Peanut Noodles and Roasted Miso Broccoli

Yum yum yum!!!! I opened up the September issue of Jamie Magazine (got a year subscription for Christmas last year) and found these two recipes that were calling my name. So glad I tried them because together they were so good!

I added a touch of agave to my peanut sauce because I felt like it needed a little sweetness.

Making the miso sauce for the broccoli. Everything was very quick to get together. Minimal ingredients is great for me right now.

Before going into oven and after being drizzled with miso sauce.

Spaghetti Noodles tossed with the peanut sauce and then mixed with scallions and the roasted broccoli! Topped with sesame seeds.

My plate. ♥️♥️♥️❤️

Chili and Pumpkin Cornbread

When I saw Vegan Richa's recipe for pumpkin cornbread, I thought it was genius. How perfect for Fall with a bowl of spicy bean chili! 

I used fresh pumpkin purée that I made from my son's jack o lantern from Halloween and it was perfect.

They baked up so tender! One of the recipe modifications was to add a bit of sugar to the batter if you like it sweeter. I did this.

A vat of vegan chili. I cheated and used a packet of McCormick chili mix and added: onion, peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, soy chunks, pinto beans and kidney beans. It was easy and I didn't have to scan my spice rack for anything. I did season with salt.

This was the mix I used.

Soooooo goooood!

Make these today!

Beyond Burger.

The other day I was in Whole Foods and they had this huge display of these for $5.99 a pack. Picked one up as I've always wanted to try it.


Cooked. I melted Daiya on top of one burger.

The verdict: Very good, juicy even. It was very meat like though and I have to say that it freaked me out a bit. Even when it was cooking it kind of had a meat smell. Weird huh! I would buy them again but not often because of the price and high fat content. 

Definitely try it out if you find them at your local grocery!
