Cookbook for all my recipes that are VEGAN!!!! I <3 Vegans!!
In some cases I have just listed sugar or brown sugar, if you are vegan make sure you are using organic or raw sugar otherwise it's not vegan. I'm pretty sure that is the only item in these recipes that would be iffy. ENJOY!!
A spicy and adaptable recipe by Jill Nussinow, "The Veggie Queen" (theveggiequeen.com). You can add other vegetables like potatoes at the beginning or chopped spinach at the end. Wrap it up in a multigrain tortilla and enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or a snack!!
This is a super easy hummus recipe in which you don't need tahini and the result is still great tasting & creamy. Not the most amazing hummus in the world but if your into cutting fat & calories this is a great one to munch on. Isa also gives us 6 variations for this hummus. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes.
(LFRV) Oh I love this dressing!!! I've had it three nights in a row and I'm thinking about it right now. I pour this over baby greens, celery, cucumbers, and shredded red cabbage and I think its quite magical!! This recipe is for one serving so multiple as needed. You could easily add any herbs or spices you want but this is perfect for me!
These are some super yummy scones! My husband adores these and I almost regret getting him hooked because they are so tempting to me as well! Work quickly with the dough and try not to over work it so your scones stay light. This recipe comes from The Vegan Lunchbox. (You can also add chopped almonds to the mix if you have some on hand - yum!!)
(LFRV compliant!) Oh my!!! I have had this two days in a row and I don't think I see an end in sight - sooooo delicious!! This is so creamy, rich, and so much better than any mint chocolate ice cream I have had (mainly because I can have so much without feeling awful afterwards!!). I use lady finger bananas which are much smaller than normal bananas...I'm not exactly sure how many this would be equal to so I had to use cups...sorry if that causes any difficulties. You may add more mint or carob depending on your tastes - this was just enough to get the flavors for me without wasting. Also I put this down for 2 servings but I drink the whole thing and feel amazingly energized but I guess you could share if you like :)
Breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This tasty blend of quinoa stuffed in a tortilla and topped with a zesty southwestern sauce and avocados is sure to fill you up! Packed with protien & its even cheezy!! Feel free to add even more veggies - onions, bell peppers.
Super quick & easy but healthy & flavorful!! We usually just use the crunchy taco shells you can buy in the store. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. She recommends serving it with the Garlic-Lemon yogurt but its not a must.
This is an incredible dip which tastes even better than it's non raw vegan counterpart. This makes quite a bit so scale back as you need. Soaking the nuts for a couple hours before hand wakes up the natural enzymes & also makes the blending creamier!!
I've been trying to come up with different ways to have citrus with leafy greens & this is an excellent option! When Vitamin C is consumed with iron it makes the iron much easier to absorb. Tons of people are iron deficient & not because they don't take in enough iron....rather that they are not absorbing it properly (You can pop iron pills all day long but if your body isn't doing anything with it your wasting your time & money!!). Citric (citrus fruit) & malic (apples & pears) acid increase the absorb of non-heme iron (dark leafy greens) which is the best form of iron. Soooo pour this lovely goodness all over a huge plate of dark leafy greens!! Kale, romaine, baby spinach....whatever your fancy!!! (LFRV in moderation + leave out oil & salt)
Well not exactly 40 but 10 and that's still alot!! This is a great meal to throw together, put it into the oven, and go do whatever until its ready. Very simple but amazingly tasty!! I recommend serving with Caulipots (Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes) which can be found in her book. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. Enjoy!
Jalapeños and lime complement each other perfectly in this spicy Mexican classic. This recipe is from vegcooking.com
I'm not really big on the meat replacement products so sometimes I leave it out or substitute portabello mushrooms or something similiar to that.
*For a spicier soup, use 2 peppers and 1/4 cup hot sauce .
(LFRV compliant!) A very yummy treat I like to enjoy which came from Dr. Graham's book The 80/10/10 Diet. This makes a great breakfast, lunch or even dinner :) Pretty much whenever I feel like eating it. Low fat raw vegan & properly combined!! Sometimes I get lazy & just put all of this in the blender to make a smoothie.
The DH loves this dressing. There are some ingredients that might not be raw depending who you ask ;) Use this as a dressing, dip for veggies & crackers, or over zucchini noodles with chopped veggies. Hope you enjoy!!
(LFRV compliant!) Popular high-carb high-calorie get you moving drink loved by many Low Fat Raw Vegans aka Frugivores! Struggling to get your calories in? This is the key & tastes amazing!! The amount of water is up to you - less for more of a pudding and extra for more of a milky drink. Play with the ratios to find what you prefer!! Popularized by Freelee at 30bananasaday.com.
Soft, succulent, organic medjool dates are best but any will do. Soak your dates for 6 hours or overnight. If you can't get organic then discard the soaking water or drain & rinse about half way through the soak time and keep the second round of soak water. (Times don't include soaking).
Remember food combining!! This will move fast through your system so nothing heavier before and wait an hour after sweet fruit for a different type.
