Last blog post was Vegan High Volume Low Calorie recipes. Two people straight up were like, “where’s the high calories recipes at?!” I got you. High calories meal, it’s my pleasure! I shared these with Mark.

While this isn’t a vegan bodybuilding “bulking recipes” post per se I did try to get a little extra protein in here or there. In the end I think it was only 100g protein or 10% of the calories. Feel free to tweak these.

If you’re the type of person that can’t ever eat enough then maybe skip the red lentil recipe below because it’s a ton of food. You might get full half way through the dish & not hit your calorie goal. The smoothie on the other hand is a relatively low volume for the amount of calories you’ll get.

Vegan Coconut Protein Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
This is so decadent! Not even joking. I did make this on the thicker side. Feel free to thin it out with almond milk. Pure dessert, pure heaven. It’s like a silky smooth pudding smoothie. This is the recipe I would take to the deserted island where you only get to eat the same thing everyday.

Vegan Thai/Ethiopian Fusion
Dude, worlds largest bowl of food right here. If you read my Vegan Ethiopian recipes then you’ll know the proper way to make this dish. But I didn’t have the ingredients to make ginger and garlic paste so I figured red chili paste would be my lazy way out. In the end it did not taste as epic as actually following the recipe but still a very hearty meal. I have a secret desire to eat more red lentils but since it’s a secret I’m not allowed to tell myself. ha ha ha. Anyway, very glad I got to enjoy some red lentils.

Vegan Buttered Pasta
Now this isn’t regular buttered pasta. I was mentally committed to making a vegan butter sauce then remembered that I only had vanilla almond milk. No plain almond milk. So I did my back up plan. I basically made a butter gravy (is that a thing?) by melting a ton of vegan butter and mixing in water and corn starch. I added spices of choice. I don’t know if buttered gravy is something anyone else would like but it was soooo damn good. I would totally make this again.

6 TB vegan butter, 6 oz pasta, 1 cup water, 2 TB corn starch, 1/2 ts vegan better than bouillon, 1 ts garlic spice blend (Tuscan blend)

  1. Cook 6 oz dried pasta
  2. Melt vegan butter in skillet
  3. Add 1 TB corn starch to cold water and stir til dissolved. Pour in skillet and whisk. Bring to a boil and continue to whisk. Add spices of choice + bouillon.
  4. My sauce wasn’t thick enough so I added 1 more TB corn starch to 1 TB cold water then added to the skillet. Once it boiled it thickened up. You can add tiny amounts of water at a time if this is too thick for you.
  5. Mix sauce with pasta. ENJOY
