The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook , by Jenn Sebestyen, emphasizes the limitless potential of plant-based cooking. The recipes are nutritious, easy-to-prepare, and mimic the look, taste, and texture of comfort-food favorites (youve got to check out the lentil Bolognese, butternut-squash mac and cheese, and meaty mushroom stew). The book, whose foreword is written by Sid Lerner, founder of the global Meatless Monday initiative and The Monday Campaigns, is based on the Meatless Monday philosophy of cutting out meat one day a week for your health and the health of the planet. And as its title suggest, The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook is designed for the whole family, because when kids are involved in the prepping and cooking process, they develop a greater appreciation, understanding, and respect for the food in front of them. The cookbook officially goes on sale November 19, but weve included a few recipe highlights to share with you. And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, these plant-based recipes might just be what you need to round out the holiday dinner table.     Garlicky White Bean Avocado Toast with BBQ Drizzle This recipe marries the best traits of avocado toast with the enticing aroma and flavor of cannellini beans slowly sautéed with fresh garlic and olive oil. The mixture is spooned on to the avocado-smeared toast and drizzled with a sweet and tangy homemade barbecue sauce. Pumpkin Maple-Glazed Penne with Roasted Fall Vegetables With butternut squash, carrots, parsnips, and Brussels sprouts, youre getting all the best that autumn has to offer. The subtle maple glaze adds a surprisingly subtle sweetness that pairs nicely with the fall vegetables. Meaty Mushroom Stew over Garlic Mashed Potatoes Theres nothing cozier than a hearty stew and some mashed potatoes. This recipe, which uses cremini and shitake mushrooms and a healthy dose of tamari, is an homage to umami. Ladle it over a scoop of mashed potatoes for some pure plant-based bliss. Creamy Vegetable Noodle Soup Its like a chicken potpie -- minus the chicken and the pie. No animal products are necessary for this smooth and sultry creamy vegetable noodle soup. Vegetable broth, almond milk, nutritional yeast, and a whole lot of seasonings and aromatics make this soup satisfying and delicious. Very Berry Quinoa Salad with Cinnamon Toasted Pecans This salad is light and fresh yet has plenty of protein from the quinoa and pecans. Fresh summer berries are little powerhouses of vitamins and are super kid-friendly. The toasted pecans take this dish to the next level. Rice and Bean Pan Grilled Burritos A burrito is engineered to include an entire meals worth of goodies wrapped in one, warm, fluffy package. Chocked full of smoky pinto beans, cilantro rice, lettuce, and an avocado green chile sauce, be prepared for requests for seconds. BBQ Chickpea Veggie Bowls Channeling the hot smoke of the barbecue pit, this BBQ chickpea veggie bowl is charred, sweet, and tangy with a satisfying crunch. The recipe calls for roasted broccoli, red peppers, onions, and chickpeas, but you can top your brown rice bowl with any variety of vegetables. Just dont forget to drizzle over some homemade sweet-and-spicy barbecue sauce. Sweet-and-Spicy BBQ Sauce The proper blend of sweet and heat, this BBQ sauce uses smoky chipotles, tart apple-cider vinegar, maple syrup, and a blend of spices. Squeeze a little bit any meatless Monday meal to take it to the next level. About the author: Jenn Sebestyen is the creator of VeggieInspired.com.

