This is where I fell in love with vegan food.
Lasagna (Living Food)
almond and macadamia cheese, spinach macadamia cream sauce, housemade tomato sauce, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, olives, basil
Soupa Simple Soup! (I'm sorry, sometimes you just have to make terrible puns )This is my creamy tomato & red lentil soup. The creamy element comes from blending a piece of bread, I told you it was simple
If anyone wants the recipe I'll write it below
One tablespoon of non-dairy margarine
One small brown onion, sliced
Two cloves of garlic, sliced
500ml hot vegetable stock
400g/14oz chopped tomatoes
100g/3.5oz red lentils, rinsed
One piece of white bread, torn into pieces
Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over a medium heat, once melted add the garlic and onion. Cook for five minutes
Add the stock, tomatoes and lentils, cook with a lid on for 25 minutes
After 25 minutes, add the bread and blend until smooth
Mince Pie Recipe
1 cup raisins
1 cup sultanas
1 cup currants
1 1/2 cup orange juice
2 apples (chopped)
3 tsp mixed spice
add all ingredient to a pan on the stove and cook on medium until everything is nice and soft, be sure to stir every now and then so it doesn’t stick to the bottom
250g plain flour
50g Apple sauce
7-10 tbsp cold water
add the flour, apple sauce and sugar to a bowl
add 1 tbsp of the water at a time until it starts to ball up
roll it out thin on a floured surface and use a cutter to create your pie base and put in to a shallow muffin/cupcake tray
once you have done the bases roll out the scrap pastry again for your tops you can use a different fancy cutter it just a normal one
use some plant milk to glaze the top
bake in a pre heated oven for about 20 minutes at 220c/425f/gas mark 7
take them out of the tin once cooked as they will start to sweat
Apple Sauce Recipe
4 large apples
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cold water
peel, core and chop your apples and cook in a pan with the lemon juice and water on the stove at medium heat for about 15 minutes until soft
stir in the sugar and allow to cook down a bit then transfer to a blender (or use and immersion blender if you have one that’s what i did) and blitz until smooth
Because the limit on smoothie consumption does not exist. To any of my friends, my roommates, my teammates, my coworkers, or my classmates it will come to no surprise to hear that I'm in a long-term committed relationship with my @thenutribullet I use it on average 3 times a day. I will use it to make breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even dessert! Often times you'll see me sipping on a smoothie in my 8:30 am class or driving in the car with smoothie in hand, and you don't see me with my smoothie it's probably cause I already drank it and it's in my bag.
Vanilla Almond Berry Smoothie:
1 cup mixed berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)
1 cup spring mix lettuce
1 tbsp almond butter
1 scoop of #vega_team viva vanilla protein
Water added until desired consistency is achieved
The most common question we get asked is 'which vegan cheese do you use?' No vegan cheese available on the market has the taste, texture and meltability that matches true mozzarella. That's why we spent 2 years developing our own. Our plant mozzarella uses various plant-based oils, organic brown rice, and chickpeas among other ingredients to create the perfect vegan alternative to mozzarella. What's more, it's half the fat of normal mozzarella with no compromise on taste. #plantpioneers
Ooey gooey action shot thanks to @vptr.
Do you ever get smacked in the face with gratitude? Do you ever find yourself undeservingly gifted with a blessing even amidst a season where your heart is grumpy? My sweet momma came to my house yesterday to clean to give me a break from the overwhelming schedule and because I have an irrational fear of the mice in our house. My heart has been grumpy. I know I don't deserve one lick of kindness. And I've been condemning myself as unworthy. Yet I am filled with nothing more than gratitude in the moment. Here I find myself learning that servanthood must trump feelings of being ill equipped, and that our expressions of kindness and compassion and generosity are more important than accepting our icky feelings. We have been lavished with such love, even in our most undeserving states. Express it, bundle it up, overfill to the brim with that knowledge and spread it all around.
