Almond Snack Balls

These snack balls are great for a high-protein vegetarian snack or after-school treat. I like to serve them for breakfast with toast/crackers and fruit. They are great chilled and served straight out of the refrigerator! Another use for them is in vegetarian soups. Their firm texture holds up to the hot broth.

Pickled Nopales and Peppers

We have an opuntia cactus (prickly pear) plant in the garden, and we harvest the pads (nopales) to make this pickled dish. You can buy pre-trimmed, cut nopal in many supermarkets if you do not have access to the fresh variety. This is a spicy condiment that goes great with burritos or other Mexican dishes. It is also wonderful on veggie burgers.
