People choose vegan recipes not only because they are yummy for the tummy but because they are good for health too. Vegan foods are always good for body as they do not contain preservatives or additives. The foods are usually either boiled or broiled, but never deep fried.
Vegan recipes are very effortless recipes as they require very less time for the preparation.
In the given write up, you will learn two very delicious vegan appetizer recipes that could become a part of your everyday food.
I enjoy cooking and eating vegan foods but i never compromise on the taste. So here I have chosen one of the best vegan appetizer recipes which are not only tasty but very less time consuming.
Being a very renowned Middle Eastern dip, hummus can be a great appetizer or snack. The things required to prepare hummus are 5 cups cooked garbanzo beans, 2 garlic cloves, 2 green onions, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, salt along with pepper, roasted sesame tahini, paprika plus pine nuts for garnishment.
While preparing the hummus, blend the garbonzo beans along with other ingredients in a blender. Transfer the blended paste into a bowl and drizzle little olive oil. Sprinkle little paprika and pine nuts over the prepared hummus to have a flavored taste.If you want some spicy taste, you can add sliced red chili to the hummus.
Enjoy the dish with warm soft pitas.
Mushroom Barley Soup:
The second vegan dish I have taken here is mushroom barley soup. This is a very delicious low fat soup which can be made in less than 10 minutes.
The things needed to prepare mushroom barley soup are: 2 cups chopped onion, 4 tsp oil, 2 garlic cloves, 2 carrots, 2 tsp coriander, 600 gm mushrooms, 1 cup barley along with 4 cups vegetable broth.
Take a deep pot and heat oil into that. Put the onion, garlic, coriander, carrots plus mushrooms in the pot and cook on medium heat. You can add dried herbs, barley and vegetable broth. Bring them to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes until barley becomes soft.
Your vegan mushroom barley soup is ready to be served.
