healthy vegan friday #2

the veggie nook

Hello again and welcome to the second edition of Healthy Vegan Fridays! Last week was a great success and I want to thank each and every one of you for your submissions and for reading. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a new weekly blog hop focusing on healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!

This blog party is hosted by three vegan food bloggers:

Now before I get into the specifics of linking up again, I want to highlight the 3 most popular recipes from last week as well as 3 I chose to highlight myself!

Most Popular Recipes

My submission of Two Healthy Oatmeal Cookies was actually clicked on the most (oops), but these are the next 3 fabulous submissions from you guys. Make sure to check them out if you haven’t already!

Breakfast Brownies and Jam by Lou @ fridge scrapings

Dessert for breakfast? yes please!

Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad by Micha @ blissful bites

So many good flavours going on in this salad and so nourishing!

Chocolate Kale Granola by Ali @ Farmers Market Vegan

Making us more efficient eaters- forget topping your green smoothie with granola, this one combines both goodies in one! So creative!

My Featured Recipes

There were so many amazing ones it was really hard to choose just 3. I’ve decided to do this by categories to make it more fun and interesting…

Favourite Main Event: Creamy Thai Cilantro Ginger Sauce by Janet @ the taste space

I want to smother this sauce on everything- noodles, wraps salads, you name it!

Favourite Sensible Snack: Roasted Sprouted Chickpeas with Turmeric by Richa @ Vegan Richa

A much better (and I bet tastier) alternative to traditional crunchy snacks!

Favourite Indulgence:  Peach & "Mascarpone" Tart from Ricki @ Diet, Desserts and Dogs

A vegan mascarpone filling paired with delicious stone fruits sounds just perfect for a summer evening!

Now I hope you are all excited to get your submissions in for this week!

My submission for this week:

My Raw Banana Granola– no oil and no sigar!

Here’s the guidelines. I just want to highlight that we ask bloggers to put a link for HVF on their post- this helps to spread the blog love!

  22. hey i know this isn’t what your post is about. but i just wanted to say congratulations on having your recipe featured yesterday. i don’t even remember the forum, but i went and saw your name and was like, ‘damn that girls’ famous.’ :) perhaps this happens to you all the time – but if it were me i would be freaking out. so congrats either way!

    • Oh thanks Sara! It was Foodbuzz, in their healthy section :) Ya I was super shocked and happy! Thanks so much for the congrats, I really appreciate it.

      I could get used to this “fame” business ;)

  23. I loved all the recipes last week especially the brownies with the jam. I since made a version of the jam so it really inspired me and was gorgeous and healthy. I also loved the look of the chocolate kale granola. I made kale chips with coconut the other day so I’m getting more adventurous with kale.
    This week I have shared 2 very fresh summer green smoothie recipes. The sun dream smoothie is loved by everyone that I give it to and it’s my favourite summer recipe that I’ve tried so far. I also talk about my first experience fasting and my weight loss second time around losing baby weight.
    Many thanks for hosting Gabby.

    • That’s so great Katherine, I’m glad you got inspired! 

      Thanks for submitting your green smoothies- you really can’t drink too many of them in the summer!
