Vgarden is proud to serve up the very best plant-based products to the entire world, and this year we'll be celebrating our expansion into Europe, Asia, and North America, which enjoy their own ways to celebrate. Families pass down recipes for decades, and one common thread is butter for baking.
For vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians, and flexitarians we have great news, and that is that Vgarden’s buttery spread works beautiful in baked goods. We will be sharing recipes for each of the holidays above in the In The Garden digital magazine, sponsored by our company, and designed as a gift for the entire global community who wish to learn more about the benefits of plant-based ingredients, and be inspired by what is now possible with those ingredients.
Today, In The Garden posted the first recipe in honor of St. Nicholas Eve.
Saint Nicholas Day, also called the Feast of Saint Nicholas, is observed on 5 December or on 6 December in Western Christian countries, and on 19 December in Eastern Christian countries using the old church Calendar. It is the feast day of Saint Nicholas of Myra and falls within the season of Advent.
St. Nicolaas Koek (Dutch Spice Squares) are small cakes without which no Dutch Sinterklaas season would be complete. You can find the recipe here
