When you're vegan you have those moments when you miss the food that you use to eat. For me it is mostly meat dishes, but I find that it is usually the ritual involved more than the actual food. Like a summer BBQ or movie popcorn. I get really excited when i find a recipe that evokes the same feelings that the original dish did. This is one of them! Spicy Buffalo chickpea salad. I can't believe that I ever enjoyed buffalo chicken wings, but I did in college during football sundays! This dish hits the spot while staying true to my vegan lifestyle. My husband requests this recipe time and time again. The heat from the chickpeas is offset by the ranch—add in the celery and you have yourself the perfect bite. Try this healthy version of buffalo chicken wings and you will not be disappointed.
When I do not know what to make and it is approaching grocery shopping time I come to this delicious recipe. I always have these ingredients in my kitchen and can put this together quickly—it is a staple in my household. It has so much flavor and is pretty simple. Instead of the rice that the original recipe calls for I like to sauté some dino kale with lemon, garlic and olive oil and serve chopped with the bean curry. You can add any veggie that you have left over in the fridge and it will all work beautifully. Try this healthy, vegan / vegetarian dinner recipe next time you are at the end of your groceries—trust me you will not be disappointed.
A delicious alternative to the typical quesadilla, but with all the flavor. The adobe chili adds a kick of delicious flavor along with a spice—while the sweet potatoes add a sweet element. You don't need to use oil to get a crisp tortilla just keep and eye while cooking and flip frequently. I use my le cruset cookware for a perfect crisp. Try this pea guacamole to make this dish even healthier.
This is a great vegan / vegetarian dinner to make when you have left over veggies and crave something with flavor. The key is to use greens that are not bitter since the orange marmalade is a little bitter. Broccoli and spinach are ideal. I typically make extra sauce since the veggies soak it up.
This is a very easy vegan / vegetarian recipe that is packed with flavor. The only spices used are cumin and chili powder. The key is to use really good salsa or make fresh salsa. It is really great that only using two spices and salsa can result in such a rich soup. This is the perfect soup to pair with a salad or rice dish.
