Hi all.

I'm slowly moving into veganism If there are any vegans out here, let's share recipes for dishes, smoothies, etc. Maybe some of you have links to nice websites? I have a little baby and not as much time to be cooking anything sophisticated yet, so I'm especially looking for some easy dishes.

Anyways, after many failed attempts to make vegan pancakes, I found a good recipe and tweaked it just a bit to my taste. It's easy to make and doesn't require many ingredients.

Vegan pancakes recipe:

* 1 banana
* 1 cup of plant based milk (I only tried cashew and soy milk, and I prefer the latter in this recipe as it's thicker)
* 1 1/2 cup of oats flour
* ground cinnamon to your taste
* sugar to your taste ( I use muscovado cane sugar)
* small drop of oil if you don't have a non-sticky pan

Blend or smash well all ingredients together. Fry each side for a min on a medium heat. I usually put a small bit of (sugar cane) syrop between each pancake to make them a bit softer.

Letme know if you'll try to make it

Hi, I'm a vegan.

I like making vegan oatmeal and chocolate cookies.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
- oat flour (2 cups)
- chia eggs (2 tbps)
- a pinch of cinnamon
- a pinch of salt
- water (if needed)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cups or preferred amount vegan chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
- a small pinch of baking soda and baking powder
- 1/8 cup grapeseed oil or any preferred oil

Mix all the dry ingredients and then mix the liquid ingredients in it, add enough water so that it looks like a cookie dough if needed.

*To make chia eggs: grind dry chia seeds in a coffee grinder. When formed into powder, add water to it and mix it well. The texture should look like that of an egg white.

It makes about 8 - 10 cookies.

When you put the cookies on the parchment paper, make sure you prepare the cookies shape before hand because the shape will not melt and spread in the oven.

Bake it for 20 minutes and make sure to keep checking.

Some vegan channels I like:

The vegan corner
Fablunch
Raw. Vegan. Not gross (Tastemade)

These are all on YouTube.

Being a vegan opens you up to many exotic and interesting foods from around the world. A lot of people say becoming vegan limits your ingredients. But it's actually the opposite. At least for me.

These are essential ingredients needed for a vegan to stay vegan:

- Some non diary milk (coconut, almond, soy, rice)
- Some non gluten flours (millet, tapioca, rice, oat, corn, barley, there's many more)
- Some gluten substitute (chia eggs, flax eggs, or xanthan gum)
- Some sweeteners (coconut sugar, maple syrup, dates, organic cane sugar (unrefined), blackstrap molasses, agave nectar)
- Nutritional yeast and cashew paste for substitute cheese.

A high speed blender such as vitamix, blendtec, or nutribullet rx.

A juicer is ideal too for making fresh juice.

Gogoquinoa is an amazing brand that makes pastas made from quinoa and other gluten free flours.

Bob red mill are one of the most popular brands for all kind of variety of flours especially gluten free.

It's good to have some superfoods (Spirulina, hemp seeds, chaga mushrooms, ginseng, seaweed, etc). Check out superfoodevolution on YouTube.

I'm a vegan since last November. I feel so much better now. Life is great. My spirits are high.

I personally consume honey it's the only non vegan ingredient in my diet because honey is a superfood and it's too good for health to be let gone.

As a vegan parent, it's very important to make sure your baby is getting the good nutrition he/she needs.

I know a vegan parent and they have excellent vegan food for their baby and I thought you might find it useful.

For babies, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed avocado and mashed bananas, oatmeal are good also Spirulina is great for them. Berries and smoothies are great. They will appreciate superfoods it's very good for health. They will appreciate it when they grow up and have good health, being happy and healthy

I wish I was born vegan and my parents gave me good food growing up.

Spica, sorry it took me forever to get back to you. My hubby was on holidays,so I didn't use my computer much.

Thanks for the channels. I can't believe how many delicious vegan dishes you can acually make.

*Watching "Cheese sauce" from the Vegan Corner as I'm typing this* Omg, this channel, I love Italian food and all their pasta recipes. What a find. Thank you

Unfortunately, I don't have a high speed blender, but I was so lucky to find chia seeds flour after you posted your recipe. I'm gonna make your cookies tomorrow!

I too wish I was born vegan. I used to eat whatever my mum was cooking until I moved out for college. Then my diet went downhill. I ate so much processed cr*p. I wish I discovered veganism then. It was a great opportunity for me to plan, shop and cook all by myself. Instead I ate hot pots and omlettes. I ended up being dangerously anaemic (my GP suggested hospitalisation).

As for transferring to veganism, I'm fortunate to have zero cravings for meat. I don't like milk either. I like cheese, though, so finding these recipes for vegan cheese is great.

I live in South America atm, andI find it very hard to find many products, that are usually listed as ingredients. It's a paradise for raw vegans though, so much fruits, veg, raw coconut sugar, freshest acai, raw sugar cane juice you can get at every corner... If I want pasta, it's either Organic egg one or non-organic egg-free. Well, since I love pasta dishes, I choose the egg-free one then.

Stuff like cashew.rice.oats milk is super expensive too. It costs an equivalent to 3h pay. You are from Canada, right? Imagine it was 30Dollars per carton. I but soy milk, non-organic, but the one that's packed with vitamins and minerals.

My baby just turned 7months and I slowly introduce him to different fruits and veggies. He likes sweet potatoes, carrots, beetroot, bananas, mangoes and papayas

Again, thank you so much for you reply! I noticed there are a few vegans on LL. Hopefully, they will participate in this thread.

Red Cabbage Slaw

3 cups chopped red cabbage, mixed into:

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp low-sodium tamari
1-1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp tahini
(all mixed together)

I think I'll make this tonight. I've had no appetite, but it usually sparks one.

Teasel, your recipe looks delicius. I looove cabbage.

I have a problem though, I don't think the country I'm living in atm has nutritional yeast. I went to many health food stores, and didn't find any. Well, selection of vegan food is very poor here anyway (except for fruit and veg). Do you know if there is anything I can substitute it with? Honestly, I have never tried it. I'm such a noob.

I'm not sure. Could you order it online? I'm going to have to do that with something myself. It has kind of a cheesy taste to it.

Yeah, loads of vegan recipes need it. Kinda want to try make vegan cheese too. I've asked for
nutritional yeast on foreigner group, so hopefully someone who speaks a better language will tell me where to buy it I don't trust Google translate

Spica, I've made your cookies.

I didn't have chocolate (haven't seen any vegan option here), so I used nuts instead.

Also, I ran out of oats flour. I just had 1 cup. I decided to use 1 1/2 cups of oats, which are in a state between flour and instant oats.

They were super delicious. Will definitely make them again (next time using your proper recipe, hopefully with vegan chocolate chips)

Spica, thanks for explaining those Chia Eggs. I would have never guessed. Being a Vegan, especially RawFoods Vegan, is like being in a club with a secret language. Ingredient lists that need deciphering, haha! It feels as if you are letting us all into your clubhouse when you explain things. Much appreciated.
