Pumpkin Energy Balls – Pumpkin Snack BitesPumpkin Energy Balls are a fun vegan snack perfect for the cozy season. These snack bites are naturally sweetened, gluten-free, soy-free and the perfect healthy treat both kids and adults will love. Its getting to be that cozy time of year where candy, desserts and all the comfort food start showing up. I can pass on most store-bought candy, but a piece of my pumpkin pie or vegan pumpkin bread are things I look forward to all year and cannot say no to. This is the time of year I also start stocking the fridge and freezer with healthy fall-tastic snacks and mini treats that taste like the fall desserts I so love. These Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls or Snack Bites are the perfect replacement for when I’m craving a slice of pie but really just one bite – not the whole slice. These vegan pumpkin energy balls are packed with cozy pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree, and healthy nuts and seeds. So as you can imagine theyre also great as a pre or post-workout snack. These should be stored in the fridge until you are ready to eat them. Keep them no longer than 3 hours at room temperature. You could, however, coat these in melted, tempered dark chocolate to make them less sticky to handle.   More Vegan Snacks - Blueberry Muffin Energy Bites - When you want a blueberry muffin without baking. - Carrot Cake Bites - They taste like Carrot Cake! - Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls with Rice Krispies- Cannot get any better than pb and choc - Seedy Chocolate Snack Bars - no dates! - Golden Sesame Balls - Because turmeric - Mojito Energy Balls - so fresh and zesty!

YES, we take this grilled vegetable sandwich to the next level, by adding a homemade sundried tomato spread that comes together in the food processor in minutes. There’s plenty of room for experimentation in this vegan roasted vegetable sandwich recipe. I used grilled eggplant, zucchini, red onion, and bell peppers. If you want, add fennel, endive, or mushrooms. All of those would make fine vegetable substitutes. Hummus,  cashew cream, green vegan pesto, or white-bean puree can replace the sun-dried tomato spread. You can skip the spread altogether and top the veggie sandwich with vegan cheese or just add a bunch of fresh basil or mint leaves. However, I do love the spread in this and I think so will you.   MORE SANDWICHES TO TRY - Pulled Jackfruit BBQ Sandwiches - Chickpea Avocado Salad Sandwich - Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich - General Tsos Tofu Sandwich - Cauliflower Cheddar Pesto Sandwich Continue reading: Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil SpreadThe post Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Spread appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Pumpkin Chickpea Curry

November 13 2020 Vegan Richa 

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

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

September 15 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes Makes 6 six-inch pancakes The most pumpkiniest pancakes Autumn is so bittersweet in the midwest. The bitter part: knowing In a few weeks youll be underdressed in your denim jacket no matter how many flannels youve got on. How all the therapeutic lamps in the world cant replace the feeling of a walk on the beach. And this winter there will be no escape as the pandemic rages on. But the sweet part, at least in the midwest right now: the earthy autumn breeze that somehow feels like it’s the beginning of something, the way it forces you into the moment, and really, the moment is all weve got. Well, except for Ive ALSO got a 6-pack of canned pumpkin puree and a bulk amount of Penzeys Pumpkin Spice. So I am going to make this pumpkin moment count. Today, with pancakes. Recipes Notes ~ If you have an allergy ok, use a different milk (obviously) but I have to admit that soy milk works best for me in pancakes! ~ This recipe uses 1/­­2 of a can of pumpkin puree. I did this so that it’s easy to double by simply just using the full can! I will also post some recipes for using the other 1/­­2 of the can, so stay tuned. ~ I have so many “alternative” flours that I got at the start of the pandemic and now need to use. If you don’t have spelt flour, AP flour will be just fine. Probably even better, honestly. Ingredients 1 3/­­4 cup unsweetened soy milk, divided 2 tablespoons ground flax seed 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 3/­­4 cup canned pumpkin puree 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup 1 1/­­2 cups spelt flour 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/­­4 teaspoon baking soda 1/­­2 teaspoon salt Directions 1 – In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to vigorously mix 1/­­2 cup of milk with the flax seeds and apple cider vinegar for about a minute. It should be thick and viscous. Add the remaining milk, pumpkin puree, olive oil and maple syrup and whisk until smooth.  2 – Sift in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until relatively smooth, some lumps are okay, be careful not to overmix. 3 – Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes. Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray the pan with cooking oil. Scoop scant 1/­­2 cups of batter into the pan, and then, you know, make pancakes.

