Aside from hummus and salsa, what else can we use for good vegan veggie and/or fruit dips? Id love to hear some responses on this, as almost all commercial dips are dairy based.

For fruit, you could whip up some Mori Nu soft tofu with frozen berries and a little agave (for sweetness) in the blender or food processor.

Also for veggies, Mori Nu firm whirred up w lemon juice, dill, (or another herb) w salt and pepper. You can always add garlic, onion powder and/or paprika to taste.

Quick thousand island dressing is vegan mayo w/sweet pickle relish (to taste) and a dollop of ketchup.

Hi! Thank you so much for the earlier replies! So I'm trying to figure out what's the #1 thing beginners wanting to go vegan focus on... could it be right that they look up recipes first ( thinking that's the first step), and then later "encounter challenges" such as : Do I get enough nutrition values, what do I do with my leather shoes, how do I tell my friends and family, etc. ? Would love to hear your feedback on this...

Best regards from
Ole

My friend invited me to similar dinner like this at one special restaurant in our city. But I'm afraid it would be expensive and I'd get hungry afterwards. 
Is there any rich meal vegan/raw?

We hit the 10,000 mark... then kept going

Hi guys,

Can you believe we now have over 12,000(!!) members. 

Wow! I was here when this community just had a few hundred members. 

I've been really busy of late, though when I pop in, the community seems to be doing really well, which is great.

It seems almost everyone is choosing categories that fit their posts, reporting recipes that are not vegan to moderators (which is the best way to get a post addressed), and being respectful to one another. 

On behalf of everyone here, thank you!

It keeps the community nice for all of us. (It says I'm the "Owner," but I'm really just a steward.) Early on I was hoping for the community to largely self-moderate (similar to real-life communities), and I'm pleased to see it mostly does. We all have incentive to keep it a nice place to be.

As a reminder, you may have already seen (and hopefully read) the Vegan Recipes Guidelines for Sharing. If you haven't, you can find them here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+BruceAchterberg/posts/jHjPFxBkia3

If you know of any posts that need addressing or seem questionable, please let one of the moderators know; a list of moderators can be found here: 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/108709631341136809511/members/moderator

(That link can also be found in the community tagline, and in the guidelines for sharing, so it's easy to access.)

You're also welcome to share any suggestions or ideas for improvement in the Questions and discussions category:

Thanks for sharing! Happy cooking. :)
(I'll use that term to encompass raw food dishes, too.)

QUESTION: can I use spelt flour for making cinnamon buns? I found this recipe but want to tweak it a little for myself. I will also be using hemp milk instead of almond milk

What is your purpose for adding the coconut flour +Brandon Stuckey? If it is just because you can I wouldn't in this recipe. I don't think the results will be that great. This is a straightforward bread recipe, and relies on the gluten in the flour to get the end result. Spelt also contains gluten, which is why it is perfectly fine to do a straight swap with wheat flour in recipes. Although spelt will absorb liquid differently so you may need to use less liquid so your dough isn't too wet. Coconut flour contains no gluten so won't assist in forming the dough structure. I am all for experimenting with different flours. I do it all the time, but unless you have a specific reason for using a gluten free flour I don't think this is the recipe to do so.

There are times when due to my chronic fatigue (and other associated health issues) mean I am very hungry but simply not able to cook myself proper food. Ideally in these instances I would be getting a good amount of protein but sadly often the easiest things for me to eat are thing like toast.
What are some good, no effort (and I really mean this), easy to grab protein packed, snacks and small meals?

I could do more smoothies I guess. Just making sure I have the ingredients handy for them!
I do have a grill, and yes that is a much less energy intensive (by my standards) way to cook. Good thinking.

Hello fellow vegans! I know this is a community about #vegan food, but I thought you might be interested in my new post series. It's about creating a cruelty-free wardrobe. We don't eat animals, why should we wear it (if only accidentally?) Learn how to tell synthetic materials from animal derived materials. Let's co-create a #compassionate wardrobe!

Hi Viral Sheth, thanks for the feedback. I totally agree, no use to make it a religion. Just highlighting the benefits and joy of it, thereby some people will come to the conclusion themselves. :)

Hi I'm Ole, and very interessted in vegan nutrition and basic challenges new vegans face when starting on a Vegan diet or going the full Vegan lifestyle... I wish to help people, and I was wondering if you think it would be usefull to offer a "coaching" program so to speak, where newbies can get all their personal questions answered by a Vegan Nutritionist? What do you think? Appreciate your feedback.

Hey my girlfriend isn't getting enough calcium in her diet. She eats lots of broccoli, spinach, kale, tofu, and almond milk, but she's still only getting half of what she needs. She'd prefer something natural rather than calcium supplements. Any suggestions?

Did she get tested and shown to be deficient? Also weight bearing exercise is helpful - even astronauts lose bone mass in space with calcium supplements.

Is rice and almond milk Vegan? Im not sure because I'm a raw Vegan and need some tips.. Beginner here

Probably. 

Most would be; check the ingredients, though. Checking ingredients on things will become like a second profession for you. ;)

I'm not sure if those milks would be raw, though. They may be, but they may also be heat treated so they store longer. I'm not sure. 

You can ask that here, or on www.Quora.com

School resumed on Monday, I decided not to make lunch because most classes will begin next week, which was not a smart idea. There was NOTHING on campus to eat. Please share some of your favourite vegan lunch ideas

Renee, 

I asked that question here as well:

Depends where you live, but if you have any kind of specific diet and want to eat, it's generally helpful to assume you'll be able to eat nothing wherever you go. Not always the case, but it saves you from not eating, which isn't a fun long-term solution.
