Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

September 30 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Yes, I am jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. I couldn’t resist doing a pumpkin recipe (it is fall after all) and if you do a sweet pumpkin recipe, you have to add pumpkin pie spice, right? This kind of reminds me of the time I accidentally wore the school colors on spirit day when I was in high school and I had to spend the whole day explaining to everyone that no, I didn’t have school spirit, and that the navy blue t-shirt I was wearing was just a coincidence. “Hey Kiersten, do we have a quiz today in biology?” “I DIDN’T MEAN TO WEAR THIS SHIRT TODAY! IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! I HATE THIS SCHOOL!” That was the worst day. Sometimes I throw things together just to eat, not really intending to blog about it; this is one of those recipes. I bought an adorable little pie pumpkin and made puree with it for another recipe and had just a little bit left, so I added a little almond butter and maple syrup, folded in oats and raisins and pepitas, put in a little sprinkle-sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and rolled the mixture into balls. Random! But they […]

Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad

September 16 2019 Oh My Veggies 

  This Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad is really simple, and it’s one of our favorite lunch recipes. This recipe is perfect for making at the beginning of the week, to have either for lunch or as an afternoon snack. The protein and fiber in the beans help you feel fuller for longer. Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad is great to eat on its own, but it’s also a terrific filling for pita bread. And since the oil and lemon juice act as a marinade, this is one of those recipes that tastes better and better as the days go on, so be sure to save some for later! You may find you enjoy the flavor later in the week than you did in the beginning. But, the fresh flavor is also delicious enough that you can whip this up as a side dish for a quick weeknight dinner. Give the recipe a try and let us know how you like it in the comments below.

Restaurant Review: Giusto Vegan In Torrevieja, Spain

July 11 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Torrevieja is well known for its beaches and is one of the most tourist-heavy cities in Spain. However, it is by no means the capital of veganism. There are a few restaurants that offer vegan options, but only one that is 100% vegan, and thats Giusto Vegan Restaurant. When you walk into Giusto Vegan you instantly get an Italian vibe. They have the typical Toscana chairs and decor made with dry pasta, but without using the repetitive colors of green, red and white (the Italian flag trio). So its really nice. The menu is mostly based on Italian food, as an Italian restaurant should be, but also with some Mexican dishes like fajitas. For starters, we ordered French fries with salsa rosa, like a pink mayo, and a Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was good, although I would prefer more dressing. And the heura (Spanish vegan chicken made by Foods for Tomorrow) was totally delicious. The big deception came with the French fries. The quantity was so small, and they came with a simple ketchup and vegan mayo sauce…so because of that, we thought they were overpriced. We continued with some Italian dishes like Green Fettuccini Pasta with heura. Again […] The post Restaurant Review: Giusto Vegan In Torrevieja, Spain appeared first on The Veggie Blog.

Restaurant Highlight: Bio Solo Organico, Buenos Aires

May 28 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Bio Solo Organico is not only the first organic vegetarian restaurant in Argentina, but also the whole of Latin America! Claudia Carrara is the pioneer that took the leap of opening her own vegetarian restaurant in Argentina’s charming capital of Buenos Aires. Everything started from the desire to bring her children up with the best possible nutrition. Soon enough, she began to sell natural dishes to her neighbours that she would create from the leftover vegetables she had in her kitchen. The success of her improvised cuisine led a friend to offer her a few tables where her clients could sit and enjoy healthy meals. One thing led to another and the idea of opening a restaurant was born. Originally, the main focuses of Claudias research were health, taste, and environmental sustainability. First with the humble intention to feed her kids in a conscious way, and after in the way she would develop her restaurant to have the best possible impact on her society. The name of her cuisine speaks for itself. At Bio Solo Organico, they only work with fresh, local and organic products and this is guaranteed since they were granted the Organic Certification by Food Safety.

