get in the glow

by jenna on June 23, 2011

Hey, Eat Live Run readers!

My name is Angela and I’m delighted to be writing a guest post for Jenna today. I write a blog called Oh She Glows featuring healthy vegan recipes. I’ve been following Jenna’s wild adventures on Eat Live Run for over 3 years now and I was excited when Jenna told me about her and Adam’s desire to eat a more plant-based diet. I thought that it would be fun to show you some of my favourite vegan baking and cooking tricks that I’ve learned in my own kitchen.

When I first dabbled with a vegetarian and then vegan diet, I focused too much on the things that I couldn’t have. I filled my grocery cart with fake meats and other processed products like soy cheese because that’s what I thought I was supposed to eat. Eating so many processed foods left me feeling lethargic and weighed down- the opposite of how I expected to feel! I honestly felt like giving up at one point because I just didn’t know what to eat.

For a vegan lifestyle to be sustainable long-term, I realized that I had to teach myself how to cook and bake using whole foods like vegetables, fruit, beans, legumes, natural sweeteners, and whole grains. Once I did this, my cravings for my old diet went away and I started to crave all the new foods I was eating. Essentially, I created new habits to replace old ones.

My vegan baking and cooking journey was a huge learning curve (and still is each day), but there is never a dull moment!

I now focus on all of the foods that I can experiment with…and boy, are there a lot. A vegan diet can receive a bad reputation for being restrictive, but I have much more variety in my diet now as opposed to when I was eating meat and dairy. For me, it’s about being open to trying new foods and being (almost) fearless in the kitchen.

No matter what type of diet you chose to enjoy, it’s easy to incorporate some vegan recipes or baking methods in your own kitchen. And who knows, you might just discover a new favourite dish!

Here are 5 tricks I love about vegan baking and cooking…

1. Avocado Cream

Did you know that you can make a delicious cream sauce using avocado? I sure didn’t, until recently. Simply purée avocado flesh, add your desired sweet or savoury ingredients, and you will have yourself a cream sauce that no one will believe is vegan.

My favourite savoury dish using this method is this 15-Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta:

The Chilled Double Chocolate Torte and the new No-Bake version are my two favourite sweet desserts using avocado cream <—Jenna approved!

2. Flax Eggs

I love to use flax eggs to replace traditional eggs in certain recipes. Flax eggs bind ingredients and also help the baked good rise. They also have a delicious nutty flavour perfect for wholesome treats.

To replace 1 egg, simply whisk 1 tbsp of ground flax with 3 tbsp of water and let it gel for 5 minutes. Flax eggs work best in non-delicate baked goods, such as sweet breads, muffins, or hearty cookies. I haven’t had much success using flax eggs with delicate cupcakes, cakes, or crispy cookies, so use at your own risk!

3. Vegan Cheese Sauces

I love making vegan cheese sauces using Nutritional Yeast, cashews, and seasonings. I’m always amazed at how good they taste! Nutritional Yeast can be found in most health and bulk food stores and it lends a modest cheesy flavour to your savoury dishes.

To make this cheese sauce, process the following ingredients in a food processor until smooth:

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder (optional)
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt , or to taste
  • Freshly Ground black pepper & your desired dried or fresh herbs

Lately, I love to pour this sauce over BBQ’d grilled vegetables…it’s light enough for the summer while still tasting quite decadent.

4. Sneaky Protein

We all know that protein is important in our diet, but what I didn’t know is just how easy it is to ‘sneak in’ protein into my vegan meals. I now buy high-protein grains and flours, such as Quinoa and Kamut pasta. I also love to add lentils to my pasta sauce for an additional 25 grams of protein per serving. As a time saver, I often cook bulk batches of beans and lentils on Sunday and then freeze them for easy throw together meals during the week.

One recipe that is always a hit with my guests is my High Protein Garlic Mashed Potatoes. I process about 3 cups of navy beans into my mashed potatoes and no one is the wiser. Each serving of mashed potatoes packs about 11 grams of protein.

5. Raw cookie dough <—Adam’s favorite thing on the PLANET

I think the best part of vegan baking is that you get to eat any raw cookie dough you want! Lately, I’ve been making Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ‘Blizzards’ when it’s hot outside…I think they are even better than the real thing!

