Sometimes you just want to prepare a new kind of stir fry. We’ve devised one that is easy to make, super inexpensive, and utterly delicious.
Did you know that you can make gluten-free vegan “chicken” chickpea nuggets with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry?
You’ve most likely had hummus, but have you tried its sweeter, lighter cousin, baba ghanoush? Baba ghanoush is a lot like hummus, since it has a tahini base. However, instead of adding garbanzo beans, this recipe utilizes roasted eggplant. The result is equally delicious. Our light but zesty meal is easy to make, and perfect for warm summer nights. You can serve it with gluten-free pita bread or with gluten-free toast points sprinkled with thyme, olive oil or vegan butter, and a bit of granulated garlic. We feel confident that you’ll love this dish either way.
This filling and gluten-free and vegan soup is still light enough to enjoy year-round, and the addition of vibrant green kale brightens up the entire dish. The Instant Pot makes cooking with soaked chickpeas a breeze – if you’re used to using canned chickpeas don’t let the prep scare you. Soaking and cooking your own chickpeas ends up being healthier and cheaper in the long run! The combination of tomato paste and diced tomatoes really helps round out the flavors and creates a rich tomato taste in every bite. The greens can be kale, chard, mustard, or even mixed! Just make sure to take out the tough core from the greens prior to cooking, with only the tender leaves added to the final step.
Normally, we think of pancakes as a morning food. However, these garbanzo flour-based pancakes are so rich that you can enjoy them at any time of day. They’re great for dinner! At the same time, they’re perfect for these slowly warming, almost-spring days, since they’re light and buoyant. You can make the pancakes in less than twenty minutes. They’re inexpensive and easy to prepare, and we hope you love them as much as we do.
Finding snacks that aren’t bad for you is hard enough, but finding quick and easy vegan and gluten-free snacks can be even harder. We love roasted chickpeas because they are delicious and unprocessed, not to mention ridiculously simple to make.
