Try them. Trust me, you will love this pistachio cookie recipe for its simplicity! I don’t even bother rolling out the dough and just scoop up 1 tbsp at a time and shape it into a flat disk. The cookies do not have to look perfectly round. They will spread in the oven as they bake and be just perfect. The cookie dough is really straightforward. We start by grinding the raw pistachio nuts, sugar and spices in a food processor or blended to make our own pistachio flour.  These are so amazingly good! Bake them 15 minutes for softer cookies and a couple of minutes longer for crunchier. The exact baking time always depends on the oven, size of the cookie etc. These cookies are a modified version of Nankhatai(Indian shortbread like cookies). They have vibrant flavors that work really well together , pistachios, cardamom and saffron. You can use just vanilla if you dont have cardamom or saffron.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Date Caramel Snack Bars

May 16 2021 Vegan Richa 

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Date Caramel Snack BarsThese Vegan Date Caramel Bars are the best grab-and-go snack for all lovers of oatmeal bars, chocolate, and caramel. Easy & delicious oatmeal chocolate chip bars made completely from scratch in no time, layered with creamy homemade date caramel. These Vegan Oatmeal Date Caramel Bars are a wonderful thing. They are a bit like Carmelita Bars, but with some shredded coconut added on top which makes them even better! If you have not tried date caramel before, be prepared to fall in love. Date Caramel is basically just softened dates, pureed with a little liquid like a splash of non-dairy milk, some maple syrup, and a bit of fat ( like almond butter). What comes out of the food processor is just so similar to cooked caramel that you can replicate all your favorite non-vegan chocolate bars with it. These Date Caramel Bars are basically Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Snack Bars with a caramel layer in the middle  – just so good! I mean, its pretty hard to go wrong when you combine chewy oats, dark chocolate, and ooey gooey caramel into a snack bar, right? Kids love these and so do adults.   I love to make these vegan date caramel bars in advance and bring them over to a friends house for dessert whenever I’m invited for a dinner. They also make an amazing brunch buffet or potluck item. Thankfully, theyre super portable (just bring them over in the pan) and hold up well at room temperature.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

December 21 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars Makes 8 bars Photo by VK Rees These are the chewy granola bars of your dreams! Totally appropriate for dessert or breakfast or midnight snack. Brown rice syrup gives them the chewy stickiness youre looking for and crispy rice cereal makes them light and crunchy.. If you love a salty sweet combo, you can use roasted salted peanuts here, or increase the salt by a big pinch. You can also make them a little fancier by drizzling in chocolate and then sprinkling with flaky sea salt, like Maldon. Originally published in Isa Does It. Ingredients 1/­­2 cup smooth, natural peanut butter 1/­­3 cup pure maple syrup 1/­­3 cup brown rice syrup 1 tablespoon melted refined coconut oil 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 2 cups rolled oats 1 cup crisp rice cereal 1/­­2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped 1/­­3 cup chocolate chips Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, maple syrup, and brown rice syrup, until smooth. A strong fork usually gets the job done, pretty well. Mix in the oil, vanilla, and salt. Mix in the oatmeal and crisp rice cereal. Start with the fork and then wet your hands and knead together well. Be very firm, the cereal should even crunch up a bit as youre kneading, and you should have a compact, slightly crumbly mixture. Add the peanuts and chocolate chips, and once again, knead until well distributed. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, and press very firmly and as evenly as you can. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, the sides should be golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Remove from pan by pulling up the sides of the parchment. Now slice into 8 squares and serve! The best way to slice is to use a chefs knife, and press down in one firm motion. Do not saw the bars. Store bars in the fridge in individually plastic wrap and they should keep for at least 5 days.

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! As with all 6 of my cookbooks, I have written, illustrated, cooked, photographed and designed this book myself. The Lotus and the Artichoke is the ultimate combination of my passions: art, travel, vegan cooking, and photography. - My fully updated and re-envisioned first cookbook of vegan recipes inspired by my travels, stays with families, and cooking in the kitchens of restaurants worldwide -  224 pages with 100+ recipes and over 90 full-page color photos  - Personal stories, art, and recipes inspired by my travels and culinary adventures in over 50 countries.  - Great for cooks of all levels, from beginner to advanced: Recipes use easy-to-find ingredients  - Delicious, easy-to-follow recipes designed to satisfy and impress eaters of all ages, tastes, and minds - Available in ENGLISH... und auch auf DEUTSCH!

