Banana Date Shake (nondairy)

IMG_1033Thank you One Arab Vegan for this recipe! I adore it. I modified it a little, here it is (serves 1):

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3-4 medium pitted dates, soaked 30 min
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon or more to taste
  • 1 T peanut butter
  • dash vanilla extract

Put all in blender and process until smooth. Pour into fancy cup or dish and make a cinnamon swirl on the top for flourish. Add a fancy straw (forgot to put mine in photo).

I have made this four or five times now and it is my favorite dessert because I don’t feel guilty indulging in it!

Creamy Peanut Kale & Beans

This recipe is adapted from vegweb.com. I have made it two or three times already and I don’t get tired of it! The original recipe does not have beans in it. I added those to make it a main dish instead of a side dish so I could get my protein in.

  •  1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  •  1/3 onion, chopped
  •  1 garlic clove, chopped
  •  1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (may need a little more because the peanut butter gets very thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped well
  • 1/2 can to 1 can kidney beans

Heat oil in pan; add garlic & onions until translucent. In a bowl mix peanut butter, Bragg’s, broth, and spices until PB is dissolved and it’s saucy. Add kale to pan and cook until leaves are dark green and wilted. Add sauce and beans to pan, stir and serve.
