Are you new to the vegan diet? Or perhaps you’ve been on it for a couple of months now and you’re tired of the limited recipes that you know how to make.
While the vegan diet does not allow you to indulge in animal by-products, that doesn’t mean that your foods are gonna be boring. Uh-uh! There are plenty of ways to enjoy plant-based foods. You just have to do your homework and experiment.
To help you out, here are tasty vegan recipes that you should try:
Broccoli Cashew Fried Rice
Love eating rice? Then this recipe is definitely a must-try for you. Start off by preparing the sauce. With this, all you have to do is to combine tamari, water, brown rice syrup, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, red miso paste, red chili flakes, and grated ginger.
Saute the onion and broccoli for up to 10 minutes. Once done, add the rice and sauce. Top with cashews.
Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Chili
Pumpkin is a very healthy vegetable and one great vegan way to enjoy it is by making sweet and spicy pumpkin chili.
In a crockpot, add the oil, onion, garlic, and celery. Once they are soft enough, stir in all the seasonings and add the boiled pumpkin, as well as the rest of the ingredients.
As for the sour cream, put the cashews, water, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and salt in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate.
Dill Pickle French Fries
Missing the taste of dill pickle chips? These special French fries will certainly satisfy your cravings. First, create the dill mixture by mixing the oil, vinegar, herbs, and spices. Toss in the thinly sliced potatoes and coat evenly. Bake the fries for about 40 to 60 minutes, and make sure to turn them every 10 minutes.
Chickpea and Potato Curry
This Indian-inspired dish will leave you in awe, for sure. Using a large skillet, saute onion for 2 to 4 minutes before adding garlic, ginger, and dry seasonings. Add the tomatoes and transfer to a slow cooker. Add the stock, potato, and chickpeas too. Cover and cook for up to 8 hours.
Once the potato is tender, add the lime juice and sprinkle with cilantro. You can eat this dish with rice as well.
Crispy Tofu With Black Pepper Sauce
Tofu comes with lots of health benefits, and you can have it in a more exciting way by adding black pepper sauce. The secret to this recipe is to ensure that the tofu is well-cooked and crispy.
Other ingredients include soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, green onions, cornstarch, canola oil, sugar snap peas, ground pepper, garlic, and ginger root.
This vegetarian-friendly dish is an incredible way to add colors to your day. Begin making it by sauteing onion and chard stems before transferring into a slow cooker. Add the broth, garlic, kidney beans, carrots, pepper, squash, and garbanzo beans. Just like the curry, cook for up to 8 hours. Add the pasta and chard leaves.
