It is not always easy being a vegetarian, especially if you live in a small town. Recipes can call for strange, unheard of ingredients that can prove impossible to find if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your backyard. Don’t get me wrong- I would love to shop at Trader Joe’s, but with the nearest one over four hours away, I have to work with what I’ve got. And today “I’ve got” Vegan Pumpkin Scones fresh out of the oven. I found the recipe for these easy to make scones in the Student’s Go Vegan Cookbook by Carole Raymond. This is a great recipe because the ingredients are simple and can be found in almost any supermarket. These delicious pumpkin delights go great topped with Earth Balance or fruit preserves. The yummy scones come hot out of the oven and cook in about 15 minutes – making it the perfect snack for a cold, busy day. Just brew up a fresh pot of Yerba Mate tea and enjoy your scones!
