VEGAN CHORIZO AND ROASTED TOMATILLO SALSA TACOS

Every now and again, I go to the farmers market and pick up a fruit or vegetable that I have no experience with cooking. This most recent time was tomatillos.

LEARN HOW TO MAKE MALASADAS (PORTUGUESE DONUTS)!

  These donuts are eaten for pancake Tuesday and for me, taste like a cross between a donut and a beavertail. These can be made big or small and you can also roll them in sugar, cinnamon or both! I am sure there are even more ways to eat them- tag #thatplantedfork if you make these and let me know how you change it up! The recipe calls for resting the dough twice- the second rest can be as little as 30 minutes as long as they rise a little bit before you fry them. A thermometer helps for the oil to ensure the right temp, but if you don’t have one, put the end of a wooden spoon in...
