Plant based diet: High protein foods


This post is inspired by some of my friends who have been asking me recently about meat free dinner ideas that they could start  incorporating into their own diet. For me, being on a plant based diet for over two years,  I can easily think of multiple delicious meat free meals I could make. But for my friends, when I start listing  foods such as beans and lentils, they are a little bit puzzled on what they could make from them.

So this post is for any curious person who still eats meat, and wants to explore some meat free options but they don’t know where to start. Continue reading

Plant recipe: BBQ Cauliflower Wings

I have to admit, I didn’t have high expectations for this recipe, being cauliflower and all…  I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan, but making them this way has changed that! They really came out super tasty. Even my housemate who hates cauliflower with a passion liked them. Now that’s saying something.  😉

The batter was delicious, not too much BBQ, not too spicy, but full of flavour. I will be making these a lot more for sure. They would be perfect for a party as they look really impressive. At a quick glance, you would almost think they are chicken wings. They’re a good meat free alternative snack.

Plant Recipe: Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMAG1269

I made these when I got bored last night, they were super easy to make and I just happened to have all the ingredients lying around in my kitchen. They only take 15 minutes of prep time and 15 minutes in the oven. As there is very little sugar ingredients in them, they are not overly sweet like regular cookies. They have a more neutral biscuit taste. They are not too nutty either considering the amount of nut based ingredients I used. They consistency came out perfectly, once they cooled they don’t go too crispy or hard which is what I liked most about them. They were a slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

Makes around 9 average sized cookies.

P.S the dark bits in the picture are chocolate chips, not burnt bits 😉 just in case you we’re thinking that..

These crispy Tofu Strips with some Sweet chilli dipping sauce are a perfect snack for any occasion. They also make a great addition to a salad. Or you could add them to a wrap with greens or crunchy lettuce and veggies.

I often get the question as a new vegan, but.. where do you get your protein from? Tofu is a good source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous. In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1.
