Vegetarianism is becoming more and more popular with each passing year. Whether you've been a vegetarian for a while and you're looking to spice up your diet or you've just become a vegetarian and don't have any go-to dishes, you should never hesitate to try a new recipe. Here are a couple of delicious vegetarian recipes you'll definitely want to try in the near future.
A classic vegetarian recipe that you should make a staple in your diet is hummus. It's fairly simple to make your own hummus. All you need to do is toss the ingredients in a food processor. The main ingredients for hummus include the following: chickpeas, tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic cloves, table salt, and water. If you use dried chickpeas, you will also need baking soda. While making hummus is simple, if you want your hummus to have a smooth texture, you will need to remove the skin from the chickpeas. You should try removing the skin from the chickpeas while you're doing something else like watching TV or talking on the phone. You can also spice things up by using other ingredients, such as sweet potatoes and avocado.
Crispy Baked Tofu
Crispy baked tofu is a very versatile dish that every vegetarian should know how to make. You can snack on crispy baked tofu or add the pieces to a salad or stir-fry. Not only is this recipe delicious, but it is also very easy. All you need is extra-firm tofu, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and water. If you want your tofu to be extra crispy, you will also need cornstarch. You'll also need a heavy weight like a large can to weigh down the tofu before cutting the tofu into pieces and marinating it in the other ingredients. Optional ingredients that you can use to make crispy baked tofu include the following: minced ginger, minced garlic, lemon or lime juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and barbecue sauce (thinned with water).