Vegan Cauliflower and Leek Pie with Onion Crust

November 3 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Vegan Cauliflower and Leek Pie with Onion Crust Way back in the day when I was first getting interested in vegetarian cooking, I came across Mollie Katzen’s recipe for a Cauliflower Cheese Pie, which completely blew my mind. Maybe you know the one I’m talking about? It’s such a classic. I even developed a little tribute recipe to that pie for our first cookbook. This vegan cauliflower and leek version is not as directly inspired by Katzen’s pie, but I still fondly kept it in mind while working on this recipe. Cooked cauliflower itself already tastes kind of cheesy to me, and when baked in a ‘cheesy’ but also totally plant-based sauce like in this recipe, it’s complete heaven. This pie also features caramelized leeks and an addictive, gluten-free onion-pecan crust that’s packed with flavor. It’s definitely a special enough savory pie for a holiday table, and we can’t wait to make it again for ours. Hope you’ll consider it as well! If you’ve been cooking plant-based for a while, you’ve probably heard that boiled potatoes and carrots make for a surprisingly cheesy sauce, when blended smooth with a bunch of aromatic pantry staples like nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and miso. In this recipe, we also add sun-dried tomatoes and smoked paprika to that kind of sauce, for an extra hint of umami and smokiness. We cut a whole head of cauliflower into florets and brown it, then cook it until soft on the stovetop, where we also caramelize some leeks. The cauliflower, leeks and the sauce then get cozied up into the quickly pre-baked onion pie crust and baked all together. The crust is just 5 ingredients, which is a true achievement for gluten-free baking :) This pie is delicious the day of baking, but the leftovers are also amazing (if not better), so you could definitely make it a day ahead and reheat. We will be making the whole thing on our instagram stories this afternoon, if you’d like to see the whole step-by-step process. Happy November! Wishing you all the warmth and coziness. Vegan Cauliflower and Leek Pie with Onion Crust   Print Serves: one 9-10 pie Ingredients for the crust neutral oil for oiling the pie dish 1¼ cup ground pecans (grinding directions in the recipe) ½ cup tapioca starch pinch sea salt 1 medium onion - roughly chopped 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds for the cheese sauce 1 large or 2 small white potatoes 1 medium carrot 2-3 sun dried tomato halves (soaked in hot water if not oil-packed/­­if very dry) or 1 tablespoon tomato paste ¼ cup non-dairy milk 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 tablespoon miso 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon smoked paprika pinch of sea salt for the cauliflower and leeks avocado oil or olive oil 2 large leeks, white and light green parts only - thinly sliced sea salt red pepper flakes - to taste 1 large head of cauliflower - cut into florets Instructions to make the crust Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C). Prepare a 9-10 pie dish by oiling it well. Place a generous 1 cup of pecans in a food processor and grind into a flour, taking care not to over-grind. Measure out 1¼ cups of the ground pecans and transfer that amount to a large mixing bowl. Save the rest of the ground pecans for a future recipe, or see note. Add the tapioca starch and salt to the bowl, mix to combine. Add the onion to the food processor and puree it. Its okay to have some small onion chunks, but the puree should be pretty uniform. Transfer the onions to a medium bowl, add the ground flax and mix to combine. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes, letting the flax bloom. Add the mixture to the bowl with the pecan flour and mix well to combine. Transfer the crust dough into the prepared pie dish and form an even pie crust, using a spoon and your hands. Place the crust in a freezer for 15 minutes to set. Cover the crust with parchment paper and baking beans, and blind bake for 15 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for an additional 5 minutes, until the base of the crust is dry to the touch. to make the cheese sauce Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Take care not to over-blend, so that the starch in the potatoes doesnt give the sauce a gluey texture. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. to prepare the vegetables and bake the pie Preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C). Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks, a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes and cook the leeks for 8-10 minutes, until they begin to soften. Turn the heat down to low, cover the pan and cook the leeks for another 10 minutes. Remove the lid, turn the heat back up to medium and cook for another 5 minutes, until the leeks are very soft and somewhat caramelized. Transfer the leeks to a bowl and set aside. Wipe the pan clean and heat another tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower florets along with a pinch of salt and mix to coat. Distribute the cauliflower in a single layer and let sear, undisturbed, for about 3 minutes, or until the undersides are nicely browned. Mix and keep cooking the cauliflower until soft throughout, for about 15 minutes. If your cauliflower is not softening, cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat down to medium-low, letting it steam until soft. Add the caramelized leeks and half of the cheese sauce to the pan and mix to combine. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to the pre-baked crust, carefully evening it out with a spoon. Add the rest of the sauce on top, evening it out. Cover the pie with parchment paper, foil, or a lid and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until slightly browned on top. Let cool well before slicing. Notes If you have any leftover ground pecans, you can make a quick cheesy sprinkle by mixing them with nutritional yeast, sea salt, and black pepper to taste. Sprinkle over this pie, pasta dishes, avocado toast, etc. 3.5.3226 The post Vegan Cauliflower and Leek Pie with Onion Crust appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

