Not eating enough? I'm a newish vegetarian and I find myself so hungry all the time. I've been incorporating veggies high in protein and fiber as often as possible,but it seems like it's not enough! Does anyone else have this issue? What else can I do to keep myself full? Post Date: 06/26/17, Replies: 4 06/26/17 4
Leftover rice Not sure what to do with leftover rice? Preferably white rice… One trick I learned is to mix the rice with coconut milk, cinnamon, dates/raisins and/or bananas to make a delicious rice pudding dessert. Any other ideas? Post Date: 06/23/17, Replies: 3 06/23/17 3

Lost a treasured salad dressing recipe In a now-discontinued vegan forum many years ago, someone posted a delicious salad dressing recipe and I have lost it. It was a "ranch-type" dressing and the original recipe began with a girl's name. I remember a few ingredients - raw cashews, apple cider vinegar, sweetener of some kind. Does anyone recall a recipe like this? Thanks! Post Date: 05/20/17, Replies: 5 05/20/17 5

Vegan Newbie: Pancake Help! I was so happy to discover that my favorite packaged pancake mix, Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix, was vegan in itself! So instead of using the milk, eggs, and butter, I used almond milk, aquafaba, and earth balance soy free. The mix looked great, so I fried up in coconut oil as usual, but they stuck to the pan like cement!!!!! I couldn't even get my silicone spatula under them. Am I missing something? Again, newbie vegan here. Thanks all! Post Date: 04/17/17, Replies: 1 04/17/17 1

Macaroni Fail Hello all, I'm struggling with finding the best Vegan Sub. for Macaroni and Cheese any good recipes? It is my favorite food to eat. I use to make a Baked White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese Dish. Its hard enough giving up dairy. Giving up my favorite food is even harder. What are the best tasting Vegan Cheeses? I tried Daiya Cheddar Slices. It has a strange after taste. I could not eat it by itself. Can someone please point in the right direction? Post Date: 03/26/17, Replies: 4 03/26/17 4
Like Moroccan food? I hope this isn't considered spammy, but we just thought we'd let you all know about our new website : We're a small team of veggies based in Algeria (North Africa) and let's just say, being veggie is pretty tricky here. Imagine a world with no soy, no tofu, no quinoa, no seitan, no dairy alternatives and you get an idea of what we're up against. So we decided to launch our website showcasing North African cuisine made with locally available ingredients :) It's actually suited to anyone anywhere in the world who likes authentic North African cuisine, especially if you're living somewhere without a health food store! We encourage you to take a look, and if you have five minutes, head over to the Algeria Web Awards ( and give us a quick vote to spread the word about our cause. Best wishes, HappyHmisa P.S. We're also doing what we can to update the Happy Cow database with any restaurants out here that offer veggie food. There aren't too many yet, but we're working on it!

What's a good dressing for this salad? Just made this awesome salad and need some fresh ideas for a dressing? I was thinking about letting it swim around in the juices of my bloody rare steak while I tear it apart with my bare hands. Then feed the salad to the chooks cause salads for rabbits and chickens get a piece of steak up ya Post Date: 03/18/17, Replies: 0 03/18/17 0
Celebration Okay firstly a confession: I personally am not currently a vegetarian I'm working towards it however my best friend is a Vegan. I am so proud of her because this time last year she decided to turn vegan and she has come so far and done so well, it is also her 20th Birthday coming up. As she adores Alice in Wonderland, as a surprise both for her birthday and her year of being a committed vegan, I wanted to give my friend her very own Mad Hatter Tea Party. The only issue I have is I really have no idea what sort of things to make for her to eat. There are some incredible cake recipes out there (I know I've tried them with her) but in terms of savoury food we can have as afternoon tea and pick at, I don't know where to start and honestly any advice would be warmly welcomed.

vegan chocolate cake and frosting disaster Hello!! I am trying to make a vegan chocolate cake and vegan chocolate frosting with no success! I have tried earth balance for butter replacement, the one with soy (yellow box) and without soy (red box). Cakes taste kid of salty/oily/weird/fishy but if I add a lot of cocoa powder and pure vanilla extract, they can be edible... kind of. The major problem I have is with frosting! There is no way earth balance can decently substitute butter. Frosting tastes bad, real bad. I experimented again tonight with both cake and frosting. Cake as usual is oily and salty, frosting is horrible! I refrigerated for a couple of hours and it now even tastes a bit bitter. Definitely not something to serve to any guest!! I made the frosting with half shortening and half earth balance stick, added a lot of powdered sugar, much more than the recipe called for, a lot of pure vanilla extract and adjusted consistency with coconut milk. I need help!!! what do you normally use for frosting? Do you know of another brand I can try? Am I doing anything wrong? I cannot use coconut spread as I live in Florida and it will melt before my eyes, here it doesn't keep in solid form at room temperature. Any help is much appreciated!! Thank you!!

Cashew Chia Seeds Pudding Recipe Makes 2-4 servings Ingredients ¼ cup chia seeds 1 cup cashews 2 cups water pinch of salt 1 tbsp. raw honey or agave nectar Directions 1. Prepare the cashew milk: Put 1 cup cashews, 2 cups water, a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of natural sweetener of your choice. Raw honey or agave nectar are my favorites. 2. Blend ingredients on high for about 90 seconds. 3. Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag or a strainer. This recipe yields two cups of milk and will last in the fridge for four days. 4. Put the seeds in a bowl and stir in 1 cup of milk. 5. Whisk together with until the seeds are well incorporated – about 10 minutes. The pudding will get clumpy if you don’t keep stirring. You’ll know it’s ready when it sets and gets a pudding-like texture. 6. Add the toppings of our choice – chopped apples, pitted cherries, chopped pecans, currants, or raisins are all great options. Kitchen notes You can experiment with the consistency by adding more chia seeds or more milk, but the general ratio is 4:1 (milk: chia) You can substitute the cashew milk for almond milk To save time, make a bigger batch and save it in the refrigerator for 4 days For a sweeter pudding stir in ½ teaspoon vanilla, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon maple syrup Nutritional facts Calories: 203kcal Total fat: 11.39g Total dietary fiber: 12.24g Protein: 5.62g Total sugars: 6.53g Sodium: 5mg Calcium: 189mg Phosphorus: 284mg Potassium: 48mg Zinc: 1.05mg Copper: 0.06mg Manganese: 0.65mg Source: Post Date: 03/22/16, Replies: 1 03/22/16 1

Shelf life Hello, I have a tough question: recently I started to make vegan ganache at home. I think that the most appropriate substitution for heavy cream is "almond cream" (almond milk with a lot a almonds and a bit of water: around 25% fat). It tastes delicious but the problem is shelf life: after a few days it loses its taste. I don't know if is the almond cream or the fresh fruits I use for the ganache. So, someone have a suggestion? Thank's Post Date: 03/06/16, Replies: 1 03/06/16 1
