Potato Quinoa Waffles ( Aloo Tikki Waffles)

April 15 2021 Vegan Richa 

Potato Quinoa Waffles ( Aloo Tikki Waffles)These easy Indian Spiced Vegan Potato Quinoa Waffles are inspired by my favorite Indian potato snack, Aloo Tikki! The quinoa adds nutrition and texture making them a savory brunch treat that is wonderfully filling! Vegan Gluten-free Nutfree Soyfree I love me a good waffles recipe! No better self-care activity than digging into a pile of hot crispy waffles topped with all kinds of nuts and drizzles. But recently, I’ve been on a savory kick, and YES luckily the waffle maker is an excellent tool for not only making delicious sweet dessert waffles but it can be used for delicious savory snacks too. Like these incredible Potato Quinoa Waffles. They are crispy on the outside and taste a bit like potato pancakes but we also add some cooked quinoa to these, so they are more filling and nutritious! And would you just look at that crisp, golden crust that only a piping hot waffle maker creates? Gorgeous! I also call them Aloo Tikki Waffles – Aloo Tikki are Indian Potato Patties served as a snack and while there is no quinoa added to Indian potato patties, we do sneak in all those gorgeous Indian spices like cumin, green chiles, ginger and coriander. Also try my Pizza Waffles and Chickpea flour veggie waffles for savory spins Now, most quinoa waffles are made using quinoa flour. These are made using quinoa which we cook along with the potatoes!  Of course, if you happen to have leftover cooked quinoa and potatoes, you can use those!

Sheet Pan Ratatouille with PolentaThis bright and colorful Baked Sheet Pan Ratatouille is a modern twist on the classic French chunky summer vegetable stew, rich with olive oil and fragrant with plenty of herbs.

This sheet pan Ratatouille is indeed the perfect recipe to serve all those beautiful farmers’ market veggies that are popping up during the warm months!

Its so easy, its healthy and it’s versatile. You can make a big batch of Baked Ratatouille on a Sunday, then serve it up in different ways during the workweek!

This simple casserole version takes only 15 minutes of prep work before the pan goes into the oven to roast.

Then it gets all tossed with olive oil,  herbs, salt, and pepper and then roasted in the oven for about 45 minutes during which your house will start to smell incredible. Once done, you can either dig in right away or store your ratatouille in the fridge for the workweek. Or freeze it!

Savory Chickpea Flour Waffles – Pakora Waffles

February 2 2021 Vegan Richa 

Savory Chickpea Flour Waffles – Pakora WafflesPakora Waffles! Chickpea Flour Waffles are a fun savory vegan breakfast treat or snack! Pakora’s are a staple at most Indian restaurants and now you can have them for breakfast – unfried! Gluten-free too! So it was definitely time for me to come up with another creative savory use for a waffle iron. Enter Pakora Waffles. What are Pakoras? Pakora is a spiced fritter originating from the Indian subcontinent, often sold by street vendors and consisting of vegetables such as potatoes and onions, coated in spiced gram flour and then deep-fried. These waffles are a fun play on the popular Indian snack. Light crispy waffles made with chickpea flour with plenty of veggie goodness and spices in them! Is gram flour the same as chickpea flour? Besan (gram flour) and Chickpea flour are not the same! Besan or gram flour is a flour of chana dal or split brown chickpeas. Chickpea flour or garbanzo flour is ground up white chickpeas. Similar flavors, but not the same flour. Besan is Brown Chickpea flour, is finer and milder flavor. Garbanzo bean flour (white Chickpea flour) is coarse, dryer, more bitter flavored and needs more moisture. Read this blog post for differences and where to use which flour. MORE CHICKPEA FLOUR RECIPES - Chickpea flour tofu  - firmer and sturdier with chickpea flour - Omelet with Chickpea flour  - Chickpea flour frittata - no soy - Socca is better with chickpea flour. - My Gluten-free Naan is better with chickpea flour - Breakfast Scramble with Chickpea Flour - Gluten-free flatbread - Cheese slices! no nuts.

Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes)

January 6 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Aloo Palak is a versatile side dish that is a great complement to any meal. Aloo (potatoes) and Palak (spinach) are two vegetables I always have in my kitchen. Potatoes we all know are used in so many ways and have endless recipes. I also use spinach in many dishes. I thought I had done this recipe a long time ago, but today I made this dish for my family after some time and they enjoyed it very much and asked me if I have done this video recipe. I was looking on my website and realized I have not done this recipe yet. This is a common recipe, but this is my version of Aloo Palak. Adding fenugreek seeds and besan (gram flour) kicks off the flavor to the dish. For me and Alex, this is a comfort dish. This recipe is also vegan and gluten free. I serve this as a side dish, or I enjoy rolling it in a Roti or Paratha to make a to-go lunch. Alex especially enjoys making grilled cheese sandwiches filled with leftover Aloo Palak. I have done many recipes for spinach: Palak Paneer, Saag, Spinach Crisps, Chole Palak, Palak Puri This recipe will serve 4. Course Main Course Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 30 minutes Servings 4 people Ingredients2 cup potatoes cut into small pieces I used 2 medium size potatoes 4 cup spinach finely chopped, approx. 8oz 1/­­2 cup tomato finely chopped 4 Tbsp oil 1 tsp cumin seed jeera 1/­­4 tsp fenugreek seeds methi optional 1 Tbsp besan gram flour 1 Tbsp coriander powder dhania 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder adjust to taste 1/­­4 tsp turmeric haldi 1 tsp salt 1/­­2 tsp mango powder amchoor InstructionsHeat the oil in a saucepan. The oil should be moderately hot. Add the cumin seeds as they crack add besan, and fenugreek seeds. Stir for about one minute, besan will become aromatic and will be light golden brown. Next add tomato, coriander, red chili powder, and turmeric. Stir-fry spice mix until spice mix starts leaving the oil. It should take about 2 minutes. Add potatoes, spinach, and 1/­­2 cup of water, cover the pan. Let it cook over medium heat. The potatoes should be very tender but not mushy and should be covered with spinach. NotesDo stir in between besan can stick to the bottom of the pan. I did stir once in between. If needed, add a little more water. Aloo Palak should not be very dry, it should be moist. Add mango powder and stir, turn off the heat. Aloo Palak is ready. The post Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo & Tofu Ricotta

December 10 2020 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo & Tofu RicottaVegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo is the best comfort food casserole to feed a big crowd! Filled with spinach and creamy tofu “ricotta,” this stuffed shells recipe is an all-time family favorite. Use Pumpkin or other winter squash. Coming at you with a classic Italian comfort food classic with a seasonal twist! Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash! These vegan butternut squash stuffed shells are bursting with creamy dairy-free tofu ricotta and spinach and baked in a velvety smooth and cheesy butternut squash alfredo sauce. Perfect for holiday gatherings, family dinners, date night…really any occasion that begs for some serious vegan comfort food! Let’s talk about the tofu ricotta. I’m constantly blown away by the wonders of tofu. If you are skeptical whether this is not gonna end up being all weird and tasteless – never fear! The tofu combined with nutritional yeast, almond flour, Italian seasonings, lemon and tofu makes for the perfect ricotta substitute. A bit tangy, a bit cheesy but very mild in taste. Some spinach in it makes the filling incredibly delicious. And less or more spinach to preference. The butternut alfredo is adapted from my creamy butternut carbonara. That sauce is so delicious and works amazingly here. Use pumpkin or other winter squash if you like! Stuffed Shells usually end up taking long prep times because you pre-cook the pasta and the sauce. In this recipe I am using uncooked pasta! that gets cooked with the sauce while baking just like my baked rigatoni recipe. No dealing with large pots of hot water! By the way, this stuffed shells recipe would also work for making cannelloni – simply stuff the cannelloni pasta with the ricotta filling as you would for the shells and bake in the alfredo sauce. Baking time might vary slightly. MORE VEGAN PASTA RECIPES FROM THE BLOG: - Vegan Mushroom Fettucine Alfredo - Cajun Cauliflower Pasta  - Vegan Lemon Asparagus Pasta - Roasted Red Bell Pepper Chickpea Pasta  - Cauliflower Parmesan Pasta Bake  - Vegan Sundried Tomato Pasta You can also make these the traditional way by cooking the pasta first.

