Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pumpkin seed dip

    • SugarFree_Vegan on July 24, 2018

      The gram measurement for the beans in wrong as 95g is not 1.5 cups! A can of drained beans weighs approx 230g! Anyway, I really liked this particularly as the pumpkin seeds stay a little bit chunky and therefore add some texture to the dip - you could process for much longer for more of a smooth result. The miso is fab - anything with miso and tahini is always a winner for me.

  • Whole roasted cauliflower with lemon tahini sauce

    • SugarFree_Vegan on July 21, 2018

      I love lemon, miso, tahini and cauliflower so it was a no brainer to make this dish. I didn't however bake a whole cauli as I was only cooking for myself today. I just split enough cauliflower into florets and blanched them in boiling water for max of 2 mins. I then brushed the cauli with the sauce and baked it for about 20-30 mins until tender and toasty. Served with some roasted chickpeas and salad this is a wonderful, cheap and easy dish to make for 1 or for many.

  • Yellow rice & black beans with broccoli

    • Carolynmoore on January 02, 2020

      This was really good! Great flavor. Simple and fast with items I had on hand. I used Instant Pot and added broccoli at the end to steam. My husband said he could eat it weekly

  • Sesame purple cabbage & carrot slaw

    • Dcampos on July 09, 2018

      This was really good. It tasted even better the next day.

    • catatat on July 19, 2020

      If you make this, make sure you eat it on the same day. The salad dressing separates and becomes an unpleasant texture.

  • Banana-chocolate smoothie

    • catatat on June 28, 2020

      This recipe uses date syrup, not dates.

  • Mac & cheese

    • musik on August 11, 2021

      Cook carrots in the microwave and blend all ingredients in the blender, still tastes amazing. Double the batch and freeze half and cook fresh pasta and bake for a quick dinner.

  • Healthy hot sauce

    • neab on June 01, 2022

      12 oz fresh hot chili's 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 tbsp minced onion Combine with 1/4 cup water and cook over high heat, stirring fir 3 minutes. Add 1 1/4 cups water and cook medium fir 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Add to food processor ND get smooth. Add 1/2 - 1 cup apple cider vinegar to taste. In glass jar can be stored for 6 months.
