Vegan Tofu Parmesan Pasta

Vegan Tofu Parmesan Pasta Recipe Gluten Free pollo Parmigiana

Here is a recipe I have been excited to make and post for a while now. A few months back Violife/Viofree sent us a new product they will be releasing soon for us to try: vegan Parmesan cheese! I am not sure if this product is available in stores yet but it should be soon. So, we tried this new vegan Parmesan cheese and it is amazing! I was very eager to make a vegan tofu Parmesan pasta with it. This is a bit of a big recipe though. We had to carefully consider when the weather would allow for photos while still preparing everything else in time for the photo shoot. We finally pulled it off and it is one of the most delicious vegan main courses we have had in a long time! It’s not a very difficult recipe so much as it is time consuming. It’s worth it to make it though! Here is how it’s done:

Nutritious Vegan Breakfasts

Nutritious Vegan Breakfasts

According to the dietologist Dimitra Makrigianni it is good to receive the necessary plant protein a vegan diet needs in small portions spread throughout our meals; not just in the main course of the day. A fun and delicious way to achieve this is by incorporating soy products like soy yogurt or soy milk in your meals. So, today we present to you two nutritious vegan breakfasts using this method.

Vegan Magiritsa Greek Easter Soup

Vegan Magiritsa Greek Easter Soup

Easter is celebrated on this Sunday here in Greece whereas some people around the world celebrated Easter last Sunday. Easter is a major holiday here! People flock to the farmer’s market to buy all the ingredients they can as they prepare to make copious amounts of food for Easter dinner. There are epitaphs to see (and follow if you’re interested) on Friday evening, fireworks on Saturday evening and of course the big day on Sunday! The tradition of Easter is rooted deep into the hearts and memories of many Greek people as they gather around with family and friends to celebrate. Athanasia wanted to share the essence of these traditions with this vegan magiritsa Greek Easter soup recipe! I really love this soup, it is delicious!  Continue reading Vegan Magiritsa Greek Easter Soup

Sweet and Sour Tofu

Sweet and Sour Tofu Vegan Gluten Free Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe

This is a recipe I have been wanting to post for a while now. I really love working with tofu, the possibilities still seem endless to me! This sweet and sour tofu is truly delicious to the last bite! I have made it a few times now so we finally decided it is time to share the recipe because we both love it. This recipe is not difficult to pull off at all but some of it is a bit time consuming. Preparing and frying the tofu takes some time but once that is done you can read a book or surf the internet while you are waiting for (and occasionally whisking) the simmering sauce. Give it a try, it’s a nice dish the whole family can enjoy or something you can break up into containers for lunch breaks this week!

Chipotle BBQ Vegan Cheese Dip

Chipotle BBQ Vegan Cheese Dip Recipe

This chipotle BBQ vegan cheese dip is one of my favorite snacks I’ve ever made! We use our own homemade barbecue sauce in it but you can use whatever bbq sauce you prefer to make it. I first came up with this recipe about 4 years ago now and it’s been a hit with everybody who has tried it ever since! It is an incredibly easy and simple recipe to make as well as a great appetizer or snack when you are in a hurry.  This recipe makes a lot of dip (6 cups or 1420 ml) so make sure your blender can hold that much or you might have to cut the recipe in half.

Mung Bean Patties

Mung Bean Patties

I had never eaten mung beans before we made these mung bean patties. In fact, when Athanasia told me they were mung beans I immediately remembered this clip from the Office. I was pleasantly surprised though, these are some of the most delicious vegan burger patties I have ever tried. Besides, who can resit? Mung beans are very nutritious! This meal is the last installment in our vegan nutrition series we have been working on with vegan nutritionist Dimitra Makrigianni.

Meatout – Eat Vegan For A Day

Gluten Free Vegan Mozzarella Sticks Recipe Dairy Free Non-GMO

Today we are going to take a break from our nutrition series (for those of you following us) to talk about Meatout – eat vegan for a day. Meatout is a day to encourage all people to try a vegan diet for a day. We think it would be great if more people tried a vegan diet. Obviously we feel vegan food is real and delicious despite rumors circulating stating the contrary. Therefore we decided to compile this list of some recipes we think non-vegans would love to eat today (and maybe even ask for seconds!)! Our nutrition series information will be coming soon for our readers who are waiting for it.  Continue reading Meatout – Eat Vegan For A Day

Greek Vegan Keftedakia

Greek Vegan Keftedakia Recipe

We spent more time deciding what to call this recipe than we did typing it up. Athanasia’s first idea was to call it beanballs. I tried to explain to her what a beanball was in baseball terminology but she still does not quite understand. Needless to say, we decided Greek vegan keftedakia was the way to go. This is another installment in our nutritionist series we are working on with Dimitra Makrigianni. This recipe, in it’s entirety represents a nutritious complete luncheon plate.
