Simple breakfast.

Today I had a very simple breakfast. I felt like something fresh and light this morning. I just had some pineapple, macerated strawberries (99 cents at Aldi’s), sunflower kernels, chia seeds, and fresh mint. Pretty self explanatory really. It was really tasty and exactly what I needed! This was one of the best pineapples I have had in a long time!

Toasted bread and Chutney.

First off I’m not really sure if this would be considered a Chutney or not. That’s what I’m calling it though because I didn’t know what else to call it. It had apples, tomatoes, onion, garlic, pepper, salt, mushroom broth (see last Wednesday’s post), lemon juice, paprika and kale. I cooked the onion first then added the garlic until it blossomed. After that I added everything else and let it simmer until the flavors melded together. I added the kale at the end so it kept some texture. I just sliced up some baguette, rubbed with oil and toasted until crispy and golden brown. Then I rubbed them with a garlic clove when they came out of the oven. It was a tasty little dinner.

Black pepper tofu and sticky rice.

Dinner was black pepper tofu and sticky rice. I found some black pepper sauce at a shop here and thought I would give it a try. It would of been better if I hadn’t put so much on or had the tofu mixed in with some veggies to mellow it out. It was still good though. I topped it with the green onions and that helped some. Next time I will use less or mix in some plant milk to thin it out and make it a little more mellow. I also had sticky rice with some sweet chili sauce on top. Having that helped some too. I would go back and forth between the two. It was a nice little meal all together though. You don’t know unless you try it.

All I did for the tofu was brown it in a skillet then add the sauce in and toss it around until the sauce was hot. This was a very easy meal. I’ll have to play around with making my own black pepper sauce.

Roasted vegetables! Easy and delicious side

Today I am sharing a recipe for roasted vegetables. A easy side to serve with any meal. I love roasting vegetables. Just toss them with some oil and herbs. A little salt & pepper maybe and put them in the oven until tender and golden brown.

I made this to go with dinner one night. It’s roasted zucchini, summer squash, and potato’s. Just cube the vegetables into similar sized pieces so they cook evenly. In a bowl mix 2 Tbls olive oil with salt and pepper to taste. As minced rosemary, oregano, and thyme to the bowl. Mix it up then add your vegetables and coat them good. Then just turn them out onto a baking sheet and put into a 350 degree preheated oven until tender and lightly golden brown. Be sure to toss them during the cooking process to make sure the brown evenly.

Leftover’s Burrito

Recipe Wednesday! Today we have a burrito made with leftovers. I always have some rice in the fridge and I had some left over roasted eggplant and onions from the night before. To start off I wanted to freshen things up and give a slight flavor change. I started off by chopping some jalapeno, yellow bell pepper, and garlic. I add the peppers to a pan with a little coconut oil and let them cook a little. I wanted to still have some bite though. Then I added the garlic and leftover eggplant and onions to the pan. I added a little water and let everything get to know each other and heat up. While this was going on I put some of my rice in a small pot with some water to re-hydrate it and bring it back to life. I had some leftover sliced radish and green onions from the night before also. I sliced some more of each though so I would have more. I had already opened a can of black beans by now also. I just scoop them out of the can with a slotted spoon. After everything was heated I Layered it on the tortilla, add hot sauce, and rolled it up tight. I had enough for two burritos and after I made  both I wiped the pan out and add a little more oil. I placed the burrito in the pan seam side down once the pan heated up. Let that side get crisp then flipped it over. I love doing this to burritos. I just sliced them on the bias and enjoyed!
