Seasonal Couscous

March 2, 2015

A few years ago I was to the point where every time I thought of the word “salad”, I thought I was going to shoot myself.  When I first went vegan, I ate nothing but salad for the first 6 months because I had no idea what to eat.  However, I started getting creative and realized there are endless possibilities when it comes to salad…and they don’t all have to have the leafy green stuff in them!  Here is a great recipe for an autumn-style couscous salad that is perfect for all seasons.  Serve it cold or at room temp, any time of year.  Its also a great side dish to take to a party because its got a little something for everyone in it!

Vegan Cuban Cassava Chips

Cassava, otherwise known as manioc, mandioc, or yuca in Peru is a carbohydrate root food that has high fiber content, and the leaves are a valuable source of protein. It is long and ugly – looks sort of like a big fat sausage with rough outer skin. It is very important to make sure you are buying SWEET cassava, not bitter, because bitter cassava has leaves that contain cyanide, and we don’t want anybody out there meeting their end by the hands of a root, do we?

Anyway, since cassava is pretty bland by itself, its best served with a dipping sauce rich in flavor, which is why I’m throwing in my secret recipe for Cuban Mojo on the site as well. Just follow the link below if you’re feeling inspired. Enjoy and good luck!

Vegan Vermicelli Soup

Cuisine
Course

This is a popular Mexican soup, great as an appetizer or as a main course.  The base of the soup can be made and frozen for later use and you can add the noodles when you get ready to serve it – but its best fresh!  Make sure when you buy the vermicelli that you double check to be sure its vegan, not made with egg!  Some types of vermicelli are sneaky like that, but you can always substitute a pasta that is similar in shape and size that is vegan!
