Almond Milk

Rice Milk

1 cup raw almonds plus filtered water to soak 3 cups of filtered water 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or 1⠄2 vanilla bean (scraped) 1 or 2 pitted dates (soaked to soften) or 2 tablespoons sweetener (agave or a few drops of Stevia—these may work better if you do not have a high-speed blender)

1/2 cup brown rice 2 cups water Pinch of salt Honey, maple syrup, white sugar, or other sweetener to taste (optional) 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Directions: Soak almonds for at least 8 hours or overnight in filtered water (in the refrigerator). Drain water from soaked almonds, rinse the almonds, and place them in the blender with the three cups of filtered water. Blend until smooth. Strain the liquid into a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and squeeze to extract the milk. Place milk back in the blender and add vanilla and soaked dates or sweetener that you chose. Blend until mixed thoroughly. Enjoy! Stays fresh refrigerated in a sealed container for two days.

Directions: In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast rice grains, stirring frequently until fragrant and just starting to color, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl or jar and add 2 cups water. Set aside to soak for 10 hours. When soaking is complete, pour rice and water into blender, add salt, sweetener (if desired) and vanilla (if desired), and blend at highest setting until rice grains are no longer visible, about 2 minutes. Using a nut milk bag or similarly fine strainer, drip milk into a clean glass storage jar. Chill rice milk thoroughly before serving. Shake well before each use.

Banana Milk

1 large ripe banana 1 cup milk 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Dash ground cinnamon, optional DIRECTIONS: Place the first four ingredients in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour into glasses; sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Serve immediately.

Ingredients: 2 bananas, cut in half 1 cup of fresh kale 2 medium oranges (peeled) 1 cup ice made of distilled water 3 fresh mangos (pitted & peeled) Directions: Add your ice first, then the fruits and kale.

How to Make Seitan (Vegan Meat) Dough 1 cup vital wheat gluten 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast 1/2 cup vegetable broth 1/4 cup liquid amino acid (such as Bragg®) 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic Broth 4 cups vegetable broth 4 cups water Directions: Stir vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup vegetable broth, liquid amino acid, olive oil, and garlic in a bowl until ingredients come together into a ball. Knead ball until dough has a rubbery texture. Divide dough into 3 equal pieces and shape into 1/2-inch thick patties. Bring 4 cups vegetable broth, water, and tamari to a boil in a large pot. Carefully place patties into boiling broth; cover pot and return to a boil. Set lid slightly askew to vent steam and reduce heat to low. Continue simmering patties until firm, turning patties occasionally, about 1 hour. Remove pot from heat and set lid aside. Allow patties to cool in broth for 15 minutes before serving. Prep time: 15 mins Cook Time 1 hr.

BBQ-Style Seitan Ribs Ingredients 1 cup vital wheat gluten 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons smoked Spanish paprika 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 3/4 cup water 2 tablespoons tahini or other nut butter 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke about 1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce. Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly spray an 8×8 baking dish with canola oil. Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix the water with the nut butter, Liquid Smoke, and soy sauce and add it to the dry ingredients. Stir to mix well and then knead lightly in the bowl 15-60 seconds (the less you knead it, the more tender it is; the longer, the chewier). Put the dough into the baking dish and flatten it so that it evenly fills the pan. Take a sharp knife and cut it into 8 strips; then turn the pan and cut those strips in half to form 16 pieces: Put it in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. While it’s cooking prepare your grill. Remove it from the oven and carefully re-cut each strip, going over each cut to make sure that the ribz will pull apart easily later. Generously brush the top with barbecue sauce. Take it to the grill and invert the whole baking dish onto the grill (or use a large spatula to lift the seitan out, placing it sauce-side down on the grill). Brush the top of the seitan with more sauce: Watch it closely to make sure that it doesn’t burn. When it’s sufficiently brown on one side, turn over and cook the other side, adding more sauce, if necessary. When done, remove to a platter and cut or pull apart the individual ribs to serve.

No Girl No Worries

To make this without a grill, bake it for 25 minutes without barbecue sauce. Then brush the top with a generous coating of sauce, turn the whole thing over carefully in the pan, and brush the other side with sauce. Bake for another 10-20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and caramelized slightly but not burned. Remove from oven, cut apart, and serve. For best results when doubling the recipe, cook in two separate baking dishes.

