Pancakes with black figs and cashew yogurt by @hannah__chia 💗 * 1 cup almond milk * 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar * 1 tsp vanilla extract * 1 cup flour (I used 1/2 cup all-purpose and 1/2 cup sprouted whole wheat flour) * 1 tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder * 1/4 tsp salt * 3 tbsp coconut sugar, or 2 tbsp maple syrup Whisk wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately, then pour wet ingredients slowly into the dry and stir until combined (do not over-mix! a few lumps should be left). Pour 3 tbsp of the batter on a preheated griddle or pan, and cook for 2 minutes or until several bubbles appear on its surface, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side. Serve warm with maple syrup and cashew yogurt. #bestofvegan

SUPER CHEESY VEGAN GRILLED CHEESE by @neuroticmommy 💚 as posted on neuroticmommy.com:  PREP TIME: 5 MINS COOK TIME: 5 MINS TOTAL TIME: 10 MINS  INGREDIENTS:  2 slices of Bread (dairy-, honey- and egg-free) 2 tbsp of vegan butter 2 slices of vegan cheese 2 slices of a beefy tomato handful of fresh kale or spinach salt/pepper to taste DIRECTIONS:  Place 1/2 tbsp to a full tbsp of vegan butter in a skillet or fry pan. Take one slice of bread and coat one side of it in the melted butter. Take one slice of cheese, 2 tomato slices, sprinkle with salt/pepper, top with handful of greens, another slice of cheese and the other slice of bread. Butter the outside of the bread that's facing up, so when you flip it, it will become toasty and buttery. Press the sandwich down with your spatula or if you have a sandwich press that would be great too, and hold it together until the cheese starts to melt. I usually cook mine for 2-3 minutes on each side because I like it nice and toasty. You'll also notice the greens will wilt down too. The greens are optional but highly recommended. Same with the tomato. There's nothing like a warm tomato to compliment a banging grilled cheese. Remove from pan, cut in half, serve immediately and Enjoy! #bestofvegan

Spicy tofu skewers by @aboutthatfood 💚 Recipe as posted on aboutthatfood.com:  Serves 4  Ingredients:  1x 300g block of firm tofu 1 red, one green and one yellow bell pepper about 10 cherry tomatoes 2 tbsp of sesame oil 3 tbsp of tamari juice of 1/2 lemon 1 tbsp of hot paprika 2 tbsp of sesame seeds 1 tbsp of tapioca starch 3 tbsp of sweet chili sauce Method:  The night before you plan on making your skewers, cut the tofu into bite sized cubes. Place in a sealable container together with the sesame oil, tamari, lemon juice, hot paprika and the sesame seeds. Shake the container well so all of the tofu cubes are covered and place in the fridge to marinate over night. The next day cut the bell peppers into little squares, and cut the tomatoes in half. Sprinkle the tapioca starch over the tofu blocks and shake the closed container well so all of the cubes are covered in tapioca. Now add all of the tofu cubes into skewers one after the other, separated by a piece of bell pepper or tomato. Now place on the grill and cook until the veggies are soft and the edges of the tofu have browned. Drizzle with the sweet chili sauce and serve. #bestofvegan
