SHREDDED BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER SALAD (w/ date paste!)
.
This recipe was so fun to make. It was a good reminder of summer freshness while easily pairing with warm comfort foods. Thanks to Trader Joe’s and their packaged broccoli slaw this recipe only took a few minutes to make. It’s also great for meal prep since the slaw does not get soggy easily. If you are interested in this recipe scroll down!
.
Recipe:
-1/2 package of broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s
-1/2 cauliflower head finely chopped
-2 tbsp date paste
-1 tbsp tahini
-1/2 sliced avocado
-1 finely chopped date
-1/4 red onion chopped finely
.
Clearly you need a good knife for this recipe as you will need to finely chop many vegetables! This salad is soooo delicious and can be incorporated into a dish as a side slaw or even into a larger salad base as a topping that gives the salad an added sweetness and crunch. Give this slaw a try and send me a pic/ comment your review!

VEGAN SAUSAGE + PEPPERS
.
This is a classic turned vegan and healthy!!! I actually love sausage do being vegetarian / vegan can be hard … but this vegan sausage makes it so easy! It actually tastes just like sausage and browns amazingly. To add sweetness to this dish I added a few tablespoons of my date paste. The instructions to make date paste will be on my story. If you do not have dates you can use maple syrup or if you do not want any sweetness you can just use sriracha! If you want to make this the recipe will be below!
.
Recipe:
-1 pepper
-1 vegan sausage (from Trader Joe’s)
-1 tbsp tomato paste
-1/2 yellow onion
-2 tbsp date paste
-red pepper flakes
-salt + pepper
-drizzle of sriracha

“SOY CURLS AND BRUSSELS”
.
I don’t know about you, but I never heard of soy curls until recently and when I did I decided to purchase them on amazon right away! I will admit they sat in my pantry for about 2 months because I had no idea what to do with them, but recently I decided to open them up and give them a try and they are amazing! They are basically just soy protein shaped into chicken like pieces. All you do is soak them in water then either sauté them in a pan with oil or roast them in the airfryer like I did. Anyways, if you are interested in the recipe please scroll below:)
.
Reciped:
-Brussels
-soy curls
-sriracha
-broccoli (I used frozen)
-tamari
-salt and pepper
-sesame oil
-everything but the bagel seasoning
-cauliflower rice ( I didn’t have it, but it would be so good with this!)
*i just mixed everything together and roasted them in the airfryer for about 15 mins at 350! You can roast in the oven as well, but I recommend pan frying the soy curls if you don’t have an airfryer.

FALL HARVEST STEEL CUT OATS
.
.
Nothing sets you up for a good morning like some steel cut oatmeal … high in protein, nutrients, and the perfect base for some even yummier ingredients! Even though it does not feel like fall, I am already in that fall mindset so I made this oatmeal slightly fallish (Ik that’s not a word lol) by adding cranberries, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds! Check out the recipe below 🙂
.
.
Ingredients:
-steel cut oats
-dates
-dried cranberries
-almonds
-pumpkin seeds
– @arbonne vanilla protein powder
-honey (or agave)
-optional, but a great option, is to add quinua!
.
Instructions:
-heat up oats with water and add in some chopped dates, cranberries, and cinnamon. Heat in pot until creamy. Serve in a bowl and top with desired ingredients (such as these!) and drizzle with honey or agave. Super easy, so delish!!!!