14 Restaurant Chains Offering Meatless Monday Options

October 21 2019 Meatless Monday 

14 Restaurant Chains Offering Meatless Monday OptionsFast-food and quick-service restaurants all across the country have recognized that customers want to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet. And were thrilled! Today, it is easier than ever to join the Meatless Monday movement. Last week, McDonalds announced their plan to test their own version of a meatless burger in collaboration with Beyond Meat. They join a growing list of chains offering some sort of plant-based alternative to their menu. And while plant-based burgers are getting all of the media attention, many national chain restaurants are serving a variety of meatless veg-forward options that deliver that same fast-food flavor using grains, legumes and fresh vegetables. For all of you looking to go meatless on Monday , weve compiled a list of the most popular national chain restaurants that are offering plant-based options on their menus.   Bareburger    View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Bareburger (@bareburger) on Oct 3, 2019 at 3:10pm PDT Bareburger  has your favorite, whether its the Beyond Burger, the Impossible Burger or a veggie packed black bean or sweet potato burger, they serve them all. The restaurant chain also serves plant-based eggs, tempeh bacon and the Beyond Bratwurst. Its pretty much plant-based heaven here.   Burger King   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Burger King (@burgerking) on Aug 22, 2019 at 7:34am PDT When the news first dropped that Burger King  launched its very own Impossible-Burger-Based Whopper , it became the largest chain to embrace plant-based meat - over 7,000 locations nationwide. And, at least according to this video taste test , self-proclaimed carnivores are just as wild about the plant-based option. The Impossible Whopper is served with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun.   Cheesecake Factory   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by The Cheesecake Factory (@cheesecakefactory) on Jun 18, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT Who would have thought that the Cheesecake Factory would be a pioneer in meatless dining ? Well, the chain has quite the selection of non-meat alternatives -- vegan Cobb salad, avocado toast, roasted artichokes, falafel salad, super antioxidant salad, and their version of the Impossible Burger (note: this one is not vegan because of the cheese and brioche bun, the latter is typically made with egg and butter).   Chopt Creative Salad Co.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Chopt Creative Salad Co. (@choptsalad) on Mar 3, 2019 at 9:08am PST Although the chain is more-or-less confined to the East Coast, Chopt has wooed diners looking for a more diverse array of meatless options . They offer a long list of preconceived salad concepts, but they also give you the ability to customize your own. Choose from one of their classic salad and grain bowl combinations, or just let your inner chef guide lead the way.   Del Taco   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Del Taco (@deltaco) on Sep 2, 2019 at 11:03am PDT An early adopter of Beyond Meats plant-based crumbles , Del Taco offers a comprehensive list of meatless options that includes burritos, tacos, bowls and even a crunchy tostada. Looking for something a little more traditional? Try a bean burrito or black bean bowl.   Dunkin   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Dunkin (@dunkin) on Jul 24, 2019 at 11:21am PDT Besides their newly launched Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich , Dunkin’ offers a number of vegetarian options including a veggie egg white wrap and an egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin.   Just Salad   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Just Salad (@justsalad) on Sep 12, 2019 at 8:00am PDT In September, Just Salad announced a partnership with Beyond Meat that brings Beyond Beef Meatballs to the menus of all 40 of their locations. But Just Salad is taking their meatless commitment one step further by removing all forms of beef from their menu . For Meatless Monday, try their Keto Zoodle Bowl, which contains Beyond Beef Meatballs, zucchini noodles, grape tomatoes, and roasted balsamic mushrooms.   Mellow Mushroom   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Mellow Mushroom (@mellowmushroom) on Dec 10, 2018 at 9:20am PST It’s plant-based pie paradise at Mellow Mushroom . Their meatless pizza options include dairy-free cheese, Follow Your Heart brand, and plant-based proteins, such as tofu and tempeh… plus every veggie topping you could possibly imagine. DIY your pie or opt for one of their curated specialty pizzas.   McDonalds   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by McDonalds Canada (@mcdonaldscanada) on Sep 26, 2019 at 3:29am PDT We bet you never thought youd see McDonalds on this list, but the Golden Arches have finally decided to try their hand at plant-based meat. McDonalds recently announced that they would be testing a P.L.T (plant, lettuce and tomato) in 28 locations in and around London, Ontario starting this week and lasting through the end of the year. Beyond Meat will be supplying the burger, but the sesame seed bun, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onions, mayo-style sauce, ketchup, mustard, and a slice of processed cheddar cheese will be classic McDonalds. As the worlds largest chain and one of the largest buyers of beef globally, the P.L.T. addition has enormous potential to positively impact the environment.   Panera Bread   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Panera Bread (@panerabread) on Oct 26, 2018 at 7:14am PDT Panera Bread has always been ahead of the pack when it comes to vegan and plant-based options, but theyve upped their game in recent years as the call for meatless options has gotten louder. Panera Bread has gone as far as launching an entire plant-based menu that lists a Greek Salad, a Modern Caprese Sandwich, a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich, a Ten Vegetable Soup, and a variety of smoothies.   QDOBA   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by QDOBA (@qdoba) on May 28, 2019 at 9:07am PDT Following in the footsteps of other major quick-service chains, QDOBA has launched new vegan and fajita bowls in conjunction with Impossible Foods . But even without the plant-based beef, its easy to go meatless at Qdoba; try one of their tacos, burritos, or bowls with black or pinto beans, brown or cilantro-lime rice, and grilled veggies. And you can always add guac or salsa on the side.   Red Robin   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (@redrobinburgers) on Oct 7, 2019 at 10:34am PDT Red Robin has two options for meatless burger seekers. Their veggie burger is a mixtape of culinary inspiration -- cool avocado, Swiss cheese, roasted garlic aioli, and tomato bruschetta sit atop an ancient-grain veggie patty. If youre looking for a more traditional burger experience, you can swap in the Impossible patty on to any traditional Red Robin burger.   Subway   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Beyond Meat (@beyondmeat) on Sep 5, 2019 at 2:26pm PDT Until recently, Subways plant-based options were limited to a simple veggie sandwich and salad. But theyve seriously upped their veg game with the addition of the Beyond Meat Meatless-Meatball Marinara - which boasts 24g of protein for a 6 sub. Leave off the cheese and pack it with veggies for an even more substantial plant-based lunch or dinner.   TGI Fridays   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by TGI Fridays (@tgifridays) on Oct 1, 2018 at 10:00am PDT At participating TGI Fridays , the Beyond Burger comes grilled and topped with white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and Fridays sauce. Of course, you can also order it in place of other burgers. Check out Meatless Mondays visit to TGI Fridays  as they launched their Beyond Burger.   Are you looking for more meatless dining options?

Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding

October 13 2019 Vegan Richa 

Tiramisu Chia Seed PuddingDecadent Vegan Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding! Coffee Chocolate Chia pudding layered with creamy vanilla layer topped with whipped coconut cream and cocoa powder. Glutenfree Soyfree Nutfree Dairyfree   Jump to Recipe  When you can have Tiramisu Chia seed pudding for breakfast, then why wouldn’t you! This easy chia pudding has 3 layers. The Chocolate Coffee layer has warmed non dairy milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, some coffee, maple syrup or other sweetener, and chia seeds. The warmed milk helps the chia seed absorb the liquid evenly and quickly and the pudding thickens within 15 mins! For the cream layer I use warmed non dairy milk, almond extract, a pinch of salt and lemon juice for the cheese flavor, maple syrup or other sweetener, and chia seeds. The almond extract adds a bit of amaretto flavor without the liquor. You can add the extract to either the chocolate layer or the cream layer. The lemon and salt add a slight cream cheese like flavor which works amazingly. You can omit them for a plain vanilla pudding layer as well. The third layer is some fluffy whipped coconut cream and a dusting of good cocoa! and done.Continue reading: Tiramisu Chia Seed PuddingThe post Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Meaty Mushroom Marinara Sauce

