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.

air fried shrimp tacos with pineapple mango salsa and guacamole, another meal made fully from a @wholefoods shop! 🌮🍍🥑🍤⁣

~ corn tortillas⁣
~ guacamole⁣
~ pineapple & mango salsa (fresh prepared foods)⁣
~ sliced red cabbage (pre-sliced container)⁣
~ @sirkensingtons chile lime crema⁣
~ cleaned & deveined shrimp ⁣
~ panko breadcrumbs ⁣

preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. dredge the shrimp in egg and dip in panko (toss the panko with paprika, onion, chili, & garlic powder, salt, and cumin.) add in a single layer to the air fryer and cook for 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through (they’re done when golden brown and C-shaped.) spread some guacamole on the tortillas and top with shrimp, cabbage tossed with juiced lime, pineapple mango salsa, and drizzle with the bottled crema. easy peasy! 👏🏼 ⁣

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

do you like easy meal ideas like this from specific grocery stores? 🤔 I'll start a hashtag for them - this one will be #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
