Last week I got a fabulous surprise from Corature on Instagram, I had won a giveaway for any product on their site! It was such a fun treat in the middle of a hectic week and picking just one product was not easy! I ended up going with the Cork Clutch Purse Wristlet in Orange because I love big wallets that securely hold everything including my check book, stash of Tofurky coupons, and my collection of reward cards and partially used gift cards.
Finding stylish vegan eco-friendly accessories is not easy – I find as I embrace the vegan lifestyle more, faux vegan “leather” bothers me a bit, but fabric purses and wallets can lack professionalism. My other wallet is a huge, indestructible Haiku zip wallet made from recycled water bottles that I’ve been using for years. It’s functional and holds everything, but not exactly classy to pull out on a fancy evening. The Corature Cork wristlet is!
Cork is the new eco-friendly classy vegan leather and I think I need their matching iPhone case and purse to go with it.
I’m obsessed with the orange trim too, it works well with the cork and makes a fun fall fashion statement. This wallet will hold everything!
I love it, it feels so classy to use and think I need to get hubby a matching cork wallet too now.
I always pick up a peanut powder bargain when I can because it’s so freaking good in smoothies as a low-fat alternative to peanut butter. But it’s also awesome as a lighter alternative in this spicy peanut dressing.
Spicy Light Peanut Dressing
- ¼ cup peanut powder
- ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1 clove of garlic
- ½” thick chunk of fresh ginger
- 2 tbsp. tamari sauce
- 1 green onion
- ½ cup water, as needed
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
The texture on this dressing is lighter and a little more runny which can be adjusted with less water. But I liked that it coated a large meal salad with a kicky peanut flavor easily.
A lot of traditional spicy peanut dressing recipes have both peanut butter and oil which is just a fat bomb for a healthy salad. This dressing has a creamy texture with a decadent spicy peanut buttery flavor without oil and full fat peanut butter.
The flavors paired well with organic greens and pinto beans for a filling dinner.
Poor Miko pouted about not being able to share, he still doesn’t understand that garlic is no good for dogs.
