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?

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.

Can I get the bread recipe? That sounds really interesting!

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

Just made a really tasty adzuki bean and greens dish. It's really very good. http://www.eatori.com/2012/06/adzuki-beans-with-miso-and-greens.html

Tonight is Zoodles Lo Mein, with tofu instead of chicken. One of my very favorite low-cal, filling, yet mostly veggie dishes :)

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.

Potlikker soup - leftover collard greens (these cooked without meat, which is unusual for me), leftover blackeyed peas, Rotel. With corn chips because I just can't be bothered to make cornbread today.

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.

Recently discovered seitan, it's delicious!

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!).

After a week of vegan restaurants while traveling, about to dig in to our home staple, a big pot of vegetable soup. Almost a stew, really.

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.

Just finished tasty black beans on my favorite home-made rice.

Per cup of brown rice:
1/2 tsp San Antonio chili powder
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.

Just tried the beyond meat patties protein-style topped with vegan pepper cheese, avocado, tomato and grilled purple onion. Side of chipotle sweet potato fries. I was really impressed with the patties and cheese. Texture and taste are spot on. But they are a little pricey.

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!
