Title: What Vegetarian/Vegan food are you Eating Right Now?
Post by: NinetyFour on January 28, 2014, 01:37:01 PM
I have mostly enjoyed the "What are you eating right now?" thread.  However, because I am a vegetarian, I thought I would enjoy a vegetarian/vegan version even more.

I'll start off:

I am eating steamed carrots as well as sauteed onions and steamed collard greens.  Soon, I will begin feeling the effects of all the vitamins and minerals from this meal traveling throughout my body to do their good work!

I just ate the most typical Dutch dish there is; it's called hutspot. It's carrots, onions and potatoes. And I always throw cheese in it, instead of meat.

Made a lovely lentil soup for dinner.  I use the basic ingredient list from the Moosewood Cookbook, substituting with what is in the fridge or cupboard, tossing it all in a crockpot.  Accompanying it was challah--not vegan because of the egg in the dough and egg glaze brushed on top.

In November I bought a bushel of apples that have been living in my garage. We're at the bottom of the box and the apples are getting soft.  So I made applesauce over the weekend (processing it in a water bath) and will make apple chutney tomorrow.  I am going to try this recipe:

Not vegetarian here, but working my way through a big pot of dal: pound of celery, half pound of chopped frozen spinach, pound of lentils, garlic, salt, and yellow curry paste to taste cooked in just enough water to cover. Yum for days. Had some with cornbread for lunch, which was geographically confusing but delicious.

Black bean soup. I found a pound of dry beans in the cupboard and wanted to use it up before I go back on the low carb. I put a pound of turkey bacon in it it because I wanted to use that up too, but it's not  required.

I had to google chayote, as I don't think I've have ever heard of it before!  Looks interesting.

I am eating steamed carrots and quinoa.  I'm down to the last few items in my kitchen, as I do not want to buy more groceries this month.  I've spent $178.45 and my goal is to keep it under $180.  Glad tomorrow is February!!

Chole.  I love this recipe!

http://low-cholesterol.food.com/recipe/i-cant-wait-for-chole-25632

I have renamed it "Everybody Loves Chole" because I cannot imagine anyone not loving this stuff.

The recipe calls for cans of chick peas but some of us choose to begin by soaking chick peas the night before and cooking them in the morning.  Also, there are a bunch of spices but if you have an Asian grocery near you, there is no need to break the bank to acquire them.

Nom, nom, nom...

Oh, I almost snorted milk when I read this post! I've been a vegetarian for over twenty-five years. I poured a bowl of cereal this morning but forgot to eat it. I just now got up, dumped milk on it, came back to the computer and saw this question. I'm ashamed to report that at this time of day I'm sitting in my bathrobe eating a bowl of "naturally flavored" Chocolate "gluten free!" Chex! Despite the presence of a full box of Almond Milk right beside it, I absent-mindedly grabbed the family jug of "moo-cow" milk to boot.

Full disclosure: I bought the Chex for a recipe at Christmas, didn't use it all and re-discovered it in my pantry last night. I can't let it go to waste, can I? I was dressed once today, but I have to change for a board meeting this afternoon, so I just threw on a robe between costume changes, like I'm an actor or something...

It probably doesn't translate, but the timing was priceless on my end. Thanks for the chuckle.

Not right now, but just a little bit ago, I had oatmeal and quinoa with a couple splashes of soy milk and some blackstrap molasses.  I cooked up a big batch of oatmeal (3 cups when dry) yesterday, and had cooked a big batch of quinoa on Saturday.  So I had about 1.5 bowls of half oatmeal and half quinoa this morning.  Yum.

Made Stolen Granola earlier in the day.

http://www.bojongourmet.com/2010/06/stolen-granola.html

Isn't it the best? I always throw some popped Quinoa and chia seeds in. I did make a vegan version for our granola bar at our wedding that was just made with coconut oil. It doesn't have the butteryness but it went over really well with everyone!

I'll be keeping up with this thread for inspiration. We aren't vegetarians but tend to eat very little meat, and when we do use it it is more of a flavor or accent. I would say about 90-ish% of our cooking is meat-free but still use butter, milk and eggs.

Working through bulk order of: organic corn flour, pot barley, quinoa, Pinto beans.

If anyone has some favorite recipes and would like to share, that would be awesome!

On the menu tonight; Roasted butternut squash, roasted carrots and Green Potatoes - perhaps with a lentil soup.

I finished off some roasted fennel/farro/orange/arugula salad for lunch.

Dinner tonight is rutabaga and split pea soup.

Both recipes are from Isa Does It! a cookbook I'd highly recommend for easy-to-prepare vegan eats.  The butternut squash alfredo, sweet potato gnocchi, sweet potato kale curry, and black eyed pea and collards tacos are all delicious!

Lentil tacos. 1 cup worth of lentils gave me 4 meals, and a heck of a lot more filling than the rice+bean burritos that were my Mexican staple.

Tonight is going to be our leftover veggie curry (rice, mushrooms, asparagus, and green beans). Kiddos will get quesadillas and leftover mac&cheese based personal preference.

We still eat meat, but oddly more for lunch than dinner.

I'm drinking tea and eating vegan oatmeal snackies that I made this afternoon for the kids, and then promptly fell in love with myself. I started with a banana-nut oatmeal cookie recipe and replaced the egg with ground flax and water, the butter with coconut oil, the AP flour with whole wheat, and then lowered the sugar by half. It was such a hit that I've compiled a few batches of the dry ingredients into jars so I can make more pretty quickly.

Dinner was portobello mushroom burgers on homemade buns, roasted potato wedges, fruit, and (non-vegan) cole slaw.

Earlier I made soup with all the veggie remnants in my frig and some vegetable stock. I puréed it with my immersion blender, added sriracha and diced avocados. There was cauliflower and potatoes (white and sweet) in there so the end result was creamy deliciousness. Plus the frig is nearly empty -- just in time for a trip to the farmers market in the morning.

Wow--sounds really good.  Mind sharing the recipe?  Thanks.
I got it on epicurious, but like all epicurious recipes, the recipe is not meant to be followed.  So I looked at the reviews to see what other people added and just started adding a lot of things that added color (the bell peppers, etc.)  The green onions were fantastic.  I really don't think you can go wrong.  Next time I want to add pomegranate seeds and my brother says to add diced apples too.  The only thing I wouldn't know how to improvise on is the dressing -- so here's the basic recipe as a starting point:

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Quinoa-and-Black-Bean-Salad-12245

I've had a kitchen contraption called "the alligator" that I received as a gift and never used.  That thing is GREAT for dicing up vegetables FAST & EASY.

Grumbly brumbles last night after a long day, ask girlfriend "WHAT DINNAR HAS U!" whilst brandishing a hefty oaken club.

Girlfriend, "Uh... I made some rice earlier?"

"AH HAH! WICE!" says I. "ME EAT WICE!"

Hunted and gathered in the fridge for some green onions (tops were a little sad, but bottom half of the stalk was good), half of a red onion (center layer was trying to do something sciency, tossed that), drained black beans, soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, salt and pepper, and threw it all in a wok. Two fried eggs on top, then smothered it in sweet red chili sauce.

It's sort of a bad Korean bibimbap, but by the end I had turned from a caveman back into a normal person. And I cleaned out half of the old veg in the fridge while I was at it.

Me again.

I am eating kamut, white northern beans, and a steamed yukon gold potato.  With a little olive oil drizzled on top, and some sea salt and black pepper.

