Vegan diets are based on grains and other seeds, legumes, fruits, vegetables, edible mushrooms, and nuts. Meat analogues (mock meats) based on soybeans (tofu), or wheat-based seitan/gluten, are a common source of plant protein, usually in the form of vegetarian sausage, mince, and veggie burgers.
Here are 4 recipes that only needs 4 ingredients:
ZUCCHINI TATER TOTS
3 large russet potatoes, peeled
2 zucchinis, about 2-3 cups shredded
1½ teaspoons salt, plus more for sprinkling on top
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes for 20-30 minutes, until fork tender but still have some give in the middle. Drain water and let potatoes cool until they are comfortable to handle. You want them to still be warm.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grate potatoes on the large side of a box grater and put into a large bowl. Grate each zucchini and squeeze out the liquid using a clean dishtowel. Place grated zucchini into the bowl with the potatoes and add 1½ teaspoons salt. Mix everything together.
Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use about 1 tablespoon per tater tot. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about 10 minutes to allow them to firm up.
Brush the top of each tater tot with a small amount of olive oil and sprinkle each one with salt. Bake tater tots until browned a crispy, about 30 minutes flipping halfway though. Serve with ketchup if desired. She likes food
1 cup almonds
1 cup pitted and dried dates
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 lime, zested (1 Tbsp) and juiced (1 Tbsp + 1 tsp)
Add them all to food processor, process on high until a crumbly and sticky mixture form. Take some mixture and see if it sticks together enough to form into a ball. If it does, go ahead and form your bites. If not, add a little more lime juice or water to wet the mixture just enough to make it hold together. Enjoy! Groundandsurrounded
