Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites

You guys!!  My husband made the most amazing Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites!  There are tons of quinoa bite recipes on the web, but almost ALL of them contain cheese.  So he set out to make some Cheesy Vegan Quinoa Bites.  He totally outdid himself with this one!!  This is definitely a recipe we will make often in our house! He is just so much better at the savory dishes than I am.  A few of his other recipes are very popular on the blog.  Like the Sweet Potato Chili and the Pumpkin Enchiladas.

He made these in jumbo sized muffin pans.  However, I HIGHLY suggest making them in standard sized muffin pans.  I will mention the cooking time for both versions in the recipe.  These are just perfect. They are crispy on the outside and a little gooey in the middle.  These cheesy vegan quinoa bites are also gluten free in addition to being vegan. :)

Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

Last year I made a stuffed acorn squash with wild rice and apples.  It was a hit, so I made a Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash this year.  I love the presentation of the stuffed acorn squash.  So pretty.  This quinoa stuffed acorn squash is very easy to make!  You can make the filling a day in advance if you like.  Then all you need to do it roast the squash the day of.  If you need more vegan Thanksgiving ideas, you may like this post.

The sweetness of the acorn squash goes so well with the quinoa.  I added the cranberries for a little tart flavor too.  I used fruit sweetened cranberries instead of cranberries sweetened with sugar.  So they are a little on the tart side, but work well here.  This would be a great main meal option for your vegan or vegetarian guests.  It’s quite filling!

Easy Cabbage Salad

I made you another salad.  This time it’s an Easy Cabbage Salad. I know we are headed into November soon, but it’s still warm here in Texas.  It was actually 90 yesterday!  So salads it is.  This Easy Cabbage Salad is vegan, gluten free and can be made paleo if you omit the edamame.  The tahini dressing is so good!  It would also make a great dip for veggies!  It would also make a great dip for my spring rolls.

We whipped this salad up in no time at all.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  If you are a lover of all things salad, you may also enjoy this post.  If you avoid soy, you can probably use green peas in place of the edamame.
