Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9 this year. If you’re going to cook a meal for the special mom in your life, I’ve hunted down some recipes for you to consider. And, just in case you’re the person who will be making me something special for Mother’s Day, or any other day, all of these recipes make my mouth water.
I know I’ve got readers who are meat eaters and some who are not, so I chose these Mother’s Day appetizers with that in mind. Choose the most sustainable or organic ingredients you can afford for these treats, and you’ll make mom even happier.
For the omnivore mom
For the vegetarian mom
Apple-Nut Blue Cheese Tartlets
– Pre-made miniature phyllo tart shells are filled with blue cheese, apples and walnuts. They sound delicious as is, but I wonder what they’d be like if you switched out the apples for pears. I bet either works really well.
For the vegan mom
Vegan Squash Crostini
– Winter squash and shallots are pureed with almond butter. The mixture is spread onto a toasted baguette and served warm. I’m not a vegan, but I’d happily start a meal with this.
