Spicy Lemon Mustard Dressing + Salad

If I’m feeling extremely lazy then I’ll just mix the mustard with some hot sauce haha, but if I do that it most likely serves as a dip for steamed broccoli. I do recommend the sweetener in this though, even if it says optional! Then you get sort of a sweet and spicy sauce :)

Spicy Lemon Mustard Dressing

Salad:

  • Bed of greens (I used a baby kale mix)
  • steamed green beans
  • steamed broccoli
  • roasted cauliflower
  • green onions

Dressing:

  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon, juiced (or half lemon half apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Optional: 2 tsp. freeze dried chives
  • Optional: sweetener such as stevia, maple syrup, or pineapple juice

Um..are directions really necessary? Well any who, the salad: toss everything together! The dressing: mix everything together in a small bowl. Now either pour your dressing on your salad or use as a dipping sauce.

The overall flavor of this without it is pretty strong so the sweetness helps mellow it out. I haven’t tried the pineapple juice in this but my guess is it’ll give it a nice tropical/thai flavor! Another option is to sub out the mustard for tahini or sunflower seed butter, but I haven’t tried this so I can’t vouch for it.

Stupid Easy Snacks

Strawberry Mango Fro-Yo

Literally just frozen mango chunks and frozen strawberries blended up, with a few mango chunks to top it off.

Chocolate Banana Breakfast Pudding

In honor of Banana Lover’s Day :)

 

It’s like a pretty chocolate banana flower!

And so, so easy to make :)

 

Chocolate Banana Breakfast Pudding

  • 2 small ripe bananas (even better frozen!)
  • 2 T milk of choice
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp coconut extract (or vanilla but coconut is so yummy)

This is so simple; all you do is stick everything in a blender. NOW BLEND! If you wish to garnish as I did (and plus you get more texture from the chunks), then save half a banana to mix in after the rest is blended. P.S. the white swirls are just agar pudding :)

Yes. Yes, I did indeed take this after eating off the center piece. No. No, I do not regret this choice.

Coconut Cream Oranges

Normally, I’m not much of a citrus fruit person. Like, at all. But, there’s a plethora of oranges invading the fruit bowl at the moment. And…I get to eat it in a bowl full of creaminess! Who doesn’t love a bowl full of creaminess? Behold!

Yes, now look into the bowl. Look into the bowl full of creamy goodness.

You know you want it. No?Image

Now you do! That bite is just waiting. (Well, actually it’s gone now.) But here’s how to make it!

Coconut Cream Oranges

  • 2-3 oranges, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Agar Cream (I use Katie’s recipe, but you can use a vegan cream instead)
  • 1 T water
  • 1/8 tsp coconut extract
  • 6 drops of liquid stevia (or 2 tsp sugar)
  • very small dash of salt
  • cinnamon for sprinkling
  • Optional: shredded coconut for topping

In a blender, mix the agar cream, water, extract, sweetener, and salt. Now, in a bowl place all of your orange chunks, and pour the cream all over. Sprinkle some cinnamon, and you’re done!

The Very Beginning

Gotta start somewhere right?! This is my first blog AND first blog post, not including tumblr that is, haha. So, an introduction is in order. I’m Ally, hence the Ally part in natureveganally. I am a vegan and holistic nutrition/healthy eating advocate. I love writing and creating/experimenting with recipes as well, and reading other people’s food blogs but never thought to create my own. Until now! Here’s to my new blog!
