Next up is a recipe for Vegan Stuffed Shells by Caitlin Shoemaker, or @frommybowl on Instagram. Caitlin says her recipe is made from simple, easily accessible plant-based ingredients but still achieves a creamy, cheesy flavor! Due to having to stuff the shells, prep time is about as long as it took time which is 30 minutes. The final product looks totally worth it!
For dessert, Catherine Perez, or @plantbasedrd on Instagram offers a delicious recipe for Vegan Cowboy Cookies. She says her cookies are soft, melty, and “Santa approved.” These Cowboy Cookies are loaded with oats, chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans. Additionally, this recipe is a little more nutritious than your average cookie. Whole-grain flour allows for a high percentage of fiber and peanut butter is the main source of fat. The prep time is only 5 minutes, and the baking time is only 10 minutes!
To go along with dessert here is a Vegan Hot Chocolate recipe by Laura Marian, or @laurentiamarian on Instagram. Laura uses a mixture of water and dairy-free milk preferably, coconut milk, to increase creaminess. She also adds a dash of nutmeg powder and cinnamon to enhance this special holiday treat! This vegan hot chocolate is the perfect match with Catherine’s Cowboy Cookies!
