Last week I made a wonderful meal of steamed veggies (peppers, onions, and spinach) on top of quinoa with a simple tahini dressing/sauce (tahini, garlic, Bragg’s). It was delicious when warm and then the next day for lunch when it was cold.
Last weekend I made some delicious dahl from my new Forks Over Knives cookbook that I got from my sister for Christmas (Thanks Ash!). I was planning to make home-made naan to go with the dahl, but I got lazy and had a double lentil meal with some lentil rolls a friend randomly gave to me earlier that day. I had an afterthought that it would be good with quinoa. By the time I made the quinoa, I was full, so I ate it the next day with the cold dahl (I don’t have a microwave) and it was STILL delicious! Dahl is a great meal and can be eaten for a few days. That is just one of the awesome pluses about vegan food is that it takes a long time to go bad!
This week I had an unexpected weekend at home because of bad weather cancelling my plans to see my beau who lives out of town. It’s maybe a good thing that I stayed home and that it was hella cold outside because I had a long to-do list of indoor tasks that needed to get done. I’m not going to lie, but my food intake hasn’t been the best this week/weekend. When I needed a quick, easy, and filling lunch, I made banana pancakes (a recipe I memorized from How it All Vegan – my most used vegan cookbook ever) and I made them all for me! I made BIG HUGS pancakes! Three of them. And I ate them all! I hardly ever make them just for me, so it was kind of a treat. Here they are in all their glory:
