It’s time for the Super Bowl! Do you have your vegan snacks planned out for Sunday yet? If you do not, why not join us in making vegan nachos bell grande a.k.a. nachos supreme! I keep recreating all these junk foods from my non-vegan days. Perhaps it is not the healthiest thing to be doing but I think it’s nice to show people who are thinking of making the transition what is actually possible. Besides, how unhealthy can walnuts, almonds and tomatoes actually be? It’s so delicious too! So, who’s ready for some football?
Kick back and watch your favorite movie tonight and enjoy it with some vegan nacho cheese! This is one of my personal favorites. It’s not for everybody because it has a little kick to it; ye be warned! Continue reading Vegan Nacho Cheese Dip
Pows! What in the world is a pow? Well, as legend has it, my mom’s sister and her roommate made these when they were in college. They took the only ingredients they had left in the house and pow! Pows were officially born. My mom made these for my siblings and I as we grew up and we loved them! I actually never knew the story behind them until I told my mom a few weeks ago I was making vegan pows. She told me the story so now I know they came from my Aunt.
Making this recipe vegan was pretty easy and definitely delicious! I had to make these because I wanted Athanasia to try one of my favorite childhood foods veganized. As it turns out, she loves them too so I have made these a few times in the past month! This tasty grub can be served as an appetizer, snack, side dish or even a main course (they are filling)!
Due to popular demand we present to you a simple recipe for a Greek appetizer: roasted red peppers with vegan feta cheese. Jake is in love with the vegan feta, I have heard him say things like “I would buy it dinner and…”, “I could eat this every day” (which has been the case the past few weeks), and “I should marry this feta and have little feta kids running around”. Sounds like he found himself a mate there! It also sounds like he has more Greek in him than it shows. Who knew? Lucky for him, feta goes with everything, and especially with roasted red peppers! (Note from Jake: It’s true, I have said all of these things. I am not saying I am proud of it but I am certainly not ashamed either. This vegan feta is scrumtrulescent!)
Remember the days of walking into a restaurant, sitting down and ordering mozzarella sticks? Well, keep dreaming. However, we can teach you how to make your own gluten free vegan mozzarella sticks right in your own kitchen! Fair enough, right? These are so delicious and oozing with melted vegan cheese (thanks to the amazing vegan mozzarella cheese blocks made by Violife/Viofree)! As many of our readers have already figured out, we are vegan junk food junkies. We love making pizzas, vegan chicken nuggets and onion rings, so, it was definitely time to add vegan mozzarella sticks to our menu!
We were recently contacted by the Greek company Viotros telling us about their new vegan cheese slices made without preservatives. For those of you not yet familiar with Viotros, they make delicious vegan cheeses here in Greece. You can buy their products at Botanica here in Patra or at Bamboo Vegan in Athens. For a complete list of where you can find their products throughout the world click here. They can be found throughout the world under the Viofree and the Violife brand name.
This is an amazing vegan Greek sour cheese recipe straight from the island of Crete! Finding and making these vegan cheese recipes has become Athanasia’s specialty! We found this particular recipe at our friend’s blog Vegan in Athens (click here to view original recipe). With this particular vegan cheese you can make dakos (ντάκος), which is a very traditional Greek food from Crete. Find out how we made these delicious snacks:
We both really, really love popcorn! Is there anything better than having some delicious vegan cheddar popcorn while watching a movie on a Friday night? My mom and sister both taught me how to make vegan cheddar popcorn years ago. Now I am going to tell all of you!
We were told about this vegan mozzarella recipe by our friends at Viva Las Vegans (click here for original recipe) and we had to try it. We are very, very impressed by it. It is truly a delicious vegan cheese! Athanasia just got back from her mini-vacation to Kalamata last night (don’t worry, I had some delicious lemon tofu chicken ready for her when she got home… good thing too, she was very hungry!). Needless to say, it is time to get back to posting recipes again!
Our good friend over at Viva Las Vegans introduced us to these vegan soy steaks. She also taught us how to make them as we had plenty of questions. They are very delicious and can be used in tacos, by themselves or even on a pizza! They come in many different sizes and for this recipe we will be using the smallest size. When you buy them they are basically dry and in a packaged. Here in Greece these can be found at both Botanica here in Patra and at Bamboo Vegan in Athens. I will explain to you how I make them.