Pumpkin Chickpea Curry

November 13 2020 Vegan Richa 

Pumpkin Chickpea CurryThis easy one-pot pumpkin curry is the perfect fall comfort food for the cold season! A fragrant Indian inspired veggie curry made featuring warming spices, fresh veggies, chickpeas. Pumpkin purée in the curry sauce makes it so creamy! Perfect for weeknights! Jump to Recipe We’re in the midst of squash/­­pumpkin season and while I love using pumpkin puree for all by bakes and cakes, I do also enjoy our favorite fall baking ingredient in savory dishes. During the cozy season, I love adding canned pumpkin puree to soups, curries, as a natural thicking agent and to add that gorgeous orange color. I mean look at those bowls of pumpkin curry! Don’t you want to hug them? Canned pumpkin purée and creamy oat milk, heavily seasoned with Indian spices make a sweet and satisfying curry sauce for the chickpea curry. Its a rich, creamy fall-centric curry that you can eat on its own, or serve over steamed rice, quinoa or couscous. If you want to incorporate different vegetables, go ahead. I love to stir in some spinach, but baby kale or sliced green beans add the same color effect. Just add your leafy green during the last few minutes of cooking, letting them soften in the sauce. As with any curry, the key to this dish is building layers of flavor! In this pumpkin chickpea curry we begin with browning some ground spices in hot oil to kick-start those Indian aromatics then add some onions, garlic and ginger. You can use any other squash purée or mash instead of pumpkin. Your kitchen will already smell spectacular by now, and all thats left to do is stir in some oat milk, pumpkin puree, chickpeas, and veggies of your choosing. Now simmer until the veggies are cooked. Season with a squeeze of lime, and your curry is served! I love this with rice but you can opt for any other grain or cauliflower rice.

12 Road Trip-Worthy Snacks

September 25 2020 Vegetarian Times 

If the walls of your home feel like theyre closing in, youre not alone. Two-thirds of Americans (67%) say that staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic has made them want to take a vacation, according to a survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Shell.  But with so many travel restrictions and concerns about health safety while flying, its no wonder that many people trying to scratch their travel itch are turning to good, old fashioned road trips -- 36% of Americans say that they are more likely to take a road trip now than they were prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and 61% of Americans are now more interested in taking a local road trip to explore areas close to home.  Before you hit the open road, theres plenty to do: packing, creating a playlist that captures the vibe of your destination, planning your itinerary and, of course, stocking up on car-friendly snacks. While vacation may seem like the perfect excuse to indulge in junk food, those snacks could leave you feeling lethargic and bloated during a time when youd much rather feel energetic and carefree.  Thankfully, theres no shortage of vegan-friendly snacks that are mess-free, nutritious, and tasty. Weve rounded up some of our favorites: Quinn Grain-Free Pretzel Chips Nothing beats the crunch of a pretzel -- and everyone living a gluten-free lifestyle knows that grain-free pretzel replacements typically leave a lot to be desired.

A serving size of these vegan goodies offers 5 grams of plant protein and less sugar than an apple. The whole line is vegetarian, including the SkinnyDipped Cashews in Dark Chocolate Cocoa and Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel. Shop now Undressed Salad Bar Salads arent exactly considered a portable snack, which is why Anne Klassman founded Undressed to throw in her purse or glove compartment -- its a salad in a bar form, with 5-7 grams of protein from its toasted almond base and a full serving of vegetables.

Jalape?o Popper Chickpea Salad SandwichThis Jalapeno Popper Chickpea Salad Sandwich recipe combines two favorites into a new exciting lunch sandwich! Protein-rich chickpeas and veggies tossed with a creamy tofu dip, with a bit of a kick thanks to both pickled and fresh jalapenos!  Jump to Recipe I love Jalape?o Popper anything: Apart from classic Vegan Jalape?o Poppers  I already have Jalape?o Popper Dip, Jalapeno Popper Pizza, and this Tempeh Scramble Wrap recipe with Jalape?o Popper Dip. So yes, I have a thing for Jalape?o Poppers. Here’s my new favorite spin on this crowd-pleasing appetizer!

The whole flavor of jalape?o popper in a simple sandwich that is healthy and packed with plant-based protein. I like to use both fresh and pickled jalapeno peppers for the chickpea salad recipe for double the jalapeno flavor but you can add a bit less if you cannot handle a lot of heat.Continue reading: Jalape?o Popper Chickpea Salad SandwichThe post Jalape?o Popper Chickpea Salad Sandwich appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Easy Scalloped Potatoes (Vegan Hash Browns Casserole)

December 13 2020 FatFree Vegan Kitchen  

Easy Scalloped Potatoes (Vegan Hash Browns Casserole) These easy scalloped potatoes combine the creaminess of the classic side dish with the ease of frozen hash browns. You don’t even have to thaw them out! I thought I was finished writing about scalloped potatoes. I posted my first scalloped potatoes recipe in my second month of blogging, way back in 2006. Then ten years later I updated that recipe with a “cleaner” recipe that used chickpeas instead of cornstarch for thickening. Well, I hadn’t anticipated that Julie from the 100% Pure McDougall Facebook group would come up with a brilliant innovation on the original recipe. She skipped right past the slicing and boiling of two pounds of potatoes and simply poured the sauce over frozen hash browns. (...)

