Savory Pumpkin/Flaxseed Onion Crackers. As Mr AtV and I prepare for a weekend getaway to our favorite coastal town, I've been spending these last few days deciding what food I want to pack - my favorite part of vaycay planning.

Savory Pumpkin/Flaxseed Onion Crackers

I also might enjoy making lists a little to much for my own good, but that's another story for another post (addicted to list making, anyone?). These crackers will definitely be coming along with me for our road trip...that is, if there's any left before we leave town. If you love a good savory onion cracker then I highly recommend making these. They're just as good plain as they are with various toppings like avocado, fresh sliced tomato, or Creamy Cucumber Dressing.

Important Note About This Recipe About the Onion: In my first batch of crackers I used chopped Green Onion, but you can also use Chive, or thinly sliced/minced Yellow/Red/White Onion. Option 1. Use a spice grinder (my spice grinder is actually a coffee grinder) and coarsely grind your seeds in batches. Option 2. In a bowl combine together: Vegetarian Recipes.

I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner? , I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market. Baby veggies fit in easily without having to chop them into smaller pieces. Once cool enough to handle, you can actually pick one up and eat it without a fork. I only wish the Daiya cheese was a little more melted (I would have left it in the oven for a bit longer but the tips of the wontons were getting to be pretty brown and I have a very touchy smoke detector).

Eons ago, I happened to spot some "white slabs" sitting next to my all time favorite Paneer, in the aisle of the grocery store I frequented. See, I was this good girl who went shopping for my mom during the weekends, all on my own, so that my mom can relax her feet. At times I used to buy other stuff that caught my fancy apart from the list my mom provided. So on this particular day, this packet with something called as "tofu", went into my basket. I, in fact, thought it was probably another "brand" of Paneer and even wondered at the peculiar name ( ..those naive days!!!) Once home, my mom had a different story to tell. Chickpea Recipes.
