Pumpkin soup

A creamy and healthy Pumpkin Soup recipe for the healthy vegans and vegetarians

Nutritional Values for the Pumpkin Soup

  • Calories: 241
  • Protein: 9,5 g
  • Fat: 11 g
  • Carbs: 27 g

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • One 4-pound sugar pie pumpkin
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 large or 6 medium garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Tiny dash of cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk or heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Carefully halve the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Slice each pumpkin halve in half to make quarters. Brush or rub 1 tablespoon olive oil over the flesh of the pumpkin and place the quarters, cut sides down, onto the baking sheet. Roast for 35 minutes or longer, until the orange flesh is easily pierced through with a fork. Set it aside to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add onion, garlic and salt to the skillet. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. In the meantime, peel the pumpkin skin off the pumpkins and discard the skin.
  4. Add the pumpkin flesh, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cayenne pepper, and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Use your stirring spoon to break up the pumpkin a bit. Pour in the broth. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  5. While the soup is cooking, toast the pepitas in a medium skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Transfer pepitas to a bowl to cool.
  6. Once the pumpkin mixture is done cooking, stir in the coconut milk and maple syrup. Remove the soup from heat and let it cool slightly. Securely fasten the blender’s lid and use a kitchen towel to protect your hand from steam escaping from the top of the blender as you purée the mixture until smooth. Transfer the puréed soup to a serving bowl and repeat with the remaining batches.

Quinoa Tacos

For the Tacos’ vegan and vegetarian lovers who want to make their own Quinoa Tacos  without too much effort and time.

Nutritional Values for the Quinoa Tacos

  • Calories: 301
  • Protein: 7,9 g
  • Fat: 10,4 g
  • Carbs: 46,5 g

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Simply Nature Organic Quinoa
  • 2 cups Simply Nature Organic Vegetable Broth
  • 1 tablespoon each: cumin and paprika
  • 3 tablespoons Simply Nature Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon each: garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 lime
  • 4 cups Simply Nature Organic Spring Mix
  • 1 bell peppers
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Feta cheese crumbles (omit for vegan)
  • Pickled red onions, pickled radishes
  • 10 corn tortillas
  • 1 lime
  • 1 bell peppers (we used 1/2 red and 1/2 orange)
  • 4 cups Simply Nature Organic Spring Mix

Instructions

  1. Cook the quinoa: In a dry pan over medium heat, add the dry quinoa and toast it over medium heat, stirring frequently. After a few minutes you’ll start to hear a popping sound; continue stirring until the quinoa just starts to brown and smell toasty, about 3 to 4 minutes total.
  2. Immediately transfer the quinoa to a fine mesh strainer and rinse it in the sink. Return it to the pot and add the vegetable broth and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer where the broth is just bubbling for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the broth has been completely absorbed. (Check by pulling back the quinoa with a fork to see if broth remains.) Turn off the heat and let sit with the lid on to steam for 5 minutes, then fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  3. Prepare the toppings: While the quinoa cooks, make a quick bell pepper slaw: Thinly slice the peppers, then cut them in half. Place them in a bowl and mix with 1 tablespoon lime juice and a few pinches kosher salt, and allow to stand until serving. If serving with spicy sour cream, stir in few shakes hot sauce to taste (or do the same with hummus for a vegan option).
  4. Finish the quinoa taco filling: When quinoa is done, melt the coconut oil in large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add cooked quinoa and stir to combine. Add the cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt and stir. Then cook without stirring for about 5 minutes or until the bottom starts to get crispy. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon lime juice and green onions. (Add any remaining lime juice to the bell pepper slaw.)
  5. Serve the quinoa tacos: Warm the tortillas, or char them by placing a tortilla on an open gas flame on medium for a few seconds per side, flipping with tongs, until slightly blackened and warm. Top the tortillas with the greens, quinoa filling, bell peppers, pickled onions, sour cream (mixed with a little hot sauce if desired) and feta crumbles. Serve immediately. If desired, serve with a side of Refried Black Beans.

Banana Pancake

You often want to eat some pancakes in the morning before to go to work or school but don’t because it’s usually full of sugar and very high in calories? Then you will love this Banana Pancake recipe because you will finally be able to eat delicious pancakes in the morning without ruining your diet.

Nutritional Values for the Banana Pancake 

  • Calories: 126
  • Protein: 3,5 g
  • Fat: 2,6 g
  • Carbs: 23 g

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup mashed ripe banana* (about 3 small, 2 medium or 1 extra large)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon of neutral oil
  • ¾ cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Serve with: almond butter, banana slices, honey or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the banana and measure it out. Whisk in the egg, neutral oil, and milk.
  2. In a separate bowl bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking powder, sugar, and kosher salt.
  3. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a smooth, thick batter forms. (If needed, you can add another tablespoon of milk to get it to a pourable consistency, but you shouldn’t need it for the first batch.)
  4. Lightly grease a skillet with butter and wipe off extra grease with a paper towel. Heat the skillet over low heat. Pour the batter into small circles: about ¼ cup each. Cook the pancakes until the bubbles pop on the top and the bottoms are golden: low and slow is the key! Then flip them and cook until golden on the other side.
  5. If necessary, add a tiny splash of milk to the batter for the second batch so it comes to a pourable consistency. Repeat with the remaining batter, adjusting the heat as necessary (the skillet can get very hot on the second batch). Place the cooked pancakes under an inverted bowl to keep them warm. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
