Vegan Meatball Subs

before yesterday Vegan Richa 

Vegan Meatball SubsSandwich fans will love these vegan meatball subs.  Not only are these lentil balls super easy to make, but also 100% plant-based, and sooo delicious!! Perfect in subs or over spaghetti. Soy-free, Nutfree.  Gluten-free option. If you’re a sandwich fan like me, you will LOVE this easy vegan meatball sub recipe.  Not only is it super simple to make it’s also 100 % plant-based, soy-free and and sooo delicious!! We have baked lentil meatballs covered with marinara and melty vegan cheese served over an oven-toasted bun that gets brushed with garlic butter! YUM! Also all baked in the same pan so fewer dishes! The vegan meatball subs are completely made from scratch and while many plant-based meatballs use tofu, these are soy-free. The flavor comes from lots of Italian herbs, spices, and nutritional yeast. While the ingredient list for this vegan meatball sub recipe might seem rather long, at first sight, most of the ingredients are really just spices. While you can pan-fry vegan meatballs, I prefer this baked version. And then all you need is a good marinara sauce and some Italian sandwich rolls or baguette. Let’s not forget a sprinkle of some vegan cheese and maybe some fresh parsley on top. The perfect weeknight dinner and let me tell you, kids LOVE these! These are perfect for game days and picnics. Serve the lentil balls with spaghetti and marinara for variation.

25 Best Vegan Iron Rich Recipes

January 18 2022 Vegan Richa 

25 Best Vegan Iron Rich RecipesLearn all about iron-rich vegan foods and how to incorporate them into a real-world, everyday meals for optimal absorption in this round-up of delicious iron-rich recipes.  Iron deficiency is quite a common nutrient deficiency in the world and affects vegans and omnivores alike. The good news is that you can get all the iron your body needs from Plants. When we think about iron, our minds wander to red meat etc. But there are lots of plant-based foods containing good amounts of this essential mineral as well. Iron Absorption Now, one thing is choosing iron-rich foods. The other thing is making sure your body can absorb that iron.  You can enhance your body’s absorption of iron by drinking citrus juice or eating or adding other foods rich in vitamin C at the same time that you eat high-iron foods. Another little trick: Use a cast-iron skillet. Cooking in a cast iron skillet can add significant amounts of iron to your food and into your body. It’s often really surprising foods that contain a lot of iron. Like Blackstrap molasses 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses has 3.6 mg. You can add molasses to vegan baked beans, any baked oatmeal recipe, or add some to salad dressings. Mix and match lentils and beans or beans and spinach to make an iron packed meal. If your readings are consistently low even after eating thoughtfully, consult your doctor about it. People can have absorption issues and will need supplementation even with an iron-rich diet. For high protein options, check this collection! Without further ado, here are some hearty vegan meals to try that combine iron-rich foods with ingredients that help to absorb it well. Best Vegan Recipes using Iron rich foods Lentils 1 cup of lentils has 6.6 mg iron. Paired with other iron sources such as spinach, tomatoes and that bit of lemon for the vitamin c that helps iron absorption and you are all set. Lentils are so easy to incorporate into your everyday like.

Vegan Chickpea Breakfast PinwheelsThese Chickpea Breakfast Rolls are perfect for your next brunch party!

Nut-free & gluten-free option. Coming at you with a full vegan breakfast platter! Chickpea Scramble Breakfast Pinwheels, Hashbrowns, and fruit! That alongside a cup of good coffee and the day is already pretty perfect. Think of these Chickpea Breakfast Pinwheels as a fun spin on a vegan chickpea scramble burrito or a wrap. But here, instead of just rolling it all up and biting right in, we slice the  breakfast wrap into little breakfast pinwheels. Chickpeas are mashed with some secret ingredients into a chickpea scramble salad which you can also serve on bread! We roll that up in a tortilla, slice it and pan fry for a crisp bite! These also make a great packed breakfast or snack. Once we have prepared our scramble filling, we just take some extra-large flour tortillas and add the chickpea scramble plus some greens. I went with spinach but you can use herbs, arugula, kale, whatever you want. Roll it up then slice it into rounds. These are delicious as they are but to take them to the next level of golden crunchy chickpea breakfast deliciousness, fry the pinwheels in the pan just a couple of minutes to brown them on both sides.

Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Spread

August 25 2021 Vegan Richa 

Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil SpreadThis ultimate vegan roasted vegetable sandwich is packed with delicious charred veggies and features a quick homemade sun-dried tomato basil spread! This easy veggie sandwich bursts with goodness at every layer.  Make it for lunch or bring to a picnic. Nutfree and Soyfree! Get ready for the ultimate Roasted Vegetable Sandwich – one that rivals anything you can get at the deli counter. Smoky, sweet, and tender grilled veggies with the perfect amount of charr sandwiched in toasted slices of bread with a little sun-dried tomato pesto spread! Everything is made from scratch here! YES, we take this grilled vegetable sandwich to the next level, by adding a homemade sundried tomato spread that comes together in the food processor in minutes. There’s plenty of room for experimentation in this vegan roasted vegetable sandwich recipe. I used grilled eggplant, zucchini, red onion, and bell peppers. If you want, add fennel, endive, or mushrooms. All of those would make fine vegetable substitutes. Hummus,  cashew cream, green vegan pesto, or white-bean puree can replace the sun-dried tomato spread. You can skip the spread altogether and top the veggie sandwich with vegan cheese or just add a bunch of fresh basil or mint leaves. However, I do love the spread in this and I think so will you.   MORE SANDWICHES TO TRY - Pulled Jackfruit BBQ Sandwiches - Chickpea Avocado Salad Sandwich - Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich - General Tsos Tofu Sandwich - Cauliflower Cheddar Pesto Sandwich Continue reading: Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil SpreadThe post Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Spread appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Savory Rhubarb Balsamic Sauce

June 30 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Savory Rhubarb Balsamic Sauce Catching the tail end of rhubarb season with this savory rhubarb balsamic sauce. I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything sweet with rhubarb this year, but it looked so beautiful piled up at our farmers market, that I bought some anyway. Enter this savory approach, where we stew rhubarb with red onion, ginger, balsamic, tamari, and maple syrup, until it turns saucy and glorious. The result is a punchy, tart, electric pink sauce that’s delicious on so many things. Here it’s pictured crowning grilled marinated tofu (highly recommend), but it would be equally as good served with tempeh, roasted vegetables, as a spread on sandwiches, and even stirred into pasta – anywhere, where a hit of acidity and tartness is welcome. Hope you’ll give it a try! Savory Rhubarb Balsamic Sauce   Print Serves: about 1½ cups Ingredients olive oil or avocado oil 1 small red onion - diced sea salt 1 lb rhubarb - trimmed, sliced into 1 pieces 1 piece ginger - finely grated 3 tablespoons maple syrup 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon tamari or coconut aminos 1 tablespoon vegan butter* Instructions Heat a medium pot over medium heat, add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom. Add the onion and a pinch of salt, saute for 7 minutes, until soft. Add the rhubarb, ginger, maple syrup, balsamic, and tamari. Bring to a gentle simmer and let stew for 10 minutes, or until the rhubarb is soft. Turn off the heat, add the butter, and stir it in. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Serve the sauce warm or at room temperature. Notes *Our favorite vegan butter is Miyokos. 3.5.3226 The post Savory Rhubarb Balsamic Sauce appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Green Chili Enchilada Soup

April 11 2021 Vegan Richa 

Green Chili Enchilada SoupThis one-pot Vegan Green Chile Enchilada Soup is vegan Mexican comfort food at its best! A hearty stew loaded with soy curls, corn and rice, then topped with all your favorite toppings for tons of flavor! This green chile enchilada soup recipe has everything you love about green enchiladas – the smoky heat of the green chiles, the Mexican spices, the creaminess and obviously the cheese. As this is a chicken-less enchilada soup, we add some soy curls in lieu of chicken as our protein. Otherwise, we rely on staple Mexican ingredients, such as rice, corn! I love the comforting creaminess the white beans add to this stew. Nutritional yeast adds the cheesy taste, but we also add some shredded cheese on top to finish this off. The secret to the creaminess of this vegan enchilada soup is a quick cashew cream which adds a nice richness to the soup and thickens it along with the rice. However, for those of you who are allergic, I listed a nut-free version in the tips section. I like finishing this Vegan Mexican soup off with some shredded cheese and some thinly sliced green chiles. Other great additions would be a fresh squeeze of lime, some sliced avocado, more vegan cheese shreds, and how about crushed tortilla chips? It will be hard to just have one bowl of this delicious vegan soup.

