As you might have noticed from our last recipe, we love ginger almost as much as we love pumpkin spice. This bread, in particular, has become a festive favorite of ours—both during the holidays and throughout the rest of the year.
Deciding to become a vegetarian 25 years ago was an impulse decision that I have never regretted making. I didn’t like the way eating meat made me feel, nor did I like the slaughtering of animals. And so one day, while separating the raw chicken breasts in a value pack into smaller portions, I stopped and thought about what I was holding in my hands and asked myself if this, if eating meat, was really something I felt good about. My wife didn’t need any convincing and just like that, we became vegetarians. We’ve never looked back, and year by year, as the research on the benefits of living a vegetarian lifestyle increase, I feel proud of the choice that we made.
Our meatless version of the classic chicken pot pie is packed with delicious and wholesome ingredients. Feel free to augment our basic recipe with tofu or meat, more vegetables, richer dairy, and an assortment of seasonings.
While we bake these tasty cookies year-round, they’re best enjoyed during the winter holidays. The delightful combination of spices truly brings out the festive spirit and fills our home with a pleasant gingery aroma.
