    7 Awesome Vegan Treats You Can Enjoy Without Feeling Guilty

    7 Awesome Vegan Treats You Can Enjoy Without Feeling Guilty

    We try to eat more fruits and vegetables, foods that are free of harmful sugars, fats, and preservatives, and that are industrially unprocessed.

    Special diets are demanding at first; we need time and effort to adapt to them and accept them. They soon become a way of life that we enjoy.

    Veganism is winning more and more supporters. It is a diet based on plant foods, without any food of animal origin. The preparation is somewhat different than in the classic fasting and vegetarian diets, and quality kitchen appliances and utensils are of great help to us for preparation.

    All that chopping, cooking, grating, and grinding — with a couple of appliances, a good pan, and a saucepan — will become a daily routine. And a vegan diet always works for you, even when you think you’re sinfully enjoying sweets! In the following text, read which are the popular vegan dishes, and how to prepare vegan recipes

    1. Stewed Potatoes With Onions and Spices

    Peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Pour oil, a little water, and chopped potatoes into the titanium pan. Add salt, pepper, and spices. When the potatoes are half cooked (about 15 minutes), add the onion, and cut them into thicker slices. Continue stewing. At the very end, add a teaspoon of mustard and olives. Serve warm, sprinkled with chopped parsley, with a fresh salad as desired.

    2. Potatoes With Rice From the Oven

    A favorite lunch is a lunch straight from the oven. These dishes have that real homemade taste when all the juices, flavors, and spices permeate and make our mouths water. A vegan diet will by no means deprive you of this pleasure. On the contrary, you will discover that there are no vegetables that vegan recipes from the oven won’t raise to a whole new level. Heat the oil in a pan and add the finely chopped onions, peppers, and carrots. Fry briefly. Add the diced potatoes and stir to brown them a bit. Add tomato puree and allspice, mix, and pour 1 liter of hot water. Leave the dish to boil for 10 minutes, and then add the washed and drained rice, add salt, and sprinkle with pepper, thyme, basil, parsley, and hot dry peppers.

    When it begins to boil, cover and bake in the oven until the rice is done. During baking, stir the dish 2–3 times. When the rice is cooked, turn it off and let it sit without stirring so that the dish gets a crust.

    3. Vegan Chips — The Perfect Snack for Your Movie Night

    Take a few potatoes and peel them, then rinse them with water and let them dry for about half an hour. After that, cut the potatoes into thin slices (the thinner, the better) and season with seasonings (preferably salt and pepper, possibly chile and garlic powder). In the meantime, take a pan and put in olive oil or canola oil (remember, you’ll have to fry the potatoes, so be generous when it comes to the amount of oil you put in your pan) and wait until it becomes hot. Put the potatoes into the hot oil, and within a few minutes, you’ll have great tasting vegan chips, and the best part is you can make whatever flavor you want. The chips are a great snack for almost every occasion, but if you feel like this is too much trouble for you, you can always go for store-bought vegan chips, as they taste great as well. Most potato chips are vegan; just take a look at the ingredients and the type of oil used to fry them. Enjoy!

    4. Zucchini on the Grill — A Delicious Vegan Recipe

    Barbecue is a common stumbling block when it comes to a meatless diet. It’s as if vegan cuisine prohibits it and makes it impossible to enjoy all the charms of grilling. Meat is by no means the only tasty thing you can prepare this way. Zucchini is the real proof that grilled vegetables can delight you. Prepare it with aromatic herbs, a little chili, olive oil, and garlic. Cut the zucchini in half, then cut them into wide strips. Arrange one row in a large bowl, and cover it with the marinade of olive oil, soy sauce, and spices, which you have mixed. Prepare the next row of zucchini in the same way. After about an hour, roast them on a heated grill. Serve the zucchini cold over the dill tomato rings.

    5. Zucchini and Spinach Soup — A Warm Vegan Dish on a Spoon

    A good soup always warms and pleases us. It is also one of the healthiest dishes, as you get daily doses of fiber and vitamins and stay hydrated. The best soups are made from mixed vegetables, and vegan cuisine combines them especially imaginatively. Warm zucchini dishes, like this zucchini and spinach soup, will be a favorite even with small children who hate vegetables.

    6. Curry With Vegetables, Mushrooms, and Almond Cheese

    Put olive oil with provencal spices on moderate heat in a suitable pan and add:

    • Half of an onion
    • Two chopped carrots
    • Half of Hokkaido with the skin.
    • 50g of soaked dried shiitake and 50g of dried tomatoes
    • A little turmeric
    • More curry
    • Spices
    • Herbs to taste.

    When it’s fried, add 400 g of coconut cream and a cup of water. Leave it for a while. In the end, remove it from the heat, cut the almond cheese into cubes, and mix gently. Spray the finished rice with olive oil and add chopped parsley and chives. Mix it up and put it on a plate. Now all that remains is to arrange and enjoy the meal!

    7. Zucchini Stuffed With Potatoes — A Vegan Recipe for Everyone’s Taste

    When we think of stuffed vegetables, it is obligatory to fill them with minced meat and cheese. Zucchini dishes like this, although completely vegan, are an equal counterpart, as they are full and rich in flavor. You can also make it with rice, mushrooms, additional walnuts, or some spices according to your taste. Although this is a vegan recipe, it gives you the option to prepare it just the way you like it. Wash the zucchini and cut it in half lengthwise. The two halves are hollowed out with a spoon, and what is hollowed out is cut into small pieces. Potatoes are mashed and mixed with the hollowed part of the zucchini. Chop the parsley and garlic and add them to the mixture. Fill the two halves of the zucchini, put them in the oven, and bake them at 180 degrees until they are golden brown on top.

    These are just some of the recipes you can try, and remember, there are plenty of other options available; you’ll just have to explore them and make sure to experiment a lot.