Mexican Egg Casserole

August 28 2021 Vegan Richa 

Mexican Egg CasseroleThis Vegan Mexican Egg Casserole gets a delicious Mexican flair with layers of roasted potatoes, onion and bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, vegan cheese, and fluffy tofu eggs seasoned with taco spice.  Your whole family will gobble this easy brunch recipe up! Nut-free + gluten-free option. I love me a good breakfast casserole and today we are adding a Mexican twist to it! This easy Vegan Mexican Casserole is my new favorite weekend brunch recipe. I guess you could call it Mexican Egg Casserole or Mexican Egg Bake. Essentially, it is vegan tofu eggs mixed with some pre-baked veggies, some bread, and some vegan cheese shreds then all baked in a casserole dish. It is almost like a vegan egg souffle dish packed with vegetables. You can also add in some cooked beans if you like to make it even more hearty. Now let’s talk about the seasonings because that is where we get the Mexican flavors in. Taco seasoning and chipotle chili powder are your best friends for whenever you want to add a pinch of fiesta to any dish. I make my own taco spice using this taco seasoning recipe but storebought is fine as well.  Making your own is quick and easy and takes mere minutes using common spices you probably already have, so it’s worth checking out the recipe. When made at home, you can also adjust the flavor and heat to preference. Back to the vegan Mexican casserole – we use a mix of pre-roasted veggies and veggies as add ons. Pre-roasting the potatoes, onion and bell peppers before adding to vegan tofu “egg” mixture is necessary to allow for them to cook. And we all love that aroma of roasted bell peppers and charred onions, don’t we? It makes this vegan egg casserole taste a bit like fajitas.

Vegan Mushroom Pepper Tostadillas – Tostadas meet Quesadilla

June 19 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Mushroom Pepper Tostadillas – Tostadas meet QuesadillaTostada meets quesadilla in these Mexican vegan mushroom pepper tostadillas ! Tortillas baked in the oven until crunchy then filled with a spicy mushroom & bell pepper mix and cheese and baked again to reach crispy melty cheesy vegan tostada perfection. If a Mexican version of a veggie and cheese sandwich sounds like your thing you will love these vegan mushroom tostadillas! They are like a quesadilla but baked instead of pan-fried – so more like a tostada. But I’ll explain the difference in a second and just call these tostadillas for now. Some might know these under Mexican Pizzas. You can call them whatever you want as long as you try them because these are delish. Admittedly, they are messy to eat! So not the best thing to serve for a first date - but every bite is a heavenly combination of crunchy – toasty and savory- cheesy that will make you fall in love with these double-decker vegan tostadas! What are tostadas? Tostada is Spanish and means toastedso tostada can refer to various Mexican /­­ Latinamerican dishes which are toasted or use a toasted ingredient. But to keep it simple - Mexican tostadas, (in diminutive also called Tostaditas) are typically wheat tortillas that are baked, deep-fried or toasted in a pan until crispy, then topped with whatever you like! Refried beans, grated cheese, chopped avocado and tomato, sliced lettuce, and salsa are the most common toppings. For this recipe, we adopt the tostada concept but make our vegan tostadas twice as delicious by adding a second layer of tortilla and cheese on top of the bottom layer and serving it with typical tostadas toppings. So a cross between quesadilla and tostadas.

