Here is the round-up of date recipes I received for the Veggie/Fruit a Month event that a hosted in December. I find that dates are a perfect base for holiday dishes and treats, so that is why I picked them for the month of December. Unfortunately, I didn't receive many submissions, but that's OK. I know December tends to be a very busy month for many people. The recipes I did get look really fantastic though and I hope they encourage people to incorporate this delicious fruit into their cooking more often!
The first is a Vegan Whole Wheat Walnut Dates Cake from Swathi of Taste De India. This cake looks really moist and perfectly spiced.
The next recipe is also from Swathi and Taste De India. It is for Dryfruit Nut Balls. These balls look so delicious and full of healthy ingredients! I love dried fruits.
Last is my recipe for Dates Stuffed with Cardamom Goat Cheese and Salted Pistachios. These little appetizers and a perfect bite of sweet, savory, and salty all in one. A couple other date recipes I've made are Sugar Plums and Date-Walnut Bars.
