Friday 5, Vegan, Vegetarian

The Friday 5: Real food recipes #20

Friday 5 with YayYay's Kitchen Facebook banner

Welcome to this twentieth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week.

Two desserts top this week’s list

Sometimes I just can’t help myself. First it was the mini lime tarts from the French blogger, Madamcadamia, then my own accidental strawberry rhubarb custard pie–a takeoff from another recent Recipe of the Day. I’m still looking forward to trying Karen Raye’s spicy chipotle chilaquiles–all three ways, and planning on taking advantage of the hydrating properties of Katie’s switchel when we spend some time in the desert this summer. Finally, there’s an East Indian dish from Asiya of Yummy Indian Kitchen where we learn to make aloo fry (a vegetable dish) with potatoes and green chilies.
