I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but I'm looking for some book recommendations for someone on why animal products are bad/unhealthy and what foods are good to eat and why. A healthy eating book, if you will. I used to have one but can't remember what it was, so I'm just looking for any good ones.
Also, any recommendations for a *healthy* vegan cookbook? Healthy is important as I am cutting out processed foods.
I would love some ideas on dry beans. I make them a lot in the crock pot. What do you season with?
I hope the first questions were allowed. Thank you for any help!
I have half a pot of leftover sticky rice. Aside from stir-fry/fried rice what can be done with it? Maybe something sweet?
Craving a new spaghetti recipe last night, I made this for dinner. It was really fast and really delish!! You can add whatever greens you like to the "mince". I used kale and zuchinni.. mmmm!
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, crushed
100g carrots (about 3), finely sliced
1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
75g mushrooms, chopped
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup walnuts
Handful of fresh basil leaves
250g dried spaghetti
Method: How to make vegan bolognese
1. Put carrots, onion, kale, zuchinni, pepper, and walnuts in a blender, and blend until you've got a mince-like texture
2. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the garlic and fry for a few minutes to soften but not colour. Add the blended ingredients and cook for 5 minutes, adding the salt. Then add the crushed tomatoes, ketchup and basil leaves and bring to a boil. Then, stir into pasta and enjoy!!
I've been baking using soy milk + vinegar as a buttermilk sub, but I'm trying to stop using soy milk. Would almond or oat milk work for this, or does it HAVE to be soy? If it has to be soy, does anyone have a soy-free way of making something like buttermilk? Thanks!
so i've made veggie soup plenty of times - saute onions and garlic, add veggie broth and frozen veggies + thyme and a bay leaf and you've got soup. Except this time I tried trader joe's broth and it's just awful. i usually love TJs but this stuff is badbadbad. I usually use regular grocery store stuff but I'm out. I poured out the broth and added water + bouillon cube, salt, pepper, thyme, another bayleaf. still tastes bland. how can I save this soup?! I've got fairly normal staples..