Fantastic Falafel

May 13 2019 Meatless Monday 

These flavorful patties are fun served family style. Letting everyone have the opportunity to assemble their own distinct creation is an excellent way to inspire kids to enjoy their food. If you like your falafel slathered with a savory spread, consider adding either hummus or eggplant dip to your offerings. For a super-simple tahini sauce option, whisk some water, a tablespoon at a time, into 1/­­2 cup tahini until it reaches the desired consistency, then season to taste with garlic powder, a squeeze of lemon juice, and salt. This recipe comes to us from OMD: The Simple, Plant-Based Program to Save Your Health, Save Your Waistline, and Save the Planet , by Suzy Amis Cameron. Want more meatless recipes like this? Subscribe to our newsletter  for a weekly selection of plant-based recipes delivered right to your inbox! Serves 6 - For the falafels - 1/­­4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil - 1 onion, chopped - 4 garlic cloves, minced - 1 teaspoon ground cumin - 1 teaspoon chili powder - 1/­­4 teaspoon ground turmeric - 4 cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained - 1/­­2 cup whole wheat flour - 1/­­4 cup chopped fresh parsley - 1/­­4 cup chopped fresh cilantro - 1 teaspoon salt - For serving - 6 whole wheat pitas - 12 butter lettuce leaves - 1 cup chopped tomatoes - 1/­­4 cup chopped red onion - 1/­­4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped - 1 cup chopped cucumbers     In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric. Cook until the onion softens, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the onion to the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Add the chickpeas, flour, parsley, cilantro, and salt. Pulse until smooth, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. With a clean paper towel, wipe out the pan you used to cook the onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Using a tablespoon measure, carefully place heaping scoops of the falafel mixture in the skillet. Do not overcrowd the pan (six at a time is ideal). Cook the falafel until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked falafel to a baking sheet and cover loosely with foil. Repeat with the remaining falafel mix, adding 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil to the pan before each batch. Serve the falafel family style and let each person build their own sandwich by topping their pita with the falafel and lettuce, tomato, onion, olives, and cucumber as desired.   The post Fantastic Falafel appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Stadiums Up Their Game with New Meatless Options

April 15 2019 Meatless Monday 

Stadiums Up Their Game with New Meatless OptionsWhether youre in it for the love of the game or the delectable ballpark eats, baseball season is in full swing. In 2019, stadiums are offering more meatless options than ever before: From the Impossible Burger to falafel-packed pitas to meat-free Philly cheesesteaks, theres no shortage of tasty ways to fill up at the concession stands. Find a few notable favorites below. Photo Credit: Beyond Meat Dodger Stadium Burgers and hot dogs are ballpark staples, and now meatless options are, too, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Find the Impossible Burger topped with herb mayo, lettuce, tomato and onions at Field Section 47 and Reserve section 29, according to Eater . Beyond Meat is also available, in the form of a Dodger Sausage , at Field 10, Loge 133, and Reserve 4.   Citi Field Mets fans can whet their appetites at the Goya Burrito Bar (Section 414), where they can choose from bean, rice and veggie burritos, bowls, or nachos, Eater reported. In the mood for something else? Youre in the right place, as AM New York highlighted. Score a margarita pizza cupcake (Jim Beam Highball Club on the Promenade),  Shake Shacks Portobello Shroom Burger (Section 140, Field Level Concourse), a veggie taco at El Verano Taqueria (Section 139, Field Level Concourse), or a veggie dog at Hain Celestial Gluten Free & Organic Stand (Section 105).   Globe Life Park Stadium The Texas Rangers provide their fans with a meatless haven at Globe Life Park Stadium . The Ballpark Vegan (near section 16) serves up a variety of meatless eats, including a Beyond Burger topped with vegan cheese, street tacos loaded with Beyond Meat crumbles and vegan chili.   T-Mobile Park If you have tickets to a Seattle Mariners home game, come hungry ! Find the seemingly ubiquitous Impossible Burger at Lil Woodys Burger & Shakes (at the Pen). This version is built the old fashioned way, topped with chopped onion, diced pickle, tomato, lettuce, ketchup and mayo. Hit It Here Café (Right Field Hit It Here Terrace) serves a fully vegan Beyond Burger, which is paired with vegan Just Mayo. At The Natural (Section 105), Beyond Meat is served in the form of a sweet and spicy sausage. Here you can also order avocado toast - not yet a ballgame staple, but whos to judge? At Paseo (Edgars Cantina and Edgars Home Run Porch), you can chow down on the Tofu Delight Sandwich, which features sautéed organic tofu with garlic aioli, caramelized onion, cilantro, pickled jalape?o and romaine lettuce, all served on a toasted baguette.   Yankee Stadium Yankee Stadium boasts tons of meatless dining options. At Bareburger (section 132), choose between the Beyond Sausage sandwich, avocado bites or the Changeup Burger (Impossible Burger, pickled red onions, spinach, guacamole, spicy pico de gallo on a sprout bun). At the Toyota Terrace (in the right field bleachers), try a crispy buffalo cauliflower bun thats served with celery slaw and creamy bleu cheese. If youre craving something sweet, its important to know theres a Ben & Jerrys Scoop Shop located in Sections 125 and 318.   Oracle Park The three-time World Champion San Francisco Giants are winners in more ways than one: Their stadium food options are truly trophy-worthy. The venue hosts a culinary garden behind the centerfield wall, from which two restaurants source fresh produce like kale and avocado. Beyond an assortment of fresh veggies, there are tons of meatless meals available here. The Garden Table offers an Impossible beef-based chili, and the standard Impossible Burger is available at Derby Grill outposts. Guests can go beyond classic ball game fare with the rice bowl (baby bok choy and baked tofu) or the noodle bowl (roasted eggplant, wok-seared bell peppers, crispy tofu) at Fongs , located on the second floor promenade.   Citizens Bank Park Grammy Award-winning musician Questlove has certainly upped the Philadelphia Phillys cool factor. Launched at the end of March 2019, the teams Citizens Bank Park is now serving Questloves Cheesesteak , a meatless riff on the citys iconic dish made with - you guessed it - Impossible Meat (Sections 108 and 120). In addition to the new menu item, plant-based meals can be found at Shake Shack, the first sit-down Shake Shack in a sports venue (near the Third Base Gate) and at Harry the Ks Broadcast Bar and Grille, which is serving up curry cauliflower lettuce (Left Field Gate).   Did we miss one your meatless stadium faves?

