**Special HVF Update It is with heavy hearts that Mary Ellen and I would like to announce next Friday, April 28th will be our very last Healthy Vegan Friday. We have loved so very much hosting these weekly potluck parties, especially getting to know all of you. We really feel like we have a little family that has grown over time. Many of you have been with us from the start and have supported us and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate this. And some of you are newer and we love that you have found us and shared with us. Most of you know that I recently started a job and my time commitments are shifting and it’s hard for me to figure out what I can continue with, sadly I just don’t think this is one of them. I still want to keep blogging as it’s something I really enjoy and I’ve made so many wonderful blogging besties, but I think it’s time to let HVF go. Thank you for everything
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.
Easy Vegan French Pâtisserie Fruit Tarts from A Sprinkle of Vanilla Sugar:
One of the things I love best about this blog is the writing. You can curl up with a cup of tea and read it like a good book. It almost transports you to a whole, new place. And the food. Oh the food. I spied these pâtisserie and mistakenly assumed they couldn’t possibly be gluten free. But I was pleasantly surprised. They are! And they sound easy to make and leave your guests with a wow factor. These will be made for my next dinner party for sure.
Vegan Hot Cross Buns from Masala Vegan:
Oh I can almost smell these pillowy golden buns right now. Although they are great for Easter, I think they would be something fun to enjoy any time of year for a sweet treat for breakfast. Or made for company while serving tea. Fancy.
Raw Key Lime Pie from Veggies Save the Day:
In Amy’s post, we get a sneak peak at the Blossom Cookbook with this stellar dessert recipe. Although I would love to check out the Blossom Restaurant in New York, it’s a bit far for me, so at least I can try making some of their food at home. And why not start with this dinner party worthy dessert? Yum!
Easy Black Beans & Rice from Running in a Skirt:
Now that I’m a working girl, I have so much less time for cooking. It’s a bummer for me, especially since some nights I find myself ordering pizza :/ It’s recipes like this that will help me keep on track with meal planning. Quick, easy recipes without sacrificing healt or taste. This would make a great lunch too!
This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Overnight Oats:
Speaking of saving time… making breakfast the night before is a huge time saver! Especially the one day a week where I teach a dance class before work. Ain’t no one got time for breakfast after that. But I can make this delectable dish the night before and pack it to go (and eat at my desk while I work haha). Blueberries and lemons are one of my favourite combinations (… right up there with chocolate and pb!). And that cream cheese topping… omg. Way to get excited about breakfast!
I’m sharing my Rhubarb Lentil Soup:
Rhubarb doesn’t always have to be sweet ‘ya know! It can be savoury and it’s oh-so-good! I make this for Terry and I whenever one of us is sick. So it got made twice in the past two weeks. Not super fun, but at least we got a delicious, warm, comforting sweet/savoury bowl of awesome to help us get healthy again.
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!
Let’s get sharing! I can’t wait to see what you bring this week!