On the side, I am munching on some raw sunflower seeds.

My diet is pretty simple these days.  I like it that way.

Not eating it yet, but for lunch today I have a paneer curry.

The sauce is 1/2 jar rogan josh paste, two zucchini, three big tomatoes and about a cup of cashews, cooked together in the slow cooker then blitzed with a stick mixer. Then I stirred through pan fried paneer and roasted sweet potato chunks.

It's every bit as good as it sounds.

I'm always very intrigued by your diet, especially when I read your journal. Would you mind occassionally sharing photos of your meals?

Hi Happier!  Nice to know that my diet intrigues you.  I would think many people would consider it quite boring.

I'm not very tech savvy, but sure, I will try to post a photo now and then.  Too late for this meal, though.  It's already down the hatch!

Your meal sounded delish!

My SO eats paleo, and this was simple enough to substitute the broth for vegetable broth and make it vegan. I enjoy slow cooking as it saves me the time. Put the kale in towards the end, or steam it and stir it in at the end.

Just polished off a bowl of brown rice, stir fried in a tablespoon of olive oil with garlic, with about a cup of pinto beans (cooked previously from dry in pressure cooker)  and topped off with a generous amount of Chonga's salsa.

So cheap, so satisfying, so easy, and so delicious.

Positively Mustachian!

Not eating it now, but dinner last night: Quinoa with black beans (just from a can, heated in the microwave with some leftover tomatoes), sweet potato, sauteed peppers and onions, white cheddar cheese (I'm mostly vegan but cheese...damn) and cilantro on top, inspired by my favorite dish at a local restaurant, a breakfast burrito with most of the same ingredients. Yum! Quinoa is so easy to make ahead and goes with everything.

Kamut, chick peas, some toasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, a spash of soy milk, and a drizzle of molasses.  Warmed up in the microwave.  Tasty and lots of protein.

So, having read this thread, where would a 'newbie' start?

For the last 50+ years vegetables meant potatoes, canned green beans, corn and peas. Oh, and an occasional green salad (iceberg lettuce w/ dressing).

There are obviously so many things out there that are food but I don't have a clue.

Also, cooking for one.

In that case, I'd start with some more 'exciting' vegetables in familiar settings - so, make yourself a sandwich with your normal ingredients (chicken? cheese? lettuce?) but add in something more exotic like avocado. Make a pizza with whatever you would normally have, but add in olives and capsicum too. This way you'll expand your range of veges without freaking out your tastebuds completely.

And budgetbytes is the best site ever for recipes - most are easy (though there are some there that are a little more difficult too). You'll find plenty with new ingredients to try.

We also have a recipe index in the 'off topic' section which could be helpful if you're looking for recipes your fellow MMMers have already tried out and loved :-)

try fixing a "blue plate special" type of meal without the meat.  Baked sweet potato + green beans + cornbread.
Baked beans + broccoli slaw + corn on the cob + dinner roll. 
Mac & cheese (with veggies mixed in, if you're daring!) + salad. 

Beans can sub for ground meat in many recipes.  Chickpeas  sauteed in taco seasoning work well in tacos or burritos.  Lentils in spaghetti sauce are a great sub for meat. 

otherwise, keep things simple.  Mozzarella + sliced tomatoes + basil and a balsamic vinegarette.... delicious.  Carrots (and/or celery, red bell pepper, broccoli, etc) and pita with hummus.

if you like sandwiches - grilled cheeses can be dolled up with a variety of fancy breads and veggies/spreads added in.  mashed chickpea sandwiches are a favorite here - google chickpea of the sea.

You've completely made me hungry and I just ate.

I often use lentils + taco seasoning in place of meat for my tacos.
Mushrooms is another great replacement. Especially love baby bellas and Portabellas.
Sauteed root veggies are always a good + healthy plate filler. Zucchinis, squash, carrots, bell peppers, eggplant...

I usually have the fridge stocked with lots of veggies and fruits. My approach is just to throw it all together, whatever is available. Oh ya, with spices. Pink salt, pepper, usually an Italian blend does the trick.

And I use a lot of olive oil. Coconut oil is another popular use because it has a high burn rate. And a little goes a long way.

This is the season for finding creative uses for things in the CSA box.  Success! Tonight I made Spiced Kohlrabi Fritters and Spicy Cabbage Masala.  Admittedly I lacked a few ingredients...Hing?  I made tahini and lemon sauce for the fritters (no plain yogurt in the house at the moment.)  I added peas to the cabbage dish--shown in the photo but not in the ingredient list.  I also lacked a fresh tomato so I used some diced canned tomatoes in the masala.  Hey--it's all good!

The cabbage recipe already calls for five to six cloves or garlic as well as several layers of spices.  It was fine without the Hing---although I will be on the lookout for the spice the next time I am in an Asian grocery.

I just had a delicious vegan dinner of roast summer veggies and potatoes and a side salad of tomato, cucumber, onion, and basil. And now I'm having a fruit plate (banana, nectarine, kiwi) with some decaf iced coffee with almond milk for dessert. Mmmmmmmm!

I made some veganized, low-sugar, whole grain oatmeal cookies today. The kids eat them to replace the overpriced and over-processed granola bars we used to buy by the truck-load.

I make my own granola bars nowadays-the following recipe but with reduced sugar condensed milk.  Never seem to find breakfast appetizing first thing in the summer, but always have them in the desk drawer...  Recipe is quite adaptable- and can be made with a box of muesli at a pinch.

I did not have ras el hanout around, so used some "Arab Spice" and amped it up with some red pepper flakes (1/2 tsp).

Used 400g can of tomatoes rather than fresh and ate with some arab bread rather than making the pilaf.

Normally, I don't like eggplant too much (texture), but I liked this after cooking on a very low simmer (Tagine style) for maybe 45 mins.  It was goooood.

Not sure if that would be the same- I find arab spice a but more sweetly fragrant- but it may be very similar given history of trade between Arabia and India...

Please post on how it works out. 

I buy it ready made locally, but Arab spice blend is here:

2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Breakfast sounded delish. Tomatoes... I usually just slice them and eat them with EVOO, S&P. or toss them in a salad. Course chop them and throw them in an frittata or a saute. I am sure you could find lots of indian dishes requiring tomatoes. Or just add them to a big bowl of pasta.




Dinner: Mushroom, Potato & Bell Pepper Frittata topped with Moz. Served with a mixed baby greens salad topped with cranberries, walnuts & peach-poppyseed dressing. And a crescent roll. Twas perfect.

Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/skillet_gnocchi_with_chard_white_beans.html

I've messed with the recipe in many ways and they all turn out good:

Spinach instead of chard
I prefer using fresh tomatoes, but canned is fine
Omit beans or omit/ reduce mozzarella

Made a curry thing by accident today.  Garlic and chickpeas in a pan,  added tomato paste and a ton of curry powder,  cumin,  and turmeric,  salt and pepper,  then added heavy cream until it got to a nice consistency,  and then threw in some kale until it got a bit with.  Served over a cup of cooked basmati rice.

*Shudders* if it is edible, let me know! I have tried quite a few recipes for nutritional yeast based cheese from dehydrated slices (which weren't not bad but were definitely not cheese) to several cheese sauces claiming to be amazing and not even edible.

That looks good!  And I would also use cilantro instead of garlic and skip the smoke stuff.  I can't do spicy (hot) stuff, so I would have to tone down those ingredients some as well.

