Spiralized Vegan and Vegetarian Recipe Roundup

spiralized vegan and vegetarian recipe roundup

For all of my #poweredbyplants friends, today we have a vegan and vegetarian recipe roundup.

I miss veganism, I was actually just talking on Snapchat about how I wanted to give it another go, but wasn’t sure how it would affect this blog.

And then I tested a carnitas recipe.

I feel my best when I’m eating vegan, but I do have a hard time maintaining veganism. It definitely takes a lot of planning and prepping to eat a fully nutritional vegan diet.

The best part about veganism is that I always felt like I was eating a lot, all the time. Whether it was kale smoothies or big veggie burrito bowls, I always felt satisfied.

Alas, regardless of whether I go back to veganism, here’s today’s roundup:

I too feel best on a vegan diet. Can't wait to try some of these recipes! Thanks!
Meaghan says:
It's a fantastic way to eat. We're glad you'll enjoy the roundup!
Kolo says:
The animals for sure..feel better :) Veganism is not a diet. It is an ethical lifestyle that goes well beyond what is on the plate... if you guys are on and off... may I respectfully suggest you call your choice... plant based when you are making such choice. Eating the vegan way does not make one vegan.

The animals don't care what you call it!
All of these are making me seriously drool <3 Especially those Miso-Ginger Cucumber Noodles! I've got to say that spiralizing has made it a lot easier for me since I went vegan to not always load up on carbs. Whenever I need a nourishing meal with lots of veggies without the carb load, I usually make a spiralizer bowl! Adding all of these to my dinner rotation :)
Meaghan says:
That's so fantastic to hear, Emilie. So glad you'll get good use out of this roundup.
Ariel says:
If you're looking for an extra push to go (even mostly) vegan, watch Earthlings. Watching the documentary opened my eyes to some horrific truths and pushed me even closer to a fully vegan lifestyle (I am already a vegetarian). I love your blog but I, personally, would love to see you go vegetarian/vegan again ;)
Meaghan says:
Thank you so much for the suggestion, Ariel! Being vegan is a wonderful way of life.
Laura says:
Hi Ali - I have been eating flexatarian ( mostly vegan, sometime fish) for about 3 years now. I would LOVE to see more vegan/vegetarian inspiralized recipes. Any way I can get more nutrients into my diet would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your creativity and inspiration. And if I can be so bold as to say, this - I think you blog would survive ,even thrive with a vegan/veg slant. Yes, you may lose some current subscribers, but you'd gain new ones too. Wishing you the best no matter what you decide. Happy 2016.

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
