Vegan Apple Pie
This holiday beauty proves just how delicious special-diet desserts can taste. The pate brisee for this pie is made with safflower oil, not butter, so vegans can dig in.
Sourdough Banana Bread
When you bake sourdough bread using a homemade starter, you'll eventually end up with so much of it that you'll need to discard some to keep the amount manageable. You can compost the discard, or use it up in a recipe like this banana bread. You won't notice much difference in flavor; what you will notice is a slightly denser texture and an almost savory flavor from the use of olive oil, plus delicate sweetness from maple syrup.
