1. Coconut Tapioca Pudding with Caramelized Bananas
You may remember tapioca from your childhood snack puddings? Here’s an upgraded coconut pudding version. This vegan Coconut Tapioca Pudding with Caramelized Bananas by Claire Ragozzino is made with creamy coconut milk, cardamom, caramelized bananas, and cacao nibs for a bit of texture. Tapioca, made from the cassava plant, is loaded with iron, calcium, folate and manganese. Much like chia, it can absorb several times its weight in liquid, making it a hydrating snack option. Grab a spoon and give this vegan tapioca pudding a try!

7. Mushroom Shawarma

This recipe is a combination of cuisines. In Thailand, I got inspired to use oyster mushrooms as a juicy meat alternative, and in Israel, I learned to love the smell of shawarma. Combining the two creates a mouthwatering dish that is one of my most popular recipes among family and friends. Take a bite of the warm pita filled with creamy hummus, tahini, salad, tangy amba and crispy mushrooms, and fly to heaven!

8. Matcha Yogurt Overnight Zoats

By pairing the green powder with some sweet and creamy nondairy yogurt, this oatmeal manages to replicate the qualities of a matcha tea latte. It’s not a mistake that the recipe does not call for any milk or water. You won’t need it! All that yogurt will provide all the “liquid” your oats will need to become soft and creamy. This Matcha Yogurt Overnight Zoats by Lauren Smith is like matcha pudding.
