First, I want to publicly announce my love for A-K from Swell Vegan! I’ll tell you why: I received my much anticipated copy of Swell Vegan’s zine over the weekend and I quickly got to work on her Sweet Potato Cranberry Scones. If you’ve seen her pictures and you are a fan of scones, then you’ll understand why I was so excited. All I can say is that they definitely don’t disappoint – they are fabulous!
Sweet Potato Cranberry Scones
They are made with spelt and brown rice flours so they are good for you too. The texture is fantastic and they are a perfect balance of savory and sweet.
I also scored some fresh green beans at the farmer’s market this weekend so I made her green beans replacing the mandarin oranges with a regular orange:
Orange Sesame Green Beans
A perfect summer snack when chilled.
I also made her mole sauce to roast brussel sprouts with. These should be called Mole Bombs! because man, were they hot! I like heat but I think I didn’t have enough brussel sprouts for the amount of sauce I used – definitely will make again but with more veggies.
Black Bean Burgers
All in all it was a great tasty weekend! I hope these pictures inspire you to head on over to the Swell Vegan
and order your zine today, it’s worth its price in scones!
