Two bean veggie chili and chocolate granola.

Not the best pic but this deliciousness here is a veggie two bean chili. I adapted a Happy Pear recipe which doesn't call for chili powder, but instead smoky paprika, cumin and coriander which made it mild enough to give it to my son. He ate it with brown rice. 

My dinner bowl: chili, brown rice, salad, avocado, beet kraut. Not pictured: Sriracha squirted on top of chili for some heat. It was very yummy.

This is the Midnight Crunch Chocolate granola from Chocolate Covered Katie. I so wished I had freeze dried raspberries for this like in the book. Still it was delicious with cold rice milk.

Easy dinner: tofu scramble

I felt uninspired and not really crazy hungry tonight so I threw this scramble together with what I had in the fridge: firm tofu, onions, zucchini, kale and red peppers. Seasoned with The Vegg, soy sauce and pepper. Then I topped it with salt, dried chili flakes and nutritional yeast. Then I doused the whole thing with ketchup and Tabasco! It came out very tasty!

Epic sausage sandwich!

Tofurky Italian sausage, spinach, avocado, carrot salad, sundried tomato-cilantro pesto, Sriracha ketchup and mayo on dill rye. It was amaaaaaaazing!

Avocado toastie with sundried tomato cilantro pesto and fresh marinated grape tomatoes on flax bread. I knocked out the pesto super quick using: a bit of pine nuts that I blended into a powder first, a clove of garlic, handful of cilantro, about 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes in oil and about 2-3 TB of the same oil, a squeeze of lemon, and a pinch of salt. Whizzed in the Baby Bullet and ta-da! It made a great spread for the toast.

Oven baked ratatouille.

Happy Pear recipe:

In progress. This recipe is great because of a whole bulb of roasted garlic that goes in at the end.

I realized that I used too much water in my recipe because I was meaning to go halfway, since I was not adding any potatoes. So after I stirred it up I added a bit of tomato paste and a glug of olive oil and popped it back in the oven without the lid on.

Finished! Still a bit watery but still tastes nice!

Foods on Father's Day.

Had a nice Father's Day with Mr. Mouse and Baby Mouse. We are so grateful to have this baby and my husband was especially happy to have a special day dedicated to the love of his son. Here's a cute pic of the two guys from a couple weeks ago. So much joy. 😊

Today I pretty much ate whatever leftovers I had in the fridge. 

Breakfast was a yummy scrambled tofu sandwich with extra vegan mayo and ketchup.

Lunch was a salad with roasted veg, Tofurky sausage and Daiya cheddar.

Dinner was this. It was so good!!!!

I did make dessert! This is the coffee cake recipe from Vegan Brunch.

I swirled some strawberry jam in the batter but you can't see it much. Next time, more!

Falafel wrap

My go to falafel these days is the Sweet Potato Fritter recipe by The Happy Pear on YouTube. They're delicious and my son loves them. This was my wrap for lunch. It has the sweet potato falafel, hummus, sriracha, cucumbers, arugula, homemade tzatziki (vegan mayo, garlic, lemon juice, chopped cucumbers and soymilk) and beet kraut. 

Yum yum yum. My son had a mini one with hummus, tzatziki and falafel only.

Love this stuff!

Chickpea Tikka Masala

This recipe is from The Happy Pear's new book Recipes For Happiness. It is phenomenal! The coconut milk makes it super creamy and the spices are perfect. I added a handful of dehydrated soya chunks to beef it up a bit.

Aaaaand I had it in toast! So delicious!

I love salad pizza.

I love making and eating this. On the base I spread Trader Joes Kale Cashew pesto. 

Quick recipe from The Happy Pear:

1 1/2 cups white flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tb olive oil
1/2 cup water
Pinch of salt

Mix and bring together into a ball of dough. Roll out the dough very thin onto parchment paper on a baking sheet, bake at 450 F for 8-10 minutes until crisp. Top with pesto and fresh salad ingredients. Drizzle with balsamic, olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slice into pieces and enjoy!

Lasagna again.

For my boy because he's getting over a bug and hasn't had much of an appetite. 

He loves lasagna and he did ate a big slice for lunch!

My lunch. 😊
