Christmas-themed Recipes from the Pages of ‘Spork-Fed’, Vegan Recipe Book from the Spork Sisters!

About a year ago, we had featured the “Spork” Sisters and introduced you to their online vegan cooking classes, which anyone, anywhere in the world can take, in this story. To recall, the sisters also manage Spork Foods, a Los Angeles-based organic-vegan cooking company offering in-person cooking classes, consultations on healthy eating, and recipe development.

We recently caught up with the sisters, Jenny Engel and Heather Goldberg and were excited to learn that they have just published their first cookbook, Spork-Fed: Super Fun and Flavorful Vegan Recipes! And, what’s more, they have graciously offered to share two Christmas-themed vegan recipes from the pages of their new book on this space, as you will see, quite literally!

Before you take look at the recipes, here is the foreword to the recipe book by another set of sisters, Emily Deschanel (star of the TV series, 'Bones') and Zooey Deschanel (film and TV actor):
Spork-Fed is a savvy, upbeat introduction to vegan cuisine written by sisters who know great food! Flavor is the top priority in these easy-to-prepare recipes, many of them gluten-free. With full-color photographs throughout, this visually striking book shows you how to make everything from decadent desserts to homemade tofu. The Spork Sisters share more than 75 delicious recipes, along with dozens of health tips. In addition to the recipes, Spork-Fed’s themed menu pairings will help any cook prepare for special occasions, quick family weeknight meals, or extravagant feasts sure to impress any guest.
And, now for the two Christmas-themed recipes straight from the pages of Spork-Fed! Please note that you can substitute agave syrup with jaggery syrup if you have difficulty procuring the former, so the sisters have informed us.

“Our food choices have an incredible impact not only on our metabolism, but also on the initiation, promotion and even reversal of disease, on our energy, on our physical activity, on our emotional and mental well-being and on our world environment. All of these seemingly separate spheres are intimately connected.” ~Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University and Author of The China Study~
