I love finger foods, there is just something about eating bits of composed bites that seems so much more refined than shoveling forkfuls in your mouth from a bowl. When I found out Celine and Tami were writting a cookbook on finger foods I couldn’t wait to get a copy in my hot hands.
Upon cracking open Vegan Finger Foods the first thing I noticed was all the lovely photos taken by Celine and the very modern ideas. I had a hard time deciding what I would try because so many different recipes were appealing. I think the recipes in this book would appeal to all the different kinds of vegan diets out there. There are recipes that feature whole foods, are soy free, soy heavy, gluten free, bread based, raw, baked, complicated, easy, cupcake heavy, sugar free, comfort food, or chocolate based.
The first chapter is a short primer on finger foods and any types of special ingredients they use. Then it goes into “Veggie-Centric Finger Feasts” with recipes like “Kale Cucumber Cups” and “Snacking Chickpeas” these were all vegetable heavy and on the easier side. Next was “Stuffed and Dipped” with recipes like “Sauerkraut Stuffed Seitan Rounds” and “Baked Buffalo Tofu Bites” which I think most excited me. Then “Bread-Based Bites with recipes like “Pull Apart Pesto Bread” and “Spinach Swirls with Quicky Marinara” and finally “Sweet Little Somethings which includes recipes like “Creamsicle Ice Lollies” and “Goji Berry Cacao Bites”.
I’ve tried a bunch of recipes from the book including the Tahini Popcorn Balls, the Mexican Potato Skins, and the Baked Buffalo Tofu Bites and they have all been fantastic. Maybe my favorite has been these baked Jalapeno Poppers though. Delicious!
If you would like a copy of Vegan Finger Foods too you are in luck! Since Tami and Celine are the coolest and longtime mofo-ers they are going ALL OUT and giving away 4 copies for the US and 3 copies for the UK & ROI too. Holy Shitake! Since the latter group are probably snug in their beds right now I am also going to keep this contest open for 48 hours so everyone has a chance to enter.
