I'm someone who thinks about food 24h/day!... And this blog is just for fun, I consider myself a recipe tester more than a cook. Here you'll find my favorite vegan and vegetarian recipes. I am sure there will be something for you.
First time using PB2 I bought off Amazon (for the peanut flour). LOVED IT. I had it for breakfast and must say it can kill all your cravings for sweets and will additionally keep you satisfied until lunch.
I'm no meat lover, but this seitan recipe is simply awesome! I thought about trying this as an option in sandwiches like if it were a burger. Works perfectly.
VERY IMPORTANT: don't forget to line your loaf pan with foil, and then with parchment paper. If you fail to do that, the seitan is going to stick to the pan (I used a 18X cm, don't go for bigger ones because it will turn too flat, the meat doesn't rise).
Personal twist: Since I was breastfeeding at the time I baked this, I decided to make a few changes (I was avoiding onion, garlic and hot spices):
This cheesy spread is traditionally served in Bavaria. I’ve never had the original one, but was obsessed by this vegan version! Delish!
70g red onion
1 TBS olive oil
200g smoked tofu
10–12g rolled oats
1 tsp sweet paprika powder
½ tsp hot paprika powder (optional, can be too hot for some people)
½ tsp marjoram
1 pinch of salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Good pinch of ground caraway
2 TBS apple vinegar
1 bunch chives
1. Soak cashews overnight or at least for 6 hours in water to soften them. Discard water and rinse the cashews. Set aside.
2. Cut a few onion rings and save them for garnishing. Chop the rest into small cubes. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the chopped onion and cook them until lightly brown. Set aside.
3. Using a mixer or food processor, blend the tofu, soaked-softened cashews, margarine, oats, both paprika powder, salt, ground pepper, caraway and vinegar until pureed.
4. Chop chives and add half of to the blended mix. The rest save to garnish together with the previously cut onion rings.
Tip: serve with some vegan salt sticks or pretzels.
Drinking barley water is a way to increase your milk supply when you're breastfeeding. It's so easy to make!!! During my baby's first months I made this recipe a couple of times when I didn't have alcohol-free beer around (also recommended by my midwife).
Just as the author said, I've also been trying to incorporate more broccoli in my meals although I don't like it. But with these balls I was able to sneak them in and they taste REALLY GOOD. I totally recommend not skipping the (vegan) cheese.
