This Month's Recipes: January 2016. A collection of all the simple vegetarian and vegan recipes that appeared on Amuse Your Bouche in January!

The first month of 2016 is over already! It’ll be Christmas again before we know it. In fact, Christmas already feels like a million years ago, anyone else feel like that?

It’s been a mixed month for me – holiday excitement followed very swiftly by illness! I’m still suffering from shingles, but luckily it hasn’t developed into anything too major, and I should still be able to travel next week (woop woop!). The pain and discomfort is bearable (and that’s coming from a total wuss). I’m trying to rest up a bit, but I’m also trying to work really hard to get some recipes ready to go up while I’m away, so it’s a tough balance to find!

As far as this month’s vegetarian recipes go, I’ve been trying to keep them fairly healthy, as per the responses I received on the reader survey I put out just before Christmas. My healthy eating resolutions lasted about two weeks… but still, that’s two weeks of healthy eating that I wouldn’t have done otherwise, so I still think it’s always worth trying!

These were the three most popular vegetarian recipes from January:

Tofu bacon BLTs
