Vegan meals

Discussion in 'Vegetarian Diet Forum' started by Enclave, Nov 27, 2015.

  1. @Galja Did you mean to post in this forum? The first recipe's ingredients are potatoes, cornmeal, eggs and butter.
     
  2. Perhaps you could start a thread for high carb lacto ovo meal ideas. The more threads the merrier :)
     
  3. Someone should warn @Kristin251 the avocado queen :eek: lol

    Lol. Consider me warned though I had a,ready heard IF you have a latex allergy you might not want to eat them. So far so good. I would imagine it could work the other way too.

    Now you freaked me out @Avocado Sevenfold , lol. Thankfully for now no issues. I hope i don't get any. Along with avocado is banana kiwi Apple mango carrot celery potato tomato melon and the list goes on there is no super clean food. Avocado keeps bs flat and great source of potassium. Given o am dairy intolerant I need some kind of substantial fat. Olive oil is like water. Can't do cheese. Between diabetes and food into.erances the menu is limited. U til I break out in hives or my throat closes I will continue on. Lol.
     
  7. If it ain't broke, don't fix it :D

  9. VEGAN PEPPERONI

    http://minimalistbaker.com/vegan-pepperoni/

    I made this yesterday and it was very easy. Only used half the spices and they are still very spicy. Subbed the sugar for Truvia.

    I had put a couple on my Lidl roll "pizza" last night and had a few with my fry up this morning. Nice too as a wee low carb savoury snack straight from the fridge.
     
  10. "Sainsbury’s has launched a range of vegan cheeses including cheddar, Wensleydale with cranberries, a Feta alternative and soft cheese - all created using coconut.

    The seven types of cheese are suitable for vegans, people with milk allergies or intolerances, and those who opt for gluten free products.

    They are available in stores across the UK from 28 September."

  12. FERRERO ROCHER STYLE BALLS

    I made these for a family do and will definitely be making them again for Christmas. I calculated the carbs as being 3-4g per ball depending on the chocolate used. Not a massive carb saving, but these ones are vegan and gluten free and the shop bought ones aren't.


    To make 30 balls:

    Make 2/3 of this truffle recipe as far as part 2 (I added 1 teaspoon of Truvia to the mix)

    http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chocolate-recipes/dairy-free-chocolate-truffles/

    When set, bury a whole, blanched hazelnut in 1.5 tsp of truffle mix and roll into a ball. Return to fridge again to set for a bit.

    Roll in toasted, chopped hazelnuts. Can be dipped in chocolate or not. Keep in the fridge until ready to eat.

    Mini gold muffin cases from Amazon.
