In a video I did on Easy, Cheap Vegan Meals I mentioned Chickpea "Tuna" Salad, which costs about $1.50 to make per serving. A reader named Lindsay asked if I could share the recipe, so I thought I might as well do a video too!

These recipes were the result of not having a lot of food in the kitchen - I found some recipes on Food.com and Epicurious and adapted them a little. They each cost less than $1.50 per serving and took less than 10 minutes to prep. You can change up the ingredients a little based on what you have on hand in your own kitchen. Both recipes are gluten, soy, and sugar free, and low in salt and oil.

There is a lot of talk about the scrumptious food at Vida Vegan Con this past weekend, but I was especially excited to hear about the chia seed pudding, a dish many attendees experienced for the first time. Yesterday I posted my favorite recipe for it, Mint Chocolate Coconut, and today I decided to try making the version from the conference, despite it's lack of chocolate. I found a recipe from The Svelte Kitchen and adapted it a little based on my dietary preferences - replaced the agave nectar with stevia powder, the almond milk with cashew butter, skipped the salt, and added in a little coconut oil - pure bliss! Whether you were at VVC and want to mimic the incredible dessert you had or are just looking for something new to do with chia seeds, you're gonna love this!

Mint Chocolate Coconut Tapioca Pudding

 
I've been trying to perfect chia seed pudding and have fallen flat so many times...until recently. I was inspired by my friend Vanessa's recipe on The Green Girl Next Door, and with a few little adjustments to fit my diet and palate I came up with something insanely heavenly! As Vanessa mentions in her post, chia seed is not just a great thickener, it's also very nutritious and contains: omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.

This is one of those recipes that I kinda made up as I went along and didn't expect to taste very good, so I didn't measure anything. Low and behold it was really tasty, so I'll make a guess how much of each ingredient I used but would recommend that you taste as you go along. It's free of: gluten, soy, sugar, salt, and is anti-candida diet friendly. I suppose it could be made oil-free as well.

Raw Vegetable "Fried Rice"


I love the challenge of making creative meals with limited ingredients, especially when they're extra healthy. This recipe was adapted from Cafe Gratitude's "Raw Veggie Rice", which is a raw dish I've never made before, nor is it common in raw recipe books. I added a little oil and salt to it, but those could easily be left out. The taste is savory and refreshing - a cross between rice and a salad.

This organic dressing is super easy and quick to make - full of flavor and can be modified to fit your taste buds. I modified it a little from the Raw Green Goddess Dressing Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Diet.
 
It's gluten-free, soy-free, salt-free, sugar-free, and anti-candida diet friendly. I used a little olive oil, but it could probably be omitted and subbed with more water.

Raw Vanilla Pudding


Creamy, rich, and sweet, this raw recipe is easy to make and free of refined sugar. If you get everything in bulk then it's very eco-friendly as well!

Vegan, Alkaline Recipes from Nik Tyler


Way back in 2009 Nik Tyler (aka, the man who inspired me to be vegan) went to "two transformative weeks at The Rancho De Sol-Ph Miracle Ranch" and came back with incredible enthusiasm and energy. So much so that he sent me daily emails of the foods he had been making, with beautiful pictures. I posted these on Eco-Vegan Gal and they are some of the most popular recipes on the site. 
 
These recipes are also gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, sugar-free and anti-candida. Some are also salt-free and raw.

Spinach-Mushroom Soft Tacos

 
Here's another fantastic gluten-free recipe from my best friend Sarah, who couldn't keep her paws out of my kitchen! Though we enjoyed going out for meals, we also had fun taking home food from the farmer's market, Co-Opportunity, and Whole Foods and turning it into to some amazing dishes...or rather, Sarah made them and I ate them. ; )
 
After falling in love with Daiya and some Food For Life's sprouted corn tortillas, she whipped up this scrumptious fare:
