread the wrapper flat.
  • In the center of the softened wrapper lay down your lettuce, then carrot, cucumber, bell pepper, and top with the crispy tofu.
  • Fold the sides of the wrapper in, then the bottom up towards the center overlapping the sides, and tightly roll the rest of the roll towards the top to close. Just like wrapping a burrito! The wrapper will become sticky and remain closed on it's own. Follow the same directions for the remaining rolls.
  • When all the rolls are finished pat yourself on the back for doing all that work and enjoy your summer rolls dipped in the sauce! Way to go champ!

Ingredients:

 

  • 6 cups unsalted nuts of your choice
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or light brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix all ingredients together well.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  • Pour the prepared nuts onto the parchment or silicone.
  • Bake in heated oven for 40 minutes stirring half way through.
  • The last 10 minutes will vary depending upon your oven, watch them closely to prevent burning. You’re looking for a crunchy coating and a roasted, sweet smell. You will see sugar granules and that’s okay! The nose knows! #trust.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool. As they cool they will harden and clump together slightly. You can easily break them apart with your fingers.
  • Enjoy!

I love recipes that cook themselves. Go ahead and buy your favorite GF bread or make whatever it is that you love to smear apple butter on because you’re not going to be able to resist when you wake up to the incredible smell! As always you can sub light brown sugar for the coconut sugar, but y’all really should get on team coconut sugar. It’s bomb! Btw- sometimes during the fall I cook my pork chops in apple butter as a twist on classic pork chops and applesauce. SO GOOD!

Crock-Pot Apple Butter

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 16 hours
Total Time: 16 hours 5 minutes
Course: sauce
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 cups
Pin it!
Ingredients:
 
  • 4 pounds golden delicious apples
  • 2 pounds honeycrisp apples
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground mace
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or light brown sugar)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Instructions:
  • Dice the apples into one inch pieces and place into a large bowl. Do not include the cores. Also there’s no need to peel the apples, unless you want it suuuuuper smooth. It’s your ship captain. Sail!
  • Add cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, nutmeg, coconut sugar, and white sugar. Toss to coat, then add the maple syrup and vinegar. Toss again and add to your Crock-Pot set for 12 hours on low with the lid on.
  • I start this before bed so the majority will be done while sleeping. Easy Peasy. For example if I get up at 6 am I start this at 6 pm the night before.
  • When you wake up give the apple butter a good stir, and enjoy the blessed fall aroma of your kitchen.
  • Blend the apple butter until smooth by either adding the mixture to a standing blender or using an immersion blender directly in the Crock-Pot.
  • If you used a standing blender add the mixture back to the Crock-Pot.
  • Remove the lid from the Crock-Pot and cook on low until the butter is as thick as you want it. This part of the process is about cooking off the water so the longer you cook it the thicker it will get, but the less butter it will make. I cook it for about 4 more hours with the lid off.
  • When the apple butter is ready allow it to cool slightly and place into mason jars. You can also cool it completely and freeze it in Ziploc bags for a delightful treat all year. Keep unfrozen apple butter in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!

If you’d like a finer blend you can blend this in a spice grinder or a high powered blender.

  • Allow the wine to reduce down to 4 Tablespoons of liquid.
  • This will take about 25-30 minutes.
  • When wine has reduced stir in the salt, and transfer to a large bowl.
  • In the bowl add the rest of the ingredients and stir it up with your hands until everything is well mixed.
  • Spread the salt mixture onto a baking sheet and allow to dry overnight.
  • Now that it’s dry you’re ready to be the most flavorful being in all the land! Sprinkle it on everythaang. Haters? Sprinkle. Irritating family? Sprinkle. Best Friend? Bless them with a sprinkle.
  • When you’re done making the world a better and tastier place you can place the rest of the seasoning into a jar or bag. It doesn’t matter which- after all you’re the most powerful in all the land, and I’m not trying to tell you what to do.