October 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

For a long time, I refused to eat tomato sauce. I ate my pasta plain and when I got pizza, I would carefully separate the cheese from the crust, scrape off all the sauce, and then reassemble each slice. Even now, I’m still picky about tomato sauce. My pasta sauce needs to be full of veggies. Full of them! The veggie to sauce ratio must be high! Unfortunately, a lot of store-bought pasta sauces skimp on the veggies. Mushroom sauces are my favorite because I like the meatiness that the mushrooms add to a pasta dish, but usually store-bought sauces either have a few token slices in each jar or tiny little diced mushrooms that you can’t even taste. Sad! So I decided to make my own mushroom marinara. Yes, it takes more time than opening up a jar, but this recipe makes a lot of sauce, so you can whip up a batch on the weekend, then freeze it in small portions to use throughout the week. Not only is this tastier than buying pasta sauce, it’s much cheaper too. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup

September 26 2019 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup By now, many of you have dug into your copy of Vegan Mac & Cheese and have begun making recipes from the book.  I hope you’ll share pics on social media so I can see what everyone is making! Today I’d like to share a recipe from Vegan Mac & Cheese from the final chapter of the book called “Fun with Mac & Cheese.”  This chapter is loaded with recipes for using up leftover mac & cheese (or you can whip up a quick batch just to use in the recipes if you don’t have leftovers.) Among the recipes in that chapter are: Cheesy Mac Mug, Mac UnCheese Omelet, Waffled Mac UnCheese, Mac UnCheese Balls (above), Cheesy Mac Muffins (below), Mac UnCheese Quesadillas, and Mac UnCheese Pizza.  There are even two dessert recipes: Sweet Noodle Kugel and Indian Vermicelli Pudding. The recipe I want to share is for Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup.  It’s ideal for the fall weather that is bound to be just around the corner!  I hope you enjoy it. BTW… If you haven’t gotten your copy of Vegan Mac & Cheese, I hope you will.  And if you already have the book, I hope you’ll do me a HUGE favor and write a brief review of the book on Amazon.  It only takes a minute and will really help spread the word.  THANK YOU!!! Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup Cheesy broccoli soup is a cold weather favorite in our house, so it was a no-brainer to try it made with leftover mac uncheese. The results were so good, this is now our go-to way to make it. We especially like that the broth isnt too thick (which it often is in cheesy soups). If you prefer a thicker broth, simply use less vegetable broth. To make this recipe without leftovers, I suggest using the quick and easy recipe for One-Pot Cheesy Mac from Vegan Mac & Cheese. - 1 tablespoon olive oil - 1 small yellow onion, minced - 2 garlic cloves, minced - 4 cups vegetable broth - 3 cups (weight varies) leftover or homemade mac uncheese - 11/­­2 cups Cheddary Sauce (recipe follows) - 1/­­2 cup plain unsweetened nondairy milk - 1/­­4 teaspoon smoked paprika - Salt, to taste - Ground black pepper, to taste - 2 cups steamed small broccoli florets - 1/­­4 cup Nut Parm (recipe follows) - In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. - Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. - Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes. - Stir in the mac uncheese and then add the Cheddary Sauce, stirring until thoroughly combined. - Add the milk and paprika and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until hot. - Stir in the broccoli and serve hot, sprinkled with the Nut Parm. Makes 4 to 6 servings   Cheddary Sauce - 1 cup unsalted raw cashews - 1 large russet potato, peeled and diced - 1 small carrot, chopped - 1/­­2 of a small yellow onion, chopped - 1 garlic clove, chopped - 1 teaspoon salt - 1/­­3 cup nutritional yeast, plus more as needed - 2 tablespoons vegan butter - 1 tablespoon rice vinegar - 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice - 11/­­2 teaspoons white miso paste - 1/­­2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard - 1/­­2 teaspoon onion powder - 1/­­2 teaspoon smoked paprika - 1/­­4 teaspoon ground turmeric - 1 cup plain unsweetened nondairy milk, or water - In a saucepan, combine the cashews, potato, carrot, onion, garlic, and salt with enough water to cover. Place the pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook until the vegetables are soft, 10 to 15 minutes. - Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked vegetables and cashews to a high-speed blender, reserving the cooking water. - Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides, as needed. Add as much of the reserved cooking water as needed to achieve the consistency you prefer for the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning, as needed. The sauce is now ready to use. Makes about 4 cups   Nut Parm - 1 cup unsalted blanched almonds, or unsalted raw cashews - 1/­­3 cup nutritional yeast - 1/­­2 teaspoon salt - 1/­­4 teaspoon onion powder Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture has a fine crumbly texture, stopping to scrape down the sides, as needed. Transfer to a shaker jar or other container with a tight lid. Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 11/­­3 cups   The post Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup appeared first on Robin Robertson.

Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew Mozzarella

Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew MozzarellaHomemade Vegan Margherita Pizza Recipe. 20 Minute Pizza crust, 5 minute Pizza sauce and a creamy cashew mozzarella cheese sauce. Vegan Soy-free Recipe. Gluten-free and nut-free options.  Jump to Recipe Sometimes you just want a ridiculously good pizza and the pizza restaurants are too far away, have shut down, or offer sub par vegan experience. Then you just go to the kitchen and whip up a super fresh delicious margherita pizza with gooey cashew cheese, all made from scratch. You can speed up the process by either making the components ahead of time or using store bought options. With a store bought pizza sauce, this pizza comes together in 20-30 mins and then you have to wait and fight over the fresh slices. The recipe is easily doubled! The pizza dough (its my easy 20 minute pizza dough) doesn’t need much kneading. Just bring the dough together and let it rise for 15 mins, then shape it using some flour. This dough is shaped easily as it does not have much gluten development (which develops with longer kneading) and hence is not the stretchy traditional pizza dough, so no struggling to roll it out! The pizza sauce is a few ingredients.  The cashew mozzarella cheese sauce is the sauce from my Mushroom Quesadilla. Just blend, and simmer to thicken, and use. No chill time to let it set. The final result we want is a cheesy melty topping, So keep the state as thick saucy to begin with! problem solved.

Savory Tomato and Onion Jam

September 4 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Savory Tomato and Onion Jam We’ve been making this lush, jammy spread on repeat lately. It’s been such a hit! This is a more low-maintenance version of a true jam that lasts a long time. This one comes together with more speed, doesn’t require too much sugar, and is meant to be enjoyed within a week or so (we think you won’t have a problem with this!). The reasonable amount the recipe makes reflects that as well. It’s no secret that things on toast make for the easiest, laziest, and most satisfying weeknight meals. This savory jam, spread over toast with a layer of cashew cheese (we’ve been loving Treeline) has been just that for us – a comforting weeknight lifesaver for a particularly busy time in the life. We hope it will be the same for you :) This jam looks like it’s all about the tomatoes, but it’s really about the marriage of slowly cooked, sweet red onion and the umami bomb that are late summer tomatoes. Both are cooked gently on the stovetop, melding their flavors and caramelizing until thick, glossy, and sweet. Punchy white wine vinegar and a little bit of coconut sugar help take all the flavors to their peak, but in the end it’s really all about these two magical vegetables. Here’s to late summer, its still vibrant produce, longer shadows, cooler evenings, and balmy days

The One Ingredient You Should Be Adding to All Your Plant-Based Recipes

November 4 2019 Meatless Monday 

The One Ingredient You Should Be Adding to All Your Plant-Based RecipesWere all familiar with the four basic tastes -- sweet, salty, sour, and bitter -- but umami, the mysterious fifth taste, remains an enigma. Umami is responsible for giving foods their deep, savory flavor. When used properly, umami adds a pleasant richness to plant-based meals, balances the natural bitterness of nutrient-dense vegetables, and simplifies cooking by reducing the need for salt and other flavor-enhancing ingredients. Umami can be found in everything from corn, tomatoes, and mushrooms to aged cheeses, nori and soy sauce. While its easy to find foods that contain umami, its not always as simple to coax that savory flavor out of them, which is why umami remains an underutilized culinary tool in many home kitchens across America. Thats why the team at Meatless Monday was so thrilled to work with Yondu Vegetable Umami to develop a free, downloadable e-cookbook complete with umami-rich plant-based recipes. When scrolling through the recipes, youll see the breadth and versatility of this one simple ingredient. But tasting is believing. For starters, try this super simple 3-Minute Veggie Soup , which includes aromatic leeks, sugary snap peas, cool slices of fennel, and a couple of tablespoons of vegetable umami. At only 54 calories per serving, its a nice, light way to open a meal. Catering to a crowd? Pulse together a creamy Minted Pea and Walnut Dip in a matter of minutes. Have some leftover cauliflower? A spattering of chili flakes and lemons zest, along with a drizzle of olive oil and umami will transform this simple vegetable into a Quick Roasted Cauliflower worthy of any restaurant menu. To celebrate the cookbook release, Yondu is giving away 50 free bottles of their vegetable umami. All you have to do is click the link HERE and sign up, but move quick -- its first come first serve. And if you missed the giveaway, Yondu is also offering a coupon code for 50% off your order! Use code: 50umamimeals.   Download your free copy of the e-cookbook HERE and click over to Amazon to purchase a bottle of Yondu, $8.99 (lasts quite a while).

Recipe | Loaded Veggie Nachos with Portabella Mushroom Meat

October 21 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Nachos: the staple food of teenage boys everywhere. It’s not really the type of thing you eat as a meal once you’ve reached adulthood. If someone asks you what you had for dinner last night and you answer “Nachos,” they’re bound to make some unkind assumptions about you. For example, they probably assume that you ate said nachos while sitting on a bean bag chair and using an overturned cardboard box as a table, a bottle of Mountain Dew Code Red by your side. They might also imagine that this meal took place in front of an episode of Cops. These are the things people think about you if you tell them you eat nachos for dinner. But nachos can be classy too! And you can make them without the neon orange cheese sauce and greasy taco meat. Loaded Veggie Nachos are nachos that you can eat as a meal without shame or guilt. Instead of being loaded with bad things, they’re loaded with (mostly) healthy and delicious things. On the subject of greasy taco meat, I replaced that with coarsely chopped portabella mushrooms. I’m really not big into meat analogues, so I hated using the word “meat” in the […]

