I am having lots of fun working my way through my new cookbook, “Vegan Finger Foods” by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes. Click back a bit on the blog to see their amazing (and unusual) Brewpub Cauliflower Dip. As I wrote then, and repeat now, I can’t believe the strange combination of ingredients in that dip. Somehow they work!
The cookbook also has a great stuffing for jalapeno peppers. Again, unusual ingredients, but they come together beautifully. I have a freezer full of jalapenos from my bumper crop last summer, so it’s poppers, poppers, and more poppers around here. I imagine this beany-creamy-lemony stuffing would be good on a pizza as well ….. I’ll let you know.
Today I present the Marinated Mushrooms from “Vegan Finger Foods.” No unusual ingredients here: olive oil, lemon, herbs, vinegar. So incredibly simple and amazingly delicious. I liked that the ‘shrooms are fresh, and not cooked. Not only were these great as a finger food, they would be great on pasta, salads, or stuffed in a tortilla.
