hello, friday! this week has been one of the busiest weeks i’ve had in a long time. instead of letting the need to prepare dinner stress me out, i chose to indulge in the necessary break away from work! eating well and feeling energized is a necessity for maximum creativity. :) and i think these meals definitely did their job this week!

monday: pomegranate kale salad
tuesday: jumbo stuffed shells
wednesday: chana masala
thursday: grilled beet burgers
friday: tofu stuffed avocados

what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?

monday: healthy hashbrown casserole
tuesday: triple stacked quesadillas
wednesday: fresh grilled veggie tacos
thursday: borlotti bean mole (we used sweet potatoes)

vegan garlic scape pesto

June 19, 2014

vegan garlic scape pesto

to me, there’s nothing more exciting than discovering a new vegetable. when these beautiful green curls showed up in our CSA box this week, i had to get a little help from you on what they were and how to use them! how have i overlooked this precious veggie all my years?

i’ll be using scapes all week, but my first goal was to make a delicious pesto. and delicious it was! full of fresh summery flavors, it’s bold and bright yet light and refreshing. last night, we used it atop our tofu omelets (yum!), and tonight i’ll be using it on a pasta dish. the nutritional yeast gives it a wholesome, cheesy taste and the toasted cashews give it a great texture and nutty flavor.
