We inaugurate the new season with some salty puff pastry tarts. A tasty and simple proposal that can serve as an entree or snack. In the market there are several doughs that do not contain animal ingredients, so the next time you go to the supermarket take a look at the ingredients of the puff pastry. Surely you will find some vegan dough that you can use.
You already know that we are big fans of vegan spreads and pâtés, not only because of the large number of flavors they offer us, but also because they are recipes that are very useful to serve as starters in a meal, to have as a healthy snack along with some crudités or to give a different flavor to our vegan sandwiches.
On this occasion, I wanted to prepare a cereal-based salad, specifically rice noodles, and incorporate raw vegetables. When we think of a salad, many times we only think of lettuce and tomato, but the truth is that we can play with many other ingredients from the garden, such as spring onion and red pepper, and opt for other seasonal ingredients that we are not used to eating it raw, like green asparagus. In addition to being fresh and original, this salad is suitable for coeliacs, since the rice does not contain gluten.
Do you remember the mugi miso? It is an ingredient that has appeared more than once on the blog and that I use, for example, as an essential ingredient in my vegan sobrassada recipe. Those who once bought the mugi miso, now have a new opportunity to use it. In the future I hope to publish new recipes that use this Japanese ingredient. At the moment, I have an idea to make a new vegan pâté that will most likely take it. I will keep you informed!
It is a starter that feels great, especially during cold days. In fact, if you have to cook for New Year’s Eve, this soup can serve as a vegan starter. And if you are not passionate about almonds, you can always resort to the chestnut cream…
Among those of you who follow the blog, I know that there are many who love recipes that, in addition to being vegan, are healthy. Today’s recipe is especially dedicated to you. Hummus is possibly one of the most famous vegan recipes. In its traditional form, hummus is a cream of chickpeas, which provides us with an excellent source of protein and calcium. In addition, it also contains tahini (sesame seed paste) which provides us with extra protein, calcium, as well as essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. Adding beets also obtains a very energetic food, which makes it an ideal snack for before training, and also provides us with vitamin C.
