Vegan foods for Orthodox Christian Fasting

Vegan foods for Orthodox Christian Fasting

Orthodox Christians abstain from all animal products during fasting seasons, and as I find food I want to try I will include them here. I will leave comments as we eat them. Spark has great recipes for those of us who want to do without animal products.

Scones (Whole Wheat, Vegan)
Very Good 4.7/5
(11 ratings)

By nature of being vegan, this recipe is cholesterol free, though I suppose you could change that and use regular butter and milk instead if that's what you have on hand.

This is a plain recipe that will make a biscuit-like scone, but you can jazz them up with whatever you have around: cinnamon, blueberries, dark chocolate chips, etc.

I usually add about a cup of blueberries. (If you do this, add .125 cups of blueberries to your nutrition tracker for each serving)

Cookbook creator says: These cookies were exceptional! They were easy to make and really tasty. The best thing is I was satisfied with only one...must have been the whole wheat flour.

This is a traditional miso soup that is perfect for those times when you need something with just enough flavor to not overwhelm you, but not so little flavor that it sucks!

This is a fast and easy way to get your veggies in. You feel like you're indulging, and you aren't. Everything is healthy (YES, even the Olive Oil, which is a GOOD fat).

Cookbook creator says: Plan to use low salt broth and some of the variations shared by members on this one. Like the basic recipe. Used to hate chick peas. Am beginning to love them.

This has all my fav's and tastes great. If you like, whir your portion in a blender to create a lovely, creamy soup.
