As 2022 comes to a wrap, we look back at a wonderful year at CNS and the many wonderful recipes we shared over the year! We love seeing which recipes you all loved the most, not only to try them ourselves but also to help us develop recipes in the year to come. This year we saw a huge trend in chocolate treats, no surprise there! Also, a love and appreciation of veggies, from Moroccan Stew to Veggie Pad Thai.

Nutty Noodles with Vegetables

Nutty Noodles with Vegetables

This super easy noodle recipe is the perfect example of how a few well-placed garnishes can take a dish to another level. The crushed peanuts add textural diversity, the lime a splash of brightness that pairs really well with the spicier elements of the dish, and the Thai basil an aromatic freshness.
Chocolate Doughnuts

These doughnuts are not only whole grain but also free of oil and processed sugar, so you can include them on the list of healthy breakfast foods you serve to your family.
Moroccan Spiced Vegetable Stew

Moroccan Spiced Vegetable Stew

This stew has a bold, warm flavor thanks to the blend of Moroccan-style spices. Serve it with a grain or bread on a cold evening.
Veggie Burger Sliders

Fire roasting accentuates the natural sweetness of tomatoes, making them a fun option for a burger recipe like this one.
Vegan Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a decadent dessert traditionally reserved for upscale Italian restaurants. The light sponge is soaked in coffee, layered with a thick cream filling, and topped with a generous dusting of cocoa powder. Whole food, plant-based living doesn’t get much better than this!

Vegetable Pad Thai in Tamarind Sauce

Vegetable Pad Thai in Tamarind Sauce

Oven “Fried” Tofu

Oven “Fried” Tofu

This is a super easy and delicious way to bake tofu. Tossing the tofu cubes in almond meal and nutritional yeast before baking gives them a crispier texture, as well as a slightly nutty flavor. It’s a delicious addition to almost any dish that you would usually eat with tofu.
