plant based dinner ideas

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)
friday: favorite lentil soup

plant based dinner ideas happy friday, lovelies! most of our meals this week were perfect for winter weather. full of warm spices and hearty ingredients. our favorite by far was the big yoga bowl. it’s so simple, though i had never thought about layering ingredients this way. i added kale and roasted red peppers, and it was fresh, filling and fun to eat. i’m already planning for another version, where i think i’ll add some roasted beets and turnips to the mix.

monday: southwestern breakfast hash (for dinner!)
tuesday: pumpkin curry with chickpeas
wednesday:  homemade falafel with leftover curry
thursday: the big vegan bowl
friday: yummy yoga pot

december desktop + iphone calendars (4)

it’s december! it’s december! this month’s calendar was inspired by cooler weather and our beautiful smoky mountain pine trees. i wanted to use some teals and a little lime green this month, instead of the traditional christmas green and red. i think they turned out looking very ski-lodge-winter-cabin-y! i hope they will make you feel cozy and snug. :) xo, bonnie

pomegranate season is upon us which means i’m throwing pomegranate seeds all over the place (especially after i finally figured out how to de-seed them!). our favorite meal by far this week was this most delicious pomegranate, kale and wild rice salad with walnuts by pinch of yum. i left off the feta and replaced it with some tempeh croutons which made it a light and refreshing yet filling dinner for us. also on our menu this week was a thai red curry (something i just through together) and pumpkin mole. tonight, i’m planning on making this creamy tuscan white bean soup. it’s getting chilly over here! perfect soup weather. :)