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Sage Walnuts

December 2 2020 Golubka Kitchen 

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Sage Walnuts This recipe is for those of us, who bought one too many cans of pumpkin puree as the excitement of fall was just starting. We take that canned pumpkin and turn it into an earthy, savory, and creamy pasta sauce with the addition of alliums (shallot, garlic), spices, lemon, and some plant-based cream. To make it extra special, we finish the pasta with a topping of fragrant, toasty sage walnuts. This is definitely a weeknight-friendly meal, perfect for those times when you’re craving warm, comforting carbs this coming winter. Hope you’ll give it a try! Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Sage Walnuts   Print Serves: 4 Ingredients olive oil ½ cup chopped raw walnuts 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage sea salt 1 large shallot - diced 4 garlic cloves - minced ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika pinch chili flakes, or to taste 15 oz (425 g) can unsweetened pumpkin puree freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon tamari or coconut aminos ½ cup unsweetened dairy-free creamer or cashew cream (see note) juice from 1 lemon 12 oz rigatoni or other pasta of choice Instructions Heat a large pan or pot over medium heat, add enough oil to generously coat the bottom. Add the walnuts, sage, and a generous pinch of salt. Toast, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, until the walnuts are golden and the sage is crispy. Transfer the walnuts, sage, and their oil to a small bowl and set aside. Wipe the pot/­­pan if needed. Add more oil to coat the bottom of the same pot/­­pan. Add the shallot and a pinch of salt, saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, and chili flakes, and stir around for 30 more seconds, until fragrant. Add the pumpkin puree, plenty of black pepper, another generous pinch of salt, tamari, and creamer/­­cashew cream. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Stir to combine and let the sauce warm through. Turn off the heat and mix in the lemon juice. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in salted water, according to the instructions on the package. Reserve about ½ cup of the starchy pasta cooking water. Drain the pasta and add it to the pot/­­pan with the pumpkin sauce. Stir to coat the pasta in the sauce, adding small splashes of the reserved starchy water, if the sauce needs help sticking to the pasta or if it needs thinning. Serve the pasta right away, topped with the sage walnuts and their oil. Notes To make cashew cream at home, combine ½ cup of water and ¼ cup raw cashews in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. 3.5.3226 The post Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Sage Walnuts appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

5 Vegetarian Swaps to Boost Nutrition in Sweet Treats

November 23 2020 Vegetarian Times 

Choose Whole Grains Theres a reason the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend to make at least 50% of your grains whole: theyre packed with essential vitamins and minerals that keep your body running at its peak! When gearing up to bake that family favorite sugar cookie or bread loaf, consider swapping half of the all-purpose flour for a whole-wheat flour until you can make the full switch (this Healthy Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Loaf is a great recipe to start with!) Traditionally, when you start small like this its an easy way to slowly get your pallet to adjust to the change while boosting the fiber of the entire slice (or cookie) too! If youre gluten-free, consider using a recipe that calls for gluten-free oat flour or almond flour (like these Healthy Pumpkin Muffins) so you also reap the benefits of the fiber. Amp Up Those Omegas with Walnuts Pumpkin, pecan, or apple pie calling your name this season? Consider swapping out that white flour and butter crust for a delicious (and nutritious) walnut-based crust. Walnuts pack 2.5 grams of the plant-based version of the omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), in addition to 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber in a one-ounce portion. While many name brands have begun selling their own walnut crusts in the baking section at your local market, they often contain flour and butter in small amounts to help hold the crust together. Not a deal-breaker if youre tight on time, but defeats the purpose of the swap if youre trying to keep this treat gluten-free and vegan. Consider making your own (check out a simple recipe idea here) by pulsing walnuts with a date paste or syrup in your food processor, then shaping into a pie crust and freezing until ready to bake. Related: 7 Tips for Shaking Sugar Think natural When It Comes to Sugar Its no secret most people eat WAY more added sugar than recommended (for reference, on average Americans eat about 17 teaspoons of added sugar a day when the recommendation is closer to 12 teaspoons or below for a 2000 calorie diet!) And friends, beware, coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, and good ole cane sugar are ALL just different types of added sugars (one isnt better than the other.) To help satisfy that sweet tooth, consider using the natural sugars found in sweet fruits and vegetables, like apples, dates, and sweet potatoes, in your baked goods. Depending on the type of recipe youre making, you should be able to reduce the added sugar by at least a third when you sub in unsweetened applesauce (like these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars do!) Note you will also need to modify the fat amount (like the oil or butter used) so the texture continues to be the same. Boost Fiber with Beans Chocolate is abundant this season and for good reason: its delicious and its packed with flavonoids. But what if you took that decadent chocolate and brought it up a notch to boost the fiber and create a decadent dark chocolate dip to serve alongside graham crackers, gingerbread, or fresh fruit? Youd be the hostess with the most-ess for sure! Begin by pureeing a cup of beans alongside melted dark chocolate or dark cocoa powder, dates for natural sweetness, and your favorite nut or seed butter of choice. Blend until its a smooth, hummus-like consistency and enjoy! (Use this Sweet Hummus Recipe as your guide.) Power Up with Protein Cream pies and bundt cakes are certainly popular around the holiday season, but that doesnt mean you cant do over the dairy! Swapping in a portion of reduced-fat Greek or skyr yogurt for sour cream helps to boost the protein while minimizing the saturated fat of your treat. If youre still not a big fan of Greek yogurt, then ease into it by starting small with the swap, with roughly a third used in place of the sour cream. In no time youll be adjusted and making the full swap, pinky promise! (Try this Butterscotch Cheesecake Pie for a nice addition to your menu this year!)