7 Squash Recipes You Absolutely Need to Make This Fall

October 14 2019 Meatless Monday 

7 Squash Recipes You Absolutely Need to Make This FallSquash come in many different shapes and sizes, with each possessing their own unique composition, color, taste, and nutritional profile. Some are ideal for savory sides, salads, and appetizers (squash blossoms, chayote, pumpkin); others are destined for a long, slow roast in the oven (acorn, butternut, delicata), while a select few can even replace our favorite carbohydrate -- noodles (spaghetti squash, zucchini). But what these recipes all share in common is that they are the perfect accompaniment or star of your Meatless Monday menu. So whether youre a loyal Meatless Monday fan or a new adopter, weve compiled a list of some undeniably dynamite seasonal squash recipes that will have you running/­­driving/­­rollerblading to the nearest farmers market.     Spicy Spaghetti Squash Ramen with Homemade Vegan Kombu Dashi Swapping spaghetti squash for ramen noodles adds extra veggies to this flavorful dish, which also features crispy pan-fried tofu, caramelized onions, broccoli, mushrooms and fresh ginger.     Pomegranate-Smashed Butternut Squash Need something festive for the changing of the seasons? Pairing the tart pop of pomegranate seeds with the inherent creaminess of butternut squash makes for a dish fit for any holiday table.     Butternut Squash and Apple Veggie Burgers Your grill may be closed for the season, but that doesnt mean you cant enjoy a delicious meatless burger! These baked burgers combine the sweet and savory flavors of autumn produce for a comforting seasonal dish.     Golden Pepper and Parmesan Zucchini Pasta No gluten is required to create this luscious bowl of pasta. Strips of zucchini replace traditional noodles, while diced golden peppers are used instead of the classic canned tomato. The result is a burst of light and bright flavors.     Roasted Delicata Squash Boats Delicata squash is just as its name suggests; its delicate exterior makes for a tender and creamy bite that is both rustic and decadent. These roasted delicata squash boats are the perfect vehicle for tender mushrooms and hearty stalks of kale.       Maple Date Pumpkin Porridge Coziness in a bowl. Hot cereal is simmered with cinnamon, dates, and maple syrup for a combination of flavors that just scream autumn. Pumpkins earthiness is a great match for the porridge grain farina. This breakfast will undoubtedly keep you full until lunch.     Butternut Squash Spinach Alfredo If you think youre looking at an ooey gooey cheese sauce, look again!

