A vegan & gluten-free diet is a healthy lifestyle choice! Veganism is a plant-based diet that curbs the consumption of animal products as well as animal-origin products. While on a gluten-free diet, an individual restricts from foods containing gluten such as wheat, rye, barley, & triticale.
Regardless of such strict food limitations, there is a wide array of whole grains, veggies, fruits, seeds, pulses, and nuts that can help create delicious vegan gluten-free meals. Cauliflower Fried Rice and Zoodles Pad Thai are two such dishes you can relish when following this special diet.
Cauliflower Fried Rice
Cauliflower Fried Rice is a low-carb version of the fragrant Thai Basil Rice. The key step of making the dish is to pulse the cauliflower into tiny bits and chop up colorful veggies like carrots, bell peppers, & spring onions in the same size. The hint of sriracha sauce, sesame oil, fresh herbs, ginger & garlic makes it an appetizing bowl to relish for lunch or dinner.
Tip: To save the cauliflower fried rice from turning mushy, spread out the prepped cauliflower and vegetables on a lined baking tray and roast them in the oven (20-25 minutes at 400F) until crunchy.
Zoodles Pad Thai
Zoodles Pad Thai is a delicious healthy alternative to high-carb gluten pasta as its core ingredient is zucchini noodles. The veggies tossed in the authentic sweet, zingy, & spicy Thai vegan sauces along with peanut topping make you crave for it again and again!
Tip: Having a vegetable spiral slicer helps achieve perfect zucchini noodles.
