Hi friends! Here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The Vegan Broccoli Pesto Calzone recipe was taken from here VegWeb-BPC. I wish I could take credit for it, but I was just trying someone else’s recipe. But dang, was it good! It was so good!
The recipe calls for homemade pizza dough. I have made my own pizza dough in the past, but this time I just bought Pillsbury pizza crust. It had no animal products and rolls out so easy! Also I steamed the broccoli (and my added cauliflower) a little too long. Remember, crisp veggies are the best kind. You definitely don’t need to steam more than a few minutes. They really just need a quick flash steam or blanch. (I don’t know if flash steaming is an actual cooking term, I simply call it “flashing”. Ahh the multiple meanings of the word. I mean it in the cooking sense.) Otherwise, these were pretty amazing. The cornmeal on the outside gives it a great taste and crispy-ness. My husband gave it a 8.5-9 out of 10. Sweet! So I hope you get a chance to try the recipe and tell me what you think.
By the way, my husband rated the vegan chocolate chip cookies (below) and gave them an 8/10. I served them to my in-laws while they were in town and they seemed to like them too!
These are my blueberry cornmeal pancakes. They also have been a big hit! My friend Nikki says they’re the best vegan pancakes she’s ever had (she’s not a vegan). Haha! Well, she said they were so good she would have never guessed there were no eggs or milk in them. She wasn’t sure if that was an insult to a vegan-should they taste specifically different? No way! As long as she thinks they are delicious, I’m happy with that. This recipe was also taken from VegWeb-BCP. Enjoy!
Just something to keep you comin’ back for more. Mmmmm.
