Serves 6 Servings

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!

Vegan Spinach and Plantain Rounds

Course

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!

Vegan Jerk Portobella Mushrooms

March 2, 2015
Course

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!

Vegan Vegetable Tempura

March 2, 2015

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.

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 🙂
