VEGAN POTATO SALAD RECIPE

5 medium potatoes
1-3 small cloves of garlic*, minced *note below 🙂
2 tbsp shallots, chopped
3 tbsp tahini
4 tbsp boiling water
1 large lemon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp dried dill
1 tbsp capers
1 handful of chopped cilantro
1 handful of chopped chives
black pepper to garnish

Peel potatoes and cut into large cubes. Cover with water and boil for about 10 minutes or until fork tender.

In the mean time, make the sauce by adding tahini, hot water, minced garlic, and shopped shallots to a bowl. Let it for 5 minutes before mixing to let the garlic have time to mellow and then add the juice from 1 lemon, salt, and dill. Whisk to combine and set aside.

When the potatoes are soft, drain water and transfer to a large bowl. Add capers and herbs and top with the tahini dressing. Mix well and garnish with black pepper.

TIP: If making this ahead of time, reserve 1-2 tbsp of sauce to pour over the top before serving or drizzle with a little tahini 🙂

Note: The recipe calls for 1-3 cloves of garlic because it’s personal preference 🙂 3 small cloves gives this potato salad a very strong garlic flavor in this recipe, so take it down to 1 if you want it to be more mild or consider using a sprinkle of garlic powder instead!

SUMMERY JACKFRUIT NACHOS
1 packet or can of jackfruit
1.5 tbsp taco seasoning
1/4 cup water

Add ingredients to a frying pan and sautéed for 10 minutes, using a spatula to shred the jack fruit. Add 1-2 tbsp of water if the pan dries up.

Jalapeno Lime Tortilla chips
1/2 cup shredded vegan cheese

Toppings:
1/4 cup corn
3 tbsp chopped red onion
chopped cherry tomatoes
chopped avocado
banana peppers or pepperoncinis
vegan yogurt or vegan sour cream
cilantro
red pepper flakes

Arrange tortilla chips on a baking sheet, top with jackfruit, and vegan cheese. Bake for 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese.

Then remove the nachos from the oven, top with sweet corn, onions, tomatoes, avocado, vegan yogurt or sour cream, banana peppers, cilantro, and red pepper flakes.

I’m telling you this combo of toppings is MAGIC! Hope you love it 🙂

RED WHITE and BLUE COOKIES

You will need:

Vegan chocolate chip cookies ( I used Lucy’s gluten free – sooo good!)

I also buy all of my spices from Thrive, they’re mostly organic and great prices. I showed how I make my own spice blends in this video:

I also love getting staples like coconut oil (I use it as moisturizer after the shower) and I also stock up on things like canned beans, canned tomatoes, and pasta sauce.
I usually buy nut butters like almond butter and cashew butter on Thrive because it’s cheaper and they have a lot of organic options.

I also buy my organic tea tree oil (skin care) and jojoba oil and black castor oil (for my hair) on Thrive too 🙂

instead of getting dried dill a tip…get them chop them and freeze them in a container. When it thaws you'll have fresh dill. You're welcome

Shelly Vavrick says:

Thank you for all your time and effort you put in to all your videos. You are so helpful and inspiring. I have fibromyalgia and I want to go plant based and lose weight. I am much much older and with that said, is it fisable for weight loss since I am so much older? I am in dire need to be healthy. All your recipes looks so delish. Again thank you for all you do!
