This recipe is originally from Pamela, but of course I had to make a few changes just because that is who I am. By who I am, I really mean I hadn’t properly shopped for this recipe. I didn’t have tomatoes or green onions. I made up for it by adding some chopped red peppers and regular onions along with a few more spices. The picture above is ‘prebaked’. I popped it in the oven for a few more minutes when we got to my sister’s and served it with corn chips. Pamela has a slew of other recipes posted on her blog that I can’t wait to try either. Check them out here. Everyone devoured this dip! Thank you, Pamela!
We also had a seitan stew and the low fat chocolate bundt cake from V’con for our Christmas Eve dinner with the family. Good food, easy to take.
Christmas isn’t about the loot, but it is about thinking of others. Our family was more supportive than ever of the vegan thing this year and I am very appreciative. We got a gift certificate to Vegiterranean, to Allison’s Gourmet and some super cool measuring cups and spoons. Everyone was so thoughtful and very understanding. We try to get cool gifts for everyone, too, because that is where the real fun lies, but somehow we usually feel we kind of miss the mark. There is always next year. If we start thinking (really hard) in January, maybe we can come up with something great for them. But honestly, if we did come up with a brilliant idea, I know we wouldn’t want to wait to give it to them.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas!