Bell Pepper Bisque with Giant Croutons

October 4 2019 My New Roots 

Bell Pepper Bisque with Giant Croutons Hey friends! Im coming in hot, to drop this stellar soup recipe on you, while the weather is still fine and early fall produce is at its peak. The bell peppers in my region are bountiful and beautiful, and because I am the biggest sucker for roasted pepper anything, I came up with this dish to celebrate a seasonal favourite. But first, can we take a moment and please talk about how I just invented giant croutons? I think it might be my personal opportunity to break the internet. How is this not a thing yet?! Sure, I guess you could look at the cheese toast on French onion soup and say that is a giant crouton, but in my opinion, its merely an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich. Pfff. Not even close to this. My crouton is a cube of sourdough (important shape-distinction), kissed with garlicky oil and seared to toasty, golden perfection. The outsides are caramelized and crisp, while the center is fluffy, creamy and studded with nooks and crannies for the soup to slide in to. Guh. Too good to be true! Honestly guys, Im pretty proud of this. But I also need you to know that this soup is darn good too, even without the crouton. The recipe is loosely based on the North African Sun-dried Tomato Soup in my second cookbook, except I left out many of the warming spices, which felt prematurely winter-y. Its still t-shirt weather here, so the ginger and cinnamon had to go. Plus, I doubled the pepper count, added a teeny splash of balsamic (to round out the flavor), and made it bisque-y without the cream. Guess what I used?! Lentils!! Mic drop. But instead of bulking it up and putting the soup on legume-overload, I was conservative in my approach and just used half a cup. This made the soup rich and creamy without the cream, but in a very hush, hush way, so that you literally have no idea that theyre there. But their presence can be felt, because this soup is the real meal deal, not just a bowl of blended up veggies that will leave you hungry again in 20 minutes. With the bonus lentils, youre getting way more protein and fiber that youd normally expect from a pepper soup, and they will fill you up, and keep you energized for hours. This suddenly feels very infomercial-y. Did I mention there is a giant crouton? Moving on! Lets talk about peppers because they are in the nightshade family and that is a hot topic, if I ever heard one. Nightshade vegetables are a part of the Solanaceae family, and include tomatoes, peppers (and chilies), eggplant /­­ aubergine, and all potatoes except for sweet potatoes and yams. Originally cultivated in South America, nightshade vegetables were brought to Europe and Asia by Spanish explorers. Their name supposedly comes from the fact that they grow at night (as opposed to mushrooms, which grow in the shade). You may have heard rumors that Nightshade vegetables are toxic, that they can cause inflammation or that theyre linked to autoimmune disorders. While it is true that edible nightshades contain high levels of glycoalkaloids, specifically solanine, which at very high levels is toxic, it only seems to trigger reactions in individuals who are sensitive to it. Those with pre-existing inflammatory conditions may experience worsening of their symptoms when they consume these foods, but an elimination diet would be the only way to determine if nightshades are in fact, causing the issues. For people who do not suffer from chronic inflammatory ailments, enjoying ratatouille, a pizza, or a baked potato is likely just fine, and certainly not going to cause you to get these conditions. As far as autoimmunity is concerned, alkaloids from edible nightshades have been shown to irritate the gut, since solanine is effectively natural insecticide produced by this plant family. Gut irritation can contribute to intestinal permeability, which can set off an autoimmune reaction when proteins that should remain in the digestive tract leak into the bloodstream. The level of irritation depends on the amount consumed, and how sensitive the individual is. The highest amounts of solanine are found in green potatoes, and sprouted potatoes, but we should avoid eating those anyway.   Lets review: if you have an autoimmune disorder, leaky gut, or you exhibit symptoms of discomfort (digestive or otherwise) after consuming nightshades, try eliminating them from your diet for at least 6 weeks and see if you notice a difference. Then, re-introduce them one at a time and be aware of how you feel within a 24-hour period after eating them. If you dont have these issues, dont worry about it! There is absolutely no reason to limit your intake of these highly nutritious vegetables if they seem to do your body good. Bell peppers contain an astounding amount of vitamin C, high levels of A, and B6, with very good levels of folate, fiber, and vitamin E. They also provide flavonoids, and carotenoids. Remember to buy bell peppers that have fully ripened - anything other than the greens ones, which are typically unripe red, orange, yellow, or purple peppers. Their nutrient profile will be at its peak, and the natural sugars will be fully developed, easing their digestion. Let’s get to the recipe! If youre really pressed for time, skip roasting the peppers in the oven, and just dice them up, and add them to the pot along with the garlic in step 3. The overall flavour will be less rich, but still incredibly delicious. When Im in a crunch, Ill pull this move and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes. If you want to change things up, try orange or yellow peppers instead of the red ones. As far as sun-dried tomatoes go, I like organic, dried ones, instead of the oil-packed ones, but either would work here. With the canned tomatoes, go for whole, since they tend to be of higher quality than the diced ones. Lets talk bread. If you have access to a bakery where they make the real thing (sourdough), please use that. If you dont, find an unsliced loaf at your supermarket; bonus points if its made with wholegrain flour, organic, yeast-free, or all of the above. The bread should be cut into cubes with the serving bowl size in mind (youll want to see some of the soup around it), but if you have a huge bowl, go crazy and make that crouton as gargantuan as you want! And dont throw the offcuts away - I put them in the toaster and slathered them with hummus for my son. He was stoked about the oddly-shaped chunks.       Print recipe     Bell Pepper Bisque with Giant Croutons Makes 8 cups /­­ 2 litres /­­ Serves 4 Ingredients: 2 Tbsp. coconut oil or ghee, divided 2 medium yellow onions, diced 1/­­2 tsp. fine sea salt 3 large garlic cloves, minced 2 tsp. ground cumin 2 tsp. ground coriander 1/­­2 – 1 tsp. hot smoked paprika (depending on how spicy you like it) 4 large red bell peppers (stems, seeds, and ribs removed) 5 - 7 cups /­­ 1 1/­­4 – 1 3/­­4 liters vegetable broth 1 14.5-oz. /­­ 400ml can whole tomatoes 1/­­2 cup /­­ 45g sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped 1/­­2 cup /­­ 100g dried red lentils, soaked for 1 – 8 hours, if possible 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar Directions: 1. If you have time, soak the lentils in water overnight, or for up to 8 hours. Drain and rinse very well. If youre starting from dried, that is okay too, just give them a very good wash and drain before using. 2. Preheat oven to 400°F /­­ 200°C. Prepare the peppers by cutting each of them in half, scooping out the seeds, and rubbing with a little coconut oil. Place peppers cut-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Roast for 25-30 minutes until the skins are totally wrinkled and charred in places. 3. In a large stockpot, melt the remaining coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onions and salt and stir to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and begin to slightly caramelize, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, coriander, and smoked paprika, and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add a little broth to the pot if the mixture becomes dry. 4. Add the whole tomatoes and their juices along with the sun-dried tomatoes, lentils, and the rest of the broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and break up the whole tomatoes with your spoon. Simmer, covered for 15 minutes. Stir once or twice during cooking to prevent sticking. 5. The peppers should be done by now, so take them out of the oven, transfer all of them to a bowl with a lid or plate over the opening, making sure there are no gaps (this technique steams the peppers so that the skins will just slip right off, without using plastic wrap). Once cool enough to handle, remove the skins from the peppers, and place the peeled peppers in a blender. 6. Remove the soup from the heat and take off the lid to let cool just for a minute. Transfer to the blender, and blend on high until completely smooth. Add balsamic vinegar, and broth or water to thin, until your desired consistency is reached. Season to taste. Transfer back to the pot and keep warm. 7. Make the croutons (recipe below). 8. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, top with fresh herbs, edible flowers, a drizzle of good olive oil, and of course place one giant crouton in the middle of each bowl. Enjoy! Giant Croutons Make as many as you want! Ingredients: 1 loaf of good bread (wholegrain sourdough is preferred) 2 Tbsp. expeller-pressed coconut oil (the unscented kind - very important!) or ghee, divided 1 clove of garlic, finely minced flaky salt, to taste Directions: 1. Cut the bread into 2 1/­­2 (6cm) slices - mine weighed 1.25 oz /­­ 35g per piece. Cut off the edges and make a cube (save the off-cuts for snacks). 2. Spread a little coconut oil on each side. 3. Heat remaining coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for a few minutes, just until the garlic is starting to turn golden. 4. Lower the heat to medium-low, and add the bread cube. Rub each side in the oil to coat with some of the garlic and sprinkle lightly with salt. Let cook on each of the six sides for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Remove from heat and enjoy immediately. I hope that wherever you are on this earth, youre enjoying the seasons shifting and embracing the changes that come with that. When I started writing this post, it was a very hot day, and now, just 48 hours later, I can feel a significant shift in temperature and weather. Here we go, fall! Im happy youre here. Big thanks to my friends at Foragers Farms for letting me crash the greenhouse at the crack of dawn to get these pics. Love to all, happy fall!

