Homemade pizza with basil pesto, zucchini, and tomato (all from the garden!) and fontina cheese.

Not exactly health food, but so delicious!

Oh, and a bunch "sneaked" bites of watermelon as we cut it up

Last weekend I made chili with corn bread. Chili recipe I followed was https://en.vedicencyclopedia.org/wiki/Vegetarian_Chili

I used the frozen tofu option it mentioned and canned kidney beans and canned diced tomatoes for convenience.

For the cornbread I just got the mix from trader joes and used almond milk and a flax-egg (ground flax and water) instead of milk and eggs.

It was yummy!

My favorite vegan go-to meal when I am a lazy turd:

1 bag frozen broc
nutritional yeast
sriracha

I nuke the broc and then top with nutritional  yeast and sriracha.  It is reasonably tasty, quick, and much cheaper than takeout.  I probably eat this a couple days a week when I'm running short on time and/or don't have the energy to prepare a proper meal.

smashed potatoes with fake meat and avocado aioli.

Basically boil small yellow potatoes until soft, smoosh them onto a baking sheet with a mug and coat with oil/salt/pepper.  Bake the taters at 450 for 20 min.

Add warmed fake meat of your choice (we used Upton's jackfruit), and avacado aioli(blend 1 avacado/just mayo/garlic/lemon juice).

I tend to scoff at vegetarians, but I started going without meat on the two weekdays where I teach evening martial arts classes and holy crap. I look fabulous. I kind of wish I didn't have so much blood lust, because I think I'd end up looking like a movie star if I ate vegetarian every day. Too bad, though. I just love devouring the flesh of the dead far too much to ever give it up.

Just finished a delicious meal of rice with bean medley salad (three kinds of bean, cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, onions and peppers), ratatouille, and a side of fresh radishes, cucumber slices, and a small lettuce salad. Yum!

I'm following because I have been a flexitarian (99% easy going vegan + the rare seafood) for six months now and I'm psyched to see recipes!

Those damn vegetarians and vegans with their compassion!

Kidding aside.. Maybe watch Earthlings and see what happens. And maybe look for good substitutes on the days that you want to eat meat. Here in the Netherlands we have "fake" chicken pieces that are just like chicken for example. And there are burgers and stuff like that that taste like meat but without the cruelty (and usually healthier than meat).

"Triple Mushroom" from a local asian fusion place.  It has three types of mushrooms and bok choy in a savory sauce.  It is tasty and not as greasy as the typical garlic sauce type of veggies.

If health impacts are persuasive to you you should check out "The China Study" or "Eat To Live"  I'm really more concerned with the humane practices side so "Eating Animals" was really compelling to me but may not convince you.

Agedashi tofu! (Well, the meal wasn't 100% veg as the broth that goes with it involves fish flakes.)

But, I had to mention it as this is the first time I have tried preparing tofu where I've tossed it in egg/milk mixture and then coated it in panko crumbs before pan-frying. Usually I'll just try to pan fry as is, and getting the surface to brown takes forever. Breading first took under 5 minutes per batch, and was quite delightful. In hindsight, considering how many times I've fried tofu, it's a bit sad it's taken me this long to consider breading as a viable option! I also may next try baking tofu after breading, and see how that comes out.

I'm very much an omnivore, and really enjoy eating tofu regularly, it's just taking me awhile to figure out proper preparation for it.

Lentil shepherd's pie is one of my favourite dishes. Has totally replaced ordinary shepherd's pie for me. I was just talking about it the other day and am looking forward to cooler weather to have it again.

For today, it was lunch on the balcony before it got too hot to be outside. Tomato and feta salad, oakleaf lettuce with olive oil/balsamic vinegar and an apple for dessert. Which I ate before I ate the rest of it because I'm a grown-up and I get to eat my dessert first if I feel like it. :-)

 Not for today, but for later in the week when I won't have time to cook, I've set up a vegetarian baked pasta in the crockpot. It'll be leftovers the first time we eat it!

Not eating it yet, but roasted vegetables (namely broccoli and summer squash) and marinated tempeh for breakfast. It's in the oven.

Last couple of days of the month and I'm really trying to not shop too much and just use up what I have on hand. I have so much stuff on hand but tend to not feel any urgency about using it unless it's fresh stuff. But even tins and boxes do go off eventually (although I'm not at all precious abut dates and will eat lots of things years after the box tells me I shouldn't). So last night I had courgette and carrots to use up but having had stir-fry type dinners the previous two nights, didn't really want to do that and it's too hot to have the oven on. Couldn't find a tin of kidney beans (I am sure I still have two) to make the old reliable kidney bean, carrot and cuming burgers and decided to see if it would work just as wel with butter beans and courgette. Subbed Italian seasonings for the cumin and added a red onion. And half of the feta I still had in the fridge, too. And then a couple of dried tomatoes chopped up small. They were quite soggy though, so then I added some ground almonds. They were so tasty. Think I'll have sauteed carrots and onions this evening, one of my favourite things.

Tonight's dinner was wild rice, pan fried broccoli and a chinese omlette. Yum! All mixed together to resemble fried rice.

Lunch was homemade teriyaki tofu sushi. Teriyaki tofu was from a packet though.

Supper tonight was groundnut stew: chopped white potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, a can of  ro-tel, cooked in soy sauce and a little lemon juice in the instant pot for 8minutes. Then stir in a half cup or so of crunchy peanut butter and stir to melt the PB into a yummy peanut sauce. It's quite utterly fab.

Lentil stew (like lentil soup only thicker). Lentils, onion, carrot, celery, spinach, tomatoes, water, spices...will have it over plain couscous. Grapes for dessert.

Just created my own pasta sauce! I got the idea from the Vegan Corner youtube channel. Basically you cook veggies and blend half of it to make a sauce. I did tomatoes and eggplant and blended it with some soaked cashews for creaminess.

Do drinks count? I made an awesome crockpot chai concentrate with some Chaga and Astragalus. With a little frothed almond milk, it is delish!

I also made a bunch of buckwheat pancakes for hubs to throw in the toaster oven for breakfasts this coming week. Oh and some stewed plums to top the pancakes :)

I'm guessing you mean for the Alfredo, but I'll give both just in case :)

Here is vegan alfredo:
https://silk.com/recipes/fast-easy-fettuccine-alfredo
I don't add pepper because I think it is overpowering and I add 1/2 teaspoon of pesto (my secret to all Alfredo). Also, sometimes I'll soak 1/2 cup cashews and blend it with the sauce since Mr. YK is looking for heavier food to gain weight.

Hot cocoa:
warm 1 cup almond milk in saucepan and add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 1.5 tablespoon chocolate chips. My almond milk was already sweetened, so no extra sugar was needed.
