Yummy (and healthier) Holiday Recipe Suggestions :<)

It’s not always easy to think “healthier choices” when it comes to holiday recipes.

But it doesn’t have to be ALL bad either. ūüėČ

Here’s a round-up of holiday-ready recipes from the Veggie…archives that I hope you will enjoy.

carrot hummus

Bold and Bright Carrot Hummus

This oh, so yummy hummus recipe was a winner in a recipe contest, here at Veggies, Yarns & Tails, a few years ago.

Delicious with crudit√©, tortilla chips, pitas…great on wraps too.

And what a gorgeous bright orange color to add to your holiday table.

party mix

Slow Cooker Party Mix

Who needs¬†additive-laden commercial party mix, when it’s so easy to make it in the slow cooker?

Pick and choose your fav ingredients and leave out what you don’t want. This is by far, the best party mix I have ever tasted.

Fill up a pretty jar, add the recipe on a ribbon tie and it makes a great hostess gift too. ūüôā

Kasha and Beet Salad with Celery and Feta (page 92)

Kasha and Beet Salad with Celery and Feta

This is one of my all-time fav marinated salads.

Oh, so delish and colorful too. Gluten-free is an added bonus.

A great potluck or buffet table addition.

black bean soup

Black Bean Soup

What could be better after a day at the rink or skiing, than a hot and spicy bowl of black bean soup?

This is my version of this classic, comfort soup.

Makes a crowd-pleasing and oh so satisfying¬†“meal in a bowl”. ūüėČ


Mushroom Stroganoff with Herbed Pasta

My redo of this classic, oh so rich and yummy main dish. Lower in fat and no meat required!

If you are a meat-eater, you won’t miss the beef, I promise. ūüėČ

And if you already¬†‚ô• mushrooms like I do, this is definitely one you’ll enjoy.

Makes a quick and elegant main dish, perfect for a holiday supper.

berry fruit cobbler

Berry Cobbler

This luscious Berry Cobbler recipe is courtesy of the Veggie Table.

Lower in sugar than a lot of cobbler recipes. I sub Earth Balance for the butter and use buttermilk, not cream.

A nice dessert to make when you’ve got supper in the oven and want something sweet to finish a meal.

I make mine with organic frozen mixed berries¬†(so convenient)¬†and top with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. Yumm…


Happy Cooking and Happy Holidays! ūüôā

On the Menu for Supper Tonight…


Mushroom Stroganoff with Herbed Pasta

A “staple” recipe for supper that I come back to again and again. I’m making it again tonight as the white button mushrooms were wonderful at the grocery store last night.

Tonight,¬†I’m serving it with the Herbed Pasta (as shown) and baby carrots with parsley for a side veggie. Yumm…

Also a very popular recipe with visitors to this blog and many people who have my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians.

¬†It’s a great choice for summer too. Quick, easy, elegant¬†and no oven to heat up!

Happy Summer and Happy Summer Cooking! ūüėČ
