Vegan Holiday Main Dish: Mushroom-Chickpea-Hazelnut Tart

To be introduced to this dish by my yoga teacher Sara Davidson Flanders, was perhaps the first delight of 2015. I love chickpeas, and hazelnuts, and to me, they are similarly shaped, which is usually part of the whole experience. This is savory, satisfying and festive. Even though the holidays are “behind us,” it’s never too late to celebrate by making this. Bon app├ętit!

This Mushroom-Sage-Hazelnut-Chickpea Tart is your vegan main dish for your holiday season dinner. Christmas-approved recipe. The number one question I have been getting lately is “Kathy! I really want an amazing vegan main dish for Christmas dinner, any ideas for me?” My usual answer is to refer you guys to my entrees section of my recipe index, or this holiday menu, or the holiday section of FindingVegan.com or other amazing recipes online. But this year, I have to suggest this recipe, I made it last week and after one bite I was swooning. With green veggies and red pepper on top, this Christmas-y recipe is your vegan main dish solution to holiday feasting!..

Holiday Tarts. I adore pot pies and tarts for main dish entrees. They are elegant, easy to serve and make-ahead approved! You can easily slice them like pies and serve to guests in an elegant way. I have long loved Dreena Burton’s famous holiday chickpea tart. I send that link to friends and family all the time. So I decided I wanted to make my own amazing vegan tart-style main dish for the holidays. And boom, a new menu tradition was born.

Just in time for Halloween

I’m finishing my 21-day cleanse this week. But while I won’t jump right into Halloween candy, I need an alternative, because “[a] little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.”

Nevertheless, I need an alternative (I want chocolate), so this is my excuse to finally make these Double Chocolate Quinoa Cookies.
