Michelin-Star Chef Turns Acclaimed London Restaurant Vegan

June 27 2021 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Gauthier Soho Michelin-star and multi-award winning chef, Alexis Gauthier, has turned his acclaimed London restaurant, Gauthier Soho, completely vegan. The French fine-dining restaurant re-opened on June 23, as Covid-restrictions lifted in the city. After 10 years in service, the restaurant’s menu is now entirely plant-based. “I believe it is our duty as human beings to leave the planet in a better state than we found it, and a very good place to start is addressing the impact we make with our needless and selfish consumption of animals. I am a classically trained French chef who held Michelin stars for 12 years and the thought of someone like me being vegan would have been insane five or ten years ago. But now the world is waking up. This is the future.” Chef Alexis Gauthier A Past & Future with Plants When Chef Gauthier opened his restaurant in 2011, he had a strong interest in serving plant-focused dishes. At that time, 20-30% of the restaurants bookings were already vegetarian tasting menus, according to the restaurant’s website. Five years later, when Gauthier went vegan himself, the idea of removing animal products from the kitchen became more personally compelling. However it took a few […] The post Michelin-Star Chef Turns Acclaimed London Restaurant Vegan appeared first on HappyCow.

Jo Jo Potatoes

June 14 2021 Vegan Richa 

Jo Jo PotatoesMy Homemade Jo Jo Potatoes are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside and theyre sure to become your new favorite side dish or game day snack! They can be baked or pan-fried. Who’s obsessed with Jo Jo potatoes? What potatoes? Dont feel bad if you dont know what I’m talking about here! Just know that if you love potato wedges and fries, these babies are something that youve missed out on your whole life!  Jo jo Potatoes – these are seriously GOOD. Tender on the inside, crispy on the outside, with a glorious coating of golden browned breading, baked or pan-fried to absolute potato perfection! What are Jo JO Potatoes? Jo Jo Potatoes are potatoes wedges that are (sometimes) preboiled, then coated in seasoned flour and a batter and fried to crispy, golden-brown perfection. The outsides are nice and crisp, the insides are fluffy like a perfectly baked potato. These upgraded potato wedges make a wonderful side dish, TV snack, or a shared appetizer, and are typically served with lots of different sauces and condiments like plain or seasoned sour cream, ketchup,  or barbecue sauce! Also so good with  Ranch  Dressing or any vegan Ranch Dip. I’ll list my favorite dips for this vegan version in a second. You might find these special potato wedges as a gas station snack but they can also be part of any diner breadbasket of the midwest, upper midwest, and Pacific Northwest. What is the difference between JoJo and potato wedges? A true Jojo potato is a potato cut into eight segments, breaded with flour and batter – like fried chicken, and cooked in a pressure fryer. Well, I don’t have a pressure fryer and I bet you don’t either but that’s ok! You can either bake these in the oven or pan-fry them! Also, a true jo jo is served with ranch.  In the tips section, I list my favorite vegan dips for these.

Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing

April 22 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing Hi friends! Popping in today with this springy radish salad with a cashew sour cream dressing. When I was growing up in Russia, my grandma would make a salad like this all the time during radish season in the spring and early summer. It was super simple – just radishes, cucumbers, and tons of sliced green onion, dressed with sour cream – but it was my absolute favorite. The way that the fatty sour cream counteracts the fresh and sharp flavors of the radishes and green onions is something out of this world. For this vegan variation, I came up with a cashew sour cream dressing, and the resulting salad tasted exactly like the salads of my childhood. I don’t think I would ever be able to tell the difference, if not for the fact that I’m not eating it in my grandma’s cozy kitchen. Hope you’ll give this salad a try, it’s the perfect embodiment of spring! Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients ½ cup cashews ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons lemon juice (from about a half of a large lemon) ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar ¼ teaspoon onion powder ¼ teaspoon garlic powder sea salt freshly ground black pepper about 20 radishes (from around 2 batches), trimmed and sliced into half-moons 2 Persian (baby) cucumbers, sliced into half-moons 3 scallions, white and green parts, sliced Instructions Make the cashew sour cream dressing. If not using a high-speed blender, soak the cashews in hot water for 15 minutes, then drain (no need to soak if you have a high-powered blender). In an upright blender, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Blend on high until very smooth. Taste for salt and pepper, and adjust if needed. Transfer the dressing to a jar and chill in the refrigerator while slicing the vegetables. In a large bowl, combine the radishes, cucumbers, and scallions. Add enough of the sour cream dressing to dress the salad to your liking (you might have some leftover dressing). Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Serve the salad right away. 3.5.3226 The post Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

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!

Celebrating Navratri!