The Salad Sandwich

June 3 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

The Salad Sandwich Beach sandwich season is finally here, and doesn’t everything taste better on the beach? Today’s recipe is a tribute to a sandwich you might find at a health food store or co-op that’s been around forever, has an impressive bulk section, an overwhelming assortment of natural bar soap, a tiny juice bar, and a soup/­­salad/­­sandwich takeout operation. This kind of sandwich usually comes on sprouted grain bread, slathered with hummus as the sauce of choice, most definitely has lots of alfalfa sprouts packed inside, and somehow always perfectly hits the spot. This is my version of that – basically a salad, deconstructed and served as a sandwich. It’s super flavorful, filled with all kinds of textures, and makes for such a refreshing, summer meal! The Salad Sandwich   Print Serves: 2 sandwiches Ingredients ½ garlic clove juice from ½ small lemon 1 small-medium carrot, grated 1 small-medium beet, grated ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar ½ teaspoon sugar sea salt 1 large avocado, pitted and peeled ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard freshly ground black pepper hummus 4 slices of sourdough or sprouted grain bread, toasted if needed 4-6 lettuce leaves sauerkraut or kimchi 1 small cucumber, sliced handful alfalfa sprouts or other sprouts/­­microgreens of choice Instructions Grate the garlic into a medium bowl using a microplane or a fine grater. Pour the lemon juice over the garlic and let sit while preparing the rest of the ingredients, for the garlic to mellow. Put the carrots and beets in another medium bowl, drizzle with the vinegar, sprinkle with sugar and salt to taste, mix to coat. Add the avocado to the bowl with the garlic and lemon juice, mash with a fork. Add the mustard, salt, and pepper to taste, mix to combine. Start assembling the sandwiches. Generously spread the hummus on all 4 bread slices. Distribute the mashed avocado between the two sandwiches, followed by the lettuce, sauerkraut/­­kimchi to taste, cucumber, carrots and beets, and sprouts. Close the sandwiches and enjoy right away, or wrap them up and keep in a cooler. This sandwich is best enjoyed within the first few hours of making it. 3.5.3226 The post The Salad Sandwich appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

The addition of tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms take these vegan cheese sandwiches to the next level. Vegan Spinach & Mozzarella Cheese Melts are here to curb all your comfort food cravings. Trust me, this is the vegan sandwich to end all your comfort food cravings. Creamy, filling, salty, crispy, buttery and so easy to whip up on any given weekday. I mean, the combination of melty vegan mozzarella cheese and sauteed spinach alone would be pretty amazing.  But I didn’t stop there. Natural plant-based umami bombs mushrooms and tomatoes are added to take these vegan cheese sandwiches to the next level of deliciousness! Just in case you’ve been wondering.  Yes, vegan cheese melts and grilled cheeses are a thing! How so? Homemade vegan mozzarella cream. You could also call it vegan cheese spread! That’s right. No need to buy expensive vegan slices at the store. We make our own spreadable mozzarella from simple ingredients. Mostly blended soaked cashew nuts, some garlic and miso for umami, and a touch of flour for getting that gorgeous thick yet silky texture upon heating the sauce.see recipe notes for gf and no nut options. What’s the difference between a melt and a grilled cheese anyway, you might ask. Well, grilled cheese is bread, some spread, and cheese. A melt is anything that has another item added to it. If you add things like spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes, it’s a melt. If you add avocados, it’s a melt. You get the idea. If you add anything other than bread, vegan cheese, and some kind of flavor-enhancing spread, a vegan grilled cheese turns into a melt.

Vegan Tofu Eggs in Purgatory

April 18 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Tofu Eggs in PurgatoryChange up your morning routine with this vegan eggs in purgatory recipe. Quick homemade tofu eggs simmered up in a fiery, garlicky, chunky tomato sauce! Serve with crusty bread for an amazing savory brunch or breakfast. Eggs in purgatory – the epitome of effortless meet delicious. Just like the non-vegan version, this Vegan Eggs in purgatory is indeed exquisitely easy to make. Homemade tofu eggs cooked in a rich garlicky tomato sauce – breakfast does not get better than this! And dont forget to grab some nice crusty slice of bread to dunk into it. Why is this dish called eggs in purgatory? The history of this recipe is rather unknown. The name apparently originates from catholicism, with the baked eggs representing souls and the tomato sauce surrounding them representing Purgatory. Alrighty. Whatever the history, it has become a brunch staple and this egg-less version made with tofu eggs might just be your new favorite savory breakfast. Is Shakshuka the same as eggs in purgatory? Not quite. Shakshuka is North African and Arab while eggs in Purgatory are the Italian cousin. Both recipes feature a flavorful slow-cooked  tomato sauce and softly cooked eggs (or in this case, tofu eggs) but the seasonings are different. Shakshuka uses turmeric, cumin and coriander to scent the tomato stew. The Italian version is all about that good olive oil and that garlic, along with a little basil and red-pepper flakes. Just like shakshuka, these vegan eggs in purgatory can be served for breakfast, or a savory brunch or a light lunch or dinner!  Really, whenever you are in a hurry to get a satisfying, full-flavored dish on the table quickly.