Just for the lolz, last night I made an effort to pay attention to what I was putting in my mushroom risotto, and see if it still turned out just as well when I made it completely vegan. It sure did! My version of the dish has more mushrooms than rice, so it's very hearty.

Last night I had dahl makhani with yoghurt flatbreads. The dahl makhani was amazing, probably due to the large quantities of butter I used in my make-it-up-as-you-go-along "recipe". Yoghurt flatbreads were less tasty than last time, possibly due to not adding enough salt to the dough. They're fried in butter, so... it was tasty and not all that healthy.

The yoghurt flatbreads were from the cookbook Plenty by Yottam Ottolenghi and it is GOOD. Full of awesome vegetarian recipes.

Yum--sounds delish!!

Assuming that was about my vegan mushroom risotto, I'll make it for you when you come to Perth (I assume your itinerary will consist mostly of eating delicious food with the Perth MMMers, correct?). But I'll add parmesan to my bowl ;-)

Yes, it was in response to your risotto.  I thought about asking if there was any leftover and invite myself over.  ;-)

Oh, yes, sounds like the perfect itinerary for my Perth visit!

And I wouldn't say no to Parmesan either--I am usually but not always on a vegan diet.  But I do tend to put on weight by just looking at cheese.

This morning...and now afternoon I've been enjoying "eggy breakfast bread" (sort of tastes like French toast, super easy to make and no eggs! http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/10/11/eggy-breakfast-bread/) with some chai tea. And browsing these forums for hours. I'm enjoying relaxing on my day off but it is probably time to get off my butt and get outside!

I eat 98% vegan, hard to be perfect, but this mostly whole foods plant based diet makes me feel a lot better than how I used to eat. I'm also trying to cook a lot more this year. I've been working my way through a decent batch of garlic soup this week. I'm desperately trying to recreate the garlic soup I had at a Christmas Market in Vienna last year. My version was okay but too potato-y and...needs more garlic!

It turned out wonderfully, and I really enjoy it.  I might change the recipe slightly and make a different batch.  My wife used the celery so it was a bit short in the crunch, but I love it anyway.

Made some Naan to go with it, which wasn't quite as good.  turned out like a big biscuit.  Not entirely vegan though, as there was an egg and some yogurt in the bread.

I'm not a big fan of chickpeas, unless they are in channa masala or the crunchy-snacky-sriracha ones.

As for lentils, I haven't really tried out all the different kinds; I usually just end up with green lentils because that's what's available at the store, haha.

In my supermarket I can buy both whole green lentils and split red lentils.
When I make soup, I use both. After 15 minutes of cooking, the red ones become a puree, the green ones don't, so you get a soup with a nice texture.

The same soup is available at Bulk Barn, which is where I'll get it in future, I'm just not out yet. If I wanted to go extra savings, I could buy green and yellow split peas, barley, rice and baby pasta and make it myself. Maybe I'll price that out ;)

Don't have the recipe with me today, but I'll look it up on the weekend and post it here :-)

So it took me ages. But here it is:

VEGAN CHOCOLATE LOAF

Ingredients
•   1 1/2 cups plain flour
•   3 tablespoons cocoa
•   1 cup caster sugar
•   1 teaspoon baking powder
•   1/2 teaspoon salt
•   1 teaspoon white vinegar
•   1 teaspoon vanilla essence
•   5 tablespoons vegetable oil
•   1 cup water


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix first five dry ingredients together. Make three depressions in the dry ingredients - two small, one larger. Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla essence in the other and the vegetable oil in third larger depression.  Pour in water, and mix well until smooth.

Transfer to a greased loaf tin, and bake on middle rack of oven for 35 minutes.  Cool. 

Add icing, as required.

Thanks so much, I'll be making that chocolate loaf this weekend!

My lunch right now is whole wheat pasta with caper marinara sauce.

Black Bean Burg on whole wheat and a little broccoli forest growing out of an island of hummus upon my plate. There is a little raft that is a pickle slice.

A super simple stir fry of cabbage, carrot, garlic and ginger with peanut butter, soy sauce, sriracha, lemon juice, rice vinegar and seasame oil as a sauce.

It should not work as well it does or be nearly as creamy.

Popcorn made on the stovetop in a blend of canola/corn/coconut oils (which is supposedly the popcorn oil blend used at theme parks like Disney to achieve a buttery flavor).

And vegan chocolate loaf thanks to HappierAtHome!!! Love it, and added chocolate chips :)

This weekend I made Inner Goddess Chocolate Truffles from Pinch of Yum, and Toffee Cinnamon Cookie Bars, Almond Butter Cups and Almond Butter Balls all from Oh She Glows.

I've been eating more and more plant-based lately and feeling much healthier for it. I think my body is finally getting some nutrients it's been missing.

Hey all, joined the forum last week. Just going through subforums and saw this!

Not that I normally cook with crazy stuff, but today I ended up making: Orca beans, sweet potato and onion in tomato sauce over kamut. Never done either the orca beans or kamut. Good occasional alternatives to the regular rice 'n beans.

One of my favorite snacks lately is firm tofu with sriracha.  I usually just eat it cold, but you can fry up the tofu also.  Maybe this is closer to vegetarian bachelor chow than a 'meal' but I can't argue with deliciousness.

I eat the same thing, although with the fried tofu.  It also works fine with sweet chili or plum sauce.  Tofu goes with everything!

Grill some jalapenos to char the skin and soften the texture. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with lots of seasoned salt. Squeeze lots of lime over them. Delicious. If you don't like the heat, cut off the tops and scrape out the seeds first. I eat them plain but they'd probably be good in tacos or as a topping for other types of foods.

Question for the vegans: What do you eat for breakfast that isn't all bread/carbs?

For me breakfast is normally vegetables.  I especially like beet(root), spinach and sauerkraut (especially now that one can get the latter sriracha-flavored.  Sometimes miso soup and sometimes non-vegan yogurt.  Sometimes leftover beans with hot sauce.

Not actually vegan, but I make a seed and nut loaf which is (surprise!) mostly seeds, nuts, rolled oats, olive oil, a little honey... It's pretty fantastic and fairly well balanced in terms of protein, fat and carbs compared to 'normal' bread. I usually have it with homemade almond butter (also vegan) for even more good fats and protein.

I personally don't think a bread/carbs breakfast is bad for you if you stick to whole grains/complex carbs, also see:
http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/carbohydrates/
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/imagepages/19529.htm

But to answer your question (I don't really think about carbs so maybe this will not be answering your question, but these are other things than bread etc)
- Smoothies! Add greens like spinach/kale and fruit, soy/almond milk (I also add flaxseed oil for omega-3)
- Soy yoghurt with fresh fruit
- Scrambled tofu (just like scrambled eggs but cruelty free ;)). You could add some bellpepper or mushrooms or other veggies.
- Rice waffles with hummus/peanutbutter/cucumber/ytomatoes/jam/pick anything vegan
- Scrambled veggies (I like bellpepper/mushrooms/eggplant/zucchini
- Chickpea pancakes (never tried these though)
- Wraps with veggies made from lettuce instead of tortilla's
- Leftovers from the day before

Good luck! :)

It's more that I want variety, not that I'm avoiding carbs. I just don't want to eat bread every morning for breakfast... and that's what I tend to do when I'm eating vegan.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I need to try scrambled tofu. Nom.