October 22 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Celebrating Navratri! Hello all! I hope everyone is doing well and getting used to our new normal.  I know this year our holiday celebrations don’t feel the same.  We are used to celebrating with large numbers of people and celebrating the festival season. I know it may not be ideal, but we can still make the most of the season by getting together in our backyards with small groups.   Some of our friends have planned to enjoy garba with three or four families.  That way they can still enjoy dressing up in nice clothes.  Of course, they plan on wearing masks and practicing social distancing. I don’t know about you, but I feel like masks have become a fashion statement and they are just a part of our daily life and just another accessory! I would love to hear about how you all are celebrating the holiday season.  Here are some of my suggestions for dishes to prepare for a Navratri feast: Makhana Matar Curry Sabudana (Tapioca) Bhel Paneer Malai Ladoo Nariyal Ka Ladoo Dal Puri Dal Puri Aloo Chaat The post Celebrating Navratri! appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Marinated White Bean Salad

August 5 2020 Golubka Kitchen 

Marinated White Bean Salad We have a marinated zucchini recipe in the blog archives that’s a favorite to which we keep coming back to every year, and this white bean salad definitely has its roots there. Zucchini can be surprisingly delicious raw, especially when you show it a little love like we do here – salting it to rid it of excess liquid, so that it can fully take on the flavors of the marinade. The texture of raw marinated zucchini is also great – snappy but soft at the same time. In this salad, we combine the raw zucchini with white beans, tomato, and herbs, drenching everything in a very simple marinade. The result is so refreshing and delicious in its simplicity. I’ve been making some variation of it pretty much every week this summer. You can very easily customize this recipe to your needs: use other beans or lentils, add any number of fresh summer vegetables, swap out the basil for another herb, add spices to the marinade, etc. Hope you’ll give it a try! Marinated White Bean Salad   Print Serves: 4 Ingredients 2 medium zucchini (about 12 oz total) - mandolined or thinly sliced sea salt 1 small shallot - minced zest and juice from 1 lemon 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar pinch red pepper flakes freshly ground black pepper ⅓ cup olive oil 2½ cups cooked white beans (about 2 15 oz cans) 1 large or 2 medium tomatoes - cut into chunks or cubed a few handfuls of basil or other fresh herbs of choice - sliced or chopped Instructions Put the zucchini in a colander, sprinkle generously with salt, and mix well to coat. Place the colander over a bowl to catch the water released by the zucchini and set aside to drain for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in the bottom of the bowl in which youll be mixing the salad, combine the shallot, lemon zest and juice, vinegar, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper to taste, whisk to combine. Stream in the olive oil while whisking, until emulsified. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Gently squeeze the zucchini by pressing on it in the colander, to wring out any remaining water. Rinse it well to wash off the salt. Put the zucchini on a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Add the zucchini to the bowl with the dressing, along with the beans, tomato, herbs, and another pinch of salt, mix well. Taste for seasonings once again and adjust if needed. Place the salad in the refrigerator to marinate for a few hours or overnight before serving. Enjoy cold. Notes I used baby zucchini here, thats why they look like cucumbers! 3.5.3226 The post Marinated White Bean Salad appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Late Summer Fruit Salad with Agave-Mint Dressing

July 24 2020 VegKitchen 

Late Summer Fruit Salad with Agave-Mint Dressing Late-summer fruits can be lush and ripe, but are often past their peak of flavor.

Chickpea Lettuce and Tomato Wraps

July 21 2020 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Chickpea Lettuce and Tomato Wraps Chickpea salad sandwiches made in the manner of tuna salad sandwiches have been on menu at my house for years. My latest version is one of the bonus recipes you’ll get when you pre-order my new book, The Plant Protein Revolution Cookbook. Instead seasoning it to tastes like tuna, I’ve changed up the flavor a bit to give it a smoky nuance reminiscent of a BLT.  In addition to the chickpeas, other protein-rich ingredients in this recipe include cashews and hemp seeds. You can serve this on whole-grain bread if you prefer, but I love it in a wrap. Chickpea Lettuce and Tomato Wraps Makes 2 servings - 1/­­2 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked in hot water for 1 hour, then drained - 1/­­4 cup water - 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice - 1 tablespoon ground hemp seeds - 1 teaspoon yellow mustard - 1/­­4 teaspoon garlic powder - 1/­­4 teaspoon onion powder - Salt and ground black pepper - 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed - 1/­­2 teaspoon smoked paprika - 1/­­2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke - 1/­­4 cup minced celery - 2 tablespoons minced scallions - 2 large whole-grain tortillas - 4 large butter lettuce leaves - 1 ripe tomato, thinly sliced In a high-powered blender, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, hemp seeds, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed. The dressing will be thick. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, smoked paprika, Liquid Smoke, and about half of the reserved dressing, mashing to break up the chickpeas. Add the celery, scallions, and as much of the remaining dressing as desired.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well. To assemble, arrange a tortilla on a flat work surface. Place the 2 lettuce leaves in the lower third of the tortillas and top with a row of tomato slices. Spoon half of the chickpea mixture on top of the tomatoes, spreading evenly. Use your hands to gently roll up the wrap.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Cut each wrap in half and serve. PRE-ORDER NOW:  If you order The Plant Protein Revolution Cookbook before August 11, 2020, youll receive this and other bonus recipes that you can start using right away!

