http://veganalamexicana.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/P9220010-300x171.jpg

Hey friends!! I want to share a yummy dish I made recently, amaranth with fresh corn, oats, onion, Mexican Chipotle Field Roast Sausage & jalapenos. Very filling & spicy! Amaranth is high in protein, calcium & the essential amino acid, lysine. It has been cultivated for thousands of years by native people in North & South America, the Aztec people called it huautli. It is a delicious alternative to rice, quinoa and other grains. Someone had given me some Field Roast Sausages, and although I usually don’t eat processed vegan meats …

NRGY Chayote, Mexican Zucchini & Garbanzo Chipotle tacos

http://veganalamexicana.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/P9130027.jpg

  Hey friends!! Today, I was craving something hardy & I had some beautiful chayotes & some mexican zucchini, so I decided to use them for stuffing in my tacos. Growing up, we had chayotes growing in our yard & I never dared to eat them. They seemed too “healthy” hehe, and guess what? They are very healthy, and delicious! Chayotes are a good source of potassium,calcium, magnesium, low-calorie food and are a mild anti-inflammatory food. Small mexican zucchini is a …

(For English Version click HERE)     Hola amigos! Quiero compartir una de mis bebidas favoritas con usted, horchata! Siempre se me hace difícil encontrar una versión vegana, y mucho mas una sin azúcar procesada, así que tuve que aprender a hacer mi vercion en casa. Orinalmente la horchata lleva arroz blanco, leche, y azúcar procesada. Mi version es un poco más saludable pero todavia muy deliciosa. Disfrute! Ingredientes: – 2 tazas de arroz integral – 8-10 vasos de agua filtrada – 1 / 2 de vaso de datiles o más si desea más dulce – 1 cucharada de vainilla X-Tract (sin alcohol) – 1 / 2 taza de mantequilla de almendras crudas o 1 / 2 …

  (Version en Espanol)   Hey friends!! I want to share one of my  favorite drinks with you, HORCHATA!! It’s always hard to find a Vegan version, let alone a processed sugar-free version, so I had to learn to make my own. It’s a twist on the classic popular which uses white rice, milk & processed sugar. It’s a little healthier but still so delicious. Enjoy! Ingredients: – 2 cups of brown rice – 8-10+ cups of filtered water – …
