What Vegeta is cooking for you?
The next generation of low-calorie vegetable recipes will come from the internet, as the company announced it has partnered with Reddit for its latest vegetable series, Vegeta: A Recipe for Low Carb, Healthy, and Delicious.
The series is designed to be the go-to source for anyone looking for low-carb recipes.
It will feature recipes from Reddit’s /r/vegetarian community and also be a curated collection of curated recipes from other popular Reddit communities.
Vegeta is a low-glycemic, low-sugar, vegan recipe platform that enables users to share low- or no-carb, ketogenic, low fat, paleo, gluten-free, and nut-free recipes on their own subreddits.
The bot has a variety of recipes from the most popular communities, like /r.vegetarians, /r, and /rfood.
Vegan foodie and vegetarian cookbook author, Julia Child, has partnered up with the company to create recipes for the series.
Child, who lives in the UK, has been a vegetarian for more than 40 years.
“Vegetarian food is one of the most accessible, affordable, and accessible dietary choices,” Child told TechCrunch.
“With this project, I hope to provide the best recipes for those who may not otherwise have access to them.”
For the next episode, the bot will be partnering up with a number of subreddits to host a weekly vegetable series.
For example, the Vegeta subreddit has a weekly episode that features a recipe from Reddit for a delicious vegan burger.
A recipe submitted by /r/.vegetariowalk.
The subreddit has over 40,000 subscribers, and a bot called /r/, which Child refers to as her “VegetariWalk,” has over 100,000 followers.
Child said the bot is currently using the subreddits for a weekly update on how things are going.
“We’ve got a few other recipes that will appear in the next couple of weeks, and we’ll be doing a weekly post on this one too,” she said.
“It’ll be up there with some of our other top-tier recipes.
Hopefully this will become the go to resource for the community.”
The bot has also created a number low-fiber, low calorie vegetables, including cucumber and spinach.
They are made with an organic, raw beet juice and a nutritional yeast powder to provide a more nut-friendly, low carb alternative to meat and dairy.
The bot also has a few low-fat recipes, like spinach and cucumber with arugula, and avocado and pomegranate seeds with pumpkin seeds.
This low-gluten, low protein, vegan dish, which also has the name Vegeta, is low in calories.
Veggie-based recipes will be coming from Reddit users’ own subreddits, which Child said will help promote the series and get the word out about the bot.
“It’s always fun to see what people are creating in their own subreddit,” Child said.
