Yogurt has always been a part of diets across various cultures and cuisines, but only in the last few years have companies started to recognise the need and demand for vegan yogurt alternatives!

Five Common Concerns About Veganuary: Answered

January 3 2022 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Shifting to a vegan lifestyle or even trying out Veganuary 2022 can be a big step with many inevitable changes. Its understandable that you might feel nervous about taking the leap and sticking to the commitment of going vegan! TeamCow can relate to that initial feeling! However, we are here to reassure you that the journey is infinitely more enjoyable and fulfilling than you  would ever imagine. Let’s start by addressing some of the most common worries that cross our minds. Will I have to give up my favourite foods? We might tend to dwell on what we’re missing out on.

Staples such as pasta, rice, most breads, tortilla wraps, etc are already vegan! If you like sausages, maybe give vegan sausages a try? They are amazing these days and 100% worth trying.

Hoppin John for the New Year

December 30 2021 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Hoppin John for the New Year I’ve been taking a break from my blog (partially due to a break in my wrist!) but I couldn’t let the year go by without posting my recipe for Hoppin’ John. A tradition in the South that is said to bring good luck in the coming year, I’ve been making this comforting dish of black-eyed peas with rice (and collards) ever since we moved to Charleston SC in the 1980s. Its been a New Years Day tradition ever since. Most people serve the collards on the side, but I prefer to add them directly into the rice and black-eyed peas. I sometimes add fire-roasted diced tomatoes, too. Serve topped with vegan sour cream, Tabasco, and sliced jalapenos. A side of cornbread makes a great accompaniment. I like to cook the collards and black-eyed peas a day in advance and then add them to the rice on New Years Day. I hope you enjoy my recipe for Hoppin John and I wish you all the best in 2022. Happy New Year!   Hoppin John with Collards 1 tablespoon olive oil or 3 tablespoons water 1 sweet yellow onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup long-grain brown rice 2 cups vegetable broth or water Salt 3 cups cooked or 2 (16-ounce) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed 3 cups chopped cooked fresh or frozen collard greens, well drained 1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained (optional) 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, plus more to serve 1/­­4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Vegan sour cream, to serve Sliced pickled jalapenos (optional) Heat the oil or water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and broth or water and bring to a boil. Add salt to taste (the amount of salt needed depends on the saltiness of your broth or if you use water). Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, covered, until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes. About 10 minutes before the rice is tender, stir in the cooked black-eyed peas, the cooked chopped collards, tomatoes (if using), Liquid Smoke, Tabasco, and black pepper. Add more salt, if needed. To serve, spoon into bowls and accompany with vegan sour cream, jalapenos (if using) and Tabasco at the table.   Two of my favorites variations are Hoppin John made in a slow cooker with a cornbread topping: and Collard Rolls stuffed with Hoppin John, served with Tabasco-Sour Cream)...   The post Hoppin’ John for the New Year appeared first on Robin Robertson.

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.

Vegan Snickers Peanut Butter Cups

October 29 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Snickers Peanut Butter CupsHomemade vegan snickers peanut butter cups made with homemade peanut nougat, peanuts, dates and chocolate  – a simple gluten-free treat that you will love. Perfect for the holidays! Peanut-free option included. Looking for a sweet vegan treat that is great for gifting during the holidays or for putting on your Halloween treats table? Vegan Snickers Cups is where it’s at! I don’t think I need to explain the concept of Snickers at great length. Let’s just say that if you love chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter then these Vegan Snickers Peanut Butter Cups are the way to go! Homemade snickers cups are made with an easy peanut nougat, peanuts, dates which act as caramel layer, and chocolate  – a vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free homemade treat that you will love. Traditional nougat for chocolate bars like mars or snickers bars is made with egg whites, sugar and vanilla. To make these Snickers Cups extra flavorful, I opted to make vegan peanut butter nougat using peanut butter as a base and adding maple syrup for sweetness and oat flour as a thickener. It works like a charm and only takes minutes. Instead of caramel, we add halved, pitted dates, nature’s caramel! Obviously, these are an amazing food gift but are also ideal for anyone who like Snickers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups but find them a tad too sweet these days.

