Quick and Easy Vegan Stroganoff

Quick-and-Easy-Vegan-Stroganoff

You'll love this quick and easy vegan stroganoff because you can whip it up in one pan and you only need 10 ingredients to recreate it at home. For those of you who may not be familiar with seitan, have no fear! It is a plant-based protein that is made from wheat gluten and has a chewy texture similar to beef or chicken. I promise it is not as weird as it sounds. This quick and easy vegan stroganoff is a good one to make when trying out seitan for the first time in a more familiar comfort food like stroganoff. Can’t find seitan? You could easily substitute with white beans or chickpeas in a pinch. Enjoy!!

Spiralized Vegetable Soup

Spiralized-Vegetable-Soup-1

When it comes to spiralizing vegetables zucchini are a great choice – they make a tasty and pretty alternative to ordinary pasta. In this recipe I decided to spiralize a few other vegetables for extra flavor, color and texture – carrot, potato and celery root. This soup is different from other soup recipes not only because it is made almost exclusively with spiralized vegetables (with the exception of the onion) but also because it cooks in only about 10 minutes. Spiralized vegetables cook very quickly so all you need to do is briefly fry them with the oil and the spices and once the hot water is added bring the soup to a boil and then simmer for only a few minutes. This is sufficient time for all the flavors to come together in a delicious broth while the vegetables remain firm (but aren’t raw). This veggie noodle soup is almost as convenient as instant noodles, but so much healthier and tastier! Enjoy!!
