Protein packed tempeh kale salad with lemon dressing is a nice refreshing salad. I was skeptical of raw tempeh so I made the dressing first and then added the tempeh to marinade. I was surprised it was quite good! I sprinkled mine with dried cherries and walnuts. Definitely a keeper of a recipe... tastes like it took way more effort that in it did... so easy!
I love salads but don't make them as often as I should. This is some great salad inspiration here with this Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Apple Farro Salad.
Sweet potatoes come local this time of year in North Carolina but the rest can come from Trader Joe's!
This simple combo is definitely worth a repeat. I've never myself put farro in a salad but I will do it again!
Soup & Sandwich night on the menu on Buzzfeed's $20 week of vegan meals!.. this was my splurge. Bread. I went with a local sourdough from Duke's Bread. Roasted Carrot Soup with Carmelized Onion & Hummus Sandwich was the meal plan. It looks like a recipe for college students as it was mentioned it was for making in between classes. It was simple, needed more seasoning so I spiced it up. Sandwich I went open faced style but was an interesting idea.
I love looking at photos of beautiful vegan bowls online and ordering them at restaurants but I've never made one before! This was fun and had me wondering why I don't have more bowls in my life. I chopped the veggies up for easier eating and topped with siracha. Leftovers rolled up well in a tortilla! Buzzfeed's Trader Joe's Challenge Protein Packed Vegan Sweet Potato, Kale and Chickpea Bowl I would make again. I paired it with a brew from back home that is a 2016 finalist in one of my favorite lists, the Good Food Awards.... a Lakefront Brewery Growing Power Organic Farmhouse Pale Ale.
This is a great healthy use of zucchini. Mixing with chickpeas and Greek yogurt makes for a filling meal. I used much less mint then advised (I'm not a huge fan of mint in my savory dishes). I just put a little shredded mint in each patty and it was a nice touch. The leftover pitas held together well in plastic wrap and were still good the next day.
is the smallest kitchen ever. We used to watch those decorating shows that said they were doing small kitchens and then could see that 4 of my kitchens would fit in their "small kitchens".
