Four Amazing Recipes to Tickle Your Taste Buds—Enjoy!

Spin-Art Dip

Better-looking than that stale macaroni art that you made when you were a kid—and tastier too!

1/2 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach
1 15-oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts (drained but not rinsed)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (you can use vegan Parmesan cheese as well)
Pepper, to taste
1 bag of bagel chips

  • Defrost the spinach in the microwave by heating for about 40 seconds on high power, then squeeze out the excess water. Chop up the artichoke hearts.
  • Mix all the ingredients, except for the bagel chips, together in a bowl. Nuke for 3 minutes, or until bubbly. Serve with bagel chips—and try not to eat all the dip yourself.

Sloppy Joels

Just as "meaty" as the original joes, except … well … there's no meat.

1 12-oz. bag veggie burger crumbles
4 buns
Pickle slices (optional)

  • Combine the sauce and crumbles in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for 2 minutes, or until hot. Place on the buns along with pickle slices (if you like pickles) and serve.

2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
