10 Unmissable Recipes Recommended By Popular Vegan Bloggers

It is fall and you’re a vegetarian – everyone seems to be cooking only meat, you have gotten pretty tired of the vegan meals you know how to prepare and you have run out of ideas to try out something new.

Ariel Knutson of “The Kitchn” asked her favorite vegan bloggers to share their most popular vegan recipes on their site. So they took a time off from the world of optimizations and analytics to share their wonderful recipes.

Here below we present you 10 unmissable recipes as recommended by those popular vegan bloggers, which originally appeared in The Kitchn. One thing to observe is that kale, squash and lentils are recurrent themes in these recipes.

1. Lacinato Kale and Pecorino Salad (101 Cookbooks)

1

    This salad is easy to prepare without being plainly obvious. Pecorino cheese, toasted pecans and shredded Brussels sprouts are added to finely minced Lucinato kale. It fits perfectly with the season as well.

    Meanwhile, lemon-tahini dressing is used to enhance the taste and take rawness off of the kale. It’s a great way to enjoy dinner. It’ll be even better if you choose pebbly leafed and dark Lucinato kale. (Click here to view recipe.)

    2. Spaghetti Squash Noodle Bowl with Lime Peanut Sauce (The First Mess)

      This very unique and palatable recipe requires spaghetti squash, nuts, some broccoli and kale along with peanut sauce and lime. It’s a perfect way to treat yourself and your loved ones for the lunch.

      Although the list of ingredients required to prepare this recipe seems to be rather long, most of the ingredients are easy to find and you’ll notice that you already have most of them in your kitchen. (Click here to view recipe.)

      3. Summer Vegetarian Tacos with Avocado Cream (Naturally Ella)

      3

        This easy and perfect recipe for dinner only requires you to fill a tortilla with lots of roasted vegetables and spread some goat cheese and avocado cream over it.

        This is a very flexible recipe and you can use ingredients at your preference and convenience. You can add a bit of black beans or chickpeas if you want to have some protein in the diet. (Click here to view recipe.)

        4. Spiced Vegan Lentil Soup (Cookie and Kate)

          This splendid lentil soup recipe can be made with very simple and easy-to-find ingredients. All you need are some green vegetables, lemon and some spices. The flavor of this recipe is very fresh and lively.

          One of the spices that you must not miss is black pepper. Besides that, it is another flexible recipe and it offers you a lot of space to experiment. (Click here to view recipe.)

          5. Lentil “Meatballs” in Lemon Pesto (Sprouted Kitchen)

          5

            This is another lentil recipe in our list. Lentils are first cooked and then turned into delightful “meatballs”. Now, cook them in light lemon pesto sauce and you can serve this delicacy along with green vegetables or even pasta.

            Be careful not to use too much of the pesto sauce as it’s quite acidic. You can always adjust it to fit your personal taste but it’s better to add water to the pesto sauce to thin it. (Click here to view recipe.)

            6. Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai (A Couple Cooks)

            6

              This vegetarian pad Thai recipe is another simple-to-prepare recipe that only requires you to start with spaghetti squash as a base and you are free to choose pretty much everything for the toppings as per your preference.

              This is a Thai take on spaghetti squash, which is otherwise commonly treated in Italian style. However, it’s not an old-style pad Thai dish but a delightful variant of it that doesn’t involve noodles. (Click here to view recipe.)

              7. Broccoli Fennel Soup (With Food and Love)

              7

                There are lots of greens in this soup. Raw cashews, lemon juice, sea salt, black paper and some water are blended until smooth first. Then, add in some roasted broccoli, fennel, kale and garlic and blend it again.

                While serving, the soup is best when topped with some olive oil. Finely shredded fennel leaves and lemon zest along with black pepper can also be added to make it even better. (Click here to view recipe.)

                8. Kimchi Ramen (Happyyolks)

                8

                  There are lots of apple, ginger, miso and eggs in this vegetarian ramen broth. The kimchi makes the real difference as it makes this recipe very spicy. This unique meal is perfect for dinner.

                  The broth is prepared by mixing the ingredients other than miso first and letting it cook for about half an hour. Miso is added after that. Then, noodles are cooked and added to the broth along with green onions and poached eggs. (Click here to view recipe.)

                    What makes this recipe unique is the addition of spicy coconut cream and the fennel. It’s a perfect way to treat your guests as this is not much difficult to prepare on one hand and tastes great on the other.

                    All the different varieties of squash work well for this soup just well. Fennel seeds and ground ginger can also be used in case you don’t find garden-fresh fennel and ginger. The soup is rich in spices such as garlic and fresh herbs. (Click here to view recipe.)

                    10

                      Perfect as a salad for dinner, this recipe is rich of exciting flavors. It can however be used not just as a salad but as a main dish itself.

                      5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                      5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                      Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

                      You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

                      1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

                      It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

                      Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

                      2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

                      If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

                      3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

                      If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

                      4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

                      A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

                      5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

                      If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

                      Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
