These vegan pigs in a blanket are called "snuggy bunnies." How about that?

Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a pioneer of delicious plant-based cuisine, with a ton of cookbooks under her belt. Her recent release has a signature fantastic name: The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook. Everything is as colorful and attractive as it is delicious and hearty, like these carrot-based vegan pigs in a blanket she calls “snuggy bunnies.” 

I don’t have to tell you that these are the cutest things in the world! Darling little roasted carrots in puff pastry, because bunnies love carrots and real pigs deserve real blankets. They’re sprinkled with a little paprika for smokiness, but the flavors are kept simple, relying more on the gentle roasting of the carrot, which sweetens a bit as it cooks. There are sesame seeds for fanciness, and I serve these with a hit of mustard just to drive the point home. I love this recipe because there isn’t much prep to do at all — most of the time spent is wrapping the baby carrots in their blankets.

Tip: Purchase the thicker variety of baby carrot if you can. The thin ones kind of reduce into nothingness. Make sure they are just a little under ½ inch in diameter.