Fried Chick’n Strips Ingredients: 1 (12 ounce) package water packed silken-style soft tofu, frozen and thawed 1 cup flour or bread crumbs, for coating garlic powder, to taste salt and pepper, to taste paprika, to taste parsley, to taste 1/2 teaspoon vegan sugar 1/4 teaspoon turmeric for yellow color, optional Directions: Drain water from tofu, then smash it. Place between two cutting boards or whatever you have, and use a towel to soak up the water until tofu is about 1/2”thick. Really smoosh all the water out! Mix all the spices and sugar with the flour. Carefully take the tofu apart where it naturally is too thin to hold together; it’s like strips. Make sure tofu is very cold before rolling in flour. Roll cold tofu in flour and spice mixture then let it sit on a plate (very important) and molecularly bond with the flour for 15 minutes-1 hour. Fry in oil until crispy and browned. It’s great with any dipping sauce! I served it with mashed potatoes and artichokes. I bet you could bake it at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, turning a couple times carefully. Enjoy! Source of recipe: This recipe is courtesy of a wonderful accident! I froze the soft silken tofu, when it defrosted all the water just oozed out, I kept squeezing (cause it was kinda fun) and the resulting flattened square looked like something I could tear into strips. I thought the silken soft tofu wouldn’t work for meat substitutes, but this is why it is so good! I don’t want to be running off at the mouth but this recipe is more technique than ingredients.

Vegan Loaf

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups lentils 1 1/2 cups millet 1 1/2 cups brown rice 9 cups water 1 cup bread crumbs 1/2 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup cashews, finely chopped 1/4 cup olive oil 3 tbsp onion powder 1/2 tsp celery seed salt to taste Directions: Combine lentils, millet, rice and water in a sauce pan.

Transfer mixture to loaf pans and bake for one hour, or until lightly brown and the top is dry to the touch. Create the topping with fresh tomatoes, onions, agave nectar and garlic. Blend in blender until smooth.

Motherland Beans & Rice


Ingredients: 1-1/2 cups dried black-eyed beans 2 red or orange peppers 1 large onion, diced 1 tablespoon oil 1 (14 ounce) can coconut cream 2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 teaspoons paprika 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili paste salt, to taste pepper, to taste 1 cup of your choice of rice

2 tsp vanilla extract 1 cup almonds 1 cup pecans 1/2 cup dried apricots (or apples) 1 cup dates Directions: Finely chop nuts in the food processor; slowly add fruits and dates Add vanilla & process till smooth Mold dough into the desired shape (I like the round one layer cake)

Directions: In a large pot, cook the beans in plenty of water until soft. Bake the peppers whole until soft. Allow to cool, then remove and discard the skins and seeds. Roughly chop the peppers. Slowly fry the onion in oil over medium-low heat until very soft. Add the peppers, coconut cream, tomato paste, and spices. Simmer and stir until smooth and creamy. Season to taste. When the beans are cooked, drain and mix into the sauce. Serve immediately on rice or mashed potato (or for even better flavor, leave to stand and reheat when needed).

ICING 1 cup dates 1 cup pine nuts 2 tsp vanilla extract 1 - 2 Tbsp water 1/2 cup coconut Directions: Process dates and nuts and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Add water as needed. Spread on cake - press coconut onto the top and sides of the cake.

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients 1⁄2 cups raw walnuts 12 dates (medjool are best) 1⁄2-3/4 tsp cinnamon 1⁄2 tsp salt 1 1⁄2 tablespoon raw coconut oil (it’s best if it’s very soft, but not liquid) tablespoons cacao nibs Directions: Place dates in food processor and mix until smooth. Add walnuts, cinnamon, salt and coconut oil and mix it all up, again until smooth. Once smooth, add cacao nibs and blend just until nibs are well distributed. After ingredients are mixed, remove from food processor by tablespoon-sized blobs and flatten into cookie-ish rounds. Refrigerate before eating. Makes approximately 15 cookies.

Better Than Brownies Recipe Equipment: food processor Ingredients 1 1/2 cups walnuts, soaked at least 4 hours and rinsed very well 10 pitted dates ( Medjool dates) 1 1/4 cups cacao powder(or organic carob)for dark-chocolate brownies or 3/4 cups cacao for normal brownies . 1 ground vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla powder pinch of Pink Himalayan salt Directions: Process the walnuts slightly to break them into smaller pieces. Add the remaining ingredients. Process the mixture, adding very small amounts of water if necessary, until it starts to come together. Do not over-process. You want small chunks of walnut to remain. Do not add too much water, else you won’t get a good batter. Scoop the mixture into a dish (e.g., an 8×8 baking dish) and press the mixture down firmly with the back of a heavy spoon.

Fruit Kabob

Ingredients: 1 apple 1 banana 1/3 c. red seedless grapes 1/3 c. green seedless grapes 2/3 cup pineapple chunks 1 cup nonfat yogurt 1⁄4 c. dried coconut, shredded Utensils: knife (you’ll need help from your adult assistant) 2 wooden skewer sticks large plate Directions: Prepare the fruit by washing the grapes, washing the apples and cutting them into small squares, peeling the bananas and cutting them into chunks, and cutting the pineapple into chunks, if it’s fresh. Put the fruit onto a large plate. Spread coconut onto another large plate. Slide pieces of fruit onto the skewer and design your own kabob by putting as much or as little of whatever fruit you want! Do this until the stick is almost covered from end to end. Hold your kabob at the ends and roll it in the yogurt, so the fruit gets covered. Then roll it in the coconut. Repeat these steps with another skewer.
