Vegan Cajun Chickpea Fritters

Cajun Chickpea Fritters PinThese vegan cajun chickpea fritters are delicious adult dinner pancakes chock full of protein and fiber. They’re also gluten free since they use chickpea flour instead of wheat flour. Although, be sure all the other ingredient you use are also gluten free.

They pair well with wilted spinach, a side salad or healthy veggies. Or you can do what we did and eat them straight off the griddle or as a main dish.

We used an electric griddle instead of frying them in a saute pan with oil, which cut down on the calories and fat a little. Plus, we were able to cook most of them at once instead of a few at a time.

We also drizzled our Vegan Ranch Dressing over them, which was yummy.

Baked Tempeh and Broccoli

Baked Tempeh and Broccoli PinThis Baked Tempeh and Broccoli recipe is a colorful, healthy plant-based meal with ample leftovers for busy weekday meals. It’s somewhat like a stir fry in it’s look and texture, but you bake it in the oven instead of in a wok or on the stove.

Tempeh is a minimally processed soy product that’s also high in protein. Each serving for this recipe has 11 grams of fiber, 15 grams of protein, 155% RDV of Vitamin A, 126% Vitamin C and 19% Iron. That’s a lot of nutrition for 299 calories making this a great weight loss recipe.

We put the Baked Tempeh and Broccoli over brown rice, but you could eat it plain without rice, with white steamed rice, or put it over spaghetti squash to cut down on the carbs and calories.
