Vegan Humous, Hummus, Hommous

Equipment
Blender

However the hell you spell it – its good shit.  Who wouldn’t have thought a tasty bean dip would be such a great and healthy snack?  Watch out for store-bought hummus, though – its not diet friendly at all!

This simple recipe only takes a few minutes, and it’s well worth it 🙂

Here’s a healthy, dairy-free alternative to the usual Naan, which I have to admit, is sooo delicious.  It really bugs me that it tastes so great and isn’t vegan, but now – here we have it!  This recipe is pretty easy, and once you get it down, you can put your own stamp on it to make it really special by adding spices, garlic, or whatever you like!

Hearty Vegan Cabbage and Potato Soup

March 1, 2015

Here’s a little something to warm the mind, body, and soul.  I can remember as a child when my grandparents, who lived in Germany for many years, would make cabbage soup in the winter and it was absolutely delicious.   I’ve been looking for a good vegan recipe for this winter classic, and I think I’ve found one that works wonders.  Top with a little vegan cream and vegan parmesean if you want to add a little extra umph to the recipe.  Deeeeelish!

Ain’t nothin better than a chicken salad sandwich.  I love mayo and that was one of the hardest things for me to give up when I became vegan, but no excuses, right?  Well, I’ve come up with a recipe for chicken salad that is pretty damn good and I think you’ll love it.  Here you go:

Apple, Fennel, and Carrot Slaw

Serves 6 Servings

This is deeeeelicious!  A really nice twist on a old school bbq classic – coleslaw.  If you can’t find the vegan yogurt, you can sub vegan mayo mixed with vegan cream, but I think the yogurt really makes the flavor!

Oh, and get this – each serving (there are 6 servings in this recipe) has less that 1 g of fat and less than 50 calories!  Yeah!  High five!

Indian Beans on Toast

March 1, 2015

When I first moved to Britain, I was introduced to what I think is probably the weirdest breakfast food on earth:  Beans on Toast.  With all of the Indian culture here in the UK, I thought, why not put a twist on a classic and make Indian Beans on Toast?  Well, here you go – and its surprisingly good for meals other than just breakfast.

If you’re looking for a recipe for vegan naan, we’ve got you covered!  This recipe calls for it, and you can make it yourself by going here.

Vegan & Gluten Free Potato Flat Bread

Course

Here’s a special breadish treat for those gluten free vegans out there.  (I just recently became gluten free, so feel free to make suggestions or comments.)  I think its pretty damn good!  In Ireland, the potato farl is very popular and sooo tasty as well.  However, its loaded with carbs, butter, and a hellovalotta fat, which makes it taste great, but bring on the guilt!  This might work as a replacement!
