Let’s get some Litti Chokha! Our first Food Friday pick of the week is by @Youngchef_soham, presenting their vegan spin on this Indian cuisine. Utilizing chutneys made from eggplant, mango and spicy tomato, these delicious dough delights definitely look delectable. We’d love to take a bite out of these litti and savor the all-green traditional flavor within.

Meatless Monday Meal alongside some mindful thoughts to kick start your week right 🙉 🌈❤️ – The start of a new month & week always gets me thinking of how I can do more good to myself, life & mindset. I have started doing something that has brought a new way of thinking to cooking & eating food. Before eating at least one meal in my day – I am saying to myself 5 things I am grateful for, whether it is how the food has been brought to the table (planted, grown, manufactured or purchased) or anything in particular I am grateful for that day. Bringing mindfulness to the food I am eating and how I am eating it ☺️ I challenge you this week to do the same! It honestly brings you a lot of enjoyment & gratitude to the food in front of you and helps you bring some peace to the way you eat. – – This recipe is a remake of the old Spag Bol..

Anybody craving spaghetti? Because we are! @mullysmeals presents this wonderful lentil and vegetable bolognese (meat free) with edamame spaghetti, a savory pasta dish that’s making our stomachs rumble just by looking at it. We adore pastas of all kinds, and this lovely vegan food photo reminds us why. There’s even a recipe that we can use to create our own version of their lentil dish!

Who says you need meat for your burgers? This vegan hummus burger photo by @studierendenwerkaachen shows us that an all-green recipe is all you need when it comes to fast food. With an enticing filling of cress and roasted beetroot, this vegan burger is sure to satisfy the customer who bites into this morsel of healthy fast food.



Green is such an iconic color for vegan dishes, including dessert! @hempgallery presents their oh so mouth-watering bundt cakes, made from chia, banana and coconut. We can almost feel the fluffy, chewing texture of this cake just by looking at it. Coconut and banana are great fruits, and our minds are alight at the thought of tasting them in harmony in this delicious cake.



Last but not least is this smoothie bowl by @sammleex, a gluten-free concoction of nuts and assorted fruits. We see a lot of smoothie bowls on Instagram, but it takes a vegan dessert photo with a sense of flair to be chosen for our Food Friday. In this case, we adore the lighting of the bowl and the placement of its ingredients, artfully presented with all their different textures intact and palpable. Life is like a smoothie bowl, in a way, a concoction composed of different sensations (rough and smooth, grainy and chewy, etc) that blend together into something worth savoring.

Well, that’s it for our Food Friday blog for the week. Be sure to visit us next week for a fresh batch of delicious vegan cuisine to admire. Want to join our weekly celebration?