I have to say that I'm a smoothie breakfast type lately but there are so many options, also to make for lunch. I haven't tried oats yet but this also sounds and looks pretty nice (overnights oats, with berries or other fruit). Pancakes are also an option, you can make these without egg and with nondiary milk, no problem.

I would like to try this really easy recipe someday (vegan pancakes with banana and oatmeal): http://www.ellentv.com/recipes/2012/04/23/banana-and-oatmeal-pancakes/

The scrambled tofu is so good!!! I read in a cookbook that you can use Kala Namak or Himalayan Black Salt to make it more egglike (it mimics the taste of eggs?) but this is not necessary.

Good luck! I would love to hear if you tried something new (or have new options for me to try).

You can add avocado to a smoothie, too. Not only does it contain health fats, those fats help the absorbtion of the healty substances in the green vegetables.

1. I think someone already suggested a tofu scramble. You can do this and add vegan breakfast sausage, hot sauce, potatoes, onions, green peppers (whatever you like really). Throw it on an English muffin and make a breakfast sandwhich. You could also roll it up on a burrito (if you use a corn tortilla rather than flour, its masa based not really a carb at that point I don't think, my husband also makes tortillas out of tapioca flour- I haven't tried it yet). As you said no/less carbs, you could make a breakfast bowl and pre-make this and throw it in a Tupperware and have it ready the next morning. 

2. I also think someone already said smoothies, but you could also just do chopped fresh fruit in a bowl.  If you needed something extra you could add granola, honey, nut butter. 

3. Breakfast banana split.  Cut a banana as you would for a split. Add your favorite nut butter. You then add fresh berries (or frozen) granola and sprinkle with a little sugar or honey or agave. 

4.  Vegan breakfast quiche. And cut it in to portions to have each day.

Yeah, pretty good advice! I already eat a lot of avocados so I tend to not put it into the smoothies although this is pretty nice.

I haven't read through the whole thread, but I made this Tuesday: http://www.bojongourmet.com/2013/02/curried-red-lentil-kale-and-sweet.html

Curried lentil, kale, and sweet potato soup. It used up a lot of odds and ends in the fridge (half a bunch of kale, some yogurt, half a can of tomato paste) and it was DELICIOUS. I halved the recipe, had a heaping serving for dinner and then enough leftovers for lunch for the rest of the week. Highly recommended, and pretty frugal ingredients!

It's taken me ages to see this and respond, sorry! But here it is :-) based on http://www.mynewroots.org/site/2013/02/the-life-changing-loaf-of-bread/ (http://www.mynewroots.org/site/2013/02/the-life-changing-loaf-of-bread/) but I prefer my version.

Seed and Nut Loaf
•   1 cup / 135g sunflower seeds and/or pepitas
•   ½ cup / 90g flaxseed meal
•   ½ cup / 65g hazelnuts or almonds, chopped
•   1 ½ cups / 145g rolled oats (replace with quinoa flakes if you want the loaf to be gluten free)
•   2 TBSP / 30g chia seeds – black, white or mixed
•   3 TBSP / 17g psyllium husk meal (also called psyllium husk powder)
•   1 tsp salt (I’ll often make it two tsp salt for taste)
•   1 ½ cups / 350ml water
•   3 TBSP olive oil
•   1 TBSP honey or maple syrup (I’ll often use an extra ½ TBSP honey for taste – still considerably less sugar than shop-bought bread)

Combine dry ingredients and stir well.
Whisk wet ingredients together, stir into dry until well mixed.
Line a loaf tin with baking paper (leave plenty of overhang) and press mix into the loaf pan.
Leave to sit on the kitchen counter for two hours, up to 12 hours is fine.
Heat oven to 180C and bake loaf for 30 minutes.
Use baking paper to lift loaf out of pan; turn onto fresh baking paper and place back in the loaf pan ‘upside down’.
Bake for a further 30 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before slicing. Freezes well. Best toasted.
I usually make two loaves at once as they’re not large and we pull a few slices out from the freezer most days.

Petit pois (a bag of em, frozen) with rosemary, sage and garlic.

Fry white onions and garlic in a pan for a reeeeally long time, then add a little bit of fresh rosemary and sage, and some rock salt. Then tip in the petit pois and continue to fry for a reeeeally long time. This is a great one to have on the go if you're busy doing other things around the house. I could eat a whole bowl of these as a meal.

Also the website www.thefirstmess.com is absolutely amazing. Sometimes not very frugal, but mostly, because it's all fruit and veg, pretty frugal. The roasted cauliflower soup (with lemon) is flipping great.

Fry white onions and garlic in a pan for a reeeeally long time, then add a little bit of fresh rosemary and sage, and some rock salt. Then tip in the petit pois and continue to fry for a reeeeally long time. This is a great one to have on the go if you're busy doing other things around the house. I could eat a whole bowl of these as a meal.

Also the website www.thefirstmess.com is absolutely amazing. Sometimes not very frugal, but mostly, because it's all fruit and veg, pretty frugal. The roasted cauliflower soup (with lemon) is flipping great.

I will try this, sounds delicious! And thanks for the link to first mess, will check that out (first impression is good!).

Currently eating leftovers of what has become my new favorite meal:  Coconut Chickpea Curry.

It is crazy easy and so amazingly delicious:

1 onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 can coconut milk (the full-fat is divine, but we usually use the low-fat version)
1 can drained chickpeas
a lot of yellow curry powder
Cilantro, dried works if you don't have fresh
2-3 bay leaves
Salt and Pepper
*other veggies: cauliflower, carrots, etc.

1.  Sautee the onion.  Add garlic and any other veggies you are using (right now I'm eating it with carrots- delicious, but it was great with cauliflower last week.  Also totally filling and delicious if you don't add any additional veggies).
2.  Pour in coconut milk + 1/4 can of water.  Add drained chickpeas, curry powder,  bay leaves, and salt+pepper. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes (usually I cook a pot of rice during this time, and just let it cook until the rice is done).
3.  With about a minute left to go, I add the cilantro
4.  Serve over Rice

(We have sadly given up naan in our house due to my boyfriend's stomach's insistence that it has Celiac's, but that would be sooooo good for mopping up the plate!)

You can water this down a bit if you like it runny.

It freezes beautifully, reheats easily, and is so seriously delicious.  Love it!

Naanbread is delicious but in most there is yoghurt so I don't eat these. We have to go to a special health kinda store to go get the ones without and  generally just serve ciabatta or pita or something with curries. I read you can make your own though.

Last night, not right now, but the clean-out-the-pantry dal I made turned out really well.


Yellow curry paste (maesri brand, but from the freezer because I never use a whole can), onions, garlic, dash of fish sauce and lime juice. Pound of lentils, about half a pound of "fresh" (starting Tao wilt) spinach, about a quarter pound frozen mixed veggies (the cheap stuff: carrots, corn, green peas and green beans), and the dregs of some quick-cook barley I tried, maybe a cup or so. Delish.

Made vegan brownies at the weekend to bring to a picnic birthday party - everyone loved them and I will definitely be making them again soon. Recipe was from Deliciously Ella (http://deliciouslyella.com/raw-brownies/), haven't read this thread through yet so not sure if that's been mentioned yet. Basically just dates, nuts, maple syrup and raw cacoa powder all blended together. Fabulously chocolatey. Even if I didn't use the type of dates she recommends (added a tiny bit of water just to help them along) and used mixed nuts instead of pecans.