Vegan Peanut Butter MousseThis Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse makes a wonderful dessert to end a special meal. Sweet, salty, creamy and light with a decadent chocolate layer on top! It looks impressive but is very easy to make with just a few simple ingredients.  Gluten-free and refined sugar-free. Aquafaba-free Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse – salty, sweet, creamy, and rich yet light and airy!  Don’t be put off by the term mousse  – this is a special treat that is VERY easy to make with simple ingredients. Peanut butter lovers, this dessert can be ready in about 20 minutes. Does that sound good to you? Oh, and did I mention that there’s a chocolate peanut butter mousse layer on top that only takes an extra minute to whip up? Yes, for the chocolate topping we use the same base as for the peanut butter mousse with the addition of cocoa powder. You will love the texture of this vegan peanut butter mousse. Its soft, creamy, and light but still has some firmness to it making it very satisfying to eat. Each spoonful literally melts in your mouth! I served these with some crunchy chopped peanuts but I will list some more options below. For lightening the texture from a creamy pudding to mousse, I use some club soda. You can also use aquafaba (see recipe notes) . Whipping the aquafaba for 10-15 minutes is not my cup of tea(too noisy) , so I find this alternate club soda much easier. You can also whip up the mixture once cooled to make it even more airy. Try this next time you have a pb craving or need a decadent and delicious dessert to end a fancy dinner party.

Vegan Glutenfree Chocolate Thumbprint CookiesVegan Gluten free Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies are the perfect addition to your holiday cookie platter. Made with almond flour, sweetened with maple syrup, and filled with smooth chocolate, these cookies arent too sweet and have an addictive texture. Grain-free option included. Thumbprint cookies are super popular around the holidays, but really, they make a delicious snack all year round. While most thumbprint cookies are made with jam, these feature a smooth Fudgy chocolate center and are especially good with coffee. What else is special about these? They are gluten-free, made with a blend of almond flour, oat flour and tapioca starch. I have a few vegan thumbprint cookie recipes on the blog (did you see my pb&j thumbprint cookies),  but these have the potential to be my new favorite ones.  What I love about these is that they arent too sweet and have the perfect ratio between cookie and filling, and they are crisp crumbly and soft right after baking and a bit chewy after cooking.  I love them warm while my husband loves the chewy cookiesz Their texture is amazing! This cookie dough comes together in minutes and once made, you just have you chill the dough for 15 minutes and youre ready to portion it out and bake your cookies.

