Purple Cauliflower Crackers Vegan Gluten Free

Turn your cauliflower into these crunchy, flavorful, nutrient-dense and gluten-free crackers! It's such a fun way to eat more veggies and it's super easy to make! You can even make these with your kids as a fun family activity. I got this gorgeous purple cauliflower a while ago and wanted to make something that can really showcase its beauty! So I made not one but two recipes with it. The first was these pretty purple crackers!

Shanghai Style Vegan Wontons in Peanut Butter and Chili Oil Sauce

This, is the GOAT of all wontons - sorry to all the other wonton varieties out there I love them all but nothing tops these Shanghai street food style wontons! They are stuffed with umami tofu and colorful vegetables, cooked then chilled, and doused in a luscious peanut butter and chili oil sauce.

I highly recommend making your own chili oil following this recipe ! It's sooo much more aromatic and flavorful than storebought an

Vegan Pineapple Fried Rice

Make your fried rice tropical with this vegan pineapple fried rice! And to take the fun up even another notch, why not serve it in a pineapple bowl! It's naturally gluten-free, and high protein with the eggiest tofu scramble. Pineapple fried rice is a popular dish in Thai cuisine, known for its sweet and savory flavor profile and tropical vibe. While the dish itself is totally legit, it's something locals would eat as well, serving it in a pineapple bowl is more of a "touristy" thing but hey, no one can argue this is not super fun and smile inducing! This recipe is veganized so it's made without seafood, meat, or eggs but it's still packed with so many flavors and balanced nutrition! It's also highly adaptable, you can use whatever vegetables you like or happen to have in the fridge, some great alternatives include sweet bell peppers, snap peas, grean beans, zucchini, and more. INGREDIENTS: 2 cup day old white jasmine rice 1 whole pineapple 1 small sweet o
