Dear Earth Balance Coconut Spread, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways ...
1) You're delectable schmeared on toast and sprinkled with a little nooch.
2) You taste like coconut, but not in an overpowering way.
3) You make bomb-ass Handmade Coconut Samosas with Lemon-Curry Dipping Sauce:
Yes, these samosas look more like fried dumplings. But I promise they're stuffed with curried mashed potatoes and peas seasoned with a little Earth Balance Coconut Spread. Oh, and there's shredded coconut mixed in there too. The dipping sauce is made with Vegenaise mixed with curry powder and lemon juice.
The soft, fried samosa dough is made with eight tablespoons of Earth Balance Coconut Spread too. I served my samosas with extra curried potato filling and steamed kale seasoned with sriracha, soy sauce, and garlic.
The recipe for these tropical-inspired samosas came from a little recipe booklet from Earth Balance called "Cooking with Coconut." It was included in our schwag bags at Vida Vegan Con last August, and this is the first time I've made anything from it. It's a pretty awesome book filled with EB-based recipes for everything from Vegan Pho with Coconut Ginger Broth to Coconutty Chickpeas & Kale to Coconut Cream Pie.
