“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.

BASIC KALE SALAD

Little late but better than never … thanks for the reminder @macyydecarlo to post! This was my lunch, but it could easily serve as a dinner if you add more tofu and grains to it! It was super simple and quick to make (i made it in the 5 mins between my classes haha). See the recipe below.

-tofu (air fried or roasted with tamari and nutritional yeast)
-grain mix from Whole Foods ( previously on my story, will post on highlights)
-red onion
-cranberries
-roasted Pepitas in rosemary and olive oil

Dressing: I did cheat and didn’t make my own dressing whoops. Instead I used the Trader Joe’s green goddess dressing! I highly recommend. Also I squeezed half of a lemon on top to give it that extra something.

LENTIL SALAD.
.
I never really use lentils but I had a can of them so figured I would experiment with them a bit, especially since they are SUCH a great source of protein for plant based eaters. Also they just taste amazing. When buying canned beans make sure they have NO ADDED SALT, they can be very sneaky about that. So for this recipe I chopped up some purple cabbage (wish I cut it a bit finer), carrots, red onion, and celery. I added these to 1/2 can of lentils and then topped it with some parsley and cumin roasted sweet potatoes. For the dressing I simply mixed tahini, red wine vinegar, mustard, and since I had extra of my cilantro lime sauce I mixed that in too (but that’s completely optional). This meal made a lunch + some! Inspired by @reciperunner and @vegetariangastronomy Enjoy the recipe below 🙂
