I make a lot of low fat muffins plus I have the best vegan chocolate cake/brownie recipe that is really rich. Definitely not healthy but delicious when you want to treat yourself. If you cook it for under the recommended time, it turns out almost like a fudge. Plus it's cheap to make Let me know if anyone wants the recipe.

I also like to make veggie tacos quite a bit, using red kidney beans instead of meat. Pasta with vegetables mixed in it. Roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Bircher muesli is great for breakfasts or any time during the day.

That recipe looks delicious. I'm going to try it.

Aw, there a lot of tasty things you can make if you're on tight budget. You could try Indian Dal. Google the recipe if you're interested. Basically I just use red lentils, a can of chopped tomatoes and spices. It ends up being really filling and tasty and it won't cost you very much

Anything meal or dessert. This thread isn't very active and I thought sharing our favourite recipes might be good so we can all try something new. I'm always looking for inspiration from others.

Parisia: I would love your brownie recipe aswell!! I made Vegan brownies a few years ago and they were amazing! I have tried to make them again on several occasions but they have been nowhere near as good!

EXOskeleton: That sounds so yummy! I need to stop being so lazy with making vegan food!

What is you guys favorite vegan breakfast food? I like to make smoothies but sometimes i'm way too lazy!

one of my all time faves is a chickpea-coconutmilk-curry. it's so easy and so yummy.
here's a recipe I found online http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Cre...a-Curry-205289 I just don't use any soy sauce in it. and actually I prefer not to buy ready made curry paste, but put it together myself, unless I am feeling lazy, which happens quite often lately hehe

for breakfast I usually eat some muesli or toast/bread with some vegan spread and some vegetables. I love smoothies though! there is this super simple mix of soymilk and a banana which I always make when I have a hangover.

oh and my favorite muffin recipe comes from http://www.vegalicious.org - which is my favourite vegan recipe site, let alone for their beautiful pics of the food! anyway that's the recipe

I don't eat a lot in the morning so usually just a quite bite of something is fine, like peanut butter or fruit (esp. frozen dark sweet cherries ).

I made 'overnight oatmeal' for the first time last night, and could be a good vegan option for breakfast. Basically you soak your oats in liquid (I used almond milk because it's lovely and sweet) overnight, and then serve in the morning with your topping of choice. I had mine with a sliced banana and a small amount of agave nectar (vegan alternative to honey) - super delicious!

I love vegan food and find really great recipes, the only thing that bothers me is the majority of them don't show the calorie content i.e fat, sodium, sugar, carb grams. I know this food is healthier for me but I would still like to see the calorie content. Does anyone else have this problem?

to be honest, no. just as long it's a balanced meal (ie: vegetables/protein/carbs)

The breakfast suggestions sound great! Belowen I'm going to try overnight oatmeal, and I have heard amazing things about almond milk!

Do you guys have any suggestions about Vegan cafes/restaurants in Paris? Or just somewhere that could cater for Vegans! I'm visiting for a week at the end of July and am a little worried about finding great places
