Mushroom Xacuti (Goan Coconut Poppy Seed Sauce)

January 25 2022 Vegan Richa 

Mushroom Xacuti (Goan Coconut Poppy Seed Sauce)Mushroom Xacuti – A vegan spin on a Goan xacuti – Flavorful, spiced, meaty western Indian sauce that uses mushrooms instead of chicken! Serve with pav(dinner rolls), naan, roti, rice, or cauliflower rice for low carb. Naturally gluten-free. Nutfree Soyfree Xacuti (pronounced shakuti) is a popular dish from Goan cuisine. Traditionally, this is a dish that is made with chicken or fish, but I love to use mushrooms here. There are a variety of spices in this recipe. There is also freshly grated coconut, which you can find in frozen section in Indian stores or use dried shredded coconut. Together all these flavors make a delicious, meaty dish that you can serve the traditional way with dinner rolls or add to tacos and wraps. The spicy sauce is super flavorful and uses a combination of whole and ground spices and roasted coconut to make a deliciously complex flavored sauce. This Goan mushroom xacuti recipe does use a bunch of spices, but they are worth it. Once you make it you will be inclined to make a larger batch to freeze and serve it with vegan chicken, chickpeas or tofu! Each bite brings you a burst of flavors and textures. Get ready to expand your Indian spice cabinet as I explore a lot more regional Indian cuisine this year. The recipe also tastes great when using wild or forest mushrooms but you might have to cook them a bit longer than cremini or portabella. Then gather all the spice blend ingredients, grind them together with coconut and water to make a fragrant thick Goan gravy. Then stir fry garlic, chopped onion, and mushrooms and add some tamerind paste and then add the sauce. Simmer and adjust salt and garnish with coriander leaves! Done! Serve with pav(Indian dinner rolls) rice or flatbread More comfort food dinners - Baked Madras curry Tofu - Baked vegetable Curry Casserole - Baked Balti Veggies - Butter Tofu - Tofu in Spinach Curry - Vegetable Jalfrezi - Masoor Dal tadka  Continue reading: Mushroom Xacuti (Goan Coconut Poppy Seed Sauce)The post Mushroom Xacuti (Goan Coconut Poppy Seed Sauce) appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Spicy Urad Dal (Black Gram Lentil Dal)

January 10 2022 Vegan Richa 

Spicy Urad Dal (Black Gram Lentil Dal)Spicy Urad Dal – a simple but delicious vegan Indian daal recipe with black gram lentils in a fragrant Indian gravy that makes for the perfect comfort food dish to add to your weeknight or weekend dinner rotation. Gluten-free. This spicy urad dal is the perfect dish to spice up a simple weeknight or weekend dinner. You will love this dish not just for the mouthwatering blend of spices and depth of flavor but also for its heartiness. Serve it with roti, flatbread, brown rice or white rice or cauliflower rice and a simple plant-based curry or a spices veggie side for a nutritious meal that will have everyone licking their plates clean. Let’s talk about dal for a moment. Most Indian chefs have a half a dozen or so lentils in their pantry, each with a distinct flavor and texture. But types you’ll find most commonly used in dal recipes are chana dal (Bengal gram dal(split brown chickpea)), tuvar dal (split pigeon peas), masoor dal (split red lentils), moong dal (split green mung beans), and urad dal (split black gram/­­split black lentils). You can see all the Indian and English names and pictures of the Dals here Like many dal recipes, this spicy urad dal starts with boiling the lentils to the preferred tenderness (I do this in a pressure cooker but you can do it on the stovetop as well, see notes). To get the flavors going we incorporate a method called tempering, or tadka, the process of heating oil and adding a few spices to it. Here, we add whole cloves, cumin and bay leaves. What is Urad Dal? Urad dal are split, black urad or black lentils (vigna mungo) . These are not the same as the beluga lentils you might have at home. You can use urad dal without skin or a with skin in this recipe, but you definitely want to use the split kind. White/­­beige is the type without skin, the other will be black on one side. Urad dal is also lower carb among the dals. Whole Urad or whole black gram is used to make Dal makhani. You can use those here as well, just make sure to co them long enough. (40 minutes in instant pot). You can also use the petite yellow lentils – moong dal which is split green mung beans. Or use red lentils. The naming in various stores varies and yellow lentils can be round or the long ones. The long ones are moong dal. See pictures on myDals post to find the right dals. This year I plan to make a lot more Indian food and introduce you to variety of dishes that you wont always find in Indian restaurants. Restaurants keep a limited popular items menu but theres so much more in Indian cuisine! If you try any of these recipes do leave a review on the recipe post!

