1. Blooming Onion with Dipping Sauce [Vegan]
This vegan Blooming Onion by Gabrielle St. Claire is a handful of ingredients, baked, crispy, the sauce is like pure heaven, a much healthier version, great for entertaining, no greasy mess, and perfect for any season! Typically a blooming onion utilizes egg and breadcrumbs, which also have egg, are fried, and have a slight crisp outer edge. In hopes to create a healthier alternative, this version skips the frying, switches up the egg for more a thicker flour coating, and opts for Panko and simply grinds it into a dust to resemble breadcrumbs.

This recipe is ridiculously pretty on a plate, while also being super healthy and very summery. This low-carb Almond Butter Roasted Tofu with Mango Avocado Salad by Medha Swaminathan is unforgettable! Even if you don’t like mixing your sweet and savory, you’ll still love this recipe. Something about mango (and most nut butters) works so well in savory dishes- you’ve gotta give it a go!

These Potato Cakes by Melissa Tedesco are the perfect way to use up any leftover mashed potatoes, or to just make on their own!

9. Banana Peel Stir Fry [Vegan]
One of the plants with the most potential uses is banana. Banana leaf is used to serve, banana flower can be used in making cutlets or stir fry, the stem is edible in the form of another yummy stir fry, and banana itself can be either eaten raw or cooked! Even the banana peel can turn into a very delicious Banana Peel Stir Fry, as you can see in this recipe by Anupa Joseph. Isn’t it amazing?
10. Irish Soda Bread Baked Oatmeal [Vegan]
Soda bread is a wonderful treat for any time of the day. It’s best as a side with some soup, but it’s also lovely at breakfast!

If you take a look at the recipe, you’ll notice there’s no sweetener involved. After all, it’s meant to replicate the taste of bread, and a very simple bread!
