The potatoes, green beans, “tuna” and avocado create a balanced combination of healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates. And when you add the romaine, tomatoes and olives, you will boost the vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content of the salad. This great mix will make your taste buds happy and stomach satisfied.

Vegan Nicoise Salad With Avocado

This Recipe is :




Cook Time



  • 1 pound potatoes
  • 2 cups green beans
  • 2 romaine hearts
  • ½ pound tomatoes
  • 10 ounces vegan “tuna”
  • 1 avocado (you can sprinkle the avocado with a bit of black salt for a more eggy taste)
  • 3 ounces black olives
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste (I used ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. Wash the potatoes (you can peel them if you want, but the most nutrients and fiber are in or right below the peel).
  2. Put them in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook over medium heat until almost soft, then add the green beans and continue to cook until both potatoes and beans are tender but not over cooked (about 5 minutes).
  4. Meanwhile, chop the romaine, tomatoes and olives and transfer to a bowl.
  5. Drain the potatoes and beans, cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces and add both to the veggies.
  6. Top with tuna and chopped avocado.
  7. Mix together the remaining ingredients for dressing, pour over salad and gently combine.
  8. Taste, adjust seasonings to your liking and serve.
  9. Enjoy!


You can purchase vegan tuna alternatives in health food stores or online.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

Sounds yummy! How much broth gets added to the veggies, please? Thanks!
