I just wanted to do a quick post to share a recipe by a fellow food blogger that reminds me of my childhood. It’s a recipe for vegan mincemeat. My mom used to make mincemeat pies when I was younger, but I haven’t had one in years. I think I may have to try out this recipe! I remember liking it as a kid, and it would be fun to make one this year.
The blog that it comes from is called Frugal Feeding and you should check it out. He posts a lot of recipes that look really good! I’m often left feeling inspired after reading his posts. It’s not a vegan blog, but a lot of the recipes can be easily made vegan.
Traditionally mincemeat would contain beef suet and some sort of beef roast or steak, but this recipe is a vegan friendly version. It’s a British tradition to have mincemeat pie around Christmas or New Years. There’s apparently also a lot of history and traditions surrounding mincemeat or “mince pies”, which I didn’t know about.
I’m wondering if a lot of people in the US still make mincemeat pies? I know my family used to, but it’s not something you hear about often here. Thanks for posting the recipe Frugal Feeding!
