Oil-Free Waffle Iron Hash Browns
If you happen to have a waffle iron in your kitchen, then these hash browns will make excellent use of it. Just shred some red potatoes in a food processor and arrange over your waffle iron to produce these distinctive looking vegan snacks. N.B. – The recipe provided goes to great lengths to stress that you use your judgement as to whether to use oil or not, depending on how your waffle ironbehaves, and although the recipe says “oil free” if you think they’re going to stick, oil your grill first if you don’t want to be scrubbing your waffle iron for a whole evening.
When you consider the growing popularity of alternatives to potato fries it’s surprising these carrot fries haven’t become more prevalent. The recipe couldn’t be simpler: just cut the carrots into “fry” shapes and season as you see fit (they’re very versatile when it comes to flavourings), coat them oil and bake them for 45mins. A delicious and healthier alternative to a classic snack.

An air-fryer is required for this spicy and exotic Asian inspired small plate that combines seasoned fried tofu with a piquant Mongolian sauce. This may actually be one of the trickier snacks to prepare on this list but it’s also probably one of the tastiest if your taste buds are more on the adventurous side.
No-Bake Chocolate Chia Energy Bars
Something a little sweeter compared to all the savoury so far, these energy bars are quick to prepare thanks to no baking being required.

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
This vegan snack takes minimal prep time and just half an hour in the oven to produce a tasty and hearty little snack.