10 Dietitians Share Their Tips to Add More Plant-Protein to Your Diet

November 19 2020 Vegetarian Times 

With the new year just weeks away, the media is honing in on the top nutrition trends we can expect to see in 2021, and to no surprise increasing plant-protein remains at the top. Whether youre eating more plant-based for sustainability, health, or just because, rest assured there are a variety of whole food options you can choose from to meet your protein needs. But, before you head straight into the freezer department at your local grocer to pick up the latest faux meat product, lets take a look at 10 whole food sources of plant-based protein you may just want to toss into your cart instead! Reader beware, you may end up saving a few bucks once you realize how convenient and affordable many of these options are. Lentils Just one cup of cooked lentils provides nearly 18 grams of plant-protein and 16 grams of fiber for just 225 calories. Lentils also contain many important nutrients, like iron, potassium, zinc and choline (a nutrient that 90% of Americans arent getting enough of!) Plus, theyre budget-friendly with a 16-ounce bag of dried lentils coming in at just $2.99.  Registered Dietitian Kim Rose of www.kimrosedietitian.com recommends making a pot of seasoned lentils on the weekends. Divide them into individual 1 cup servings, and then add them to different meals throughout the week!  Youll find me turning lentils into meatballs, or for a really quick fix, adding a little bar-b-que sauce to them to make tasty, vegan sloppy joes. Hummus This plant-based spread can be made from a variety of beans and legumes, not just the traditional garbanzo bean you may think! Depending on the bean used, the protein content will vary slightly, but a standard 1/­­4 cup serving (or about 70 grams by weight) has roughly 6 grams of protein for just 180 calories. Plus, it often packs heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acids that help keep you fuller for longer too! Brynn McDowell, Registered Dietitian and cookbook author of The Mediterranean Diet Made Easy recommends using hummus in place of mayo on sandwiches or spreading it on bagels or toast! She suggests thinning it out and using it as a creamy salad dressing to add more plant-based protein to meals. Pistachios Pistachios are a good source of plant-based protein with a 1-ounce serving of the nut (shelled) providing 6 grams of it! Plus, they pack dietary fiber, potassium, and antioxidants that help keep your body in tip-top shape. While the shelled variety tends to be a tad pricier, you can still pick up a 10-ounce in-shell bag for about $5.49 at most markets. Lauren Manaker, Registered Dietitian, and author of Fueling Male Fertility, recommends to use shelled pistachios as a salad topped in place of grilled chicken or shrimp. The plant-based protein boost that also gives you fiber and healthy fats for staying power. You can also toss pistachios in trail mixes and in oatmeal as a topping for added nutrition and crunch! Related: Healthy Late-Night Snacks Chickpeas One of the most common forms of plant-based protein on the market is the good ole chickpea (aka, the garbanzo bean!) With nearly 7.5 grams of protein, 6.5 grams of fiber, and 3.7 mg of iron in just 1/­­2 cup serving of cooked chickpeas, its a great way to increase the total nutrient density of your diet. The best part: a pound of chickpeas (dried) often comes in at less than $3.00! NYC-based Registered Dietitian, Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD, is a big fan of adding chickpeas to both meals and snacks! From grain bowls to veggie burgers, or roasted as a protein-filled snack, chickpeas offer a convenient and affordable plant-based protein to nearly every diet. Edamame (Soybeans) Edamame is the immature form of the soybean that is often eaten from the shell (or shelled) alongside traditional Asian dishes. Regardless of the form of soybean you eat, they can easily be incorporated into a balanced diet with two servings being a reasonable goal for adults. A half-cup of shelled edamame packs nearly 9.5 grams of plant-based protein and 4 grams of fiber, as well as iron, potassium, folate, and choline! Sarah Koszyk, Sports Nutritionist and author of 25 Anti-Aging Smoothies for Revitalizing, Glowing Skin, recommends pureeing edamame in a hummus, dip, or pesto. Spread the edamame purees on a sandwich or wrap, add it to a burrito, or toss it with a salad, pasta, or rice dish. If youre looking to venture into the other forms of soybeans (like tofu), Registered Dietitian Sylvia Klinger of Hispanic Food Communications suggests blending silken tofu with oil, spices and herbs makes for a delicious high protein dressing, or adding a soy-based curd to pancakes to boost the protein there as well! Tempeh Tempeh is a fermented product made from soybeans in addition to some whole grains, seasonings and other flavorings. A 4-ounce serving of this soy-based protein packs nearly 20 grams of protein, in addition to a host of nutrition benefits. For starters, tempeh is filled with nutrients like manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins in addition to its role as a probiotic. Jenna Braddock, Florida based at MakeHealthyEasy.com recommends spending a little bit of time prepping it to make the perfect dish! Braddock suggests crumbling the tempeh, then marinating it and finishing with a sear in a hot pan to add instant protein to salads, wraps, bowls and tacos. Pill Nuts Pronounced peel-y, this nut is native to the pili tree often found in Northern Australia and the Philippines. While lower in protein comparatively speaking per serving size (a 1/­­4 cup serving provides 3 grams in comparison to some of the other nuts), it packs a nutritional punch in that it contains essential amino acids the human body needs. This nut is harder to find at local markets, and you will need to likely shop online and be willing to spend about $16.99 for a one-pound bag. Maya Feller, nationally recognized nutrition expert and author of The Southern Comfort Food Diabetes Cookbook, recommends enjoying this mildly flavored nut in yogurt form (yes, brands are now popping up incorporating this nut into their yogurts!) smothered over a stack of pancakes or in their raw form as a crunchy snack. Hemp Seeds Three tablespoons of hulled hemp seeds provide nearly 10 grams of plant-based protein to your meal for just 170 calories. Plus, theyre full of iron and unsaturated fats while offering a great nut-free alternative for crunch. While a bit more pricey than other seeds (a 12-ounce bag is roughly $12.99), theyre an easy addition to boost plant-protein on simple foods. Plant-based sports dietitian, Kelly Jones of kellyjonesnutrition.com recommends adding them to oatmeal, sprinkling them onto pancakes, using as a topper for soups and salads, and incorporating into homemade energy bites! Lupini Beans Lupini beans are a staple of the Mediterranean diet and making a name for themselves in the US due to their high protein content. In just a 1/­­2 cup cooked serving of the bean it packs nearly 13 grams of plant-based protein. But, where it packs in protein it lacks in fiber, with that same 1/­­2 cup serving providing only 2 grams. Found traditionally in the jarred food section of the market, there are a few ways you can cook with them! Amy Gorin, a plant-based registered dietitian and owner of Plant-Based Eats recommends draining and rinsing the beans as you would do with any other canned beans. Then, use them in your favorite dishes, like her delicious plant-based lupini salad! Quinoa One of the only whole grains that is a complete source of protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids), this is an excellent (and affordable) gluten-free, plant-based protein addition to nearly any diet! One cup of cooked quinoa contains nearly 8 grams of protein for just 220 calories (plus nearly 5 grams of fiber.) Quinoa also contains many important B vitamins as well as potassium and antioxidants. Registered Dietitian Tamara Hoffman of Unbeetable Nutrition and Wellness recommends adding quinoa to your taco Tuesday menus with a spicy Mexican seasoning or sauteing it into your stir-fry dishes with a soy sauce.