Recipe | Pear & Sharp Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich

September 23 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Simple fall lunches--this is what I am in desperate need of right now. I’ve gotten bored of just about every single one of my go-to lunchtime options, so when noon rolls around, I find myself standing in front of the pantry, contemplating what I can do with lentils or jasmine rice. And then I just give up and have a handful of potato chips and some olives. (This is the point where you mentally insert a sad trombone sound.) Even though I blog about cooking, I really don’t like making big elaborate lunches. When I made pasta for myself two weeks ago, that was kind of a huge deal to me. I made pasta--for lunch! So I’ve been seeking out some easy, seasonal lunch ideas and I just happened to find a good one on Panini Happy: Granola-Crusted Pear and Almond Butter Panini. Being lazy about lunches, I didn’t do the granola-crusting (and I know I’m missing out, I’m sure of it!), but the pear and almond butter on a sandwich was delicious! One of my favorite fall snacks is pear slices topped with a little bit of cheese, so I decided that this would make a good sandwich too. […]

Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub

September 20 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

As of September 5th, the Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub has been available for a limited time only in more than 600 select locations in the U.S. Participating restaurant locations include Jackson, Mississippi; South Bend-Elkhart, Indiana; Fresno-Visalia, California; Louisville, Kentucky; and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub will make its way to select Canada locations on September 20th. The Beyond Meat team collaborated to make the meatballs exclusively for Subway. The six-inch toasted subs are made with Beyond Meats protein-packed meatballs and topped with provolone cheese, marinara sauce and grated Parmesan cheese. According to Subway’s website, the original meatball marinara sub has 20 grams of protein (using beef). With Beyond, it’ll weigh in at 24 grams of protein per sub. How to order it? Well, you can always request it on standard Italian or 9-grain wheat and forego the provolone and Parmesan to make it vegan. As for gluten-free or soy-free options, unfortunately it won’t be possible, as the meatballs were made with a special proprietary blend of breadcrumbs by Subway, which includes soybean oil. Subway appeals to so many fans because we truly offer something for everyone. Our guests want to feel good about what they eat and they […] The post Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub appeared first on HappyCow Blog.

Plant-Based Power Chef Charity Morgan on Fueling The Tennessee Titans with Plants

September 16 2019 Meatless Monday 

Plant-Based Power Chef Charity Morgan on Fueling The Tennessee Titans with PlantsThere are plenty of reasons to eat more plant-based foods. For NFL linebacker Derrick Morgan, who most recently played on the Tennessee Titans, the reason was clear: He wanted to become an even better athlete. [Derrick] wanted to have a competitive edge for training on and off the field, Morgans wife, Chef Charity Morgan , said. After doing extensive research on using plant-based foods as fuel, Derrick decided to fully commit to plant-based eating — cold turkey — back in 2017. His wife Charity and two young kids, soon followed his lead. Now, the whole Morgan clan eats all plant-based, all the time. But this is hardly where their plant-based story ends. The Morgans new approach to eating soon made its way onto the football field. Charity, a Le Cordon Bleu-trained professional chef, gradually transitioned her cooking style to plant-based and, with that, began to serve meals to other Tennessee Titans. For me, it was just re-educating the guys about what food looks like. Once they realized they could have lasagna, enchiladas and mac and cheese in plant-based form, they were so stoked , she said. Charity cooks up plant-based dishes for many of the players, whove found that the meals leave them energized and ready to play. A lot of them tell me they feel faster on the field, they feel more energetic , Charity said of the players, adding that many said they didnt feel sluggish like they normally do after a big lunch.  Chef Charitys recipes are always evolving, but there are a few staples she said the players request on the reg. Her plant-based truffle mac and cheese is by far the players most beloved recipe, and her tacos, which she makes with soyrizo, black beans, bell peppers, onion and garlic are another favorite.  While there is a wealth of information around plant-based eating, Chef Charity said protein is often the players first concern when they sign up for her meals. She said being an educator comes as part of her job as a chef: Once she breaks down the beneficial nutrients in foods like vegetables, lentils and legumes, she said the players worries are easily quelled. The chef labels all of the players meals clearly so they know what to expect before digging in, and every dish is protein-packed. Her Pro-Bowl, a mix of lentils, chickpeas, hemp seeds, kale and spinach, is incredibly protein-dense.  While many of the Titans have incorporated plant-based eating into their lives (and their training), not all have committed as wholly as the Morgan family has — and, as Chef Charity put it, thats completely OK. I tell people all the time, even if you start with Meatless Monday, thats great. I encourage that , she said, adding that Meatless Monday often ends up being a gateway to even more plant-based eating. People realize they create their own [unnecessary] barriers, but once they try [to eat a little less meat], they start to realize that its really not so difficult. We create our own roadblocks that dont really exist in reality, she said.  So while conventional wisdom may tell us that professional football players need a meat-heavy diet to perform their best, the real proof is in the Titans.  Learn more about plant-based athletes from the experts - check out Game Changers the movie . A UFC fighter discovers an elite group of athletes proving everything he’d been taught about protein was a lie . This documentary breaks down the stereotypes, myths and realities of protein and strength around plant-based eating for professional athletes. Check it out in your local theaters.
