Tabbouleh lunch.

Lunch was delicious today. I made two Madeleine Olivia’s recipes. The pizza wrap and the tabbouleh. So yummy! I added fresh dill and used cilantro instead of parsley.

The Proudbird.

We went to The Proudbird near LAX. It’s a beautiful aviation events center and food hall. You can grab some lunch, have a seat and watch the planes fly into LAX through the large windows. My boy loved it. The food was delicious and fresh. They carry The Beyond Burger so I was super happy!

I love Madeleine Olivia’s YouTube channel and blog. The recipes are simple, quick and so tasty. Today I made the Dahl and it was sooo good! Http://www.madeleineolivia.co.uk

I added about a cup of tomato sauce to mine to make it saucier.

And a delicious salad with Morningstar Farms chickn nuggets and Annie’s Tuscany Italian dressing and Follow Your Heart ranch.

One pot peanut sauce noodles with chickpeas and frozen veggies

This was so delicious!!!! Adjust seasonings to your taste. I like extra Sriracha at the end.

One pot peanut sauce noodles with chickpeas and frozen veggies.

You will need:
Oil for the pan
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 thumb sized ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced 
1 bag frozen stir fry style mixed veggies 
1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
2 big TB peanut butter
2 TB soy sauce
1 TB maple syrup
1-2 TB (or less) chili garlic sauce or Sriracha 
1 TB rice vinegar 
2 tsp sesame oil
About 1/2 to 1 cup regular plain soy milk (or coconut milk)
2 package of dry instant noodles (discard seasoning packet)

In a small bowl mix together the peanut butter, soy sauce, maple syrup, chili sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and soy milk. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large pan (that has a fitted lid), a couple TB of vegetable or canola oil on high heat. Sauté onion, garlic and ginger until soft. Add frozen vegetables and stir fry until they start to soften. Add chickpeas. Add the small bowl of sauce ingredients to the pan and stir everything together. Add the two nests of dry noodles and cover with the veggies and sauce. If it looks on the dry side, add a few splashes of water and then cover the pan and cook for three minutes. After three minutes, uncover and stir. If the noodles aren’t cooked yet, cover again for a few minutes. Add more water or soymilk if you need to. Once everything is cooked, add the juice of one lime and stir again before serving.

Field Roast sausage and veggies

This was delicious. I love broiling vegetables and decided to add Field Roast apple sage sausage to the skewers. I brushed on a balsamic/soy sauce/olive oil/garlic marinade. So flavorful! It was good on rice. I imagine it would be great on a roll or in a pita.

I prepped cheese sauce and cashew sour cream from the Hot For Food cookbook yesterday to make these delicious nachos today. It also has refried beans, black beans, fresh pico de Gallo, guacamole and jalapeños.

I forgot to post this yummy potato leek and white bean soup that I made from the Vegan Goodness cookbook. I really love this book so far. It’s got basic stuff in it and it’s just the kind of food I want to cook.

Peanut noodles.

I made this easy peanut sauce noodle recipe from the Fix It And Forget It Vegetarian cookbook. I love cookbooks like these. The noodles were yummy. I recommend adding about a Tablespoon of agave syrup and half a squeezed lime to the sauce.