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas

November 18 2021 My New Roots 

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas Most lovers of North Indian cuisine widely available in North America are familiar with Butter Chicken – the iconic dish that has captured the hearts and bellies of people the world over. In fact butter chicken is likely the most popular and recognizable Indian dish in our neck of the woods, and without a doubt my own personal gateway to the unique flavours of Indian cuisine. This dish was the inspiration for these North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas! When I was 13 or 14, my best friends mother, Annie (who Ive mentioned before in my sushi post – a woman who truly opened my eyes to the world of food beyond hot dogs and hamburgers!), took the three of us to The Host, a famous, Toronto institution that has been running successfully for 24 years. I can still remember the feeling of walking into the space, the air absolutely swollen with mouthwatering scents I had never experienced before. We sat down at the table, covered in a crisp white tablecloth, and a basket of seed-flecked, paper-thin crackers was dropped off along with the menus. Papadam Annie said. I took one bite and the entire thing shattered into my hands, which made us all laugh, and the taste was delicious, even if completely unfamiliar. I had just tried my first cumin seed! This primed my palette for what was to come, and Annie confidently ordered for the table. There were things I recognized, like rice, and flatbread (naan), but most of the dishes were alluringly mysterious, arriving in copper bowls, with colourful sauces and chutneys. Once she explained to put some rice on my plate as a bed for the curries, she handed me a bowl whose scent made my mouth water instantly. Butter chicken she told me. Well, I knew both of those ingredients very well, but not looking like this! Is it spicy? I asked. Not spicy hot, she replied. There are plenty of spices in there, but Id describe it flavourful. I had trusted this woman to guide me through Japanese, Korean, Ethiopian, Greek, Macedonian, and Moroccan restaurant experiences so far, so I took a heaping spoonful of the butter chicken and spread it over the rice.  It was love at first bite. The combinations of flavours, commingling in a sauce that was beguilingly rich and creamy, with huge chunks of perfectly tender chicken throughout was absolutely divine. It was tomato-y, but not overpoweringly so, and deeply aromatic with spices that I had certainly never tasted before. I savoured every bite of that butter chicken, along with chana masala, palak paneer, aloo gobi, and dal makhni. We ate naan, and samosa, and pakora and bhaji. It was a veritable feast that began my love affair with Indian food. Little did I know every corner of the continent, every family, every household brings a diversity and a uniqueness to what we generally label Indian food -- theres so much to explore!     Butter chicken was invented in the 1950s, by a man named Kundan Lal Gurjal, who operated a restaurant called Moti Mahal in Delhi, the capital territory of India. Kundan had settled here in this Northern region of the country and started his business after escaping from political upheaval in another region of India. Moti Mahal was a success, and it served several delicious tandoori dishes, that came from their tandoor oven – a circular clay oven central to Punjabi cuisine.  As the story goes, Kundan didnt want his leftover tandoori chicken to go to waste, but he also didnt want it to dry out, so he mixed leftover marinade juices with tomato and butter, added the chicken to it, and let it all stew – butter chicken was born! Although necessity was the mother of this invention, he likely had no idea that he had created an internationally-loved delicacy that would stand the test of time.  I started eating a vegetarian diet when I was 16, and butter chicken was one of the foods I missed the most. Ive cooked a lot of Indian-inspired food at home over the years, but Id never taken a crack at a plant-based butter chicken until my mom served me a version with chickpeas...brilliant! It was a serious why-didnt-I-think-of-that moment.  One of the things that makes butter chicken so good, is that the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices before cooking. This step accomplishes two things: one, it tenderizes the meat, and second, it seasons it. Because I was aiming for a weeknight dinner, I decided to skip this step with the chickpeas and just make sure that they were properly cooked and well seasoned before adding to the sauce. I also smashed about half of the legumes. This helped to increase their surface area, break up their tough skins, and allow the flavourful sauce to penetrate to the inner, absorbent centers. I also appreciated having the texture variation in the dish, making it more similar to the OG version. Chickpea Party Tricks We all know that chickpeas are fiber all-stars, providing 50% of your RDI in just one cup, (whoa!) but they have another party trick up their sleeve that I bet you didnt know about. Two-thirds of the fiber in chickpeas is insoluble, meaning that it doesnt break down during digestion, but instead moves through our digestive tract unchanged until it hits the large intestine. The fun starts here, where friendly bacteria (think probiotics!) go to town on said insoluble fiber and actually break it down to create short-chain fatty acids, including acetic acid, propionic acid, and butyric acid. These short-chain fatty acids can then be absorbed by the cells that line the wall of our large intestine and used for energy! How rad is that?! Butyric acid is in fact the preferred source of energy for the cells lining our colon, and with this bonus fuel comes greater potential for optimally active and healthy cells. This translates into a reduced risk of colon problems including colon cancer. So friends, invite chickpeas to your next dinner party - theyll feed you and your colon cells. Can your pot roast do that? Now lets get cooking! For this dish I highly recommend cooking your own chickpeas from dried (I mean, have I ever NOT recommended that?! haha). For one, if you make the entire batch, youre looking at around 4 cans of chickpeas, which is a lot  of waste produced. Second, if you cook the legumes yourself, you can control the amount of salt that you use, as high sodium levels are a concern for some people. Third, they taste way better. Trust me. And fourth, it costs a lot less – I likely dont have to elaborate on that for you If youre not sure how to cook beans from scratch, the full instructions are in this post, and a full video tutorial is up on my membership site, My New Roots Grow. If youre especially interested in this dish, Id love to invite you to the live, online cooking demo on Saturday, December 18th. Part of the Winter Radiance Retreat alongside Mikkala Marilyn Kissi, this recorded, one-day virtual retreat has so many wonderful seasonal goodies planned for you. Check it out and sign up here!  The ingredient list for this recipe may look long, but half of them are spices, and the remaining ones are primarily pantry staples, making this the perfect thing to cook up when you dont have a ton of fresh produce around (Im looking at you, late fall, winter, and early spring!). Cilantro is optional, but such a delicious addition if it’s available to you. And I like to serve the dish with rice or naan, or both. A simple kachumber salad, made with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and lemon juice is a great accompaniment to butter chickpeas when those ingredients are in season. Pro tip: measure out two or more portions in separate containers of the spice mix when youre making it the first time so the next time all you have to do is grab the blend instead of all your individual spice jars!   And what about the butter?! Well, there isnt any classic dairy butter here (although there is no shame in adding it!), instead I used cashew butter to achieve that crave-able creaminess. Some recipes for butter chicken call for whole cashews, which may in fact be easier for some of you to find than cashew butter. If that is the case, sub the cashew butter with whole, raw cashews that have been soaked for 4-8 hours, and add them to the pot with the tomatoes and coconut milk in step 3. If you’d like to know more about soaking and activating nuts, check out my article here.

