Healthy Vegan Friday #129

Happy Friday my dears! We made it through the week. I’m looking forward to hosting a holiday treat exchange tomorrow (which I will share with you Monday), a holiday party (a girl likes to get dolled up once in awhile) and relaxing (aka catching up on blogging!). What fun plans do you have?

Mary Ellen and I are really excited to see your holiday themed recipes this week!!


Share them with us today and we will share our favourites next week.


Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Pumpkin Mushroom Bowl from A Hedgehog in the Kitchen:


I’m a sucker for anything that is served out of an edible bowl. And how pretty is this dish? The rice takes a little more time and effort, but sounds well worth it. And well, anything with mushrooms!

Japanese Roasted Ratatouille Spaghetti from Sprinkle of Vanilla Sugar:


Who knew spaghetti could be so gorgeous? I love this Japanese inspired ratatouille with eggplant and squash. Talk about a comforting dish, and seasonal produce to boot.

Pear Parsnip Pie from Healthy Helper Blog:


I’ll admit to being an apple fanatic, but Kaila gives us a friendly reminder that this can be a good time to use our under-used, under-rated friend, the pear. And parsnip in a pie? I like the idea of sneaking veggies into pie… especially during the season of overindulgence.

Cranberry Sauce Quick Bread from Strength & Sunshine:


This gluten-free, cranberry studded bread has few ingredients and can come together quickly. Sounds like a great dessert for the holidays, and a super creative way of using up that homemade cranberry sauce.

Mary Ellen is sharing her Black Forest Baked Oatmeal:


Dessert for breakfast? Yes please! This could make a yummy treat for breakfast or a dessert for later in the day. Either way, it’s a win. Topped with homemade coconut whipped cream, you bet I’ll be making this sometime soon (probably tomorrow!).

I’m sharing my Chocolate Peppermint Bark:


This can be made in about 15 minutes (plus extra time for freezing) and makes a fantastic DIY holiday gift. And it’s chocolate and peppermint! Best combo ever (aside from my beloved pb and chocolate obviously).

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

  1. Oooo holiday party!! Totally agree, we deserve to dress up at least once this season lol. I’m looking forward to a Christmas break so I can catch up on some behind-the-scenes stuff. Hope you are enjoying your week hun!

  2. Holiday party and treat exchange sounds so fun! I really wish we’d live closer!

    No big plans for the weekend… But I got to start wrapping Christmas presents so that I’m not too overwhelmed within the next 2 weeks!

    And thank you for those delicious recipes… I just can’t wait to try your Chocolate Peppermint Bark!

  3. Ashley and I recorded the Dolls & Doughnuts podcast today, and we talked about our favorite chocolate combinations. Chocolate mint and chocolate peanut butter were definitely in my top 3, along with chocolate and coconut!