California State Capitol Goes Meatless Monday — Q&A with Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon

February 18 2019 Meatless Monday 

California State Capitol Goes Meatless Monday — Q&A with Assembly Speaker Anthony RendonTo celebrate Presidents Day, Meatless Monday is thrilled to share a recent interview with Speaker Anthony Rendon , who represents the 63rd Assembly District in the California State Assembly. Californias state capital, Sacramento, is known for its Farm to Fork Festival and its support of sustainable food policy, including a Meatless Monday resolution passed in 2016. Keeping with this tradition, the capitol cafeterias -- managed by Statehouse Restaurant -- recently launched Meatless Monday for the employees of the California State Capitol. If youre like Anthony Rendon and interested in bringing Meatless Monday to your community or government office, join the growing list of communities and city leaders who support Meatless Monday as a simple change that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lessen the risk of chronic preventable diseases. See our Community Guide with simple steps to get it going now. We asked Speaker Rendon to share his thoughts and enthusiasm for Meatless Monday with us. Sacramento has a great history of sustainability, including passing a Meatless Monday resolution in 2016 - how has this benefited the community? The thing I like best about Meatless Monday is that it reminds us to think about what we eat and to make choices that are good for our health and good for our environment. Meat production is extremely costly to our environment. In general, it uses more water and has greater environmental costs, including production of gases that accelerate climate change. I think we can make California a better place for all of its residents if we can give people healthy, tasty, plant-based food options wherever they go. This should include going into communities that have been underserved, like some in my district, and making sure they have access to healthy foods that are also affordable. Why are you supportive of Meatless Monday in the Capitol?  There are a lot of things about Meatless Monday that are worth supporting. In a classic essay titled, The Pleasures of Eating, Wendell Berry wrote, Eating is an agricultural act. Most of us who have time-consuming jobs buy a lot of our food ready to eat, and forget how it gets to the table. Everything we eat starts out on a farm or ranch somewhere. Meatless Monday is a good way for all of us to be reminded of the work it takes to grow and prepare our meals. What recommendations do you have for other communities and politicians who want to include Meatless Monday as part of their sustainability strategy? There are very small things we can all do. For instance, Ive added a reminder to my calendar, so when I check my schedule on my phone every Monday morning, Im reminded that its Meatless Monday! It helps me plan out my meals for the day. Are there plans to expand Meatless Monday to other areas of your community and Capitol? Statehouse Restaurant, the cafeteria located in the Capitol, has rolled out a Meatless Monday menu that they will make available every Monday. Included on that menu are vegan and vegetarian pizzas that I had the opportunity to try  - theyre quite delicious! Whats your favorite meatless meal?   I love all types of Indian food. I’m lucky to live close to the Little India neighborhood in Artesia, California - the largest Indian-American enclave in Southern California, so my wife and I often find ourselves at restaurants there.   Use Mondays to make positive change that will do a world of good. Meatless Monday is a global movement followed by millions who choose not to eat meat one day a week for their health and the health of the planet.   Join us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram!

