Crockpot Minestrone

Last night I threw a bunch of veg I needed to use up into the crockpot to make minestrone soup. I used onion, garlic, celery, carrots, yellow squash, green beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, mushroom broth powder, water, olive oil, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Cooked on low for 12 hours then added chopped spinach at the end.

With a blob of spinach pesto. Yum!

More Yums.

This was dinner tonight. I had no idea what I was going to eat then remembered I had a Dr. Praeger burger in the freezer. I sautéed some mushrooms and broke out the homemade spinach pesto. It was so good!

Spinach pesto couscous with mushrooms and garlic. Really delicious.

Breakfast veggie tacos I had on Sunday.

Banana muffins from 1,000 Vegan Recipes are so perfect!

Lebanese maghmour.

Spaghetti marinara from Mama’s Pizza. So good!

Boca chicken patty with spinach almond pesto from 1,000 Vegan Recipes.
This was delicious. I like to add lemon juice to my pesto for some brightness.

Have you ever sprinkled Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning on a buttered bagel? To die for!

Zuppa di Verdure

I made a delicious soup today using a recipe from the latest issue of Vegan Food and Living. I had to sub a few things: cabbage instead of leek and spinach instead of kale. I added yellow squash too. I didn’t use dried beans, instead just one can of white cannellini beans. Came out so yummy!

Good pizza.

Went to our local pizzeria for lunch and this was a new combo of toppings for me: sundried tomato, spinach and garlic, extra sauce, no cheese. It was sooo good!

Potato biscuits and chili.

I made Isa’s potato biscuits today because I had leftover mashed potatoes. They came out really tender and yummy! The recipe is here:
I would have made the stew but I haven’t gone grocery shopping.

Instead I plopped the biscuits into a bowl of canned chili. Was yum! (Vietti Artisan Fire Roasted Chili with Marsala wine)

Some foods from the weekend.

This is the Don Lee vegan burgers that you can get from Costco. It was pretty good though not a Beyond Burger!

TTLA from Whole Foods. So yum! Don’t forget the pickle!

Veganomicon’s Garlic rice minus the saffron, roasted carrots, chickpea curry, stir fry veggies. The rice was amazing!
