Smoothies, Cinnamon Rolls and That’s a Wrap.

So, my new friend Katie over at Well Vegan is on a Smoothie Train, check out this Super Green Smoothie, her Blackberry Cashew Smoothie and her Peanut Butter Smoothie. Y’all know how I feel about smoothies, so of course I hopped right on board. The Super Green Smoothie is featured in the photo below. Pure love.

Super Green Smoothie

For many of you Vegan Richa needs no introduction. The girl is a baking, Indian food making vegan fool (in such a good way). I’d been drooling over her cinnamon roll recipe from the get go. I just can’t believe it took me so long to make it. It’s one of the “best I’ve ever had” moments… and that’s not one I say too often. Just. Do. It. It’s healthier than it looks.

Cinnamon Rolls

Shira at In Pursuit of More really got to me in her Food Bloggers Against Hunger Post. She knows how to speak from right from her heart and it makes her whole blog glow with love.

Chapatis

I don’t think I’ll ever buy flour tortillas again after making the Indian Chapatis, and the Spiced Lentils are simply gorgeous. Yeah, she never steers me wrong. 

What food bloggers are you loving at the moment? What’s the best recipe you’ve tried off a favorite site recently?

    Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    I started following all 3 of these food blogs….some great recipes in this post Ms. Somer.

  2. I am so glad you made some cinnamon rolls! tat is some goooey goodness.
    you know, if i would be in India, I would be making chapatis everyday. Like rolling 20 of them for every lunch and dinner! I dont know how my mom does that. I do the rolling once a week:) The chapati wrap is such a great idea!

    • Goooey Goodness for sure. I can’t decide what I liked best, the icing (I used a coffee substitute) or the luscious rolls themselves. Oh. So. Good. Oh man, Shira’s Chapati. I make them all the freaking time. Can’t stop… I even got a new rolling pin… Obsessed much?

      • :D i have 2 rolling pins that mom got me which make the rolling effortless.. they are thin pins. Let me know if u need more pins.. Mom’s visiting mid July!
        oh and now I can start inviting families too! Make a trip the Northwest! you all can stay with me:) Hope things are getting better.

  3. Aren’t we on the best team ;-)?! I don’t know Katie (yet), but I adore Shira and Richa. How I wish I had one of those cinnamon rolls right now w/ my cup of tea! Comfort!

  4. Thank you for posting! I am now following all of you and I LOVE the recipes!

    Can’t wait to try the Cinnamon Rolls! They look amazing. Matter of fact, so do the wraps! Thanks for including the Well Vegan Smoothie in your post!!!

    • Happy to do it! Everyone needs more smoothies in their life! I’m going to share your smoothie 101 photo on my site later today. SO cute!

      Oh girl, yeah, you’ve gotta make the cinnamon rolls, and the chapatis…and the spiced lentils. Seriously. Like now :) xx

  6. My love affair with chapatis began in Malaysia way back when. So easy to make! Way better — and healthier — than standard fare tortillas, save maybe the whole wheat kind. I was taught to make them using ghee (clarified butter) which is decidedly not vegan, but olive oil is a delicious sub. Lately, I’ve been too lazy to make them myself. Looks like a rolling pin job for the girls in our newer, slightly confined summer digs. And no plastic waste bag to dispose of.

    On vegan cinnamon rolls? Seriously? Drool, drool.

    • Double drool, you MUST make them both sometime this summer, though preferably not at the same time, that would be a lot of flour flying around…

  7. Shira is great – I admire the work she does in her community. Her chapatis seems very similar to the bannock we make, so it’s an easy transition to give her wraps a try. Thanks for the link – I had missed that post of hers.

    • She’s so amazing. Love her and her NSF program. You’re right, the Chapatis does look similar to the bannock. I love how the bubbles form when you are cooking it. Beautiful.

  8. You are the sweetest thing – and for the record I tried to leave a comment this am (I am traveling for work this week) and it should have worked! But alas, it did not. I basically said a million times I love you. Cause I do. Those cinnamon buns look crazy good. Crazy. Good. :) XO

  9. Me and cinnamon rolls don’t make good friends ;-) I can’t quit once I start :-D

  10. Wow, those cinnamon rolls look crazy delicious! I am so envious of everyone in your household right now!

  11. Thank you for the links! I’ve been a follower of Richa for a long time but I didn’t know about Katie and Shira’s blogs…superyumfulness! I’ve discovered so many crazyamazing vegan bloggers…some faves of late:
    Ana http://www.anafernandez.net/

    Cheers!

  12. Those cinnamon rolls look delicious!

  13. This all looks so amazing – I Love Shira and her beautiful blog!! I am looking forward to visiting Richa – OMG the cinnamon rolls look out of this world delicious, and Katie and her delicious smoothies :-) Thank you Somer! Hope you are feeling better!! XXX

  14. This is a nice post. Those chapathis look good. You can leave out the all purpose flour and substitute it with a mashed avocado for super soft chapathis.
    I am definitely trying out the cinnamon rolls soon. And if you are ever in the NW, drop by for some authentic vegan South Indian food:)

    Hey your blog is great! Would love for you to follow mine too! mymilehighpie.wordpress.com Thanks for all the great veggie recipes :)

  16. Those all look wonderful, although I’m tied between the cinnamon rolls and the wrap (Just finishing up your smoothie challenge for the 3rd time, so I’m a bit smoothied-out, if you can believe that!)

    • Haha! You know what they say about the 3rd time being a charm ;)

      Thankfully both Richa’s dessert and Shira’s wrap are pretty harmless :) xx

  17. I’ve been dreaming about Richa’s cinnamon rolls ever since she posted them. I need some counter space where I can roll out dough! :-)

  18. Love these tasty recipes! Can’t wait to get more good ideas about healthy eating from your blog!

  19. Thanks for the link to the indian spiced wraps! Sounds great!

  20. Smoothies, cinnamon rolls and Indian food? Sounds like the perfect food groups to me!
