Vegan meatballs by @thewhitechestnut ❤️ INGREDIENTS:
for the vegan meatballs:
2 sweet potatoes
2 cans of drained chickpeas
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 cup vegan cheese
fresh coriander leaves to top it all
for the tomato sauce and rice:
2 chopped carrots
2 chopped garlic cloves
1/2 chopped red onion
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dired rosemary
600g tomato sauce
1 tsp maple syrup
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup rice
2 and 1/2 cups water
preparation time: 30 minutes
total time: 1 hour
serving size: 18 vegan meatballs – 4 serves
Preheat the oven to the highest temperature and prepare the veggies while it’s heating.
You´ll need two trays. In the first one, put the cubed sweet potatoes, the carrots, the chopped onion and then top it all with some olive oil, oregano and rosemary, mix it well and put it in the oven.
In the other tray, add the chickpeas and some curry, black pepper and olive oil.
It is important to place the tray with the veggies on top of the tray with the chickpeas. Leave them in the oven to cook for 25 minutes at the highest temperature.
Once the veggies and chickpeas are cooked, pour them in a food processor and blend until you get a smooth consistency but don’t worry to leave some bigger pieces as you´ll get more texture.
Then pour the mix in a bowl and add the vegan cheese, mix it well and start making the vegan meatballs shape.
Cover a tray with some baking paper and cook the meatballs in the oven at the highest temperature for 10 minutes, until the vegan meatballs are golden.
Whilst the vegan meatballs are cooking in the oven we´ll prepare the tomato sauce and the rice.
In a pan at medium heat, cook for 15 minutes the chopped carrots, maple syrup, garlic, onion, rosemary and oregano. Then add the tomato sauce and cook at medium heat to reduce the water.
To prepare the rice just follow the manufacture´s instructions and add some pepper and salt.
To serve just add some rice, vegan meatballs your delicious tomato pasta and top it all with some fresh coriander. #bestofvegan

Rows and rows and rows of newly born cows. They were all brought into this world by man, for one reason only. To be killed and sold as Veal.
Females have to have a baby, in order for milk to produce.
Instead of these babies drinking their mothers milk, and bonding with their Mothers, these calfs, are locked inside tiny crates with zero interaction, and their Mothers are inside factories having their baby's milk extracted by machines to be sold to humans.
Their Mothers will spend two to three years of repeatedly being impregnated, just to endure the separation of the baby they grew inside their bodies for 9 months. These calfs are just a by product of dairy and all of these babies will be killed within a couple of months. Because they're unable to move in these tiny boxes, they will be underdeveloped because we humans insist our animal meat is tender. These babies can't even walk more than one step in these cruel crates and they're life inside their grieving Mothers was longer lived, than the life they lived outside of their Mothers bodies.
They're being fed low iron formula to keep them weak. We don't want to have to chew on them for too long because muscles are tougher to chew. Calcium is a mineral found in the ground. Herbivores get their calcium from eating a plant based diet. Just as Elephants and Cows do. Consumption of dairy causes fertility problems in humans because our bodies are not able to process calf development liquid even if it's turned to cheese. The countries with the highest rate of osteoporosis are the counties that consume the most dairy. Be humane. Please buy plant based alternatives, and don't support animal cruelty.

Ok, 'most people' perhaps wouldn't consider cob loaf to be a meal, or would they? 🤔 .
I've never considered myself to be like 'most people,' so I'm putting this absolutely scrumptious, tried and tested (I'd estimate at least 10 times in fact) plant-based cob loaf recipe out there as this week's Meat-free Monday selection. 🙋
Please don't judge me.....😉
I am for the majority of the time, a whole-food, plant based kinda girl, preferring to get my nutrients from foods as close to their natural state as possible, but I'm also partial to something just a little bit indulgent every now and then. (I'm human after all 💁🏼)
I'm pretty sure everyone loves cob loaf, and the absolute upside of this recipe, apart from its exquisite flavour, is the fact that it's void of the massive amount of saturated fat that is generally contained in the traditional ones that are heavily laden with cheese and cream. 🙌
I hope you'll give it a try, and if you do, I'd love to hear what you think. ❤
Creamy Spinach Cob Loaf
1 cob loaf
1 teaspoon of olive oil
4 spring onions, chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed (or 2 teaspoons of minced garlic)
250g frozen spinach, thawed
30g packet of spring vegetable soup mix
225g tub of Tofutti Sour Supreme (dairy-free sour cream which I found @ Coles)
1 cup of Praise Light Mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200°C
Cut a large hole in the top of the cob loaf and remove the inside. You want to make sure there is a large well to fill with deliciousness whilst maintaining the structural integrity of the loaf. .
Cut the bread you have just removed into bite-sized pieces and place on a baking tray with the loaf.
Heat the oil in a frypan, add the spring onion, red onion and garlic and stir until the onion starts to brown.
Add spinach, soup mix, Sour Supreme, mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Stir well and cook for a few more minutes.
Fill the cob loaf with the dip and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the bread is golden.
Serve hot and enjoy.
**If spinach isn't your thing, I have also made this cob using about 1/2 a can of creamed corn.

#NutFact : Nuts have been proven beneficial for those trying to maintain their weight. Why? Precisely because of their higher protein and heart-healthy fat content, both of which help curb hunger. This means that enjoying that spoonful can also reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. You definitely won't be craving processed food when you've got these around. 😉 #roseskitchenph#nutbutterlove#healthyliving
