This plant based salad recipe is pretty simple, It has a lot of flavor and to me it is pretty hearty.
The best way to cook your beans is in a crockpot overnight. I put it on auto-shift (mine is 19 years old). You could also put them on in the morning on high but you have to make sure you put in enough water for this to work if you are leaving for the day. I add enough water to to have about three- four inches of water over the beans.
The best thing about this type of salad is that all of your sauces become your salad dressing. They are also items that you can use for other dishes or just dip them with some veggies or crackers.
I have had so many compliments on my guacamole that I figured I put it out there for everyone to make and enjoy. You can also find it in my guide How To Start a Plant Based Diet on Amazon.
Kale Chips are an incredible way to get your kids to eat their greens in a very tasty and fun new way, that goes for you too mom and dad.
Although this is a raw recipe if you do not have a dehydrator you could still put these in the oven at the lowest temperature and get some great tasting high nutrient rich chips. If I want to buy these chips in the store I would have to pay about $6.00 for a very small bag. That can get very pricey if you have a large family who all likes the taste.
This is a simple way to make almond milk at home. It can be as simple as two ingredients or you can add items for sweetness, alternative flavor and thickness. This YouTube video shows how I used to make almond milk. I posted it because a lot of people have asked me how to make almond milk. It's actually quite simple.
Now and days I usually just use soaked almonds and water so I can use it with my protein shakes. This particular recipe from the video is nice and creamy with the added coconut meat and has a great sweetness to it with the raw honey. It just goes to show you how many different ways you can make a recipe fit your needs. I have also sometimes added soy lecithin to it as a thickening agent.
Please forgive the quality this video was recorded back in 2010.