Tempeh Beet Reubens

January 8 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tempeh Beet Reubens Makes 4 sandwiches Photo By Joshua Food I have to issue a few warnings for this sandwich:  1)  you will end up covered in orange dressing  2) some sauerkraut will fall on your cats head And if those things dont happen, youre eating it wrong. Tangy tempeh and thin sliced beets lend a cornbeefy Eastern European flair and a gorgeous burgundy hue. With the caraway rye, sauerkraut and russian dressing, youll definitely be hitting all the right notes! If youd like to take it a step further, homemade Swizz Cheese drives the point home, but in a pinch some sliced avocado works really well and thats how we did it in the 90s and we loved it. You can also just buy some vegan cheese, who am I to say. This recipe is originally from I Can Cook Vegan. Recipe Notes ~This is a prime example of marinating tempeh to have it suck up flavor. The acidic, salty, fatty marinade counteracts the bitterness of the tempeh and brings out its meaty notes. Searing in cast iron seals the deal. ~The Swizz Cheese is so easy! I dont know how I discovered this but truffle oil plus sauerkraut juice = a swissy flavor. If you cant procure truffle oil, it wont be as swissy but it would still be pretty good! Ingredients 1 1/­­2 cups sauerkraut (reserve liquid if making Swizz Cheese) For the Tempeh: 1 pound tempeh, cut into four equal pieces, then cut through the middle so that you have eight thin squares 1 medium beet, peeled, sliced as thin as you can get it For the Marinade: 1/­­2 cup vegetable broth 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/­­4 cup fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons tamari Several sprinkles of fresh pepper For the Swizz Cheese: 1 1/­­2 cups unroasted cashews (if you don’t have a VitaMix blender then soak the cashews in water overnight or boil for 20 minutes and drain) 3/­­4 cup sauerkraut juice 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons mellow white miso 1 tablespoon black truffle oil 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/­­4 cup refined coconut oil, melted For the Dressing: 1/­­3 cup vegan mayo 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon onion powder 1/­­4 cup finely chopped dill pickles To cook and serve: 2 tablespoons olive oil 8 slices large caraway rye bread Dill pickle slices for garnish (garnish with pickles on toothpicks) Directions Marinade the tempeh: Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a large mixing bowl. Add the tempeh and beets and marinate for at least an hour, turning occasionally. If youre making the cheese: place all cheese ingredients in a high speed blender then blend away until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula to make sure you get everything. Chill until ready to use.  Make the dressing: Mix all the dressing ingredients in a mug. Set aside.  Now we are ready to rock! Preheat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add oil to pan. Use a slotted spoon to transfer tempeh and beets out of marinade and into the pan, shaking off excess marinade. Place in a relatively single layer.  Cook for about 10 minutes, using a thin metal spatula to turn often. When beets are softened and tempeh is browned, its ready! Toast bread and spread dressing on all slices. Top with tempeh and beets. If using, pour on a few tablespoons of Swizz Cheese. Add sauerkraut. Close sandwich. Spike with dill pickled toothpicks and serve. 

