plant based dinner ideas

a couple of our meals were so good last week, that they ended up back on our plates this week! we started mixing in a few spring veggies to our meals as well and they have been so delicious. i’m in no hurry to say goodbye to butternut squash and winter kale though. :)

monday: simple tomato soup
tuesday: chala masala
wednesday: green powerhouse pesto plate
thursday: baked farro with butternut squash
friday: red pepper rapini with white beans and grits (sans the egg and served with tavorite tofu instead)

this week’s meals have been both delicious and superbly nourishing. cold weather hit again, so i immediately jumped back in to making soups and using hearty grains like farro and millet. isn’t it funny how our food and cravings change with the weather? it’s tough to say, but our favorites would probably have to be the miso tahini soup and baked farro with butternut squash. yum yum!

monday: creamy broccoli white bean soup
tuesday: green powerhouse pesto plate
wednesday: 9 vegetable hot & sour soup
thursday: baked farro with butternut squash
friday: miso tahini soup

monday: beet, endive & quinoa rainbow salad
tuesday: whole roasted cauliflower with chala masala
wednesday: immunity soup
thursday: black bean and beet mushroom burgers
friday: sweet pea and pearl onion pesto

oh, happy friday friends! we’ve been eating tons of seasonal root veggies and beans over here (though we cheated a little this week with some fresh tomatoes). i just got word from our local csa that they’ll be starting up again soon. i’m so looking forward to spring vegetables, but will try to soak up the last few weeks of winter roots as much as possible!

monday: tomato cobbler, made with my favorite biscuit recipe
tuesday: whole roasted and spiced cauliflower (sans the sauce)
wednesday: vegetarian ‘chicky’ parm (i subbed daiyga cheese and used a flax egg to make this vegan!)
thursday: chana masala with jasmine rice
friday: root vegetable hash – yum!

favorite green smoothie

March 4, 2014

favorite green smoothie (2)

i pretty much drink a smoothie every day. with my favorite handheld blender, they’re so easy to make! i just pile my ingredients into a glass, hit it with the blender and slurp away. i can sip on one for most of an afternoon, in between hopping around with bear and trying to get some work done. each smoothie is usually a little different, but today i’m sharing with you my favorite green smoothie.

favorite green smoothie (3)

kale & mango green smoothie

ingredients:

- 1 kale leaf
- 1/2 cup mango (frozen or fresh)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla cultured coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 banana
- 1 cup almond milk (or just enough to slightly cover the ingredients)
- dash of cinnamon or cinnamon flax seed oil

directions: blend and be well!

favorite green smoothie (1)

side note! speaking of so delicious, we also recently tried their new organic coconut milk fudge bars. they are OH-mazing! 80 calories a bar means i get to have one every night. :)

are you a smoothie drinker? what are you favorite ingredients?

happy valentine’s day my little sweet potatoes! i’ve been beyond excited to discover the first mess this week. i’ve been drooling all over my keyboard as i scroll through laura’s vegan archives, and have even been able to try my hand at a few of her recipes this week. i’m happy to say that i have a few new favorites myself and can’t wait to start cooking my way through her blog!

monday: chana masala
tuesday: veg chicky parm (made vegan by using substitutes)
wednesday: favorite tofu – topped everything this week with it!
thursday: red pepper rapini with white beans and grits (made vegan by omitting cheese & egg, topping it with above tofu)
