Vegan Plantain Buns

These buns are super fluffy! Simply the PERFECT snack. Super nutritious and tasty. My friend Marli (author of this recipe) made them on a skillet, but I decided to bake them as you can see in the step-by-step below bellow.


Ingredients:

Dry ingredients:

1 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 TBS tapioca starch
1 TBS chia seeds
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt (I used smoked salt)

Wet ingredients:

1 ripe plantain
1 TBS tahine
1 cup water

Directions:

1. In a big bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Set aside.

2. Using a small blender or food processor, blend all wet ingredients until smooth (or mash banana manually first and then add water + tahini, my banana was ripe but yet too hard to be mashed). Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until you get a smooth batter. Set aside for 10 minutes.

3. Pre-heat oven at 180°C. Make buns/patties and put them on a lined baking sheet with some space apart from each other. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cook on a rack a bit before eating them.

Vegan Dried Fruit and Nut Banana Bread Biscuits

Have you ever had a banana bread biscuit (not cookies, not cakes)? Me neither. It was about time. Funny and delicious combo.



I wanted to keep it without choclate since I ran out of my cacao nibs, therefote I made a mix of dried fruits (raisins and figs). I also added some Brazil nut and almond leftovers to the walnuts.

Note: A GF flour mix was used for a gluten-free option.

Healthy Creole Style Cauliflower Jambalaya

This vegan and paleo version of the famous Jambalaya from Louisiana is absolutely amazing! 


It looked complicated but I actually cooked it in no time. I also added a dollop of Chipotle for some extra juiciness before serving.

Butternut Tots with Spicy Maple Mustard

These satisfied my cravings for a recipe with butternut with a velvety sweetness.

I didn't fry them and therefore the outcome was a little bit different, but definitely healthier and should taste the same. (Baked at 200°C for 40 min, flipping them halfway)









Use more panko breadcrumbs if needed. My dough was a little too moist and I added more of it to ne able to roll the tots.

Vegan Proats

"Proats" = protein oats. This will keep you satisfied the whole day, I promise.


Drizzle some agave or maple if you want more sweetness. I thought I would need some but it was already incredibly good without anything else, so I didn't use it.

Breaded Sriracha Cauliflower Bites


These bites are spicy and definitely addicting. Grab your favorite dip and enjoy. For the garlic salt, use the ratio 3 tsp salt for every tsp garlic powder. I also used a mix of almond and corn meal for the flour, it worked wonderfully.