10 Vegan Thanksgiving Centerpieces Worthy of a Holiday Table

November 19 2021 Vegan Richa 

10 Vegan Thanksgiving Centerpieces Worthy of a Holiday TableFor an unforgettable holiday feast, try any of these Vegan Thanksgiving Centerpieces. They add up to a fabulous vegan Thanksgiving menu that plant-based folk will love and omnivores will appreciate as well! Some can be made ahead, too! These days, vegans and their vegan or omnivorous family members can surely purchase a phenomenal plant-based turkey, or any turkey roasts from supermarkets. But nothing will taste as good as a homemade vegan Thanksgiving centerpiece made from scratch and with love. Trust me, with these vegan Thanksgiving centerpieces, no one will miss the turkey! While I do already have a Thanksgiving main course recipe roundup on the blog, I wanted to showcase my favorite centerpieces in this round-up. The kind of dish you put right in the middle of the table accompanied by “uuhs” and “aahs” from your guests.  I really love servings veggie and nut roasts during the holiday season. Whenever I see a new vegan roast recipe, I try it so my collection is pretty decent by now and every recipe has those umami flavors we crave in a real centerpiece. Some of the dishes, like any vegan roast or loaf, can be prepared the day before and baked on Thanksgiving day. They also travel well, should you head over to a friend’s house for Friendsgiving. Without further ado, here is a collection of my best vegan entrees from mushroom wellington to whole roasted cauliflower to vegan meatloaf.Continue reading: 10 Vegan Thanksgiving Centerpieces Worthy of a Holiday TableThe post 10 Vegan Thanksgiving Centerpieces Worthy of a Holiday Table appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Malai Tofu Curry – Vegan Malai Paneer

November 3 2021 Vegan Richa 

Malai Tofu Curry – Vegan Malai PaneerMalai Tofu – a simple Indian weeknight curry with tofu paneer in a thick spiced tomato coconut milk sauce. Serve with naan and/­­or rice for a delicious plant-based dinner. Soy-free option included. This quick vegan malai Tofu curry is my spin on a regular restaurant-style creamy Paneer malai.  Another one to add to the options for Diwali! The word malai means cream and while traditionally, heavy cream is used for the cream component of the dish, I use coconut milk in this recipe. The sauce usually has some texture from soaked nuts and I use almond flour for the added texture which reduces all the steps for soaking and then blending the nuts. Another difference from the restaurant favorite would be that this recipe uses pan-fried tofu instead of paneer cheese to make this dairy-free. Crisped extra firm tofu is a great stand in in the delicious sauce! Indian cooking isnt hard once you get to set yourself up with all the required spices and this recipe is especially simple.  Tofu is so forgiving and there are no delicate veggies added so no need to be careful about overcooking anything. This meal is also great for making ahead of time. I like to use extra-firm tofu for this malai tofu recipe and press it for an half an hour before cooking. If you want, you can even press overnight. Simply wrap the tofu in a towel and place a heavy object on top to press. Once your tofu is pressed and cut into cubes, coat it with a mix of cornstarch, garam masala, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and then pan fry to crisp.

It’s made with a mix of protein-rich chickpeas and tofu and comes filled with roasted vegetables and features a sweet and sticky glaze. Vegan, Gluten-free, nut-free! The holiday season is SO CLOSE and like every year I add a few mains to the blog collection.  Try my Vegan Nut roast Meatloaf or my  Lentil Quinoa Loaf. Those were highly popular last year. This year I am going for a  glutenfree holiday roast made with chickpeas and tofu! This roast is rich and hearty and comes with a roasted vegetable filling and a sweet maple glaze for that umami. The mix comes together easily in a food processor and is gluten-free, nut-free and lentil-free! The chickpeas and tofu make a sturdy base. Tofu, chickpeas add volume, tofu makes it chewy a bit like seitan, rice flour and starch act as binders making the dough easy to work with. Make it into a cylinder roll or a stuffed roll. The glaze balances out the flavor so you get rich umami, creamy sweet roasted veg and a well seasoned savory “chickpea roast” all in one bite! Serve it with my vegan gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce or pick any of the sides I listed at the end of the post!

Diwani Handi Vegetables

September 27 2021 Vegan Richa 

Diwani Handi VegetablesLearn how to make restaurant-style Diwani Handi Vegetables at home with this easy handi veg recipe. Mixed vegetables and cashews simmered in a rich tomato-based sauce. Gluten-free & soy-free, Nutfree option. Diwani Handi is a popular order in many Indian restaurants and I know you will love it, too! Veggies cooked to perfection in a thick, rich and creamy slightly spicy gravy. This traditional Indian dish also known as Diwani handi veg is a traditional Hyderabadi style dish that exists in many different versions. The most popular variations to this recipe feature either an onion tomato or a nut-based gravy, or a combination of both. For this recipe, I use a tomato-based gravy enriched with non-dairy yogurt or cream. This diwani handi recipe is a simple homemade version of the restaurant-style vegetable dish. This simple vegetable curry is traditionally cooked in a clay pot (handi) but any pot will work. I use a regular skillet. Indian recipes often get translated as veggies or protein with some creamy sauce. But they are not all the same. The spices used, the time at which they are added to the recipe, alter the flavor profile significantly. In this recipe the whole cumin seeds get toasted really well to add amazing flavor, the spices cook with the caramelizing onion, then yogurt adds a creamy base and onion and tomato add volume. Veggies are cooked with garlic and fenugreek to infuse a layer of flavor before simmering in the sauce.l! Use up any veggies you have and elevate them with this wildly flavorful curry. Serve your handi veg with rice, naan, roti, kulcha, plain biryani or jeera rice. More Indian veggie dishes to try: - Butter Tofu GF - IP Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce , with Cauliflower.