I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my most-loved vegan baking and cooking tricks. I’d love to hear your baking and cooking secrets too…vegan or otherwise. Maybe you make a mean oil-free applesauce cake, a fluffy gluten-free bread, or fool-proof black bean brownies? What’s your secret?

After seeing the first picture I said to myself, “Oh this is going to be good.” As I read on I became a bit suspicious because I’m midway through writing my post today about my decision to start leaning towards less meat. I even have you mentioned already. Great timing.

Thanks for sharing these recipes. I need to get on…all of them? Yes.

What an awesome tag-team post…two of my fave ladies teaming up together!

Angela, you KNOW I am a huge fan of yours :) and I love all your tips and tricks regarding vegan cooking and baking. Everything from great sauces to flax eggs to raw vegan chocolate chip cookie dough…which ALWAYS is a hit with me!

What I love about vegan baking or raw vegan un-baking is that it’s always ok to lick the bowl and not worry, i.e. no eggs, and that I don’t have to turn my oven on usually! Most everything I “bake” is nobake and made in my Vita OR the freezer to set up.

Love the post :)

The photos are gorgeous!

Why the “no-oil” recipes? To reduce fat?

Great post.

One thing I really want to emphasize that whether you are vegan or not, you don’t have to rely on processed foods…

I eat meat, eggs, etc. But try to buy lean, without hormones when I can, free-run, etc.

But just because I’m not vegan doesn’t mean I eat just processed crap. I eat an abundance of vegetables, fruits, whole-grains, beans, etc. as well. Just with chicken, fish and eggs in there too…(and no, I don’t eat 3 steaks a day). And chocolate. But dessert goes without saying.

Sometimes I feel meat-eaters get a bad rap but not everyone eats it excessively or slabs of fatty pork a la Atkins…

;)

Your avocado sauce is probably the best sauce I’ve ever tasted. I’ve introduced the recipe to all my friends and all I get is “wow”‘s. You’re awesome Angela!

Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove June 23, 2011 at 6:28 am

When I stopped eating meat & dairy, I also ate a lot of fake meat & cheese. I was thrown off because nothing tasted the same as the meat/dairy version. The longer I go without those things in my diet, the more I’ve been trying new foods and I agree that it does make a difference. Now I get cravings for things like bananas and spinach now. Who knew!?

I’m going to try making the vegan cheese sauce and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ‘Blizzard’ (it looks amazing!). And my fiancee LOVES when I make vegan cookies because he can eat the cookie dough… although I’ll admit that I love that part, too.

Back when I was vegan, I was obsessed with making cheeze sauce from nutritional yeast. I had a stovetop recipe (that didn’t include any cashews), and it was a little bit more of a process than just putting everything into a blender and blending. Your recipe sounds so much quicker (and creamier) and now I can’t wait to make cheeze sauce again! Even post-veganism, nooch is still one of my favorite ingredients. I’m also going to bookmark your avocado cream sauce! Yum. I’m a sucker for creamy sauces, especially when they’re healthy.

I am also eating a more plant-based diet…I use protein powder in my baked goods and smoothies and trying to find a plant-based one that I like that is also cost effective. Do you have one that you like to use?

Great tips…I am definitely going to continue to incorporate these ideas into my diet!

Have a wonderful day!

Angela (Oh She Glows) June 23, 2011 at 8:39 am

I enjoy the Vega protein powders, made with a pea protein base. My favs are the shake-and-go’s: Vanilla & choc-o-lot. The whole food smoothie infusion is decent in taste and has a few more grams of protein per serving then the others (14 vs 11 grams, I think?). You can also buy the sample pack to try it out before you buy it, which is a great option! Buying the larger containers saves a bit of money per serving too.

Kelsey @ My Search of Summer June 23, 2011 at 7:38 am

I was definitely the same way when I switched to a vegetarian/mostly vegan diet a few months back – bring on the fake meats! I gave them up (along with all other processed foods) in April and haven’t looked back since!

I have made those blizzards on a couple of occasions and they are SO GOOD! Mmm :).

I find that cold coconut oil makes a good butter substitute in pastry (like pie dough or scones) because it performs pretty similarly to butter. (…but I kinda like the taste of butter better)

I’m not vegan but I do make a lot of vegan recipes at home.
