Vegan Hot Dogs

Yes! You can enjoy hot dogs and still be vegan!

Some of the brands on the market have gluten in them, so if you are strictly gluten-free, look for brands without.

Just like hamburgers, usually what we love about hotdogs are all the accoutrements: mustard, ketchup, relish, etc.

This recipe uses a wrap, instead of a bun but there are several gluten-free buns out there. I just personally prefer a wrap.

Whether you use a grill or pan, splitting the veggie dog down the middle, For more surface area, makes a big difference. I like to char both sides And then place on top of a gluten free wrap that I have lightly toasted, On both sides.

The accompaniments make all the difference…You need to find what you love.

I love chopped dill pickle (Bubbies are great…), chopped red onion and a little Bit of minced jalapeno. I also like to use yellow and Dijon mustard along with Ketchup…and then I wrap it all up like a burrito.

I’d love to hear about your favorite version!

Enchilada Casserole

This recipe is a simple dish to bring to share at potlucks or parties and something that can usually be whipped up from ingredients on hand when unexpected guests come to call. Many of the ingredients can be canned or frozen and you could always substitute the fresh things for what you have in the fridge…spinach or kale instead of chard, carrots or any summer squash for the zucchini, etc.

Of course, if you have a vertical, aeroponic garden like WE do, you can have most of the fresh ingredients on hand and still living! (contact us for more info about growing this way yourself!)

Every single ingredient has health benefits AND it’s delicious!

California Barley Bowl w/ a Lemon Ne Chevre Sauce

Great idea…so many great health benefits (avocado, mung bean sprouts, almonds, etc) but probably the worst recipe of Season 2. #1 Didn’t taste great, #2 Barley is NOT Gluten free! Yikes! How could I not know this. HOWEVER! You could make this with any gluten free grain AND, with some tweaks, I think it could actually taste good! I’d love to hear what you do with this recipe!

Smoky Squash Gnocchi With Pesto

Okay, so I won’t lie…this was a super complicated recipe but SO worth it! Love, love, love it! Squash, pumpkin seeds, sage, basil, garlic and lemon are all super foods…how exciting to have them in one delicious dish…Wow! This dish is wonderful…you might want to double it and freeze some of the gnocchi for a second meal. I do like it with pesto…try it both ways and share your results!

Tuscan White Bean & Veggie Pesto Pasta

Adapted from https://betterbeanco.com….mis-quoted on video

Add some healthy plant-based protein to your next pasta dish! You will be amazed at how good the Italian classic, pasta e fagioli can be!

 

Wow! My first episode of season 2 in which I am blindly following other peoples recipes! Scary but this first one is a home run!

So much goodness all while avoiding gluten and dairy: beans, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, almonds, basil and garlic: an antioxidant smorgasbord! Asparagus is an amazing food: fights bloating and hangovers! Promotes weight management, kidney function AND is a mood enhancer/aphrodisiac…who knew?!

This is one of my favorite recipes of the whole season! I hope you and your family enjoy it, too and let me know how it turns out and what you think! Bon apetit!
