Welcome to Healthy Vegan Friday! I’m excited to present you with the top recipes from this week. The first three were selected by the readers, and I also included four of my top picks.
Top Reader Picks:
My favorites (I try to select recipes that are made with little to no oil, salt, or added sugars):
1. Easiest Bean Dish - Indian Mung Beans with Fresh Mango Chutney from The Taste Space:
2. Easiest Healthy Soup – Vegetable Soup with Lentils from Woman in Real Life:
3. Easiest Healthy Treat - Choco-Cherry Pistachio Almond Larabites from Hello, Veggy!:
Most Tempting Sweet Treat (I would substitute the coconut nectar for two pitted dates) - Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding from The Veggie Nook:

Do you have fun plans for this weekend? You’re probably tired of hearing about my master’s project, but I’m almost done! I might even finish slightly ahead of schedule which is nice because I want my life back, thank you very much. I do plan to go to a yoga class, the farmers’ market, and go for a swim this weekend for sure.
Sunday is Father’s Day here in the States, so how about giving your favorite guy the gift of good health with a download of my recipe app, Vegan Delish? You can check it out here! Or, if you’re like me and have never ever had a man in your life who cooks (not that I’m bitter or anything, ha ha), then download the app for you and just make him a healthy meal. That counts as a gift, as well.
As temperatures increase with the impending arrival of summer, I’ve created a new category in Vegan Delish for Summer Recipes. My selections for this category include many no-cook options, as well as recipes that can be made on a barbecue, a crock-pot, or a pressure cooker. Here is a screenshot of the iPad version of the new category:
Until Monday, stay cool.
