More recently, Kathy’s first book, The Vegan Slow Cooker, was published, and we were thrilled to discover that many of the recipes in her beautiful new book were also made with So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverages and Creamers! Kathy Hester is a true friend and fan of So Delicious, and we couldn’t be more excited to feature her as a guest on our blog! Meet Kathy:
I’m a vegan recipe developer, and it’s impossible for me to pick a favorite So Delicious product, because I use so many of them in my kitchen tool kit. And I love the fact that their products are great for people who are allergic to soy and gluten, as well as dairy.
So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk adds richness to my savory dishes. It makes the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had and makes great non-dairy creamy veggie soups. I love the thickness of it compared to other non-dairy milks.
The new Greek-style yogurts have become a morning favorite and add a great tart tang when paired with one of my slow-cooker oatmeal creations. The only thing I’ve missed since going vegan was the wonderful texture of thick, Greek yogurt, and now I can have all I want. There’s even a chocolate flavor that’s perfect for an afternoon snack!
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, So Delicious came out with holiday coconut milk flavors. I’m a nog-a-holic, so this holiday season will be extra tasty this year!
Here are a couple of recipes using some of the newest So Delicious products. Enjoy!

Mix everything together. Taste, and add extra salt or pepper if needed.
Mix with cooked pasta (I used an 8 ounce box of quinoa pasta), and serve over spinach for a simple meal. You can add some chopped vegan chick’n or extra veggies to customize it.