12 Athletes Who Get Their Fuel From Plants

June 10 2019 Meatless Monday 

12 Athletes Who Get Their Fuel From PlantsProfessional athletes use their bodies in incredible ways. Whether serving as a human bulldozer or striking a ball with colossal force, their bodies require loads of fuel in order to function as powerfully and efficiently as possible. And as the athletes prove below, fuel can come in many forms, and plant-based fuel has helped many achieve great things. Read on to see what this diverse bunch has to say about running on plants.   Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1 Champion I have plenty of protein in my diet and Ive gained muscle, and Im healthier and happier than Ive ever been. Wish I did it sooner. Five-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, via Instagram , discussing the benefits of adopting a plant-based diet. According to Forbes, Hamilton was the world’s 12th highest-paid athlete in 2018 and is the highest-paid Formula 1 driver. Hamilton sites his concerns for the environment around climate change and animal welfare as his motivations for switching to a plant-based diet. He is vocal across his social media platforms about the benefits of plant-based eating and encourages his fans to also reduce meat in their diets.     Venus Williams, professional tennis player “I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and I wanted to maintain my performance on the court. Once I started, I fell in love with the concept of fueling your body in the best way possible [through raw, vegan food], she told Health . “Not only does it help me on the court, but I feel like I’m doing the right thing for me.”       Derrick Morgan, American professional football player “Overcoming the preconceived notions is the biggest part. I was a part of it. I used to believe athletes had to eat meat to maintain play, then I educated myself,” Derrick Morgan, NFL football player to ESPN . Morgan is a 100 percent plant-based athlete who has encouraged many of his Tennessee Titans teammates to join him in eating plant-based. He and many of the Titans players have also attributed improved energy, reduced inflammation and better performance to switching to a meatless diet.     Kyrie Irving, professional basketball player for the NBAs Boston Celtics I’ve been on more of a plant-based diet, getting away from all the animals [products], Irving told ESPNs Chauncey Billups . Irving also credits plant-based eating with giving him more energy and endurance, which helps him sustain a high performance level throughout games. So my energy is up, my body feels amazing.       Hannah Teter, American Olympian snowboarder “I feel stronger than I’ve ever been, mentally, physically, and emotionally, Teter told HuffPost . My plant-based diet has opened up more doors to being an athlete. It’s a whole other level that I’m elevating to. I stopped eating animals about a year ago, and it’s a new life. I feel like a new person, a new athlete.”       Scott Jurek, American Ultramarathoner I grew up hating vegetables, eating meat and potatoes, he told GQ . When I was in college I started reading more about different diets and the vegetarian and vegan diets really came up quite a bit. As I worked in hospitals through physical therapy school it became clear to me that I needed to change my diet to avoid the health problems I was seeing. It was definitely a long-term decision rather than one made for short-term performance gains.       Jermain Defoe, English professional footballer I think Ive managed [to adopt veganism] successfully, he told the Guardian . I dont find anything hard to give up, as such, because I know the feeling scoring goals gives me. So, while getting in an ice bath isnt nice, I just think: You know what? Im going to do this and be rewarded. Its hard but in another way its easy because all I want to do is play well and score goals.       Tia Blanco, Puerto Rican professional surfer “I feel really great eating a plant-based diet and love the way it makes me feel physically and mentally, she said in an interview with Teen Vogue . Many of us know the effects of diet on one’s health, but fail to realize that diet plays a huge role in more than just your personal well-being.”         Austin Aries, American professional wrestler Im usually concerned with keeping my calories up to maintain my size, though I adjust my calories depending on if I need to bulk up or cut weight, he told Mens Journal . I try to limit my intake of things like soy, gluten, and overly processed foods. The easiest way to do this is by making sure Im eating a variety of different foods every day. This also ensures I am consuming all different types of plant-based protein to cover the full amino acid profile as well as my vitamins and nutrients.     JJ Redick, American professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers During the season, my main focus is staying healthy and feeling strong, he said in an interview with Mens Journal .  Ive always had a leaner frame, so balancing my intake of protein, fat, and carbs is an important focus that guides my food choices. Ive found that incorporating plant-based protein items like Beyond Meat into my diet can deliver just as much protein, if not more, than some traditional meat items, while making me feel healthy, fit, and agile.       David Carter, American professional football player Football is a machismo sport, which is great, but everything can’t be machismo. On the field and at practice, yes, you can be machismo, but when it comes to diet, you need to have compassion for your body, he told NFL.com in an interview.         Barny du Plessis, British professional body builder and Mr. Universe winner I am the best Ive ever been. I feel fantastic, no aches, pains or niggles. No delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMs) after heavy sessions, du Plessis said in an interview with the Thinking Vegan . All my workouts are on fire; endurance and energy are awesome, strength and power are as good as I want them to be. I feel really healthy, fit, and buzzing with energy. I feel lighter, and not bloated, but Im still as heavy as I was when eating meat and animal products. Being leaner on more calories - thats always a good thing!     FREE ORGANIC GOYA FOR A YEAR Dont miss your chance to win ONE YEAR of FREE ORGANIC GOYA PRODUCTS!

