Who doesn’t love a mid-week Mexican fiesta? Make yours vegan and gluten free with this creative quesadilla, stuffed with sautéed veggies, dairy-free “cheese” and brown rice (not whole wheat!) tortillas. Don’t worry about deep-frying dangers, either. This festive favorite is lightly browned in heart-friendly olive oil for the perfect crispy coating to all the veggielicious goodness inside.
Rather than tossing into a salad, let cucumbers stand solo with this refreshing, zesty side dish that takes just minutes to make. Light, cool and crisp, cukes are known for their high water content, but they’re also a great source of vitamin C (supplying six percent of the Daily Value per cup!), vitamin K and potassium. Choose the long, thin English variety for semi-seedless slices and mild, rarely bitter taste.
Guacamole is great, but how else can you enjoy cool, creamy omega-packed avocado? Sliced and stacked on whole grain bread, this versatile veggie makes the perfect sandwich filler—tender and buttery, but hearty enough for bountiful bites. Top with fresh tomatoes and baby spinach, with a swipe of vegan mayonnaise for tangy flavor.
Sweet smoothies hit the spot…most of the time. But if you’re craving something with a little more “kick,” try sipping this spicy drink instead. Greens and seeds come together with creamy almond butter and a dash of chipotle powder for a hearty, healthy brew with just the right amount of heat!
It’s not pasta, it’s “squashta”! Try this easy method for creating veggie noodles from baked spaghetti squash (all you need is a fork!). Top with a mixture of sauteed spinach, sundried tomatoes, fresh herbs and pine nuts—plus some cayenne or red pepper flakes to spice things up!
Living an egg-free lifestyle? Whether you’re vegan, allergic or just prefer not to eat eggs, you can still bake and cook all of your favorite recipes. The secret? Two tiny treasures you may already have on hand: flax seeds and chia seeds. Here are three easy-to-follow recipes to turn these versatile superfoods into instant egg replacers.
