When I transitioned it was crazy! Seriously!
After only watching a few documentaries on the state and quality (or lack thereof) of today’s food industry, I was convinced that I no longer wanted to eat meat or dairy. But then...what would I eat?? I honestly craved any and everything that was not vegan only because I knew I couldn't have them. So, instead of actually eating my favorite foods, I started listing them(!):
Spaghetti & Meatballs
I thought to myself, “How in the heck am I going to replace all these foods and make them vegan??” I began transitioning the contents of my fridge, took to Pinterest, and within no time I found recipes for so many foods I love!
My blog is dedicated to sharing tips and tricks with new vegans, long-time vegans and everyone in between; we can make food that’s both aesthetically-pleasing and appetizing! Meat who?!
I’ll debut some original recipes and may even post a video or two, so stay tuned!
“Chuna” (Chickpea Tuna)
1 (14oz) can of chickpeas
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1 tbsp Vegan Mayo
Old Bay Seasoning
Optional Tools of the Trade:
Drain and rinse your chickpeas.
Pour the chickpeas into your food processor, adding onion, and pulse until grated.
Pour your chickpeas into a bowl and mash them with a fork. Incorporate your chopped onions.
Stir in your vegan mayo and feel free to add more if you like it really moist.
Add remaining ingredients to taste. I recommend starting with 1/4 tsp of each ingredient and just a pinch of salt!
Enjoy your “Chuna” with bread, crackers or atop a garden salad; it is soooo good!