Print North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas  Author Sarah Britton Ingredients2 Tbsp. coconut oil preferably expeller-pressed or ghee 1 Tbsp. ground cumin 1 Tbsp. ground coriander 2 tsp. ground turmeric 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 Tbsp. garam masala 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/­­2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper pinch cayenne to taste 1 large yellow onion diced 2 tsp. fine sea salt 5 cloves garlic minced 28 oz. /­­ 796ml whole or diced tomatoes 1 large can 3 Tbsp. tomato paste 1 cup /­­ 250ml full-fat coconut milk 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml cashew butter 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 6 cups /­­ 900g cooked chickpeas from 2 cups dried /­­ approx. 4 cans cilantro for garnish if desired rice and /­­ or naan for serving if desired InstructionsIn a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, smoked paprika, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir well to mix with the oil, and stir frequently so it doesnt scorch.   Add the onion and salt, stir well to coat, let cook for 5-10 minutes until the onions have softened slightly. Add the garlic, stir well,  and cook for 2-3 more minutes.  Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and coconut milk, stirring well to incorporate. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.  While the sauce is simmering, take about half of the chickpeas and smash them flat with the bottom of a drinking glass. This step is optional, but it changes the shape and texture of the chickpeas (see headnote). Transfer the sauce to a blender, add the cashew butter and lemon juice, then blend on high until completely smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired (if youd like it spicier for example, add more cayenne).  Add all of the chickpeas to the sauce and fold to combine. Bring a very light simmer, and let cook for 5 minutes, up to an hour, making sure to stir every so often so the bottom doesnt scorch.  Serve the butter chickpeas over rice with lots of fresh cilantro, and naan if desired. Say thank you and enjoy! NotesServes 8-10 I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, and find the same satisfying coziness with each bite you enjoy. As we head into the darker, colder months of the year, I know Ill be turning to these butter chickpeas to keep me warm and grounded, while picturing us at our stoves, connected in spirit over steaming pots and nourishing bowls. All love from me to you, Sarah B  The post North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas appeared first on My New Roots.

The Happy Cowmunity boasts over 540 city ambassadors around the world! From Dubai to Sydney and everywhere in between, our stellar HappyCow ambassadors know the best vegan eats in town. This month, were spotlighting Tonya Kay from Los Angeles, California. The professional dancer, actress, and filmmaker travels extensively for work, so we sat down with her to glean all we can about how to travel and eat well as a vegan on the road.  28 Years Vegan Kay recently celebrated her 28th veganversary, and she couldnt be more excited to see what the next 28 years of plant-based eating will bring. The entertainer adopted the vegan diet while on tour with the legendary musician, Kenny Rogers. She had her foot in the door already--shed been a vegetarian for 10 years and was acutely conscious of what was actually in food. One night, tired but unable to sleep, the tour bus pulled over and all she could find to eat was packaged, processed food. Sleep-deprived and hangry, she decided to go vegan on the spot as an FU to The System for allowing entire stores to be filled with consciousness-altering and physically-altering control agents instead of real food. Of course, she […] The post HappyCow Ambassador Spotlight: Tonya Kay appeared first on HappyCow.

Vegan Whole Wheat Date Ladoo

October 17 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Whole Wheat Date LadooFor a sweet festival treat that is naturally sweetened, try my Whole Wheat Date Ladoo recipe. A wholesome vegan twist on a traditional Indian sweet made with whole wheat flour, almond flour, nuts, and dates! Soy-free + Gluten-free option. Try these Date sweetened Wheat ladoo (atte ka laddu) for the festive season without all the ghee and cups of sugar! They are quick and easy to make and are great for gifting, too. What is Laddu or Ladoo? The term laddu or ladoo stands for sweetened round balls usually made from flour, sugar/­­ jaggery, and ghee or oil! As for flavorings, nuts and spices like cardamon, saffron tend to be included and as you can imagine, Indian cuisine offers a variety of laddu recipes for all occasions. Some using besan, others semolina (Rava), whole wheat flour, or various millet flours, rice flours, etc! Just here on the blog, you actually already find many different types, made with a variety of flavors, like these coconut ones. YUM! Today we make atta ladoo.  Traditional wheat ladoo recipes call for ghee and wheat flour.  I have previously even made oil-free Ladoos using a maple syrup and those work out amazing as well. For this date ladoo recipe, we use a blend of whole wheat flour, almond flour, and flax meal which makes these taste nutty and wholesome. I like flavoring these with cardamom – a spice which you should always use sparingly and work your way up if need be. Some chopped cashews make these richer and melted vegan butter is added for moisture and texture but these would actually even work with oil instead of butter or no oil at all.   MORE DIWALI SWEETS - Coconut Ladoo - Vegan Rabri Recipe – Indian Milk Pudding - Vegan Malai Burfi - Mango Sheera /­­ Halwa  - Mango Burfi  - Kesar Peda - Rasmalai Cake Also make sure to check out my round-up post on Vegan Indian Sweets for more inspiration.Continue reading: Vegan Whole Wheat Date LadooThe post Vegan Whole Wheat Date Ladoo appeared first on Vegan Richa.