I also made a white bean salad (from mortgagefreeinthree blog (http://mortgagefreeinthree.com/2014/07/yasmeens-turkish-piyaz-salad/), which I really liked. Beans, tomato, parsley, black olives, red onion and dressing made from lemon juice, water, vinegar, tahini and garlic. I was surprised at how creamy the dressing was. Even tasted good the next day when I scoffed all the leftovers. :)

Last night for dinner we had black bean "burgers" (no buns, just patties and they were not at all burger-like but still tasty), a slaw salad (cabbage, carrots, a couple herbs and spices, and oil/lime/vinegar), and rice.

Kids loved it and it fed four of us for... I dunno... $2 or less? Beans were dried and therefore very cheap, cabbage is 59c/lb and we used maybe a 1/2-2/3 lb, 2-3 carrots is another negligible amount, rice... not sure, but also very cheap. Herbs were either from the garden or small portions of the huge bundles we get from local "ethnic" store for $1. I think the lime we used for dressing was probably the most expensive thing.

Making this tonight

Creamy Carrot Soup (serves 2) -- Oats are the magical ingredient in this soup. They give the soup a texture it wouldn't otherwise have and also impart a lot of creamy flavor without using actual cream. This soup also whips up in an instant.
1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup instant oats
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (such as fat-free soymilk)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp allspice
salt and pepper - to taste (optional)
In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of water, carrots, onion and oats over high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until oats are cooked and carrots are fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender, in batches if necessary, and blend with non-dairy milk until smooth and creamy. Add extra water or non-dairy milk if needed. Return soup to sauce pan and add spices. Gently reheat and add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
 
Note:  sometimes I add a little sweet bell pepper, other times I add a half an apple or pear.  You can sub a potato for the oats too :)

Corn chowder (from Joy of Cooking modified to be vegan)


Ingredients
2 cups whole kernel corn
1 can cream corn
1/2 cup chopped bacon (you can substitute 1 tablespoon butter or canola or grapeseed oil)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cups water
Salt and pepper
1/2 bay leaf
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups plus 1/2 cups of cold milk
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped parsley (optional)
Save a shopping List

directions
1. I cook this without oil
1. Put bacon, butter, or oil in a saucepan, and turn heat to medium-high. When bacon has rendered, or oil is hot, add onion and celery, and sauté until golden brown.
  Saute celery and onion in a dry pan over med to med high heat,  add a little stock or water if needed.
 
2. Add potatoes, water, bay leaf, along with a sprinkling of salt and pepper, and simmer.
 
3. While potatoes are simmering, mix the flour and 1/2 cup of plant milk together in a separate bowl. When potatoes are tender (about 30 minutes), bring to a boil, and add the flour and plant milk mixture. This will thicken the soup.

 
4. Add 1 1/2 cups of plant milk and both corns. Heat, but do not boil the soup.

5. Taste, and adjust seasonings. Garnish with the parsley, and serve.

It is from the website. I don't have either book, but am probably going to buy the newer one. I never know what to bring to a party, and all the recipes sound delicious.

Side note: I just tried the coconut curry soup recipe from the website and it was so easy to make. My cousin likes to brag about how it takes her all day to make coconut curry soup, but mine tastes just as good. These are the only two recipes I've tried from thug kitchen.

Not eating it *right* now but I am obsessed with steel cut oats (I like mine creamy so do 4 cups of water to 1 of oats) tossed with frozen cherries, a drizzel of honey, cinnamon and plenty of chopped walnuts.

Also, when in a pinch I love lentils; onions, garlic, tomatoes, lentils, carrots and potatoes all cooked together. So simple and so good. 
Another for when I'm pressed for time or ingredients: sauteed onion, garlic, chopped zucchini and tomatoes tossed with pasta.

We're back to our normal breakfast of quasi-Bircher muesli. Grated apple, rolled oats, natural yoghurt, bit of crushed flax seed, splash of milk. Mix in a bowl and leave overnight in the fridge. Then add half a chopped banana per bowl in the morning. Yum! It's also the only way that we make ourselves reliably eat 2 serves of fruit per day. Doesn't happen otherwise.

Lunch was homemade tabbouleh followed by a piece of halva.

Having a smoothie right now with spinach, blueberries, oatflakes, banana and apples for breakfast. For lunch I’m having whole-wheat bread with baba ganoush and snack tomatoes.

Made a vegan stew yesterday with seitan, carrots, onions, mustard, dark beer and other good stuff. Served this with stewed pears (is this Dutch?). Was really into the stewing for some reason. ;) There is plenty left so will be eating this today for dinner as well, served with some baked potatoes from the oven. Gotta get those carbs in. :)

Planning to eat this week for dinner:
-   some steamed plantains with refried beans, tomatoes, avocado and rice
-   sauerkraut mash with potatoes, pineapple and raisins with homemade applesauce.
-   pasta with grilled vegetables, sundried tomatoes and olives
-   red thai curry soup with chickpeas, roasted red bell peppers and spinach, witch baked bread and mango chutney

(Almost) every stew, soup will do. Just heat it up and eat with some rice/noodles/bread/couscous/wraps. Couscous, noodles and wraps are easy to make on the spot because it doesn’t take a lot of time. I personally don’t like to freeze the pasta or noodles so I make those separate or make more the day before. Sometimes I make too much rice (sometimes on purpose) and freeze this (separately) to add to a stir-fry last minute. Red pasta sauces are also good or ratatouille.

Yes noodles, couscous etc. are easy but I'm at work without a stove. Yes I could bring noodles cooked the night before but I ride my bike to work often and food transpo isn't that easy due to space and weight. (I don't like plastic, store stuff in pyrex)

I was thinking more one container heat and eat, take a bunch in when I'm not riding the bike. For sure soups and stews are a big one, I'll comb the web for recipes. :)

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).

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).

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. :-)

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.

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.

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 (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.

One pot pasta + vegetable + protein:

1. Heat some water in a large pot.
2. When water just stars to boil, put in a few eggs.
3. When water gets to a roiling boil, salt and throw in pasta.
4. Throw veggies (green beans, asparagus, broccoli rabe: I prefer ones that are easy to wash) into same pot and parboil ~3min. I have bowl of cold water nearby; bowl doesn't really need to get washed after this step.
5. My husband doesn't like eggs, so I threw a veggie dog in after the veggies are done.
6. Remove eggs after ~11min (I like the yolks a little soft) with slotted spoon.
7. Drain pasta.
8. In same pot, melt plenty of butter and sizzle some mushrooms.
9. Pour in store-bought pasta sauce: many brands need ~1tsp of honey for my taste.

Dinner tonight and lunch for the next two days.

Now that I'm aproximately 2000 miles away from the nearest Cafe Yumm, I've been trying to re-create the Yumm factor. I started with this recipe: http://talesofanamazonwoman.blogspot.com/2013/04/homemade-yumm-sauce.html (http://talesofanamazonwoman.blogspot.com/2013/04/homemade-yumm-sauce.html),

But for my tastes it has too much acid, so we cut the lemon juice in half, and doubled the garlic and added extra water. Really good hint is to pulverize the Almonds before hand to the best of your ability, or the sauce stays extra chunky. Occasionally we'll blend in an Avocado for extra creaminess.

Smoothie! After indulging just a bit too much at the christmas markets in December, I decided to declare January and February soups and smoothies months (smoothies for breakfast, soups for lunch). So far, I'm really glad I did. I do normally try to buy mostly local and there isn't much apart from apples around so to facilitate smoothie-making, I've resorted to frozen fruit. Sometimes you have to choose your battles. And much as I'd like to like green smoothies, I just don't.

