To continue onto the last post I am sharing a few savory snack recipes that are sure to fill you up! They are all vegan, healthy, and packed with flavor. As I have mentioned- I am usually a sweet gal, and Wyatt is all about the savory goods. It can create quite a debate when it comes to whipping up something to snack on. However, these have been a go-to lately.
Making your own snacks is a great way to avoid eating a lot of processed foods. These recipes are easy as they take 4-25 minutes to make! You can even make them as part of your meal prep and have them ready to go throughout the week.
I have uploaded a video where you can follow along HERE
Recipe 1: Pizza Roll Bliss Balls
- 1/2 cup almonds (raw)
- 1/2 cup white beans
- 2 tbsp oats
- 1 tbs tomato paste
- 1 tbs nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
- pinch of sea salt
- Combine almonds and oats into food processor and blend to make a powder
- add in the rest of the ingredients
- blend and combine until a dough is formed
- roll into balls
- store in refrigerator
*These taste exactly like pizza rolls from when I was a kid : ]
Recipe 2: Veggie Fries
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 carrot
- You can also do parsnip
- Pre-heat oven to 425
- cut into fries
- if you want your fries to be extra crispy then soak the strips in water for 45 min to an hour and then sprinkle some starch on top.
- if you like just a baked, feel then go ahead and lay them on a baking sheet and place right into the oven.
- Note: I’m oil-free at the moment so I line the sheet with parchment paper to avoid any sticking.
- bake in the oven for 25 min
- serve! I served with smashed avocado.
Recipe 3: Sweet Potato Toast
- half of a sweet potato (you want the potato to be as even as possible)
- any sort of toppings that you would like. I did two varieties here, one was avocado and tomato, and the other was almond butter and jelly. There are so many other ways of doing it: avocado with strawberry, smashed beans and veggies, sautéed mushrooms, hummus, etc.
- cut the potato into large slices. you want them to be thick enough to cut evenly, but thin enough to get in a toaster.
- either place the slices in an oven, or in a microwave for a few minutes to soften.
- then place in the toaster. I have to run mine through about three times to get a toasted texture.
- add your toppings : ]
Recipe 4: Spinach Dip
- 3/4 cup cashews
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup chickpeas
- 3/4 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- combine all of the ingredients (except the spinach) in a blender (I used a food processor but the texture is so much better when blended)
- once in liquid form-set aside
- sauté spinach on a skillet for a few minutes. you want the spinach to be wilted but still a little hard since it will continue to wilt once everything else is added
- add the sauce into the pan
- continue to stir until the sauce thickens. mine took about 2 minutes. it thickens relatively quickly so be sure to keep a close eye on it and stir.
- serve with chips or any other snack that you prefer
** this would be excellent at parties as well : ]
