Everyone’s buzzing about Brussels sprouts, but these little balls of veggie joy can be a bit bitter if they’re not done right. To tone down the taste, think small. Baby Brussels sprouts have a milder flavor than the full-sized version, and oven roasting with the right seasonings makes them an especially irresistible dish. In this recipe, they’re tossed with smooth olive oil, bright lemon juice and a dash of kelp seasoning, which is a tastier and lower-sodium alternative to salt.
When you think lasagna, rich red sauce and gooey, melted cheese–probably not vegetables–come to mind. But this raw recipe is going to turn your idea of this traditional Italian dish upside down. Layered with tender, fresh veggies, homemade tomato sauce and vegan macadamia nut “cheeze,” this raw, vegan and gluten-free entree can be eaten without an ounce of guilt. Get ready for a round of “delizioso” cheers from the family!
Pad thai isn’t exactly hard to find — pick up the phone, pick up your order. But if you want a mind-blowingly delicious dish, look no further than your kitchen. This veggie-packed variation of the classic Asian fave is made with a spicy coconut-peanut sauce that will give anyone’s taste buds a kick. Best of all, it’s 100% vegan and gluten free.
Little white cartons are cute, but takeout can be costly—and the food’s never as tasty as when it’s homemade. Stir up an Asian creation of your own with healthier ingredients, better flavor and a swift kick of spice (if that’s the way you like it!). It’s a great way to use up brown rice leftover from last night’s dinner, or lonely veggies lurking in that produce drawer.
Pizza lovers, it’s time to celebrate! With National Pizza Day less than a week away (February 9, for those counting down), now’s the time to load up on veggies and creative crust ingredients for a vegan and gluten-free pie everyone can enjoy. Golden cornmeal, nutty teff and crunchy hemp seeds make a crisp, tasty base for piled-high toppings that pack in plenty of nutrition along with amazing flavor. Go sauceless for a gourmet twist—the traditional tomato layer is replaced with light and creamy cashew cheese (it’s simple to make from just nuts and water!).
Popcorn? Check. Pretzels? Check. Kale? Wait a second…what’s a leafy green vegetable doing on your snack shopping list? And what happened to the chips? Believe us when we say those potato pound-magnets will be a thing of your past once you try this recipe! Slow baked at a low temp, the health world’s hottest veggie becomes a crispy, crunchy indulgence that’s actually good for you to munch. Season with yummy nutritional yeast and a dash of spicy chipotle powder and you won’t even notice they’re salt free!
There’s nothing quite like homemade chicken soup. I used to buy the canned stuff often, especially during the winter months. But making your own is easy, and that way you know exactly what’s in it! My method involves pre-roasting the chicken, separating the meat, then simmering the bones for a few hours to make a rich, flavorful broth. Add vegetables and spices, stir in some gluten-free egg noodles, and you’ve got a hearty, comforting soup for those days when you’re feeling under the weather– or any time you’re craving a warm, filling meal.
