Vegan recipes for your growing child

‘Vegan’ is a word that denotes exclusion of meat, meat products, milk and milk products, eggs and honey – basically no animal and animal-related byproducts. As we all gear up to celebrate World Vegan day on 1st of November, here are some quick, interesting and yummy vegan recipes for your growing child.

Tofu Veggie Toast

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 small carrot grated
  • 1 tbsp chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp chopped capsicum
  • 2 tbsp mint coriander chutney
  • 1 tbsp chopped spring onion
  • 2 tbsp crumbled tofu
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, chopped
  • Black pepper and salt to taste
  • Mixed herbs to taste
  • Oil, as required

Method

• Combine grated carrot, tomato, capsicum, crumbled tofu, garlic, spring onion, black pepper, salt and herbs in a bowl.

• Take a slice of whole wheat bread and cut the sides. Now cut the bread in to two triangular halves, repeat the same process with the other bread slice too.

• Apply mint chutney on each triangular slice and add on the veg mix.

• On a non-stick pan, apply very little oil and cover the pan with a lid till the bread turns brown on the underside.

• Once brown, serve with mint chutney and a hint of tomato sauce.

Mini Beetroot Capsicum Uttapam

 Ingredients

  • 1 cup dosa batter
  • 4 tbsp grated beetroot
  • 3 tbsp chopped capsicum
  • Turmeric powder (haldi), ¼ tsp
  • Red chilli powder, ½ tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil, 2 tsp

Method

• Grate the beetroot and chop the capsicum into fine pieces.

• In a non-stick pan, add few drops of oil and sauté grated beetroot and capsicum with turmeric and red chilli powder. Add salt. Do not overcook.

• Remove the veggies from the pan and let the veggies cool down.

• In the same pan, pour a spoon of dosa batter to make a mini uttapam and let it cook for some time. Make sure it is thick and spongy – when holes start appearing on the top, sprinkle the veg mixture and cover it with a lid.

• Flip it and drizzle little oil to make sure it does not stick to the sides. Repeat the same process for other uttapams.

• The uttapam would start lifting up from the sides once cooked.

• In the same pan, add semolina and roast well for about 5 minutes.

• Now stir in the strawberry beet mixture and cardamom powder.

• Add in some almond milk if the mixture does not bind. Make sure the mixture is not to dry or not to soggy.

• Once done take off the heat and let it cool down for 5 minutes.

• Now make small round balls out of it and place it on a small stick and make a lollipop out of it.