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter

November 2 2020 The Lotus and the Artichoke 

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter Visit Kickstarter to pre-order: http:/­­/­­kck.st/­­2TE62bO  My first book has been a bestseller for almost eight years, but ever since the sequels came out, I’ve wanted to go back and massively upgrade the visuals on the original book: to re-do the cover artwork and re-shoot most of the food photos. After publishing 5 other books and spending additional years in the kitchens of the world, I knew I could improve the recipes, add outstanding dishes that didn’t make it into the first versions, and bring more culinary authenticity and cultural awareness to the entire book. The newly updated, re-photographed and freshly illustrated edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures is my classic, first journey in the world of vegan cookbooks reimagined and upgraded. Its my tribute to powerful memories, awesome individuals, and fantastic meals that Ive made, found, and shared with countless others like you. I’ve wanted to re-create my first cookbook for years, but the opportunity didn’t really arise until the surprises and challenges that have been this monster of a year, 2020. Yasai Izakaya Genki, Tokyo 2019 You see, I’d planned to return to Japan and continue my adventures from late 2019. Ultimately, now, Id be wrapping up The Lotus and the Artichoke – JAPAN. But when Corona hit, not only did it cancel nearly all my events and most of my income, like for so many people, lockdowns and border closures meant drastic changes not just daily life but to our travel plans as well. The struggle to return to a form of life that is more predictable and free has been different for all of us. As life has become more routine and restricted, our travels have been more in our minds and through the eyes of others-- through art, music, video and social media. A big part of my own escape these last months has been getting into the kitchen and diving back into my first cookbook - revisiting the intense dishes, unforgettable places and global flavors that shaped my life and projects over the last eight years. Ive cooked for the family, for friends, and for neighbors. Hopefully opportunities for more lunch and dinner parties and big cooking events will shape up soon! updated world map & photo collage for WORLD 2.0 edition NEW in Vegan Recipes from World Adventures 2.0: - brand NEW cover art & illustration! - NEW introduction & kitchen info! - more travel stories! - 8+ totally NEW recipes (not found in earlier editions!)  - 70+ newly photographed dishes!  - 100+ updated & improved recipes!  - better recipe names with respect to cultures & inspirations - 8+ additional pages of adventures & travels!

