Sooo I was totally going to make my next post an actually meal...but then these won me over. Sweets always win with me. Always. So here's another quick snack recipe that also functions as a healthy dessert. Oh, it's love. These taste like the insides of a fig newton + the divine, luxurious flavor of hazlenuts. This is a Wannabe Chef recipe...I simply added the coconut for a little flare :) These are more traditionally winter flavors...but WHO CARES?! I'd eat these all year long.
After eating out quite a bit...Amanda and I decided to eat in tonight. I didn't have a whole lot on hand, but I knew I could use up my sweet potato pappardelle from Pappardelle's Pasta, tempeh, and spinach. From there I found a pesto recipe and tempeh marinade to work off of, and voila! This is an extremely filling, flavorful, and healthy meal which is easy to whip up. The marinade ingredients + the pesto ingredients may not seem like they go together, but trust me they do! Plus, feel free to make as many substitutions as needed; this recipe is very forgiving.