I made a fabulous vegetable soup at the weekend as well, used loads more spices than I normally would and it worked out really well. Think I'll do spicy carrot and lentil soup this weekend, I haven't had that for ages.

I guess nothing at the moment, but last night, I made falafel burgers. Despite making falafel for several years now, I hadn't made them as burgers yet. Usually I just shape into balls or small patties to stick in pita bread.

It was my first time baking them instead of frying. I was nervous that they would suck, but they actually were pretty good. I defrosted my dough, turned on the oven to 450F, and stuck my lightly oiled cast iron skillet in there to preheat. I shaped the dough into patties and put them into the hot skillet. I put the skillet on the bottom rack and let go for 15 minutes. I then turned them and cooked them for another 5 minutes. The perfect browning on them - looked so much better than all the pics I had seen online of baked falafel (one of the reasons I didn't have hopes too high). I put the burgers on torta rolls with tzatziki, fresh spinach, red onion, and harissa. I was afraid the burger might have dried out, but omg absolutely not. It was moist and delicious. Husband and kid approved, they definitely want them again.

Tonight is another vegetarian dish - colcannon. To keep going, pretty sure both Tuesday and Wednesday are chana masala. Thursday I have no idea, but Friday is veggie pizza from Costco food court.

A few years ago, I came upon this recipe for falafel - http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/2011/01/falafel/

It is a good base to start with and learn from. Over time, I added flour to help bind and a leavening agent, usually baking powder. I use about twice as much of the spices as she suggests, but I like the strong flavors. IME, the dough should be very wet. You can just shape balls or patties with it. You may wonder how it will hold together in oil or survive being flipped, but somehow it does, and it makes for very moist and fluffy falafel.

Most important thing is to not cut corners and used canned or otherwise cooked chickpeas. The flavor is just miles off. You can freeze part of a large batch of soaked chickpeas for later if you want to. Falafel dough and cooked balls/patties freeze and reheat really well themselves.

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.
It's funny to read back over old threads sometimes (I find this one good for inspiration when I don't know what to cook) - I have no memory of this whatsoever but it sounds delicious. May need to make it again soon. :)

For today, I have a lentil salad with me. I've gotten more and more fond of eating lentils over the last few years but for some reason it never clicked that they can be a cold, summertime food as well. Had a taste of a really good lentil salad at a potluck type dinner a few months ago and decided I had to give it a go. Cooked and cooled lentils on Monday evening and made up two servings, both with tomatoes, scallion tops, and mozzarella. Then I made a pomengranate, olive oil, red wine vinegar dressing for the first one. Had that yesterday and it was really good, although the dressing should go more towards 1:2:1 than the 1:3:0.5 I used, I think. Today's portion has a lemon juice and zest, olive oil, red wine vinegar dressing. Forgot to add the garlic that I made sure to buy for it but oh well.

Try hemp hearts on avocado toast. So delish. I bet a dash of paprika or chili powder would be good too.
Would blue corn chips be considered healthier? ;) I'm a sucker for chips & guac.

I'm not sure any chips can really be considered healthy... well not in the quantity I eat them in at least :) I put salt, pepper, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes on the avocado - such a good combo, and use Ezekial toast as the base. I'll have to try the hemp hearts, thanks for the tip!

Just finished making some cous cous with courgette and tomatoe to bring to a potluck lunch tomorrow. I'm underwhelmed. I cooked the courgette and tomato with some garlic and onion. Still have a couple more tomatoes to add raw with some feta and then was going to add the lemon and olive oil dressing. I don't think it'll make it any better. Actually, since the cous cous will undoubtedly soak up the dressing, it may make it worse. Oh well. At least the lentil salad I brought along today went down well - can't win 'em all.

But, does anyone have any hints for good cous cous? It's my first time ever making it and I chose it because it's so simple and wouldn't involve cooking. Just covered it with double the volume of hot water, as per the instructions, then fluffed it up with a fork.

Today? 

Snacking intermittently on hardboiled eggs with salt, frozen strawberries (it's hot AF where I am), seaweed snack sheets, and applesauce.  It got cool enough I could pop some multi-colored carrots in the oven to roast, and I'll put dill and tzatziki sauce on them they're done, probably with some green salad.

It seems the trick to cous cous might be to always check the package instructions. I followed the instructions in the recipe I had, which said to use twice as much water by volume. When I looked at the package to double-check, it said to use 250ml for 250g cous cous, by volume that's about 1:1. No wonder it tasted a bit watery. Thankfully, it improved somewhat with the addition of the rest of the tomatoes, the cheese and the lovely lemony dressing I made. And mostly, presumably, by being left overnight. Still, enough people were hungry enough that most of it was eaten and there was just one portion left over, which I'm about to eat for lunch.

Actually did have avocado toast for breakfast today - whole wheat bread from Kroger ($2 for I believe 20 slices - not sure) and the avocado cost $1 but I only had half of it.  So about $.75 (rounded up) when you factor in the minimal amounts of Montreal Steak seasoning I put on it.

We cooked up a quinoa mix this week for lunches - quinoa, sweet potatoes, onions, red peppers, various spices.

Someone above mentioned chips not being all too healthy - see if you can find Beanitos near you.  They are, as the name implies, bean-based and pack a lot of protein.  Much better than the corn + oil chips that are fairly standard.  Costco had a sale this month (it might be over?) on 4th of July chips that were made with amaranth, some seeds, and some other ingredients (I can't remember) that were healthier than just corn.  A tad more expensive per ounce when compared to the Kirkland tortilla chips, but the sale brought it more in line.

Since this is my first post in this thread (new to the forums after lurking for a few months) - our goal is to buy veggie/vegan burgers if we can get them for $1/patty but we really strive to beat that when we can with sales and whatnot.  Unfortunately, Boca burgers are just pretty bad so it takes some creativity to find <$1/patties on veggie burgers.  The marsala burgers from Trader Joe's are a staple.

Yeah Boca burgers are loaded with so much junk! The Trader Joe's marsala and Dr Praegers burgers are ok. My favorite is Aldi's Chipotle Black Bean burgers, 4-pack for $2.79. Also have made these burgers from scratch (someone else on this thread recommended them) and they're really good, but takes a bit of time: https://www.budgetbytes.com/2013/05/chipotle-sweet-potato-burgers/

For lunch I had a piece of Raise the Roof Sweet Potato Lasagna which I made on Sunday. Last night when my DH got home from work, he had the option of making cube steak sandwiches or eating a piece of the lasagna. To my pleased shock, he chose the lasagna! (He is a meat eater, and I am not.)

Tonight for dinner it will probably be a sweet potato and asparagus w/homemade cashew butter (maybe sweetened with cinnamon.)

My wife makes it (and I'm not sure if she was following a recipe), but it seems pretty straight forward:

- 3 large tomatoes sliced up into little bits
- 2 English cucmbers sliced up into little bits
- A handful of fresh mint sliced up small
- Two handfuls of fresh parsley
- A fair amount of olive oil (between 1/2 a cup and a cup)
- Several splashes of lime (or lemon) juice
- Salt to taste
- 2 cups of quinoa or bulger
- 4 large cloves garlic
- 8 to 10 green onions finely chopped

We usually add a cup or so of beans in too.