7 Tips for Shaking Sugar

November 7 2020 Vegetarian Times 

1. Rethink breakfast and afternoon treats Many people who decide to eat less sugar face two immediate challenges: what to eat for breakfast and finding a non-sweet afternoon treat, says Amy Chaplin, author of Whole Food Cooking Every Day (2020, Artisan/­­Workman Publishing Co., Inc.) which includes many sugar-free recipes. For breakfast, Chaplin suggests making your own muesli or granola using yakon syrup, a natural sweetener that is low on the glycemic index (GI) scale (meaning it doesnt bombard your body with sugar because it is digested slowly). Other options: tofu scrambles and steel-cut oatmeal. For snacks, go for apple slices with peanut butter, plain yogurt with blueberries or carrots and hummus. Instead of soda or fruit juices, drink chilled sparkling water with a slice of lemon or herbal teas. 2. Know what you are eating There are at least 200 other names for sugar on food labels, says Uma Naidoo, MD, director of Nutritional and Lifestyle Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital and author of This Is Your Brain on Food (2020 Little Brown Spark/­­Hachette). Fructose, dextrose and maltose are just a few. And look for added sugars Dr. Naidoo advises. Foods like ketchup, pasta sauces and salad dressings often have more added sugars than sweet foods where you expect sugar. 3. Mind your carbs Choose to eat complex carbs that are low on the GI scale such as apples, oranges, bran cereals and black beans, which are slowly digested, and skip simple carbs such as potatoes, French fries, white rice, white pasta and refined breakfast cereals which are high on the scale. 4. Try new ingredients When cooking, use naturally sweet ingredients in place of sugar. I like using freshly squeezed orange juice, berries and berry powders, beet juice powder, vanilla, coconut butter or dried coconut flakes, says Chaplin. Medjool dates are another good choice, and spices such as cinnamon add extra flavor. Related: 8 Way to Improve Your Gut Health & Mood 5. Be fruit-wise Because fruit contains fiber and nutrients, it is digested slowly and its sugar is absorbed slowly too. Still, its wise to limit fruit. I prefer lower glycemic fruit such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and Bing cherries. These options contain less fructose, the natural sugar in fruit, says Dr. Naidoo. Two to three servings of fruit eaten throughout the day should be OK for most people, she adds, unless you are diabetic or have fructose intolerance in which case you should consult with your doctor. 6. Remember why its important Sweet cravings are hard to resist. Sugar-laden foods increase serotonin in the brain and make you feel good, explains Dr. Naidoo. The calming effect of serotonin may often be felt shortly after eating a candy bar, cake, or other foods high in simple carbs--this is a reason why these foods can be so addictive. Remind yourself that consuming too much sugar can raise the risk of life-threatening illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease when overwhelmed with a craving for a sugary sweet, 7. Enjoy dessert! Dont deprive yourself of luscious desserts. Start to replace those sugary treats with healthier options that still taste good, says Dr. Naidoo. Another option is to switch to baking with erythritol--sold as Swerve--in recipes, says Dr. Naidoo. Even when using artificial sweeteners, however, moderation is key. She also suggests making your own fruit-based ice cream. Amy Chaplins new cookbook features fruit-based desserts such as Berry Chia Pudding--A crowd pleaser for sure! Chaplin says.

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.

During the summer, a lot of us feel like eating simple, light and refreshing food. Salads are perfect and make for great lunches! Why not try a bowl of salad to satisfy those fresh and healthy cravings? Salads are super simple to assemble. You can use whatever you have on hand paired with your favorite dressing. I prefer a salad with a light homemade dressing.

Summer Garden Pasta Salad

July 15 2020 Golubka Kitchen 

Summer Garden Pasta Salad I put this salad together on a whim a few weeks ago following a craving, and we liked it so much that we’ve been making it a bunch ever since. It’s nothing fancy – just some sweet, roasted summer veg tossed with pasta, chickpeas, basil, olives, and a three ingredient dressing. This is about as much effort as I like to put into cooking in the summer, and the extra flavorful, sun-fed produce really allows for that. This salad packs up nicely, which makes it a great thing to bring to an outdoor gathering or the beach. It also gets better with time, as it has a chance to sit and marinate, so it’s a great make-ahead option for all your summer plans. Hope you’ll give it a try! Summer Garden Pasta Salad   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 1 medium zucchini - sliced into half moons 1 medium summer squash - sliced into half moons 2 red, orange or yellow bell peppers - seeded and sliced into 1-inch chunks sea salt freshly ground black pepper ¼ cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling the vegetables zest and juice from 1 large lemon 1½ tablespoons Dijon mustard 10 oz pasta of choice 1 15 oz can chickpeas (or 1¾ cup cooked chickpeas) heaping ½ cup pitted Castelvetrano olives or other olives of choice a few large handfuls fresh basil - torn or sliced Instructions Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Put the zucchini, squash, and bell peppers on a large, parchment-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil, mixing well to coat. Roast for 20 minutes, then mix and roast for another 15-20 minutes, until soft. Meanwhile, prepare a large bowl for serving the pasta salad. In the bottom of the bowl, combine the lemon zest, juice, and mustard, whisking to combine. Stream in ¼ cup of olive oil while whisking, until emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste, mix to combine. Boil a pot of well-salted water for the pasta. Cook the pasta according to the timing on the package. Drain and add the pasta to the bowl with the dressing, followed by the roasted vegetables, chickpeas, olives, and basil. Mix well to coat everything in the dressing. Let the salad cool at room temperature for a few minutes, then cover and transfer to the refrigerator. Chill the salad for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight. It will get even better with time. Enjoy the salad cold. 3.5.3226   New Ebook! This ebook is a collection of straightforward, plant-based recipes for busy people who love to cook.
