    Here’s a falafel recipe I just made this morning, I added brocoli to mine as well and and not use any oil or flour. To not use flour, I just didn’t add the vegetable broth, so the mixture was already dry....however I did add some panko to the mixture to make it easier to roll into balls. They taste great!

    I also made some without them rolled in panko amd like them much better!

    I will be upfront and say I am not vegan. I have many food restrictions due to medical reasons and allergies, so a vegan or even vegetarian lifestyle does not work well for me (I have tried). That said, I love reading threads like this and watching vegan/vegetarian YouTubers for great ideas on how to increase the amount of produce I eat and for recipes. I try not to eat a ton of meat (for a stirfry I will use half the meat normally called for and double the veg) and I do make vegan/vegetarian meals often (LOVE an easy veggie pasta with roasted garlic hummus as the sauce).

    So I hope you all don't mind me hanging around for ideas and tricks!

    I hope you find some suitable recipes for you!!❤️

    The Israeli salad looks so beautifully delicious!!!

    I also want to try making Lebanese fatoush. A friend brought it to a BBQ and I fell in love with it.

    My friend used her Mum's recipe, but that looks similar, except my friend's salad was in smaller pieces like yours (except for the fried lebanese bread pieces which were larger like in the pic).

    I'm sure I'd do the same with the Israeli salad.

    I'm finding it's SO cheap to eat vegan.

    Even with all the nice new "fake meat" products appearing every time I go to the supermarket which are sometimes more than the meat alternative.

    But with more of us buying them, the price keeps coming down, and they're on special a lot.

    Yes, it's so cool how there is far more choice these days.

    And we know loads more about food, nutrition, etc. And we can look things up that we don't know.

    Had a great half-hour chat about all this with a dietitian this morning, actually!

    She said I'm doing really well.

    We agreed the best plan now is if I get annual blood tests for:

    Vitamin D
    Iron
    B 12
    Calcium.

    All were excellent a few months ago. Been vegan now 6 or 7 weeks, I think, with no change as far as I can tell, except feeling a lot happier.

    I'll get tests done on Wednesday. Stay tuned!

    Yesterday I made tri-colour quinoa, firm tofu (pan-fried in sesame oil), Shanghai veg mix, with Chinese five-spice, and Szechuan seasoning.

    "5-years-ago Me" would never have thought I'd be doing that.

    But my brain wanted to chuck those things together that were in the kitchen. :smile:

    I'm here because I thought about going vegan and I was just looking at a few options of creative foods. You guys have some awesome suggestions and I might be making my decision very soon. I think I may be trying to go vegan just to wear this shirt lol. Nonetheless I'm really down I have a lot of underlying issues that I think going vegan can help.

    Hi, @jbeck0433 thanks for talking about this!

    Yes, it's just really cool to see ideas of foods, and how people use them together in different ways.

    Hi @Athijade Feel free to lurk or comment as you wish!

    I got into this more by looking at the Volume Eating thread, in which people make meals a lot bigger by adding vegetables to them.

    It's a way of eating "more" but not adding many kilojoules/calories.

    Ooh, veggie pasta with roasted garlic hummus sauce. There's one for future reference! Thanks.

    I ate naked glory sausages on Sunday on Burgen bread with a little ketchup... Indistinguishable from a normal sausage sandwich. 😂

    Not a vegan but mondays are vegan / meatless mondays for me.
    Beef tripe soup, but with oyster mushrooms to imitate tripe and sliced smoked tofu to imitate shredded meat. Spice accordingly and delish :)

    I'm vegan and currently doing the Happy Shape course which is a calorie controlled eating plan with lots of recipes from The Happy Pear (who are twin brother chefs from Ireland - you can check their YouTube channel).
    I'm less than 2 weeks in and have already lost 3kg (6.6lbs).
    They do have some very tasty recipes including soups, curries, lasagne with more recipes released as you continue the course.

    I am not vegan, but I did make vegan lentil soup tonight. I highly recommend this...especially if you like huge servings of food with minimal calories (366 calories or so). It fills about 3/4 of a dutch oven, with the recipe saying that it is 4 servings. I usually end up with 6 servings, because it is also a very hearty soup.
