Now that it’s getting colder, I am starting to crave these warm, hearty dishes, mostly containing pumpkin or fresh spinach. I was inspired on Pinterest and then just grabbed a pack of baby spinach on my next trip to the store.
Ever since watching the movie “Green Fried Tomatoes”, I have been wanting to try this Southern classic. I have never actually found them on any menu, but eventually made them myself after Corey shared them on her Instagram.
Curry is a classic that everyone should be able to make! This is one of the dishes I did not have to adapt very much when going vegan because the only thing you need to do is leave out the meat or fish. If you want, you can replace it with tofu, but even just with veggies it will taste good.
When I make sushi, it always reminds me of my time in San Diego because that is where I made it for the first time. And I also had a sushi night with my 3 roomies there, when we all made sushi together, which was nice! 🙂
When first going vegan, it might be hard to find yummy and healthy vegan options for lunch at work or school, especially if you’re not privileged to have a big variety of options. I felt the same way again when I decided to go gluten-free for a few weeks, so meal prepping for work became a weekly ritual.
I love chickpeas because of their consistency and versatility! You can make hummus out of them, marinate them or roast them with spices. Chickpeas are rich in fiber, protein and manganese and can help to increase satiety, boost digestion and help to keep blood sugar levels stable. They are a real multitalent for the vegan diet!
I like meals that consist of just a big bunch of veggies & grains in a bowl. They’re simple, they taste good and they are super nutritious. This thai-inspired bowl packs loads of protein thanks to the quinoa and is a light summer meal!
Risotto to me is a super indulgent meal, perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon, enjoyed with a glass of white wine. I am definitely a risotto-fan, although I have to admit I’ve never made one myself. Don’t ask me why.
This past easter, we were discussing what to have as an easter meal. Of course, any traditional dish involving meat was off the table and we couldn’t think of a particular dish that seemed fitting for easter. So we ended up just cooking what we felt like eating and it turned out delicious!
For some reason, I am not really craving pasta anymore these days, and I actually think that’s a good thing! (Pizza is a whole other story tho..) 🙂 However, I discovered a recipe for a pasta bake with zucchini and also just bought some gluten-free, tri-colored pasta I wanted to try.
