I was recently approached by Michael Sandoval of BetterCater.com, based out of Daly City, California, for The Coexist Cafe to host a couple guest blog posts for him. Since Matt and I are still recovering from Canada, the Maryland power outage, and Independence Day festivities, this request couldn’t have come at a better time! (And yes, I know I still promise you those posts. That’s what the weekend’s for, right?
Relaxing! Erm… catching up with y’all!)
Anyway, here’s where I give the floor to Michael. Be sure to keep an eye out for another guest post from him next Thursday. And with that… Michael, take it away!
5 Delicious Vegetarian Food Recipes
Serve your family with the best and most sumptuous vegetarian food recipes. You want only what’s healthy and nutritious for them, especially for your growing-up kids. It pays to spend some time planning your meal and give everyone in the family a healthy dish that they’ll all enjoy. Here are some meals that you would want to include into your weekly plan.
Quick-to-Cook Vegetable Recipes
If you are a busy mom, there are so many quickie vegetable recipes that you can prepare, all without depriving your kids with the right nutrition that they need. In less than 30 minutes, a salad of warm potato, radish and halloumi, creamy courgatte lasagna or squash & spinach curry, creamy butter beans, and Japanese tofu will offer you a mouthwatering experience in just the nick of time. They’re not only economical, they’re tasteful, healthy, and very easy to prepare.
If you want an all-veggie and zero-meat recipe, check out some excellent vegan menus that you can serve to your family and friends. In fact, you can prepare an appetizer, main course, and dessert with no meat in sight. Got no idea what to prepare? Try cabbage with caraway, cauliflower salad, chupseuy, tomato soup, roast summer vegetables, and baked potatoes. They’ll offer you a serving of gastronomic adventure without really breaking your budget or your diet.
What better way to serve while camping or enjoying a nice, cool summer dine out with friends and family than a vegetarian barbeque. If you want a blend of meat and vegetables, try halloumi & mushroom barbeque. Stuffed grilled peppers, ember-baked focaccia stacks, or carrot & sesame grilled burgers will also tantalize your palate and offer you with a rich choice of healthy cuisines.
Christmas Vegetarian Cuisines
Who says you you’re excused from sticking to a diet on Christmas? If you want a healthy choice of food for the holidays, there are so many perfect Christmas recipes that won’t require any meat at all. Among the most sensational holiday recipes that you can prepare include layered squash, barley & spinach pie, truffled parsnip, red onion & egg pie, herby cheese roulade and the traditional Christmas pudding.
A traditional vegetarian recipe loads you with all the sweet, yummy taste you so ever wanted while providing you with healthy, diet friendly choice of food to serve. If you want to please your guests, try blueberry cake, honey yogurt cheesecake, semifreddo neapolitano, raspberry cranachan, and real vanilla ice cream.
Now that you have the idea of some of the best vegetarian cuisines to serve, you will find it very easy to plan your week’s healthy menu in advance. So load up your daily diet with a healthy serving of vegetables and stay fit and healthy as you can be.
