Easy To Make Vegan Dumplings

Delicious and easy to make vegan entrée recipe ideas can be hard to find, it seems like most of the vegan recipes are sides and desserts. We did however find this vegan dumpling recipe, with easy gluten-free wonton wrappers as an example of a great tasting vegan entrée. As with all cancer diet recipes please use organic ingredients when possible.

Vegan dumplings (or pot stickers) with an egg-free and gluten-free wrapper. And they are easy to make and oil-free with only 4 ingredient needed!

  • Yields 15 dumplings
  • 40 min Prep Time
  • 5 min Cook/Chill Time
  • 45 min Total Time
Ingredients

Wrappers

  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Filling

  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups cabbage

Sauce (*see note)

  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/4 tsp ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

vegan-dumplings-for-a-beast-cancer-dietInstructions

Wrappers: Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Mix/knead to form a slightly sticky dough.
Divide into 12.
Roll out each ball between two sheets of wax paper as thin as possible.
Stack the rolled wrappers in a bowl with wax paper between each. Cover the bowl with a wet towel. This will keep them from drying out while you prepare the rest.

Sauce: Combine all the ingredients in a jar. Shake.

Filling: Add all the veggies to a non-stick skillet over medium high heat.
Once they begin to sizzle, add about 1/3 cup of water, cover the pan, and let them steam for 4-5 minutes over medium heat till soft.
Remove the cover, add the sauce mixture, and stir until everything comes together and all additional water has evaporated. About 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

To assemble: Remove one wrapper from the bowl with the wax paper that is underneath it. Spoon about a teaspoon of filling into the center of the wrapper.
Fold in half and press the edges together firmly. Optionally crimp the edges. Using the wax paper to do this will prevent the wrapper from sticking to your finger as it is prone to do if they are even slightly wet/moist.
Repeat with the remaining wrappers.

To steam: Fill a shallow pan with enough water to completely cover the bottom. Bring to a boil. Add half of your dumplings. Cover and steam for 5-6 minutes. Remove from the pan. Repeat with the second half.
Serve plain or with dipping sauce of your choice.

Notes

For a super simple sauce option, store-bought teriyaki sauce tastes great too. I really like this soy-free one .

Vegan Stuffed Green Pepper Recipe For One

Vegan Stuffed Green Pepper Recipe For OneEating a diet rich in vegetables, including green bell peppers, reduces your risk of certain chronic illnesses. It has been reported that the antioxidants in vegetables reduce free radical damage. Free radicals are compounds that cause cell damage that can lead to cancer. While red bell peppers contain larger amounts of antioxidants, green bell peppers are a significant source as well.

Serve this stuffed pepper with a side of cooked sweet potato, mashed with a bit of garlic and olive oil; the color contrast on the plate is beautiful. It’s always fun to play with what you put on the plate; it’s like having a canvas and palette of paints in front of you. Always use organic ingredients when possible.

Ingredients

  • One large green pepper
  • 2/5 cup veggie crumbles (Boca Crumbles)
  • 1/8  cup onion
  • 1/4 brown rice cooked
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cut top off pepper and remove seeds and membranes.
  3. Place pepper shell in a casserole dish.
  4. In a small pot mix together, crumbles, garlic, onion, cooked rice and 1/4 cup tomato sauce.
  5. Cook until hot.
  6. Stuff cooked mixture into pepper and pour remaining 1/4 cup tomato sauce over pepper.
  7. Cover and bake 45 minutes.
  8. Uncover.
  9. Top with vegan cheese (optional) and bake another 10-15 minutes or until pepper is tender.

This recipe is easily adaptable, so feel free to use any seasonable vegetables you have on hand. Use quinoa instead of rice. You can taste and adjust the seasoning as you go, so it’s practically fool-proof!

Vegan Ice Cream with Blueberries and Nuts Recipe

Vegan Ice Cream with Blueberries and Nuts Recipe For Cancer PreventionBy: Neeva Kedem, Founder of Never Meat Again.
Another version of the best vegan ice cream I ever tasted! The recipe is pretty “forgiven” – you can always adjust and compensate according to your personal taste.

What you need:

* 1 cup of frozen slices banana
* 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries
* 1 tbs maple syrup (or honey for those of you who are using it. In this case please use organic honey)
* Handful wall nuts
* Couple of fresh blueberries to put on top

What to do:

Blend all the ingredients in a strong blender until you get a nice, smooth and super delicious ice cream! If your blender is not too strong, you may need to stop it from time to time and mix everything manually, and then blend again. It’s important that all the nuts will blend into the ice cream.

You may add the fresh blueberries on top for taste and garnish.

Neeva KedemAbout Neeva Kedem: Couple of years ago my life took a nice turn when I became vegan. It happened after my 40th birthday; I kind of realized that my health and energy are not as they used to be, and that change is needed. After reading lots of researches and studies, I understood that eating healthier food that is based on plants and natural ingredients will be the best for me, and so I did. It didn’t happen overnight; first, I gave up red meat. Then chicken, which was very hard for me. And only about a year later – cheese and eggs. Today I can say that being vegan improved my health and energy levels, and that I love being vegan!

Citrusy Spring Rolls

Citrusy Spring Rolls RecipeBy: Kelli Roberts, a skilled Vegan Chef with a plant-based diet certificate from Cornell University, and a certified health & nutrition counselor from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Here I am again with something completely unlike me. I have to admit, I’m not one to mix citrus fruits with much else besides other fruits, juices, and smoothies. But lately, I’ve been seeing lots of recipes online mixing citrus with strange (to me) things – grapefruit in wraps, oranges in sandwiches and such. I generally move past those recipes pretty quickly.

BUT ~ something happened last night. It’s now reaching the hot part of the year here in Southern CA. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not always hot here 🙂, but now we’re getting days in the 90s, which is great. Yesterday after teaching a yoga class and being so hot that I was ready to jump in the pool fully clothed, I started fantasizing about light and refreshing foods (the aftermath of the Refreshing Green Smoothie from the other day) and suddenly wondered how grapefruit would taste in a spring roll, and today Citrusy Spring Rolls were born …..

The ingredients (clockwise from top left):

  • chopped arugula
  • chopped sunflower sprouts
  • white grapefruit
  • avocado

I thought that adding a few items with distinctive flavors would balance out the sharp taste of the grapefruit, and I decided on the spicy taste of arugula and the mellow sunflower sprouts. The avocado was important to add a creaminess that wove all of the strong tastes together.  And that’s it!How To Make Citrusy Spring Rolls

Prior to rolling…. I chopped the arugula and sunflower sprouts for ease in eating. There’s nothing worse than biting into a spring roll and losing half of the inside because it’s too hard to bite off. I added several pieces of avocado, then went pretty light on the grapefruit since I didn’t know how it was going to taste – I only added 2 grapefruit sections to each roll, but in the future I’d probably add one or two more.Citrusy Spring Rolls Recipe on Breast Cancer Authority Blog

Then once rolled, they went nicely with some coconut mashed yams and salad.  The salad had tahini dressing, which was also used as the dipping sauce for the spring rolls. They had a really nice flavor that will definitely be replicated, and were a nice change from the Asian-inspired spring rolls that I usually make.
