If you're trying to go vegetarian or you're simply looking for some inspiration to switch up your usual meals, we've created a one-day vegetarian meal plan, including snacks (check out the VEGAN snickers!) for you to try. Enjoy!
Coconut Banana Pancakes
- 150g coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp golden caster sugar
- 400ml can coconut milk, shaken well
- Coconut Oil, for frying
- 1-2 bananas, thinly sliced
- 2 passion fruits, flesh scooped out
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, and stir in 2 tbsp of the sugar and a pinch of salt.
Pour the coconut milk into a bowl, whisk to mix in any fat that has separated, then measure out 300ml into a jug.
Stir the milk slowly into the flour mixture to make a smooth batter, or whizz everything in a blender.
Heat a shallow frying pan or flat griddle and brush it with oil.
Use 2 tbsp of batter to make each pancake, frying two at a time – any more will make it difficult to flip them. Push 4-5 pieces of banana into each pancake and cook until bubbles start to pop on the surface, and the edges look dry. They will be a little more delicate than egg-based pancakes, so turn them over carefully and cook the other sides for 1 min.
Repeat to make 8-10 pancakes.
Meanwhile, put the remaining coconut milk and sugar in a small pan. Add a pinch of salt and simmer until the mixture thickens to the consistency of single cream.
Use this as a sauce for the pancakes and spoon over some of the passion fruit seeds.
- 2 apples
- ⅓ cup natural nut butter of your choice
- 1 bar of Nomo chocolate
- small handful shredded coconut
- sprinkle of cinnamon
On a serving plate, lay your apple slices in a single layer around the outside edge, then layer another small layer over those but towards the inside center of the plate (like shown in the picture above).
Drizzle the nut butter in a circular motion, from the middle of the plate to the outside edge. You can also just zig zag the almond butter from one side to the other if you like. Again, no rules – just do what you feel is best!
Top with chocolate chips, coconut flakes, almonds and sprinkle of cinnamon (or whatever you’ve chosen to use as your toppings!).
Buffalo tofu wrap
- 1 14-ounce block extra-firm tofu
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 6 tablespoons cornstarch
- ⅓ cup unsweetened oat milk
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 3/4 cup buffalo sauce
- Whole wheat wraps
- Toppings of choice
Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Slice pressed tofu into around 24 small rectangles and place in a large plate or bowl, set aside.
In a large shallow bowl, combine pulsed oats, avocado oil, paprika, oregano, salt, and pepper, set aside. In another two shallow bowls, add oat milk to one and cornstarch to another.
Set up your dipping assembly line. We recommend setting it up in the following order: tofu, cornstarch, milk, bread crumb mixture, and the lined baking sheet.
Begin breading the tofu by tossing one piece in cornstarch. Next, dip it in the oat milk and allow the milk to drip off before placing it in the bread crumb mixture and tossing to coat.
Place the coated tofu rectangle on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tofu, leaving at least 1 to 2 inches between breaded tofu pieces.
Once all your tofu rectangles have been coated, bake for 30 minutes.
While the tofu is baking, place the vegan butter or coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the butter/oil is melted, whisk in the buffalo sauce to combine. Reduce heat to low until the tofu is cooked.
Once the tofu is cooked, carefully transfer the baked tofu pieces to a large bowl or a tupperwear box. Pour the buffalo sauce on top and carefully toss to combine.
Assemble your wraps with buffalo-coated tofu and toppings of choice.
