Thankful ~ Quick Vegan Snacks!
I'm kind of going backwards here - but I REALLY wanted to show you what I did for a quick and easy dessert last night!
Underneath these cherries? Raw dates rolled in coconut that I smushed down into a 'crust-like' base. I then used some canned cherries that happened to be vegan that I found at a discount store a while back. I would have used fresh but they are not readily available in my area at the moment. I have shredded coconut on hand so I sprinkled that on top as well. This was VERY satisfying and VERY MUCH a treat! I only did a "mini pie"...I used a dish that we have on hand for dips/dressing/condiments.
In case you cannot picture what I am talking about with the dates rolled in coconuts...here's a photo! I ate two small 'rolls' yesterday with my lunch, too!
Another thing I am thankful for is dried apricots! When I was 3 years old my FAVORITE foods were dried apricots, lima beans, and sprouts! My mom should have KNOWN I would grow up to be a vegetarian with a menu like that, eh!? These are just a few things I have been thankful for this week!
