Easy Vegan Enchiladas Recipe

Originally posted on Heart of a Traveller:
Today I’m sharing with you my favourite family meal to cook; enchiladas. These are actually really easy to make but look quite impressive when you serve them. They get devoured in my house every time; by vegans and non-vegans alike. Another plus is that a lot of the ingredients are staple pantry or freezers items and so you can often make these as a last minute meal. Hearty, filling and delicious; try making these for you next family meal! Ingredients: Main 2 onions 3 cloves of garlic 1 tbsp olive oil 1 red pepper 1 cup water 15 cherry tomatoes 1/2 cup corn 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed) 1 can tomato purée 1 can refried beans 8 tortilla’s Spices (*you can adapt these to fit your own taste) 1 tbsp garlic salt 1/2 tbsp pepper 1/2 tbsp chilli 1 tbsp parsley 1/2 tbsp tuscan seasoning 1/2 tbsp cajun seasoning Optional Toppings 3 tbsp salsa 3 tbsp nutritional yeast Equipment: 1 chopping board 2 cooking pans 1…

Most of the store- made granola is usually high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils.The advantage of making your own granola is that you know exactly what’s in it and you can add you favourite ingredients. This granola is made with oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and your favourite nuts and fruits. The granola is naturally sweetened with coconut flakes and  honey or maple syrup.  I usually make a large batch granola this to last throughout the week . This recipe yield a large batch of granola ( about 6 cups). Serve with yogurt  or nut milk and fresh fruit or berries. ? ?

Best-Ever Black Bean Burgers

Originally posted on Erin Leigh Ever After:
I’ve eaten a whole lot of veggie burgers throughout my vegetarian life. Rarely have I ever made them myself, and this recipe really outshines anything you can buy in the freezer aisle. It takes a little bit longer to make this recipe, so if you’re always in a time crunch after work like me, hold off on this recipe until the weekend. I often find myself facing a major problem in trying new recipes: I don’t have a food processor. But I found a secret hack to the lack of food processor- an electric mixer. It seriously works like a charm! This recipe in particular comes from Ambitious Kitchen, but I made a few alterations that worked better for me. This recipe originally calls for half of a jalepeno and 2 teaspoons of spicy cajun spices, but I am not a big fan of spicy food so I took it out. It also called for sprouts as a topping on the burgers which in general are delicious, but I…

recovering from an ED || a beautiful journey of various volumes

Tofurky hickory smoke flavour turkey style slices

Originally posted on Charm of Love:
Afternoon everybody, Here’s another review for you, this time it’s the Tofurky hickory smoke flavour turkey style slices. I had seen a lot of talk about this American brand online and needed something for a sandwich so when I saw this product in Holland & Barrett I had to try it. These were £2.85 for a 156g pack but I used my rewards for life voucher to get money off this price. I tried a few sandwich variations with the slices, plain with olive spread, with pate and cucumber, and with pate and spreadable Violife. I noticed that the slices were quite thin and as I tried to rip a bit off to try a bit I also noticed that the slices are a little difficult to tear. This difficulty remained when I wanted to take a bite out of the sandwich. Now this wasn’t much of an issue with me, I could still happily eat my sandwiches but if you are like me and get a bit nervous eating…
