Vegan Stuffed Peppers with “Goat Cheese”

Vegan Stuffed Peppers with Vegan Goat Cheese!

My vegan journey has been pretty smooth over the past 7 years, but one thing that I sure do miss is the taste of goat cheese. I was a BIG fan of goat cheese and have been working on different recipes to kick those cravings. I am so thrilled to have finally found it and share it with you all!

Not going to lie – I have been eating these every single day for a week now as my afternoon snack. Just hits all those right spots! Baking is an option here but I do highly recommend them as a raw snack.

In search of a Food Processor to make all of your vegan dip and sauce dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Processor: The Magimix

  • Now, listen. I LOVE my food processor. But I did not purchase this until I was already a recipe creator for 3 years and, in those three years, I saved up a heck of a lot of pennies. Once my original food processor died (you will see it below!), I decided to upgrade to this absolutely magnificent machine. Is this necessary for your kitchen? Probably not. BUT, if you are serious about creating recipes and have the budget, this is one that cannot be beat. P.s this has a THIRTY year warranty.

Magimix Food Processor

The Cuisinart 14-cup Food Processor

  • Brushed stainless steel, 720-watts, large capacity….this is an absolute gem of food processors! I love how it all detaches like our magimix and makes creating AND removing easy. If you have ever had a food processor where the blades do not detach, then you know the struggle.

Cuisinart Food Processor

Cusinart 7 Cup Food Processor

  • So, sadly, our original food processor is no longer being sold (I find this a bit odd!), but this one is the closest that I could find for the price range, brand name, and quality. I always recommend going for the higher cup size (10-14 range), but this is a wonderful option for small families/singles/students. If budget is a concern and you are a larger family, go for the refurbished items before going down in size (I promise, a small cup size will drive you INSANE and you will kick yourself for not going bigger and refurbished!). So this has a stainless steel detachable blade, compact cover, spatula, extra large feed tube, and a 5 year motor warranty.

Course: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: beginner friendly, easy vegan snack
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 195kcal

Ingredients

  • 5 Mini Sweet Peppers
  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked for a few hours or overnight
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice fresh is best
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 green onion diced thin

Instructions

  • Blend together the cashews, garlic, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and sea salt until smooth. Taste test and adjust to your liking.
  • Wash and slice the mini bell peppers in half, remove the seeds and add a nice big scoop of the cashew cream inside. Top with sliced green onion. Enjoy!
  • If you would like to bake (I do recommend trying the raw first!), pop into the oven for 15 minutes at 425F/218C. Add the green onions once baked. Enjoy!

Notes

**These can be eaten with any pepper you wish - big/small/spicy!
**To save money, feel free to sub for 1/2 cup sunflower seeds with 1/2 cup cashews. You can also opt to use 1 cup sunflower seeds but be sure to add just a bit of sugar for the bitter taste :). As soon as I get my hands on some sunflower seeds I will make a new recipe for this.

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

Compostable Parchment Paper
The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love. Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.

Homemade Vegan Energy Bars

Let’s cut right to the chase. How much money have you spent on energy bars, protein bars, raw vegan bars, etc? If you are anything like me, it’s A LOT. I went to the shop yesterday and ONE raw vegan brownie bar (I’m sucker for brownie bars) cost 1.98 euros. If I was in Chicago, it’d be more like $2.50 USD.

That is a ton of money spent on little bites of heaven that you can 100% make yourself! Today we are going to show you how to make an epic brownie like chocolate energy bar that is packed with protein and healthy fats. The medjool dates and figs are there to give you a HUGE burst of energy. If you haven’t already jumped on the medjool date train, I urge you to do so. Just magical!

Super Simple Vegan Breakfast Squares!

Are you ready to try one of the boys favourite breakfast recipes?! These super simple vegan breakfast bars have been a hit for quite some time and I am so thrilled to finally have taken some photos to share this recipe!

The boys call this recipe “chocolate cake” and request it almost every single morning (and night haha). It comes together extremely quickly and takes just a few pantry staples. Enjoy!

These delicious vegan breakfast bars will come together in under 20 minutes with minimal ingredients that you already likely have stocked up in your kitchen.

Alessandro is posing with a freshly baked batch of his favourite bars! I like to add a small handful of vegan chocolate chips and crushed walnuts to these. I have also played around with nut/seed butter, pecans, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts, and fruit! They ALL worked.

I would love to know how these breakfast bars turned out for you and your own family! Feel free to share this Pinterest pin or blog post with any of your friends and family who you think would love to try them out 🙂

Keyword: beginner friendly, Budget Friendly, easy breakfast
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes
Servings: 12 squares
Calories: 162kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1.5 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • .5 cups apple sauce
  • 3-5 tbsp maple syrup Can substitute for brown sugar or any sugar of choice.
  • 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal + 2.5 tbsp water (optional but I love the nutritonal value of flaxmeal)
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch Sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips or nuts/seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper OR prep a large sized rectangular baking dish (15x10). You an also opt to use two smaller sized baking dishes. Just be sure to prep whatever you choose to use so the bars do not stick.
  • Grab a mixing bowl and begin to mash the banana until smooth. Stir in the non-dairy milk, apple sauce, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients, including the chocolate or nuts/seeds and mix well. Pour into the baking dish or right onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and even out with a spatula.
  • Bake between 12-16 minutes. To check when the squares are done, simply insert a toothpick or sharp knife and remove. If it is clean with just a hint of moisture, then you are good to go. If the squares are not yet finised at the 16 minute mark, bring the heat up to 400F/200C for just a couple of minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. I love to serve these with a drizzle of maple syrup, sliced berries, sliced bananas, crushed nuts, or even coconut shavings.

Notes

**I have yet to try blended up medjool dates with this one but if I was going to, I would add all of the wet ingredients PLUS the medjool dates into a food processor and blend until smooth. Then I would follow the recipe as stated. I'm sure this would be amazing!

Benefits of…

Oats

  • Balanced nutritional profile with plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.
  • Great source of carbs, protein and fiber to keep your body energized and satisfied.
  • Known to reduce blood pressure with the help of the antioxidant Avenanthramides.

Flax Seed

  • Flaxseed is an excellent source of omega-3! We love to include in baking, smoothies and oatmeal recipes. 1 tablespoon of flaxseed will give you a healthy dose of 1.3 grams of protein, fiber, B vitamins and, of course, omega-3 fatty acids!
