In Central and South America, Peanut soup is a well-appreciated dish, full of flavor and originality, especially popular in Bolivia and Ecuador. The ground nuts are used as a thickening agent in this soup, which has been altered to be totally vegan! This recipe serves 6, so be sure to invite your friends over on a cold day for a bowl!
In the Caribbean Islands, the Plantain is one of the most popular things to cook with. There are a number of dishes you can use them for, but here is a really popular one that is not only vegan, but delicious as well! I serve this all the time as an appetizer, finger foods, etc…everyone loves it! Make sure your plantains are very ripe, but still firm – this is very important in this recipe! This dish can be served hot or cold, and goes great with the Mojo dipping sauce!
This spicy salad is the perfect side dish for anything hot off the bbq grill. The spicy flavor adds a bit of Caribbean flair to an otherwise plain ‘ol boring potato salad. Sooo tasty!
This Columbian side dish is deliciously rich and full of flavor. I have found that it goes excellent with a nice piece of grilled tofu or a grilled mushroom, but also makes a great base for a rice pudding dessert!
This is my favorite salad on a hot day – the flavors go SO well together and its such a nice, light thing to eat when the weather is so hot. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
I included the mushrooms in this recipe, but this jerk seasoning can be used on anything you’re going to grill, be it tofu, tempeh, mushrooms, veggies, or whatever you choose! If you’re using the mushrooms, just pull off the stems and marinade them overnight in vegan Worcestershire and red wine with olive oil. Then, about 6 hours before grilling, coat them in the jerk seasoning ingredients listed below. Then toss on the grill!
This easy salsa goes excellent with anything fresh off the BBQ grill. And the best part is, its easy, vegan, and quick to make!
Here is a tasty vegan recipe – goes great as a side dish or can be eaten as a main course. I prefer to use fresh artichoke hearts, but if you’re in a hurry, you can buy them canned. Just remember – fresh is ALWAYS healthier and better tasting!
Tempura batter is really easy to make, but make sure you eat the tempura as soon as you make it, otherwise its not hardly as good as it should be! Also, make sure you cut your veggies nice and thin so that they cook thoroughly and evenly with the batter.
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 🙂
