healthy vegan friday #43

Friday is here, and I’m especially excited because it’s actually a weekend for me! And a long weekend at that! Yes my friends, I get to spend the May long weekend happily not working with family. Both sets of grandparents are celebrating 60th wedding anniversaries (holy geez eh?) so my parents and I are travelling to each sides for a little celebrating! It’ll be nice to get out of Toronto for a couple days!

Welcome to this week’s Healthy Vegan Friday!

We had 52 delicious submissions last week! In case you haven’t seen the post or all the awesome submissions, head on over to check it out.

For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan and Katherine @ Green Thickies. it is a place to share your 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!

Enlightened Carrot Cake from Amber @ Chef Amber Shea

I have been drooling over this one since Amber posted it- an actual grain-free, nut-free, low-fat, low-calorie raw cake. Insanity! And it looks delicious to boot.

Dessert cups with loads of superfoods packed in- lucuma, maca, mesquite, oh my!

Favourite Cravable Salad: Kale Waldorf Salad from Jodi @ Purely Nourished

Just can’t have too many kale recipes, and this salad with the apple and the mustard dressing sounds amazing!

Favourite Main Event: Braised Tempeh with Green Beans in Sesame Sauce from Janet @ the taste space

Hard to deny anything covered in a rich, creamy tahini sauce isn’t it?

Favourite Indulgence: Grain-Free Ginger & Lemon Tar in a Glass from Vicky @ Gluten Free SCD and Veggie

A delicious parfait that sounds perfect for spring and it looks so pretty!

Sprouted Grain Cereal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Making the most of a store-bought cereal for some seriously delicious crispy on the outside but soft on the inside cookies. My favourite cookie recipe yet!
