Welcome to Plant Based Vegan Corner Online

by | May 9, 2020 | Recipes | 0 comments

You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy plant based vegan food – try Beyond Meat products (especially the sausages) – you’ll be hooked!  Available at the YFC.  There are close to 16 million vegans now in the USA and the numbers are growing rapidly. It’s cool now to be vegan – no more eye rolling when you tell friends and family.  The main reason of course why people turn to veganism and a plant based diet is concern for their health and compassion for animals. They want to know where their food comes from. There are other important reasons too and we’ll discuss those next time.
The most simple vegan snack is of course is avocado on toast using vegan butter.  Who says going vegan is hard!  Lots of plant based vegan mayos now available.
Then the ‘BOWL’ layer meals are catching on with only the bowls to wash up afterwards.  If having guests for dinner,  use large pretty bowls.
Brown rice
1 red onion
Garlic optional
1 organic avocado
1 can organic black beans or refried beans
Shredded organic lettuce
Grated vegan cheese
Vegan sour cream
Tomatoes as a garnish or a layer
Layer the bowl.   Cooked brown rice first, then the sautéed onion and garlic if using, then the heated beans, next the avocado sliced thinly, then the shredded lettuce, topped with grated cheese and sour cream.  Decorate with a tiny sprinkle of paprika for color and maybe a slice of tomato.  Tomatoes can be added as another layer after the beans if desired.
Try going plant based vegan for one day a week to start with and then maybe add a few more days until you are comfortable with the meals and are happy with your choices.   Fun to experiment!
