easy peasy vegan bowls
easy peasy vegan bowls!
i tried a vegan cleanse (blog post about that coming soon) and it made me have to cook a lot more. so i thought i would share my three favorite easy peasy vegan bowls i’ve whipped up!
i’m only sharing three because i’ve whipped up a lot of not so good ones haha it’s all about trial and error.
1. roasted and toasted: broccoli, baby red potatoes and pinto beans!
– preheat your oven to 350/ dice up the brocc, slice up the tatos, and rinse the beans. I’m a fan of throwing them on foil on baking sheets with a drizzle of olive oil. i seasoned the broccoli with red pepper flakes, the potatoes with a little sea salt and the pinto beans with a dash of garlic powder. i’m all about the flavors! threw them in the oven for 30 minutes (the beans only need about 15) and there you have it, roasted and toasted and delicious!
2. the power bowl: quinoa, mustard greens, tomato, red pepper and avocado.
-so make the quinoa, directions on the bag haha, i used earthly choice because it’s no b.s. with the ingredients. i make a big bath because i use it in my other bowls, and add a little cayenne pepper and olive oil to it when done!
-wash and dry then sauté the mustard greens in some avocado oil. i recommend the high heat one by primal kitchen foods. I like them a little crispy but sauté to your taste preference.
-wash and chop the red pepper, tomato and avocado.
line the bowl with the quinoa, add the greens, pepper, tomato and avocado then sprinkle a little drizzle of olive and sea salt and bam!
3. sweet & spicy: spinach, avocado, chives + cannellini beans
-oven 350: toast the rinsed beans in cinnamon and cayenne pepper with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil! trust me 🙂 bake about 15 minutes and put them on top of some fresh baby spinach, sliced avocado and some diced chives. i drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top and voila!
(let me know if you make any/ any vegan bowls you love!?)
sometimes you just crave a big juicy cheesy bad for you burger .... this is not that... but this bad boy is still a burger, and it fits the gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian (vegan if you don't add the egg)
so here is my burger of the day. make it (under 10 ingredients and got them all at whole foods) or just enjoy looking at the food porn.
udi's gluten free hamburger buns / hilary's root veggie burger: stove top quick cook 3 minutes on each side / better bean co spread / primal kitchen avocado oil & avocado mayo / half an avocado because who doesn't want all the avocado/ a large brown fried egg / and daks salt free red spice!
