Monday Night Football Buffalo “Chicken” Pizza

Monday Night Football screams for junky food. This pizza is just junky enough. All of the flavors of buffalo chicken wings, but but meat-free and with a lot less fat and cholesterol. Plus there is plenty of blue and green on it. Go Seahawks!

If you want to prep this in advance so you don’t miss any of the game, prep it up until the final 5 minutes in the oven, then put it in the oven during a commercial or halftime.

Serve this with a salad or a veggie tray with a healthy dip like hummus, baba ganoush, or tatziki.

Celery, Apple and Walnut Salad

Celery is kind of a forgotten vegetable.  I usually have it on hand so that I can make my husband’s favorite tuna salad, or to include in vegetable soups, but other than that it is used for very little else.  This week I got two huge, beautiful bunches of celery in my Full Circle Farms delivery.  It got me thinking about how I might expand my use of the vegetable.  This salad is a wonderful way to showcase celery.  I served it alongside Miso Noodles, but it would be a great compliment to a wide variety of meals.  I love vegan salads, especially if I’m serving a main course that contains dairy.  (I try not to include dairy in more than one course of a meal.)  This salad would be great alongside a pasta, lasagna, risotto or pizza.
