Not eating it yet, but about to start work on a big pot of mushroom risotto.

Yum--I'll be right over!!

Do I need to leave the butter out when I cook it for you?

I love that you asked this question!

Well, I'm not completely a vegan, but it's true that I don't usually consume butter, so it may be a bit of a shock to my system.  Not sure how much butter you would use in this dish, but maybe cut the amount in half?

And I like your use of "when", not "if".    :D

Usually 250g for six serves - LOTS OF BUTTER.

I could use olive oil instead for the frying. It won't taste AS good, but I also don't want to make you unhappy or ill!

Green bean casserole.  Green beans are usually relegated to a side dish, but they actually go well at the center of the plate.

I made a kidney bean/beet/millet burger topped with some cheddar cheese on a sprouted grain bread, topped off with some guacamole that I also made from scratch.

Made gluten free pizzas last night - Started with Trader Joe's gluten free pizza crust, used organic everything - took olive oil, combined with two cloves of garlic, and brushed each of the 3 pizzas with it - then, used marinara sauce, red peppers, onions, cremini mushrooms - and topped with almond cheese - very tasty!
Note... upon further inspection, the almond cheese from Trader Joes contains milk products (it is lactose free, but does have casein!!!) - gonna have to find another one - have used something from Whole Foods in the past that is a totally vegan cheese - have to swing back by there and see if I can find it

A bag of frozen fruit from the dollar store (bananas/strawberries/banana) with some soy milk, blended in my $800 blender. (JK)

Ratatouille I made yesterday in my Instant Pot.  (Sauté the onions and garlic, add the rest and high pressure for 8 min.).   I think I am going to add some Northern Beans (white beans) out of my freezer  to it for some protein.

Tonight we're having tacos. Corn tortillas with retried beans, mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and onions, diced raw orange bell pepper and topped with a roasted salsa.

Spanish chickpeas and rice for lunch. I've probably made this dozens of times because it's so easy.

Butter beans in lemony garlic and tahini sauce over some quinoa with lemon juice and zest mixed in.  It's a weird mix of flavours, but tastes really good.

Bulgur salad! I love bulgur, it soaks up the flavor of whatever it is mixed with and has a great chewy texture! Very cheap too!

Shahi paneer with naan.  It's a buttery, heavily spiced dish made in a creamy onion base sauce with large chunks of Indian type cottage cheese floating in it.

Some of them are! The frosting has gelatin and some flavors have dairy. Unfrosted strawberry, blueberry, and brown sugar cinnamon are the okay ones I think?

I don't think that any pop tarts qualify as OK.  They can be kinda tasty, but they're not really 'food' any more than wallpaper paste.

I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used the dry kind. Surprisingly delicious and easy to make.

Mine were store brand, anyway. They are a fairly entertaining food-like substance, you must admit.


For penance, however, I shall have steamed Brussel sprouts for supper. With butter, so not vegan but still vegetarian. Lunch was both vegan and actual food - kale and broccoli salad with pepitas, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds.

Defrosted sauteed cabbage and onions from my CSA this past summer, chopped dill pickle, fried vegan sausage, on warmed whole wheat tortillas at 10:30AM.  I was hungry and couldn't wait for lunch.   (:

Olives and beer.


Also supper was prik khing with tofu. However, lunch involved the first red meat I've had in 4-5 weeks (burger).

I approve. Have you tried olives IN beer? They make cheap beer palatable.

Tried vegan sushi bowls for dinner last night. Sushi rice, carrot, edamame, avocado, green onion, cucumber, wasabi, soy sauce and pickled ginger. DH and I both loved them and he's no vegan.

I made a mozarella pizza with chickpea dough all made in a frying pan. Way easier to make than a regular pizza and adds protein to an otherwise low protein recipe.

This is vegetarian, not vegan.

Loosely (very loosely) based on a ploughman's lunch but for dinner.

Sourdough bread, olive oil, dukkah, capsicum slices, cucumber slices, couple of olives, a sliced pickle, a few cherry tomatoes, a bit of leftover tzatziki dip and a few slices of Aldi low fat cheese. (Aldi cheeses are usually vegetarian)

That looks delicious! I often have hummus, pita chips and veggie slices for dinner. It's my standard I'm Not Cooking meal.

That's sounds delicious! Sadly hummus is not a staple in my fridge but a block of cheese is. Might see about having some on hand now we're heading in to summer.

Today's lunch was quick, easy and vegan: tin of chickpeas rinsed and drained, mixed with some halved cherry tomatoes, chopped fresh parsley, olive oil and lemon juice. And a bit of cracked black pepper. Yum!

Mujadara (lentils, rice and caramelized onions) with side of lemons wedges from my friend’s garden, cilantro. Greek yogurt if I had any. Will pick some up as it meal prepped 3 good lunch servings including tonight’s dinner.

Thanks for this topic!  I'm coming around to the conclusion that I really have no business eating industrial meat or dairy (at least, way less than I currently do), and this is great inspiration!

I made a vegan cream of broccoli soup last week that was amazing.  I took this recipe, bulked it up with some potatoes, and added nutritional yeast for umami goodness.

Dinner was vegetarian, not vegan:

Potato salad with fresh herbs (chives and parsley) from our garden, plus a small finely chopped red onion. The dressing was a mix of whole-egg German mayonnaise and Greek yoghurt. Plus a few slices of Aldi low fat cheese (which is vegetarian) on the side.

Homemade lentil soup with brown rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and onions.

We are 100% vegan and save a ton of money by eating vegan. Our weekday breakfasts and lunches are always the same too. Protein + fruit smoothie and oatmeal for breakfast and baked tofu (in bragg's and balsamic) for lunch with steamed veggies and black beans. Dinner is either a tofu scramble with tortilla, soup, tofu stir fry, veggie pizza, or some other whole-food plant based concoction.

Rice cooked with broccoli with chickpeas and two fried eggs. Oh, and a bit of chips with it. All seasoned with an spicy herb mix.