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

Gluten-free. Looking for a side for your holiday dinner? Make these roasted root vegetables. I like a mix of roasted golden beets, leeks, sweet potatoes and fennel – the perfect blend. The roasting process caramelizes the natural sugar of the root vegetables so after roasting they taste amazingly sweet and delicious. The stars of this side dish are the golden beets. Roasting concentrates the natural sweetness of the beets and the golden beets take so beautifully to herbs. Also, they combine easily and naturally with the fragrant aroma of the whole roasted garlic cloves, which enhances their earthy flavor. I love to serve these roasted root veggies as a simple side or use it as a stuffing for my holiday roast.    More recipes for the holidays: - Lentil Quinoa Loaf  - Lentil Shepherds Pie - Chickpea Veggie Loaf - Shepherds Pie with Chickpeas - Cauliflower Alfredo, Spinach, Artichoke Lasagna - Easy Vegan Veggie Lasagna - Grilled Portobello with Garlic Sauce Continue reading: Roasted Golden Beets, Fennel & Leek – Roasted Root VegetablesThe post Roasted Golden Beets, Fennel & Leek – Roasted Root Vegetables appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower Manchurian

October 8 2021 Vegan Richa 

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower ManchurianIn this lightened-up take on the Indian-Chinese restaurant-favorite Gobi Manchurian, cauliflower florets are baked up until crispy, then drenched in a sweet and spicy delicious manchurian sauce! Serve it as an appetizer or main dish. Gluten-free option.  I’m always excited when I can present you with an easy spin on a restaurant favorite and today I have a good one for you! One of those special-occasion restaurant menu items that we all love to order when eating out but never considered making at home. Cauliflower Manchurian! This makes a great addition to the festival menu! What is Cauliflower Manchurian? Gobi Manchurian, or Cauliflower Manchurian, is a super popular take-out and restaurant menu item. This  Indo-Chinese dish is typically fried but I prefer to bake the florets in the oven. Baking gives cauliflower an amazing texture; you won’t miss the greasy, fried coating. The crispy oven-baked florets are then tossed with a delicious sweet, spicy, and tangy Manchurian sauce! This easy vegan dish makes for the most delicious appetizer but it can also be served as a main  when paired with rice. The ingredient list for making cauliflower manchurian is on the longer side but don’t be intimidated by that. Most ingredients are pantry staples and the preparation is so easy so it’s so worth it! Manchurian sauce is a very versatile sauce. You can add some Crisped tofu,  veggie meatballs or vegan chicken to the sauce or add in some noodles.

Sesame Shallot Soy Curl Stir Fry

September 19 2021 Vegan Richa 

Sesame Shallot Soy Curl Stir FryThis Sesame Shallot Soy Curl Stir Fry makes for an amazing weeknight dinner! Chewy, marinated chicken like soycurls and broccolini in a sweet, salty and sticky Asian sesame stir-fry sauce! Nutfree Recipe Gluten-free option! This Sesame Shallot Soy Curl Stir Fry makes for an amazing weeknight dinner that rivals any takeout meal. Soy curls marinated in a sweet-salty-spicy marinade, then stir-fried in sesame oil along with shallots and garlic. Chinese broccoli and Thai Basil are added along the way for that authentic flavor, and the rest of the marinade is also added to create a delicious stir-fry sauce. Serve this easy soy curl stir fry with rice, broccoli rice, zoodles or noodles! Soy curls are one my favorite meat subs. They are made with whole non-gmo soybeans and you can find them in some stores or order them online on amazon. Thai Basil vs Sweet Basil For this recipe, we are using Thai basil! While you could use sweet basil I recommend you try and find the Thai kind. How to distinguish them? Thai basil has a purple stem while sweet basil has a green stem. Also check the leaves:  unlike the delicate, floppy big leaves you see on sweet basil, Thai basil leaves are smaller and sturdier. This means they hold up better during cooking making this basil ideal for stir-fries. Lastly, the taste: Thai basil is spicy with an anise, or licorice-like flavor, while sweet basil has a more mild peppery and sweet taste. On cooking with soy curls: Soy Curls come dry and need to be rehydrated and cooked in order to enjoy them. They will increase in size quite a bit as they soak. You need to soak them in the marinade for only about 10 minutes. I marinade the soycurls in the sauce for the extra flavor and then toast them before adding the rest of the ingredients. This improves the texture! Youve got to try them this way as this stir fry or my General Tsos soy curls! Soy curls are not same as soy chunks that are chewier and take much longer to cook. Soy curls can be found in some grocery stores or online on amazon.
