Oil Free Vegan Recipes

Grilled Plantains No Oil PinOil free vegan recipes abound. Lots of recipes use oil to sauté veggies, but you can easily replace the oil with vegetable broth, wine or water for a much lower calorie alternative.

If weight loss is your goal, cutting out oil is essential. Ounce for ounce, oil packs more calories than almost every other food. And because it’s mostly processed refined fat in liquid form, it doesn’t take up any space in your stomach so it’s not filling in the slightest.

According to Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Michael Greger and most of the plant-based experts, oil is not healthy. It’s highly processed plant fragments that impairs arterial function and causes cell damage. It also raises your cholesterol. It’s best to avoid it as much as possible [source].

Some of our vegan recipes still use oil to sauté veggies, but we’ve removed it from most. Any time you see oil used for sautéing, just substitute it with vegetable broth, water or wine and you’ve made yourself an oil free vegan recipe. And please let us know about any recipes that we need to update to remove the oil.
