Vegan Snacks: Savory Edition

Hello everyone,

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 2: Veggie Fries

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 carrot
  • You can also do parsnip
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425
  2. cut into fries
  3. 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.
  4. if you like just a baked, feel then go ahead and lay them on a baking sheet and place right into the oven.
  5. Note: I’m oil-free at the moment so I line the sheet with parchment paper to avoid any sticking.
  6. bake in the oven for 25 min
  7. 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.

 

  1. cut the potato into large slices. you want them to be thick enough to cut evenly, but thin enough to get in a toaster.
  2. either place the slices in an oven, or in a microwave  for a few minutes to soften.
  3. then place in the toaster. I have to run mine through about three times to get a toasted texture.
  4. 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
  1. 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)
  2. once in liquid form-set aside
  3. 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
  4. add the sauce into the pan
  5. 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.
  6. serve with chips or any other snack that you prefer

** this would be excellent at parties as well : ]