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.

Members Only Vegan Meatloaf

October 25 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Members Only Vegan Meatloaf Serves 6 to 8-ish Autumn for Gen X means Member’s Only jackets and meatloaf This is for our elite members ONLY. Member that can handle lentils, TVP (textured vegetable protein) and seitan. And if it makes you think of Members Only jackets, that means you are over 40. So lets talk the 80s. It was a time where the only thing we were allowed to eat was meatloaf. And it was specifically this kind of meatloaf: hearty and meaty, not dry but not tooooo juicy, a smoky, sweet glaze (ok sometimes it was just ketchup), and delicately seasoned, straight off the 80s spice rack – paprika, thyme, onion and garlic. We literally had no other spices. And although this very meal was the punchline in lots of Sunday comics, who doesnt crave the hell out of this meatloaf? Its amazing in a sandwich the next day. Its the perfect accompaniment for peas and mashed potatoes. And its still as comforting as ever, which is just what we need right here and now in 2020. Recipes Notes ~ The lentils should be overcooked and bordering on mushy! Canned lentils that are drained will work just perfectly. ~ This recipe is easy, but does require some attention so that it cooks correctly. There’s about an hour and 20 minutes of baking time total. So just read the directions carefully when it comes to flipping. Basically, you’re gonna bake for a bit, flip it once, then flip it again. Then, you’re gonna unwrap it and bake for a bit. THEN you’re gonna transfer it to parchment, glaze it and bake it again. It’s easy but your eyes might GLAZE over while reading the directions. ~ I really suggest storebought breadcrumbs here because moisture content is going to be key. You can try homemade but don’t say I didn’t warn you. ~ I used Bob’s textured vegetable protein and wheat gluten. If you have a wheat and/­­or soy allergy, this isn’t the recipe for you! I love making wheat and soy-free recipes but this just isn’t one of them. If, however, you are part of a cult that believes that soy is part of the deep state, please find yourself another chef to harass. Ingredients 3/­­4 cup textured vegetable protein 2 bay leaves 1 cup overcooked brown or green lentils (see note) 1/­­2 cup vegetable broth 2 tablespoons tomato paste 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (not spicy) 1 1/­­2 teaspoons dried thyme 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/­­2 teaspoon black pepper 1/­­4 teaspoon salt 1 cup vital wheat gluten 3/­­4 cup grated or very finely chopped yellow onion 1/­­2 cup storebought breadcrumbs For the glaze: 1/­­3 cup tomato paste 3 tablespoons water 1/­­4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon smooth dijon mustard 1/­­8 teaspoon nutmeg Pinch salt Directions In a small pot, bring 3 cups of water to boil with 2 bay leaves. Turn off the heat, mix in the TVP and let it sit for about 10 minutes until soft and spongy. Pour into a fine mesh strainer and let cool. Remove bay leaves. Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a mixing bowl mash the lentils into a puree then add the vegetable broth. You can also, if you prefer, simply puree lentils with vegetable broth in a blender then add to the bowl. Mix in the tomato paste, tamari, and olive oil and beat until the tomato paste is incorporated. Add the smoked paprika, rub the dried thyme between your fingers and add along with the onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and salt.  When the TVP is cool enough, press it against the strainer to release as much moisture as possible. Add it to the mixing bowl and mix well, mushing it up to make sure it soaks up the liquid.  Lightly mix in the chopped onion and breadcrumbs. Add vital wheat gluten and use your hands to knead for about 2 minutes, then form into a ball. You might want to wear kitchen gloves for that to keep your hands fresh and clean.  Spray an 18-inch sheet of tin foil with cooking oil. Place the ball of meatloaf in the center of the tinfoil, and form it into an 8×3 inch loaf that is rectangular and as flat as you can make it on all sides. Wrap the tin foil around the loaf and transfer to a baking sheet.  Ok, now comes an important part about flipping so pay attention. Bake for 30 minutes then flip upside down and bake for another 20 minutes. Then flip again to the original position. This time, unwrap the tin foil. Bake for 10 more minutes just to get it a little crusty.  While all this baking is happening, make the glaze. Simply vigorously mix all ingredients for the glaze together in a mug, using a fork to do the mixing. Set aside.  After the loaf bakes with the tin foil open, you are going to transfer it to parchment. So place the baking sheet somewhere safe where it wont burn you or anything (on the stovetop works for me) and layout a kitchen towel as close as possible. Use oven mitts or towels to lift the loaf in the tin foil onto the towel. Now line the baking sheet with parchment and spray it with cooking oil. Use a wide spatula to get the loaf back onto the parchment lined sheet. Pour the glaze all over and use the back of a spoon to make sure you get it good and coated.  Place back in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly before slicing serving!

