The addition of peas to a classic hummus adds a warm, green flair and flavor. Making your own homemade hummus is a cinch—just throw 6 ingredients into the blender or food processor, and whiz them up to make creamy, delicious hummus in no time to serve with crackers, pita, or veggies.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Hazelnuts

Soup is a nice start to a holiday party. You can ladle it up in mugs to sip, serve it as a starter course to a sit down meal, or enjoy it as a hearty main component. Completely plant-based (vegan), this soup is quick and easy to make. Just roast the squash in the oven or on a grill, sauté the veggies and herbs in a pot with broth, and then whiz it all up in a blender. Garnish with crunchy, nutty hazelnuts, fresh herbs, balsamic vinegar, and EVOO to make the soup really sing.

Chickpea Tabbouleh

Whip up this twist on a classic tabbouleh recipe as a rustic, satisfying salad for your party menu. It’s good cold or at room temp, and it holds up well on the buffet table.

German Potato Beet Salad

A German-style potato salad is simple, tangy and served warm. I added a pop of brightness with the addition of another root vegetable—beets. This easy, wholesome German Potato Beet Salad is the perfect complement to your party table.

Golden Beet Veggie Balls with Almond Sage Cranberry Crema

If you’re trying to shine the light on plant foods this holiday, try making a plant-based entrée alternative. One of my favorite options is veggie “meatballs”—savory little balls filled with the goodness of beans, grains, vegetables, and herbs. These crispy veggie balls are filled with the earthy, holiday flavors of golden beets, white beans, sage, and hazelnuts. Serve them with this easy, plant-based almond crema dip flavored with cranberries and sage. 

Sage White Bean Veggie Balls with Pomegranate Mandarin Sauce 

This recipe for Sage White Bean Veggie Balls with Pomegranate Mandarin Sauce is perfect for your New Year’s Eve appetizer platter. These little veggie balls disappear so quickly—even my carnivore friends snatch them up. If you have extras, you can freeze them for later on. The sauce, made with pomegranate and mandarin orange, is just the perfect amount of sweet and tart, offering a wonderful accompaniment for the earthy flavors of the veggie balls. 

Maple and Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts 

This easy roasted Brussels sprout recipe calls upon maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, cranberries, hazelnuts, red onions, and rosemary to really bring on the flavor, making it a wonderful, savory side at your holiday party menu.

Tollhouse Pan Cookies 

These Tollhouse Pan Cookies are so easy—just pat the dough into a baking sheet and slice them into irregular squares for a simple, delicious treat.
