When I went vegan first I didn’t know how to make a proper white sauce without cheese. Then I discovered the roux is the secret. Roux is basically blending a fat (butter or oil) with flour. You can use this roux in various ways. However, there’s tons of ways to make a creamy alfredo sauce. I’ve seen recipes where people blend up tofu or soaked cashews. There’s a lot of ways to Rome.
This is a nice and gentle soup for when you or your loved ones are not feeling that well. Take it easy on the chili, maybe ;-) Make sure not to cook the miso paste, I’ve read it loses its healthy qualities (probiotics) when it’s heated to 100 degrees. Ingredients 150 grams brown rice noodles 3 teaspoons miso paste thumb size piece ginger 2 cloves garlic, minced 1⁄2 red onion, finely sliced 1 carrot, peeled large handful broccoli florets 6 mushrooms quartered handful baby leaf spinach 1 chili, deseeded + finely chopped 2 spring onions, chopped finely Preparation Cook the noodles according to packet instructions + set aside.
This recipe works with dried chickpeas. If you soak and sprout them yourself that will taste nicer than canned chickpeas. It is also cheaper. I got this recipe from a hummus chef I met at Burning Bär: Mishka, her real name is something else, in Hebrew, but I didn’t write that down. Ingredients This recipe will result in about 750 gr of hummus. 500 gr dried chickpeas 1 tsp baking soda 3 cloves garlic 4 tbsp tahini 2 lemons 1 tbsp cumin powder/seeds 6 tbsp olive oil water (optionally) 2 tsp smoky paprika powder (optional) salt pepper Tools Strong food processor Colander Preparation Put the chickpeas in a colander and rinse them real good.

Mac and cheese isn’t something that’s well known in the Netherlands. So basically think of it as a pasta with a white sauce. This version has a lot of flavor and it’s very cheesy for a vegan recipe. Sweet! Ingredients (2-3 servings) 1 small pumpkin or half a big one 2 cups uncooked macaroni or other pasta 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp flour 1 cup unsweetened plant milk 1⁄4 cup nutritional yeast 1⁄4 tsp paprika 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1⁄2 tsp salt 1-2 tsp mustard (optional, but very good) Tools Whisk, use a wooden/plastic one if your pan can scratch.
I got this recipe from Yvette and Andre, who are both lovely people and vegans with a taste for good food. Andre actually blogs about what he eats as a vegan. This stew thickens as it sits, to loosen it up, introduce additional warm vegetable broth as needed before serving.

This recipe is almost too easy. I make this when I don’t feel like cooking. The trick here is to take your time to let the onion become soft and let its sweet flavour go into the sauce. Ingredients coconut oil two white onions 3 or 4 cans of diced tomatoes (good quality ones) salt black pepper basil yeast flakes pasta (buy the best you can find, this really make a difference, I like buccatini) Preparation Peel and then cut the onions into halves, so half globes, no finer.

I got this recipe from “The Happy Pear”, aka Steven and David, two vegan cooks/chefs from Ireland. Think Jamie Oliver, but then twins and funny. The guacamole is an extra. It seems like you need a lot of ingredients for this recipe, but there’s a lot of repetition of ingredients and a lot of other stuff is just spices, which you probably already have. Ingredients (4 persons) For the spicy couscous:

(“Gobi” means cauliflower and “Matar” means peas in Hindi and Urdu.) I came across this delicious and very affordable Indian curry on YouTube and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s an easy recipe to make too. The only thing that might be hard to get is the asafoetida, and definitely read the storage instructions on that page: “If the aroma escapes you will awake to find a house reeking of yesterday’s garlic”.
