Easy, homemade plant based stir fry and veggie dumplings. Took less than 15 min and was delicious! Impressed myself. 🙈 I took Thai brown rice noodles and cooked for 5 min, rinsed and set aside. While they cooked, I heated up a frozen bag of stir fry veg. I then just mixed the veg & noodles together and added a store bought peanut/teriyaki sauce. Topped with cashews. Dumplings were frozen from Whole Foods. Bam. #veganstirfry#veggies#thaifood#easy

Happy Taco Tuesday! 🌮 Tonight's tacos are inspired by @chrissydietitian tacos she whipped up last week! I have been craving them ever since! After a long day at work these were super easy to make! I simply sauteed corn 🌽 + onion + bell pepper 🌶️ + mushrooms 🍄 together with some seasonings and added it with black beans on a 💯 whole wheat tortilla! Last, I topped it with a fresh tomato 🍅 (out of my garden!) and plain Greek yogurt! .
Incorporating beans into your diet provides you with a good source of protein but they are also rich in fiber, potassium, magnesium, folate, iron and zinc. Research has found eating beans can lead to reduced LDL cholesterol and reduce your risk for heart disease and diabetes! So who's going to add some beans into their #tacotuesday or #meatlessmonday ? 🙋🙌

Went to dinner with a friend last night (bc working on #worklifebalance over here 🙋🏻) so I'm cooking for #meatlessmonday in my kitchen tonight! Speaking of friends.. I have another friend who literally hates ketchup with a passion, and I can't stop laughing thinking about what her reaction to this photo will be 😂🙊
ANYWAY, here's what we've got: black bean burgers from @allrecipes (will link in stories) + roasted sweet potato wedges and green beans (both on 400 F, sp for 45 mins, green beans for 25 mins) all with @sirkensingtons ketchup (the best!) 🍔🍔

"Butter" Cauliflower with Coconut rice
This was last night's dinner, but having the leftovers for lunch now... and I coulda SWORN I posted about this recipe once before. Having looked back at my feed, I don't think that I have!
This is hands down, one of our family's top 3 vegan dishes. If you like Indian food, you gotta try this recipe! (LINK in comments!) I did make a few changes:
1) I skipped the added sugar. You really don't need it, the coconut rice and tomatoes are pretty sweet on their own.
2) I use one 15oz can of fire roasted tomatoes and one 15oz can of tomato sauce, as opposed to the large can it calls for.
3) I add in another vegetable, or double up on the cauliflower to balance out the sauce ratio. (In this batch, I chopped up a small rutabaga and turned out great!)
4) To keep the sauce thick, I only add in the creamy fat part of the canned coconut milk, and then add whatever's left to the rice as it finishes up cooking.
5) The recipe says to cover the tandoori seasoning on the cauliflower before baking... unnecessary step. Just throw the cauliflower (and anything else) naked in the oven, the tandoori in with the sauce, and then when the cauliflower is done baking, throw it in the sauce and let it simmer for a while longer so that it can absorb the flavors.
6) I used white Jasmine rice vs. The brown it calls for. Use what you have or what you prefer.
As is, the dish has a pretty good spice to it, but not so overpowering that the kids can't tolerate it. You can also tone down the chili powder and/or tandoori seasoning if you are sensitive to spicy dishes.
It makes a GREAT dish for #meatlessMonday or a new at home #vegan culinary adventure!