VT Tried It: Nomad Nutrition meals

October 2 2020 Vegetarian Times 

Nomad Nutrition is the culmination of the pursuit of wild places and good food. Founder Denis Mikhailov, an avid climber, spent years looking for the best food to fuel his body and his adventures. Nomad Nutrition promotes a healthy, organic lifestyle with adventure meals geared towards backpackers, hikers, climbers, paddlers, hunters, and anyone on the go or venturing on overnight excursions. Nomad Nutrition has tweaked their recipes to contain the right ratios of healthy fats, lean protein and complex carbs. And theyre packed with nutrient-dense calories to keep the stoke high. They do their best to use organic, non-GMO, whole food ingredients, and all meals are gluten-free, with vegan and paleo options. These small batch meals are made in the Pacific Northwest, not in a lab or some factory overseas, and the company is working on becoming more and more sustainable. But how do they taste? Hungarian Goulash To be honest, Ive never had goulash, but its been the punchline for plenty of jokes, so I was quite surprised at how much I liked this! First of all, Nomad Nutritions meals are super low-effort: boil a cup of water, add to pouch, seal, and let cook. I suspect the potatoes and smoked paprika were my taste allies here, but there are beans to slip in some protein and nutritional value for even a carb-loving hiker like me. GF/­­dairy free, soy free, palm oil free, non GMO. Kathamandu Curry Ive been craving rice, and this is made with tiny rice noodles to stand in for the rice. Well spiced, and chickpeas for protein (20g per pouch). I love the coconut milk, but would have skipped the sundried tomatoes. Id still pick up a pouch of this over Mountain House in a heartbeat. GF/­­dairy free, soy free, palm oil free, non GMO.

Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl (Air Fryer Recipe)

September 24 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl (Air Fryer Recipe) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl "Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl" is inspired by my daughter-in-law, who enjoys light, fresh, and healthy meals. She suggested I do this video after trying my recipe out. It's hard to believe something this healthy makes such a delicious and filling meal! In this recipe, I grilled asparagus, broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. I then toss the grilled veggies with spiced chickpeas and a homemade ginger dressing. The ginger dressing definitely adds a kick to the flavor. This bowl is also pleasing to the eyes as it's filled with colorful vegetables and the chickpeas add some texture, in addition to protein! This dish vegan and gluten-free. This makes for a great lunch. Or you can serve this as a side dish or make a wrap using tortillas or flatbread. Recipe will serve 2 people.

You can prepare the dressing even a few days earlier. This is my go-to dressing and I make this extra, so it is always ready. Grilling the Vegetables: preheat the air fryer at 350-degree F. Spread the vegetables evenly on a tray, spray lightly with oil. Air fry for about 6 minutes. If you dont have air fryer grill the veggies in the oven or on the stove. Prepare the chickpeas, while vegetables are roasting, rinse the chickpeas few times changing the water. In a frying pan heat, the oil moderately, add chickpeas, stir fry for about 3 minutes. Chickpeas will catch some color. Add roasted cumin seed, black pepper, green chilies, ginger, and lemon juice cook and stir fry for about 2 minutes stirring occasionally, set aside. Chickpeas also can be prepared in advance. Toss the vegetables and chickpeas together and drizzle the dressing. NotesDo not overcook the vegetables, otherwise the vegetables will become too soft or mushy and will lose the colors.

Chickpea-Mushroom Soup with Tahini The classic Middle Eastern team of chickpeas and tahini (sesame paste) is combined in this tasty, offbeat soup recipe. Serve with fresh whole wheat pita bread. Middle Eastern tabbouli salad and a steamed green vegetable would round this meal out nicely. The post Chickpea-Mushroom Soup with Tahini appeared first on VegKitchen.
