It’s all about Vegan Snack Recipes today! One of the most challenging parts of life is finding the right foods at the right times. There’s so many to choose from that it can be difficult to narrow down what you want. Restaurants have merged with modern technology to create meals and dishes to satisfy anyone, which only creates more options to choose from. And most of the time if you’re vegan, those foods can get expensive. Food companies are all businesses, so they maximize their profit without thinking about the ingredients they’re using.
There are vegan brands out there that will provide snack options that you can buy at your local grocery store, but because of the quality of the food and the care that gets put into the production process, those snacks often come in smaller portion sizes. The price tag doesn’t seem to follow that same trend. So what other options do you have to eat as a vegan besides the usual bag of grapes or carrots?
You don’t need to sacrifice your beliefs in order to have a variety of foods to choose from. Get creative and read about different snack recipes you can try to satisfy every craving. You’ll never find yourself struggling with what to eat again, because you’ll know there’s always something new you can try. Making the food yourself will save you money and some peace of mind.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of crunching into a snack food like you can do with chips or crackers. When you feel that craving coming up, get in the kitchen and whip up some homemade wheat thins. They’re made with toasted wheat germ and butter instead of oil, so you still get the same texture, flavor and crunch that you would with a box of the brand-name product.
Chocolate cravings never seem to go away, which is why people have come up with vegan alternatives. If you make chocolate-covered cookies with vegan ingredients like dairy free chocolate and coconut oil, you’ll end up with cookies that are toasted on the outside but soft and tender on the inside. They’ll taste great fresh out of the oven or stored in a dried, sealed container for a few days.
For some people, nothing says comfort food quiet like a warm muffin that’s topped with something sugary. It’s why so many people flood donut shops across the world every day. To make sure that what you’re eating is aligned with your beliefs, bake a lemon poppy seed muffin. You’ll know it’s all natural and safe to eat when it comes out delicious as ever without the neon yellow insides that factory produced lemon breads often have. For another absolutely amazing Poppy Seed Recipe…you have to try this scrumptious Orange Poppy Seed Cake by Sincerely Nuts…it’s over the top.
Popcorn is the kind of snack that everyone has craved at one point or another. You might find yourself watching a movie at the theater on a rainy afternoon, wishing you had something warm and buttery to snack on. In those moments, try a bit of za’atar popcorn. It’s homemade popcorn that you can make with all-natural kernels, topped with za’atar spice. It’s a Middle Eastern blend of thyme, oregano, sesame seeds and tart sumac. It’ll be a new twist on an old favorite snack!
For a comforting meal after a long day, you might want to fry some quesadillas, but you can also make them as a snack! They’re great because you can personalize them with whatever you enjoy in your own quesadilla, and you can make them bite size so they can be carried wherever you want to go. Stuff them with cilantro, sweet potato, jalapenos and scallions and you’ve got a great quesadilla filling for your favorite flour tortillas.
Wanting a quick bite of something that has a little bit of a kick to it? You can try Korean fried cauliflower and get creative with how you flavor it. Toss cauliflower nuggets in whatever Korean sauce you enjoy after rolling them in a cornstarch, vodka and flour batter. Sesame seeds will make the dish look and taste complete once it’s ready to eat.
You don’t need to give up dairy and queso at the same time. Serve this queso dip at a party and people might not even notice that what they’re eating is vegan! You can mix ingredients like potato, cashew-based nacho cheese, tomatoes and black beans together to blend the perfect queso together. It’s all natural and so delicious you may find yourself licking the dip bowl.
It’s good to look to the future and plan ahead sometimes, so when fall comes around and you find yourself with lots of apples at your local orchards and grocery store, prepare to make applesauce for yourself. It’ll be a delicious snack or topping for future meals and only takes about 40 minutes to make. You can add in whatever you like afterwards, like oats or fruit to make it a more lasting snack.
Cravings are unpredictable and hit at the most random times of the day. You might want nothing but sweet foods all morning and then find that you can’t get enough salty foods in the afternoon. There’s also cravings for particular textures and not flavors, like the crunch of a cracker. When most people have a craving, they can run to the nearest grocery story or fast food restaurant to take care of it, but vegans have more limited options.
Until the vegan diet becomes more popularized, it’s best to learn how to make your own snacks to solve your cravings. From chocolate covered cookies to spicy queso dip, whatever is on your mind can be made in your kitchen with vegan safe alternatives. All it takes is a few minutes to get creative and read some recipes you might like to try and then go for it! You’ll end up with either a delicious snack or a tasty mess, and both would be considered a win.
