Don't have a spiralizer? Well if you have kids or feel like you need to revive your interest in the kitchen - it is high time you splurged the $25 to get one! It is so much fun to use, and you can use the various settings of blades, depending on what you're making. Of course, if you're saving your pennies to attend the Hoedown, you could always chop the zucchini into chunks as an alternative OR use a veggie peeler and peel away lengthwise - be careful once it gets to the core - easy to cut yourself. :)
2. In a large skillet, cook the zucchini noodles over medium heat with 1 TB olive oil. Cook, tossing and stirring the zucchini for 2-3 minutes until softened and beginning to turn translucent - don't overcook. Set noodles aside.
3. Saute carrots and bell pepper in 1 TB until tender - approx. 5 min. (red onion too if you're using).
4. In a food processor or blender - blend the garlic, ginger, peanut butter, lime juice, tamari until smooth.
5. Mix everything together in a large pan.
6. Garnish with cilantro, green onions, chopped peanuts.
1 cup of vegan butter
1 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup organic sugar
3 tablespoons nondairy yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon finely ground coffee
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/4 cups chocolate chips
1. Cream together butter, sugars, nondairy yogurt, and vanilla. Use electric mixer or wooden spoon
2. Sift together flour, coffee, and baking soda, then mix together with the butter mixture and stir in the chocolate chips or chunks
3. Take the dough and form one or two logs by rolling it back and forth in parchment paper. You can either put it into the freezer or fridge (it stays good for up to 5 weeks) or cut a slice off and bake them
4. If you bake them right away (how could you not?) preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and then bake the sliced of pieces for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