Restaurant Higlight: Solo Bio Organico, Buenos Aires

May 28 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Solo Bio Organico is not only the first organic vegetarian restaurant in Argentina, but also the whole of Latin America! Claudia Carrara is the pioneer that took the leap of opening her own vegetarian restaurant in Argentina’s charming capital of Buenos Aires. Everything started from the desire to bring her children up with the best possible nutrition. Soon enough, she began to sell natural dishes to her neighbours that she would create from the leftover vegetables she had in her kitchen. The success of her improvised cuisine led a friend to offer her a few tables where her clients could sit and enjoy healthy meals. One thing led to another and the idea of opening a restaurant was born. Originally, the main focuses of Claudias research were health, taste, and environmental sustainability. First with the humble intention to feed her kids in a conscious way, and after in the way she would develop her restaurant to have the best possible impact on her society. The name of her cuisine speaks for itself. At Solo Bio Organico, they only work with fresh, local and organic products and this is guaranteed since they were granted the Organic Certification by Food Safety.

Vegan Shakshuka

December 20 2018 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Vegan Shakshuka If youre looking for something different to wake up your taste buds, this vegan shakshuka may be just the ticket. Tofu replaces poached eggs in this spicy dish that originated in Tunisia. It’s great for brunch or a light supper.  I like to serve it with a side of oven-fried potatoes and a salad. Chopped cooked artichoke hearts are a good addition to the zesty sauce and are a good foil for the spicy heat. If you prefer less heat, you can reduce the amount of harissa, red pepper flakes, and/­­or jalapeno.  Serve with warm crusty Italian bread or pita bread. This is one of the 25 all-new recipes featured in One-Dish Vegan (Revised and Expanded edition).   Vegan Shakshuka Makes 4 servings   12 ounces firm tofu, drained 1/­­4 teaspoon turmeric 1/­­4 teaspoon Indian black salt (kala namak), optional Salt and ground black pepper 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 red onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1 jalape?o chile, seeded and minced 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons harissa paste or 1/­­2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon tomato paste 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained 1 teaspoon Za’atar spices or 1/­­2 teaspoon dried oregano Chopped parsley or cilantro, as garnish Crusty Italian bread or warm pita bread, to serve 1/­­2 cup vegan unsweetened yogurt   Cut the block of tofu into four 1/­­2-inch thick slices, and then use a cookie cutter to cut the slices into 4-inch rounds.  Save the tofu scraps to use in a scramble or other recipe. Rub kala namak (if using) on the surface of the the tofu rounds. Rub the turmeric in a 1 1/­­2 -inch circle in the center of each tofu round. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Add the garlic, bell pepper, and chile and cook until tender, 5 minutes. Stir in the smoked paprika, cumin, tomato paste, harissa, sugar, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes. Cook, stirring, until slightly saucy, about 4 minutes, mashing any large pieces of tomato. Reduce the heat to low, season with salt and pepper to taste, and simmer for 10 minutes. Arrange the tofu rounds on top of the sauce, pressing down so just the centers show and the rest of the tofu is submerged in the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes longer to thicken the sauce and heat the tofu. To serve, sprinkle Za’atar spices and garnish with fresh parsley.  Serve with toasted crusty bread or baguette or pita bread and yogurt, if using.   The post Vegan Shakshuka appeared first on Robin Robertson.
