Vegan dinner party!!!!

I've moved! Visit my new blog La Belle Vie for more recipes and healthy living tips. Don't forget to update your bookmarks <3 br="">

There are few things I love more than dinner parties. They're pretty much my favourite way to see and chill with friends - especially when it's not beach picnic weather. Here is the deliciousness that was enjoyed at one I went to the other week (all photos by Lucas Soloway).

Oven-roasted peppers, mushrooms and aubergine with a cesar salad. Salad made by the lovely Joanne of We Animals.

Lasagna in an alfredo sauce made by the amazing Lucas. The lasagna recipe is by PETA and can be found here, the alfredo sauce is by Don't Get Mad, Get Vegan. You can get gluten-free lasagna noodles at certain stores (check Kensington if you're in Toronto). If you can't find them, then make this dish with gluten-free pasta as a casserole!

The Kind Life's Candied ginger pears by Joe and my chocolate orange gluten-free biscotti (recipe below).

Chocolate Orange Gluten-free Vegan Biscotti
1 medium orange, juice and zest
1c 3Tbsp your favourite gluten-free flour mix
1/3c cocoa powder, sifted
1/2c raw sugar
1/2tsp baking powder
1/4tsp baking soda
3Tbsp ground flax
1/2c hot water

  1. Preheat over to 325F
  2. Sift drying ingredients into a large bowl
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together ground flax with hot water. It'll get gooey and thickish. The water has to be hot for this otherwise it won't thicken properly.
  4. Add the flax mixture, orange juice and zest to the dry ingredients and mix. You can add more orange juice if it's too dry.
  5. Press the dough into a 16 x 2-inch log. If it's too sticky, dust your hands with cocoa powder. Bake at 325F for 25minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes on rack.
  6. For a delicious brownie cookie, stop there and enjoy! For traditional biscotti, reduce oven to 300F, cut log into 1/2-inch thick slices, separate the slices on baking sheet standing and bake for about 20minutes until crunchy. Let cool before amazing all your friends with your unbelievable baking skills!