Coconut Date Caramel Snack Bars

September 28 2020 Vegan Richa 

Coconut Date Caramel Snack BarsThese easy no-bake vegan coconut date caramel snack bars are made with 8 simple ingredients and make for an amazingly delicious energy bar or on-the-go snack! Refined sugar-free, no added oil and grain-free option included. Jump to Recipe These Vegan Coconut Date Caramel Snack Bars are a wonderful thing. For anyone who hasnt discovered the beauty of date caramel before, its just softened dates, pureed a little liquid like a splash of non-dairy milk and a bit of fat (in this case, I used almond butter). The rich, molasses-like notes of the blended dates is just so similar to cooked caramel, but way easier to achieve. I mean, blending dates is quite a bit easier than making caramel from scratch. For this recipe, we use exactly that glorious combination of dates and almond butter to lend a gorgeous caramel note to these vegan date snack bars – no burnt pans, no endlessly waiting for sugar to melt.  There is still a tiny bit of stove-time involved as these vegan date caramel snack bars also involve toasting some shredded coconut. You will love the round nutty flavor the toasted coconut shreds add to these bars. Oats add a nice chew and make these more filling. These taste like a healthier samoa cookies! They can be made grainfree and Nutfree. Continue reading: Coconut Date Caramel Snack BarsThe post Coconut Date Caramel Snack Bars appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Tomato and Garlic Roasted Potatoes

August 26 2020 Golubka Kitchen 

Tomato and Garlic Roasted Potatoes We have a recipe for lemon miso roasted potatoes that’s a huge crowd pleaser and very much worth the little bit of extra effort it requires. Today’s recipe employs a similar technique of roasting potatoes in a number of flavorful ingredients, more summery ones this time around. We grate fresh tomatoes into a puree, which gets mixed with potatoes, garlic, rosemary, olive oil, and seasonings. We then roast the potatoes until the ‘sauce’ that’s coating them becomes sticky and concentrated. The tomato puree contributes more of a general savoriness than a direct tomato flavor, and the garlic and rosemary take the dish over the top. The result is super flavorful, and the ingredients are very simple – our favorite kind of food. Hope you’ll give these a try! Tomato and Garlic Roasted Potatoes   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 2 lbs small yellow potatoes (any waxy kind) - halved sea salt 2 large tomatoes 3 garlic cloves - crushed and peeled 2 sprigs rosemary - leaves stripped from stems olive oil freshly ground black pepper Instructions Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Put the potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water, salt well, and bring to a boil. Parboil for about 4 minutes, until slightly soft but not fully cooked, then drain. Cut the tomatoes in half. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and any of the tough core, discard. Halve the tomato halves once more. Put a box grater in a shallow bowl. Grate the tomatoes using the large hole side of the box grater, avoiding the skin, until you have a tomato puree. Put the parboiled tomatoes in a rimmed baking dish. Add the tomato puree, garlic, rosemary, plenty of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well to coat. Roast for 1 hour, stirring periodically, until the potatoes are golden on the outside and creamy inside. Enjoy warm. 3.5.3226 The post Tomato and Garlic Roasted Potatoes appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.