Just cut it up, mix it all together and let it sit in the fridge overnight for the flavours to soak together.  No need to cook and no need to heat it up makes it awesome for summer.

EDIT - forgot the garlic and onions!

Blueberry salsa! Same as if you were making tomato salsa, but use blueberries and mash them up a bit with a potato masher or something similar. I also made tomato salsa because I had one huge tomato and all the other ingredients already out.

Tonight or tomorrow I will be making zucchini/corn fritters - I'm going to try cooking them with the waffle maker, which should hopefully be cooler than frying in a skillet.

Fuck yes, my bad, cook it!  Whatever starch you use needs to be cooked before hand.  This element is pretty flexible in the recipe though.  You can also use (cooked) couscous in a pinch.

FWIW, I'm not a fan of quinoa either but it's tolerable in tabouleh.

I finally got my hands on some fresh tofu, so was able to try Japanese hiyayakko (basically, cold cubed tofu with garnishes). It was really good! I topped it with grated ginger, toasted sesame seeds, sliced scallion and tamari.

Served with rice, a bean sprout salad and snap peas with chile and mint (probably not Japanese, but all items purchased at Asian grocer) as a crunchy contrast. Would have been vegan except that I sprinkled furikake on my rice that had bonito flakes in it.

I also made a nectarine/blueberry crisp, but we're too stuffed with tofu to eat it - I think it will be breakfast with some yogurt.

For dinner I'm guessing... more leftovers from the get-together. Among them butter beans marinated in coconut, lime and shallots, and a kale and swede salad with red pesto. We already finished off the best bits, like focaccia, aubergine rolls and stuffed mushrooms.

I still have several portions of lentil loaf with barley and sauce in the freezer that I made last week while SO was still out of town and I was challenging myself to live off the cupboards. Guess that will be lunches for the rest of the week!

haha.  A friend told me that freezing the bread, then thawing it out, and then toasting it makes the carbs not easily digested and broken down into sugar, and thereby creating carbs for the gut microbiome. Hence, this process of freezing and then toasting makes the bread a prebiotic.

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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Butternut squash hash made with coconut oil, sage, black pepper,  and bunching onions.  Sauteed onions are better but they don't agree with me so I use bunching onions. 

Saute the squash then add the onions and sage.   Once every thing cooked crack a couple of eggs over it and let them cook.   For the non vegetarian option add cooked bacon at the end.  We make it both ways depending on what we have on hand.

Made pasta fagioli last night, which was pretty yummy and a bit interesting due to the smoked paprika (SP). I'm not sure how I feel about SP. It tastes a little meaty to me. Strange. The recipe also called for nutritional yeast, which was a great addition and made the soup taste a bit cheesy. Good experiment.

I wish there was a community spice exchange near me. It would be great if you could buy a bottle of spices, take the amount you think you'll use and then leave the rest for other people to try. That way, spices would get used up instead of just sitting in the cabinet.

I’ve had a delicious green smoothie every morning this week.

- heaping spoonful of plain yogurt
- banana
- frozen pineapple, mango, and peach chunks (from TJs - probably about $2/bag which lasts 4-5 smoothies)
- several cups of kale (don’t pay a premium for the baby leaves that are easier to eat if it’s going in the blender anyway)
- scoop of protein powder (optional)
- enough coconut beverage (half gallon for $1.99 at TJs) to get it the desired consistency

$13 of ingredients makes at least 10 large smoothies - not the cheapest way to eat breakfast, but I love starting the day having already knocked out my recommended fruits and veg for the day.

If I have carrots in the fridge I’m not going to use in time, sometimes I shred them up and throw them in the blender too. Can’t even taste them.

The flavor was really good but the texture of the lentils was kinda dry and grainy. It didn't say what kind of lentils to use or how to cook them so I just boiled some brown lentils until they were soft. Lentil aficionados, any suggestions for how to get lentils with a better texture for salad? (different type and/or cooking technique?) I typically only eat lentils in soup.

This amazingly delicious lentil salad which is ridiculously nutritious and special enough to take over to someone's house for a shared meal.

@nessness - for salads do try Puy lentils, which are what this recipe calls for, and which are sturdier than brown or red lentils.

Vege quesadilla. Delicious!

Have a bowl of this hearty black bean quesadilla mix in the fridge:  https://www.budgetbytes.com/2012/02/hearty-black-bean-quesadillas/

Instead of pre-cooking the quesadillas, I just keep the interior mix in a big bowl, and make a quick hot and crispy quesadilla on the stove whenever I get hungry.  I also add chopped chipotle in adobo, and use the trader joe's roasted frozen corn, which is smoky and delicious.

I veganized my curried squash chowder recipe by replacing bacon grease with coconut oil and half and half cream with coconut milk. We are not vegan but I want to learn more vegan/veggie recipes. Almost as delicious as the original (nothing quite replaces bacon haha!). And filled with veggies from a homemade veggie stock to loads of onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Super filling especially since I added pureed celery, onions and carrots (from the veggie stock)

Gotta dig through this thread more for inspiration :)

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/04/19/french-mps-ban-misleading-vegetarian-food-products/

Hey you all, what do you think of this?

I had to get off Facebook because someone I know posted this in celebration, with many people joining in. I will say at the outset, yes, there are other, cheaper low impact ways to get protein than fake bacon, sausages, patties etc. However I grew up eating meat, and I am glad there are things like vegetarian sausage, mushroom based veggie burgers, and almond or rice milk to eat and drink when I feel like not eating meat products. However according to FB posters, the reason they support this, is NOT because they think meat eaters will be "confused" and think that soy milk actually has milk in it (which is the ostensible reason of the change in labeling), but that if you are vegetarian/vegan, you shouldn't WANT to eat things that are meat-like in any way! And since third world people can't eat real bacon and burgers, so eating fake bacon and burgers is offensive to those third world people. FFS.  Sample comments
"Eat what you want, but don't make a stink about animal rights, while munching fake "bacon" and "cheese"!" 
"I find these 1st World eating trends absurd (except for in cases of allergies) Starving people are not picky, and so much more of the word IS starving, and can't afford packaged organic hay products!"
"vegan bacon was made to look like a strip of unground animal"

Why do I find this kind of stuff incredibly judgemental and irritating?

@partgypsy the ban is dumb, and your friend's arguments are nonsensical. You can't talk about animal rights while eating fake bacon? What, are they worried you're going to hurt a pig's feelings?

I'm sure that the ban was influenced by lobbying from the meat and dairy industries, as the US dairy industry has been trying to get the government to ban calling milk alternatives "milk" for years.

Yes, it irritated me to no end, that words originally associated with animal products, like steak, sausage, burger, milk, butter, cream, are forever owned by the meat and dairy industry, and non- animal products are forbidden from using those words. The posters were also against the use of words coconut milk and coconut cream. But, there's no reasoning with someone who argues against statements that languages change and evolve, and words can have more than one meaning.

Thanks for the recipe! I love chickpea salad sandwiches. I make mine with capers, vegan mayo, dijon mustard,  sliced pickles and nori sheets in little pieces and fish spices (some mix) to make some sort of "tuna" salad. I make a whole big bowl full for 4 people and eat it all myself. I should make this version as well.

Vegan lentil soup.

https://cookieandkate.com/2015/vegan-lentil-soup-recipe/

This one uses curry and lemon juice together to make a very bright flavor. My favorite part is that it's good hot or cold. I don't use olive oil, I use anything that's good with high heat as you cook the onions and carrots in the oil. Also, collards don't cook as fast as this recipe suggests so unless you like crunchy collards, kale or precooked collards would be better.