Sausage Oatmeal Pancakes

April 17 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Sausage Oatmeal Pancakes Makes 6 big pancakes Some recipes make you question everything you thought you knew. Who am I? How did I get here? Is it a good place to be? The answer seems simple. I love pancakes. I love oatmeal. I love vegan sausages. But combining a million good things doesnt always mean you will end up with a good thing. I mean, I love oil and I love water but you know the rest. So I fucked around and found out. And I am here to tell you: combining all these things leads to an even better thing. Pancakes that are savory, with a fluffy yet hearty texture. The most filling delicious breakfast! A steady stream of maple syrup poured over the top doesnt hurt one bit. I also sprinkled with a little flake sea salt to up that sweet and salty combo. Without further ado, Oatmeal Sausage Pancakes. Your new favorite breakfast. Recipe notes: ~I do have a recipe for homemade breakfast sausages but Im not giving it to you yet. I would recommend either Field Roast Maple Breakfast Links or Beyond Sausage. Field roast is a little more on the sweet side so whatever floats your boat! ~ I have a lot of pancake tips all over the site, but Im not sure Ive ever written this one: If your pancakes arent cooking through, try covering them while cooking. ~ I love cooking pancakes in refined coconut oil! So buttery and yum. But you can cook in oil or vegan butter as well. I recommend Miyoko’s Butter for topping them, too. Ingredients 7 oz vegan sausages 1 1/­­4 cups all-purpose flour  1/­­2 cup quick cooking rolled oats  2 1/­­4 teaspoons baking powder 1/­­4 teaspoon salt  1 1/­­2 cups unsweetened soymilk (or fave vegan milk) 1/­­4 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 tablespoon safflower (or any mild vegetable oil) 1 tablespoon sugar  1/­­2 teaspoon vanilla Refined coconut oil for cooking Directions Refined coconut oil for cooking  In a non-stick pan over medium heat, cook the sausages in a little oil. Once cooked, set them aside to cool completely. When they are cool enough to handle, tear them into tiny pieces. No need to wash the pan, you will be using it for pancakes in a bit and the sausage oil will taste good! Pop them in the freezer to cool completely while you make the pancake batter. Combine flour, oats, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add milk, applesauce, oil, sugar and vanilla.  Use a rubber spatula to stir the wet a bit to combine, then incorporate it with the dry, mixing just until everything is moistened. Fold cool, crumbled sausages into the batter. Let batter rest 10 minutes.  Preheat pan over medium heat. Melt coconut oil for each pancake. Scoop a scant 1/­­2 cup into the pan and cook until bubbly, then cover with a lid for another minute or two so it cooks through. Flip and cook on the other side till lightly brown. Proceed with the rest of the pancakes! When serving, sprinkle with flake sea salt after pouring the syrup if you love sweet and salty. I also threw on some maple butter, yum.

Oatmilk Coconut Eggnog

December 23 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Oatmilk Coconut Eggnog Makes about 1 1/­­2 quarts Photo by James Walmsley I love this recipe because its thick without any thickeners, has lots of warming spice and the secret ingredient – apple cider vinegar – lends just the slightest tang that vegan nogs are sometimes missing. The turmeric is there to give that telltale eggy glow but also adds a little flavor. If you have a vanilla bean, definitely scrape it in here instead of the extract. And if you dont want to grate fresh nutmeg no prob, just use pre-ground. No one is judging. But I find it very satisfying to have that little dose of aromatherapy while grating a fresh nutmeg pod. Serve warm or cold, with about 2 ounces rum per each cup of nog if youre feeling boozy.  Ingredients 2 1/­­2 cups plain oatmilk 1/­­2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg 1/­­2 cup sugar 2 14 oz cans coconut milk 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Cinnamon sticks for garnish Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, maple syrup, and brown rice syrup, until smooth. A strong fork usually gets the job done, pretty well. Mix in the oil, vanilla, and salt. Mix in the oatmeal and crisp rice cereal. Start with the fork and then wet your hands and knead together well. Be very firm, the cereal should even crunch up a bit as youre kneading, and you should have a compact, slightly crumbly mixture. Add the peanuts and chocolate chips, and once again, knead until well distributed. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, and press very firmly and as evenly as you can. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, the sides should be golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Remove from pan by pulling up the sides of the parchment. Now slice into 8 squares and serve! The best way to slice is to use a chefs knife, and press down in one firm motion. Do not saw the bars. Store bars in the fridge in individually plastic wrap and they should keep for at least 5 days.

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.
