Sunday breakfast and roasted veg.

I made Mary McCartney's Saucy Mushrooms and Tomatoes on toast. (Today's her birthday. Hoppy Birdy Mary!) One of my fave recipes from her book "Food".

Served on top of buttered whole grain toast and with vegi sausages and hashbrowns.

Roasted baby zucchini and green beans with garlic. These are for lunch.

Island's lunch and BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwich.

No blame veggie tacos- ask for no cheddar.

My second attempt at BBQ pulled jackfruit. I made it once before by just simmering the jackfruit in sauce and it was awful. This time I followed a Bosh video I saw on Facebook. I rubbed BBQ spice rub onto the jackfruit first then fried in oil. Then added hot sauce and lots of BBQ sauce and shredded it with a fork. 

Came out pretty tasty with creamy coleslaw.

Tuscan Bean & Cabbage Soup

Today I came home from work tired and hungry for something healthy and nourishing and tasty too. This is my fave soup by Linda McCartney. Instead of turnips, I used gold potatoes and cauliflower. I used water and 1 veggie bouillon cube. I also seasoned it with summer savory and Maldon Salt. So delicious. I ate two bowls!

Zankou falafel and breakfast,

Went to Zankou yesterday with my husband. He gets chicken. I get falafel! This is the falafel plate which comes with so much! 6 falafel balls on top of salad and pickles, hummus, tahini sauce and pita. We always get a side of their excellent muttabal (eggplant dip) and rice. And last but not least the best garlic sauce ever!

My breaky this morning trying out the Yves veggie sausage patties. I also made some cheesy tofu scramble with Field Roast cheese and toast. All very deliciously filling.

Easy vegan danish.

Vegan cream cheese and fruit Danish made out of crescent roll dough. Not exactly like Danish more like a bread, but still delicious! I used this recipe and substituted vegan ingredients.

Taco night.

I was in the mood for cheap crunchy tacos after passing by two Del Taco restaurant s on the way home. Swung by the market to pick up a box of taco shells and vegan ground crumbles. Ralph's market sells their store brand for a few bucks and its vegan! (Take that, Morningstar Farms!)

I cooked the crumbles with onion, garlic, bell pepper, black beans and spices.

Served with lettuce, fresh salsa, guacamole, and Tofutti sour cream.

Tofu loaf and champ.

Tofu loaf with chickpeas and veg. Ketchup glaze on top! This loaf makes delicious sandwiches! I used the Magical Loaf Studio.

This is an Irish dish called champ. It's a looser version of mashed potatoes with scallions. Yummy.