Almost as delicious as the original (nothing quite replaces bacon haha!). And filled with veggies from a homemade veggie stock to loads of onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Super filling especially since I added pureed celery, onions and carrots (from the veggie stock)

Gotta dig through this thread more for inspiration :)

Well, this was many months ago. So sorry about taking so long to reply! I had gotten the recipe from Allrecipes 10-15 years ago but it's disappeared now. Here it is:

1. Cook 1/2 pound bacon (diced) gently over low heated for 5 minutes.
*To veganize, I replace this with a couple of spoonfuls of coconut oil.
2. Add 2 cups chopped onions, stirring for 10 mins
3. Stir in 2 teaspoons curry powder and 2 tablespoons flour, stirring for 5 mins
4. Add cubed pumpkins/squash (1 lb), cubed potatoes (2 large), and 4 cups chicken stock. increase heat to medium low and cook until tender, about 20-30 mins.
5. Add 1 cup half and half and season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 5 mins
*To veganize, substitute with coconut milk/cream
6. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and green onions.

I find this very filling. For low calories, skip the cream and reduce the potatoes, replacing it with more pumpkin / whatever squash is on sale.

Thanks @elaine amj ! In the meantime I did another try, this time roasting the pumpkin with a carrot, onion, potato and garlic and it was delicious and way more filling. A bit of parmesan on top didn't hurt either. I'll give your version a go next but roast everything first.

Last night I did red lentils in the slow cooker with stock, pumpkin, onion and lemon slices plus pepper, cumin, turmeric and coriander. Instead of blending it I just mushed it up with the spoon. It was ok but it needed the parmesan we put on top or maybe coconut cream would work. I used 2 cups of lentils to about a quarter of a Kent pumpkin and I think I'll do half a pumpkin next time to make it less floury. Two soup ladles of that and I was very full.

Beans and rice, the frugal vegan staple! Of course, there's also garlic, onions, tomatoes, spices, etc in there.

I'm just waiting on the slow release of my Instant Pot so I can eat the soup I just made.  Lentils, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, various spices, and some veggie broth.  So good (even in hot weather).

Oooh, I really am thinking about getting an instant pot. It seems like it would be a big time saver for me, because we eat so many beans. What are your favorite things to make in it?

Instant pit is perfect for stock, soup and beans. I also like it for hard boiled eggs, caramelized onions, making yogurt, rice, quinoa, congee, and slow-cooked dishes like pulled pork. Love it for ribs (I pressure cook and then broil in oven / grill on BBQ or fire). Also good for cheesecake.

It's a tool like anything else. It's faster for things that should be cooked low and slow but not good for things you want to monitor closely and check continuously.  Slower for cooking vegetables and simple-to-heat foods.

We love ours and use it all the time. Partly because it replaced my nonstick rice cooker with a gorgeous stainless steel pot that does the exact same thing.

I use my Instant Pot almost every day.  I like to use it for soups, chili, "burrito bowls" of rice and beans, quinoa, some pasta dishes (a delicious vegan tofu bolognese), marinara sauce.  I think my favorite thing though is the crusty artisan bread!  Delicious, and my friends ask me to make it over and over and want the recipe.

I saw today that Costco carries Instant Pots, but I found a better deal on eBay.

We made some grilled portabello mushroom burgers last night with some gouda cheese melted on top and a thick slice of tomato on a bun.  They were pretty awesome.

I use this one as the "basic outline" recipe, since I use whatever I happen to have (or add in things like chopped jalapenos!):

Breakfast of champions for two hearty eaters (or three ordinary mortals, or one very hungry hippo):

Take one can of coconut milk, mix with two cups of oatmeal, two heaping teaspoons of chocolate powder, and one large scoop of your favorite chocolate flavored protein powder.  Add in a tablespoon full of honey.  Heat and mix together over the stove on medium heat for about five minutes.  Stick into two bowls and top with grated chocolate chips and grated coconut.

We've been trying to eat less meat and dairy, more legumes and vegetables.  Tonight was chickpea tikka masala (vegan)over rice,  with homemade naan (not vegan).  It was delicious,  and I absolutely didn't miss the meat.  For me,  Indian food is all about dipping naan in sauce anyway.

I used the extra chickpeas to make a curried chickpea spread,  which is way better than I anticipated.  Chickpeas, salt, parsley,  shallot,  cucumber, curry powder,  mayo.   Not vegan, since I used regular mayo,  but that would be an easy swap.

My everyday vegan lunch burrito: brown rice cooked in vegetable broth, lentils, black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, cumin & Penzey's Southwest seasoning in a tortilla. I make ~15 at a time and freeze them. Not the most exciting but I don't have to think about lunch every morning!

I put a few slices of Ezekial whole grain bread in the oven with a small slice of Habanero Vermont Cheddar Cheese on top.
Once the cheese melted I then gobbed home-made guacamole on top of it - and then gobbled it up.
It was delicious.

Made a lasagna wit leftover vegan cheese sauce from the recipe from Ellen Fisher that we made to go with chili sin carne and potato wedges (weirdly good combo btw) the other day, wholegrain lasagna and red sauce with tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, bellpepper, onions and garlic and spices.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_6-ptBHStQ

See inspired recipe here: https://morgansveggielife.com/vegan-chipotle-cheese-sauce/

The vegan cheese sauce was fine but I couldn't really say it was extremely delicious though. Really healthy, that's for sure, with only potatoes and vegetables etc. We didn't have jalapeno so will add that next time or some chipotle (not easy to find in the Netherlands) and/or maybe some sundried tomatoes?

Did anyone try a recipe like this before that turned out really good or have any other good recommendations?

Today's breakfast is vegan. Kale, onion, mushroom and potato sauteed together topped with a homemade vegan Chipotle sauce (tofu, lime and canned Chipotle peppers). Best thing to ever happen to my greens intake as we probably eat it at least 4 times per week.

Dad and I had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant. I had grilled halloumi and garbanzo salad, a bowl of lentil soup, and a scoop of vegan peppermint ice cream for dessert. Coconut milk ice cream is the BEST (super creamy and no lactose!).

Yes I just made the same thing.

I used onions, broccoli, cubed winter squash, potatoes, rice, sweet potatoes, celery, mushrooms, mixed vegetables, and minced garlic and ginger.

It will last me a week for sure.

1/2 tsp smoky paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp salt
Twist of oil
2 cups water, obv; heat to boil, 30-33 min simmer, 5-8 min cool with top on. Stores well in fridge, reheats as a base for any meal.

We had this quiche wannabe for dinner tonight:

https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/impossibly-easy-vegetable-pie/569664c4-c405-4f0b-9fb6-720fd41bae39

It's not gourmet cooking but it's an easy comfort food, you can double it to make a larger pan, you can make it ahead of time--it might actually be better the second day--and you can freeze individual servings to pack for lunch.

It's easy to change the veggies or cheese to whatever you have on hand. I usually make it with broccoli and red peppers, but I've done cauliflower, mushrooms, and peas.

So It's worth trying? I just noticed they sell it in The Netherlands too at two restaurants and wanted to try it!

That’s pretty cool they sell it in the Netherlands. Yes, I think they are worth trying. They are high in fat but found out that it is due to the coconut oil used to give it the same juiciness effect as its counterpart. Enjoy!
