Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Greek Style Cucumber Nachos from Fueled by Carrots:

What a clever idea for “nachos”. Cucumber is my favourite veggie, it’s crisp & refreshing. These would make such a great summer food. And well, anything with artichoke and I’m game 😉 I like how Vicki made homemade vegan feta for this.

Saucy Sweet Potatoes with Baby Carrots and Peas from Delicioso:

What a veggie-licious bowl! The spices would really give this dish a lot of flavour. It would actually great make a great pasta replacement with the tomato sauce, but the sweet potatoes make it a healthier carb base. Yum!

Lentil Cauliflower Sloppy Joes from Alison’s Allspice:

These sloppy joe’s are so pretty! Maybe they should be called pretty joe’s! I really like the idea of using lentils as the protein base instead of fake meat. And using cauliflower is a great way to get some added veggies in.

Banana and Coconut Bread from Allotment 2 Kitchen:

So banana and coconut are a truly wonderful combination. The first time I had it was in muffin form and I was surprised at how much I liked such a simple thing. And the coconut sugar really lends a wonderful golden colour.

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her One-Pot Lentil Quinoa with Asparagus & Peas:

“You make me feel so young, you make me feel as though spring has sprung…” Just look at this amazing one pot meal. The asparagus and peas are making me think of gorgeous spring days. And the quinoa and lentils would make for a good protein content in this meal – it would be super filling AND delicious. I loooove that she cooked the quinoa in coconut milk (something I have done for rice, but haven’t thought of trying for quinoa for some reason). I will of course have to make this with her homemade parm.

And I’m sharing my Lemon Ginger Date Bites:

Still using up all of those lemons! These are very lemon-y, which I love. The ginger gives it a nice kick and the mango balances it out. I tucked in some turmeric for good measure and anti-inflammatory properties. I especially love these after a good workout.

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

  1. Happy Friday girl! I’m jealous of your weather – it’s cold and rainy here. But I’m home on the couch with the pups (sick day from my jaw problems) so the rain isn’t bothering me too much. Thanks so much for the nice comments on my lentil quinoa. I haven’t heard that song in forever!
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Is cold and rainy better than snowy? I always had a tough time with that one. Oh I hope your jaw feels better! I know those pups will help make you feel better. Hope you’re having a great weekend Mary Ellen =)

    1. Oh yuck – I hope you start seeing some spring weather soon Sandi! Oh my goodness your muffins sound super awesome! I can’t wait to check them out. I hope you’re staying warm & dry this weekend!

  2. You know what I LOVE about the Healthy Vegan Fridays challenge, is that it introduces me to new bloggers who make wonderful vegan recipes. So thank you to both hosts for that.

    Also Thank you so much for featuring my Banana Coconut Bread, I really wasn’t expecting such a humble recipe to be featured.

    1. Aw thanks Shaheen, that’s one of my favourite things too =) I always love meeting new bloggers and seeing what they bring to my table 😉 Your banana bread sounds good! Don’t underestimate it’s awesomeness!
