GLUTEN FREE+VEGAN CREPES

GF+V Crepes

Crepes have been a slight obsession lately and I can’t help but stare at these photos and drool as we speak. Not only is this a quick a simple recipe, but guilt free. Crepes are a great way to get creative in the kitchen. It’s pretty much a blanket for any of your sinful fillings that you desire to have. That might have been a little foodporn but I mean how can you not when the possibilities are endless?

Steps:
Whisk flour, milk and water together. Add more water if consistency is too thick. Season salt and pepper to taste.

PORTOBELLO ‘BACON’ STRIP SLIDERS

Portobello 'Bacon' Sliders

It’s official, I ate my weight in sliders, testing out some Game Day munchies. Here’s a little twist on the typical coconut ‘bacon’ recipe we vegans love. The best part about this recipe is that you can sub out mushroom slices for any protein of choice such as tempeh, tofu, or mixed veggies.

Ingredients:
2 large Portobello caps
1 tbsp Tamari or soy sauce
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
pepper, optional

Steps:
Slice mushrooms in 1/2 inch thick slices.

In a bowl combine Tamari, maple syrup, liquid smoke and a dash of pepper. Toss in sliced mushrooms to coat.

On medium high saute until mushrooms shrink in size and the edges are slightly crispy.

Assembling Options:
5-6 mini slider buns (buttered & toasted)
vegan mayo (used  Just Mayo)
fresh avocado slices
tomatoes
baby spinach or greens of choice

I want to see how you recreate mini sliders for game day! Make sure you #ahnestveggie so we can share the love for food, football and sliders!

Enjoy
