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! 🙂
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!
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!
To give you a better impression of what I eat on a day when I am home and able to cook for myself, I thought I could start a “What I Eat In A Day”- series. So here is a compilation of what I ate on a particular day in March. Let me know if you like these kinds of posts and want to see more of them!
Although I find myself eating much healthier than before I was vegan, I do crave the occasional “junk food” now and then. For those exact situations, these tempeh nuggets come in pretty handy.
These quesadillas are the perfect comfort food to me! They are easy to make and so satisfying. If you want to make them a little healthier, just add some fresh baby spinach in the quesadillas or a salad on the side! They are also great to prepare in advance and take to work/school the next day.
I love burgers! I always have. That hasn’t changed since I went vegan because there are plenty of options to make a vegan burger. In the beginning I just got those veggie patties from the store, but ever since making these sweet potato patties, those store-bought ones have lost their appeal…
I have always been a fan of potato wedges, but somehow never really tried making them myself…don’t ask me why! For the past few weeks since I first made these, I have been obsessed with homemade potato wedges. It’s such a quick and easy recipe and perfect for those nights when you don’t feel creative and just want to munch on something 😉
These sweet potato chips are a wonderful snack or side dish! They are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, and are sweet and salty at the same time! Just slice a sweet potato, throw it in the oven and you’re done.
This hearty chili is perfect for a cold winter day! It’s spicy enough to warm you up from the inside, and contains loads of veggies to boost your immune system. I admit it is a little bit of work, but it’s so worth it once you have it on your plate! 😉
